I believe if you play alot and more then one table at a time you should use an odds calaculator. I started to use one about 5 months and my game has went to a new level. It alway good to how many outs you have right away. which starting hands to play from each postion. Playing the Pot Odds can be a very profit strategy. Odds calaculator are the best way to learn how to play and be profitable. some exmaple are the holdem genius( is the one i use) and calculatem pro. You can get both of them free if you look for them

I played play money for over 6 months until I could take their initial 1k chips to 1 million and not by all innin the 1k and refilling it every loss. By playing with the 1k as real money and not refilling it or losing it. I put in 10$ 2 years back and that has been the sum total of my money put into poker. I pulled about $750 off that site in a year, then lost my roll. I did not put any money back in, I played their freerolls until I won 30$ then turned that into about 150$ in a few months then got the 20$ sponsorship to CD. After a week here I pulled all my money out of old site after had won more than old bankroll in a week. I played the micro sng's to build a bankroll, always looking for best odds on payouts vs # of players. I also learned a new game here at CDpoker, omaha and hi lo, these have turned into very profitable games for me even more consistant than hold has been. I learned these games with play chips then played in the mtt's and sng's. I have tried to learn cash table play, and I guess I have a winning record over all my sessions, but the ups and downs on my roll are too dramatic for my taste and roll. I do see if I want to be pulling cash out every single day I will have to master the cash games. But monthly I am nothing but a ATM, always pulling cash out. When I stop living off my winnings I will step up to a new limit in the fall, but can definitely make enough to survive on just on $5 or less mtt's and sng's. Good luck to all, I'd go with the practice practice advice. While those odds calculators can be helpful to online play, I don't use nor would I recommend artificial means of thinking during a game. By all means learn how to calculate the odds get a chart study it whatever, but all this play is supposed to be teaching you, to remove one part of the thought process for a artificial calculator can only make you a weaker player when you can't use it. Though can certainly see using one while studying with play chips to help verify you figuring out the odds right. By the time you playing for cash if you can't make these calcs in your head you have handicapped yourself. Just MHO YMMV
Just because I'm moody, doesn't mean you're not irritating.

USE AT YOUR OWN RISK ::::Here's what works well for me:::: Hands to Raise with: These are 'premium hands' that you want to jam the pot with preflop: (I never rasie more then 5x big blind unless it takes more then half my stack then I go all in) AA, KK, QQ, AK, JJ, AQ, TT Hands to call with: You want to see the flop with these hands and then decide. Do not call more than three bets with these hands, call only once maybe twice. AJ, KQ, QJ, JT, T9 (only if of same suit), 99, 88, 77, Ax (same suit) The Flop, if you do not have Top Pair, Two Pair, a Set (3 of a kind), 4 to the Flush, or 4 to the straight fold to any bet. If you have Top Pair bet or fold if there is a made hand on the board (3 suited cards or 3 consecutive cards or there is a pair on the board) you will fold 67% or more of your hands at the flop. If we have a set bet and raise, if holding 4 to the flush bet and raise, if holding 4 to the straight, bet and call. The Turn, still betting, but WATCHING for a call station to come alive if the board pairs, or to suddenly start betting when an odd rag card hits –someone made a hand time to fold, if everyone is calling that’s fine for you if they are raising top pair – time to call, if raising you with 2 pair or a set I am re-raising, if I am on a draw, if it is the nut draw I am calling, if it’s a flush and the betting is heavy, if you do not have the A or K as part of the flush – consider folding here, nothing worse than absorbing all the bets only to lose to a better flush.. The River, no matter what, if the bet is checked to you bet. Even if you missed your draw, if there is a bet and you believe you have the hand raise, if not sure call – one bet will not kill your bankroll. Hope someone can bene from it. -E

depending on how expensive it is to call the flop..I'll usually try to limp in...if there's already a pre-flop raise before it's my turn to act I'll re-raise to try and get the "junk" out of the way and create a HU situation to better my chances.. If the betting is still coming at me hard and I don't spike s et by the turn...I usually lay it down....unless I feel my PP is standing up... cheers.jeff

Oh gosh, I will ask any PRO players I would love to ask PRO for anything to improve to my games. If Pro player out there, I would like to learn strategy more about No limit and Pot Limit even the HORSE . I also have hard time to read people when they hit two pairs and uh.. set the flop, and position. How I know if I am out of the way on the position. how can I deal with people who call anything? I know there r many many ways to learn strategy. I would like some advices from ya all how to kick ppl's butts everytime I win :) Also how to deal with crazy people who love to re-raise on nothing.
