Being somewhat aware of the Poker universe, I've always had a knack for poker yet. . never really initiated myself to learn more than what I currently know about it.
Well actually to be honest I was more occupied with BW and gaming and whatnot so that took up most of my time rather then using that time to learn more about poker.
So now, bored of gaming in general (yes even though SC2 is out, I have no interest whatsoever. I enjoy spectating rather then actually playing it now. My interests and views have shifted dramatically over the past year.

So now I've decided to finally stop wasting my time with useless activities and poker up my life a little. Yes I am aware you can lose more then you win but it's a risk I'm willing to take.

Tonight on this lovely Sunday evening marks my beginnings in Poker. Currently I'm just playing [Play Money] tables while reading up on basic strategies and hands, news within the PS world and other related websites.

Since most members on this forum are from TL (as am I) I'm hoping people around here can jumpstart me and help me out with tips and tricks I should keep in mind/learn?

Would be most appreciated!
I'm going to keep updating a week by week blog from now.

i recommend starting by reading some books.

Harrington on NLHE 1 & 2 covers some tournament basics and concepts.
also, sklansky's NLHE: Theory and Practice opened my mind for a deeper thought into poker.
if you are into cash games i can also highly recommend harringtons new book Harrington on 6max cash games.

these books all helped me out a lot, but i'm still a beginner so you might want to wait for some experienced players to give you some recommendations/advice.

99% of poker knowledge is experience. You can read books, but it takes a long time and a lot of understanding to be able to win consistently. Good luck.

this thread on 2p2 has links to a ton of other useful threads that help you beat the micros.

don't spend too much time at the playmoney tables. You won't learn much useful there since the opposition is just fucking around doing random crap. You're much better off just playing NL2 where your money will last you a long time and people are at least taking it somewhat seriously. I guess playmoney is good to get a basic feel for the game though.

I completely and utterly disagree. Sorry.

I am a degen. Do not believe in any of my advice.

Consider beating nl2/nl5/nl10 like going from D to D+ in iccup. Very easy indeed, but ridicously hard at the begining. Patience and hard work will get u there eventually.
