      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $48.09 (192.4 bb)
      SB: $25.56 (102.2 bb)
      BB: $27.34 (109.4 bb)
      UTG: $66.51 (266 bb)
      Hero (MP): $34.06 (136.2 bb)
      CO: $25 (100 bb) 25/21/13%3b (28h)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with Q Q
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.75, CO raises to $2.25, 3 folds, Hero raises to $5.50, CO raises to $11, Hero raises to $34.06 and is all-in, CO calls $14 and is all-in

      Flop: ($50.35) 3 6 9 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($50.35) J (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($50.35) 5 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      $50.35 pot ($2 rake)
      Final Board: 3 6 9 J 5
      Hero showed Q Q and lost (-$25 net)
      CO showed A A and won $48.35 ($23.35 net)

      Quite embarrassed by this! His stats looked aggressive, but 28 hands is no sample size at all.

      I think that one big leak I have after moving up from NL10 to NL25 is that I assume villains are much better / trickier / more aggressive than they actually are! I have made quite a few bad spewy plays after completely levelling myself in situations where, at my previous limit, it would have been an obvious fold and just move on. Anyone else have a similar experience in over-adjusting to a new limit rather than just building from their previous solid game?

      you could fold at lower limits, though at higher limits people are capable of min 5betting as a bluff or with a merged range. I just think that back in the day at NL50 to NL200 it was almost always AA. I would assume that NL25 hasn´t caught up with all the min 5betting stuff that has been going on at higher limits so we can just fold here I think.
