      very bad luck on this hands, but IMO you are raising too little preflop and too little post flop (the hand you have nut straight and minraise the turn) , also hand #1 is more a coin flip on the flop (utg did play the hand terrible)

      Most of all very bad play. You are giving your oppenents all the odds in the world for them to chase their hands.

      #1 One limper and you just call your AJ. Should raise 4BB+1. In the flop if no raise you should at east raise 3/4 or 2/3 of the pot. Small raises not scare anyone, so you will get beat many times by runners.

      #2 If have a OESD so you should bet the flop. Everyone checks till you so make the bet. The turn once again your bet is again too small. If you had bet in the flop you would probably scared that pair 88;

      #3 Once again bad play. Should have bet more in the flop and the turn. You should put him all in in the turn.

      #4 AKs 3 limpers raise to .70 pre flop. With that pot In the flop bet 1.5$. It's hard to put your opponnets in a range if you betting make possible to them have any kind of hand.

      #5 What are you doing in the table with 7$?? Big stack you play with 100BB never least. Besides that this hand is weel played.

      # 6 7 8 - same mistakes has before.

      My advice is try to play less hands and study a litle more. The more better you play less luck will affect your game.

      As I said, I don't play perfectly.

      Its easy to fault me on not betting enough but saying that is "VERY bad play" is just stupid considering how they called and how much they hit.

      You should know that its nearly impossible to make somebody stop calling on 0.02/0.04 - they are all calling stations. I would have just lost more if I followed your ways.

      That sums it up. To make money at SSS you need to be perfect, or near perfect. Post your hands in the correct forum. This is how your bad beats should look...

      I could only find 2 AK bad chum beats for you, as opposed to about 30 chum crushing hands. Learn to play correct and you mostly chase bad hands away, and go in dominating others for +EV. Play at NL10 minimum.

      It's indeed very bad play, post your hands in hand judge forums and you will get argumented critisism, just look at your 1st hand, why do you bet so small. on the river you should fold as you only beat busted fd(which he actually had here :X ), in the 2nd hand you just limp with a spewy hand for MP, then just minraise with the nuts and get your money in when you are dead, not commenting other hands.. Just post the hands in hand judging forums, you should do it regulary and try to understand what people say there and reread articles.

      Also you should reread psychology articles ASAP as your lost missplayed hands lead to missleading ideas based on your experience which are very harmful for your bankroll. (I am about you saying you would loose more)

      Hi Therk

      I understand your frustration... it will happen... I do believe that the previous posts have highlighted a lot of the mistakes that you have made.... and there are a lot....

      You said that you would have lost a lot more if you had played the hands as suggested... I disagree.... some hands yes, other hands you may have won.... I would take a good look at all the articles again and again, not only will they teach you how to eliminate the dead money, how to control a hand, how to put someone on a range and how to maximise the value of your winning hands, they will teach you how to make a profit long term, and how to maximise your edge over the donks....

      It's frustrating now, but all you can really do is work on your game and improve, follow BRM so you don't go bust, and chalk up your experience points with all your bad beats...

      This hand is cmpletely missplayed, raise to 0.4 here, 4bet to 2$(as played), by minraising you give them outstanding odds to continue with almost any cards and they assume you have strong hand so their implied odds are huge, I capitalize on such play so often, it's just get opponent's stack or fold on the flop and it's so +EV for good players. Villain was donk going allin pf tho.

      Solo you are totally right. I just saw that he had gone all in preflop and didn't look to the bet pattern. It's correct to go all in pre flop, but the bet should be as you said.

      I've almost 30K hands in NL5 with a winnig rate of 18BB/100, so i know perfectly how bad are the players there. I know they can't stop calling that's why you should protect your hands pre flop. Make them pay big by their mistakes. If you think it's stupid for me to say how bad is your play i'll will not say any more, i was trying to help you improve your game .. if you want to keep playing like you do the "donks" will thank you.

      Good games

      you didn't play it poorly, the guy went all in with Q2s before the flop, if the hits trips it's not your fault. and you can't do anything about it

      I am playing exactly how SSS should be played and my Bankroll is getting absolutely pummeled, much more than before.

      Does anybody want to give advice now?

      You are playing absolutely wrong game. I gave you advice 3 times already, read articles, especially the psychological ones. Post hands on hand judgement section, not here! many of them are all played wrong. Last ones are coolers.

      please use a hand converter, and the apropiate forum to post hands, these last hands are played fine btw.

      and remember, people getting 4 outers , 2 outers, 3 outers , or whatever is not your fault and it doesn't mean SSS doesn't work. if you have a downswing there's nothing you can do, however there will always be something to do to improve your game.

      good luck at the tables.
