GL with the adventure - there's a pretty strong membership of the min-bet mafia in the blog section now so there should be no shortage of help!
BTW in my opinion the standard playing styles v one opponent is THE most important article when starting out to ensure you get value from your hands (after the Bronze FR charts at least). I recommend you write out each of the standard lines and know them by heart.
And I see you are posting hands you are unsure of in the hand evaluation forums. This will help lots too.
Yeah, 25BB (Big Bets, not big blinds) are common. Not as much at FR, but still. You should get used to the swing as FL. Read my signature
Even though 1k sample size is quite low, numbers should be a bit higher. Try to play according to the chart. And HU article is really really really important
Most of the time, there is a HU situation on a flop that's why it is so important. Read that article again. Maybe watch some video. It's important to fully understand bronze articles before moving to the silver ones.
I had the problem with remembering articles too.
I found that the best way to learn (for me ofc.) is to write lines and stuff down on the paper,try to remember them and then try to explain them to another person. After I can do that without mistake I'm finished with the first part of learning process. Then I will start the second phase - sarching the hand judge forum(or database) for the situations where I can see the articles in practice (f.e. I read article "Playing made hands on the flop" and then I want to review all hands where Hero had made hand on the flop). This can eat a lot of time but it's really worth it. Then maybe I can watch some videos and work with them (stop video, try to think what would I do in this hand and then hear the commentary). And of course, I have to play and gain experience and knowledge.

I play on PartyPoker too, but as soon as I clear first deposit bonus I'm out of there. I play FR 0.15$/0.30$ so tell me something about traffic. It's hard to find two tables at one time, and I saw three tables at one time like two times this month. I'm really close to moving up to 0.25/0.50 though. Does traffic on 0.25/0.50 sucks a lot?
I didn't really played FL on other sites (except 50 hands on Titan) so I can't tell how good traffic is on them, but from what I've heard iPoker and stars are good. But I think I'll go to FullTilt anyway
