I think this post could be interesting for beginners.

I've so far failed quite a few times in my daily "missions" from Rules of the Game by Neil Strauss. I'm stuck at the fingers routine part. Rules of the Game is all about indirect openers and coming in under the radar.

However, I've been seeing a lot of videos and various pick up artists just using Direct Game and jumping right to the point. My question is this: Is it really necessary to go through Indirect Game and canned openers before doing Direct Game? Will I be less good at it if I don't start with Indirect?
