Thanks for your answer. The reason is that I assume that specific opponent doesn't 3bet light. It seems the classic TAG who makes money at the micros by playing only monsters and value betting as hell. But I may be wrong.

I noticed I'm really struggling playing the SB against UTG/MP. I'm really unsure how to play hands like AJ, AQ, KQs, 77, 88, 99, TT.
What I think is that they are not a 3bet for value, nor for bluff either. But calling seems very bad because it opens BB the opportunity to squeeze/join us.
Can anyone provide me some SB ranges/tips how to deal with such situations? I'd really appreciate.

I approached the level up in this way:
When you have 110 buy ins for that stake, you move up, shot-taking that level. If you drop to 100buy ins again, you move down.
You must be honest with yourself doing this.

Just a question: have you tried to play less tables? I think 16 are way too many, especially if your win rate is only 1bb/100. Imho you should try playing 12 tablet and focus more on villain stats, ranges etc.

Guys do you think that calling flop here is standard?
Would have a raise been better?
Villain (368 hh) plays 31/23 with MP open% = 23.
Cbet 53%, although I think this kind of flop will be cbetted more than 53%, so I thought that calling with an over + gutshot was fine.
Am I wrong?
Thank you in advance.

freenachos thank you, I googled something about 'focus sessions' but I found only 'focus groups' so I partially understand your answer.

Kalupso Please tell me how to fix this mental leak.

Pretty sure Stars has NL5 zoom.
I just checked and there's 500+ players playing. That's a lot.
Maybe on Stars.com... I play on Stars.it and the situation is this:

Sorry, I wrote it fast and I lied.
Of course Stars.it has NL5Z, but for some reasons, people play on NL2z and NL10z and nobody plays on NL5z.

Okay, maybe I should write something about my "poker career".
I used to play on Stars (NL5), but I switched to People's Poker after Stars cut the vip system.
Now I play on this site with a 50% rakeback (that's huge compared to Stars).
However, I wasn't the only reg that switched to People's...the pool is full of regs.
I like a lot playing zoom, but for some reasons that I don't know, Stars.it doesn't have NL5z, it has only NL2z (I don't think it takes much sense playing that level) and NL10z (I don't wanna play out of my roll).

Today I wanna introduce you to an issue that I currently have and I'd like to hear some help from you guys that have experimented this problem.
Basically, when I open the lobby in days which aren't fridays / saturdays / sundays, the site is full of regulars: I have always thought that playing reg vs reg is unprofitable, so I quit the lobby and end up not playing poker that day.
Do you guys think this is a mental issue or am I right with my assuptions?
I understand that playing against competent players makes me a better player, but at the same time I think money will be made against fishes.
Thank you in advance.

Really interesting hand.
Just a quick question: did you move up to NL10z recently or have you played this limit before?
I could be wrong with this assumption but I think that often times, when a regular finds a new player (40 hands means that you have no infos on him) he treats the new player as a fish.
For this reason, I comfortably fold river here as it's less likely that he tried to bluff you without any info.

His 4bet is way too large. Pick a note that he made this size with KK.
If I were you, unless I had a specific info (like the one before) I play my AKs like you did.
If we fold AKs we are basically shoving only KK+ and if villain is a "thinking player" he could easily spot that and starts 4betting you lighter.

Especially with the presence of the two fishes, the strategy you should adopt is bet big when you hit, and fold when you don't.
In this case the board isn't wet (rainbow flop) and you should be more inclined to raise to start building the pot.
