      Hi, i'm new to Poker (10k hands life).

      So, after analizing those hands, did i play em very badly or that was just bad luck?
      I know its a very small sample size but well, i feel like i'm having more dificult than i should at NL2....(Not complaining)...

      I'm on a "When i beat no-one pays, when they pay i'm beat" swing.

      Are those kind of swings standart?

      Imo:
      Hand 1: AA is a strong hand here, i dont think im folding here either..

      Hand 2: I dont mind that call preflop because you both were very deep. But i'd def prefer a fold, since the hand isnt really amazing (esp non-suited). I'd never raise the flop, more often than not these small bets are really strong - he wants you to call with a worse hands like 55 and if you missed, he wants you to bluffraise. I'd just call him down here if he continues to bet this small, if he suddenly pots the river just muck it.

      Hand 3: against such guy i wouldnt 3bet here ever.. You see he raises only 4% of the hands, so he probably has you crushed. As played, you dont need to cbet so big. You can bet much smaller, with such opp there is no chance that he'll bluffraise you. I'd probably bet the turn since you pick up nut fd and i think you have much more fold equity here then you had on the flop.

      Hand 4: Seems fine, even though i might check that queen on the turn because it hits any random straight draw except for 87. But def you played it well, kinda shocking to see that set right?

      Anyway i'd just say that you should just put in more volume, 10k hands isnt really much. Play at least fiddy k and then we can tell more. :)
