Re: 5-2 to play, 2 variants

First one I'm hitting on the ace. Really feels like you need to hit somewhere for tempo and even I'm not crazy enough to hit on the 3 here. The second one might be different enough that 7/2 is correct. He doesn't have the inside blot and isn't threatening to improve his front and attack as quickly.
