Default leaks in your current game??

what do you consider leaks in your current game?

i have one specific one.... i seem to have problems when there's a paired board. seem to discount too much the likelihood of opponent having trips.... and i don't realize the danger of my weak two pair (big blind special) being counterfeited. sometimes can't figure out why opponent has perked up, and it's because he now has two pairs that beat mine.... only other major leaks i can think of is 1) not seeing straight potential on boardl 2) overly excited by low end of straight.

i'm not sure if these are leaks but in tournaments i think i have to think about restealing and calling the occasional raised pot in position (don't overdo either of these though). just think we've all been trained too much that raise means ultra-premium hand.

any responses greatly appreciated!! and the resteal/call raises is meant to be occasionally only.

I noticed many times I make decisions too fast and it ultimately leads to the wrong decision. When I look back on my play for the session and analyze that particular situation again I realise how I could have made the right decision by just thinking about it for a little longer.

One of the leaks I have is when the extra poor players come to the table (NL), I try and push the margins so close that I often veer into poor play. I definitely need to focus on reining it in just a little bit. On the flip side, its a race to get their money, so I want to stay as aggressive in the pursuit as possible without going bad.

The other is calling big bets with overpairs when I've come to the conclusion they aren't good. I don't do it as often as in the past, but it only takes 2 or 3 times a week to put a serious dent in the weekly results.

My leak is that I tend to play pretty fast with big hands and build a pot that I'm priced into just about the time when I figure out I'm probablly no good. I'm priced in anyway so I see it to showdown like a donkey.

Chip away, chip away, chip away, chip away.. making a nice but unspectacular profit. Finally get into a big pot, but soon realize that I'm on the losing end of it, and can't let it go.

I get drunk, I stay up late, I eat badly, I don't exercise.

If I fixed all those problems I'd be killing this limit.
