So, after my session with baluga yesterday, ive been playing my best poker since january, wich is kind of sick imo. But if you have ever had a session with him you know what im talking about, he just picks on your mind, making YOU talk about why you did this and why you did that and then it comes a simple little question and like magic you sit there and have nothing to say but "i have no idea why i did that, that is just wrong". A perfect example of this is from our very first session when i played 100nl back in jan-09 (i wasnt the best player then i can tell you that) Â and I folded what i think was something like middle pair on the flop and he asks "why". I started talking about some stuff and suddenly i said "i just think he is going to bluff me so often, that I cant call". wich makes no sense at all obv. So this is an advice for all of you who plays lowstakes, start to write down your thought about things, or even better start talking about every little spot that you get into. And ask yourself why why why.
The best thing from this coaching session tho, was that I got my confidence back, I just know that i will crush these games now, nothing can stop me.
Also, the question about somtimes calling AK AQ etc oop vs 3b. I can tell you this, its not a question for me anymore, it makes sense.
