So I've been going insane playing these free holdem websites/Apps. I know how poker is supposed to be played. These websites like replay poker is making me pull my hair out because i wanna think I'm good and know what I'm doing. Ive been studying poker 6+ hours a day. I've read 2 books... Im trying to play ABC poker on these free play poker apps/websites but I'm consistently losing. For example I'm in a tournament i get Pocket Kings in dealer position. i raise 3x BB pre flop flop comes 639 rainbow... I raise around 70% of pot. UTG raises all in I call he hits trips on river as his hole card were 3-7... IM LOSING TO SHIT LIKE THIS AND I DONT UNDERSTAND is it really me or is it the players. As I'm only 17 and cannot play real poker online and i can't play at a casino.....
Someone tell me I'm not wrong... its the free apps.....

So you're playing play chip games and someone played poorly? lol
Btw, not sure what you're upset about, guy shipped it with bottom pair 7 kicker. I would pray to the poker gods and sacrifice chickens if it'd put people at my table that were beating me like that.
Anyway, I actually have experience via a prop bet race to 1,000,000 play money on FTP long ago. Everyone's playing basically all the time, your FE is quite close to actually 0.
Preflop, press big PP's to the max, I'd just jam JJ+ right away and adjust based on calling ranges.
Postflop, I'm looking to make 2pair+ and just ship it in. You'll win a lot this way.
Also, these games have 0 carryover to playing actual games where players are risking their money. The nuts and bolts of how the action goes, like SB acts first, or full house beats a flush are the same, but strategically it's just a whole other world.

Thats also what i was trying to say. how realistic is the carryover. I was actually trying to win the free tournament lol.. its for practice I've only been playing for 3 weeks although i understand the fundamentals very well and the ins and outs of poker. I was near the "money" i was playing it safe.. as soon as i saw the flop texture i was hoping he would call my flop raise with a JQ or so instead of jamming. I've logged in over 160 hours of studying poker within 3weeks of knowing the game.... so i was just wondering thanks for your reply
