Hi guys,

should I just jump into playing real money or what?
So much info about the poker game that I do not know where to begin.

It depends how much you can afford to play with-

I think it is a good idea to start off at the very lowest micro-limits. This way, you will learn lessons cheaply and improve your game organically.

Also, if you are brand new to the game, I recommend playing limit hold'em for a little while. You don't risk as much money as no-limit and you can learn the basic game mechanics as well.

If you started palying $.10/$.20 limit, even $30 would be sufficient to mess around with-

Good luck!
