Hello,
so, this is my first post here... + newbie(fish) in poker.
I have been playing poker for around 1 month and I have to say everyday I get more obsessed with it and love it.
I am still playing with virtual money and do not think to play with real money unless I learn some skills and develop myself through a year.

So, the question is: where should a newbie learn, develop his skills apart from practicing a lot ( I know practice! practice! practice! is the key for a success) But beside that what should I do? read a lot of books ( i'm good at reading ) or watch poker TV, or what?

If you have anything to suggest, how I can get most out of this sport ( or some call gambling, which I do not think so), please reply to this thread.. Thanks

Hi,
My colleagues I think answered your question. Just wanted to add some thoughts about moving from play money to real money game that might be useful for you later on.

Play money is good to start with. You can learn the basics of how to manage your bankroll and get some experience with downswings and upswings. Try to grind to the highest play money stakes. The play there is still not so good as at the lowest real money stakes, but if you cannot beat these your chances to be a winning player at real money games is not that big.
While doing this you can try to play freerolls (Hubbles freeroll or Open Skill League). Its a good practice and you can even get lucky and win few bucks.

Myself I moved seriously to real money games when I made 10M+ play money and started with 20 dollars bankroll from freerolls.

This approach can take very long though. But if your main goal is to play poker and not to win money fast (mean gamble) it does not matter.

But if you get bored by the play money donk play, you can deposit 20 dollars and try the lowest stakes of real money tables. If you start winning. Great. If you start losing. Stop and try to find out why.
You can also just open a table and watch the people playing. If you are able to identify there are some bad players at the table that you can beat and the seat near to the left of them opens. Take it and play them when you have a hand and a position on them (do not forget about the players still behind you ).

2NL tables, 25 cent 45 man tournaments are good to start to build your bankroll from 20 dollars.
There is also 10 cent buy in tournament every day with no fee and 50 dollars added to the prize pool.
No fee and 50 dollars added means its enough to be better than your opponents to be a winning player.
At games with rake, fee and no dollars added you have to be much more better because you have to beat your opponents more often to win the fee and rake too.

Of course you do not have to take it so seriously as well. If you can afford it, you can take it easy as a paid entertainment and deposit such a small amount time to time that you can afford and when you lose it you do not mind because it was still worth the fun .

At the main lobby you can set your deposit limits at Request/Responsible Gaming to prevent yourself from doing stupid things when in a bad mood .

If you have any questions feel free to send me a message.

Good Luck
