denmartin said:I think,A solid poker player knows the general probabilities of the game. For example, they know that you have about 1 in 8.5 chance of hitting a set when holding a pocket pair, and that you have about a 1 in 3 chance of completing a flopped flush draw by the river. Good players understand the importance of outs. Outs are simply the number of cards that will improve your hand. Count your outs, multiply them by two, and add one, and that's roughly the percentage shot you have at hitting.

1- play a lot of hands with many different players so you can see how they play, and maybe learn from the best of them.
2- go to poker tutorials, books and every documentation you can get your hands on
Maybe I'm wrong!!!!! I don't know

DarkLight said:I play online ( fake and real money). I just started playing real money online 2 days ago.
I am playing the penny tables and i played a s&go tourney the other day.
I placed 8th in the tourney (out of 18).
I really want to become a better player. Any tips? Any books to read? Any general recommendations for a beginning poker player?
Thanks everyone for the feedback, i am sure it will help me out.
