How should I have played this hand? Should I have put him on AK?
You would really need an idea on how he plays, for example what sort range is he 3 betting' This board hits an ABC players 3 betting range pretty hard, so I agree with playing it slower. Afterall the only hand that didnt hit that board are Tens or Jacks, IF they are in his range.I agree with checking the flopI would bet/fold river vs most players, vs an ABC player or nitty type then you could make a case for check fold.

How would u play this? floping nut str8 flush
I prefer to flat because you can't be sure if he has the Ac - He might have the Kc or Qc and would fold that to a raise. If I were to raise I would shove, not click it back because shoving gives you a weaker range IMO.

Hot $55 busted 72nd because I shoved with J high - Donked it off? :s
With 80 players left in a turbo + 10bbs I think that range is far too tight. I think you have to take any spot you can get because 10bbs will turn into 6bbs in about 2 minutes when blinds go up. If ICM becomes a factor then I think leaving off the bottom of your range is a good idea if the other players are likely to bust before you. I'm interested to hear other players thoughts on this.

Big $33 spot on the turn
I would play the flop the same way and just call. It's not really the best draw in the world and it isn't something I'd be happy to stack off with. If the board texture were different then I would be more inclined to raise, but there is a fair chance that a random players' range has hit that flop. On turn I prefer to fold, as you said yourself you have basically no fold equity and have probably only 25% equity vs whatever he has.

What to do? Help please
Oh and as played on the flop I would call. You checked and allowed him to shove all sorts of rubbish so folding is out of the question

What to do? Help please
Just try to estimate his range and either shove or fold. You can get some info on what sort of player he is by watching what he's doing or you can check sharkscope or OPR. If you think he has a really tight range, then you should not call because you only have a slim chance to flop a hand you are confident with (straight or trips'). You should not shove either if you think he is tight. If you think he has a wider range like 77+ ATs+ then it is an easy shove. Some players will jam their mid strength hands but raise with their premiums. Other players will not be playing their stack size and ...

Did i overplay AA?
I don't think you should raise the flop, the board is Q45 rainbow which is very dry and there are very few draws. Just calling will keep the pot smaller and will allow you to get value from hands that you beat. As played when you get shoved on it is best to fold vs most players with 100bbs.

Shove at the Bubble vs. AA (SnG)
To explain further why you should not call the JTs out of position with so few chips - You are going to miss 2/3 of the flops you see, so you will most likely be check folding which is a waste of your chips. Hope it helps gl.

Shove at the Bubble vs. AA (SnG)
Not a single table SNG player but I think the first hand is alright. You are on life support with 4bbs, will be down to 2 bbs in 2 hands. Other 3 stacks are all over 10bbs so you really need to put it in with your pair. Second hand, I think a shove is OK vs aggressive openers because JTs plays well, it's especially juicy if they have shown they can raise/fold. Probably best to just fold though and look to open shove with your 8bb's or hopefully pick up a hand

worst missclick / most expensive uve made?
Only a few days ago I typed an extra 0 and accidentally c-bet about 5 times the pot on the flop, and had to check fold turn. Lost about 35 bbs on that hand. I once accidentally open-shoved 60bbs in a tourney with A9 because I was playing a few turbos and got my tables mixed up. Everyone folded.

AJ on dry Ace high-Board at FT of The Bigger 55$
Also, when he bets the turn just a little less than what you bet, it is a gross feeling.

AJ on dry Ace high-Board at FT of The Bigger 55$
When Bostero flat calls you preflop you can most likely rule out him having any Ace-x hand. He would have 44 or KK. I say this because you have 20bb's so he would 3bet / call AQ+ or 88+ I would think. He might flat KK+ to trap though. As for 44 - Well he probably shouldn't flat 44 only to set mine, but he might not just be set mining, he might think he can also win the pot by betting the flop. Edit: He flatted the flop with 1 player still behind, so he looks strong. When he bets the turn just a little less than what you bet on the flop, it is a gross feeling, which makes me think 44. ...

Good for him if he found an edge. House needs to pay up. No rule stating players can't look for uneven prints and no rule against 180 degree rotating.

2 hands micro 6max mtt
1st hand - Readless I would shove, AJ is ahead of most opening ranges in 6max. It is not an auto-shove though for 19bbs. 2nd hand - Not a fan of the lead, I would be check calling against the villian you described.

Can I raise this river for value, or should I just call?
Just bet the turn if you think he has an Ace, gets more value and makes the river decision easier. On the river as played you don't really know where you are - There are a lot of hands he can have that are not flushes though, so putting in a small raise to 5500 and fold to re-raise seems OK since you think you can get called by worse. Overall I think you should bet the turn, it defines the hand better. Checking behind turn is OK if you think he has 88/66 or some other marginal hand, but even then you should probably bet it because you don't want a 4th diamond to peel off.

how s my line
Bet flop is the way to go against a straight forward villain. If he has an ace or a draw you will get some value. If he has nothing he folds flop and probably folds future streets anyway so might as well bet the flop.

Spot against complete whale in live cash
My mistake, I didn't factor in that you also had a pair and have some extra outs. If you have 50% equity on the flop, and there is some dead money in the pot, then it is probably slightly + EV to take a flip. High variance though. And about the BB still being in the hand, I wouldn't be concerned about that, you are happy if he calls as long as he doesn't turn up a bigger flush draw.

Spot against complete whale in live cash
You are almost certainly up against a bigger pair. I guess you are about 35% to win with your flush draw and your undercard ( someone else might know the exact math). So I guess this is a fold. You might as well fold this pre flop also. Against weak passive players you might be able to play this profitably.

Bubble situation
Fold because you aren't so short that you need to get it in with A7off. You can just shove this pre and take that move away from him, force him to a decision to call or fold.

Well Played Cooler
If you had a read you had a read. Sometimes timing tells and/or bet sizing can tip you off that something is up. Obviously you should normally raise the river, but you know this. Must be very difficult to check that river.

Applying pressure on the bubble
Fold the flop - One pair on that flop is not very strong at all, especially after villian donk bets into 2 players. Your Q high flush draw could also be drawing dead. As for applying pressure on the bubble - Go for it if the players are tight / passive - but it might not be very effective in this situation with your stack and the fact that most players have more chips than you.

5.5r: Super-deep, late, Misplayed AK?
Just shove - No need to try to induce because he is very unlikely to fold anything that he is 3 betting with - If anything your small 4 bet might actually scare off worse aces like AQ. If you just shove then he will call off his entire range.
