2. "Pretty decent at 5-50NL" which really doesn't mean much considering everyone thinks they are good at poker. Do I need to link an Aaron Soto thread as evidence?
On top of all that this seems to be OPs first time really seeking advice and help with poker so its safe to say he is a beginner and suggesting to watch micro stake videos is not really out of line here(Especially when he admits to lacking structure aka fundamentals). Have you read any books OP?
With all that said, I pretty much agree with Matt here and think OP should deposit a small bankroll and start from the bottom and move up when properly rolled because I suspect he might think he is a better player then he actually is, like all poker players! Also watch some videos and post hands here on CC!
Good luck OP!
I have read the following:
Poker that matters by Owen Gaines
Theory of Poker by David sklansky
Poker book of tells
by Mike Caro
Power Holdem strategy by Daniel negreanu
Screw Aaron Soto, he is an idiot. I probably am playing over my head, but it's difficult to know. I have poor tendencies of blowing my cash winnings on tournament donkies.
Any suggestions for multi-tabling? I feel like that's the only way to make decent money in micro stakes. As I stated, that's the only reason I move up, because I have a difficult time playing on more than one table. When I do, I feel I do great at 5nl-50nl but it's tedious and not so rewarding. I suppose it's like any job, I have to deal with the bs before I can have fun in the higher stakes.
I will definitely get a poker tracker of some kind, just so I can know for sure.
I try to educate myself as much as possible but there is so many stinkin' ways to play this damn game that after awhile I feel like I'm at square one not knowing what to do and if I'm even playing correctly. I pretend that it means I'm a balanced player but insecure is a better word.
