      Hey guys thanks a lot for the feedback. Much appreciated!

      I am just starting out and currently playing NL5 on pokerstars and struggling to move up a limit. I am currently using the SHC and basing my post-flop decisions on the "How to play before the flop" article.

      Should I finish the course? Or should I wait until I reach NL50 and then resume the course again?

      Can you recommend a good poker site for beginners to start out on?



      Thanking you,
      Samin

      This course is intended to help you move up the limits so you should definitely aim to work through it as you play at the lower limits.

      By the time you reach NL50 you should know everything that is present here.

      Any of the sites that you can find at http://www.pokerstrategy.com/online-poker-rooms/ are tailored to help beginners.

      Just make sure you follow a bankroll strategy and don't move up until you have enough money/skill.

      Best of luck,

      Bogdan
