This is a discussion on How much do you spend to study Poker? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hey guys i just want to know that for fun, no metter if its No Limit Holdem, Omaha or Stud or other poker games.
Same I used to buy up all the books. I also bought some software. I had SNGWIZ and Holdem Manager way back when. I havent played for money in over 10 years. I resently got interested in poker again. Im likely to buy a couple more books(Ed Millers 1% and Modern Poker Theory by Micheal Acevedo), not because Ill be playing for money again but just interested in poker theory. I also am considering buying GTO+.

What is invested the most are the teaching hours, they are many hours of study and practice that we cannot measure in economic terms. Thank God today we find a lot of information and online courses and it is not so necessary to buy books
I don't spend nearly enough time studying. Unfortunately there are only so many hours in every day. But I'm making a real effort to improve my game. On average I probably spend 30 - 60 minutes at a time, maybe every second or third day.

Hi friend, I don't spend money on any training programs or books, I sometimes watch poker broadcasts or free poker lessons, but this is when I have free time and I don't really want to run tables! I myself am a newcomer to poker and play not so long ago, for me poker is a game of pleasure and I do not strive to learn quickly but poor quality, I understand that you need to learn gradually and everything comes with experience! I don't have the goal of making poker every day, but sometimes I want to win some money, I like the spirit of rivalry more in poker and for me it's probably a sport more than a way to make a lot of money! If you want to learn poker, then it probably does not depend on how much time you spend on training, I think the main quality of training! I want to wish you good luck in all your endeavors and wish you great victories!
2-3 hours a day for reading a book,viewing new articles on poker topics-a brief summary of what you read. I can't bring myself to conduct a daily analysis of my sessions (I haven't mastered the technique yet.)
Hello friend.I am playing over 10 years poker .Poker is like life...sometimes you are high sometimes you are down, at the start i was a fish ,i couldnot fold monster hands like JJ qq,,,By practice over the months later ,the key is to know when to fold .So you can study and be ok ....every day you learn something new ,as pro said .Enjoy poker !!!!
Personally watch YouTube tutorial videos all the time. Also try to play at 1979 world series of poker and analyze my games. Recently read a book on poker strategies. I'm going to go to Las Vegas soon and win the jackpot.
I spend nothing to learn poker, just as I have spent nothing to learn chess, rummy, and other games. Before the internet, I always turned to a library to get my information, ,but now the internet makes my searching for information way easier. And available 24/7.
play a lot when you can be productive and show your best game, and learn a lot when you are not productive and unable to show your best game. While not the most optimal strategy, it is definitely the best strategy for most people.
I had a student period when I was just studying and not playing poker. Since then, however, I havenít been very concerned with improving my poker game. Which is a big mistake, because learning, analysis is necessary every day.
Yes , after inumerable mathematical calculations , the precise amout has been counted to .............. $0 ( !!!???!!!)
.If I took it so far more seriously up to the point to pay 50$ or 100$ per month or 3 months or whatever so as to learn , in order to play better at JokerStar , that would be one kind of a Joke , the best ....

I would like to devote time for training, but it is sorely lacking. At the moment, it turns out only a couple of tournaments a day to play. That is why I am marking time, because I am not studying. You rarely get to watch streams. I hope that the situation will change a little and I will devote a little time to training.
For me, lots of my "poker information" I get online for free (YT videos, cardschat etc.) and the little money I do put in just buys a few poker books I'm interested in reading.
My bankroll is entirely from cardschat freeroll winnings, so technically all I really put into poker is my time, study and attention. Financially, if we don't count books, I don't think I've put in anything yet.
Granted, I'm only in freerolls and small homegames etc, but so far everything is all "poker money" anyway, so it doesn't financially interfere with my personal life negatively at all...and that is the way it should be
As I'll slowly put more into poker and move up in stakes, we'll see if I can keep my poker bankroll supplied only from my winnings etc.
1st place finish at CardsChat 30 Day Course Freeroll (May 31, 2020). As my first ever CardsChat event, this one will always be special for me.
I recently spent money on a preflop trainer called Preflop+, and so far it's been one of the best investments for me for getting a deeper understanding of marginal push/fold ranges and building combinatorics/on the fly equity calculation skills. If I find myself playing higher stakes I would probably invest in GTO+, DTO and possibly a BBZ subscription.
I've bought a couple of books and pay for HM3, but apart from that, there is so much free content available that still helps my game, I see no reason to sign up to a training site for the foreseeable future.
