I feel like I played to conservative and found myself in "Gotta double up" mode because I was card dead. I know it was probably partially due to a lack of confidence in my cards, so what's the best way to get over this? I find many people worry about not being able to let go of a hand, and I think I have the opposite problem.
Also, it probably doesn't help I was knocked out of 2 tournaments when I raised all in preflop with AA's and both times I was beat by people playing low rags and catching sets.
Thx in advance.
sorry to hear about the losses,
I think you would really benifit from watching some solid strategy, theirs a ton of videos on youtube, whatever you feel if more useful to your game,
its always good to watch a consistant winner you might pick up something you haven't been doing, or take on board a different way of playing hands.
The most important thing is dont beat yourself up over it, if your struggling with aggression, make it your goal to get comfortable in spots that you were struggling with.
all players fear a dangerous player, even if you show them your not affraid to get your chips in 3-bet lively players when you get spots,
calling down your strong equity hands -
dont fear missing the board instead look to rep that board and make your opponents fear what you have
''obviously you want to isolate when repping, and have your betting patterns in sync with your possible range
