I posted a query on the forums (along with a poll) to ask some of the more experienced players about which game to really start learning with and I got replies from Hold Em limit, to NLHE, to stud. The poll pretty much recommended that I start with Limit Hold Em (2 to 1), so I started with Al Spath's lessons which I finished, but I also plan to go back and jot down what I feel are going to be key concepts for me.
Well, when done with my study, I decided to enter a single table SNG on-line. As bad as I wanted to play some of the pretty suited gap connectors from early and mid position, I held my ground and played starting hands from position in groups one through four and I only played other group hands when I was in the blinds or I had suited connectors and the pot was very cheap to enter with many opponents.
The result for me was very pleasing because even though I was playing tight (I played less than 10 percent of my hands), I took second in the SNG and I'm definitely going to to continue with all of the limit hold em training courses and videos because oh what a difference a day makes. And after I have really absorbed my training courses and I do well in a few of the bigger tournaments, that's when I'll move onto the next phase of my master plan... bwahahahaha. : )
