We might just flat, but if we want to see all five cards on the board we might want to rejam, although Villain is probably calling no matter what. Alternatively, stop and go play might be interesting. We can flat and then donk jam

Genuinely tricky spot as Villain's range is full of value hands. I don't blame you if you folded

So this is in hopes you get AK to fold? Feel like this spot is tricky we are either way ahead or way behind. I think you gotta rejam with AQ though.

I am kinda a nit in this spot and want to lean toward fold. Flatting is very uncomfortable and re-jam is a tad marginal. Conserving our stack is never terrible with that being said. Any reads at all? 4x pre when villian is 15bb deep is odd. It is either a shove or fold and is super close in ev imo, just don't call.

4x pre-flop with 15bb IS odd, but it's worth remembering that there are a number of players who literally don't do any push/fold until they're at 10bb or below. I think one of the best notes you can take for SNG's is at what # of blinds players start their push/fold games.

This^
This spot is gross. It really depends on player tendencies or any reads you may have on this opponent. AQx is really strong and depending on the ranges you put him on jam or fold or both fine. In spots that feel really close and or aren't sure just fold
