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.

Stars Rake Rape

PokerStars finally announced the anticipated bad news about the change from the dealt method to weighted contributed for calculating VPP distribution.  Essentially this screws almost all regs and reduces their effective rakeback %.

Here's the link to the official changes.

Not only did they make that change but they significantly increased the rake by including 5 handed play to be up to a $3 rake cap per hand.

Many players, including myself, are disgruntled about these changes and a big uprising seems to be in the works.

This twitter site is orchestrating a massive sit-out which I think is a great idea and I encourage everyone who plays on Stars to participate as it's totally unacceptable for Stars to just rape its most loyal players with a rake increase just because they "think" they have a monopoly at the moment.

Let's show them wrong and sit out, play elsewhere, etc. until they either go back to how it was before or make some type of acceptable compromise.

  1. It's greed at its finest. FTP did this before Black Friday and it ticked me off. The rake paid is the same total (minus the new cap on 5-handed play). What it does is that it allows Stars to keep more of its rake now, because the recreational players won't grind out bonuses and uses Stars' effective rakeback options. It's pretty lame if you ask me.
