Coaching and Mentoring

As I mentioned a few posts ago, I 've decided to get into coaching.

I am very confident that I can turn anyone into a winning player at levels up to and including $200NL ($1/2blinds). This can have you earning anywhere from $25-$50 an hour and more.

I have briefly returned to $50 and $100NL to see if anything had changed since I last played there. I'm glad to report that the games are pretty easy. So many players make the same mistakes, and are very easily exploitable.

While this sample is small, this is the damage I did while down there (click image to enlarge):

If you've followed my blog for any amount of time, you'll also know I'm a significant winner (4bb/100) at $200nl over roughly 400,000 hands.

I will also offer coaching for tournament play. While it is not my preferred game, I have shown ridiculously good results in small buyin tournies:

I have a great passion for the game, and love to talk about it. I have a honours degree in communications, and am very well spoken. I've also been a teacher in the past, though it was an English teacher.

I've been a pro player for about a year, but managed to put myself through university with poker. I've been through many ups and downs, and can certainly help get you on the right track to success. Whether you plan to turn pro, or are just looking to fine tune your game, I can help you devise a plan.

Classes will be held over MSN, AIM or Skype (any program really). We can chat or talk live, whatever you prefer. Video conferencing will also be available if there is interest. I will review your hand logs and stats, and give you advice from there. I will also allow you to watch me play, as I give you detailed insight into my moves. I can also watch you play, and coach as we go.

My rate is $125/hr or $1000/10hrs. For every hour I put in with you, I'm spending another hour+ prepping and revieiwng. This is a fair price, as most coaches charge $300+/hr (granted, they play higher stakes)

Please contact me directly if you're interested, and we can work something out. (edit: just leave a comment, i deleted my email)

Good question, and I should've addressed it in the post.

First, teaching and talking about concept helps to reinforce them. So, by talking about the game, I will be helping my own game.

Secondly, I love to teach. If I can help someone to be successful, it's a lot more gratifying then just beating people for thier money all day.

Lastly, there is no variance in coaching, and it is gauranteed income.

Anything else?
