      Hi Xzorius,

      Hand 1: Raise to $0.50 (4x BB + 1 for UTG limper.) Other than that, nice hand...the all-in call is correct after the re-raise.

      Hand 2: Raise to $0.90 preflop (3x the raise of $0.30.)

      Hand 3: Fold preflop...only play KQ from late position and the blinds.

      IMHO,
      Kknight

      As Kknight says, hand 1 and 2 are ok except for the raise amounts and hand 3 had to be folded.

      About how to react on re-raises, this is also in the SSS.
      It depends on your original raise, your stack left and the hand you are holding. Just take a look at it. It may look a bit complicated but it comes down to folding weaker hands if you have a relatively big stack left (to save your money), and going all-in on stronger hands and little stacks.

      Hi Xzorius!

      First of all: Please stick to the posting guidelines.

      Secondly: I think KKnight and MisterB73 are correct with their analysis. If you don't know how to react to reraises I recommend this article to you: "Short stack strategy: preflop game".

      Good luck at the tables!
