I decided to leave DC, because the content isn't really working for me anymore. It's not that I feel like I am this awesome player that can't use a training site anymore, but since Rob/entity asked me in my blog what I think should be changed, I am willing to make some suggestions despide the fact I made be berated (since that's the new thing at DC)
1.) There need to be forum moderators. A week ago some guy called me a poker genius (on a very sarcastic way) because it took me two years to beat small stakes. No matter if that is true or not, comments like that I never saw a year ago. I would hate to see DC turning in a twoplustwo kind of thing, where people feel uncomfortable posting so I think it would be nice to have some people that are willing to browse the forums to delete the trash (there goes some of the members post counts)
2.) I think the content is getting a bit too much of the same lately. The old skool coaches aren't really making any new stuff or they are repeating what already has been said a lot (i am thinking about coaching kristy), and the new coaches just don't bring that much new content. I think that making series of 8 was a great idea for some time, but now it's just feels like a "how the hell do we make 8 videos out of this". I rather see a 3 video series on 1 particulair subject (like c-betting, or leading flops, or check raising..etc, you get the idea) then another 8 video series where a sweat video is being recorded. The DC shorts was awesome, and I think DC could go way deeper with this.
I think DC has to much of sweat videos, and too little theory videos. I am just not going to look at another 60 minutes of somebody playing poker, while I could check out a 30 minutes theory video that I choose to watch because I know its about a subject I want to learn about.
It would already be a major difference if a coach recorded a sweat video and tell beforehand he is going to focus his sweat session on one particulair subject, altho this is prob. very hard to do.
I understand that making series is a big part of what DC seperates from the rest, but lately, it just hasn't been that impressive. A lot to look forward too, but in the end.. not much result.
3.) New members should have a really good guide where to start at DC. There is a video guide, but that one is a. hard to fine. and b. you need to know yourself well.
A lot of people start at DC no idea what to watch, and they end up making the wrong choices for their game. At the same time, i do think there is enough beginners stuff to check out, a lot of advanced stuff to check out, but a short of in between stuff to check out.
just my two cents.
