Can anyone comment whether the 400-1000NL games have evolved in the last 6 months?

Some fucking deep stacks in this thread lol. I think highest I ever played ring games online was like .50-1

When you get into poker seriously, it's basically all about analytics and critical thinking.

My advice: variance sucks get used to it.

Analysis, not analytics

is poker worth getting into?

i was trying to get into microlimits when i realized the amount of time required to put in reading and playing might not be worth the small amount one might gain.

You mean to earn $$? Then microlimit is a waste of time.

To learn the ropes, yes.

Read books. The ones that upped my game were Harrington's, but that was a while ago so there might be better beginner books out there now.

Play at a level youre comfortable losing at.


Forget about freerolls and microtourneys as a benchmark of your skills. Play micro cash games.

The rake will kill u at micro, so forget about profit and think of it as practice. tbh if youre comfortable with the money id start at 25NL.

I remember losing when i started out at 25NL and 50NL then make a killing at 100NL and moving up from there, sometimes if the moneys just too little for u u wont be serious about it.
post #236 of 296
definitely not enough bankroll for 25nl

Just start lower and work your way up. And play somewhere with rakeback.

Get burned with big real money just once. You will remember those mistakes.

Is poker worth getting into? What kind of poker?

Online poker isn't worth the time commitment for me. I played online for a few weeks in 2009 and made a few bucks on SNG's and matrix SNG's on Full Tilt. It was fun for a while but became a bit of a drag. Part of my problem is that I can spend too much time playing cards online.

Brick and mortar casino and cardroom games are not an option for me since I live in North Carolina.

Home games? Definitely worth the time in my opinion. They can be financially and socially rewarding. Home games give you the opportunity to play games other than holdem and Omaha. There is a whole world of poker out there beyond those two games. Ask someone over 60.

home games is where i started, but i quit once i realized i never made any money. never lost any, but never made any. altho i feel like if i got in it now i could do pretty well
