      I am a very good SNG player and all my profits over the past two years has come from this type of game. Cash games are the opposite and its driving me nuts.

      I slowly build a profit at cash and them Wham ! I lose a big hand and its all gone. How do you get away from holding QQ pre-flop, raising x5 and getting two callers. The flop is 10 6 3 of various suits. A great flop for QQ so as i am acting first I raise three quarters the pot, I get a call and then a re-raise. Should of I folded ? Anyway I shipped in and sure as eggs is eggs the raiser had 33.

      Would any of you have folded with my hand and if so why ?

      HELP !

      That's pretty common. If you find that they raise your flop and turn bet even with top pair I would think about folding it. Especially if they have been tight before hand. If you wanna play cash get a HUD. PokerTracker 3 or Holdem Manager. Free trials are available. It's a must when playing cash. I've only had mine for a week and I don't think I could live without it.

      Chin up, long term is king. Don't worry about short term luck.

      Don't think i'd be calling an all in on that hand. Usually when a player starts getting really aggressive at low stakes they have a very good hand. Usually when you're calling in that spot they are turning over at least two pair, usually a set.

      Playing an overpair in single raised pot is always opponent dependant =)
