And yes, I am one of these n00bs as well, but I am at least in 2nd gear. I know how to fold and do not chase sucker hands like K 5 or suited junk.
I am not really looking to gamble, or make money at this, but I do want to walk into a casino and play Hold'em and see how long I can last.
There's a HUGE difference between play money or facebook zynga and real money
poker....once you play 4nl you will notice it within 5 minutes.....so you will need to adjust from your play money game style....download a starting hand chart for different positions around the table and post in the 'microcrushers thread' for advice and tips....fwiw I started playing on facebook for ages then made the jump to real money...so atleast you have an idea of the rules and hand rankings
etc, which means once you add some more tools you will prob do well in cash games.....poker sites are not illegal in the usa...its a long story but you can't play on the top sites like pokerstars
etc, but there are sites that you can play on that all the US guys on here play on...and you will find them in the player sites section of the forum...I think carbon, bovada
, americas cardroom
, juicy stakes
, black chip poker etc are the main ones...and you can download them via cardschat...gl
