I wish you had 99 so it would be great or deeper learning in Poker. I was there at your point too, whatever explanation on a hand rankings
or discuss about poker game
statics, you will assumingly understand but definitely not all. My best advice to you Sir, buy 1 deck of card and find a person or friends that knows about the poker well..And he will explain to you one by one.. especially your concern about your hand 55 against A3, why he won.. Statical explanation about the hand is not enough unless you will play and play more esp. in live games you can do talking or asking next player to you and surely they will entertain you. But play and play more just to learn basic hand rankings and settings will cost you a lot. Like me, if I remember I already play live tournaments and main events online for a couple months, I win big, I lost big, but still I dont know all about hand rankings Example, Just later on I found out that I hold KK, and the board was K,3,3 and one player goes All in and I snap call 2nd nuts on the flop. Now heads up he's card going to be a showdown was A,J, then turn 3, river 3. I was too shock why I dont win that hand and makes me start to feel something goes wrong around. Thats why take my advice first before you play more and more to reduce the risk.
