Hi and thx for your advise!
1) How much time outs can I take?
2) How is it that when I play with players not as good as me I loose or I win by little
3) When I do what can I get a yellow/red card? What do the cards do?
Thanks and I will surely come up with more questions for you to answer

You are only allowed 1 time out per match.
When you play players who are not as good as you you may get a little nervous because of your expectations. Try to relax and play your strokes and game.
I hope you are not aiming to get some yellow and red cards. A yellow card can be given if you misbehave during a match.
In the ITTF regulations it says:
|3.05.02.02||If at any time a player, a coach or another adviser commits a serious offence the umpire shall suspend play and report immediately to the referee; for less serious offences the umpire may, on the first occasion, hold up a yellow card and warn the offender that any further offence is liable to incur penalties.|
and for red cards:
|3.05.02.03||Except as provided in 22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, if a player who has been warned commits a second offence in the same individual match or team match, the umpire shall award 1 point to the offender's opponent and for a further offence he shall award 2 points, each time holding up a yellow and a red card together.|
|3.05.02.07||Except as provided in 188.8.131.52, if a coach or another adviser who has been warned commits a further offence in the same individual match or team match, the umpire shall hold up a red card and send him or her away from the playing area until the end of the team match or, in an individual event, of the individual match.|
|3.05.02.08||The referee shall have power to disqualify a player from a match, an event or a competition for seriously unfair or offensive behaviour, whether reported by the umpire or not; as he or she does so he or she shall hold up a red card.|
