Before you should ask questions on this board, I would STRONGLY Recommend that you get your hands on a book on Poker BASICS, and study study study.Any suggestion on different situations from any one of us in this forum will probably just go over your head.
That is my honest suggestion for you to follow.

I remember sitting with my uncles and cousins watching TV and watching Phil Ivey play, and then I started to get interested until I got to school and played with my friends, it happened about 10 years ago, I was 14 years.
I think, that was about 9-10 years ago. I was watching many poker shows on our tv and in one moment i wanted to try to play poker too. PartyPoker was my first poker room and the feelings in that moment was amazing.
I started playing with my friends several years ago just for fun. Then I decided to become a better player and started read a lot and train to become an experienced one. And after this I came to online tournaments
I was never interested in poker until i stumbled upon JCarver (Jason Somerville) stream on Twitch. The game turned out to be pretty interesting, and after some i decided to give it a try on Poker Stars with play money. But playing poker with play money is definitely not the same when real money involved; but then i discovered freeroll tournaments. So far i've been playing the latter for about half a year with not so good results (as i'm too lazy to spend enough time on studying).
A long time 10 years ago I saw how players play poker, I liked the game and I
began to learn how to play, but in the beginning I played free chips and then learned a lot in the poker game and started playing for money, now in my free time I play freerolls and tournaments and in cash games and try to win money!
I started playing poker in a small pub in my country with 8 of my friends, we met every Thursday at 7 pm and we used to play until 1 am. I remember we decided to go to the casino to play some tournaments but we were so bad playing poker that we decided to continue playing between us
I started out playing online at PS, there was a lot of freeroll tournaments by then, more than now, and my father thought me some tips about how to play. Then I started to do the courses on PS web page. Thats it
Well ... a few years ago I was watching ESPN is a sports channel and I see a lot of sports programs ... suddenly they began to broadcast a live poker tournament ... I watched it and it caught my attention so much so that after that day I began to research poker ... and that's where my story began in this fascinating game of poker ...!
My friends and I found out about poker when we were 10-12 years old! Like all children, we played soccer, played Cossacks Robbers, hide and seek, and so on .. But one day we learned from older comrades about the existence of such a game as poker) And she literally captured us, we started playing candies, candy wrappers and much more .. We can say that since childhood we have learned the basics of this wonderful game!
I began playing penny ante 5 card draw and stud with my family and their friends when I was 8 .. they played religiously every Friday night ... we were pretty poor then and it was a great way to have family night, My brother and I got to keep all of our winnings, small as they were but, had to put them in my savings account at the bank : ) ...
My father even made a poker exclusive table that seated ten although it wasn't near as slick as what you see now ... good times and the start of my lifelong journey to learn how to play my favorite game .. you don't see those games often anymore and I eventually graduated to playing many different forms of poker ....the only one I really don't like are the pineapple games ......
I was raised by my Great-grandmother and we were dirt poor. No TV etc. My Great-uncle lived there also. On Saturday nights when I was 12 years old and we played poker for matchsticks. This was in 1958 and I've been learning since.
JUST KILLIN TIME,,,WAITING FOR TIME TO KILL ME...
A relative died and I used it as a way of dealing with the stress and loss. Kinda worked but I don't recommend it as a cure for that sort of thing just happened to coincide and it helped me focus on something else.
