      Hey Dario,
      Welcome to PS and congrats on passing the quiz. As soon as you sit down at a table you'll become a bronze member and gain access to videos and articles. I would recommend the bankroll management as it's crucial to becomming a profitable player. Good luck on the felt!

      Hey Dario,

      Welcome to PokerStrategy and congratulations on passing the test, especially 1st time.

      As has already been mentioned, i would suggest building up your knowledge on a regular basis by reading and re-reading all the articles, not only the strategy ones but also the psychology ones as i found these a brilliant help when i was first starting. Also you have the videos and private coachings.

      And if you are having trouble with the way you played a hand then feel free to post them in the hand posting forum for review.

      Regards,
      -Steve

      Thanks for the quick answers, guys!!

      I will be trying poker stars tournaments, probably. I like a lot to play long tournaments.

      Do you have some special recommendations for me?

      Hugs!

      Hey Dario,

      Ideally for playing tournaments you should be using a 1% of your bankroll buy-in rule which means that to start playing tournaments you really need at least a minimum of $100 to ensure proper bankroll management.

      If you dont want to play cash to build your bankroll then i suggest that you start with the $50 playing the $1 SNGs as a safer option.

      Just be sure to read the SNG articles, watch the videos and attend the coachings as these will all help you to become a better player.

      Regards,
      -Steve

      Thanks! I'll be considering it.
      Well, finally i ended the long week of work, but I haven't got my starting capital yet. I think I read that it can take up to 48hrs, did I read wrong?
      I wanted to play poker the weekend.. :(
      But well, I'll have to wait until next weekend to have some fun at the tables!!!!

      Take care PokerStrategy members

      Good luck and welcome :)

      Just be sure to spend enough time studying the strategy articles and watching videos. After all poker is a strategy game and not so much a game of luck - if you approach it correctly.

      With bankroll management and good strategy - there are no boundries :)
