This is a discussion on Need some help here! within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; ĦHey! I'm new in this forum so if a commit any mistakes while posting please feel free to correct me.
Well, first of all, I play
I know that is not too much money but where I live you can pay a lunch with that quantity of money (also, I'm a student, so I can't allow myself to lose anything more than my bankroll)
I just play one table at the time cause I wanna be sure to be wining before anything, also, many people say that you need a minimum of 10,000 hands to tell if someone is a Loose or Wining player, but as I mentioned, playing that quantity of hand would take me a lot of time
Everytime I earn some bucks during a lot of hand, I lose them in just a blink of an eye, here are some of my biggest losses:
Thanks a lot to anyone who can respond me

Welcome to CardsChat First of all if you want hands reviewd you should post the hands in the review subformus. And you should choose a thread title that is describing the action in some way.
My advice here would be that you should aways be very careful postflop if there is more then one guy showing interest in the pot. You playd it fine up to your 18BB raise, after that just take a step back and take a look at the raw numbers. Size of the pot: 40BB + 38BB effective (coz u cant play the full 101.5BB) and you have to call 38BB. The pot is ~twice as big and the bet you have to make to play for it. So to break even in this situation u have to win the pot one out of three times. If you think that is the case you should call. In comparison -> if you had the full 101.5BB to pay you had to win the pot much more often for it to be profitable.
This hand is just a bad beat. But if you raise someone on one street and he donks right away the next street you should ask yourself whats going on.
I think this is the first hand you could have gotten away from. Everything is fine preflop. On the flop the guy donks into you. Usually if someone donks big (like here ~potsize) he is afraid that you could check behind if he dosnt bet. If he bets small (<0.5 potsize) it usually means that he hit 2nd pair or something else that is weak. Because of that there a very little "normal" strength hands in his range now. So if you decide to 3-bet you often win the pot right there because villain was weak or he 3bets you meaning that he is strong (min overpair). A "better" player can do the 3-bet with a strong draw aswell.
Don't raise this hand preflop in that situation. If you think someone will raise if you limp aswell just fold it. If you think you can limp and see a cheap flop, do that. The call on the flop is O.K., the check on the turn is also good. The river decision depends on you opponent. The saying goes: If he can call with worse/fold the best hand you should raise. Well he would never fold a flush here but he would prolly call with most twopairs, sets, weaker straights and even Kings. So to be honest I dont kow if a call or a push is better, but if you want to be save try to avoid river shoves if the enemy showed legit strenght. Sometimes you miss some value (but you will see the cards of your opponent and then decide if he had callen a raise w/ worse or folded better). This means over time you will develop a better sense for it. If you just always raise AI if you have a straight, you will eighter not see his cards or prolly tilt if you loose and won't be able to learn much.
The moment you get called on the flop here, you want to see the showdown as cheap as possible. The flop is as dry as it gets. no straightdraws, no flushdraws. Only twopairs (and he prolly never has 72, A2, A7 unless he is a fish), sets and toppairs make sense. Your raise pretty much tells your opponent that you have something like that aswell. AQ is pretty much the worst holding in that scenario.
I hope that'll help a little bit...
