      Seemed like he wanted to protect smt or just to put all his money in on the turn- easy conclusion he should have set. Not sure calling flop, because I only have top pear weak kicker, but seemed like he was on the draw or maybe had smt like KJ, KT. So smt I have to call his push on the turn, if he is aggressive player.

      Bad, bad flop. I think that I can´t beat anything on the river and I should even fold, if he makes 1/2 pot size bet.

      You should definately bet more on the flop. Anyway it's a good fold on the turn readless, I guess. Oh, you have a great kicker here.

      About the second hand, you should have bet more on the flop as well and it's not even such a bad flop, since it gives you TPTK with BDNFD. You're beating loads of hands here, all PP's (unless he has aces), Kx. Turn card is a great card for you since it gives you the draw to the nut flush, might even raise his bet sometimes here. Obvious call if he fires 1/2 pot on the river and on this limit I might even call his pot bet, just to make a note on him. Although I think that he has a flush more often than a jack here.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Hand 1) bet $1 on the flop and call that raise (because he could raise with a flush draw). On the turn you have an easy fold.

      Hand 2) I think the bet size is ok because any J beats you and you are either way ahead or way behind. On the turn you have to call the small bet because you have the nut flush draw. On the river it's an easy fold after he bets that big. But even a half pot size bet would be a fold imo because he showed strength on every street.

      Good luck at the tables!
