      Hi everyone, although i managed to get my bankroll up a bit i feel I am still very far away from being a pro.

      So what i would like to ask for are recommendations for:


      - Books (Name THE best or several good books on holdem/SNG)

      - Applications (I heard of HoldemInspector Pro, which are worth buying?)

      - Charts/Tables (I have already a dozen, i would like to have something nice for holdem/SNG where everything is in ONE document if it exists)

      - Suggestions (Would you say "Get a coach!" or recommend to watch tournaments on TV? Let me know your thoughts!)

      Hey MasterKyodai,

      How was your trip to Japan? Did you bring me back some pictures? :P

      First off, watching TV tournaments is definitely not good for your game. There are some good books out there i hear too but i don't read them too often someone else will maybe come along and help out with this :) For improving your mental game though, i highly recommend both "The Poker Mindset" and "The Mental Game of Poker"

      Charts and tables: have you read our strategy articles? there are some pdf files in there with charts for the early, middle and late Sng phases take a look here:

      Sng starting hand charts

      As for applications, i've never heard of HoldemInspector so i can't recommend it, however most people will agree that Holdem manager is the top dog in poker software they offer a 60 day free trial i believe so you can have a good try of it before you commit to buying it, you can find out more about Holdem Manager here:

      Holdem/Omaha Manager

      All the best my friend, shout if you need anything else

      Limit holdem or No-Limit Holdem Books?

      Good Books for SNG:
      Collin Moshman's SNG Strategy
      Phil Shaw's Secret of SNG

      Get SNGwiz, it's a must.
      ICM trainer and ICM lite if you didn't already get it.
      You can also get SNG End Game Tools if you don't want to spend $100 on SNGwiz.

      Holdem manager is da Nuts!

      Join the coaching sessions here!

      Don't think you need 1 on 1 coaching right now...
      Maybe post your graph, ROI stats etc.

      Thanks for the suggestions, much appreciated! Gonna look into these.

      I am still sorting photos from the trip to Japan, but here's a short teaser vid of my visit to the goddess of mercy:

      And yes i got myself a fiancee. =) :heart:

      Well i just had a damn good ring, solid gold, with a big heart shaped diamond and 8 smaller diamonds. Unfortunately there are no spade shaped diamonds, lol. But in the end it was like a pair of aces, so i just went all-in, kneeled down and asked her and she said "yes". So i won that hand. =)
