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.

Fun session

Poker, results-wise, has been an absolute nightmare over the last week or so.  I'm on a huge downswing and a lot of it is just simply due to getting bent over.  Not much I can do about it, but this certainly is one of the biggest downswings I've had in terms of $ as well as over a certain amount of hands.

Here's a fun little graph of my last session where I absolutely pwnd this one reg when a bit deep at $3/6 NL 6 max and he proceeded to hit his 7% chance to win.  Oh, he also won a flip vs me that he never should have been in about 5 minutes after the first hand.   Oh, AND he sucked out with AJ on JXX all-in on the flop to stack the Megafish's pocket Queens and send him packing.

hit 200k VPP milestone

I hit the 200k VPP milestone today and have been playing a lot so far today.

Here is the hand of the day, lol.


Hope you all have a great weekend!

2011 Update

I have been super busy so far this month, hence the lack of blog updates.  I intend to start updating frequently in February so keep checking back.

I will take more time later to detail my goals and plans for 2011 but basically I am going for somewhere between 2 million and 3 million VPPs on PokerStars.  I have been trying to keep pace for 3 million so far in January but it is pretty tough, since I'm only 12-16 tabling 6 max cash $2/4 NL - $5/10 NL.  Currently, I have 199,539 VPPs and am around 24,000 VPPs behind pace for 3mil VPPs (which equates to about 2-3 days of work).

I am going to try and get all caught up before the end of January but it's going to be difficult.  I'm pretty happy about the PokerStars game buy-in structure changes for cash games and can't wait to quit playing against shortstacking bastards.  So I'm looking forward to that all going into action on February 10th.

As far as poker playing results, it was going awesome up until about a week ago... now I'm on a $15k downswing and there's no end in sight the way I'm running right now.  Still up for the month but it's really frustrating being at this point right now because I was doing so well before.  Oh well, at least I am getting in a good amount of VPPs and that alone should ensure that I have a good 2011.

I may do a prop bet on whether or not I will make 3 million VPPs in 2011.  I will play for a bit after the new game buy-in structures to see if it affects my VPP/hand rates and/or the amount of tables I am able to play before I seriously consider doing one though.

I will update again soon!
