Starting from scratch again

Actually I'm not a "beginner", I've started playing poker a few years ago but never took it seriously. Of course, I already have some knowledge about poker (it is more about MTTs than cash game though) but now (or in the foreseeable future) I want to try once again, this time with more "professional" attitude. So, I have a few questions:

1. What is the best poker site to play microstakes? I mean - the soft field and acceptable rake (yes, I know that rake on that stakes is almost always very high and even NL2 can be tough these days).

2. What is the best online course for cash players? I saw that RYE has a course for micro cash players and the lifetime access costs $97 but I don't know if it's good. Upswing Poker is so expensive and I'm pretty sure it is not worth buying until you move up in stakes.

3. What is the best poker tracker? I know there are 2 main (HM3 and PT4) and the price is almost the same. I'd prefer to have the one which is more simple and clear.

If you playing NL2 PS is probably the best. Rake is 3.15% and there is ton of players.

For the trackers, it really does come down to what you prefer. Both have trials, so check them out and decide for yourself.

What? no way. I was paying a lot more at NL50.

Yeah I'm sorry, for some reason I thought you were talking about 3bb/100, not the % of the pot.

Ok, so clearly PokerStars is the best for microstakes (Party is 5%, GGNetwork is 5%, 888 is 5%, ACR is 5%, and other sites are too small to even take them into consideration).

I know, the problem is I think I've already used both a few years ago - it didn't want to work with my PokerStars client so I actually never got to try them. Can I use trials again with other e-mail without having any issues later?

The question about courses is still valid but most likely I will go for RYE, I didn't find anything better with lower price so far.

Email their support and explain your situation. I wouldn't be surprised if they give you an extra month.

Re: Starting from scratch again

I concluded that it doesn't make any sense to purchase courses until I start to play at least NL10 - can someone recommend me any good free learning materials? Other than BlackRain79 site and his youtube videos because I already know it.
