43 hand at the start. I think he has an ace there a lot and never folding to a tiny $2 bet.
AT imo is a fine hand to defend BB vs CO reg open 100 deep.
J9s hand, I think you need to bet a couple more dollars on the flop purely for BD cos you want to size your turn shove in case you hit a FD. As played it was a little over pot and hence a little dodgy. If I did not have a BD, I'd bet the same cos I don't plan on shoving any turn cards.
73o hand I think is an FPS. I dont think we get enough folds from a tight btn and a fish in a squeeze spot 200 deep. I do understand that a similar spot was in jmans video, but I don't think its his std line and he mainly did it to illustrate the point. Plus they were not that deep and BTN was looser IIRC.
KK hand on Q22 board. I think I like a bigger bet on the turn cos it looks bluffier. Stacks are not deep enough to make him think he has much FE if we bet 40 anyway. So it really looks like a valuebet. If we bet closer to pot, he may think we are trying to bully him with Ad or similar. Another option is to bet half pot, 33. This still is good for protection, we set up a good river price that he will be hard pressed to deny with JJ and he may spazz out thinking he has FE.
33 hand I like with the only exception that you already looked bluffy to him earlier in the game, so he may be hero calling a J there some of the time.

You say that you got a lot of FE on the AQxr texture. But you also say you have enough FE on the turn (i think you need 40% FE to make the push profitable vs his callingrange). The thing i wonder about is IF you had enough FE on turn, do you ever have enough FE on the flop? You say he will fold 99,TT,JJ,KK,KQ on the turn, but if so, what is he folding on the flop?
