      A few days ago I started playing heads up sng gos at party poker, but I just keep suffering a bad beat after bad beat. So I thought that I don't played those hands correctly or something.
      Almost at every sng I loose my opponent beats me with with 3 outs or less.
      Here are a few hands from today, maybe you can tell me what did I did wrong.

      Ask yourself if you played each hand correctly. Post hands on the forum and get other peoples opinions.

      Hand 1 u should have gone for pot control after the turn
      Hand 2 u should have folded the flop and the turn.
      Hand 3 u played fine

      The important thing is that you make the right decisions. Also learn not to care so much about the money that you win/lose.

      On hand 2 I know that i should have folded, but on the first hand I don't think someone would've folded that, or put him on 36 or something like that

      Man i don't think going all-in with QA is a good ideia on that situation...

      Did u notice that suspicious raise sugesting a pocket pair on the vilains's hand? (Hand 3)

      Hand 2 you should have folded, any A would kill you. And the guy wasn't passive so, u should have realized he had an A.


      Well, hand one i wouldn't have folded at all...i think it was a bad beat...

      On hand 1 you should raise pre with any A
      Hand 2 I'd fold on the turn, because on flop there could be any other pocket pair or middle pair, but on the turn it is obvious that its Ax
      Hand 3 is standart
