I have become afraid to play any hand online, (ex: my AQ almost always runs into an AK, or everyone folds) No profit My KKalways has a douchebag calling with A2 and hitting his A. My AA always had a Magical master who can see my hand calling with 56s....or everyone folds.... So all my hands never get paid off adequately....or lose big....

LOL, same here. I don't loose often with AA but i get no callers. And my KK always meets an A on the board for a big loss or is folded around. My AK.. i'm starting to hate!
OEPS! I'm your huckleberry... thats JUST my game! five hundred.. must be a......peache of a hand....

That was just a bad period, it will end on one day for sure. Be patient with them before they will start to win.

If you find yourself in a position where you are afraid to play a hand, it can be derived from 2 possible issues. 1) You are playing in a game, where the skill level is too high for you to be profitable. 2) You don't have a bankroll large enough to handle losing multiple buyins.   Fearing that you may run into a better hand should never be a concern, because it is bound to happen, and often. If you have a bankroll that is large enough to sustain taking a beat, then you will never be afraid to play your hand the way you should. If you are in a game that is beatable, and you feel confident that you can outplay your opponents, then you will never be afraid to lose. Bankroll is by far the biggest factor in fear. Scared money never wins in the long run. You can' t be afraid to lose. Right now I'm sitting on a banrkoll of 90 buyins for my current level of pot limit omaha high low, and I won't move up to full buyins at the next level (I allow myself to sit with a 60% stack at the higher level from time to time) until I have 60. I never have to worry about losing a buyin or two, because I'm never in jeopardy of losing my entire bankroll. Makes decisions a lot easier when the money doesn't matter.
It's easier to fish if you're the one casting the reel.

Just to clarify.... I keep a roll that large due to the fact that I am generally playing 10 tables at a time.   If you were one tabling, 20 buyins would be adequate. If you play 4 tables or more, I suggest a minimum of 40 buyins for PL or NL games.

    I find early in a tournment its never wise to go all in with AA b/c there is always going to a maniac ready to call you down with some   ridiculous hand he/or she has no business calling with. Instead raise and play accordingly.

See you at the tables and... good luck :)

play it more passive and when you win sometimes in a row than become more agressive
