I know the basics of NLHE. How to improve most effectively?
I have been playing HoldEm for real money
for about 4-5 months now and I have the basics down. i.e. c-bet, basic MTT strategy, microstakes cash game play, etc. I have committed about $200 thus far and have (no surprise) lost it all. I am ready to make my next deposit on Jan 1 and would like to invest some money in game improvement. I would prefer to deposit $50, could do $100.
I have read Sklansky's Tournament Poker book but have had difficulty applying his writings to microstakes MTTs ($5.00 and under buy-in); he writes about Medium (more than $16) stakes and higher.
Should I invest in a HUD? Should I get coached? Read another book? If so, which one? Should I review hand history; if so, what should I look for?
At this point, poker is definitely something that I think could pay in the long run but I do have to take things slowly due to school and work commitments. Feel free to check my stats on Poker Table Ratings, etc. and comment accordingly.
