Reads on UTG would be good, but if they limp fairly often, I'd push both.

i'd fold the first one pretty quick.

second is very read-dependent. has villain been limping a lot? would he limp KJ? would he call your push with it? (you'd prefer he didn't). my inclination would be to see the free flop, check an A-high flop with the intention of getting a-i unless both players put money in, in which case you should fold. check-fold if you miss. push if you flop a 6.

Hand 1 is tough. After thinking for awhile I fold. With 6 player's left I can fold and pick up an ace and hopefully get in first. If the blinds are going up soon I'd probably just push here.

Hand 2 I'd like some reads but it's probably ok.
EDIT: I completely forgot about checking. I'd probably push here w/ 1 limper and check with 2. So here I check.
