Full disclosure Iím a
Full disclosure Iím a profitable online cash game grinder, not a tournament player (although Iíve cashed a few free rolls.)
Iím wondering what my best plan is here to skill up. Iím going to try get to some games but as Iím in Northern Ireland itís not legal so I have to go down to Dublin or somewhere else in the UK.
Should I seek out a coach? Any books or online courses anyone would recommend?
I am getting the f'ing goosebumps right now! Like what the hell, I never imagined to see someone getting this PSPC ticket here on CC !! Very glad that you joined in on the forum
Pls Tell more about how you got the ticket? Buddy, you only got here, this is your first post, and already I feel happy for you!
As for how to skill up, please, go through the forum, especially the strategy section, there are also a lot of strategy articles for beginners, novices etc. This is pretty much the best poker forum out there for learning better poker.
From my experience, I became so much better at the game both live and especially online after using this forum! For any questions, you can ask me personally, and I will be more then glad to help in any way I can, other then me, there are moderators for Q&A.
Welcome to CC mate, hope we'll be able to help you win as much as you can and have as much fun as possible during PSPC event
The best way to learn fast is to watch the professionals online. Watch taped broadcasts or streams. The walk you through the thinking process in each hand. If money is no object, then I would pay for one of the online coaching sites like Run it Up.
Some very basic but general tips... Don't forget that its still a poker game and keep playing your A game. Sticking to the fundamentals of solid poker strategy that made you successful as a cash game player can be helpful during the tournament. Be patient! You are playing live and because of that you will be playing less hands per hour. Do your best to stick to your strategy and do not stray from it. Do not act out of turn, wait for players in front of you to fold/call/bet/raise.
WOW Congrats! What now? Go for your dreams! How to play? Remeber still this words when you will be play: "To be a great champion you must believe you are the best. If you're not, pretend you are!" - Muhammad Ali
congratulations on winning this ticket. the most important thing is to play your A game and play each hand in the best possible way. I hope that luck will be on your side and that you will succeed in achieving a good result.
