I'm also from Brazil.
Do you have other job or do you only play poker?
I think it depends of how much money do you have to invest in poker. If you don't have much money, I would keep studying poker using the free resources, because I think it's possible to beat $1 buy in mtts with basic/intermediary knowledge plus discipline to follow a bankroll management.
I have like 300 reais or more to invest, and all day to study. My strategy was study freestuff, put 10 bucks on 888
, and let's go. I had 10 bullets, and one of them I make 74$, and paid some bills. I made another 10$ deposit, and won 34, 1 week after. Next mounth,10 bucks = 74$ I made it again. And november, i beat the carmanhani freeroll,another 74$. The problem is that I dont make it consistently, and that's because Im bad. I think that the freestuff is good, but is something miss. What did u say about that :
"Okay buddy, here's the straight dope from a straight crusher. Play cash games. You need around $1000 to be rolled for $1 tournaments, whereas you should be able to play 25nl with the same roll. You can achieve your target profit at 10nl or 25nl cash games with substantially less risk than playing tournaments.
Step 1, learn pre-flop. GTOWizard ranges should work fine, you can use it for free daily to practice. Notice how the EVs of 3-bet/call can be similar when facing aggressive opponents. Think about how this changes when your opponents are less aggressive (which is probably/hopefully true in your pool).
Step 2, learn how EV math works, and play BU vs BB, BB vs BTN CO vs BTN BTN vs CO UTG vs BB BB vs UTG in wizard. Do srp then 3bp. Check out their youtube. Get pokertracker4.
Step 3, use EV math to exploit fish ranges using equilab from pokerstrategy.com. This is where most of your winrate is going to come from. Often times the key question you'll ask yourself is "Is his betting range wider than his calling range?" You can be very creative in how you play vs fish.
If you get a sample of say 100k hands
hit me back. Good luck!
Edit: Eventually you'll want to buy a month or two of GTO wizard and go hard studying. It'll pay off."
