      I've been playing SNGs and want to start playing NL BSS too.

      Should I start with full ring or SH?

      Seems like it is easier to find tables and learning material like articles, books and videos and for SH than FR.

      Is it very important to get experience with FR NL before moving to SH? Any recommendations on books and videos for FR? It has to be not too dependent on stat software as I still don't have any and can't afford to buy...

      Thanks

      Download the PokerStrategy Elephant.
      You need to be able to analyse your own game, esspecially while learning a new format. Plus it's great for posting hands for review, and there is a HUD so you can start getting used to stats.
      And of course it's free!

      Suggest you have a try of both FR and SH, both quite different and very much a personal preference type decision.

      Which limit do you play when you play SNGs?

      Imo with some experience and the proper bankroll you could try to start out with 6max immediately, but you can't go wrong by starting with the fullring-games.
