CC 101 - My 101st post. A letter to the noobs.
I've seen alot of 1000th/5000th posts articles on here and theyre usually really good. So i decided to do a 101st post as a letter to all the noobs here as I am still one myself.
I've never been a part of a forum before. Didnt know what to expect when i came here. Originally I came to learn more about the game of poker, had a decent grasp of the game but didnt realize how little I knew or how far you can take poker strategy
till I came here. So while googling "poker strategy" I came across this forum. Started to read a lot and decided to become a member as there were parts of the forum you couldnt access till you became a member. What i have found is...
There are a lot of real intelligent, experienced people here with really good advice. There are a lot great articles in the "golden archives" that are well written and very thought out. There is a very cool "hand analysis" section where you can feedback on how you played a hand or should have played a hand.
List of Do's and Don'ts.
Do read the Rules & FAQs and the stickies. They help you figure out posting guidelines and poker lingo and abbreviations. This is a good one.
Do read all the golden archives. Lots of real good info there. Then when your done reread them and then do it again.
Do read the whole thread before puttin your .02 in. That way you wont be repeating what someone has already wrote.
Do use the search function. It can help you find the info your looking for.
Don't be offended when someone seems to be a little harsh or short with you. Most of the time its just a miscommunication between you and your computer screen. This especially goes for when you post in the HA(hand analysis) section. The thing is you're puttin yourself on the choping block and you have to be able to handle criticism.
Don't bring an attitude. Ive seen a few people banned here in the short 3 months Ive been a member. It can and does happen. So just be cool.
Don't spam. One liners that dont add to a thread just take up space, its annoying. This also goes for bumpin old threads that are years old.
Don't be a freeroll whore. This one is self explanatory.
So thank you CC for all the help so far. I am hooked on this place. I check it out every day and can usually count on it for a laugh or two. ie. the "is online poker rigged" thread.
feel free to add to the list all you old schoolers.
