Message From YourDoom

Hi, my name is Ryan and I played on Pokerstars as YourDoom.

From June 2008 - April 2010, $3/$6 NLH was my main game and I beat that level at exactly 11.52bb/100 (the absolute highest winrate at that level on Pokerstars for any significant volume.)

In April 2010 I moved from $3/$6 to $10/$20 as my main game. I beat $10/$20 at 9.72bb/100 and had the #1 highest amount of winnings at that level of any Pokerstars player for 2010 (and #2 in the world among all tracked sites.)

To see graphs and stats on my poker career and to read testimonials from former students please come to my website I am a former high school math teacher and have been playing poker full time since June 2008. I have a master's degree in secondary math education, so my background lends myself to being a good teacher. As of the end of 2011, I have coached 75 players.

In addition to my specialty (100BB poker,) I have spent a considerable amount of time over the past few months learning, studying and perfecting 40BB poker.

There is a ridiculous, easily exploitable game out there right now since almost no one has any idea how to play with or against a midstack.

Think of it like this. If you could go back to 2008 with the poker knowledge that you have right now, how would you do in the games? I think if you're a 2bb/100 winner at NL100 in 2012, then you would CRUSH NL600 in 2008 with that same skill set.

The same thing is happening right now, but only with 40BB poker. Maybe in a few years everyone will catch up and by 2014/2015 it will be the standard to be proficient with and against a 40BB stack. But right this second, there is a gold mine out there for the taking. 2012 poker is so easily crushed with my 40BB system; it's really the same as playing 100BB poker in 2008 imo; mainly because no one knows how to do it well.
