If you want to improve at no-limit hold'em, you should probably just focus on playing that.

By playing limit hold'em, you may develop habits that are bad at no-limit. My advice is to figure out which type of game you want to play and try to improve at it.

Limit and no limit are very different;but the basic ideas of :play selection;pot odds;position;player observation are the same.It's better to play micro limit no limit until you really can read and properly bet the cards,also a lot of pros to to micro limit when they're tilting-so one can face good players.

Low suited connectors and suited gaps are not very good cards in no limit and its better not to play them unless you're throwing people off by varying your play. Go here for real advice on no limithttp://www.flopturnriver.com/essays_...ps_0_to_2.html

i completely disagree that low suited connectors arent very good. Maybe not in longhand, but when you're playing short or heads up, they jump WAY up in value. heads up, if you have a suited connectors and need one card for your flush after the turn, the chances of your opponent also holding 2 of the same suit is low.

Noooooooooooo.
SH favours high cards over drawing hands. Suited connectors are best in LH games, where you're getting better pot odds to call.

Hmm...that makes sense i guess...didnt reallythink of that. Regardless, suited connectors seem to do me just fine in SH...but i understand what you're saying completely.

Yep, that really was terrible advice. I'm glad I didn't read things like this when I started playing NL.

I didn't say they weren't playable in SH. It's critical to remember that hard and fast rules don't exist. Starting hand guides are just that - guides, not rule books.
