I've read SSHE about a year ago and it helped a lot, but it's probably time for a reread since i wasn't ready for everything. Thing is that the swedish version (it got it real cheap) was riddled with hands that didn't make sense in context with the text due to poor translation.

I use a database but not a hud due to lack of computing power. As an unemployed mediocre poker player anew computer isn't really top priority either. But I'll check on the regulars.

Lately I've been trying to steal more and more, but at the wrong times, like against the calling stations. I mainly learned that it's not a style I'm comfortable witg right now. I need too ease into these things. Right now it just puts me on tilt when I won't give them credit to a check raise when they flopped two pair with crap. Better just ease into it, read more and get comfortable with in instead of being pissed at some guy calling with crap when that's the kind of players that give me their money in the long run.

Add reading more about blind defense to my to do list. Check

i have a pdf of sshe, and possibly hfap somewhere if you can't find them in english. you could always shell out $30 but it seems like the sucker play.

That's about what I'm using. The hud is probably more or less the same, but the client software should be more demanding now. And when multi tabling at everest, where i play the most, the PT hud just isn't that good, unless you like tables popping to the front whenever it's your turn.

Save it until I say something really retarded. It'll probably happen sooner or later. There's a reason i waited a year before starting to post here, instead of wondring about things asked and answered a million times before. Btw how do i caluculate pot odds when i know my outs?
