    practice practice practice….i live for poker and baseball lol so ive watched plenty of players… my suggestion is read brunsons super system, and brunsons super system 2.. both excellent books for excelling in your game… next sign up for and play satallites… if you get lucky enough and win then you can win seats to real pro tournys

    I’ve been playing semi-professionally for a few years now. Nothing major (like World Series or World Poker Tour events,) just locally. Given how hot poker is these days, you can grind out a living playing small buy-in tournaments and small no-limit cash games. There are so many bad players, you can make a decent amount of money even while playing $50 buy-in tournaments and $1-$2 no-limit hold ’em. If you do want to step it up and try your hand at something bigger, the only thing you can really do is play. You will learn more from experience than from anything else. If you do want to read up on tournament strategy though, I suggest Harrington On Hold Em from Two Plus Two Publishing. There are three volumes, which focus on different aspects of tournament play. The author, Dan Harrington, has won the main event of the WSOP before, and has two other final tables in subsequent years, so he knows what he’s talking about. He lays everything out in an intelligent, yet easy-to-read format. I think it’s the best tool for an aspiring tournament player, other than practice.

    The jump from semi pro to pro is a big one and should not be taken lightly. Keep an eye on a few online guides which help
