Poker stars Day One

Have signed up to poker school, find it difficult to pass the the end test. 7 out of 15 of the basics from having read the school posts today.

I'm now watching the videos with the short end tests. 5 out of 5 and 4 out of 5's much easier.

Think i was going wrong with the hands being shared on the river have found that playing poker i can never tell if the table i'm playing on a table that includes your kicker card to win the pot or that the pot is shared without the kicker card included... does this make sence to anyone?

Time to sleep zzzzzzzzz

PS played well on the play money 1k to 5k then had a shocking hand bad play by me with a follow up "all in" hand losing to an out of nowhere full house Q9 against my AK. Oh well.
