There is a phrase that is used a lot in soccer and that is that in general who has been a good player is not a good coach, and that the best coaches have been bad soccer players. I suppose this would apply to other sports as well.
Now, my question is, considering the fashion of poker coaching, is a coach a bad player who teaches well? Is it true, in our beloved discipline the same as in other sports?
I suppose there will be exceptions.
I would love to read your opinions.
Thanks for always being there.

that's the throuth about everything.
The best coaches are one of the bad players or cooks, or ....
you name it.
But, they have great ability to transfer the knowledge to someoene, so they don't need to be the greatest players, chefs, etc...
