When new (and not so new) players finally suspect the depth of their ineptitude and ask for help, they are almost invariably sent to sites that either assume a basic fundamental understanding of the game, or are unreliable and inconsistently updated. These players may then incorrectly apply advice they don’t fully understand, or worse yet follow erroneous advice.

This is where we come in. In a valiant effort to break the cycle of ineptitude, we will present the basics (and not-so-basics) of the game to better educate hopeful newbies, and prod recalcitrant old players into reexamining the assumptions they have about the game. Either that, or we will simply bluff and hope our impressive verbiage distracts you.
