      Hello everyone! I introduce myself first; my name is Pablo, and I am from Argentina --so please excuse (and point out) any grammar error!. I've been back to poker for about two months now, playing ultra-micro stakes.

      I use a lot the Spanish forum, and there is something I found quite interesting. In case it hasn't been said here yet, I tell you and you let me know if it could be done :D

      We get together once a week to discuss poker on (on? or through? which one should I use here?) skype and also talk nonsense haha.

      I thought maybe, if some of you were interested, we could do it here too! We could group together by stakes and/or poker room and discuss different hands, play a session live while the others show their thoughts about the hands and such. What do you think about it?

      PS: All credits go to Benido, who had the original idea

      Good idea.

      I'll just say, add each other with the community tool if you want to share skype details.

      OK, it looks like the groups in the forum don't have much functionality. I've created one, though, mostly to have all of us willing to join all together in one place. Here is the link: http://en.pokerstrategy.com/community/group/g3333/Fixed_Limit_Study_Groups

      So we can do this: everyone who'd like to join these groups can write here the stakes she/he is playing and we can arrange later with skype. You can add me with JLeitmotiv on skype as well, and we could arrange something. I volunteer to try to arrange the groups for each stake / set of stakes.

      Any advice is of course welcome, since I honestly have no idea on how to run this thing smoothly haha

      Hello :) i am from india & play $ .5/1 full ring

      Im in

      Infact i would like to take it forward which hopefully will improve our game by putting some stratigic discussion & all other ways which help all of us

      I would like to share few things which i have learnt from greats & will be doing right now & hopefully it may help all of us in becoming a good FL player

      1. I am learning FL 6 max & HU which i think is very important in our learning phase of full ring before we move up to higher levels from micros
      2. Putting myself out of my comfort zone by learning & going from TAG to LAGTAG & taking a small shot at higher level from time to time
      3. Putting some good strategic discussion to get players view
      4. Putting some short term goals & updating it regularly & reviewing my progress
      5. Looking forward joining a FL group which i did today :) & a partner with whom i can exchange my session review & talk about it

      These r the few things which i will be doing right now & with help of our group will do everything which it takes to improve my game

      Would like to thanks pokerstartegy coaches & all members who gives their time in helping others

      Now its the time to make it count & do something meaningfully so that we can take this farward

      Hopefully we will take this serious & discuss in detail & would also like to request coaches to give some time in showing us the right direction

      looking forward for a better poker journey with help of u guys

      Regards

      I just want to be clear. how many of us are doing full ring and how many of us are doing 6max. because to be honest i would not be much of a help to full ring players. since i find that so boring i could fall asleep while playing :D

      so in order to divide us by stakes and format i think should be wonderful and help us more than if you put 3 6max players and 2 fullring players in the same "group" who will get together once or twice a week etc.

      Yes! I forgot to mention that. Apart from the stakes, you should also write if it is 6max or FR. I was thinking about dividing the stakes up to .25/.50 and from .5/1, since I believe most of us will be below .25/50.

      For instance, I play SH .25/.50 [since today! let's hope I can stay here :) ]
