i watched already the haj school and started now with from the ground up but what should i watch next?
maybe its handy to state what type of games you play, what stakes, for how long, etc etc
tell us some more about yourself (pokerwize)
this way we get a good idea of where you are at and can recomend some more usefull things like the ones already stated in here, good luck !
ok i play NL10 6max and started with poker three years ago.. but nothing serious, just joking around and played some hands.. after an injury i´ve had to stop my pro sport career.. so i decided to start playing poker again.. lost about 250$ and then i decided to join pokerstrategy.. but no one helped me there.. than a friend of me told me men join deucescracked and find a way threw the pokerworld to learn all about this as fast as possible! at the moment i have so much time and can do many theory but im not sure whats the best plan... so i need some help.. i need to be performed a little bit threw all the stuff what should i learn at the beginning and so on.. something like a trainingplan! 4h theory for every day would be perfect! because than i can compensate the time what i´ve trained every day! hope for some help because on pokerstrategy no one wanted to help me... they just said don´t try it and things like that.. but im sure i can do it if i will get some help!
thank you to all who posted already!

Reminds me of Leatherass. Treat poker like a sport and you'll do fine.
I don't think it matters what series you start with as much as paying attention, taking notes, and making sure you really learn the content. If it were me, I'd probably start with Baluga's videos (coaching tree, coaching kristy), and that's based on you having experience already which it sounds like you do.
First thing is really to think about what you expect from poker and make sure you have avoided setting yourself unrealistic (or even a bit too optimistic) goals. This is by far the most subjective part though and it is all about self-knowledge. Basically, it is all about adopting the right attitude and getting as motivated as possible without that hindering your out-of-poker life.
Since you are just to start, it is really good to decide which site you will play on and where you will start from (if you have lost your bucks on 10NL, then starting from a lower level should be the right thing to do). Just put in some thought, choose a site with good rewards (bonuses and/or rakeback, preferably both).
Dedicating time to theory is awesome, just make sure you get a lot of time on the tables as well. Even with some theoretical gaps, you can start at the lowest level, play fairly tight and adopt new approaches as you get more educated.
Studying - I think I can highly recommend the "+EVolution of a Poker Player" videos. From what I remember, this one, "From the Ground Up" and "Mathematics of NLHE" cover a very good deal of basic stuff. I am going to watch them again in the next few weeks. Once you think you can watch something else, you can pick up another uNL series.
More about studying - active involvement and discussing hands with other people. Check the "Secret HQ" section, find someone to talk poker with, discuss hands in Skype, sweat, etc.
Read hands in forums, post, discuss, ask.
And, not to be underestimated, play a lot. Teh pokerz (ed: uNL pokerz, I mean xD) is soo much about being able to sit on your bottom parts in long hours, concentrated and calm, clicking various buttons (mostly the "Fold" one).
+1 on everything that has been written above.
but one think i didnt see trough the posts.
And i would have LOVED it if someone told me this when i first started out.
And it is : GET TILTLESS AS FAST AS POSSIBLE !!!
this is really super super important, you can go years with tilt and loose or win waaaaay less then you are supposed to, just because of tilt, if you can start your poker carreer with starting to work against your tilt, you will have a super big edge on players that has nothing to do with strategy and what not, but it will make you a lot better player in the future.
check out : eight fold path to poker enlightnenenmenbt (whatever), the mental game (jared tendler's book, its awesome), some other series like tolerance by threads13 is pretty interesting.
And there are probably a lot of other things that you can view, but EFPTPE & mental game are 2 of the biggest imo
Really take a half hour a day to train this, you will thank me later on
i think i dont have unrealistic goals.. just want to earn some money by putting so many energy as possible in the game... i´ve sended out many applications to get a job but the problem is many people think oh he turned pro and now he have an injury why he don´t start a trainer career and its hard with 3 years of of pro sport in your curriculum vitae to get a normal job.. so i was thinking what can i do to stop thinking about my injury.. i´m not talented in singing or some else.. but i have the will to train and work hard as i have done for soccer.. so i think to treat poker like soccer is a good option.. the 4h theory should be my training and to play poker my match..
i already watched the haj school... now started with from the ground up.. but im not sure what should i do next.. maybe i will go done for a while to NL4 and crush this limit and then go up!
play as much as possible and post hands where you are having troubles with (that was the most helpfull in my starting proces, way more helpfull then the videos, def when playing nanostakes).
what soccer team did you play, you are pro & are injured, you should still be payed right...
you signed a contract, injured or not...
but thats offtopic.. im looking forward and need something i can do now.. and this is poker.. i will treat it like soccer.. do the same as i´ve done with soccer.. train every day hard(theory) and play every day.. maybe some people will say thats stupid.. but i think DC is the right site to get as fast as possible threw this whole stuff and the world of poker.. i need just a path on which i can go.. some people who can lead me as my trainers done..
i already must say thanks to all this people who posted here!
