      Hand 1) contibet the flop. The boards is scary for you, but also for your opponent. Fold to any further action.

      Hand 2) Nice hand. Fold is correct.

      Hand 3) Check preflop! This hand is not in the starting hands chart for the SSS, isn't it?!

      Hand 4) Check/fold flop


      Just a little advice: Please read our strategy articles carefully! From my point of view some of your "mistakes" are easily avoidable by reading the articles again and again.

      Good luck at the tables!

      In NL25 it might not really be needed but as you move up in limits you have to apply many steals in your game. So i would steal with 55 , and i would push all in directly with the really small stack with A9o since it easily beats his complete range. Sometimes it is profitable to go directly all in from late positions wiht hands like ATo or Axs if your small stack is reduced with many limpers in the hand , provided the first limpers are loose (Like Alaton has taught us ^^ ).
      But anyway i suppose steals are something that has to be applied really slowly to your game.

      About hand 4 , id also go all in against 2 opponents with only one overcard on board which is also not as likely for an opponent to hold as an Ace. If it was 3 opponents i think i might check fold it.

      1) Agree to the contibet.
      2) Depends on your opponent I should maybe raise here to take the initive or take the Blinds
      3) If I raise pre-flop then it should be all-in on the flop:)
      4) Hmm, I think that all-in is good (MP3 had Q7) so very bad play with him:)
