Running bad and losing confidence

I haven't made it to the money yet since yesterday. I placed 5th place thrice yesterday in an 18 player 6 max game. 3 times I was the bubble boy! There was even one game where I came in the final table wherein I was massive, over 12K in chips and the next one to me is around 4K. I was the 1st one to go out. Was I that unlucky? The answer is a combination of yes and no. Yes, There were times wherein I was putting my money in with the best of it and got outdrawn and there were calls that I made wherein I have the second best hand(sometimes dominated, pair vs pair or AQ vs AK, stuffs like that, or even flush vs flush)  and didn't improve or suck out. So What's plan now man??!?! Honestly, I don't know. But one's thing for sure. There's a leak in my game. I need to fix it ASAP. I don't know if my aggression is too much or If I'm too scared to bet a marginal hand which I think is the best. With all the trappers out there including myself, Poker's just more fun! A new challenge for me and I plan to bring my confidence back in playing cards as I am losing it slowly. I reject that idea!

Don't chase the ACE

AK on the hole, you raise then made your usual C-bet on the flop. Somebody repops you then what are you gonna do? I think the move is folding. I sometimes make "ego calls" and end up losing a huge pot with just ace high. Ever heard of a term "no flop, no drop?" That's exactly what I think is a tiny step to success in hold'em. Another thing I realize why I'm losing is that my bluffing tendency is quite high. All in on the river with AIR, then top pair-weak kicker calls me then I'm out or crippled. LOL. Well, sometimes it does work for me though I

Summary for January

Well here it is, My earnings this month. I am quite happy with Pokerstars as I was able to use my "winnings" to pay some bills and well, maybe a little good time. I need to work harder on my game. Money will come eventually if I play the cards right. Next month, I hope I can earn like this again, hopefully. But I want moreeeeeeeee, who doesn't? hahaha
