Hi everyone!

My name is Niko and I am new to the forums and relatively new to online poker and poker in general. I have only started playing two weeks ago, but I already love it! I've read a lot of newbie strategy articles and I really appreciate your guide and the forums! I even played in Sunday's freeroll at bodog and came in 103rd out of 220-something! ;)

I know a little theory by now, but I need a lot more practise to put it to the table. Some days ago, I came across this website that offers one-to-one online coaching for unskilled players.

Below I've pasted some info from their website. It sounds like it was the perfect thing for me to impove relatively easily.

What's the catch? I have to use their referral code to sign up for a poker site and deposit. Well, I wanted to create an account at Party or Titan Poker anyway, so that doesn't seem like too much to me.

Do you have any thoughts or comments on this? Do you think this is a scam?

Ok, here goes:

As a member, you will have your personal online poker coach! Your poker coach will help build your bankroll, learn the best online poker strategy, and lead you the way to a healthy income. If you are looking for poker help, you have come to the right spot.
Our System
This one of a kind "system" has three very important levels each with its own key aspects. This can lead to supplemental income which you can use for the rest of your life.

Level 1: Patience, position, and discipline
Most players start out with the wrong hands to begin with and find them in situations that they don't know how to get away from. The level 1 teaches the proper starting hands along with ones to definitely stay away from. The two P's are the key to mastering this level. The 2P's are patience and position which are both powerful tools. This stage takes awhile to master but the benefits are enormous and essential to moving on the next stage.

The seven Golden rules to winning with our system are first addressed here and continued throughout the other two levels. Learn money management with our one of a kind bankroll chart which will keep you from ever losing your whole bankroll. This is not a quick rich scheme...it takes practice and masterful studying of the game of poker. We will be with you every step of the way.

Level 2: Blind stealing/position
This level continues to build on everything you learned from level one with teaching the ideas of blind stealing and position to the extreme. This level expands on the number of hands played but the same golden rules still hold true. It works more effectively at the higher stakes tables so your bankroll must fit accordingly.

Level 3: No Limit and Tournaments
After dominating cash ring games for awhile, you might be tempted to play some No Limit games as a change of pace. We will show you everything you need to know to dominate these games as well.
FAQ

How much money does your system cost?

It's free!

How do you make money?

The reason we are helping average players become winners is because when you deposit money into an online poker room…we will get paid by that poker room. The more you play, the more money that online poker room makes. In order for that to happen, the player must be winning! There are many online poker strategy sites that will give you hints on how to win in hopes that you sign up with an online poker room. We are the only website helping you every step of the way. The only incentive for us is to have you winning as much as possible. We will do everything possible to make that happen. The longer you are winning, the more you will want to play. It becomes a win-win scenario!

How do I find out if a poker consultant is right for me?

Simply email us and tell us your situation. The more honest you are….the better.

What happens when I sign up using the bonus code?

You will receive Level One of our three level system to dominating the online poker world. You will also receive access to our private forum. This is where players post about their results and talk about strategy using the system. Players will also receive a deposit bonus from our sponsored poker rooms.

How much money do I need to start using the system?

Our poker consultants will tell you the more money you start with the better. But, not everyone has $500 lying around to start playing. Remember, the more money you start with, the more money you will have for the deposit bonus. Realistically, it is best to start with $100 or more to see immediate results.

Why do you say playing poker is like running a business?

Playing poker takes patience, zero emotions, money management, and a willingness to learn from mistakes. All of these traits are similar to running a small business.

What will my poker consultant do for me?

Your assigned consultant will be with you for as long as you want. After you receive Level One of our system, a poker consultant will be in contact via email. You will schedule a time for an initial consultation via phone or instant message. This is where you will tell your coach what you like to play and your monthly goals. In a sense, it will be you and your poker consultant against the world! Playing poker for a living or simply becoming a winning player takes a lot of time and effort. This is where you poker consultant will come in handy. Together, you will have the ammunition to dominate the online poker world.

This seems too good to be true. What is the catch?

There is no catch. Look at it this way, if you don't like our strategies for whatever reason…take the deposit bonus and cash out. We are very confident in our ability and know that our experience will take your game to levels you have never seen. Whatever your goal is, we will be with you every step of the way.

The only people who get a free lunch are those unfortunate folk who are homeless, any sometimes that only happens at Christmas.

my suggestion is to play very low limits. read loads and learn my experience. Thats what counts. Post the odd hand on here and get some feedback from folk who like you are learning off each other.

Best of luck.

Have to ditto the above. Articles, books and best of all: Practical Experience.

The articles on CC are quite helpfull and the number of them are rising. Some of the threads have extremely beneficial knowledge as well. Add to that the ever expanding number of poker books suited to almost any player, scenario and type of poker.

If you want to get into the nitty gritty, the poker tools you can get are also quite handy. Poker Tracker and the HuD should give you a good idea about yourself and your game.

As caliban stated, low limits to start with and studying is the best way. An online coach couldnt tickle my fancy.

Ok, thanks for your input!

I'm currently evaluating PokerOffice, but I have not recorded enough hands to actually make something of the data.

One more question about this coaching site: Is there anything I could lose? The way I understand it, I still get the signup bonus if I use their referral code. Is this possible?
I mean, if their "system" and advice is worthless, I might just stop using it, right? I'll be reading and playing a lot either way....
