maybe moving up a limit would help eliminate those kinds of players, and help dave's playing style out - I played with IrishDave in todays freeroll and think he is experienced enough that he would do better at a higher limit
just my 2c
I agree. Poker is about knowledge first but like any game, it is also about confidence. I would recommend a $25.00 NL game for Dave where he could take in $10-15 if that is his limit and be confident that he would be rid of most of the calling stations.
I wouldn't even consider playing the micro games, not because I am a good player. My reason is because a lot of the players (obviously not all) there are not just bad players, they are woeful. You end up playing a game not unfamilliar to my mother....bingo and this does nothing to help you develop your game.
$1-$2 tourneys can also be a good way of getting good poker for your $.
Whatever you do Dave, don't give up on your beliefs about how to play the game well....what you have run into in the last little while are not reflective of a good game of poker....and there are plenty of good games out there mate!
