My opinions.
1. A8 I think I have to fold in this spot.. unless he bet small and then I just have to call it down.
2. I don't know how should I play differently this one. This pot size bet after I check it's strange. And I think I just got unlucky he had set, probably some players would play same with flush draw or even weaker K.
3. Probably I needed to shove here with my stack or re-raise more, because in this spot I think even guy who re-raised me would have cards like suited connectors or like this guy small pocket pair they still calling because it's cheap for them to check the flop.
4. Don't know about this hand I think I played it good, river bet small because if he have like QJ he will pay my off and if he push all in I'm folding.

Hand 1: you should have been all-in OTF. Raise the donkbet from villain_3, villain_2 would have 3betted and you shove for value. Him having 1010 is ofc akward but will happen almost never.

Hand 2: you are the aggresor, cbet the flop! When you get raised, be very cautious. TPTK is not a hand that can stand a lot of action.

Hand 3: 5bet shove pre ! you have the best possible holding, get it in.
Sidenote: Your 5bet is nicely sized. If stacks were deeper, like 200-250BB, I like your 5bet.

Hand 4: If you raise pre you are the aggressor. Make a cbet, be aggressive, don't check/call.
If you get to the turn, after your cbet is called, you can second barrel or check/call. if your second barrel is called, be very cautious. if it is raised: Fold!. Check/calling is a safer way imo, so I would prefer that.
OTR you suddenly wake up and bet a bit more than half pot. What hands do you think will call, that dont have you beat? I cant think of any. check and hope to get a showdown, fold if not.

In general: be much more aggressive postfop as aggressor. But believe a raise. Toppair/overpairs are often not enough to withstand a raise.
Preflop games looks oke

Just my opinion.

reading your thoughts now...

No way you should have folded this. you hit trips with the best kicker, happy to get it in asap

Why would QJ pay you off? QJ is a q-high hand that hasnt even showdownvalue. KJ is probably the only hand that might call and not beat you, but KJ would prob not play like this.
