For beginners I would recommend Pokerstars or full tilt poker. There are plenty of great freerolls and training content. These sites always seem to have lots of traffic so finding a game will not be hard. Taking in account that you are in the required country to play there.

I think pokerstars is the best room to start for their wide varieties of games and even better its tournament entries about little money and also have a mean countless free games

A good way to learn is to join pokerschool at pokerstars.

You will all basic training and recieve different prices while finishing different lessons.

Also you can play the leaderboards with nice monthly prices

If you're just starting out then yea > pokerstars is your best option by far. They have a few different freerolls aswell as some homegames that can definitely help you out.
+1 to raz > check out pokerschoolonline for sure as they have some great promos > bankrollmob is a site that runs 8 $25 freerolls a day on pokerstars too > so definitely check out bankrollmob >as long as you have an account you have access to their freerolls.

There are sites where the play is softer but stars is a the best site out there by a mile. Just ask anyone from the US that can't play there any more how much they miss it.

And then..

What type of games should i be playing?

I am not a totally noobish player, i know the basics but its just where to really start and then grind there..

As for now i am playing on 0,01-0,02 cashtables..

Some days im upp and some days im down.. Done a few misstakes ofc but thats prob pretty obvs but i think im getting better and better..

I play tight but aggresive when i get the change but blinds eat me up on 6table.. Had some crasy unlock on river against couple players, had the best hand but the guy have made the nuts on river and beated me but i guess that happens to everyone?

Yeah, Pokerstars is a good site to start on. Most other sites have less to choose from, and Pokerstars also offers more cheap buy ins.

If you're outside US, PokerStars is your way to go. Poker school online will help you get better as well with great rewards. Also, this forum will help a lot too, including both strategy and bankroll.

Pokerstars is the best for Traffic.
If you want a soft site for cash game. Microgaming (Betsafe) will give you a good chance to build up a bankroll if you play microstakes cash

I would say partypoker or TitanPoker are nice as well. As beginner you dont need super traffic to open 10+ tables at once.
And those freerolls and PokerStars, there is so many players, I would prefer some nice small freerolls.

I say that Pokerstars is the best if you are a beginner. There you have a PokerSchool which can help you to improve your skills. That school has some articles and you have to read them and after you read you have a test (about 15 questions, I don't remember the correct number because I did the school 1 or 2 years ago). When you pass a test you will recive free tickets for tourneys where you can apply your knowledge acquired or you revive bonuses for your deposits. Another good thing at Pokerstars is that they have many tournaments for everybody (I'm talking about freerolls) which can help you to make some dolars easy. I have an account on Fulltilt too, but if I compare Pokerstas and Fulltilt, Pokerstars will win definitely. Anyway, is yours decision where you want to play, but I recomand Pokerstars for all players even if they are new or not.
Good luck in your tourneys!

I would really say that most players should stay away from PokerStars if they don't want just to enjoy easy way of finding games every time of a day. Outside of sheer power of player mass, I can't really see any good reason to play there instead of other sites.

In terms of profit, if you live inside European Union but outside of Spain, Italy etc. regulated markets I would rather play in French sites which have good games and terrible players. Ongame network is small, but has very soft games and MPN (former Microgaming) is OK too.

PokerStars for beginners

My opinion only, that PokerStars is the best site to start with. If you are lucky enough to play there.

USA players are not allowed to play on PS. I presently waiting for them to return to the USA.

Why do I say this: poker stars has many options to chose from. So, the beginner can play many games at many buy ins. In addition, the beginner can start in the low money games (micro games that may fit your BR) and increase the amount of buy ins, as your poker skills increase.

Start low until you are winning consistently. Then, move up to the next level, etc. If you move to the next level and start to lose, move back to the lower lever again until your poker playing skill increase. And, then move on up again.

Also, PokerStars has a good reputation for paying out, also. Which is more that can be said for some of the other sites.

Good luck, and keep on improving your poker skills.
