      Hi,

      I have built and lost all my bankroll because this leak..


      I can'y seem to figure the best way to fix it. I always run into overpairs pre flop while having mid pairs.

      If you ever had this problem before.. how did you fix it?

      Thanks.

      You can fix that by folding.

      It should be OK for you to fold even KK if the board has an A and you have high indicators that villain has another A.

      In other words, learn to fold.

      22-99 and even TT don't have much value unless you hit a set.

      but what about preflop where i give a good raise from my mid pockets, then get reraised with 3 bet?

      do i call and see the flop or just fold?

      Call20 rule. You have 22-TT so really, you're only looking for a set in a 3 bet pot so you and villain both need at least 20x the raise in your stacks for you to find a profitable call.
