Bet or Check
I probably check/call because firstly if you bet and get raised you are probably beat and might have to fold but I don't want to fold with all that equity. Secondly checking allows him to represent the ace if you are ahead.

Flips make me sick.........
There are very few situations where I would pass up a flip. One example if it is late in a tourney AND you have a huge stack and are risking most or all of it AND you have a huge skill edge. Usually though there is way too much money in the pot that if you pass up the flip then you are giving up too much of your equity and that is a terrible thing to do in cash or tournaments. But yes, you can pass on flips or marginal spots when deep in tournies if you have a big stack and are picking up chips easily and losing would cripple you.

Two tough hands early stages
First one I click call, that's a weak bet and I think there's enough hands he could be betting for the sake of betting in a $5. Second hand, if you think you are beat then just fold pre, you don't have enough chips to be set mining with QQ. Get it in pre because AK is usually in their range enough and is more likely than KK or AA. If you have a soul read that you are beat then you can fold pre although I wouldn't do it in a 5 tourney with those stacks.

Need a blueprint for learning
Coaching will definitely help with learning solid poker. Give your hand history to a coach on here and they will straighten you out. I had sessions with Andresoprano and Assassinato, both cool guys and great poker minds that taught me a lot. Not sure if they are still doing coaching. Gags and tyson are 2 coaches that are active on here I'd recommend them also because they have a lot of knowledge. But yeah whichever coach you choose I'm sure it will be a huge benefit to your game.

Need a blueprint for learning
Drew peacocks post was pretty much spot on. Learn to play solid poker, then once you have the foundations down learn to get creative and play the player. And don't be lazy in your play.

Awful river, but we still beat some bluffs?
I thought about this hand some more. I think check fold is probably the worst option vs a decent reg who has position on you. Check fold makes you very exploitable in a spot where he will have at least as many bluffs as he has value hands. Bet fold is ok because it will be so hard for him to shove over the top as a bluff, and you might even get value from Ace high.Check call is ok because you let him bluff.

Awful river, but we still beat some bluffs?
I think the average multi-tabling reg checks back with Ace high because of showdown value.But I like betting with ace high though, since he can fold out hands that he chops with as well as hands like TT+ that beat him.Tough spot because its obvious you don't have a J it looks like you're just barrelling, then you check the river which looks weak and gives him a chance to bluff and you said he is capable of doing that. If he is the player you say he is then a lot of his range can be bluffs here, and a bunch of J combos can be in his value range. An average reg might have less bluff hands and ...

Weird Spot with marginal holding
Definitely fold pre, you are not deep enough to speculate. Fold flop because you have minimal equity, best you can hope is that he shoved AK on the flop.

how many times is this shove good ... almost folded here
I love these hands. First hand I like raising the min bet as you did and planning to stack off with top pair and under 20 bbs. Second hand I'm not sure, the guy 4x'd which is weird, unless I'd seen him opening frequently to 4x I might even fold the 88 even though he only has 18bb's,.

Slow Played QQ And Ended Up Facing River Overshove!
Easy fold as played, I don't think he's taking this line vs a random player without a big hand.

Un-real run on FTP
I feel I can relate to your post because I have been running bad all 2014, I was losing a lot of key pots and feel I have just been crushed by the deck. I did stop playing for a while and recently had a look at my game and found some problems and have adjusted, so I'm confident it will pick back up, hopefully sooner rather than later. My mindset is the best ever now, and bad beats don't tilt me like they used to. Run bad is not new to me because I also ran terrible for the first half of 2013 but did pick up in the last half of the year. I think you identified one of your leaks and that is ...

PokerStars Froze $600 from me (because I didn't submit verification documents)
They will when you try to cash out a large amount. They want these docs for security reasons and to protect the players from scam accounts. Stars are trustworthy I don't think you need to be concerned with sending in the docs.

flopped set turn line?
I think you can bet closer to half pot at least on flop because you are expected to cbet and might not get much credit so he might call with smaller pairs or an ace. Turn depends on the player, against passive player def bet, aggro player you can check to induce. River - I like a big river bet as played since the turn went check Check. Against a passive player I like bet bet bet though for sure.

Just want to check this spot
Thanks for the advice guys. It helps just to check if other players are taking this spot. I ended up calling and was in a flip with 2 smaller pairs, didnt work out this time but if it did I would have had 100bbs which would give me a more playable stack.

Playing AK and QQ in the early levels on aggressive table.
If you are not happy getting stacks in pre, then you can just flat. I dont mind flatting these sorts of hands pre when super deep, it disguises your hand strength and keeps in your opponents worse hands.

Snap call... Right?!
Tyson pretty much said it, call and take the small edge because with only 18bbs its very likely a better spot wont come and you will just blind off.
