  • Welcome New Live Trainers!

    I am excited to announce that 2 new Live Trainers will be coming on board for a trial run!

    19honu62: Of course many of you know Chris already through his forum presence and his organization and running of the Cowboy’s Corral micro-stakes tournaments. Cowboy will be playing primarily micro-stakes 45-man sng’s, with some forays into micro-stake cash games and mtt’s as well.

    ahar010: Andrew is not as well known at PSO as Cowboy, but I think he brings a lot to the table. After reviewing and discussing his application with him, I’m impressed with not only what he’s accomplished thus far in micro-stake sng play, but also with how he presents himself. Andrew will be playing primarily 90-man sng’s, also with forays into micro-stakes cash games and mtt’s.

    I will be working with them both over the next couple weeks or so to get them set up on the trainer side and trained on the use of the training tool. Once they’re ready to go, we’ll launch with a couple live sessions as a trial run. Assuming all goes well and we’re happy on both ends, our intent is to continue from there with roughly 3 one-hour sessions/week for now.

    Also note: Because the direction for these guys is to conduct 1 hour sessions, and their primary game of choice are 45 and 90 mans (which take more than 1 hour to win), some modifications to what you see from them will be in line. For example, one day Chris may run a live training with 2-4 of the 45 mans in progress at different stages, perhaps just focusing on one or perhaps taking you between the tables as hands come up. Games where they do go on to final table runs and/or wins, can be presented in a future live training via the replayer if necessary. So just keep in mind that when a live training is up on the clock, it’s up, but I’ll be working with these guys to keep the scheduling of what you’ll see fresh and fun for everyone, and in the event a session being covered for live training goes on to a strong finish after a class is over, we’ll make sure you don’t miss any of the good stuff.

    Please join me in welcoming these guys to the Live Training arena.

    Thanks,
    Dave

    Congrats to the two of you and look forward to the work.

    One thing I have noticed about videos,especially live is that when the commentator has 4 tables going they are often not going into great detail and get lost in thought.
    Just things I have noticed with the training sites and multi tabling and discussing are two seperate things.Hopefully it works out.

    That said,I look forward to your videos and eventually watching as well.

        Thanks Dave for the intro and for taking me on under your wing. I have been playing online for about 3 years now and have been trained by the likes of Chardrian, Glory2God, RedMarion, TheDeciever, Siberianex, Betzph, Dendee and Al Spath to mention a few.
        My goal is to help people build a solid foundation in micro play. This will include but not limited to understanding playing in and out of position, starting hands, stack sizes and probably most importantly good bankroll management.
        I am currently running a 1000 game grind of $.50 45mans and you can follow my progress in the forum. I just completed the same grind of a $.25 45 man for 45% roi and 25% itm and am currently close to those numbers through 200 games.
        I am not a professional player but enjoy playing and reaching goals! I look forward to working with you!

          Yep, I've noticed that too Cookies and some trainers handle it better than others to be sure. The example scenario may or may not work, we'll see. Another thing they may do is, say, take you through the first hour of play one day (focus on early stage play). In another session they may focus on the 2nd hour of play, a decent way to do this is to fire up some tables a hour prior to the start of training, and then at the end of an hour they can select one to focus on for the live training. We'll play around with different ideas.

                          This is exciting. Good luck with the training tool, guys. Dave made it angry a few weeks ago and it still hasn't forgiven him.

                            lol. Actually the last few sessions it's run really smoothly. Before that it was pretty cranky though, I think it was just teething.
