I’ve started to study the intricacies of the game more and honestly I considered getting a poker coach or getting a membership to a poker coaching website with interactive hands but I’m not sure I mainly use my phone. Does anyone have a website they visited or book they read that enhanced there understanding for the game. Pro players that have good online coaching would be much appreciated as well. Thanks:)

Review your hand history and watch winning poker players.

Try to improve the game with programs, this is a really effective method. See how top players play, if you are at high limits, playing at micro-limits is different because opponents use different strategies. It is also important that you want to play cash or tournaments.

Daniel Negreanu, without a doubt, my inspiration.

I am like two CIS Streamers

Alohadance and Arthas

Alohadance playing with good hand or bluff

Arthas playing very agressive,
he's like steal blind,open raise with 2 10,
and bet all-in and get a good stack

My results: 28/1000 EPT SOCHI
300/5000 POKERDOM / POKERMATCH
500/4000 CasinoOrg Freeroll

Agressive holdem player: lildxxdec (me)

Thanks for all feedback:):):)

I don't pay that much attention to other poker pros to be honest. I mostly focus on teaching the best micro stakes strategies to my own students.

But I do think there is tons of great high level material out there these days on various training sites, in books, streamers and so on.

I wish all that was available when I was first learning the game!

All good players ;)

The really funny thing about it though: I sometimes catch myself playing like whoever I am studying in the moment. If I have recently been studying Hellmuth, then I sometimes catch myself playing really tight and being aggressive with my post-flop play. If I have been studying Negreanu, then I sometimes catch myself playing "small ball poker" and taking stabs at some blinds and antes. If I have been studying Johnathan Little, then I sometimes catch myself calling off players with my Ace-high (usually correctly!) because of the GTO situation we are in.

I don't think this is necessarily a bad thing, but by studying so many players: I think it is important to find "your own style" somewhere down the line. For me, I've been discovering my own natural play-style and using other pro "styles" as like "gears" I can shift into to exploit others at the table.

I believe there is a lot of value in studying many good players because they are all good at poker for a reason. They all share many winning techniques and mindsets in common. You should adapt to these yourself too. The differences among each pro "styles" simply illustrates that poker is not a straight-forward game where only one single strategy is potentially successful.

I like watching Twitch streams and YouTube. Matthew Staples is great at explaining what he's doing each hand and why he's doing it. Gripsed is too. I think you can learn a lot just by watching them play.

improving the game with programs is a good idea.
For my part, I watch professional players' games.
