      week 1

      Question 1: my motivation would be same as everyone else to make a few easy euro (how wrong i was).

      Question 2 : my weaknesses well where do i start not playing tight enought, over playing poor hands playing tired or not giving he game my full focus and by far my biggest weakness is not playing aggressive enought with good starting hands. But there is nothing worse when u hit KK raise and everyone folds.

      Question 3: tight aggressive playing only the best starting cards in a way that u are putting pressure on other players 2 make mistakes

      Good job! Homework #1 Done!

      Most of the weakness you wrote can easily be fixed with you posting hands (analyzing your session). We will start writing feedback to your play. Usually negative feedback will put you into thinking phase and trying to fix all those leaks. It's almost the same as you lose money, you will remember it more than winning part. By this situation it's gonna be that negative feedback you gonna remember and try to avoid them next time.

      Also about the KK hand, I mean if even everyone folds then there is not much to do, at least you didn't loose whole stack. Don't let yourself motivate or make tilty by that everyone folded. Just continue playing and in long run they are going to pay you.

      It seems that you have pretty basic problems right now which means that you have to find a way how you can follow the starting hand chart to learn preflop and postflop play. Most likely also playing pretty loose.

      Tight style is usually called playing rather selected hands. Like following the Starting Hand Chart. Aggressive should be also pretty clear that already the word says how you should be playing. But the problem playing aggressively is that you have to watch that you don't play too aggressive. Find good spots, find good targets.
