Default A few hands I\'de like you to look at

I decided to play 4 SNG's even though im supposed to be on a break and I managed to pull out a 195% ROI. Anyway im not going to play until break is over, and this is a nice boost to my bankroll for when I come back. I have a few hands from there and a few other hands from a friend that im not sure how to play. If any of you amazing SNG players (im looking at you curtains and unarmed) or anybody else could give me some advice on these hands it would be great. All of these are at the 30+3 level.

Hand #1

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t50 (7 handed) converter

Button (t755)
SB (t2495)
BB (t315)
UTG (t710)
MP1 (t1735)
MP2 (t1230)
Hero (t760)

Preflop: Hero is CO with A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">MP1 raises to t100</font>, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t760 (All-In)</font>, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, MP1 calls t660.

Flop: (t1595) 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 6[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], Q[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Turn: (t1595) 5[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

River: (t1595) 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: t1595

I have a feeling this is either an easy fold or an easy push. As you can see I chose easy push, but was I right?

Hand #2

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t50 (7 handed) converter

UTG (t827)
MP1 (t1120)
MP2 (t841)
CO (t2140)
Button (t897)
SB (t1505)
Hero (t670)

Preflop: Hero is BB with K[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 9[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">5 folds</font>, SB completes, Hero checks.

Flop: (t100) A[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, Hero checks.

Turn: (t100) K[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, Hero checks.

River: (t100) T[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t150</font>, Hero folds.

Final Pot: t250

This hand really bothered me, should I have led out for 50 on the turn for more information? After thinking for awile I realize it was too likely for him too have random 2 pair on the river, should I have looked him up?

Hand #3

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t15 (10 handed) converter

MP3 (t390)
CO (t1205)
Button (t770)
SB (t830)

MP1 (t900)

UTG calls t15, <font color="#666666">3 folds</font>, <font color="#CC3333">Hero raises to t65</font>, <font color="#666666">2 folds</font>, Button calls t65, <font color="#666666">1 fold</font>, BB calls t50, <font color="#CC3333">UTG raises to t745 (All-In)</font>, Hero folds, Button calls t680, BB folds.

Turn: (t1630) T[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

River: (t1630) 9[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

Final Pot: t1630

I am pretty sure folding this to the all in raise was correct, but should I have raised in the first place? I figured this lets me get off cheaply if he is slowplaying a big hand because I only lose 65 instead of all my chips when the flop comes T42 this also doesnt give the blinds a free look. Actually as I type this out im pretty sure I played this correctly, but since Ive already gone this far I mise well post it.

<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t30</font>, Hero calls t30.

I'm sure I totally butchered this hand, my feeble poker mind doesnt grasp playing low cards, somebody help me find the correct line here.

Anyway thats all for now, thanks in advance.
