strategy and observation
I recently started playing live poker since casino opened up in my small town. Anyway cash games are high buyin that i don't have money to play. So i started playing tournaments since it's 20$ buyin. It's a small town and people are not interested so much in poker , last night was a freeroll tournament and it had only 30players.
I don't have much experience playing poker , I only played like 32 hours total on pokerstars
ending up loosing all my money and with friends low cash games 5$.
Last tournament was 20$ buyin , first time I'm playing live what's important to me is that i didn't loose first Last night was a 500$ freeroll tournament , out of 30 players I ended up in a final table , and I ended up 7th ..only 4 players are getting payed.
Anyway since I know some things about poker and I know in live plays what's important is bodylanguage and mathematics , I was wondering if you could help me out with these 2. How can i practice my observation skills. And how to practice strategy ?
