The burning question every advent poker player asks is "how to play texas holdem" the correct way? There are many answers to this question. Texasholdem poker and texas holdem strategy are 2 big keys to your success. If you are just starting out playing texas holdem poker online, you need to strictly stick to sitandgo's for the experience and the knowledge. I highly recommend you deposit just 50 dollars in your yexas holdem account and play with this money wisely. I suggest playing 2 dollar sit n go's where first place is the following: 1st place = 50% of the total overall prize pool 2nd place = 30% of the total overall prize pool 3rd place = 20% of the total overall prize pool You may be playing for next to nothing as far as winning money playing 2 dollar sit n go's but you can gain the knowledge, know how, experience, and confidence to lead to higher winning potential. Constantly winning 2 dollar sit n go's will lead to you eventually playing 5 dollar sit and go's, 10 dollar sit and go's, 20 dollar sit n go's, 50 dollar sit n go's, 100 dollar sit n go's, 200 dollar sit n gos, 500 dollar sit n go's, and finally 1000 dollar sit n go's. Currently I am playing 500 dollar sit n go's on Full tilt bandarqq. I started out as a newbie to the online poker world just like you may be doing now. I played a little bit of house games for a few years and then jumped into the online poker world. I had a rude awakening when I decided to play cash games instead of playing strictly sit and go's. I remember the first day I jumped on, I deposited 50 dollars, got roasted in 3 minutes when I had QQ other guy had KK, and then deposited again within 10 minutes. I won 25 dollars and I was now up to 75 dollars and had AA on the button. This one player raised to 3 dollars (.25/.50 blinds) I made it 7.50 and they call. Flop comes J 3 6. They check, I bet 13 dollars, he goes all in for my entire stack (at this point it was around 50 bucks left) I call and he turns over pocket 3's! I couldn't believe it. I lost my entire bankroll in 10 minutes! At this point in time, I took a week break and vowed never to play cash games again online. When I got back from my week break, I deposited 50 dollars and played strictly sit and go's. That was back in 2005 and I have never deposited ever since. My bankroll is well over 500k and I now play poker online as a full time living. It has allowed me much more time to spend with my kids and wife. I do not have to be stuck behind a desk working a 9-5 job praying for 5 o'clock to hit. I wish you the best of luck and please take my advice. Remember, stay dedicated, disciplined, and play solid poker. Don't gamble, use your skills when playing!
