Ok, this is probably about half of my total hands since I first started playing for real money
(that is, I bought the software about halfway through my poker "career").
You might want to say, um, dude it looks like you have no idea what you are doing. That's pretty much the truth.
I played thousands of hands with fake money live and against the 'puter before I started with real $. I have read some books, articles etc. So much of it was and remains over my head. I have watched God only knows how many hands on TV (it seems like the guys on HSP don't seem to have any rules whatsoever with regards to starting hands ?????)
I have never played live. My confidence is too low right now to work up the nerve to sit at a table. I think I would screw things up, embarass myself and quite possibly piss a few people off. Don't know how to get over that other than just saying screw it and go sit down. I could probably get to a table at a local casino within 45 minutes, so it's close enough to be practical.
Know what I need? Some kind of program that walks you through hands and explains pot and implied odds
as you go. Something step by step that goes through each hand and shows how to calculate the odds and how they relate specifically to a given hand.
To anyone that will take a few minutes to provide criticism and advice, I thank you sincerely and I owe you a beer or three.
The truth hurts and here it is:
