25% off poker lessons!

I have decided to re-open my coaching services.

Now is the perfect time to improve your game at a huge discount, as I'm offering poker lessons for 25% off!!! Improve your game significantly so when online poker sorts itself out you can annihilate your opponents!

I have decided that I will offer my services at 25% off of what my hourly coaching rate was when I last coached in 2010, which was $250 per hour. It will now be $187.50 per hour. I think this is a great value and you have the added bonus of knowing that I'm a considerably improved poker player since the last time I was coaching students.

My coaching lessons are two hours in length and I feel like a minimum of 5 lessons (10 hours) is ideal for being able to fully convey my knowledge to you and have a significant impact on improving your game. If you choose to purchase a 5 lesson package, I will give you even a further discount of 20% off of the already reduced hourly fee of $187.50 on the entire lesson package. That's only $150 per hour for quality poker lessons! That's a total of 40% off my normal coaching rate!!!

My specialties are NLHE 6 Max cash games and mass tabling. I can help boost your # of tables played by at least a table or two by helping you understand how to use a few secret things that I've discovered in my VPP quest this year... I have slightly over 930k VPPs so far in 2011.

If you would like to contact me about getting lessons feel free to private message me on Cardrunners.com or email me at "Duckslayer2k@gmail.com" and I'd be glad to respond.

FTP Thanksgiving tip!

Here's a tip from the pro's for Thanksgiving!   I tried not getting into a flip ever and it worked great!  I just wait until the river comes to determine if I should put chips in or not, that way I can not lose a coin flip!!!!   >:D

Enjoy!  and Happy Turkey Day!

Finally had a great day on Stars

Ran well, played well aside from maybe one questionable pre-flop call all-in for 50bbs.  But I hope this is a sign that I am getting back on a roll. We'll see.

I had a great weekend hanging with Liz.  I went to the suburbs and we got a hotel room for a night after going out drinking with some of her friends.

It's late, so I'm going back to my apartment, watch NHL on the Fly, and hit the hay.

Stars experiment not going well

As I have mentioned before, I was attempting to experiment on Poker Stars this month to see if a SNE run is possible for 2011.  The games I have been playing in have not been working out.  It is a somewhat small sample... around 60k hands, but if you go by all-in EV I am losing WAY too much.  I am actually down around 10-20 buy-ins, I don't know exactly because of the unorganized database spread between my three computers.

I am throwing in the towel and just giving up.  I can't be getting crushed each day and session like I am now.

Also, the office is no more.  I decided to not renew the lease when it expires on January 15th.  It's been nice having Tim there to talk poker with and I feel like I'm a better player now than I was at the beginning of the year but my results now are not what I imagined they would be.  I sort of expected to be moving up the stakes, getting better a lot faster, and crushing a lot harder... what actually happened is I had to move down stakes due to having to cash out from all of my expenses.

It's frustrating but it was worth the shot as the potential reward was worth the risk.  Now it's just time to look at what I have left in my business and build it back up to where I was a year ago.  It starts with reducing unnecessary costs like the office.

So much for the good start...

I'm having a terrible time with poker.  I just am not playing well or running well.  It's disheartening.  I'm running WAY above EV this month, however still down in the game I've spent the most time playing.  I need to sit down and figure out a plan to unfuck my poker business because I'm seriously turning into a rakeback pro and it's ridiculous.  I'm way better than that and I know it.

Villain in this hand puts me on teh open ended straight draw and snaps me off with 8 high here.  It's no good.


Off to a good start this month, despite having my main desktop computer in the office crash and wasting a day or two trying to fix it.  I just ended up sending it in to Best Buy and paid a ridiculous sum of money for them to fix it (so far around $500).  So hopefully it gets fixed soon because right now I'm just playing on my laptop and my apartment desktop.  I can't hook up to my 30'' monitors because I don't have the correct adapter.

I'm going to continue the grind and play my best for the rest of the month.  Last month was good but this month will be better.  Forward momentum FTW!

Won the rake race!

Had a great Halloween weekend with my girl.  Also, today I found out that I have won the October FTP rake race at raketherake.com!  So that is pretty sweet, as I worked really hard to win that.

The plan for this month is back to the Stars SNE test run.  I'm taking today off though mostly as I want to just relax for a day before I start up the grind again.  Hope everyone had a great Halloween weekend!
