I agree. Learning the basic strategy first in order to decrease the chances of someone taking your money and increase your chances of winning the jackpot.

Just enjoy the game. Be cool. ;)
When you play poker, you shouldn't do it to break free or out from being down or having a really worst day. And accept if you lose the game.

I guess the more practice you get, the better you will get to become a successful poker player.

Iʼve looked at poker books, internet articles, forum posts... Iʼve even searched “how to become a successful online poker player” on YouTube! (*believe it or not, that youtube search was by far the most useful!!!) lol

Read some poker related books and whenever you play, your mind should be cool and tension free.

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. :p :p

I'm trying to become a better poker player myself and i got to one conclusion, that there are 2 way to become one
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

Yeah I love poker and to become a pro what I do is play all the time when I am free. The best way to practice is playing online with friends just for the fun of it and play pc games for poker this enables you to get really really familiar with the games. Well this is what I do play with all sort of people and play games it really helped me so far being doing this for a year and a half.

I'd say browsing on the internet to find the best casino bonus deals and playing strictly for the casino money in order to turn it into spendable cash is the basic idea of casino whoring. Hope that was helpful ;)

I just check my emails and I get 10 new casino bonuses a day......The problem is that these days there are just so many online casino scams that you can hardly trust anyone....

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.
I'm also want to make a profession player in gambling..but I'm learning from gambling website who describe strategies, tips & other thing about all type of gambling games...I mostly play for real money...Do you want that source??
