Its very rare to see posts like this. Its amazing that you grabbed these hands from 1 tourney, same table. :) This way can be really an educational one.

hand1: You are table-leader, and 2nd biggest stack re-pushed your action. There's no way not to just call this. UTG 3bb open is something you have to handle seriously. Going to a bet here from mid position against bigger stack really determines the range. Even its just a 3.3$ game, there's no need to overrush or being overthight here.

hand2: Here JJ has power to re-raise it, its great that you noticed. However the sizing is not exactly what I would do. A healthy 6bb raise would do the job pre. Both flop and turn actions are incredibly week, and suggest that you have a pocket.

hand3: We flopped quads and already recieved a check. I think it would be forced if a pre-domination we still wanna dominate here post-flop. Its a check for me.

hand4: chaprrritaaa possible has only 3 hands by the actions which beats us:66,77,88. Which hands call our value-bet here? I think in best case A4 or A3.

hand5: Cant check back here, I could bet 4000-5400 chips.

These were my views, and thank you for posting this exciting road, looking forward the hands.:cool:

My view on hand analysing is that someone put hand(s) in the thread, and others telling their opinion how they could play or see. And you know, a different perspective is always great to be considered, even it turns out not to build our game. Then we can let it go. Or keep it, if it builds. :)

Hand 1 JJ
Preflop
Opening to 3BB is fine with deep stacks like this. Facing the 3-bet I dont think, we have any other good option than to call. Folding is to tight, but if we 4-bet with stacks this deep after opening UTG, we are usually only getting it in against QQ+ and AK, which is of course not a great situation for us. If MP comes along, he will be all-in, and for that reason CO will have less incentive to bluff us. So postflop will usually be rather straigth forward, and if we end up folding, we still get to see, what CO had.

Hand 2 JJ
Preflop
Squeezing is fine but your sizing is way to small. With this sizing you are just massaging the pot larger and reopening the betting for QQ+, so that these hands can 4-bet you. With a field caller go to 4X the original raise.

Flop
Against two opponents I lean towards checking back a pocket pair on A high board and mostly look to just give up to any significant aggression. You butchered the hand with your sizing preflop, and now you should just cut your losses and move on. A small bet can be ok as well, but then you need to check back the turn.

Turn
Mandatory check after betting the flop. As (mis)played easy fold to his raise.

Hand 3 JJ
Preflop
Standard open

Flop
You could bet small to get called by 6X, pocket pairs, flushdraws and sticky A high. But when you flop quads, especially on a board, where the last card is a low one like a 6, you have the board so incredibly crushed, that it makes a lot of sense to check back to allow your opponent a chance to either catch up or bluff the turn.

Hand 4 A5o
Preflop
Standard call. You could 3-bet, but stacks sizes are awkward for it.

Flop
Standard call.

Turn
I would also put out a small bet when checked to. Its mainly for protection but also a bit of value.

River
I think, going for 1 more street of value is a bit thin, so personally I check back and take a showdown. I expect to have the best hand most of the time, but also that most of his range is some kind of busted draw, that would not call another bet.

Hand 5 KK
Preflop
3-bet sizing is much better now but still a bit small for a micro stakes game.

Flop
Given how short you are, I prefer to check back the A high flop. If he bet the turn, I am calling, and if he check again, I will bet small for value and protection.

Hand 6 AKs
Preflop
Easy jam for 18 bigs against two limpers.

1 fold, 1numismat (UTG+1) raises to 2,400, 5 players fold, eddie1arm98 (BB) calls 1,600

Flop: (6,160) J♠ 6♠ J♦ (2 players)
eddie1arm98 (BB) checks, 1numismat (UTG+1) - ?

hand3: We flopped quads and already recieved a check. I think it would be forced if a pre-domination we still wanna dominate here post-flop. Its a check for me.
Hand 3 JJ
Preflop
Standard open
Flop
You could bet small to get called by 6X, pocket pairs, flushdraws and sticky A high. But when you flop quads, especially on a board, where the last card is a low one like a 6, you have the board so incredibly crushed, that it makes a lot of sense to check back to allow your opponent a chance to either catch up or bluff the turn.
We flopped the world. I'm checking 1 time to let him bluff or let him hit something on the turn.

River: (16,484) 9♣ (2 players)
chaparritaaa (SB) checks, 1numismat (BB) - ?

hand4: chaprrritaaa possible has only 3 hands by the actions which beats us:66,77,88. Which hands call our value-bet here? I think in best case A4 or A3.
Hand 4 A5o
Preflop
Standard call. You could 3-bet, but stacks sizes are awkward for it.
Flop
Standard call.
Turn
I would also put out a small bet when checked to. Its mainly for protection but also a bit of value.
River
I think, going for 1 more street of value is a bit thin, so personally I check back and take a showdown. I expect to have the best hand most of the time, but also that most of his range is some kind of busted draw, that would not call another bet.
I will take my showdown

hand5: Cant check back here, I could bet 4000-5400 chips.
Hand 5 KK
Preflop
3-bet sizing is much better now but still a bit small for a micro stakes game.
Flop
Given how short you are, I prefer to check back the A high flop. If he bet the turn, I am calling, and if he check again, I will bet small for value and protection.
check, take this to showdown as cheap as possible

Easy jam for 18 bigs against two limpers.
Jam, take the dead money, so hard to play out of position w AK and he might call you w AQ AJ or flip it with pairs time to gamble
