Hello ! I recently started playing, too. Have only been playing for two weeks with actual cash, started with a $50 no deposit promo + $10 of my own money to unlock the RAI$E promotion there. I'd like to get into freerolls, but it seems that there aren't many on UltimateBet that I can sign up for... bummer...
In the meantime, I take it you are playing NL, right ? I suppose you'd get a lot of play for your dollar (penny ?) with only SnG's. I have not yet tried those, but I hear they are loads of fun. Personally, I am playing $0.02/$0.04 Limit Hold'Em - still learning how to fold, lol, but learning much.
Dunno if this will help, but in the UB software, under Options, you can set the table preferences to put a bright blue F in front of the people who fold. That has personally helped me a great deal, because it makes it easier to see who got out of the pot. That, and I turn on the bunny cam. I love that rabbit. Freakin' awesome. He only appears when everyone folds before the river. I have found it very enlightening to see him reveal the next card that would have been. Very helpful. Good luck on the felt !
