      1. SB 8/5/2; BB 29/21/1; UTG 22/19/2

      Firs I wanted to 3-bet cause UTG opens loose but the I talked myself out of it cause he folds to 3-bet only 3%. This could be my first mistake cause I'm IP. After everybody check flop and SB bets turn I think fold is the best option, cause he is a nit so I can only hope for split, second mistake. River is obviously third mistake.

      2. BB 35/28/6; BU 23/4/0

      I think this one is ok. Preflop is standard, didn't wont to C-bet with two callers. On turn it is ok to call cause this guy is super aggressive if everybody check, I didn't raise cause of pot control and BU is passive. I think river call is still ok cause he will bet strong often enough with Qx or some other pair to bluff me out of pot considering his aggression.

      1) I prefer bet flop and then check back turn if get called and likely call river bet
      This way you protect your hand and get value form the draws
      2) easy calldown. he has in his range enough bluffs,a although overbet looks quite scary, you´re hand is just too strong to fold
