In this coaching series I´d like to turn a decent 6max midstakes player into a HU player that can beat all the regs at his level. It will be an open poker coaching program.
My mentoring history:
Without hiding my pride, I’d like to brag about some former long term students that I had. One guy was still in high school, beating NL100 6max, but got hammered every time he tried to move up to NL200. He contacted me and at that time I was looking to take on a protégé. In a period of only 6 months, while having his graduation year, he played up to 5-10 HU. At the moment I am mentoring another close friend of mine and his success story looks even greater!
I get a kick out of success stories, especially if I can help and be part of it. Back when I played fulltime (ok, it’s only 3 months ago), I wasn´t into coaching at all in general. My attitude was selfish and I had no interest at all in improving other players that weren´t close friends – since it would basically cost me money in the longrun. It’s like educating your competitors. Not something I was looking to do ;). Today it’s not like I turned on my altruistic mode, but my views did change a bit and I don´t care at all about maximizing profits anymore. Things come and go. Coaching is something that I genuinely enjoy – in many areas. So while working on this blog, I might as well do what I´m good at and what I love.
