re: Poker & Learning "Winning Poker"? serious help wanted
From my read of your essay, I'd say there is no minimum br that will serve you. You are too impulsive.
You will need to abandon all of your preconceived notions of the game and start fresh. It is not easy, you may fail, but unless you start fresh, your existing baggage will weigh you down and sink you.
And as weird as this may sound, you need to learn the patience that is taught and learned via freerolls
and play money. The good thing there is it doesn't cost much, other than time, but you won't go broke relearning the game.
Turbo's and super turbo's eh? Highly suggests you are impatient and in a hurry.
I may be the only person here who will suggest the Play Money games, but in order to be successful at Play Money Poker one must have the fundamentals down tight.
Personally I set myself a goal of 1 million Play Chips before I deposited any real money
. Another post around here suggests some other guy set his goal at 100 million playchips, and he still isn't sure. I punked out and deposited when I got to 900,000 play chips, and have been above even for a long time, but still wonder if that original goal might not have served me a tad better.
If you look at online poker, or even live poker as some get rich quick scheme, you got some seriously ugly surprises coming your way.
