1. At micros go: youtube/twitch and blackrain79. They will give you good basic knowledge and you can build from there
2. soft - any HUD is good HEM2 or PT4 do have their differences but as I see it's the metter of preference than some huge difference. I use PT4 and am happy. Use someequilator for ranges (exmp. Equilab - it's free,flopzilla i better obv. but it cost $$$), just play around to see how you 88 stands against KQs
3. Dont watch top pros either Dwan/Nergeanu/Ivey... or watch but dont try to play like them. You are(and your ops respectfully) are not at that level so not point in bluffing
2Ko from UTG for 3 streets just beacuse Moneymaker/JamieStaples did that, you will get there (maybe) at some point but not now, now it's just fishy play and you are throwing away money at people... or do that, but PM me or call me up so I can be one of them =). Stay TAG/NIT play ABC or almost ABC and you BR will grow.
