Proper bankroll management with 50$ deposit ?
How to calculate your hourly rate?
Can you take rake into your account somehow ? If you played some pots and pokerstars got rake on those tables , can you get it into your account after you finished playing ?
How do you guys calculate pod odds etc when multitabling? I mean , are you able to calculate pot odds on 3-4 tables instantly when you're multitabling more than that? It just seems hard to do that or??
1, get on youtube and various poker tuition websites, there are loads of free ones out there. Start with the real basics and add more when you understand the simple bits. I really rate the YouTube vids by James Sweeney
2, yes (though tourney might be different) Im a cash player and technically will be making loads of mistakes each session. Though generally my mistakes are not as bad as most people I play against. In short, if your villains make more mistakes than you do, you will win long term.
3, None, srs, everything you need is on the internet for free, save your money and add to your bankroll. imo only book work getting is called The mental game of poker.
4, cash 4nl is fine if you are half decent, 2nl if you are not.
5, I dont, I really wouldnt get hung up on win rates, just focus on making the right plays hand after hand.
6, as per question 5, srs dont waste your time with this. If you want to check your roll at the end of a session then fine, but working out win rates is pretty pointless unless you are a pro and working up super optimal things like most profitable villains or time to play.
As an aside, position is REALLY super important, So try and avoid playing oop that often.
PS, did I mention position is key?
