Are these out of line? I don't play like this without reads so I know what to expect of the villains.

I would have played every single one of these hands differently at one point or another, and some of them much differently. I would have riased preflop in hands 2+3, and moved allin in hand 3.

Cont bet hand 1, or check and fold to that bet.

Hand 2, raise preflop. Since you didn't, I think your line is okay. Maybe reraise the flop and find some stuff out.

Hand 3, please don't do that. Push right away.

Hand 1: Pre-flop, either check or make a manly raise. No womanly raises allowed. Raise to around 105. On the flop, Id make a continuation bet for 1/2 the pot, around 80. Id have to fold most likley if UTG+2 came over the top.

Hand 2: Im raising this pre-flop. Such a strong hand heads-up, if the BB is a smart player it might even induce a re-steal with a weaker holding. Im too lazy to critique the rest.

Hand 3: Id have pushed this, but given the way it turned out, Id fold without a read.
