Thanks so much everyone. This stuff is really helpful to me. You'll be glad to hear that I've taken your advice and am concentrating on folding A LOT more.
For my last session of 200 hands my stats are a much better 16.5/10.5.

Got to admit though it was hard work using that fold button but I was determined to be disciplined and it paid off. I worked on playing more aggressively and went all-in twice and the flop was in my favour both times. The problem is, most of the players seem to play either very loose - saw stats of 74/9 on one player who seemed to be winning almost every hand they played - and are incaple of folding at all or extremely tight and will just fold if you bet anything at all pre-flop. Means I got next to nothing for my big pairs like AA.
As I said I tried to play more aggressively, bet and raised more but looking at my 3bet stat I'm wondering if I should be raising even more and I also seem to fold most times when anyone 3bets but this is because I don't feel my hand is strong enough and the odds
not in my favour. Should I be taking more of a risk?
Thanks again for all your help. You guys are amazing!
orangepeeleo - I tried to stick very close to your suggestion. I waivered a few times and played PPs but don't think this was UTG. Now that I'm getting the hang of the fold button, my next step will be to pay more attention to my hand in relation to my position.
MediaBLITZ - Thanks so much for the encouragement. Yes, I did realise once I saw my stats that I was more Loose/Passive than Tight/Aggressive. I hope my new stats show I'm heading towards the right direction! The advice to play suited connectors and A-low hands was from a poker beginners video. Don't worry - I've stopped doing it now.
Arjonius & JOEBOB69 - Yes, I spend a lot of time watching the players when I'm not in the hand and writing notes on each one. I actually really enjoy that part.
