Welcome to our poker lounge! Best bet is to grab Doyle Brunson's poker bible; Super System I. You've probably seen Rounders, after you read it then watch it again so you understand the nuances of poker, the lingo, jargon even, and of course the setting. Live vs online is fairly different. I've played in real life underground games like that which is like art imitating life or life imitating art. Back alley, cameras, security, etc...etc. Casinos are fun but those games have an aura to it that's different.

Then play some freerolls on Full Tilt or Poker Stars although it's very loose. At least you can get some practice in. Once you have an idea on what hands to play and more importantly how to play it then you can start with the .1/.2 cent games or .5/.10 then progress from there.

But hey we all started playing small games in the beginning then gradually learned and progressed.

Easy game to learn, but takes a lifetime to master.

If you have any questions about hand selections, plays, terminology, let me know.

PS: A great documentary called "All In" came out not too long ago. Talks about the history of poker up to Black Friday. Check it out.

Marcus Aurelius: Tell me again, Maximus, why are we here?
Maximus: For the glory of the Empire, sire.

Baked, not fried... the healthy choice.
