      ok so i am a fish in HU, just donking around, trying to learn, reading a book, watching some vids, but it costs me pretty much atm, so here r few hands in which i want to ask if my lines were ok and i just got coolered or if it was really just a poor play

      BB: $63.55
      Hero (BTN/SB): $85.75

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN/SB with Q :spade: Q :heart:

      BB bets $15, Hero raises to $52.55, BB calls $36.45 all in

      River: ($127.10) 5 :heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      my thought proccess above is, i didnt want to 4b coz i did it once before only and he folded to it, so we didnt have some crazy dinamic for me to be 4betting there, FLOP, he had high bet turn% and i wanted to let him bluff so i call, when the T hits on the turn and he bets aggain, i thought to myself, ok aggainst KK/AA i would be in the same shape as if i pushed pre, AJ,AT some other brodways r in his range and some nines maybe, but i thought i have a clear shove there... he had hit full house with TT

      BB: $52.25
      Hero (BTN/SB): $51.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN/SB with K :heart: J :club:
      Hero raises to $1.50, BB calls $1

      River: ($102.40) 6 :heart: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      aggain i wanted him to berrol turn and on turn i thought he could have pair+straight draws, QJ, gutshots, so i thought it was clear to push as well..
      he had T9 for 2nd nuts

      ok, so he was outdrawing me during all the match, i got frustrated and this was the final hand after which i couldnt play anymore...

      BB: $146.00
      Hero (BTN/SB): $53.95

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN/SB with A :heart: 9 :spade:
      Hero raises to $1.50, BB calls $1

      Flop: ($3.00) 3 :diamond: 2 :diamond: A :club: (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $2, BB raises to $7.10, Hero calls $5.10

      Turn: ($17.20) A :diamond: (2 players)

      River: ($42.20) T :heart: (2 players)
      BB bets $124.90 all in, Hero calls $32.85 all in

      so on the flop, i knew he was c/r draws, bluffs, even weak tp, so i call, T obviosly brings the flush, but as i said, frustration and disbelife that he had outdrawn me for i dont know which time and yea, depressing... :/
      anyways, please comment on lines i took, and if my thought proccess was fishy/wrong, or if it ws ok???
      tnx

      Hi,

      all 3 are very standard hands, you can 4-bet QQ and also raise on the flop, but generally you´re not getting away your hand postflop.
      Also with KJ he can c/r flop and bet turn with worse hands, so I´d also shove turn for value and A9 also seems too strong to b/f turn and although flushdraw get there, players would make enough moves in 3-bet pots that you can shove or at least call him down

      best regards,
