Poker Newbie

By: VicVegas007 @ 10:22 (EDT) / 467 / Comment ( 0 )
Like the title says I am a poker newbie, been playing for about 3-4 weeks online and never played poker before. My favorite game to play is blackjack but there are no online sites like pokerstars for BJ so I thought i would give it a try. Man, was I lost! Small blind, big blind, flop, turn, river plus many more. My first few games I sucked bad. I need to learn more so off to the net I go. Find some good stuff but nothing to give me a full understanding of the game. Played some more, not a lot of success. Then pokerstars came out with this site and man do I love it! The courses are great for a newbie, easy to understand, teaches you a lot but does not bog you down with unnecessary details. So far I have completed 3 of the 4 courses, but it seems that the more I read the more I have to learn. So if you see me at the table, and I make a bad play I apologize. Hopefully with a lot of practice and this site those mistakes will become fewer and less costly.
