Hand 1. I like the flop check but think you need to raise the turn a lot more.

Hand 2. Looks good

Hand 3. Looks good

Hand 4. I don't like the minraise UTG. This is push or fold territory, and for me it's a fold in the 16's, but it's close, as AQ's a push.

1.As far as the first hand goes. With two early limpers from EP I would just limp in with nines, as apposed to raising.

2. Second hand is kind of a tough one imo, you are getting laid about 2.2-1 and have a large chips stack. So I suppose you could -sigh- call the all-in and just hope you are not dominated. But I would fold this pre-flop for shizzle.

3. A J is a tricky hand, believe me its not as good as it looks. With 4 folds I might throw a raise in there if I felt the table was passive but other than that I generally limp or fold. After that though the flop action seems ok to me. Villian made a very odd bet that commited most of his stack, I would be suspious of that. Anyway the decision to go all-in has alot to do with feel. You have top pair with a decent kicker and a draw to the second nut flush. I would assume that leaves you with about 14 outs (give or take a few) if you don't have the best hand right now. This is a hard question to answer and I don't know if I am even qualified to give the correct answer. But imo pushing or folding were both resectable options based on your read of villian. Though in -most- cases I just dump AJ PF.

4. Again with the AJ you have to be careful. Often times your opponent will have a better kicker or raggity two pair in this situation. After your pf raise and flop bet, villian is showing a TON of strengh by going all-in. He wants a call, like I said in most cases dump AJ pf and if not procede with caution. You have to fold this on the flop.

Instead of checking on that flop in the first hand, I'd make a relatively weak looking bet, something in the ballpark of 180-200. With no particularly interesting draws around, I think if you're going to get paid at any point in this hand they'll be paying you from the beginning, so gently pump the pot and don't stop firing. This is assuming you're lacking reads, of course.

The remaining hands all seem fine, I agree with the masses that you should raise more (375 is my usual raise at this point) in the last hand PF.
