I didn't watch all of those hands TBH but I've had private messages with you and you are convinced the RNG is not straight and it's a conspiracy against you. Even though I haven't watched, I'm sure you've made a few mistakes in those hands above.

There is nothing wrong with the RNG, it's the players you play against that wins you money. I'm quite happy getting my chips in as an 80% favourite full well with the knowledge I will lose 1 time in 5. It happens. Think of it this way. 4 times you will win $5 from your opponents = $20 and 1 time you will lose $5. Net gain is $15.

You've come to the right place. You're probably spewing chips in other spots which is giving you this frustration. Make sure you take the quizzes and watch the videos.

If you're losing consistently then drop stakes. I'm not a cash player so can't help you as much but I do understand that bad beats happen and the reason that keeps poor players in the game.
