Micro/nano stakes strategy - good analog for the ring games here. Both of these worth a read if you want to get an idea of the differences between “standard” poker and micro-stakes games. They are different.

It is not that hard if u play enough. I can only recommend play a lot, I’ve started playing Facebook poker… And read a lot. There is always somthing new to learn. This is good article about basics of math behind poker. Poker strategy But my opinion is, that poker is much more about yours temper and patience than about strategy…

This is a SUPER book If you ONLY read & utilize the first 3 chapters, You will have a much better game

Just ran across this guy on YouTube - easy to digest tips that should help many players here. Here is a link to beating loose games but his entire channel is similar:

FYI, at around 12:30 into the video, he addresses the topic of how/why strong preflop hands (AA, KK …) are so frequently beat in loose games.
