I am playing by the strict BR management that we have posted on here a couple times. I have built up (this will be the third time) enough money to get to the .25/.50 level...however, I seem to lose it back and have to drop back down and then build back up. Despite my ability to win at the .10/.25 level there is obviously some issue I am having when I move up. The first time around it was a little bit of the "afraid to bet". However, I think I have gotten past this the last two times. However, I still can't manage to win. I have noticed the big hands I lose are one of two types. KK v AA (happened three time yesterday) which is something I don't really think I can do something about. The other type is when I will raise preflop (3x bb) in position with a premium hand and get called by the small or big blind. The flop will come either crap of two crap and hit one of my cards. I tend to lose a lot with this from two scenarios. 1. my O flops two pair or 2. I will have KQ flop will come Qxx and my O will have AQ. I think I tend to underbet preflop and the flop but not sure. I know you can't really see my play but was wondering if anyone else had problems when moving up to this level. I have really tightened my play and tried to play premium hands. I don't really limp anymore. I think I need to learn a little better how to bet the flop harder. Not sure what else...any thoughts or ideas?
