Hi burntwaffle88 - wow what a name!! Anyway I only really want to add to what others have said by, (In my opinion), categorising the most important things you need to learn about poker.
1. Stick to Bankroll Management - NO MATTER WHAT!
2. Concentrate on one form of poker, i.e. No-limit Hold Em, Pot Limit Omaha. Although as NLHE seems to be the most popular, therefore it follows the most information about the game is out there, therefore the most learning material.
3. Analyse your
poker sessions and LEARN by them. It is too easy to just say "that was a bad day" or even "Wow what a result" and you don't even understand why it was.
4. Instead of playing, spend some poker time reading some decent poker strategy
books. There are loads out there or on-line, whatever you prefer. I would say however much time you put aside for poker 1/3 of each should be spent learning and not playing.
This is only the start, and if you want to be profitable, you will need to master some, if not all these skills. AND
take my word for it they are skills and luck only counts for about 2% of any poker game
The last thing I will say is that there are many good players on this forum who will be happy to answer any of your questions and I believe a member called SBTniceboard
has started a microstake Skype group which you could join, (easy to find his thread in search box at top of screen). That's enough from me and I could write a book just listing all the different things you need to know, but I won't!! (I can hear the sighs of relief from other members from hear!!)
I look forward to hearing about your successes in the future.............
