HUD for a mediocre player?? YES/NO?
I do not use a HUD yet for a few reasons (http://www.cardschat.com/f11/trackin...5/#post1424397
I am working very intensively on my game. 30-40 hours a week min - which may not be possible for long, but I will spend as much time as I can - Reading LOTS of sources. My library of real books has gone from none to ATM 12. Ive read 4, am re-reading one again, and will be working through the rest as I can. I have a plan, set for about a 6-9 month time period, to improve my game where I read, re-read, analyze, play and so on. But playing takes money. Money IS an issue. I was a losing player, now I am a break even, slowly advancing player. My BR was 180, went down to 25, at the 25 point, I was already clued into the fact that I had no clue, started learning, making plans setting goals, now i am up to 70.
Graphically, my 180-25 was strait down, my 25-70 a staggered almost level but slightly upward moving line, I think u get the point. I am improving, but the progress is slow, to be expected I know, but I am solely playing with notes and observations. As money is an issue, and I need to prioritize, should I claw my way up slowly with my mediocre yet ever improving poker skill with out HUD aid, or will the improvement a HUD brings be enough justification to get one?
I of course have another problem and that is I use Windows 2000, and PT3 HEM dont support it. SO I need a new PC. I need the Win 2K, have programs that I cant afford to update, and from XP onward, it will cost$ to use the progams that I use now for free, and I cant not use them, work related stuff. So I need a new PC, b4 I can use HUD, unless anyone know as Win 2K solution. I do have a MAC but is the PC I use for Poker the least. But my main question: HUD for the advanced beginner?
