So last week i finished my groupcoaching sessions with blah234.
And i have to say, im really amazed of the amount of knowledge you can gain in only 6hr.
Nan is a really good coach in the way that :
a. he understand perfectly what he is talking about
b. It hasnt been such a long time since he moved out of the micros (so he has great experience)
c. He really takes his time to explain things we have questions with
d. He knows how to coach (i know a bunch of good poker players but only a few are able to really explain it in a simple way)
e. i can continue a long list
The thing i liked the most is that he doesnt teach us the ABC poker, he really teaches us to think outside of the box in the most +EV way, he doesnt say, you should play that hand in such a way, he asks us, why would this play be better then that way ?
WHY INSTEAD OF HOW !!!
He is really mathematicly & makes us think in a way we get a better view on what the best (most +ev) play is.
I really enjoyed the group format because in the micros we tend to have all kind of the same leaks and things we can improve + you meet people that are willing to push hard to get to the next level & its really motivating, and you have them in your skype so you can keep talking & discussing even when the coaching is over (like we did, we kept t he group together & now do a vid review every week).
It really learned me allot talking to him about all kind of different spots.
The group might continue the coaching sessions mid januari when me & some other guys finish there 1-1 coaching. So pretty excited about that
Coaching sessions looked like : 30-45min of theory explained by nan, then we could ask some questions.
After that another 45-1hr of hand review from each member in the group.
Nan would ask us to all give our opinion on the hand & then he would say what he wouldv done.
All super interesting & looking forward to our next meeting mid januari
- Group session
- 4 students per group
- 4 sessions of +1.5hr
- Talk about hands & spots on skype <- this was really the nutz
- $300, bit on the higher side for microstakes player, but its like $50/hr of intense coaching + the fact that he is active on skype makes it peanutz for what you can learn !
I really recomend it to every micro/small stakes player, even if you think you dont need it, you will really gain a lot of knowledge out of this.
and if you think $300/6hr is a lot for a microstakes player, well, it really isnt 6hr, a month long have i been able to ask him everything i need to know, he was alwayz active on skype & really put in a lot of time to help us. Even now that the group coaching is over he still is active in our skype group (less then before but still wanting to improve our games & coach us outside of the coaching package!)
One thing i wanted to add, i told nan this, but it might be handy, if when you explain your theory, that you take a hand history as example to the theory that you are explaining.
Because sometimes in the coaching sessions its hard to really take in everything you say, because its so much information (best thing is to record & then write a word document review or rewatch a couple of times to really get the information down)
but it would be nice if you put in an example while you are explaining.
Thx again for all the shared knowledge
