Here is some basic solid advise for you if you are new:
1. Take time to learn about the game through reading what successful people have written. There is a ton of stuff right here on Cardschat. One of the first subjects should be bankroll management.
Others, in no particular order are:
* equity - the chance of you cards winning the hand
* pot odds
- the cost of the risk vs the reward
* position play - how to play certain hands in certain places at the table
* Identifying villain playing styles
Find and read stuff about these things.
2. You must also actually play to reinforce what you learn through research. You'll follow BRM strategies to limit the effect of variance (times when the lowest percentages of occurrence happens). For the vast majority of new players this also limits the "cost" of learning solid poker skills. Because of that I also suggest you play in as many freerolls as time allows you. Even if your bankroll stays steady. You need that experience. Just remember that only when the donks get weeded out does it become more like actual micro-stakes poker. If you can't cash in about 1 out of a dozen or so FR's then you need to continue to play them for the experience.
So, with $100, If I were you I would only play $1 MTT's and $2 SNG's and all the freerolls possible.
