This site works!
I thought about which section to put this in and I guess it fits here. I joined this forum 4 or 5 weeks ago and started reading through any post I could find. I haven't posted much because I took so much time looking at how good players view every possible situation. I've never been part of a poker forum
before and quite honestly have never done much studying on the subject such as books and so forth. I knew the rules of the game and figured that was enough. Dead wrong!
Let me tell you a little bit about my poker back story so you know where I'm going with this.
I played for 4 years and always lost. Don't know the exact amount but it was in the thousands. So I figured I just wasn't that good at the game and quit. After a year and a half I got the itch again to play. This was back in November. Again the losing happened. This time about $800. Getting frustrated again I went looking for help and stumbled across this site. Like I said earlier I read the thought process that winning players went through and started to apply them.
I use a pre-paid CC to deposit for online poker and only had $15 bucks left on it. So I put it on UB just so I could play a couple of $2-$5 tournies. Well with my new look at poker(due to this site) I've gone on a pretty good run. In the past 2 weeks since that $15 deposit I've been able to turn that into $3,400. This is not meant to be a brag, but to point out the power of cardschat. There is no doubt in my mind that I would not have done this if I had not joined here.
So the point being to any new people who would be willing to really put in the study time and listen to what these people are trying to tell you. Sorry if this is long, but just thought it need to be said.
Thank You cardschat and all it's members!
