      first - drop a limit.use brm(!).
      2nd.u probably make something wrong if u r losing ur money.

      read the articles watch the videos post hands that u have lost.watch videos join coaching.

      take a break also.don't play when u lose.

      the hand played well.

      As said, go back to NL10 if you're low on cash (BRM!!).
      About the hand, preflop raise to $1.00 (4BB + 1BB per limper, in this case a poster).
      On the flop it's a very easy push!

      Thanks both for answers. Didnt know poster is consideret as limper, will do next time.

      About that BRM I am playing only cash games 20NL, 1 table, read articles and try to act according to them. NL10 is not very interesting for this strategy.

      Since that hand I continued playing same strategy, managed some wins and now I am at about 55 USD. So maybe it was only some bad luck serie.

      It is because its easier to get higher winrates because donks call u with almost ATC.
      NL20 is not the place to start, especially not with 1 table because it will destroy your motivation/discipline because you play like 5-10% of your total hands.
      In a hour with 1 table it means you only play 8~ hands average (80hands/perhour)

      Therefore popping up to 4 tables is wisely enough. Try with 2 if you still have to learn Multi tabling.
      Good luck!

      You should raise to 5 BB because of the BB Poster behind you. On the flop of course your all-in is correct to protect against several possible draws, nice hand.

      As you probably noticed you were favorite in this hand again. That's poker, you will lose often as a favorite and win sometimes as an underdog.

      #2 to shloogy again.

      #2 means number 2.
      So he's the second person sharing the same opinion.

      It's pretty much equal to "I second that", what also means "I agree with that".

      So he basically agrees with what you said :)

      yes I know that now. 80% of hands played by SSS I usualy win. I post only hands Ive lost to make sure I didnt make any mistake.

      thanks again for that concept. my bankroll is going slowly up now :)

      You should post hands you won too! Its a big fault just to check hands we lost because often we make bad plays in some hand but nevertheless we win.

      So if you had a taff decision or you were not sure what to do exactly but you won, you should not forget these hands you should post especially these.
      These hands will be a lot more interesting and helpful then a simple "i lost as an 80 % favorite with my overpair or what. Was my play correct?"
      Often if someone has an upswing he starts to play bad because he doesnt notice because he is winning anyway.

      For your consideration.
