      Push all-in for fold equity and for value. Correct raise would be 5$, since you only have 7,68$,then push pre-flop. No-one would fold on the flop for another 2-3 dollars.

      You have more then enough to leave the table anyway and you have Aces after a Raise and a Coldcaller, so please go All-In where you have the best hand instead of making a min-reraise here and be pot committed anyway on any flop with no Fold Equity postflop.

      And with Aces you want to be against as less players as possible. HU or against 2 players is ok, more is not good for you.

      Hi gotsa7887!

      Hand 1) as already mentioned: push all-in preflop.

      Hand 2) Bet more on the flop to protect your hand on this draw heavy board which means: go all-in directly.

      Btw: Please don't post any results because the advice you are getting might be biased.

      Good luck at the tables!

      Puschkin already made my job for Hand 2.). Just go All-In here on that kind of flop, to protect better against draws or get paid of by weaker made hands. If you run in a Set its just bad luck.
