Default Small Pairs & Weak Suited Aces - To Move or Not to Move...

I have a really tough time in these spots. Your comments on this 6 hand quiz would be much appreciated...

Tourney is the UB $200k Guaranteed.

1) Blinds 150/300 - MP3 just sat down, CO is 19/16/1.5

MP3 (t5095)
CO (t16950)
Button (t5725)
SB (t2880)
Hero (t8120)
UTG (t21765)
UTG+1 (t2980)
UTG+2 (t11795)
MP1 (t6145)
MP2 (t7010)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 4, 4.
5 folds</font>, MP3 raises to t850</font>, CO calls t850, 2 folds</font>. Hero?

2) One lap later...

MP3 (t5045)
CO (t22820)
Button (t5700)
SB (t4830)
Hero (t6870)
UTG (t24345)
UTG+1 (t15270)
UTG+2 (t11095)
MP1 (t6695)
MP2 (t5710)

Preflop: Hero is BB with 5, 5.
6 folds</font>, CO raises to t825</font>, 2 folds</font>. Hero?

3) Blinds now 200/400.

MP3 (t4820)
CO (t23720)
Button (t6100)
SB (t4230)
Hero (t4745)
UTG (t25495)
UTG+1 (t17920)
UTG+2 (t9645)
MP1 (t6945)
MP2 (t4760)

Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 5.
UTG calls t400, UTG+1 calls t400, 6 folds</font>, SB completes, Hero checks.

Flop: (t1600) A, T, K (4 players)</font>
SB checks, Hero checks, UTG bets t1200</font>, UTG+1 calls t1200, SB folds. Hero?

My initial plan was to get my chips in against one player but after this action what can I beat?

4) Blinds at 200/400. Villain is 17/15/5.5

UTG+2 (t4920)
MP1 (t30670)
MP2 (t4900)
MP3 (t23995)
Hero (t3995)
Button (t28445)
SB (t8920)
BB (t14325)
UTG (t8695)
UTG+1 (t3560)

Preflop: Hero is CO with 3, 3.
1 fold</font>, UTG+1 raises to t1900</font>, 4 folds</font>.

5) Very next hand. Villain is 28/14/1.6

UTG+1 (t4870)
UTG+2 (t30620)
MP1 (t4850)
MP2 (t23945)
Hero (t3945)
CO (t28395)
Button (t8670)
SB (t13875)
BB (t8645)
UTG (t4610)

Preflop: Hero is MP3 with 8, 8.
1 fold</font>, UTG+1 raises to t1110</font>, 3 folds</font>.

6) Blinds now 300/600. No info on Villain.

MP3 (t9840)
CO (t36765)
Button (t8925)
SB (t27545)
Hero (t4720)
UTG (t22570)
UTG+1 (t7370)
UTG+2 (t10785)
MP1 (t10975)
MP2 (t4830)

Preflop: Hero is BB with A, 5.
UTG+1 calls t600, 1 fold</font>, MP1 raises to t2800</font>, 5 folds</font>.

Hand 1:, fold... 7/8 time you will have to give this up on the flop. Next best option is push, worst option is call IMO.

Hand 2: Shove, You have FE here, and you probably are the best if you get called.

Hand 3: As played fold... may be a jam preflop with 1200 in dead money. probably will get looked up tho.

Hand 4: Fold, IMO I would rather be first 1 into a pot, so I have some fold equity. Here you are going to a show down hoping to be at best a coin flip.

Hand 5: Shove, 88 is a premium hand when you have less then 10 BB.

Hand 6: Fold, same argument as hand 4, and looking to have much the worst of it.

1-FOld
2-SHove
3-Fold
4-FOld
5-FOld- Close but Villain in this hand is ahead way too often. I'd call an open push but I think fold to this raise
6-FOLD

fold - I don't actually think call is as bad as people are making it out to be though.
shove
fold
fold
shove 88 is way ahead of anyone who raises 14 percent pf's opening range
fold

1) Fold. I might consider a call if MP3 was deep stacked and not raising somewhere around 1/6th of his stack from that pos.

..any interesting hands during this orbit that got you from 8120 to 6870? or did you end up calling the 44?..

2) Shove. It's gonna cost him 5,595 to win 6,870, I don't see him calling you light.

3) Easy fold. There's so many hands that are beating you here, and the utg limp and utg+1 limp helps narrow their ranges to something that had to hit this flop. (any reads on these two? that could help)

4) Fold. He's opening for almost 5x, I think it's an overweighted coinflip situation.

5) Fold. With his stack size, his range isn't big enough for this to be a +ev shove. If utg+2 made the raise, I might consider shoving.

6) Throw it away. No way this is a profitable shove with that action before you. Especially on ub since it's so much easier to ninja the shortstack than some other sites.

Why are you guys all folding hand 1 getting 4-1 immediate odds? Calling is super standard for me. I didn't even consider a fold when I read the hand and am really surprised that I'm the only one who calls here.
