      Can I ever expect worse hands to pay me off? It's easy 3bet and c-bet on the flop, but I'm not sure about my turn play, when I get reraised I guess I'm beaten most of the time, but I'm already pot commited anyway.. what would be the best play in those spots ?

      Hey!

      Like you said, you're already commited. If you hit a TP/TK in a 3b pot you're commited most of the time. It's hardly ever wrong going broke with these hands in a 3b pot. People will have worse TP, some draws and maybe even worse pairs. The pot is bigger and people have a hard time letting go of their made hands.

      I think you played both hands well.
      On hand 1, however, I'd have cb a little bit bigger, so that I can directly shove turn. That's because there are some possible draws out there andI don't want the board to get super scary for my opponent =)

      On hand 2, it's the contrary, the board is super dry and therefore, I'd bet small flop and turn and shove river. I'd probably go for something like: $1,40; $2,80; shove remaining stack.

      Cheers!
