      Hi, I hoped I would never write in this section, but...
      I moved 2 days ago to NL15.
      Played 2k hands and already lost 120$....
      I mean, thats like 8 buyins///and all bad ones....
      My cont bets always get called.
      AK(s) gets reraised/called, and blank flop/turn/river is already waiting me.
      My AA got cracked 3 times, once by 37s on the flop, and once with AJs with all in preflop.
      My set of 8s turned to a fullhouse, just to be beaten off a better fullhouse as the river card double paired the board.
      And so on........
      Perhaps I remember only the bad beats.
      I currently have 22VPIP/9PFR/3TAF which is far from perfect for a TAG.
      Also, Im In a sort of a tired and not caring tilt, i just cant let go of a hand.
      Should I take a break?

      I didn't know NL15 even exists.

      8 buyins in 2k hands is not small, but it's also nothing, I'm sure everyone here has had much worse swings.

      Yes, you are result orientated here.

      Looks like you've got a lot of room for improvement there. This is way too passive (especially if you 6-max) and slightly loose (or way loose if you play full ring).

      Yes, study some article/post hands.
