re: Poker & You guys are just too good...
1) You have to put in the work to improve. It is not gonna happen spontaneously.
* When you don't understand words best is to just put "poker glossary
" into Google or just search for expressions you don't know - it is quick and you always get a correct answer.
2) Hand history forum is where it is at Do not accept answers like "bet, bet, push" or "raise preflop, bet/fold turn" - ALWAYS ask for explanations.*
* This is a real easy way to sift through the crap - just ignore all answers that are not elaborated, they are useless unless you understand the logic.
3) Put in your signature "I am a total beginner" and you just solved all issues about looking stupid I am not kidding, everybody was a beginner once upon a time (I still am BTW, but have improved A LOT in just 4 months or so of playing).
4) Play as much as you can, but ONE table only and observe the opponents. Analyze your own play and post on the HH forum those hands that you can't figure out on your own. Don't be afraid to be the devil's advocate or sorts and present an opposite opinion to what the majority says - learning is an interactive process, as I said under 1) you have to WORK to learn.
5) After you get your answers in HH forum, USE the new knowledge in your game and see how it works. If it doesn't, come back to HH forum etc.
P.S. I think people here are generally great. Seriously. Everybody can have a bad day and be a bit snappy but overall they are polite and I am very happy to be here.
P.P.S. I know CAPS = shouting but I wanted to emphasize some things. Sorry guys.
