i guess some people are just born to be below average poker players like me. i am good at trading though and consistently profit, but it took me a while and a decent series of losses before i pulled through. overall i would choose being good at trading over being good at poker if i had the choice anyways.

reading people's analyses of hands here, talking about "not liking the middling size of this bet on the flop" is downright intimidating to me. i like brad owen's videos and can see myself thinking and playing like him after some more studying, although he's not a top tier professional and makes mistakes in each videos usually. also hes a bit tilty sometimes. hes still a winning player overall in 2/5 and 5/10 so i find him a respectable source for learning poker.
Do not learn from Brad Owen his situation is entirely different to yours. Since he is somewhat a celebrity in the poker world his opponents will somewhat overcall to get in pots with with so he plays a very straightforward style which might not be the best for you depending on your game.

Gee, from the look of thinks, it seems as if everyone thinks everyone else is Brad Owen in every 1/2 i sit in.
