I'm not saying that I did the right thing because he folded. I am curious what part of his range he folded since he has a tight 4-bet range that was the main point of my previous comment.
By posting hands here is clear that I want to improve my mistakes.
Can you explain what do you mean by "forget what your opponent is doing" because all I hear in videos here and in other sites like RIO is to exploit my opponent's expecially at micro stakes and to do that I have to pay attention to what my opponent is doing

Lately, I've been losing and losing really bad... I lost the confidence I had in my game, I've never lost so much in a month and most of my entire winnings are gone...
I'm a micro-stakes player and for most of you the amount I lost is laughable but I wanted to share some thoughts with all of you so forget that I am a micro stakes player for a while because I think that this is something that all of us as poker players go through at some point in our poker journey.
As poker players, our "job" is a lonely one. Some of us will have the luck of having friends that play poker and the ideal scenario is being surrounded by people that are better than us and see and explain to us things that we don't understand yet. But for most of us, we'll have no one to talk to in our friend's circle about poker. Our only choice is to come to forums like Run it once and try to get a glimpse of that ideal scenario.
And I tell you if you don't have someone in your daily life to talk about poker, your journey is a lot harder and it takes a toll in your mental game. Your doubts are amplified you don't have someone to tell you what is normal variance or bad play. So here is where we come to the forums and post some hands but one thing is posting a hand other is having someone with you looking through that really bad session.
So you have two options here: You can feel sorry for yourself and give up because the world is against you or you couldn't care less about your circumstances and work your a** off.
Review your sessions, read articles, post in here, watch videos and if you don't understand something comment on the video is for that that videos have a comment section. You will not be a lone wolf forever your attitude and your work ethic will bring the right people in your life. You are losing now, who cares? Be the player that works the hardest in your table, be the guy who sees the mistakes that other players are making. Just because you are a better player doesn't mean that you are entitled to win every single pot. Short term is all about variance, you care about your long-term result even pocket aces get cracked by 72o 12% of the time.
Make the right decisions and don't give a f*ck for what happens next. The hardest walk you can make is the walk you make alone but that is the walk that makes you the strongest.

Great video! I always had a trouble with being too much result oriented, always checking how much I won/lost after each session, but with the explanation, you gave about variance at the beginning of the video that will change for sure! Thank you and can't wait for part 2

He's using a big 3bet sizing, I don't know if he uses it on all of his 3bets or he's telegraphing his hand strength.
I put him in a pretty narrow range JJ+, AQs+, AQo+
I think I can call the flop but on the turn now that I'm thinking of it there isn't much that I bet besides AQ and I don't think he would do this line with AQ.
I still find it difficult to think in ranges if there's some mistake please tell me about it

Today session I end up losing 2 buy-ins I was losing much more but I could win some of the money back.
The funny thing is that it was losing more than I ever lost, but I didn't tilt, I catch it early on when I lost a hand to a fish with A3o on the blinds. Although I lost some money I'm feeling really good about my Tilt control today. It's all about mindset and understanding that you will and you have to lose sometimes is just the way that poker works.

I've come to realize that the most important thing that you can do to help you grow in poker and in life, in general, is to don't care about results or don´t give it so much importance as most of us give. It's easier said than done.
Feeling smart when you are learning instead of feeling smart when you are being flawless. Really like this way of thinking because it makes you get out of your comfort zone and improve.

These past few days have been busy!! Didn't have the time to make the video, tomorrow I'm gonna try to do it.
Today session was pretty monotone, without any big pot but made a good profit in the end.
Start to listen to podcasts when I'm driving is a good way to seizing that time.
Any podcast recommendations are welcome.

Today session was a rollercoaster, I felt that I was a bit tilted early in the session but I wanted to continue to play since you only know how to deal with tilt when you face it head-on.
It's very difficult to play right when you only see the money that you lost and you want to win it back, but one thing that I notice is that I am more aggressive when I'm tilted and that is something that I could implement in my "normal" game, not to the same level of aggression that I use when I'm tilted but a bit more aggression in my normal game could be a good thing.
I ended the session on the plus side but my game was not the best.
I guess that you cant eliminate tilt completely, is something that will always be there.
The best thing to do is to know what makes you tilt and try to keep that feeling small as possible and if that doesn't work well... we have two options, we can stop playing or we can continue playing and try to learn how to control ourselves.
The second one is the one that makes the most sense to me, I fell that the first one we are just running away from a problem not really doing anything to improve our situation.

Today I played against two whales at the same table and got stacked by one of them.
I felt a little tilted but I could control myself and lost only a stack. These things happen I know but I need to put more effort into my game. I didn't give him enough credit because even if you open 80% of hands sometimes you will have aces.
I'm thinking of making the video tomorrow or Friday.

Sup, my good people!!!! (HYPE GUY)
I saw a post by James Hudson on another journal asking why most of the journals here don't have videos of the person playing and thought that is a wonderful idea and is something that I'm gonna start to do about once a week( video between 10-20min)
The book i'm currently reading is "The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck" and it's a nice read so far.
I've been listing to this song from Eminem non stop lately

Today I received an email that my monthly payment failed and since is weekend I can't contact my bank to ask what happen.
I had the essential membership (old price) and it really means a lot to me since the new price is about 1/4 of my poker bankroll (2NL Player)
