Looking to get serious about playing
Hello! My name is Undone/Chris whichever one you want to call me. I have been a member here for about 1 year... I have been an active member for about 2 or 3 months now and really love reading peoples insights into various ways they play poker. TO THE POINT: Recently i have been playing a lot of poker (I played College Baseball and never really had the time to put into poker as i shoudl... now all i do is play golf and poker in my free time away from work and the GF) , i lost my bankroll of 50 dollars 3 times (down 150) then on my final buy in to Full Tilt i scored a few MTT wins and got my BR up to 750 dollars. Over the past few days i decided to take "a shot" and bought into the FTOPS Event #24 (didnt really get much to play with... never got a big stack... just an overal frustrating tournament) i bought into the 30k Guarentee 100 buy in (Lost with AA to AK all in preflop he floped the nut straight and laughed and called me an idiot... very angry) and lastly bought into a .5/1 with 100 and donked off another 100... Well my bankroll is roughly around 450 dollars... and some of my friends are doing very well and making money playing everynight... and i would like to begin a quest to do that... I have a few questions for people who do consistently make money.. By the way i play on http://officialpokerrankings.com/ful...091D2.html?t=2
if you feel this can help anwser the questions
1) Should i stick with playing the same type of tournament every night? For example lets say i am pretty good at playing the $2/180 ppl tournaments... Should i stick to those? Or should i go with the larger $2 and $3 MTTs that I am pretty good at?
2) I have been reading a lot here on theory and read a lot of books... but i know i need to step up my blind v blind play and my late tournament play around the bubble (i tend to get tooooooooo tight and donk of chips on freaking idiotic calls when i should push or just fold). Do you all read anywhere else other than CardsChat that could help me with some theory.
3) I own a MAC so i cannot use the PokerTracker and other various trackers that i have read will really help step up your game.. However i have two or three friends that make serious money who don't use them either and live players cant really use them so i think i will be okay with out it... but should i take notes on people?
4) Is it best to stick to playing one tournament? Or should i try to multitable 3 or 4 tournaments at a time?
These are just some various questions... and if you want to PM me with some additional comments please feel free... i really enjoy talking about poker (while i know i am not the smartest at it but its still enjoyable to me to learn a lot)
Thanks for any of the comments that you give me good or bad..... anything will really help... i am sure there are guides on this site to this but i would like to hear various ppl from all sorts of buy in ranges and their opinions...
