      My very first post, hope you all are doing well. Played about 12K hands with the 50 bucks from Pokerstrategy. Using the trial version of Pokertracker atm. Guess I will be asking for a lot of advice/tips here.

      First off, props to you, veriz.
      I'm in the process of watching "No-Limit Beginners Course with veriz - Lesson 1"
      Keep up the good work!

      1. To become a competent player at NL50 one day. They say "Dream big", and yes, NL50SH seems pretty far away from where I'm at now.

      2. After 15K hands with the 50 dollars from PokerStrategy, around break-even point at the moment. I was up around 8 buy-ins 6K hands ago: just can't seem to be disciplined enough to enforce a stop-loss.

      3. VP 25%, PR 12% AND winning (numbers are merely estimates).

      Good job! Homework #1 Done!

      Most of the weakness you wrote can easily be fixed by posting hands (analyzing your session). We will start writing feedback to your play. Usually negative feedback will put you into thinking phase and trying to fix all those leaks. It's almost the same as you lose money, you will remember it more than winning part. By this situation it's gonna be that negative feedback you gonna remember and try to avoid them next time.

      Stop-Loss is really important and which I would recommend even starting to use. You can always remove it if you become better. We have to find a way how to adjust against tilt and it's one of the easiest way.

      Tight style is usually called playing selected hands. Like following the Starting Hand Chart. Aggressive should be also pretty clear that already the word says how you should be playing. But the problem playing aggressively is that you have to watch that you don't play too aggressive. Find good spots, find good targets. About The tight-aggressive strategy you can read in this article: "What is the Big Stack Strategy?"

      Hopefully you will enjoy the Course. Some points earned.
