2)Heads up or 6 max to start with?I know it is totally different strategy but which is the most easy to learn?
3)When you say bb/100 and you have for example 2bb/100 in nl100 this means you make 2$/hr if in one hour you play 100 hands?
4)Are the edges going down in cash games too so much as the sngs?
5)Which site would you recommend for 6 max cash and which trainer?
I have 20K hands split between 20NL and 50NL, and I'm winning at 9bb/100 running very far under EV. There are a ton
of fish playing these levels. I think close to 10bb/100 is sustainable if you abuse the fish and learn the habits of the regs.
I don't play a lot of heads up, but I understand that it's one of the best ways to learn. I hear the downsides are that the variance is larger, so you'll need a bigger bankroll at whatever level you're playing. You also need to game-select more, since if you find yourself against someone better than you, there won't be any fish at the table to offset it. I'd be interested in other people's takes on this though.
Yes. When people write bb/100 (with lower-case b's) it means big-blinds per 100. When people write BB/100 (with upper-case Bs) they sometimes mean big-bets per 100. This comes from limit hold'em and a big-bet is two big-blinds.
Yes, but the cash games are still very beatable, especially with rakeback.
Training site? I think they're all pretty good for 6max. I use DeucesCracked now, and I used Leggo Poker before. I've learned a lot from both. As for a particular coach, I think it depends on your own style and weaknesses. But definitely don't just focus on one coach. There's a lot to learn from different styles.
