re: Poker & learning order
Gday, I too have played both Poker and Guitar for over 20 years, id like to think im good at both, but, i havent made much money on either, yet. I cant do the gig scene anymore because of family commitments and physical issues as well, so there wont be anymore money coming from gigs.
Poker, unlike the guitar, can be learnt, practiced and mastered all-in-one. With this is I mean, you grad a chair, and put all the fudamentals of poker to work. These were so nicely pointed out by http://www.cardschat.com/members/double-a/
With the guitar though, you have learning/practice sessions by yourself, or with a tutor, then its off to a jam session, and thats all before the main event, which also has a rehearsal, and sound checks.
So what im basically tring to say is that as soon as you sit down at a poker table you are having to put all these things into place at the same time, so just by following the basic methods of poker, which DOUBLE A has tapped on, it will all evolve within itself.
