Thank You guys for all comments and good advices, I really appreciate it. Its really good that you can find some help in the community when youre a bit down.
Ive tried in fact to implement earlier a lot of things you suggest. I played just 2 tables, tried to be focused and play my A-game. Before each session i was analyzing my trouble hands from the last session. Probably i was not consistent enough and failed anyway :-/
Whats funny i was winning player on NL10 and later after progressing at NL16 and to the some point at NL25.
I was running quite ok at NL10 and moved higher to NL16.
NL16 was really smooth, except of the tough beginning. Then i quickly moved to NL25, first 15-20 k hands i was running really good, but then suddenly i lost it :-/ I started losing heavily one session by one session. I moved back to NL16 and I was still losing, decided to go back to NL10 and you can see how it ended on the first graph, after the yellow line :-//
Not really sure what happened. I was trying to find my leaks, analyze it, but with no results. Was i lucky at the beginning? Maybe. What worse i feel really good with my skill, i feel that i should easiliy beat NL10. I have a feeling that i just run bad, bad runout after bad runout, KK vs AA, QQ vs KK and so on, but i guess that every losing player has the same feeling :-) I know for sure that i was having problems with mental aspect of poker, tilting heavily and losing many unneccessary BIs in losing sessions, frustrating myself (and my wife) and this kind of stuff. Im sure that everyone playing poker knows what Im talking about :-)
I was never considering to be a pro. I dont really care for this money i lost, I have a good day job in office and poker was some kind of hobby for me. I just wanted to beat the game, play 8-10 hours a week and study 1-2 hours a week. And this is the most frustrating thing that after so many years of playing (started in 2008, but was having a long breake and started again 1,5 years ago), so many hours spent on analysing the hands, watching videos on RIO, posting hands on forum i still cant beat even NL 10 :-///
Well, i decided to give up poker (at least take a longer breake), so ill have to find myself another hobby. My wife is very happy with my decision :-) Maybe from time to time ill try to play some tournaments to keep the dream of becoming a millionaire in one night :-)
Thank You guys once again for support, you were really helpfull, Im still crushed when i see how deep you analyze the hands :-) I wish You a good luck at the tables !!!

I really hate this game, every day i can see it more cleary, i should quit it and never ever in my life play poker.
Day by day, i try to seat to game with clear mind, focused and with good attitiude and play my A - game, but every time it ends exactly the same. Lost session and tilt. Shouldnt i win from time to time? Just like bad players do, they sometimes win. I feel like im losing every fu...ing time.
And whats more funny, how can you beat this fu....ing rake.
Do i really pay more than 10bb/100 on P* !!!!!! Its not possible, i just cant belive it.......
Where do you guys play? On what sites?
Sorry for spam, but Im so frustrated right now. And the worst thing is that i try to get better, i try to study, learn and completely nothing, 0 effects.
And its ruins my day, Im angry and in the bad moon, my wife is angry on me and so on.
Really hate it.
I really should quit this game, it looks that my mind is not prepared for such things.

Yeah, this is my big problem that i stick to the hand and to the story. When i start bluffing i do it till the end, even though i should know that it has no sense. It cost me so many BIs😕 And now so many people just check/call me and let me put the money in the middle when im behind, I still dont know how to deal with it 😕

1) Value range - AA, KK, QQ, maybe AQ sometimes, and of course Ax flushes
2) Bluff range - I assumed that he may have a lot of Ax bluffs in his range, like AK, AJ, AT, A9, A8, all of them probably suited
3) I have no stats and pool tendencies its hard to say, 3 barrel bluffs in 3bet pots happens on NL25 but its kinda hard to say how often
Generally it looks that vs unknown there is too many unknown factors to call it down profitably :-/

14/11 player opens from UTG. Number of hands is kinda decent, so vs this my squeeze range would be very tight, QQ+ i think. But not sure if MP pays attention to it :-)
But even if we widen it and we add more hands than they would hit this flop very hard, by addittional hands i mean, AQ, JJ, TT, or AJs. It may be hard for villain to call the second barrel, cause were still uncapped and we have a lot of nuts here vs the guy capped range.
May 23, 2019 | 7:58 p.m.
Guys, why dont we want to barrel the turn? With our 35% cbet, he may stick around with a lot of PP, 9x, Tx, maybe Jx. Lot of it will fold to 2nd barrel and additionally we have uncapped range vs his very capped range after two calls PF. Isnt it a good spot to bluff? Maybe not bluff, but semubluff cause we have 4 clean outs (T) and 6 unclean (A and K). What do you think?
May 23, 2019 | 1:12 p.m.
villain is completely unknown.
As i said, unknown villain but its SB vs BB. If it were other positions it would be fold on river or even on turn. But SB vs BB ranges are so wide, that im not sure. Can i call the unknown down? Or should i just fold the river?

Thanks for opinions. I have to admit that all arguments you gave have a lot of sense and its hard to discuss with them.
Im probably a bit results oriented (again) cause he shows QQ but as You say he may also have a lot of worse hands when we check-check the river.
May 22, 2019 | 6:20 p.m.
he is playing 27/21 after 260 hands opening from UTG 6%, but i guess that sample is too small.
1) PF - probably 3betting will be better, but i guess that calling is also fine
2) Flop - decided to just call cause K fits his range much better than mine, should i raise here
3) Turn - he is betting strong, not sure if i can call here, it looks that he has a lot of Kx or AA, maybe 99, not sure if he opens 22 and 55 from UTG and he shouldnt have FD cause i block As
4) River - not sure what to do, its hard to find his bluffing range here, cause there is K on board and i block A and Q, I tried to bet and take the pot but now i think that it was bad idea, on the other hand i dont like checking behind either :-/ What would You do ?? Do you agree with the range I gave him in point 3) ?
Thanks for opinions !
