Hi Everyone.  My name is Mike, and I’m new to MicroGrinder and to poker in general.  I started reading about NL Texas Holdem a few weeks ago, and to make a long story short decided that I wanted to learn to play this game at as high a level as I can reach.  I found a couple of Alton’s books on Amazon, read them, and here I am to do my best to learn the game properly.  I’m working my way through the Crushing the Micro Stakes course, have signed up on America’s Cardroom and played enough hands to have my butt handed to me pretty quickly.  I purchased PokerTracker 4, downloaded Equilab, and am now settling down to spend a lot of quality time with Alton’s course before I go back online.  Any advice on learning the game is appreciated, and I’d also really like to make some contacts with others who are new students of the game.

Hi Mike, welcome to the forum. Glad to see you on the forum, its a good place to ask questions and post hand history reviews. Check out my YouTube video on Studying in Poker and a Framework for Learning Poker, I think you might find these videos helpful:

I’d also recommend subscribing to my YouTube channel too.

Thanks Alton!  I subscribed to your YouTube channel earlier today, so I’ll definitely check out these videos.  There’s definitely a lot of material to absorb as a beginner, and I’m trying to identify the best information sources and have them at my fingertips.  I really like your material and presentation – I think it’ll work well for me.
