I recently (6 months ago) learned the game of NL Texas
Holdem. I started playing with friends at a home game once a week. For the first 2 months, I was lucky if I broke even or cashed out with less than my buy-in. It was decided that in order to improve my game I needed to learn some basics from outside sources. So I bough a few books, and began applying what I learned. Shortly after, I began consistently making money at the home games. I gave the local poker room a shot and cashed out in 2/5 tournaments I played, generating more profit. Since then I opened two online accounts and have been playing mostly everyday with a lot of fluctuation with my initial buy-ins. Win, lose, up, down. I want to continue learning the game and become a better player, but I feel once again I need outside help. Which leads me to the point of my ramble. How does one go about getting a poker coach? What does having one entail? Can anyone guide me in the right direction on this? Any information on the subject would be greatly appreciated. Also, if it makes a difference I prefer MTT over cash or SnG games.
