Default everyone has leaks in there game, whats yours ?

The other day I was thinking about some of my leaks, and trying to figure out ways to fix them, and identify new ones. However everyone has leaks, and perhaps this thread could be used to help ppl, plug some holes.
a few of mine are:

1) betting/rasing on every busted draw on the river. I would never give up, if villain check to me on the river and Im sitting there with a busted open-ender or flush draw I never conceided the hand. SOLUTION- simply to stop betting at everyone one of them. Im far more consious of it, and am holding back much more. I was suprsied to realize how many pots I won after checking it. A high is good more often than I thought it would be, which means alot of the time my bluffs were "working" beforehand I actully had the best hand.

2) NOT being able to fold AK on k 3 5-7 boards. I dont know why. when I have AK and flop a pair agaisnt low cards, I always seems to convice myself that Im more likely up against a weaker K than a set and end up getting allin dead against 55. ( allin for 100BB in cash games) even when I get check raied on the flop ( which I call) and get donked into on turn I tell myself " dont tell me, not a set" AS im going all in) HUGE problem- SOLUTION ??????????

3) I can get pretty greedy. for instance if I raise in the CO or Button, get called in the SB and then the BB squezes I almsot always jsut call with AA-KK hoping thr SB will also call and we take a flop 3 handed. I do this because I feel putting in a huge 4 bet, jsut tells them I have AA-KK, but of course I go broke on 2 4 6 boards with AA because of course " theyre drawing" or they have " 77+ its crazy. I need to trim this fat off my game fast. SOlUTION???? put in the 4th bet ?????

These jump out at me from the long list of holes, because Im drawing dead in monstor pots OR pure bluffing rivers at 100% frequency

Anyone else is welcome to post some leaks.

Head asplode.

Fix your grammar leaks before you think about your poker leaks.

Wrong forum.

Just play with 20bbs. This will help a lot more with you being so 'special'.
