Just finished first recording with one of the people selected, lasted about two and a half hours when i meant for it to last one!. I think i can probably chop it up and make several episodes out of it. I was super sick and my throat hurt a ton so i think i didn't perform as well as i could chad was super good though.
Will be recording my live play sections soon.
I was lucky enough to be the person selected to feature in the first video. Those of you that haven't yet applied for this could really miss out on an insanely valuable opportunity to probe the minds of two of DC's best players.
The review session with I3bet and Chad lasted over 2 hours and allowed me to pick hands to discuss that highlighted particular theoretical concepts I was struggling with. With every hand discussed we were able to reach an overall conclusion and answers to the questions that I had, as well as covering many tangential scenarios and questions. I was super sad when the guys realised we had been going for 2.5 hours and had to end the video as I could've asked them questions all night long.
I don't want to give too much information away about the hands and concepts covered in the video as everyone can just watch the video when it's released. I'm sure with over 2 hours of footage there'll be something in there to help players at all stakes. The video covered my hands at the 50 euro tables, but the discussion often also took into consideration many "What if" scenarios covering how the thought processes might differ at small and midstakes and against different villains.
I can't thank the guys enough for taking the time to do this with me. Immediately afterwards I felt like a new player with even more thirst and motivation to work on the things we had covered. I would say the key thing I have taken away and can implement straight away is taking the time in game to really think about betsizing in different spots on earlier streets, always taking into consideration my likely hand and villains likely range on the river, and how I can best manipulate the pot to get villain to make the biggest mistake possible. No longer will I just hit the 3/4 pot button vs fish on the flop/turn and think "eh it's probably ok".
There are many more ideas and personal revelations i'd love to discuss in relation to this once in a lifetime opportunity but i'll save them for when the video is released.
In conclusion you can probably tell i'm extremely happy with the whole experience and would recommend I3bet and Chad as coaches/video makers if they ever decide to go down that route in the future. If they do continue to make these free videos then you'd be a fool to not apply to be featured.
Without a doubt the greatest 2 hours of my 6 year poker career ainec.
Now it's time for me to crush 100nl and beyond.
Thanks again guys,
here you go guys
it is 600mb (cut down from 4gb) i know it seems like a lot but its a 2.5 hours video or actually 2.15. Obviously i recommend watching it in two parts.
Id like to apologize for my poor performance in the vid i was feeling VERY under the weather probs the worst i've felt all year + my throat was killing me. So i didn't engage/offer opinions as much as i would have wanted to. Overall i think its not a bad literally first attempt at making a coaching video by me + craig said this before but craig does a better job than me by far.
I hope to get better at it as we progress.
I think i definitely gave wrong opinions on some things watching the vid back back i wont say them until you guys do.
If you have a question for me / chad / Nathan please write it in this thread with the time link on the vid and we will respond.
