re: Poker & Seeking advice from fellow CC members
There is never one "right answer" when it comes to poker. You're going to often get different responses even from multiple winning players. Poker is not a black/white game, and people can approach it differently. That said, especially when it comes to fundamentals and working your way up from the bottom, use your common sense. Look for the logic in their responses, look for agreement or consistency in those responses, especially from long term members.
Also, I'll remind you that some people can have a very good grasp of certain aspects of the game and still not be good at "taking their own advice" and executing properly. IOW, they can provide solid advice without necessarily being a winning player. Obviously results help validate a person's advice, my point is simply that you can't just assume someone doesn't know what they're talking about if they can't show you a 45 degree angle graph. Kinda that old adage about "those who can do, those who can't, teach." It's like any other sport, where coaches and trainers are often not top athletes themselves. They have the ability to convey what you need to do based on their wisdom and experience and knowledge, without necessarily being better than you.
Conversely, some very good players absolutely suck at teaching or giving advice.
As was said, part of learning to be a good poker player is seeking input from and observing others, coalescing that input with what you learn from other sources (books, coaches, etc.) and your own experiences and game style to find what works for you.
