      the hand is not in the SHC to raise from MP but is it oke to diviate from SHC here? on the flop i had one over card and i thought to go all, in this way if he has overcards he would not have the odds to call it , also it was a good flop to go all in on with just one over card no? what do you think ?

      The problem with 88/77/99 most of the times is that you 1) see an overcard , 2) you rarely improve (compare that to AK/AQ where you flop basically the nuts as SS)

      So in hand #1, I would just fold because there is also a greater probability that someone behind you (now it is Mp3,CO,BTN,Sb,BB) has a better hand

      As played in hand #1, I would go broke as well with a 9 as overcard


      Hand #2 is similar to hand #1 so what I just typed for hand #1 also applies for Hand #2.
      Not to make you more spewy but hands like KJ/KQ/AK/AQ are hands you want to deviate with. hands like 66-99 are hands that have significant equity PRE-flop hence you want to go All-in with those hand on that street. On later streets, their equity is either pretty low or around 50%.
