      Wasup guys
      22 year old guy over here
      Just started out with playing poker 4 months ago
      I used to play VERY rarely, like once every two months at the MOST before that
      I remember trying to pick up a poker ebook 2 years ago thinking I wanted to learn, but back then I just had a look at all the graphs and terms and said hell no, lol

      Now a few months back I really really badly wanted to take on poker as a game and get as good as it gets
      I bought a book by david sklanksy - on limit holdem ... which is kinda retarded 'cause I didn't want to go for limit holdem ^^
      I started reading and tho I had problems with the whole outs/odds/range thing after a while I got kinda used to it - in my top games I even nailed the heck out of it, like I had it in me.

      Anyway, I still have MANY flaws, still play worse than I can deliver and still do some major fish mistakes that I recognize just after I've done them.
      But I've also seen improvement, when I think about how I had ZERO idea of how to actually play this game.

      So I really really wanna get good and I don't mind putting hell of an effort into it, I just need some pointers to get there I guess and that's how I ended up here.

      You all look pretty pro to me from the way you handle the information. I still can't believe that you guys (at least the upper half) uses allllllllll this stuff (like ICM, Pot odds, effective stacks and raise/call vs raise fold/ranges) in every hand you decide to play. Seems wicked.
      At times I find it hard to even calculate what the odds are that the pot offers me

      Anyway thanks for this service, ps guys!

      Hiya 22 year old guy over there and welcome to the English Community sir!

      I think we can nearly all relate to, '...and still do some major fish mistakes that I recognize just after I've done them.' You are not alone! :D

      Now, a great way to help keep focus and track your poker journey is to start a blog. Many people have one, even the mighty ones and coaches.

      Here's a link to our blogs forum, just start a new thread, give it a name and off you go, easy game!

      Also, there are our hand evaluation forums. Post hands, have a discussion about tricky situations and you'll learn very quickly that all the ICM/raise/fold/odds/outs stuff isn't nearly as scary as it first appears to be.

      and here is the link to our Strategy section, just click for the game type you want. :)

      I hope you have a great time learning and Let's hope we see you posting a lot on the forums.
      Meanwhile, if you need any help just ask and someone will be along very soon.

      Good luck and best regards,

      Thanks :D
      So far I'm only willing to deposit 10 euros at a time and even though I win a few rounds/Sit and Gos and then bam I lose a lot of money with one hand or happen to "fall victim" to a bad beat and start tilting so bad
      I remember having a good start, finishing 3rd in 2 SnGs and then deciding to play some NL Zoom with a fourth of my BR as Buy-in to pass the time. I hit top pair and have ace as a kicker (AQo). Some guy keeps raising and reraising me until we're all-in and he turns around his pocket kings and I start losing my shit lol
