Hand 1: Get the money in. He can be doing this with two pair and semi-bluffs and we have re-draws if we're behind. If it's set over set then gg.
Hand 2: Surely we're just shovelling money in? We don't want to see the board pair and we don't have the nut flush draw. I would def raise the flop.
Hand 3: The only hand we are beaten by that makes sense is T8. I couldn't fold.
Hand 1: True, i thought of this later but wasn't my initial hunch as I read him with even better. He was pretty solid of a player (took my stack all in his AA vs my KK pre) and at showdowns I observed he was often showing massive hands, although he did one time stone cold call down an aggressive lady with his paired Aces (4 kicker) on a big board. See below for spoiler.
Hand 2: As I suspected! I didn't go all in but I did bet just under $80ish which folded everyone to me and I took the pot. I was trying to find the smallest amount I could thin the drawing field.
Hand 3: He had the other hand that could beat me, I tanked and thought no way he has 45, then I realized the board was just a blind to see, see below for spoilers.

Hand 2.... I lead right out on this flop. We don't want it checking through. However, as played, C/R to $50 or $60, jam turn. But with this line, we probaby fold some out, and it's criminal to just call on this action flop. I like leading flop better, pot size. Turn we bet based on texture/opponents left in hand....
Hand 3. Are you betting small to induce a raise on the river? I would probably bet a little bigger... I sigh call river, I think there are enough hands in his range that we beat. It smells a little like a slow played straight though. However, there are 2p hands here V would raise.
I might even be inclined to think he has Q-8, and he underestimated your hand.... but that's a reach.... I think he just calls. It's either 2p, or you are beat.
Do we have any reads on V in hand 3? Like is he a nit nut-peddler?
Still, unless I have a read on V (like dude never raises, unless nutted), I sigh call.
Hand 1: Yeah I realized i got myself into a bit of monsters under the bed thinking as the guy took my remaining stack from first BI of night with his AA vs my KK pre. Guy next to me tells
me "if you had a set and folded there you were still like 35%-40% IF he had what you put him on. Just a scared play on my part.
Hand 2: As played when action came back to me I bet around 1.5x pot and took it.
Hand 3: He was a bit hard to pin down, he was a decent player, not really nitty , probably a bit aggressive but seemed to know where he was in most hands. I sigh called, he shows 45 for the low straight.
Hand 1: I went over this hand and realized I played scared in this spot (guy stacked me earlier AA vs my KK pre) and the guy was building a city skyline of chips just wrecking people with huge hands mostly. Guy next to me says I was dumb if I folded any set there with like 35-45% chance to win IF I put him on a st8, I put the V on JQ which wasn't unreasonable I don't think given the cheap look he got on flop. But I realize now it could have been 2p or over pair. I folded and regret that fold.
Hand 2: As played I figured someone at this table would raise so I took that chance as first to act, and I was right. When the raise came back to me I did indeed bet over pot to thin the field and everyone folded to me.
Hand 3: I put the guy on 45 after realizing the flop was just a blind to see, i make the crying call and of course he has 45o for the low straight.
