I suggest start from zero. Learn basic poker theory for beginner ( conservative theory) . In fact that theory more effective to play micro or middle buy in. Start s n g first, if your percentage 60% ( 6 of 10 you win prize/ITM ) you could play MTT. Don't play at big site, start from small site first. For MTT I suggest Gear poker.For s n g , merge gaming, ex : Hero. Good luck, I wish you improve soon

since you have a pokerstars account, join there poker school online, also good games to play when your starting out is the 10 player FIFTY50. start with the $1.50 buyin. these games are good because half the field gets paid instead of the top 3. so when there is only 5 players left, the game ends, and players get paid according to how many chips they have. at the $1.50 level your paid $1.39 plus $0.04 for every 100 chips you have. Its best to start small.as you start to win move up to higher stakes,.
don't dismiss freerolls as a spot to learn. there are tons(almost completely full) of bad players in which you can develop a tight aggressive winning style. If you cannot beat the worst players in the game then there is little hope in beating players with more skill.

right now i am running fairly decent in the p***************e leaderboard at 933 spot overall(open league)....i know my basic poker theory, NLHE is the game i am very used to playing, so that is what i stick to playing, also i do not use a hud,
i tryed that .1.2NL cash games in pokerstars but that very little success, SNG1.509 man ive cashed about 5/10, , but noticed that my bankroll got smaller, as the days went on by surely i was missing something, as for mtt's i have gotten busted early on in the game, well typically i waited for starting hands like AK AQ AJ, KQ, P10's and higher and opened it up a bit some when i can get in the pot cheap and never really had success ....well basically...i am stumped....
------------ i am leaning toward finding a smaller site, and start freerolling, and scrap the thought of reloading my pokerstar account, but what sites are best for building a reasonable bankroll?....
