The issues/points you make are valid to a point.
The points that pantin007 and Philthy make are also Sound.
The key factors to teaching is to learn by doing, and if you scare her off,
with the agressive approach while trying to teach a passive style
there in lies 'the breach in the boat'.
There are some good reads in the Poker Articles
Tab (yeah, on TOP^^)
Beside the Poker Forums
Go there print off some of those to read before any Book..
then check the poker terms on Wikipedia Glossary of poker terms - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
and don't be cheap with the Ink on the printer, and rifle off them pages,
tape them to the Fridge, and by ALL the mirrors in the House..
and Calendars. Or just make a tidy little poker guide for her.
Then have her play the Free Chip Ring tables, then the 9 player Sit&Go's
then the Freeplay MTT's
watch her play and 'BOND'....
let her play her cards without criticism,
give her hints and tips as the action is happening,
explain the possibilities, as they are happening,
why a player 'might' be raising, and what the flop, relative to her
cards is potentially, and the best bet, check, raise or fold is what
'You' would do. In a Freeroll it is of no Loss,
and Sit&Gos allow the place to eliminate players as Ring Game freeplay
has too many donks to really learn,
pick tables that have 3 players seated.
and if the table fills up..move to a small one again.
The dynamics of the game are not cut & Dried A-A, K-K, Q-Q,
A-K, A-Q MPP, LPP, there are other great starting hands
Suited connectors have +EV and hands like 5-7, 6-8, 7-9, 8-10 are also
a very nasty force to be reckoned with..the biggest Pots I win
are using those hands since I call a raise 3xBB with that
and I hit the nut straight on the flop against A-K
and he hits his Ace on the turn hes pushing and I'm Calling All-In.
OR a surprising nut flush with a Q♠9♠ when the flop hits A♠K♠7♠ suited turn hits Q♥
and check/call it down to the river 3♠ with a 4-suited board then a HUGE Bet by a Donk
that has J♠10♥
on a flush/straight draw..Just makes it easier to call the LAG,
and Pop them on the River. A TILT Monster hand!!
~Be patient and Play patient,
Teach patience, By Showing Patience,
Smart Players Prevail...Ignorant Players get beaten
by their own arrogance~
