      My name is Goncalo :f_drink: , I played poker a couple of times before, did it for several months but on the end always finished in bankrupt I think 2 time now, and on the last I decided my self that I wouldn't play it again, until one day I start reading a book, Treat your poker as a busyness , My opinion in those "bad days" were because I always attach emotionally to the game, that it is a very bad thing.

      Anyway, I subscribe to you guys cuz Im looking to improve my game, and if possible in the future make poker my life time earning, I know that I have a long way to go but Im looking forward to start, and Im motivated...

      I see you guys around, and Im searching for a group as well to start trading opinions and experiences.

      My best regards :f_grin:

      Good luck. I would take a look at the strategy articles on here, and start at very low stakes so if you lose while you are learning it won't be too serious.

I did read some books (Theory of poker"too advenced", Super system"Doyle Brunson") . So Im studying and palying 50/50 so I can back on track, and from now on is going to get to the top, goal by goal, my first goal is to do $100 bankroll Until March I think it is enough time to do it. xD

      Hi RedFoxyBam,

      It's great that you try to find a balance between studying the game and playing. A lot of people are treading water because they focus too much on grinding and putting volume in, rather than improving their game. Of course, there are also players who study so much that they may end up forgetting to put their knowledge to the test at the tables, but that's less common.

      If you haven't already, make sure to check out our Overview of NL Hold'em lessons.

      Do you have any bankroll management guidelines? This is an essential part of your game, some might even say it could be more important than your actual strategy.

      Also, good luck on your goal of getting a steady second income through poker! Progress may seem slow at first and there will surely be a lot of swings, but if you stay at it, you should be able to pull it off. A lot of people over here have done it already. Just keep in mind that you need a reasonably big sample of hands before you can make predictions about your true winrate, which you will need to do before you make any big decisions about your career.
