Default What should I do?

Hey everybody,

I found this site on the a Google Search and it seems that are very very useful for what I want! Learn poker and win some dollars!

I found some articles and vidios, I will start reading that articles and watching vidios. I already read one time Getting Started In Holdem by Ed Miller and I loved that book, but I will read it again to get better some concepts like Pot Odds Implied etc.

But I have 2 questions,
1. Should I download first vidio and start watching it? The first vidio is about 200NL and it seems a big limit for me ... so I want to know if i only should see 20NL vidios or all vidios following the order that they are displayed on site!

2. I deposited 150 dollars and have it on MoneyBookers, what is the site that I should stary playing? I-m asking for a site that supports PokerTracker, have micro limits like 0.01/0.02NL or 0.02/0.05NL, have a lot of fish and be able to me datamining! (I-m not intrested on PokerStars)

I hope that this site help me to improve my game and win some dollars.

PS - My native language isnt English so its normal that what I say sometimes doesnt make sense!

Thank you and good luck for all at tables

First of all, welcome to the site. You have already taken a step in the right direction. As far as which vids to watch, If you are a current breakeven/losing player I would highly recommend Trikkur's latest video which is NL20 Here

As for your other questions, Stars is the only place I can think that spreads .01/.02 or .02/.05 so even fi you really don't want to play there, I'd still recommend it.

PartyPoker offers 0.02/0.04 and I think, the players are very crappy (a friend started there, and half the table is running 50/7/1 or 7/1/5), but don't forget to take part in the twoplustwo bonus programm, where you get 5 books for free, if you want to play there.

I think, that all videos can be helpful, but watch the micro-stakes videos first, so you don't get too aggro, cause the best strategy on 2c/4c = quite tight, but very strong value betting!

Well, I think that the best option is take all of my money and put it on my bank again!
I know that im playing with only 15 BI and I should play 0.02/0.05NL but to play with $10 at 0.02/0.05NL table I prefer play with $10 at 0.05/0.10NL table

I know that poker is not only luck, but losing $25 at hour is a big damage on my bankroll

I will post another hand
I called preflop because the guy that gone allin lose a big pot in last hand and I think that TT is very favorable against other hands

PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.10 BB (6 handed) Poker-Stars Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com (Format: FlopTurnRiver)

Button ($11.20)
SB ($13.25)
BB ($10)
Hero ($10)
MP ($10)
CO ($13.05)

Preflop: Hero is UTG with J, K.
Hero raises to $0.3, 3 folds, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20.

Flop: ($0.90) T, 2, Q (3 players)
SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.7, SB calls $0.70, BB folds.

Turn: ($2.30) K (2 players)
SB bets $2, Hero calls $2.

River: ($6.30) K (2 players)
SB bets $7, Hero calls $7 (All-In).

Final Pot: $20.30
At this stage, you should be folding KJ from this position preflop. Just fold it and move on to the next hand. Once you get to the flop, not much else you can do and I like the way you played it. Reload and move on.

DON'T EVER MIN-RERAISE!. Make your opponents pay for their mistakes instead of making their call correct by giving them huge odds to do so. Other than that, nothing wrong here as well.

Well, I would say: Do not ever min-3bet a full stack preflop with a monster hand
