I recommend Dan Harringtons books along with Super System. They will help your game a lot.
To be fair there 2 good recommendations. Join a training site it would probably be more beneficial than a book

The overwhelming consensus seems to be that the training sites >>>>>>> any of the books.

So basically your money would be better spent on a sub.

Most of the training sites have some free vids to get you started, but you generally have to subscribe to get all their best stuff.

Some of them do free week long trials though, for example I know leggo poker does.

Winning at small stakes

i have being playing poker for about 18 months now just started off as an recreational player on small stakes and prob donked away a few quid at the start while getting to grips with online poker, i didnt take bankroll mangement seriously till prob last autum cause i donked away bout 50 quid on ppp, so i studied a few training videos esp on bankroll mangement, and deposited 20 dollars on ppp and stuck to playing small stakes mtts, because im better at them den sit n goe and cash, so far my bankroll is at 250 dollars so ive had a good retturn on investment from my $20 deposite in sept 2010, but i also play on full tilt and im finding it tougher there, i deposited $80 around the middle of nov 2010 but find it a struggle there im down to $40 atm, i mostly play mtts there as well, so i would just like to know from guys playing small stakes if they are beating there level and what games do they find most profitable (cash, mtts, sngs)?

It's the Bad Beat/Moan/Vent thread.

Started off as somewhere to put all the beats and brags etc, and has evolved into a combination of wiki and google. If you need a question answered, go there. If you want to post some pics of sexy women, go there. If you want to post youtobe vids, go there. It's just an off-thread with well over 100k posts

BBV stands for Bad Beats/Venting and Moaning Thread (not the best acronym to be fair) and is the enormous and ever growing off-topic thread at the heart of the IPB Community.

The topics are varied and the general discourse can rage wildly from deep political discussions to "Lol, you're sporting team sucks while mine remains supreme" type discussions to the ever popular post-watershed MichelleSatNav says dirty things to strangers themed evenings Friday-Sunday after 11pm.

It can be found as the top sticky in the General Poker section of IPB and is always the most active thread on the site over any 24 hour period so should almost always be in the "Top Threads" section of the front page.

BBV stands for Brags, Beats & Variance IMO.

Depends if u want to stake or be staked.
Afaik there are no rules about giving stakes.
There are rules in the sticky thread at the top of the staking section about recieving stakes (min 30 post/member 2 months etc.)

Ok, I'll try to get some posts in (not very good at this mind) ! Anyhow i dont mind staking the odd player, see how it goes. If i wanted to be staked in future could i use poker prolabs to show my online results as i only play online ?
