      Okay i've been playing poker just over a year now, but not solidly online.
      I've been playing for about 5 months online off and on. I have started to grind NL10 again (4 tabling) but just seem to break even everytime, even with bonuses to unlock, which means i'm actually a losing player if it wasn't for the bonus. I'm currently playing at william hill.

      I play 6 max, i play loosely and i have made some videos of myself playing and talking about what i'm thinking. Is there any coaching sesh's i could attend or perhaps somone to review my video? I'm really interested in poker and wan't to get good at it. I also post hands on the fomus and try to help others out.

      Thanks guys.

      playing tight is not that profitable playing 6 handed.
      I raise extremely loose on the button, and not so loose OOP.

      Nothing bad w that if you know what to do on later streets. Post up a vid, someone will review it eventually and if not maybe i'll do it myself, my 6max game stinks tho. :P

      I´ve been going trough the same problem. I´m still breaking even after a long time playing. My graph is like a rollercoaster, it looks totally random. So I guess I´m winnning when I hit good hands and losing when I don´t.. therefore my game still depends A LOT on this nasty thing called luck.

      I´m definately not a losing player, but I still have a lot to learn. What I´m trying to figure out now is how I can maximize my winnings and minimize my losses, which means finding leaks, studying bet sizes etc.

      Let´s keep in touch. Post hands, send vids, let´s work on them together.

      My skype is cauelaratta.

      See ya

      Without experience and a decent postlop game I would suggest full ring for a while. Read the Bronze articles and watch the videos. Attend the coaching sessions for Bronze full ring. If you think you have a fair understanding of post flop play and a bit of hand reading, use the Silver section articles and videos. Play lower if you can while you learn, it's cheaper. :)
      Best of all IMO, attend the live coachings for the level you feel you're at, they are a goldmine for learning and you can post hands for the coach to analyze and ask questions live to.
      This site just rocks.

      Sure :)

      And i do feal i have a good postflop game, despite my results. I'm definately a 6 max player, i hate full ring. I do read articles and videos, and i'm soon going to upload a video of me playing NL10.
      Thanks for the responces guys ^
