I've decided to try coaching and I'll be taking one student to see how things go. I won't be charging anything because I have limited experience coaching. I will guarantee at least 3 free lessons and we'll take it from there.
I will be coaching 6max or headsup, up to 50NL. I play 200 and 400NL myself, you can check out my 6max or headsup results for this year or PTR, although the latter is far from accurate and is missing a lot of hands.
I ask from you that you:
- are serious about improving your poker game
- are willing to experiment with your game and try out new things
- can put in at least 2 hours of serious study in per week
- have a mic, skype, HEM and mikogo/teamviewer
- can speak English
I will not be doing sweat sessions because I don't think they're particularly useful. What I do recommend is video reviews and hand history discussion. Video reviews allow us to freeze time and talk about various permutations in the hand. What would you do with a different hand? What do you think villain thinks of you? How does this influence our perceived range? Are there any better lines that we can take with our hand? It's questions and topics like these that will improve your thought process in various spots and allow us to improve your game to the point where you feel confident enough to move up.
If you're interested, shoot me a PM or fill in the survey and tell me why I should pick you. I will be taking a maximum of 20 applications. After that I'll pick one student and start coaching. Or sooner.
