Now to the fun part what will this group do?
1] Hand History Discussions: This will consist of members talking to each other on Skype while discussion hands posted on the DC forums. I ran a poker group before and I can tell you I learnt a lot doing this.
2] Home Games: We have to have some fun now donâ€™t we? 6 Max PLO home games at 2nl for kicks and giggles
3] Member Video/Session Review: This is where a member records a live play video and we review his play or we review a memberâ€™s session in HEM
4] Sweat Session: We break into groups of 2 or 3 and watch a member play live while discussing his play. For beginners it can be hard to concentrate on playing during sweat sessions since most decisions are not standard or have not been thought out in advance so we might refrain from doing these initially.
5] The Classroom: This is where I kind of take the roll of a teacher and I will give sort of a brief PowerPoint covering a video series followed by discussion and questions to clear any doubts we have. Ending with homework and a quiz. At the end of every episode there will be a quiz and the end of every video series there will be a test and at the end of every month or so we will have exams. I will also have pop quizzes to make sure you are watching the videos. If I find out you are not watching the videos and taking notes you will be out to make room for a more dedicated member. As a rule I will not send my PowerPointâ€™s and notes since I want you to make your own notes DC follows this policy and so will I. Our goal here will initially be to get through these playlist http://www.deucescracked.com/playlists/65281 & http://www.deucescracked.com/playlists/74971
6] Weekly Reviews: We want each other to improve and we want to help each other. You have a problem discuss it here be it poker related or not. Poker can be hard and can be damn near impossible if youâ€™re constantly on life tilt. I am in no way perfect in fact far from it. I have issues with Self discipline and Motivation but am working and taking steps to improve. Here is where we will discuss how to improve in the non poker areas that have affect on our game like Tilt.
