      Hand 1.)
      With UTG raising you have to put him on AK, AQ and TT+. With these callers you decide if your Fold Equity is good enough then you push, otherwise that might be a spot to call here on the BU and playing only for Set Value.

      A normal 3x reraise is no option here, since you are Pot committed anyway.

      So I like that hand.


      Hand 2.)
      Nice hand. :)

      You only have potsize left on the Flop, so no need to c-bet. If he calls the flop he calls on the Turn as well. So your push is right here, especially on that board. They often also call a Flushdraw. If he flopped a Flush its but luck and you still have some Outs for your Full House.

      1) Agree with Berlin. Just nut sure if I can fold jacks, if on the flop I don´t hit my set, but I still have overpair^^
