re: Poker & Cashing a Final table
Brings up a good point - be sure you know the role of your coach (and of course that he knows as well). There a bunch of guys out there who think they are going to teach you poker and call themselves coaches. All they are doing is regurgitating books and videos. I just finished a session with a guy who would just parrot Ed Miller - hod no interest in hearing from me or how I might play. So how the hell does he know what needs fixin?
IMO I thibnk the first thing a good coach (a real coach) is gong to do is say, "Let's see what you got..." Or start asking questions. I am fortunate to have a midstakes player who will take the time to sweat me and isn't worried about if I get my feelings hurt. He is solely responsib;e for cleaning up a handful of tells
I had and other things that make me more difficult to read than before.
I would not get a coach to inherent general and public information, but get one who is specific to what you are doing. Ohterwise I am in total agreement with F4STFORW4RD - do your own reading and studying (not the role of a coach).
