      these two hands happened in like 2 minutes and I was like "WTF"

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP3 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, A.
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, CO folds, BU calls $0.20, SB calls $0.18, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0.65) 9, 6, 7 (3 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0.50, BU raises to $1.00, SB calls $1.00, Hero folds.

      Turn: ($3.15) A (2 players)
      SB checks, BU bets $1.45, SB raises to $4.71, BU folds, SB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $4.6.

      I think I was little bit sleepy and thought that BU check/raised me on the flop and that I was the button and the button was BB. Well, being sleepy while playing poker is -EV. As played I think laydown was bad, but what if it was like I thought that it was in that moment and I was the BU, BU was the BB and SB would be UTG? Would a laydown be correct then?

      Final Pot: $4.22.
      Results follow:

      UTG1 shows a straight, nine high(8 7).
      BU shows a straight, seven high(4 6).

      UTG1 wins with a straight, nine high(8 7).

      Here I think I played correctly. Turn completes both draws, so i just checked and folded.

      Depends how loose you think these guys are, if they're insane it's fine just 3-bet and get it in. Otherwise truthfully AA doesn't have that great equity on that board and you will very rarely like the turn card, so your two options are making a slightly loosing fold on the flop or commit $6 more by 3-betting. With it being 3-way, if you don't think these guys are bad enough to take that line with a lot of worse hands it's not at all a bad options to get away instead of putting in $6 to hopefully be flipping against a big draw, and if you're wrong you have like 3% equity.


      Fine by me, NH.

      Hope it helps.

      First hand I would reraise I don't see 85 or 8T in there range and you have a backdoor flush. Fine to ship first hand imo.

      Second hand I think bet/fold turn is an option depending on stats and reads.
