I would love to do this, however he is an old school guy. He's An older gentlemen, does not have access to internet, but is very intelegent. I've already found his leaks and started plugging them right away.
He is a complete noob, I can't even say fish bc fish have some idea of how the game works, but my student doesn't. I wanted to have a sweat session at the live table and I didn't even need to see his cards to know that he is clueless about poker.
The positive tho, he has a sick poker face. Very difficult to get a read, he is not scared to play, bet, raise, be Agro.
Then again he would look at his hand like a game of pitch BJ lifting his cards up so everyone can see. I was shocked that I had to actually explain to him to cover/protect his hand.
He's a smart guy just super new to poker.
What would be some good books to start him with? I did my beginner studies for CC but from ebooks. I need to find a hard copy of a beginner cash game book.
If anyone can help here I woulde appreciate it.
