Thanks will do. I had a quick lesson when I went into an Omaha H/L tournament without realising it. Got four cards dealt instead of the two I was expecting and had a quick rush to google to work out how to play the game. No surprise that I got knocked out fairly quickly.HighRoller said:Hey hows it going?
i started the same as you chucking $50 into pokerstars 6 months ago or so. Now ive increased it a hell of a lot since then. Your best thing to do is read forums and then read some more forums. The more you know about the game the better you will go. Read up about bankrolls, position,check-raising etc
Its amazing how much you can learn that you dont really think about.
I've had a few more play money s&g and might contend myself with those while I learn more about the game. I'll throw another $50 in next month and see if I can do any better. I reckon I've learned heaps just in the past few days, hopefully that continues because I'm really enjoying it.
Anyway, I got 25th in the freeroll tournament and have a place in the weekly tournament on Sunday. I was absolutely knackered by the end of it (went nearly 5 hours) and couldn't believe how physically (and mentally) drained I was just sitting behind a computer screen. I'd imagine it would be twice as bad in a proper tournament.
