A Huge Opportunity....Thanks to DC

Well I can now come clean as everything is sorted.

A few weeks ago I approached Pokerstrategy.com as they were looking for English-Speaking talent to add to their coaching staff as they continue to expand. After submitting a Poker CV, appropriate graph and test video they have agreed to take me on as a Gold Level Coach (That’s 3/6 and below for those that don’t know).  I'm also Hand Judging for them atm.

This is an enormous opportunity for me to build a community over there as the LHE Gold community is still rather small, at least Forums-wise but is expanding and there are a ton of silver level guys (0.5/1 and 1/2) who I can help towards the 2/4 and 3/6 levels along with the micro-stakes guys.

None of this would have been possible without the support and help of the Deucescracked community that I have received over the past 3 years, giving special mention to guys like Entity (who managed to sit through 9 videos with me despite me ribbing him constantly about his complete aversion to Microsoft products) Pygmyhero and Lysistrata, (housed me in the States and have been great friends as well as poker buddies) obviously BBB who nurtured a rather frightened confused 0.5/1 player into someone a major strategy site was willing to take on as a coach and finally to all you guys in the LHE forums who have provided hands to chew over and LC/NC to laugh over. You guys are the best there is in my opinion.

I’ve known about this for about 2 weeks now but there were a couple of things I wanted to confirm before I let everyone know.

One of which was this blog:

I am allowed to keep this blog but it’ll mainly be LC/NC stuff, but then again that’s pretty much all it’s ever been anyway and I’ll mirror it elsewhere along with some poker content.

Secondly I am NOT leaving this community. In my mind that’d be cut & running and disrespectful to everyone at large. Yes I have responsibilities now and obviously my employers come first to me but I’m not exactly banned from posting elsewhere. I’ll still be around and I’ll still be on Skype etc so in my mind very little is going to change except I may be a little more busy than usual and finally I have an excuse to get off my arse and actually play some bloody poker. I’ve never really been one for post count whoring anyway.

My first few vids should be out in October and I’ll hopefully be doing some group sessions as well in the fullness of time, but for now I’ll just say thanks once again and I’ll be catching you soon.

Cheers, Boomer

Congrats!...but wait...does this mean you will no longer have time to do a free video review of my sweet limit skillz?

I'll always have time for that Tecmo :)

I'll probably be doing some free video reviews as part of my vids over there so can't see why I wouldn't do one for my DC buddies :)
