      In 2 days i have close to 3x the starting $50 playing at the 0.05/0.10NL tables, and i am starting to move my stacks up to the 0.10/0.15NL. I play somewhat 2-4 tables at the time. I have had success at tournaments at Titan poker before, but i really need to improve my cash games. So i can play bigger touneys on the right side of the Bankroll management. Therefor I wonder if any1 have any ideas on how to improve my game reaching the higher levels? Just to add i play as much as i can by the odds(95% of the time)

      Hi Julyof4th,

      Well the best way to improve your game (as stated by some of our Black members) is to do 3 things:

      #1) Post your hands. Feedback on posted hands is very helpful for finding leaks and increasing the value you get from hands
      #2) Watching videos. We have a large amount of videos that illustrate good play for the different levels
      #3) Read literature. Especially in the beginning you should spend almost as much time reading strategy literature as you spend playing.

      This way moving up in the limits should pose no problems.

      Best regards,
      SoyCD

      Thanks for the quick reply.
      I have already read Ace on the river and Sklansky on hold'em several times. Not to forget TJ cloutier on tournaments. And further i have a kinda big selction of titles to go through.

      Though i must admitt i am looking forward to watch videos. cause the poker plays tv shows are just the action, and not very good lessons.

      Woulda been great to challenge the coaches in time when i have improved my bankroll.

      And further, you post big tournament winners, how profittable does one have to be at the cash games to be worthy of a comment? ;)

      Isn't Ace on the river for more advanced players?

      well.. yes you do know how to play poker, if thats what you ask..
      I do know how to play, and my goal is to come as close to perfection as possible. But still its far to go from advanced to pro, and if you want to be the best, i am of the opinion that 1 have to have something to strive after.

      so any ideas on how i could had more in the pot on this hand?
