If so which im almost certain of because of your play preflop, i would recommend learning at a lower stake than nl50, games at nl50 are going to be much tougher than the live games at $1/2 live etc and i guess you will not have the basics down if you are limping in preflop at any regularity (more than 2% probably a leak in your game)
Again not being a douche or wanting to make you feel small, it just seems like the best advice i could give from what i read.
maybe the best advice you could take from this is pretty much NEVER limp in preflop, like EVER, even if you have 76s on the button and want to see a cheap flop... infact, never say you want to see a cheap flop ever again and you will probably have fixed your biggest leak. good luck
edit: disclaimer before someone gets all nit picky: there are times when it is okay to limp in, likely <2% of all spots pre
Actually no, I have played for years off and on, used to be quite successful too before I had to quit for over a year. No offense taken though, we all have leaks in our games and I know I need to get some rust off. After reviewing the hand, I do agree that a raise would have been the best play, but at the same time, one HH doesn't tell you how the table was playing and what my image was.
I do find it interesting that you were convinced I was a noob based on one hand though...
