Yeah, I get them, too. Some of the info is great and then he throws in some of the "smallball" stuff, which seems to run very contrary to what I practice and my head starts to hurt (RAISE with a 10-7o?!?!?!?!). I've played with the idea of signing up for the VT thing, as the tests and sample lessons were quite interesting, but have made a resolution not to invest in any schools or "clubs" until my bankroll warrants the expenditure (20% of bankroll) which, trust me, is gonna take a while playing freerolls
and micro-stakes SNGs and cash games online.
Although I will say '09 has been good to me so far with a 10% growth in my bankroll over the last two days. I'm not gonna put that into dollars, because it sounds WAY more impressive as a percentage of bankroll.
Y'all have a good day down there in the People's Republic.
