      In the first hand you are small favorite to win with your Queens against 2 opponents with their hands with about 56% equty - therefore in the long run it should bring you small profit I guess and they will be loosers, but it's an example of how equity of overpair decreases in multiway pot.

      The other 2 hands are standard suckouts and these will happen very often - it really pist you off when it happen but that's poker. It's ok if you stick to bankroll management and learn not to let those affect your play in the next hands. I had a bunch of those when I was trying to establish myself on NL25 and now I'm busted back to NL10 and that was really frustrating because I know it's just variance but it would take you a lot of time to win them back. A small consolation is that in hand 2 and 3 at least your opponents had legitimate hands that you might go allin with yourself. It's much worse when the donkey crack your big pair with 72s or something.

      2nd hand played terribly, raise to a minimum of 0.14 preflop, you dont want a multiway pot. maybe thats how you loose so often with big pairs?

      you must be joking.

      It's not small profit. You have 50+% to triple up, not double up. So that's huge profit.

      This.

      Dont try to slowplay big hands preflop at this nano stakes, will just get huge multiway pots.

      Otherwise I see no problem in the hands they are fine play and u got it in right which is all u can do...
