I do play cash games occasionally, but I couldn't really explain as to why I'm making that move, I mean I know why, but I wouldn't know how to explain it. (Talk to ChuckTs if you want help with cash games, I'm sure he could give you a tip or two) Take a look at this thread and you will see what I'm talking about.
I had umm, maybe 7 or 8 students, I pretty sure all of them learned a thing or two. Of course I have got a lot better and have improved my game a lot since last month and plus I have been doing a lot of hu lately and got good at that too. Well as for you question, I didn't charge anyone anything, but when one of my students, Shrog did send me some after I helped him win a 5$ mtt, which I guess was cool of him. Well if you are interested, I could probably coach you through a tourney or two, but of course if you want to learn more then we would have to talk about that in private.
What do you guys think of some of the online "poker schools" out there? What are the good ones? Most build curricula through the use of videos. One that I know of - deuces stacked - has the option of hiring a private coach. In just browsing, I saw one guy charged $75. It didn't specify if that was per hour.
Well poker schools are pretty cool imo, I know of few, stoxpoker, deuces one you are talking about, card runners, and pokerxfactor. Imo, stox and cardrunner are more for cash games and deucses and pokerxfactor are more for mtts. If I had to pick one of them, I would go with pokerxfactor, mainly because of Johnny Bax, he is a beast in mtts. I'm pretty sure the private coaches charge 75$ per hour.
I'd like to be a better player, too. I've read many books, I play a lot (not enough if you ask me, way too much if you ask my wife), and I usually know why I'm making the move that I do. I've finally gained the ability to get away from most "what the hell?" shoves. I've had modest success in the CardsChat tourneys. Cash games are up and down. It seems like I run into "fad of the week" players. Currently it's those who won't fold no matter what. I know, I know - I should like it. But it's damned hard to put an opponent on a hand when their play makes no sense. That makes me prone to stepping into traps when they finally do get a hand.
Well the wayI put people on a hand is by their betting pattern position and I guess just my gut feeling.
I ask questions here and I learn a lot. I don't want to offend anybody by omission, but I find allingeniuse's posts especially illuminating. AllienGenius is a donk cough cough, lol jk, well we always go back and forth at each other if we are on table lol. Well you can learn a lot just by reading and watching, and I can prove that from my own experience.
So what's my best course from here? Just more education and discipline? Can I benefit from a coach? How to find the right one?
