These 3 hands account for a a huge slide in my BR this past couple days.

Should I have folded the overpairs?

In the AA hand, the other fellow had played 2 hands and doubled up when he flopped a set.

The KK hand the guy was 11/3/5 over a small sample size.

Those are all coolers I think. The first however is not a good call, what is he going to push with there?

Wouldn't another overpair such as JJ-KK make this move possibly?

3rd was definitely a cooler. The first is an easy fold...he bets 50$ into a <5$ pot so he definitely isn't doing that with anything less than 2 pair. He's just hoping you have a hand and think he is bluffing.

I don't like the way you played the 2nd either. I would have not flat called the turn but come over the top and then probably folded when he shoved. Ofc it is possible he would have made the same move with JJ/QQ.

I think I can fold the AA hand pretty easily.

The KK is a bit read dependent.

The 55 hand is obv a cooler.

Yeah the first one is the only real problem here. I don't think it's an standard fold, but considering we're deep and relatively readless, I usually assume he's got two pair or better here. I think assuming he won't do this with JT/TT-KK is probably the best thing to do.

If we're $25 deep I probably instacall.

The rest are coolers - the KK vs 99s is a little oddly played but still a cooler.

The AA hand you have to throw away. Stacks are too deep there to stack off against an unknown with a single pair. The last hand is a cooler plain and simple. The KK hand is the most interesting. I would have likely gone broke there BUT the new Harrington cash game books would advise you to check the turn and try to get to a showdown cheaply or throw your kings away. He'd likely bet (although likely less than your pot-sized bet) on the turn if checked to and you'd almost have to call his bet on the turn, but you could have check-folded the river that way.
