      I have to say I like all 3 folds (maybe on Hand 3.) you can Call), since a 3-bet from other real SSS´ler means only a coinflip or maybe a Split (against another AK hand), but you are nearly never a favourit.
      And since you only have an equity of 46% against a pocket pair, you fold when you did invest any money before. Since you also have to pay rake of 5% of the pot when you win, you need an equity of 55% to play break even in the long run.

      Against a good SSS Player you only have 40% equity so you need 1.5:1 or better to call. Meaning to call a Push, their must be $25 in the pot minimum after you called to be +EV.
