local tournament/not sure what to do
You played it perfectly. Unlucky. Flips happen, not much else you can do when 27bbs effective.

FT Pockets 7's and Know Villain has AK
I don't think I'd ever be confident enough in a bet sizing tell to flat and shove flops when I'm at 15bbs at a final table. Seems like a standard get it in preflop type of spot. If you're super confident, you can just do the math and figure out which line is more profitable, but I wouldn't trust the underlying assumption behind that math, so wouldn't bother calculating it.

Pocket 5s UTG when last 25 players - feedback
I haven't read any of the above. This seems like a clear shove preflop. We're 7 handed and except for hero and button, it's 10bbs effective. Button is aggro and going to 3b us light if we open. We'll be ahead of his range, but not crushing it. We're priced to call everyone else at the table. The only real option is to shove since we're fine with people folding some of the overcard combos they might reshove.

Any way to get away from QQ here or is there a different line I could have taken?
fwiw, you need to find a way to post the HH correctly if you want feedback. I simply won't take the time to watch a youtube video replay of a hand

Weird spot in BB limp
Top pair with 10bbs is a spot where I wouldn't be folding very often. Get it in and hope for the best. Not really much else you can do

TT in UTG+1 spot VS UTG 10BBshove
Must call. I even call with 88 here. The stacks at the rest of table allow you to flat 88+, AJs+, AQo+ and fold to the >20bb shoves and call everyone else. Your range should be so tight that only JJ+, AK should 4b shove.

Pretty standard hand- is my sizing Ok?
Greave - with respect to preflop sizing, it's all about effective stack sizes. If you were shallower, your sizing would be good. When deeper stacked, the implied odds for flatting more marginal hands increase. As a result, people should be calling with the same range even with when facing larger 3bs. And since you're at the very top of your range, you want to start building a pot as soon as possible.

BvB hand late in Double Rush $2r
I really dislike flatting here. Even bvb, I don't like flatting suited 3/4 gappers. I disagree with your premise that this is a hand that flops decently. I'd rather 3b preflop to take initiative with hands like that, unless I think villain has a very wide 4b range. The rest of your logic is fine. As ginger said, be careful with getting too tricky postflop when you have barely any equity. The way the hand played out, everything else looks reasonable.

hand strategy: pocket 10's
You can't think in ranges when there hasn't been any action. But if there's no action, it means everyone has folded...so it's irrelevant. With midpairs on 15-30bbs, you should always be opening. The question of how to proceed after opening depends on the action. Once there's action after your open, then you can start to think about the ranges of your opponents. For example, if a solid tag player 3bs you from UTG+1, his range is going to be fairly strong and I wouldn't be excited about getting 25-30bbs in preflop with hands like 88, 99 and maybe even TT. If a super laggy player with wide ...

Your bet sizing is too small on every street. I'd raise to at least 90, probably more like 100-120 preflop vs a limper. On the flop, I'd raise to 225-250 vs his small donk bet. On the turn, I'd raise significantly more--350-400 ish. River seems ok, you could probably raise a bit more

Big $33 Satty - 99 vs +EV spot close to money
I think this is an easy fold in a satellite tbh. Villain is opening on a relatively short stack and we're in great position right now to cash. I'd be folding marginal call/reshove situations and focusing on exploiting mid sized stacks by open shoving from late position once you're closer to ITM (so like 18-20 ppl left). Unless you think villain has a high fold to 3b in this spot, which he shouldn't, I'd happily fold.

FT bubble Sunday $55 - Sick Cold 4b spot w KQs. Should we take it?
Inducing looking 3b from a solid reg with 25bbs leads me to fold in this spot. He's 3b a laggy player that, given the openers stack, is likely to flat and create a mess of awkward postflop spots for the 3bettor. So I don't think the average reg has a wide 3b range here. Depending on how sick the reg is, I'd be fine with a shove if you're confident he has a 3b/f range here and has/is capable of making 'non-traditional' plays from his stack size. But without a dead on read for that, I wouldn't risk it. If his stack were in better shape -- something more in the low 30bbs+, I definitely like ...

Seems fine based on villain stats. It's an aggro villain and HJ vs. CO. I'd play the same. Don't be results oriented.

Middle set, facing very scary action.
Why bother posting the hand' If you're going to have an open mind, post away. If you're going to argue that you knew 99% of the time that he had AA then you're wasting your time and everyone elses.

Middle set, facing very scary action.
So you're assigning a thought process to a random villain on which you have no info' What basis do you have for assuming villain follows a rational thought plan in this spot' Wouldn't a lot of villains say we should bet flop since a flop c/r looks stronger than a cbet' Wouldn't a lot of villains say we should cbet flop even with AA since there are a lot of draws and we want to maximize value from those draws' Seems like you're using your thought process and automatically assuming villain follows the same process. That's often not the case, so unless you can provide villain specific ...

Losing all of my pre-flop all ins
To answer one of your questions...if you were my horse, I'd make you take a break for at least a week. The inability to control your state of mind when taking bad beats is a sign of frustration and overplay. I'd take 1-2 weeks off and spend the time studying. Then come back more relaxed, in a better state of mind, and prepared to crush. Most people I know who do the above come back and are so much more profitable that if offsets (and more) the missed volume.

What will be 2015's 'latest craze' in MTT play?
It's not just about preflop/postflop edge. Limping is also about optimal strategy based on stack sizes. For example, r/f JTs on 20-25bbs effective isn't always the right play. A l/c or l/postflop play can be more profitable than a r/f, especially if opening through multiple reshove stacks. It's obviously a lot more complex than the above example, but the main point is that it's an effective strategy for multiple reasons.

Close but no cigar..!
Raise pre, fold if you get 3b/reshoved on. Don't bet flop as played. c/f instead. c/f turn as played because you don't have enough equity against his range. You should assume you have at most 9 outs there since villain won't show up with an underpair often enough for your Tx to be a live out. Big picture is that you won't have sustained long-term success playing a weak/passive style. I'd recommend watching some videos at a training site if you want to become profitable long-term.

Middle set, facing very scary action.
Villains cbets a set of 2s but not a set of Aces' How can you be confident of this, especially in a rush tournament with minimal reads' With no more villain specific info, you have to get this in. Folding is just terrible. If you have a ton of villain specific reads, than you should have provided those.

Middle set, facing very scary action.
You flopped a set with about a 30bb stack. Time to get the money in. Villains line is not only AA. There are a few combos of AA out there. There's more combos of 22, AT, combo spade draws and some oddly played AK hands. Trying to range someone there to AA specifically seems like a bad idea

is this inadvisable with 14bb ?
Shove pre. Villain in the big blind defends really wide and your hand is terrible for postflop play. Since you're going to get flatted 40-50% of the time, there's a lot of postflop play that comes up with 12bb eff stacks. You're going to get into too many awkward postflop spots as a result.

Fold facing river raise holding queens?
I personally think you played it perfectly. It's a crazy spot for villain to raise as a bluff, so unless you have a read that he's a crazy sicko willing to turn Jx into a bluff, I'd fold.

AQo in BB. 18bb eff vs EP & 2 flat. Good spot 2 "get tricky?"
It's such a standard shove preflop that any other line is just asinine. Whoever told you to 'get tricky' in that spot should be ignored, about this spot and every other spot in which they have given you advice. There's a ton of dead money and you have fold equity. Get it in

Correct fold?
I'm not folding here in the early stages of a $2 turbo. People will do so much stupid stuff here. I'd call turn and call rivers. If he does play a better hand this way, good for him...time to fire up the next one.
