This is a discussion on Upswing Poker training site within the online poker forums, in the Learning Poker section; Hi all. Any members of this site? If so, what are your thoughts?
They have been sending me free articles every so often and the content
I am not enrolled in the UpSwing Lab or a registered user of the site but like you I am on their mailing list.
As you know Polk is a well established and hightly ranked porfessional poker player which does necessarily translate to being a good coach. I can't tell you much about Ryan Fye the other main contributor to the site. Recently one of their coaches left to start his own training/coahing site and UpSwing is actively looking to replace him. Polk is very internet savvy and markets himself exceptionly well as attested by the number of followers of his YouTube videos on poker and cryptocurrency.
I quentioned a Twitch streamer that I follow and who has an advertisement for UpSwing on her landing page. The answer was that while not having taken any of the courses, was acquainted with Polk and knew several people who had and are enrolled who had nothing but good things to say. For what ever that is worth.
Will you get "bang for your buck" ? I am uncertain. Of the myriad of training/coaching site out there i am of the opinion it is probably one of the better ones. What you will get out of it will depend on your connection with the philosophy and your committment to studying.
While I haven't answered your question directly I hope it provides you with food for thought.

Have any of you heard of the new poker coaching website called Poker Castle? You can get coaching on there from a live coach for under $10 an hour thru a live video conference.
