re: Poker & Cardrunners question, any comments would be appreciated
lol well CR (along with Stox, DC, and a few others) have high stakes players (think 5knl+) recording videos with their thoughts, most geared towards the members (so they'll make videos down at 25nl, 50nl, but mostly the 100-600nl range). How much of that can you find on your own? Sure you could figure it out on your own. Or you could cut a long part of the process out. Obviously subscribing to a site only does what you're willing to work for. But I belong to Stox and I know a few others do and it's definitely worth it. I wouldn't do it until you're at least playing 50nl or so and preferably 6max (because for some reason those sites don't think FR is real poker ). But think of it this way, at 50nl $500/year is less than a buy-in a month, and if it helps you move up faster it becomes even less than that. So yes I think it's worth it, but only for the right people. First off you have to be motivated to watch the videos and improve, and second of all most sites don't teach the very basics. If you're struggling to beat 10nl, people at CC will probably help you much more than a site like CR. But if you're stuck and could use some help playing 100 or 200nl, then it's definitely worth it imo. Just my 2 cents.
