I'm sorry I'm bothering you, but what's the best way to start learning poker?

I've been thinking about getting into it, but since I don't have friends who play it, I haven't start it yet.

obviously start from the basics. go to a library and get some pokerbooks (their information is somewhat old and dated but you can learn the basics from them). also start reading pokerforums, i don't know if you have any in portugal but 2+2 (http://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/2/general-poker-.. is a great international forum. search for some beginner's poker articles there. when you have gained enough skill, get a membership for some training site(s) like cardrunners, bluefirepoker etc.

in general, just search for poker articles and infromation from the internet and be enthusiastic to learn! remember: it takes really long time to become even near decent in poker, just be patient. hope this helps.

edit: i assume you know the rules, otherwise start by learning them! :D

That's like impossible. No one in the right mind would fold pocket K's preflop. He's obviously very retarded and lucky at the same time.

this inst true...i saw manytimes fold KK before flop from top poker playrs

folding KK pf is wrong ~always. there are some situations when folding KK or even AA can have the highest ev. these spots are obviously EXTREMELY rare. the situations presented in this thread are not even nowhere near correct folds, they are pretty horrible.
2012-02-05 18:26:13
it isnt always wrong...if you know your "enemies" and their gamestyle,u actually can expect monsterhands...for example doyle brunson,he is rly passive player and he waits for good hands.lot of players fold rly good hands against him because they know him.i actually never fold kings but i fold for example QQ manytimes

and there are another factors of course...cash game/tournament(final table),all in/mid raise/limp,position,chip count etc etc

i agree with you but that's pretty much first level thinking. there's so much more to it than just "knowing your enemies", f.e. stacksizes, positions, your image, potodds, gameformat etc. don't get me wrong, having reads is an essential part of succeeding in poker. but really, based on purely equitys between different ranges (check a program called pokerstove if interested and havent heard of it before!), KK is almost never a good fold preflop. as i said, there are some exceptions, mostly on tournament's moneybubbles where all the cashes have the same prize.

talking about folding KK preflop is actually one of the most redundant things ever strategywise, but here i am doing it! :D

e: oh you edited your post, makes my post less informative for you at least then

Well, you got to take a lot of things into consideration. I would never fold pocket K's preflop simply because I'm the kind of guy who always regrets. I wouldn't be able to live properly thinking that I folded pocket K's preflop, lol.

Obviously If I did fold pocket K's and realized that the other guy had pocket ace's or even an AK i would probably not give a shit and be happy, but what are the odds of that happening :D

i didnt fall kk aswell:) i just want to say that in some cases it can be understandable

Ah there I was thinking that poker was all about luck but how wrong am I huh? :)
2012-02-05 18:56:12
There are some players that are SO good at reading people, that they don't even need to look at their own cards to win pots.

For me(I'm not a pro player), poker is 95% skill and 5% luck.

on FTP once I had full of Jacks with 8,the opponent had full of 8 with Jacks,and he made four 8 on river. Not rigged at all :P

At first I thought this thread was about Andreas "KongKat" Andreason and I was disappointed.

I think the best hand of poker a friend linked me was the guy who wins final pot with paired twos.

Poker is going to die, learn CS instead

It's easy to learn, just google the rules and how to play then you can practice with people online for free. Then start playing for money online and if you think you're good enough, try to find some places in your locality where you can play with low stakes. Gradually you can play with higher stakes as you improve but believe me that takes a LONG time, unless you're filthy rich.

Great videos, I appreciate watching videos. I also try to learn poker better and to improve my skills. Sometimes I feel a little bit lost... especially when I hear about the the world's best poker players (like here http://www.pokerinca.com/worlds-best-poker-players ) .. geez... why are they so good? *haha* I think I would be happy when I would win a bit more often ;) but I guess you have to play active and passive more games and gain some experience.
