Thanks everyone. No hands yet because I had problems connecting to stars.
As for the goal being NL5, what I mean is putting NL2 behind me completely.
I don't know about "skipping" the low stakes, but I hear you on NL2 probably not teaching me too much. People play blindfolded there, but I figure if I can't consistently beat these players there's no reason to move up.
Regarding books, I don't wanna spend my entire bankroll on one heh. I'll buy HEM though when the trial runs out, for sure.
Ok first hand, really had to fight with my self on this one.
My thoughts: Higher bets on flop/turn, this guy will call anyways.
The check raise on the river threw me for a loop, I think I have him beat here, but he's so loose he could easily call to the river with the jack.
