I am doing my best to win in poker like 4 or more years now without any success and to add on that, poker makes me sad and miserable.
No matter what you do if you don't hit you not winning. And by hitting i mean even the goods to semi-bluff.. and when you semi-bluff well its good to complete some times. So when not hitting a think for 2-3 days, control is lost and you try different things at some spots.. and you loose again.. then you try to get your self together and make no more mistakes and be patient etc.. So you 3bet Akcc bb vs co and flop comes 86Jhh and you are tired again to check fold.. so you check/call and co happens to bet 3 streets.. even on a Ks turn.. 3c river and of course he has the goods.. ALWAYS. and yes i can be a really good calling station after a point.
I have started to believe that I am just stupid and that I cannot understand the game. I was never good with games anyway.
Then I sit down and try to understand myself. YES I am emotional after a bad hand and yes I put a limit to sit out every single hour. Close the client. But it keeps coming in the next session.. no profit at all. getting even .. graph goes up +10bi because I had a good session for 1 day and then for 4 days it destroys me.
Don't know what the fuck is going on.. I like the game and I like the challenge and i am not a quiter.
But I guess am I not clever enough for the game.

Hello Daz !

Villain will call with weaker Jx like QJ KJ TJ and some TK TQ . Would he raise Axdd? I believe it would be an ok move to balance with 99 JJ J9 and maybe 55 he called with. right?
ALSO should we bet QQ?
Should we bet AA KK ? i would answer no.
What should we make though from his tinny bet there???
Would he bet this small with TK? i doubt, or QJ? i doubt again - so should we raise him?
What do you make out of this bet??

dont you agree that even the raise on flop is not that strong with FD? I mean its obvious that we dont have 99 KK QQ- we would have 3bet them pre, and we have more combos of FD there and K9 Q9-which on turn are not that strong any more.

Villain was a reg. on the tight side with stats 15/11/3bet5 / 4b3.% - fold to 3bet 70%.
so this is why i thought he has mostly an Ax and hoped to made him fold.
I agree with reason you gave for K9dd being a bad combo to bluff river.
** I don't agree with betting all of our range on the flop.
we have Tx KK QQ JJ 99 88 lower Ax all of which I wouldn't want to bet.

Villain 3 bets with 66 A6s and all club combos: KQ KJ QJ QT JT Axcc
Since we are a lot ahead of Villains range , only 3 combos of 6's beat us, is this a call or raise??
If he had set of 66 he would at least go bigger --

I believe QJs is a nice hand to call in the BTN. plays nicely on a lot of boards vs V's opening range. We have a lot better hands to 3bet with. \
If though we decide to 3b it, then i would rather cbf with QJhh or dd. Also we have stronger hands in our 3b range to bet there like AA KK QQ ...
V's calling range pre has all 66- QQ , and honestly dont know how we have some 8x.
Maybe with a bigger bet we get him to fold some but dont see how this play is profitable .

Thank you for your reply, but still dont understand why. I believe villain in nl5 , will donk pot bb vs btn there with T7 T8 78 and some FD and maybe TT 88 . Maybe also with some over pairs that he just called. a player that donks pot size dont think is willing to fold vs a weird shove with above range, which he reads as a strong over pair at least... since we are talking for nl5 again. Board is super wet and I dont see how we can get more value in later streets since so many cards can kill action or make our hand second best.
