      $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Holdem
      6 players
      Converted at weaktight.com

      Stacks:
      UTG ($6.93)
      UTG+1 ($9.85)
      CO ($6.47)
      Hero (BTN) ($12.25)
      SB ($5.31)
      BB ($5.07)

      Pre-flop: ($0.07, 6 players) Hero is BTN Q:heart: J:spade:
      UTG calls $0.05, 1 fold, CO calls $0.05, Hero calls $0.05, SB calls $0.03, BB checks

      Flop: 2:heart: J:diamond: J:heart: ($0.25, 5 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, UTG checks, CO bets $0.15, Hero raises to $0.45, UTG+1 says "caca", SB folds, BB folds, UTG raises to $1.75, CO folds, UTG says "i have a pair", Hero folds, UTG+1 says "i have a blue car"

      Final Pot: $1.30

      UTG wins $2.55 ( won +$0.75 )
      SB lost -$0.05
      BB lost -$0.05
      CO lost -$0.20
      Hero lost -$0.50

      Because i'm in a difficult period (after 5500 hands played my BR is at same level due to 70% bad beats and 30% mistakes\tilt) i have the felling that i can't take the right decisions anymore, i am scared that i will loose my money.
      Besides the fact that limping here with QJ preflop is not the best option, should i go broke on the flop? I see only 2 hands that my opponent could 4-bet on the flop: pocket 22 and KJ and with this hands villain had me beat here, with other hands i think he would play differently.

      UTG c/4bet after a raise and a 3bet ... so i'm def. going to fold my QJ here too.

      I think he has 22 or KJ,AJ which many players limp from UTG. And because you and villain are 1,5 stacks deep i'm folding.

      Also i've recognized that villain very often has a big hand if he is typing and so trying to get you calling. (this is only my personal experience)
