      Hand 1:
      Yes, fold.

      Hand 2:
      I personally raise on the turn there. You're first to act on the river at which point you have to reveal your hand anyway more or less.
      I guess the way you played it, MP3 pays you an extra 14c by calling behind on the turn which you most likely wouldn't have gotten if you raised. Then again you might have gotten more money out of BU.

      Hand 3:
      Nice hand, well played.

      Hand 1:

      Raise just to $0,18. And fold to 4-bet. AQ is too marginal to go all-in prelop for 100BB. You are against AK most of the times (or then against QQ+). Sometimes you may be flipping. Only in rare ocassions you may be ahead.

      Hand 2:

      bet, bet, bet - this line gives you maximum value. It is a multiway pot and you want to get maximum value from draws or Kx.

      Hand 3:

      I bet 3/4-pot on the flop and on the turn and I shove the river.
