At what point in your poker 'career' did you or would you consider coaching. I am a HU player winning (for now) moving over to mtt and STSNG. Should I look for coaching or does the internet have the same to offer for free?
Overall is coaching worth the money that they charge hourly rate?

re: Poker & Coaching.
very interesting, i dont think i could be coached into poker. The benefits of it are probably really good. maybe i never thought about it because im playing micros. I would imagine on who the coach is that would define the hourly rate. I wouldnt let a guy a train me unless he was big well know player. My trainer would have to beat me over and over again before i would take advice from him lol thats just me

I would not consider a coach unless you've done a lot of reading first and understand the following "systems" and concepts (and yes, this is completely arbitrary):
