I need a crash course on Poker

The whole 9 yards basically, I want to re-learn the game methodically.

What hands to raise with in which position, when to continue, how much action is my hand worth, SPR ratios, pot commitment thresholds, mistakes to avoid, everything.

This may not be the right forums but I can someone lead to to some advanced strategy? I see the same regs run up their stacks to 5-6 BI's or more and they rarely ever show up with a questionable hand. I'm talking live poker.

I can beat the weekend fish or even your regular TAG/LAG fish that has exploitable tendencies. But I want to be as good as those regs that pay their rent and build their first home downpayment with poker money!

OP, this might surprise you, but twoplustwo is not just a website for shenanigans around Poker, but also a publisher for books from which you can learn all those things you mentioned.

Re: I need a crash course on Poker

To truly re-learn the game, the first step is clearing your mind of all baggage and bad habits that led you down a losing poker path.

Whatever you have been doing in poker, you must stop doing so you can truly start over.

And if that means we never see any of your garbage threads or posts again, we'll understand that it's a step on your road to poker success.

Well yes, but for the 0.10/0.20 the demands are prolly pretty low. Maybe still too much for MTT though
