what games have you been playing and for what level of money. Are playing no limit ring games? Stay away from these. You need to play something soft. With micro limits. Some sit and gos. Some Multi Table Tournaments. Full Tilt has one for $1.25 with 90 seats and they give you a double stack of $3000 plus the money starts at the top 20% (18). Play 20 or 30 of these. Play some free rolls. Get used to seeing a lot of cards. A lot of different type of players. BoDog has a 10 SNG for 2.20 called a beginners event where 5 people come in the money. I have yet to come in under 3rd.
has micro tourneys for 10, 25, 50, cents. THey also have a sit and go for 10 cents for 360.
THis is the way I started. I started coming in the money in some freerolls
at the same time reading and asking players better then me what to do.
Never give up. Dont blame donkeys. We all suck out. Its part of the game. Observe like the other posters have said. Experiment. THe worse you can do is lose.
Get Hand Histories of your game and look at where your weaknesses are. Eventually it all comes together. Nothing comes easy.
