      First of all you need to convert the hands properly as they are very to read and understand.

      Hand 1: Ideally you should have gone all-in pre-flop as you raise was very close to 50% or more of your stack and with four limpers already its a definate push. As played you should have check/folded as there was more than one opponent and not do a cbet.

      Hand 2: Its hard to say whether the all-in was correct giving that you had a gutshot and top pair althogh its with a weak kicker as we dont the the stack details or the pot size.

      Hand 3: Fold post flop as its a very drawy board and with you holding just a low pair the large bet should be a warning to get out.

      Regards,

      Steve
