Default Am i too much of a Gambler ?

I ve won some serious Money (having no job and all evry 100 eur is good to have).

I m pretty much "crushing" NL50, but with the same playing style i m getting much worse results on NL100.

I either sit a whole evening calling raises and try to catch someone bluffing into me, or if i get good cards i play them as i learned here, and a bit better at times, i just cant see me doing these continuation bets with A-Face if i dont hit. If i get Action there i just foldem for good.

Tonight i m BB getting Aces. UTG raises (min raise) to 1.
The whole fricken table maniacally hits call.
My options being :
reraise and get a lot more callers
call and try a pot bet or over bet to force ppl out
or go all in on the raiser.

since that worked out good a lot of times, i do so.
guy calls with KTs, sure enough the river hits him.

tough luck

With KK i reraise someone, all fold but one other guy in the queue.
flop is unsorted 7 high ( 2 7 4) and as he bets 11 (lol) i guess he either has 72, an over pair or is on a straight draw.
- fold
- reraise (5 bucks left in his stack)
- go all in.

I send a Message and reraise him, he goes all in.
78, river 7

tough luck

heck KK again.

I raise typical 4 BBs, 1 caller.
3 3 J , i bet the pot+some more, he all-ins with over 30 for the Jack.
he has my King as his Kicker and he should be dead.
If that fricken Turn wasnt his Jack

tough luck.

so here i m crying for sympathy, and maybe some pat on the back / pulling ears.

should i just stick with 25c tables and go up to 50c as i build up more ego and can withstand these BS hands (+ some more bankroll for added *laughfactor, hey it s only 1/10th other then 1/5th like i lost now*) ?

i feel i play it right and just get damn unlucky and cant stand this idiocy that makes my money at the lower tables, but denies me winning at 1 level up...

words of wisdom, torture rack, shut up 72 ?

C'mon man. You've been around enough to know that this is part of the game. Yea it sucks, but its how you make money. You can always stop playing if it bothers you so much. Good luck.
