      ok, When playing on a table that calls my raises with complete crap what should i do? its been getting me into a lot of bad all in like this one that just happend.

      ive had to deposit money twice now after going threw my banroll.... pretty much i keep losing big with my big hands to very bad hands...... for example ill refer to this which happend recently. anything i can do? raise bigger preflop?

      i geuss in this hand considering a limper i should have raised another 10 cents or 20 or so?

      Hi Jeffpm07,

      You have gone through your Bankroll twice already? I strongly suggest you take more time to read articles, view videos and attend coachings. You most likely still have several very large leaks in your play.

      Considering that hand that you posted there are several errors.

      First off you are sitting at the table with $4.20. This is neither Shortstack (where you would have already needed to get up) nor bigstack. You should play either SSS or BSS but not with a Midstack.

      Then as you said - after 1 limper raise to 4BB+1BB for each limper. So 50 cents.

      On the flop I would bet atleast 2/3 potsize. After the re-raise immideatly push all-in.

      As for losing the hand: you got your money in while ahead - nothing more you can do.

      But still. Please read the articles - continue posting hands - and attend coachings / watch videos.

      Best regards,
