What's up guys - I noticed that a majority of the posters in this forum
are playing the micros, and I'd like to extend a special offer to you
guys for a limited time. My usual rate is $75/hr and may soon increase
to $100/hr. For April only, I will offer $50 coaching sessions to Deuces
members who are playing full ring cash games up to 50nl.
I feel that many players spend way too much time toiling in the micros, or perhaps never get beyond them. My goal is to help students move up and beyond their expectations - I believe that being a winning player at 100nl is possible for 90+% of the students I have had, if they are willing to invest their time and effort.
My coaching can be tailored to the students desire - HEM or PT3 review, HH review, session review, theory discussion, it's all fair game. If you want to leave it up to me, I usually will first check your largest relevant sample in HEM or PT3 for basic leaks and go from there. I have rebuilt the games of several micro players lately, players who thought they were solid and just unlucky, but who actually had a bunch of obvious leaks. I am quite sure they have already paid off their lessons by leak busting and increasing their theoretical understanding.
I have been a coach at DC for nearly 3 years, feel free to reference some of my recent videos if you haven't before. Here are my results for 100 and 200nl FR regular tables in 2011 so far -

If you are interested, please PM me and I will respond promptly.
In other news I have been playing on Stars again the past few days, because for whatever reason I have an eternal runbad at FTP and I've given up trying to fight it. Just needed a change of scenery and Stars is treating me well so far. I've been trying to polish up my PTR on Stars for coaching purposes. It was always a secondary site to me that I kinda screwed around on and dumped money. My 100 6max winrate was horrible, I was down $1400 in like 10k hands, and I've made it my mission to turn that around. I've already got it down to -$390 in about 5k hands. I'm quite pleased with the games on Stars, at any time of day there are more fishy 100nl games than I can handle. It's actually been tough sticking to playing 8 or less tables because there's usually 30+ great tables going. I don't want to autopilot click buttons and grind though, part of forcing myself to play 6max and less tables is to work on my game. I am liking that 6max gives me many more opportunities to make non-standard plays, and more chance of tilting/owning people. Metagame basically advances much faster at 6max and I think that benefits my aggressive style.
