Each one knows how can spend your money. But I think that a good way to learn is playing freerolls and study the basic rules. Math it´s hard, but position, premium hands, draw and bets are easy to remember...

Sure you are right, but there are two important things in the online poker world. Trust in a poker room and hackers that still exist. I played for 4 years in a poker room and i have no confidence in it anymore because i really have not been allowed to make money there. They are not allowed to make money for many players and that's what i know very well. Otherwise you can make money if you are good but avoid small rooms.

Freerols are closer to reality than playing for fun of course. But some times according to the tournaments you are playing, freerolls are far from the buy in tournaments. You just learn the basics there, winning free money, and then starting from low buy ins, your way up.
Hello maragatero. I must say that you are a great philosopher. It's reaaly good way to study the game you are playing. Also it's better to spend your money on poker than on some useless things like a deodorant for your balls. At least you could win some money.
I think your attitude is good, if I compare it to myself. What you probably don't have and what I have , is sometimes the occasional tilt. In the years I noticed I really became better, but there is one thing where I have to work harder on and that is not getting to emotional. I think you are heading the right way. position play you mentioned, really important, also bet sizing is something word study. There are a lot of good value things like sit n go's with 180 people, but if you also just play a 9 men table sit n go it will be good to play, because it is like the final table of a tournament, you will learn to play with less people and even master the headsup game, what also will happen if you ever finish in a tourney. So small sit and gos and cashgames for cents is something I would recommend, besides the freerolls, always good, but some people just play different in a freeroll anyway! GL man
