I need to narrow down where to get educated on the important things in poker.
I am taking poker seriously again, I want to rebuild my foundation from the ground up. There are dozens of recommended books, I am not sure how many are still recommended, and I often read that online sites like deucescracked can actually be more valuable.
What I would like to learn, are the essentials for online and live holdem. If someone can point me in the right direction that would help, I have seen in several of the books they focus on strategies that become outdated.
I need to review the math, the pot odds
, how to play the odds, how to properly take notes on players, what to look for to take notes, bankroll management etc. I have very spotty education in these areas and would like to go through it thoroughly before I get back into the game. I have no problem grabbing some books, but the more I research which books are good, the more I see people saying to steer clear of the books because the strategies don't work anymore.
Any help is appreciated.
