      just wondering what areas people think they've had the biggest improvement in their game.

      Mine has improved in 2 areas....i'm not leaking as many chips playing silly hands out of position, and i think i've developed more patient and can take bad beats better (knowing that i played the hand correctly and the person that won the pot is likely to be a losing player in the long run)

      Where do others think they have made the most improvements since being on PS?

      Playing tight, and not limp every hand :)

      In all areas. Most important for me maybe: Learning to read the opponents, to putt them on a Range and to play accordingly.

      Poker that I played before era of PS, wasn't poker at all...

      LOL

      My game has improved in all areas. It's hard to pick one specific area, but I would say my ICM play is probably the most improved.

      Nice thread btw ;)

      Betting the right amount to make opponents make mistakes.
      Playing tighter.
      Discipline.

      Well, I never played poker before, so I can't compare but I can tell you how my game improved when attending coachings, watching videos and reading/posting sample hands in opposition to just reading the basic articles :
      - folding a hand that was good preflop after a bad flop
      - folding top pair with a weak kicker (gosh, I lost so much money here)
      - folding a drawing hand when it is not profitable to play further
      As you can see, mostly the "folding" stuff for me, I had no problem with aggressive play from beginning :)

      I would say the most usefull information for me so far is:

      Bankroll management
      Playing less hands but more agressively
      Which hands to play profitably post flop (TPTK not a strong hand)
      Outs and odds
      Physcological side of poker

      basically everything...:)

      i started here so.. i learned everything about the game here, pretty much. Except a video on 2p2. And around nl100-200, it was mostly private coachings and thinking about the game (whether it's reviewing my sessions or simply thinking about ways to improve) and writing about it (on raisydaisy) got me very far. now it's just a matter of time before i start getting 10k months on a regular basis ;)
