Brown Paper Packages Tied Up With Strings

These are a few of my favourite things :)

I've been meaning to do this for a while but never got round to it. 

I've spent years trawling the internet for articles, free software etc and so I've compiled a list of links for anyone wanting to improve their game. It's not a huge catalogue but as they say, quality is better than quantity.

the link had to be removed but if you look up "things it took me a while to learn" - tournament play. I really can't praise this article enough. An absolute must read for anyone looking to play tournaments written by an excellent poker analyst, Tony Dunst aka bond18 - Great great article concerning 180 man SnG's by furo from 2+2 - Quality guide to 6 max cash games and it's freeeeeeeeeeeee - This article is about isolating which was a concept and part of my game that I struggled with for a long time. This will certainly help both you and your bankroll.

FREE SOFTWARE - pretty much the big daddy and a must for every poker player. It's a little daunting at first but poker isn't an easy game - if you don't have HM or PT3 then this is an excellent alternative for reviewing entire sessions. It runs using Java so make sure it's up to date on your computer

link had to be removed again but look up "pushbot JITxpert" - absolutely incredible spreadsheet compiled by a member on 2+2, JITxpert. It pretty much covers everything you need for tournament play. Read through the manual which is the link below. A must

the manual which you will need will be there as well - manual

That's pretty much it. Like I said there isn't a lot but it will certainly give you tonnes to think about and plenty of work to do. If you haven't already then I'd also highly recommend the video's posted on the site already. 

Good luck people,
