I'm going to use WoW terminology, but which do you guys recommend I "tech" up to?

Grinder or Heads-Up play or tourney?

I currently have a 13.3" LED on my laptop which is limiting growth in multi-table play. Aside from equipment, what should I be focusing on? Any tips to improve attention?

Should I play a few select hands with aggressive raising or large selection of hands (playing for low straight/flush/etc) with passive raises? Or somewhere in between?

I don't know. Please help. Family needs help, need to rescue from ninjas. (j/k)

i recommend learning full ring, i heard you can cbet and take it down and that can win you money up till 1000nl.

What's this full ring system you speak of?
So multi tables (4), playing with large selection of hands (pairs/flush/etc) with passive raises is the way to go?

multitable large selection with passive raises is the way to go

You should read this article. It's very old, but it'll give you a bit of a sense as to what to do.

Thanks, devon, it's a very good read so far.
It is very similar to the post by Liquid`meat.

Oh forgot to mention, I already am doing them since starting.

Full ring cash grind is like LFD normals - not hard, not many wipes, low stress etc.

Tourneys are like non-rated BGs - sometimes it's awesome when you get a good team who defends nodes and follows the strategy but often it's bots, afk-ers, road fighting tards, HK tunnel vision farmers, "let them win" ...

HU cash is competitive arena - occasionally you'll get nubs, but way more often you'll get geared to the teeth gladiator mages and battlemaster rogues

Haha, you're right, that's old school... Circa 2005. Because the skill tree closely resembled the tech tree of RTS/strategy games.

Or maybe it's just me and my friends (who have long quit) who use the term.

I've played WoW for years no one ever uses "tech up." Also wtf is a passive raise vs aggressive raise???

Anyways, I'm not sure what your definition of what "grinder" means, but you can definitely grind out money playing heads up and tournaments. I assume you think of it as like a mass multi tabler who's doing 6 max or full ring right? Any of these three avenues can be profitable, you just have to find out what you are good at or what you prefer.

The only hands a nit balances in his range are the nuts, the second nuts, and the third nuts.

id recommend picking an aspect of the game that intrigues you most or where you think you are most advanced and get a coach

probably best to start with low stakes full ring. focus on playing tight, learning correct bet sizing and learning the importance of position. try to make a friend or two a few levels above you that can help you out a lot on msn. can also post hands here
