I've been playing online poker(ACR) for about 3 weeks and I keep finding myself doing well for a few hours and then eventually I go on a big losing run where I deplete my bankroll
I'm not playing with anything significant so the losses arent a big deal financially, its just like $25 when I get paid. I look at it as more entertainment than anything, but id still like to improve my game.
I prefer to raise my usual range when no one had already entered the pot. If someone raises before me depending on how tight they've been and how many left to act I'll Either 3-Bet or fold

re: Poker & Needing advice to improve game
So I am in a similar situation, I've been playing and studying for 2 weeks now, but only with play money.
I am struggling to understand the basics, but all the odds and frequences and calculations keep messing with my head.
Do you have any recommandation, such as a book / blog / website / youtube channel that helped improve your game in the beggining?

For online play, I would recommend the following books:
Small Stakes No Limit Holdem by Miller. This book covers the basics of a 6 max cash game.
Mastering small stakes no limit holdem by Little. Book heavely covers ranges in different situations.
The Myth of Poker Talent by Fitzgerald. Book covers how to use the analysis tools available for online players.

Study about range is table positions .. This will help you to have a planning! without planning it is difficult for you to succeed. Save the games you've played and review each action that has taken place and seek advice here on how you could have played such moves.
The advice is to study and play to make volume 3 weeks is little to tell if your game is wrong or right.
