      I probably did the best thing here, but since I am tottaly beaten by the poker today, I feel very discouraged, beaten, and demoralised so I wonder could this be played any other way around.

      Hey asmirovic,

      Preflop I would prefer to raise 4BBs, to get as much money in as possible and to try to get the hand heads-up.

      Postflop is well played, not much you could do there, just a cooler.

      And tough days come in poker, but if you keep improving and working on your game you'll have more great days than bad ones for sure. ;)

      Regards,

      THx burek, I appreciate your effort and words of encouragement.
      3BB raise is made because much too often my 4BB raise from UTG dont get called so I get to collect blinds only with monsters.
      So every once in a while I drop this to 3BB in hope I will get someone to put money in the game easily.
      They also sometimes see it as a pure steal, or weaknes, so I get re-raised with Ax,or JQ,KQ hand, so I can go AI.

      But in 90% of cases I always tend to raise 4BB except for blind steal offcourse.

      3bb would have been ok normally, but since there was a limper you needed at least 4BB.
