Important basic strategy articles.

All of these articles are important, so it would be wrong to suggest that you can get away with skipping 1 or 2 of them and moving on to the broader general strategy articles. However, I would strongly recommend that you play close attention to the bankroll management and position strategy articles, closely followed by the starting hand selection article.

Without good bankroll management you will never be able to win money from poker. On top of that, hands are frequently won and lost based on position and position alone. Table position may not seem like a big deal at the start, but the sooner you recognize its importance the more rapidly your game will improve.
