Nice score on #2.

#1: Standard spot, you just got unlucky. Gotta win the flips.

#2: This hand depends on what type of player Player 4 is. Assuming player 4 is playing a pretty weak and loose game, trying to be a bully, I think it's a good shove, since his range is so wide he's going to fold a lot. You're pretty much never going to be ahead if he calls you, and certainly never better than a coin flip. At best you'll have a high card over his high Kx.

If he's on the tighter side however and doesn't steal a lot, I think it's a bad shove, he's mostly betting a better ace, pocket pair or high suited connectors. If he's aware of stack sizes, the top of his range you can make him bet/fold is probably a high Kx or something like JTs.

#3: When Player 1 opens to 3x, I'm putting him on a very strong hand. You mostly don't see that from recreational players unless they have a high ace or a high pocket pair. I'm assuming your plan was to shove it in his face if it folded to you, but I think you need to abandon that plan when Player 3 shoves. Player 3 has below 10 bb, so he's shoving pretty wide, but he still has a lot of kings and aces in his range. Against a strong bet and a shove, you're very seldomly ahead with AK here. Assuming Player 1 is a recreational player, most of the time your shove is gonna get called, and you'll see them flip over a pocket pair and Ax. AK doesn't hold up well three ways.

Double Bracelet Winner

I hope you feel better soon. It's not a good idea to try playing when you're ill, so look after yourself.
