So I recently designed a spreadsheet that keeps track of my cash game results. I have two questions for you:
1) how many hands is a good indicator of my game? Currently around 2k hands, I have been consistently playing winning sessions but I also know that part of it is due to the fact that I've been running good, not too many coolers, various bad beats but I know poker can be more cruel than this.
2) in the spreadsheet, I calculate the winrate for my session, and in another box I have the average of these winrates. However if I, for example, win 100$ in 200 hands in a session, then lose 99$ in one hand in another session, my average winrate becomes negative despite my overall results being positive. Any idea on what I'm doing wrong, formula-wise?

I just got back to poker after a 1-year off time. I mostly played tournaments, and at the stakes I played I was a winning player. However I would like to switch to cash, and I would like to raise my edge.
I am very familiar with basic poker math, which was enough to stay on the winning side of poker at the games I played. But at live cash game I just get outplayed.
I have a cash game poker course, but the level is way too advanced for me. I am looking for something intermediate to start diving into deeper concepts. Any suggestions?

I have been studying and playing poker for a while. I have been winning consistently lately and think it could be a good investment of a part of a low stakes bankroll to get a HUD. Is it time yet? Which HUD could I start with? I would also like it to keep track of my hands and my winnings.
Also I forgot to mention that the main reason why I'm considering this is that I have a lot of time I could invest in poker lately, more than I've had since I picked poker up.

I've been playing for roughly one year and only tournaments and have decided to pick up cash game now. I'd like to focus on my preflop game now and am looking for some charts that are available for free: got any ones in particular to suggest?
Edit: Forgot to mention, the room I play on only has 6-max cash games so I'm looking for that type of ranges.
Second question: I've learnt in tournaments that preflop sizing shouldn't vary, but I see that many players tend to change them. Doesn't that make us exploitable? Unless we balance our range obviously, but then again, won't we end up having to fold more than we win postflop?

UTG limped so it wouldn't have been a 3bet. But let's say villain did raise, why is it a 3bet? Don't we prefer to call and play a playable hand postflop instead of being the aggressor out of position in a bloaded pot?
