      1) freeplay from BB

      OnGame's Room No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (9 handed) by Hand Converter CG

      MP3 ($24.20)
      CO ($24.50)
      Button ($26.05)
      SB ($24.75)
      Hero ($4.85)
      UTG ($23.60)
      UTG+1 ($4.75)
      MP1 ($97.05)
      MP2 ($23.00)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J:diamond: , 2:club: .
      UTG calls $0.25, 7 folds, Hero checks.

      Flop: ($0.65) 5:club: , 2:heart: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.5, UTG calls $0.50.

      Turn: ($1.65) 2:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, UTG checks.

      River: ($1.65) 4:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.5, UTG folds.

      Final Pot: $3.15

      Here I decided to slowplay on the turn, which I think was a mistake. Guess I had to proceed with betting 2/3 of a pot or make a value bet of 1/3 pot.
      On the river bet is now definately to high, I think a thin value bet is the best decision after a mistake on the turn.

      2) push or fold on flop (sorry for the format, somehow converter did not want to convert this hand)

      Texas Hold'em $0.25-$0.50 NL (real money), hand #P4-53181515-618

      Hero is BB [ Jh, Js ] ($4.60 in chips)

      1 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.25, 1 folds, MP1 calls $0.25, 1 folds, MP3 calls $0.25, 3 folds, Hero rises $1.75, UTG+2 calls $1.50, MP1 calls $1.50, 1 folds.

      FLOP $5.65 [board cards 8s, Qd, 10h ] (3 players)

      Here I have $2.85 left, which is almost twice less than pot, so according to the strategy i have to go all-in regardless. I think there is big chance that one of opp. has a Q, but I still have 4 gutshot outs and 2 outs for trips. So i guess its an easy all-in?

      Hand 1.)
      Bet low on the Turn here, Overcards might call or you´re getting action from a higher pocket pair. Everything else will fold anyway. Same goes for the River. The board isn´t good to slowplay here, since your opponent nearly never has a reason to bet here on the turn.

      Hand 2.)
      You explained it yourself. :)
