      Hand 1)
      You should raise the flop to push out MP1. If you are 3-betted you stand in a harder posistion, but vs. an unknown i would drop the hand, since he will have an ace a set or two pair almost all the time (no draws except for gutshots possible). As played you don't have much information on what MP1 and i won't try to judge if a calldown or a fold is the better option.

      Hand 2)
      WP'ed i would say. The question is if you can raise the river with the 3rd best hand, but i think a call is the better option.

      Hand 3)
      Hmm.. cap the flop + bet the turn and calldown to a raise i think. With his preflop action we should put him on ~JJ+, AQs+, AKo, and i doubt he would play overcards that aggresively so we are down to four possible holdings: JJ, (QQ), KK or AA with the most possible holdings being KK/AA. It would be too weak to lay it down on this board though.

      1) Never call in this situation. If u wanna play this hand Raise or Fold. In your case i would have folded after the raise from MP1.

      2) Nice played

      3) This one is difficult. I would calldown to his 3-bet on the flop. So check/call the turn instead of betting

      3) I really dont think he is holding overcards here. Would he 3-bet A-high vs u? I dont think so. That river raise also tells me that he sure must has something.

      1) I thought he reraised to get the 3th person out to protect his 8 or 4 or a pair that wasnt the ace. Or is this bad thinking in general?

      He probably did raise to get one or even both players out, but you should still never call in this situation. I lean toward a raise but as Wilm said even a fold might be better.
