2 hands to discuss. VPIP/PFR numbers after important players. No special reads on any of the involved players. Fold, shove, stop-n-go ?? I'm under no bankroll pressure so I tend to make decisions more around finishing higher than worrying about finishing ITM.

Shove both.

First hand I expect a medium pair or unpaired high cards; AA/KK just don't raise that much that often.

Second hand is just juicy, stick it in. OK that sounded really bad, but you get the idea...

you want to fold QQ 6handed? Shove 100% of the time. If you're up against AA/KK it's a cooler.

second hand, AK 6handed and ~10BB stack. Shove this every time.

I would of shoved both as well.

You got your money in good in the first hand, just a bad suckout, and you were about even in the second hand. With your stack size in that hand a shove's by far the best play. If MARKUS3474 had a smaller stack he probably would have mucked 4 4, and you would have picked up a nice pot. You were almost even money to have picked up a really nice pot there. Keep it up !

Seems to be unanimous I'd have shoved both hands as well. Actually I probably would have simply called the QQ and once the flop was safe then applied all in pressure but the flop was safe for JJ too so the result would have been the same.

They're both automatic shoves.

Don't call with the QQ... if you check and let the other player represent the A or K then you've lost the pot. The blinds are too big at this point, it needs to all go in preflop.
