      stop playing immediately and read the guides again!!!!
      which limits did you play? FL or NL?
      -45$ is a lot on the lowest stakes, especially within 2-3 days.

      if you have only 5$ left, your best shot would be the 0,5/0,10 Fl games, even though your bankroll is very small for those games. Read the FL articles several times, look at sample hands, do that for a couple of days before you again sit down at the tables and when you feel confident start playing 1 table of 0,05/0,1 and hope you get lucky and hit a good run so you don't go broke. :)
      good luck
      also: if you have time, maybe listen to the coaching today

      i don't know if NL or FL is easier, i think it doesn't really matter that much, play whichever you want
      still, definitely read the beginners guide again over and over!!!

      The problem with SSS is that you can loose a whole stack with just one wrong decision. In FL you will loose only one or two BB when you make a wrong decision.

      If you decide to go for NL you should definetly start with the Short Stack Strategy which is quite easy to learn. Perhaps you should visit Alatons SSS coaching before that.

      Hmmm,

      perhaps you missed this news ???

      All in all you can read much more articles now but they are mainly in the bronze area.

      Or is it a technical problem that you can't see any article???

      Please let me know so i can help

      Best regards,
      Stefan

      It's the same problem as it was directly after the big update, the section shows "No articles available".

      No i wouldn't focus on both. It is the double amount to learn.

      If you play NL just play the Short Stack Strategy.

      I think the best think someone can do is to just play FL on 0.05/0.10 and stick to the Bankroll Managment. And much more important, stick to the Starting Hands Chart.

      The problem with No-Limit is that with only one wrong decision you loose a complete stack.

      My suggestion for beginners would be to start with Fixed Limit. Later you can still switch over to NL.

      Best regards,
      Stefan
