      Hi, not posted for a while but been slogging away for a few months and ended up tilting NL25 and losing it all... Tilt being kept to a minimum is definitely an immediate goal for me.

      Anyway, decided to work from NL2 again, £30 ($46ish) deposited. Literally the first hand I entered, not sure I played it totally correctly, advice appreciated. Sorry, posting from my phoneand my sure how to convert the hand.

      (Also, unsure whether or not to show ids. If its not cool I'll understand if admin delete it and I'll repost a legal thread, thanks.)

      Hello Keifla,

      Here is a small help for you how to post hands and convert them: link.

      Preflop: Why do you raise those hands in first place? They are very bad to play and often dominated, fold directly. Exactly this even happens where you level yourself to Call vs those raises.

      As played
      Postflop: Why would you donk the flop? Rather Check/Raise it, he was the preflop aggressor. Nor I don't get your min-3bet there! If you 3bet then at least do it normally, you are giving him good odds to draw.

      Best Regards.
