    I agree with you that the first one is a good fold (you've only got AK, not a made hand). It's got possibilities of turning into a huge hand, but it's not a made hand and it's too early to be risking it.

    The 2nd one's tougher. On the flop, there are both flush and straight draws out there. With top set, I'd have been making a good sized raise on the flop. By just calling, you're losing value and letting the opps draw at the straight and flush cheap... not something you want to do. If you raise the flop, the 5 should fold, which means that the str8 won't get made on the turn (although the Ad is probably staying for any bet).
    The way you played it, when there is a shove to a 4-straight on the board... if you can't beat the straight, you've got to muck... although if you raised on the flop, you're probably not in that situation.
