      Hey sleeeep

      I would say more like 2 hours play and 1 hour study personally. Although it is different for everyone of course, people learn in different ways. I just think as a beginner the most important thing is experience, how many hands have you played so far? It's important to get as many hands played as possible before we start judging our results too much, it's great to question our plays and thought processes but until we have a decent sample size of hands we shouldn't worry too much about results. Also it's fine reading articles and watching videos but it doesn't compare to playing yourself.

      I don't know how much experience you have but what i would say is concentrate on reading boards and counting odds and outs as much as possible, review tricky hands after sessions and post in the hand evaluation forums. Have you joined the beginners course yet? If not i suggest following the link in my sig and you won't be disapointed :)

      Good luck :)

I will join that course thanks, by the way after every article/pro videos studied I say myself "wow, it is getting deeper and deeper and I played up to now without knowing this? lol"
