This is a discussion on Poker Advice anyone? within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Can someone give me some poker advice?
I've read alot about poker and I think I'm playing right, I'm just sure there is more I can
I have tried reading and even watching videos on YouTube. I have talked a couple people that does coaching and they play very good online poker. I'm just trying to figure out which one person I want to go with has a coach.
Save your money and learn from someone who isn't playing NL200+ while you are starting at NL2.
Ask for a free half an hour preview from a guy who is winning at NL20 or something. He still can relate to your stakes and won't charge as much as someone playing way higher.
Ask him about a plan, what and how he is gonna teach you, his experience.
Get close with another student of him, work in a pair.
You will get a huge boost even after 1 session, so don't rush. Take a lesson, implement all the knowledge till it's automatic, then take another lesson. With each subsequent training session efficiency is declining.
Play a lot. Be ready to invest a lot of hours daily.
Hope this helps
My advice would be forget gto and balancing. Observe tables and try to exploit in rather obvious way i.e. over cbets - you 3b or float a lot, opps are tight - you steal more. nits are raising - you gtfo out of hand with wider range then usual. etc. Good Luck
I have to disagree with that. If you are new to the game and playing 2NL, simply practicing will benefit you more than reading books or watching videos. You should do SOME study of course, but most of your time should be spend at the tables.
