    I think I am starting to get he hang of this now. lol

    Just finished my 5Th Freeroll tourney in the top 7.8% winning my third ticket ITM (In The Money). While not finishing very strongly in the morning tournement I did not let myself get discouraged. I practiced plugging some of my holes (my weak points) on the play money tables throughout the afternoon and did much better in the evening game.

    Now the play money tables can be difficult at times with the shove monkeys in there throwing their chips out like confetti, decent tables can be found where real poker is played. Those are the ones I seek out and practice on.

    I am proud to say that my initial grant of 1000 play money chips has grown to nearly triple that with no need to ask the cashier for more. I am not sure how many of the shove monkeys I have come across can say the same. I do value my play money as it were real because that is what I use to practice, practice, practice

    If your serious about learning how to play poker the PSO is the place to do it. There is plenty to learn here and the PokerStars tables are a great place to practice.

      Play Money Sit and Go's

      Dennis,

      Thank you for pointing me in the direction of the play money sit and go’s, I did not know that such games were available for play money players like myself just learning the game and not quite ready to take the plunge into the real money investment. The 2000 buy in is a bit steep currently (thou thank you for your offer of chips). Playing at the 2000 chip level right now would violate 2 of the 3 rules for bank roll management covered in the PSO core course:

      Basic Rules of Bankroll Management
      2. Do not take more than 10% of your bankroll to a cash table or a tournament.
      3. Stay in your comfort zone by only playing limits that don't intimidate you or put your entire bankroll as risk.

      I did however find several play money games that I will be checking into shortly that are within my comfort zone. These include: Play Money NL Hold’em (10) [Turbo 6-Max,Fifty50]or Turbo, 6-Max, Hold’um NL 50+5, 100+9, or even 200+15 (if I dare).

      My BF (a pro player himself) offered to deposit money into my account and I turned him down because I really do want to see how far I can go on my own, learning the game from the bottom up. I am sure playing in a number of sit and go’s as well as freeroll tourneys (where I can win some actual cash) will go a long way in boosting my confidence level.

      Thanks again Dennis and perhaps a live home game is on the horizon. Does your wife play? Hemet is not that far from here and I am sure my bf would be willing to take me on his hog out that way for a meet and greet with some live table action with fellow PSO members.

        Thanks Bro!

        Thanks Dennis ,

        Good looking out Dude. I did not know that there was a play money site that had Sngs for her. I Knew about the ring games and all but not that location. Never had a need to tell now. All so thanks for the play money chip offer for Sue. She did not even want mine lol.

        I even wanted to put cash in her account, she was not having it. Which is cool if you think about it. She is doing well though, She puts what time she can in. Gets better by the day.

        But yea , we should get together for a home game or two when I am out that way. That would be cool.

        Thanks bro,

        Julius

            Nice to hear Sue. umbup: You should also be playing freerolls for real money. No reason not to practice on those. Then you can take the small money to be won there and start real bankroll management. Best o' luck, Dano ps..what up julius
