      I'm an sng player mostly but noticed 1 mistake, checking your set of Kings, big mistake especially with the flush draw and inside straight draw. You have to try get your money in while you're ahead.

      The first hand AA is just bad luck, as are hands 3, 4 and 5.

      Try not to let the result of this session affect your mindset when playing next, if you keep getting your money in while you're ahead, your winnings will outweigh ur losses.
