  5. So history first, I was a training site member for about a year, and while it showed you some tactics for hands in tournaments, I didn't find it specific enough for certain things.

    I want to invest in my poker education again, so for people that have done or tied a few different training methods... coaching or a HUD program with leak buster aid, which have you used and what do you like don't like.


    This is my OPR stats

    Game * Prizes Profit ROI ABI AFS R/A ITM ITM
    Hold'em NL $45,982 $10,050 28% $11 2374 25% 524/3412 15%

    Any and all advice appreciated

  6. Ok I'd say first off get Hold'em Manager if you haven't already and have a real look at the programme to see how it works. It's very helpful. Apologoies if you already have it, you're post is just a little unclear. As far as coaching goes, for mtt I can not say, I'm sure pocket fives have only the very best to say about their own training of course however. For cash games, the most important tool I had was a book I stumbled across. Also getting people's opinions about certain hands is about at the top of the list after going over your hands yourself and questioning what you should have done.

  7. By HUD program, I meant programs like Holdem Manager, Poker Office... etc.

    For Mtt I'm thinking a manager/HUD program would be better, specifically one that could show me leaks that I don't see. I went on a rant the other day about Badbeats and realized at the end of the day I gotta figure out ways to improve on my own. Hence this post.

    I could be wrong though, maybe a coach is what I need, things like Bankroll management I got a handle on, consistency on getting deep in tournaments, spots where I may be missing value, that's where i need help I think.

  8. I don't think anything beats 1 on 1 coaching if you find the right coach for you.

  9. i mean, coaching vs a leakbuster program are not even really close when it comes to what you can learn about your game...coaching will clearly get you a larger return on information and whatnot...however with that being said, coaching is more expensive, so that's up to you whether or not you want to invest $50 in a program, or a few hundred in coaching.

    my advice to you...go ahead and spend the small amount of money on holdem-manager and the leakbuster program...it will help you in the long run to find out a lot about your game, anad also help you with reads at the table...however, also go out and try 1 lesson with a good coach. i think you'll quickly realize that there is a reason one is a lot more expensive than the other, and you will want to take more lessons, and down the road when yous ave more money, you should do that

  11. Not sure what forum to post this in. I took a lesson from Jennifear a long time ago and was looking to take another one focusing specifically on 4.50 180 mans. Her site says she is no longer coaching so I was inquiring here for materials on the 4.50 180's or who does this specific coaching?

  13. it's not even close...coaching by far. you should get a HUD anyway cuz they're helpful but if you actually want to improve your game a lot, coaching is by far more valuable

  14. Just want to add that you can use icmpoker and mess around with different spots to see where shoving is profitable and where it is not and things like that. Icm is really helpful for tourneys and you can put in peoples calling ranges and stack sizes and stuff and see where it is profitable to shove and where it's not and things like that.

  16. How many hours would you at least recommend if you are looking for a coach to make good progress ?

    I am a low and low-midstakes winning player and want to make the next step. I have been using HoldemManager for about 2 years, have been kind of successful in low/midstakes MTTs and think I have a good basic understanding of hand ranges,stack sizes, odds, etc.
    In my opinion I need to improve my mid-tournament/mid-late tournament play and learn how to successfully chip up, since I blind down to 15-25 bb a lot and just play my ABC-fold/shove game from there on until I get a huge stack or go out.
    Im sure I have a lot leaks that Im not aware of yet and that probably won't be that bad in low-stakes MTTs but would get abused in the higher buy ins.

    So, which coaches could you recommend ? What is the minimum amount of hours I should take ?
    Thought about Gags, because a friend of mine (and Pius ofc) have improved their game taking lessons from him :)

  17. I can't really tell what kind of profit you actually have but if you're winning some already and feel you have a good grip on the fundamentals then invest in a few sessions of coaching and see how it goes but choose your coach very wisely, there are plenty of people offering coaching who are shady or not very good themselves so check them out very well.

  19. Ok To further my conversation now, I have been using the trial of PT3 and so far I like it. I get how the numbers translate into hand ranges, so it will be a definite buy for me for me at the end of trial.

    Next question, @ Gags cuz hes the only responder at this point, is coaching a flat rate no matter what you are doing? Example-- would reviewing HH be same rate as 1 on 1 coaching, ghosting etc. what if I wanted some text to read as to the best ways to use tracking software?

    What if I wanted a session like- 1/ you review HH of my game, say a random tourney 2/ then have have a review of tourney explaining holes or leaks, ways to get value I may be missing?
    Can I set up a specific session like above? Or do we follow a set course that is already laid out?

    Thanks

    Ok, well, I can't speak for other coaches, so anything that I say here is directly related to my knowledge and own experiences about coaching.

    To answer your question, almost all of the lessons that I do are 1 on 1 lessons. In these lessons, we can do many different things. The most common is a review of the student's hand history from a tournament you've played. This helps to identify and plug leaks in their game. When getting into more advanced concepts such as chip accumulation deep in tourneys, 3 and 4 betting, and other advanced lines...many students find it helpful to watch hand histories that I have played, as I have many examples of these in my play. If you have a specific topic you want to cover, I can structure a lesson to focus on this topic. This is not that common, as many students will say things like 'i want to learn to 3bet light' and instead of just making an entire lesson on 3betting, which is def good and all, but if you have other leaks then learning to 3bet light won't help you that much (if at all)....i will simply incorporate 3betting into a regular hand history review and point out spots to 3bet as I also discuss other things. This generally will give you more for your time and money.

    I do have a basic lesson plan that I follow with all of my students. Depending on the students' level of skill, I start at different points in this plan...but basically, you need solid fundamentals before you move onto advanced topics and things like that. I completely break down a student's game and don't just say things like 'oh you're doing X wrong, you need to be doing Y'...i get inside a student's head and figure out WHY they're doing something. I then break down exactly why doing X is bad...and why doing Y is better, and help them to understand the logic behind such plays. This helps a student not only know what to do in a situation, but help them in the future to figure out what to do in different situations, so they can think about these things for themselves.

    I'm not sure what you mean by "hand history review" vs "1 on 1 coaching"...like i said earlier, most lessons are 1 on 1. With that being said...I have done group lessons in the past with 2-5 students. Many coaches charge a discounted rate to each student to do these lessons since it's not as personal as the normal lessons.

    I know you also mentioned ghosting. In my experience, ghosting is not a very effective form of coaching. Students often times will be more focused on the result of the tournament/hand rather than actually listening to and learning the strategies I am discussing. Also, ghosting is against most poker sites' terms of service, and therefore not something that I do, nor would expect any good coach to do.


    Hope that answers all of your questions!

    right here at P5's Training we have several high stakes mtt videos (my own included). I do my best to not be as boring, and try to always fill the video with something constructive rather than random stories or anything like that.

    So check out some vids!

    btw, if you do find my videos boring, or feel that i mumble a lot, please let me know, you can comment on every video...and i do read them all

  25. Hi,

    My brother wants to play NLH 6max cash games more frequently so I'd like the P5 community to give their opinion on which Poker Training website is best for this game. He will be initially tackling low limits 50-100nl with the view to move upto 200nl within a few months.

    Presently I'm thinking Bluefire may be the best option but please feel free to give a cash game biff some direction.

    Thanks
