      Hello everybody!

      I am wondering how to spend my 50 dollars the best way at titan poker?
      Which limit and type of game would be the most profitable
      with the least risk of losing money in the long term?

      Thankful for answers

      It is your choice which game you'll play, just stick to bankroll management.

      Hi Patrik,

      the game type doesn't really matter that much just choose the one you enjoy the most. I heard that Titan is quite good for fixed limit so if you have no favorite type of game you might give fixed limit a try.

      To get an aswer to your other question you should read the bankroll management article for the type of game you choose. You find these in the strategy section. Basically you need to start at the lowest limit and move your up the limits as your bankroll increases. If you start at a higher limit there is a pretty big chance you might go broke even if you play really well!

      So read the strategy articles (especially the one about bankroll management) watch the videos visit the coachings discuss your hands in the forum and enjoy free poker for life!

      See you at the tables,
      Lubor

      I made up my mind and think 0.02/0.04 fixed limit holdem
      is perfect for my 50 dollar bankroll thank you for your advice.

      You can actually play a higher limit than .02/.04 if you like. I'm pretty sure BRM for fixed limit is 300bb's. So even if you play .05/.1, you still have 500 bb's.

      Playing below BRM isn't adviced just as much as playing above BRM imo. If you are on a hot streak, and you dont notice your roll building up, then it has a negative mental affect.

      It is ok to change the BRM articles a little, to suit your game. But I wouldn't advise playing well below or above your BR allowences.

      cannell555 is right about BRM. You can start play and beat 0.1$ game easily with PS knowledge (videos+articles).

      And dont forget to post your trouble hands in forum. Thats the best way to improve your game.

      Thank you!

      That was exactly the answers I was looking for!
      Yes maybe it is worth a try to play higher limits?
      I will post every hand that I feel is worth evaluation.
      Write my progress on Patriks Poker Blog.
      I also started a swedish players group where
      I can speak to players from my own country.

      Fellow pokerplayers!

      Now I have a question about good table selection.
      What is the most valuble: high number of flops seen
      big pot size or many hands played / hour?

      Please give me more information about this
      I think it is important for the game play

      Most valuble is seen flop percentage. Pot size and played hands follows...
      If there are many players in pot it will be bigger and less hands per hour will be played.

      Hello again.

      Should I only play high pairs and high cards?
      Always bet if I am first one raising and make a call
      when somkeone raised before me with strong hands?
      Then look at the flop and if my hand improved or is the
      best always bet or else fold all the way to the end?

      Uh no, you shouldnt make a call when someone raises bofore you - almost always either fold or re-raise. The answers to all these questions are in the strategy articles, you really need to take the time to read them because none of your questions can be answered with a simple yes or no.

      I just dont know how to win at poker but sure
      calling is worse than raising and folding.
      It is really hard to be certain to win if you
      dont have the highest combination available.

      On Titan play fixed limit 0.2/0.4 for bankroll building, on NL there are just too many calling machines and maniacs, even on micro limits. You'll get your good hands cracked too many times with players calling and raising with 2 5o hands and similar.

      1$ SNG's are sick same as NL cash tables, better play 0.10, 0.20, 0.50 buy in 10 player SNG's for start, atleast until you learn how to play SNG. Be extra tight at beggining, just follow PS rules.
