re: Poker & Quickest way to move up
The quickest way to move up is to find your best game and stick to it. Easier said than done. MTT varience is sick but MTTs/MT SNGs are my game. I'm horrible at cash. When I'm on a good run cashing and making a fair few final tables I find myself thinking "this is easy, I'm gonna make loads of money out of this".
Not exactly sure what happens but before long I come crashing down and don't make a final table for a long stretch and lose most or all of what I had won. I think it's a combination of things that cause this:
- You don't play your best game all the time.
- You run bad
- Not stealing enough pots or your steal attempts are unsuccessful crippling your stack
I'm sure I've missed some key reasons but that's all I got for now. Back to your question, there is no easy way in poker. Finding what you're best at is very hard to do and I can imagine alot of players don't even know what their best game is. Also remember that most poker players will never be profitable. I think that only ~10% of players actually make money at this game! Good Luck.
