Joining the forum, let's see how long I stay intrigued
Is that spelled right?
Well anyways, I thought I'd introduce myself and get some opinions on my strategy thus far. I'm a fish. I just started playing consistently a couple weeks ago. Since then I've played about 250-300 hands ($1k) at the casino here in cinci, and another 500 online. Needless to say, my BR is down $1k... if you would even call that a bankroll. I call it "tuition".
After reading a bit online and on the forums here, I've realized that I'm mainly a limper. At the real tables, they were 1/2NL with 50/200 buy in. I always buy in 50, except for one night I decided to play more aggressive and bought in 200 for 20 hands then back in for 150... up to $500 10 hands later then a bad beat bust. Not bad enough to win the promo though aha.
That scared me back down to limping. mainly to just observe and play the hand if I could afford it.
A few questions I have for the world:
-Where do I start?... rather, how do I improve myself as a player (besides from playing)???
-What's an easy way to play in person games. - I actually used an app on my phone on session for pre-flop percentages and nobody seemed to object too much.
--I'm practicing pot-odds, but short stacked they seem to be useless.
are beyond my grasp right now.
--I don't understand half of the lingo/abbreviations
That's all for now, I'm sure I'll think of more stuff that I want to know if anyone wants to answer these and if I don't find my answer searching the forum and the net.
