      Hello BigAl123456,

      Sorry to say that but according to few last hands seems like you played on tilt. :( Try to understand next time when you are on tilt and just stop playing and continue on next day.

      About the game, the question is what do we want to hit on flop which is good enough to continue? Most likely only trips or 2pair+, so more often I would just fold it preflop even if we get that great odds, we wont hit that often to make the Call profitable and for example if we hit only Ace on the flop it will be hard to continue since our kicker could be too weak.

      Best regards.
