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)
BB (t950)
UTG (t745)
UTG+1 (t800)
UTG+2 (t635)
MP1 (t900)
Hero (t775)

Preflop: Hero is MP2 with J[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], J[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img].
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.

Flop: (t1630) 4[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 4[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img], 8[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players, 1 all-in)</font>

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.

Hand #4

Party Poker No-Limit Hold'em Tourney, Big Blind is t30 (7 handed) converter

UTG (t1795)
MP1 (t1015)
MP2 (t865)

SB (t1505)
Hero (t685)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 5[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img].
<font color="#666666">5 folds</font>, SB completes, Hero checks.

Flop: (t60) 3[img]/images/graemlins/club.gif[/img], 2[img]/images/graemlins/spade.gif[/img], 7[img]/images/graemlins/heart.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, <font color="#CC3333">Hero bets t30</font>, <font color="#CC3333">SB raises to t60</font>, Hero calls t30.

Turn: (t180) 7[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
SB checks, Hero checks.

River: (t180) 6[img]/images/graemlins/diamond.gif[/img] <font color="#0000FF">(2 players)</font>
<font color="#CC3333">SB bets t30</font>, Hero calls t30.

Final Pot: t240

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.

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

1) Minraise smells fishy. Beware of AA/KK. That said, depening on Villain, shoving isn't bad.

2) I find a way to call on the end. Meh, I think Villain has a T.

3) Good fold.

4) Yeah, you don't just call trips on the end there. I might have bet the turn, though I think disquising your trips might be a good idea. But if you play your line, which isn't complete terrible, I definitely raise river.

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

(1) Push it.
(2) ??? Bet the turn? You have a large pair?
(3) I prefer not raising preflop, because you don't get chased off the hand by larger pairs, which gives you the chance to flop a set and bust them. On an undercard flop you shouldn't go broke vs a larger pair. As it is here, you have to fold.
(4) Bet the turn. SB either has some kind of draw, in which case you need to charge him, or he's disguising a larger 7. If he checkraises a large amount, you need to lay this down.

#1 Fine.

#2 Minibet the flop. Villain will fold 90% of the time here. Having checked the flop, why would you check the turn?? You should bet the turn with any two here, not to mention after hitting your king. And then you fold the river?? What hand did you put the villain on here?

#3 Good.

#4 Villains minicheckraise is pretty confusing, so I think my fishy reaction would be to just call the flop like you did. But when you think about it, calling is not that good. Just about all the cards in the deck are not good for you. Raise to 200 on the flop and fold if he reraises? Then again, with only 685 chips, raising to ~200 here isn't that cool either... Ok I don't know [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] Maybe just trying to get a cheap showdown and letting go if SB bets anything much more than a minibet, just like you did, is okay. Except that you hit trips.. You need to bet for value after hitting your seven!
