So I want to say something and I hope noone takes this personal. I don`t want to harm anyone, but I now few people are thinking like that and are afraid to post it here.
I think it`s very tough to make the decision to become a fulltimepro and it`s even more difficult if everyone can watch you trying it. I really have respect for that.
But two things I want to say:
1. In other places on the net (not here obviously) you see several people talk something like "This donk has stolen a great opportunity from people who would have deserved it". Well that is a little bit hard maybe, but it`s not that far off. Nobody deserves anything of course, but you receive privatecoaching from one of the best mid-high-stakes coaches there are, you are a fulltimepro and have nothing to do than to work work work on your game. But your results are break-even at best after 500K hands (based on pkt and other sites) and not only that; you are tilting away your money every second day. I never saw graphs like this before. Pokerskill is not only the technical thing, I don`t wanna judge that here, although I don`t think you can beat 1/2N 6max, but it`s also the psychology as you know. By that I don`t mean he thinks I think he thinks I suck, but just the ability to play a goddamn abc-game, without playing 10 tables, without tilting everything away, without thinking you can 3times overlevel a regular every hand. So as it seems (I personally don`t know you and Im sorry to say) you suck at this part. Being a Pokerpro is maybe not the right way for you to go. At the end of the series it would be fair to say: "I fail, I didn`t do it, I give up here." But you say things like, 3 months work only for taxes, time, bla, I will get confident in HU..... no you won`t.
That brings me to the second thing I want to say:
2. When I had to manage the kids-group in our chessclub one time, I tried to explain something like that: "See, in the sicilian defence when you play as white you have to goddamn attack. Take the center, sacrifice a knight on e6, rush forward, because in the endgame you have a significant disadvantage because you are missing a central pawn." A week later they all could tell me what I tought them, rush, take the center, attack.... so what was the next move they made? 2. h3?!
What I want to say by this: What is the point in talking about reraise-bluff a River against a reg, because you are on level 4 and he is on level 3 and his range is capped and he assumes you are not capable of bluffing and your history says bla bla bla bla bla......blabla?
I like it. I like to hear that and learn from it if someone like Wilt talks about that. But in this series, where it is all about getting someone to make a little bit of money on 1/2NL or even lower, it`s absolutely not at the right place. How does this change the winrate of WhiteHeatSYD? 0.03% maybe? All the time WHS says something pseudo-intelligent like "I could make it 8 instead of 7 here, because Im representing a much stronger range, blablubbblablubb", but he doesn`t understand what he says, he just repeats and that is so obvious in a lot of the episodes.
In the second week with the chessgroup I wanted to explain why you cannot play Nb3 after Qxb2 in the Najdorf-sicilian, because of a lack in developement, but instead I started with something like "the bishop moves diagonal" and Im sure that was the better way to go.
I did like some hands, but they had nothing to do with this series.
So, although I know a lot of people (also on this site) think like that, this is only my personal and honest opinion and I hope you guys forgive me for telling you all that.
