      First hand: i would have made a continuation bet on flop, you have position so use it since the other players show weakness. The river call is correct imo.

      Second hand: I would have bet the turn as well about 1/2 pot (~1,5$)

      Hi timukasr!

      Hand 1) I would make a continuation bet because your opponents show weakness and they have not hit the flop very often. As played the river call is fine imo because often enough you AQ is the best hand here.

      Hand 2) That's not a good spot for a continuation bet because you are out of position against two players who might have hit this flop or call with a draw. The same counts for the turn: check/fold is the better play because you got called on the flop and although the Q improves your hand you cannot be sure to have the best hand.

      Good luck at the tables!
