      What do I do wrong in each of these hands? I find AA very hard to play postflop.

      In hand 1 I guess I should have fold on the turn?
      In hand 2 I guess I also would have to fold on the turn?
      In ahnd 3 I don´t know.

      Hi,

      1) I would b/f flop without really great equity and if player limp/calls, then he won´t really make there moves postflop that you should b/c 4-way pot with overpair
      2) I think c/c him down would be better option that c/rai on the turn and also I would c/r flop or bet out myself
      3) I would bet flop and play for stacks. Without any reads hard him to put on better hand on the flop, once you check back then it is easy calldown

      best regards,
