      Just sat down for a session earlier and have been losing alot of money with my AK's. ;(

      All this hands where at the very start of my session with no reads on any players or stats.

      Any tips on how I could improve my play???

      Hey Bondy5,

      Welcome to the SSS/MSS forum!

      In the future I would kindly ask you to stick to the one hand per thread rule.

      #1

      It's well played. You have to go all-in there with your TPTK, specially after you showed weakness on the turn.

      #2

      Nice hand again, you have to bet bet bet for value. You could also consider shoving turn straight away with barely over potsize left in your stack.

      #3

      Nice hand once again! with such a small stack left on the flop you have nothing else to do but to c-bet shove.

      #4

      Here you should just go all-in on the flop as a c-bet like you did in the hand #3. Here it's even better because you have additional outs for wheel draw and so you have better equity in case villain calls.

      P.S.: Might have been a bad session, but soon AK will bring you some nice bucks if you continue to play well! :f_wink:

      Best regards,
