$0.25 NLHE MTT: Some spots I'm not so sure on $0.25-45p

Hosted At https://www.cardschat.com/f51/0-25-nlhe-mtt-some-spots-282581/

Hello everyone.
So, I’ve been playing quite regularly those $0.25 45p SnGs, and there are some spots where I’m still not sure how to act.

So first, this hand:

#1:

Spoiler alert!


PokerStars – Hold’em Tournament – $10/20 Blinds – 8 Players
Hand Converter from Pokerhand.org

Libertguga (MP2): $1,494
vilmar358 (CO): $1,821
leobhl (BTN): $2,715
gramma jacq (SB): $1,494
Thiagoomd (BB): $1,494
peixe1103 (UTG): $1,494
Leovip1000 (UTG+1): $1,494
vvali7878 (MP1): $1,494

Pre-flop: Dealt to Thiagoomd Qh Ks
(1 folds), Leovip1000 calls $20, (3 folds), leobhl raises to $150, gramma jacq calls $140, Thiagoomd calls $130, Leovip1000 calls $130

Flop: ($624) 6h Ac 4c (4 Players)
gramma jacq checks, Thiagoomd checks, Leovip1000 checks, leobhl bets $312, (3 folds), leobhl returns $312
leobhl wins $624

_______________________________

– The question is:

It was the third hand of the tourney, so I had no info about the other players yet.
UTG+1 limps, BTN raises for 7.5BBs and SB calls. I decided to call with the KQo.
Should I fold, 3bet or simply call as I did?

_______________________________

Here, should I flat this? I had 3:1 odds and there’s still the big blind to play. If the BB folds, I’d have a nice shot (~40%) against a very tight range that he might be playing. If BB enters pot, it would be very close (~20-25%) of winning. In the long run, should I save those chips?

Should I C-bet this flop? The guy was quite aggressive because of his stack size, I made him a 3bet and he called.
Jack is definitely on his range.

With that hand, should I just call or 3 or 4bet him to defend the blinds? I called and had to give up after the flop cause I hit nothing.

Re-raise all in here or just flat as I did? I’m more inclined to say that shoving here would be better, since my stack is 7k and his 2.2k.

______________________________________

He checked the flop, should I c-bet here? Since he was the first raiser, I could put some A10, AJ, KJ on his range, since he called my 3bet. Since he jammed turn I had to drop.

_____________________________

Should I open here? Since I’m the chip leader of the table (12.5k), only 1 villain has a similar stack (9k) and all others are <3.5k
Idk, sometimes I feel i’m not being aggressive enough as the chip leader.

_____________________________

This was the key play of the tourney. The bubble had just ended and I got folded until myself at the btn. K10o, a reasonable hand and I choose to jam instead of raising cause I didn’t want to put myself into trouble with a 3bet or a call and a bad flop.

At this spot, with that hand, is it better to just do a normal raise or to jam as I did? With the jam I think he considered folding his A9s, which I doubt he would if I had just min raised there.

Thank you everyone 🙂
