      i am very new to poker and am now playing for not even a week.
      Overall i feel like i learn fast but i have one very big issue that i need to fix ASAP to be sucessfull:
      I make constant profit and than loose it all again with a single hand and those hands are in 95% the best preflop hands you can get.

      I hope you can help me here. For your overview those are my stats from PokerStars and WilliamHill since i started:

      PS: (i maked some hands while playing where i though i played really bad/had luck

      WH: (didnt play to many hands there but the same pattern is showing)

      Could you recoment me any article to go through with this kind of problem?
      Want me to post and special hands from the marked ones at PStars?

      My own evaluation:
      I dont know when i have to fold big hands when they arent big hands anymore and i keep them far to long/take them to showdown with bad odds and probably worse potodds.

      Hey TobZ!

      I've taken a quick look at the links and from what I can tell you lost big money with also not so good hands. The QJ hand you lost 190bb with air. Well it looks like you 4bet QJs there and shove flop, while it might just be a fold vs his 3b.

      The AK hand you are calling a raise otf w/ just 2 over cards. Again that just a fold for me.

      The TT hand you call a 3b and thats probably OOP, you get it in on the turn. But what worse hands are gettting it in on the turn.

      Thats what I see from the quick look at the screenshot. Plus it's also a very small sample.

      But I suggest you copy your biggest losing hands, post them in our hand evaluation forums and I'm sure you'll find some leaks then!
