      Hello BGawli,

      Especially from such a spot. We can't really Call there while having so many opponents behind us. Either 3bet/Fold it or just fold directly.

      Best Regards.

      Final thought.
      As you can see, coach, this session wasn't bad as I thought first. More hands in this hand which bothered me, i didn't have . My condition of my mindset a little touched because I was frustrated that any kind of good play finished with nothing... like in this hand:
      - Jj 22.11
      - AKo ex.2 the same opp 22.11
      - AKo ex.3 the same opp 22.11
      - A2o 22.11
      - QJo 22.11

      + one suck out and cooler:

      This whole hands caused that I was a little frustrated and started playing a little different like in those examples:
      - KQo 22.11 I could have saved $2.75
      - A3s 22.11 I could have saved $3.90. For me on NL10 this hand like this isn't big deal but on NL10 I'm winning player
      - AA the same opp 22.11 it's hard to say if I had lost value in this hand. We couldn't be sure if our opp would have called our 4 bet but what can I say... no more slowplaying AA just 4bet...

      I've played just 11 session in this month, it's about 2500hands and I'm on 4BI behind because of situation like this:

      I don't claim that I play perfect poker because I don't. I make common mistakes but I think that it's normal. Even on NL10 I make a lot of mistake but situation is a little different. I'm winning player and I know that I'm able to be winning player. Here on NL20 it's new limit and... I want to be a winning player as fast as possible, I want to prove myself that I play good. Situation is very similar when I started playing NL10. I had also bad run for about >20k hands. Where in my opinion I made more mistakes than now on NL20 so far.
      I'm sure that I'm aggrandized this hole situation because I lost money in normal situation, not cause by tilt or totally bad play. It's new limit, new size of money so I have to keep going and don't worry with losing session.
      On NL10 I started winning after 30k hands so here 2600 hands it's nothing.
      I would like to thanks you, coach, for support in this harsh time for me. It's big deal for me that you help me in my skill and mindset.
      Now I will implement tips from your feedback to the game and keep going.
      First I will focus on:
      - bet sizing preflop: 4xbb- EP, pot size bet- MP, 3xbb- LP, 4bb- SB
      - bet sizing in 3B: 3x IP, 4x OOP
      - start using colors by marking bad players
      - taking more note in PT
      I will gradually implement new tips from feedback in the future and you will see result in private coaching in next month.
