I've tried a few of both, and the online course seem to be best because they tend to get updated. I've recently taken Upswing. It's very good. However, it's not really necessary unless you're going to play higher stakes. I cancelled it because I'm still in micro-stakes, where chaos ensues on the regular, but I plan on re-subscribing once I'm leveled up.
P.S. The course here on CC looks great and it's free.
What do you guys prefer or recommend when it comes to poker study material, online sites (ie run it once and upswing) or books (ie Applications by Matthew Janda)?
I've always enjoyed studying more from books but I'm looking into getting a RIO membership soon. Just wanted to hear your guy's thoughts!
I have thought about RIO also, but not purchased yet. I think RIO is targeting players in mid and high stakes. I'm in the micros online and $1/2 or $1/3 live. Most live tournaments I play are low stakes, except in the WSOP when I took some shots.
I like a mix of online and also books. I have Learn Pro Poker and really enjoy the videos.
