      Got a free $10 PartyPoker bonus ~ requires 60 points to clear it
      Bankroll currently at $34 and 41% bonus cleared

      Problem is I have been dabbling in a bit of all the games and came to the conclusion that I wanted to learn one game and strategy and master it to play profitable poker for once in my loooooong 2 or so years of playing.

      My question to you is what should I try to learn first considering my bankroll and can you link me the material? (I'm lazy) :f_biggrin:

      So incase you hadn't gathered I'm a shit player, a losing player, a donk, a fish whatever you want to call me lol but I'm trying to change that and relearn the game the right way any advice welcomed and appreciated.

      much love :f_love: Joe a.k.a nemo

      Hi JoeRichy,
      I moved this to Beginners' Questions (even though you're not a beginner) because it might attract more attention here.

      For people in your position, I recommend the NL Beginner's course (the link is in my sig).

      It is essentially all the material you're looking for, organized in a sensible progression.

      Good luck!

      No shame in admitting you dont know what to do quite the opposite in fact

      :D Hi JoeRichy

      First of all you need to make the decision of what game type you want to pursue, no one can really make this decision for you. It's going to be something you work on for most weeks if not days of your life for however long you play for.

      If you do decide to go for No Limit Cash Games then yes like Vorpal said the beginner course is a great place to start, you can find all articles or videos by clicking the strategy or the video tabs at the top of the website

      Let us know what game type you pick and we can direct you to some more specific material.

      Good luck
      Carl
