The ~$25 you pay monthly is a STEAL. yeah, looking at the hundreds you spend over a year or whatever looks expensive, but you're essentially getting coached by the biggest winners online.
I hate to spam other sites, but stox has easily been the biggest catalyst to my improvement and I can't say enough about it. I was actually going to contact nick about making some kind of partnership with them like 2p2 has, but I just don't see how a smaller site like us can do it successfully.
They're kind of like the cardschat of coaching sites - the coaches are all great people, and will even give you personal advice if you PM them. A lot of the members who post regularly in the forums are mid-high limit players who are also great and happy to give advice. It's like 2+2 without the assholes.
I could go on, but trust me when I say it's worth it. Especially for someone like you who's moving on to the low and mid limits.
fwiw CC has been a lot more active lately, and although you won't find the experience here, I'd say if you're tight on money, don't worry about stox. Anyways I'm like %99 satisfied with stox. I was actually planning on writing a review on the blog, so maybe this would be a good time.

If they know wonderful techniques that aren`t to be found in the books and magazines on my bookshelf (or on CC for that matter), how come they are not out there making millions at the high-stakes tables ? Why would they instead waste their time trying to get a paltry few dollars from you and me ?
Smells of fish, IMO.
They do make millions.

Them posting videos is like the equivalent of us posting advice and videos here. I don't think they get paid enough for it to be significant for them - it's like the equivalent of the money we get paid here (nothing ), but the discussion and the videos help both their game and the games of others, so they do it.
This site isn't some scam. Like I said, I call it the CC of coaching sites. Definitely look into it if you're looking to improve your game and can afford the modest monthly fee. Just don't ditch cardschat for it
Oh, use my referral too
