I just finished my 10-hour coaching package with QY and would like to share my review with prospects or anyone who’s interested in working with QY.

I realized after 2 sessions that I want to extend my package from 6 hours to 10 hours.
- QY has blown me away with its structure, precise explanation of the concepts, and number of SIMS that proves his words
- QY will show you why people misunderstand certain concepts, and illustrate SIMs to prove the ideas and logic
- Almost every session I was blown away by the information and presentation of it

QY won't just show dry GTO theory, QY will make these concepts fun, easy to apply and demonstrate all subsequent exploits that could be derived from it
- Every concept was easy enough to implement
- All concepts come with exploits that you can leverage vs specific types of opponents
- All concepts are meant to be taught how to study on your own, ensuring that you apply them on the right boards vs. appropriate opponents

Many of us think we know GTO, we assume that we know how to exploit opponents and many of us are taught the wrong GTO ideas.
- It’s guaranteed that QY will open your eyes to common misconceptions or will be able to identify the leak in your poker thought process
- QY uses questions to pick up your brain about certain spots, concepts and ideas to understand where he needs to start his explanation journey

Lastly, I highly recommend hiring QY if you are looking to explore advanced GTO concepts, improve your exploit game and learn how to study poker on your own.

Thanks for the video!
Correct me if I am wrong but I noticed that you almost never use mid/big sizes (50%+) in your cbets on the flop. Could you please share a few insights on when do you use bigger sizes on the flop or why don’t you use them assuming my observation was correct?

Hey man, glad to see fellow Torontonian here.
I wouldn't get discouraged or conclude that you hit the wall at NL 200, as the described sample size seems insignificant.
Looking forward to seeing you at the tables!

Great content. Thank you!

Thanks for the kind words! I live in Toronto, ON, so we recently became "victims" of the geofenced restriction.

I love watching Patrick's story on IG. I genuinely love his content for the inspiration and ideas that he shares with the audience. It's sad that the guy doesn't have a vlog.

I will have another update by the end of the year, so hoping to deliver good news.

How about you? Playing cash? Where are you from?

The immediate reaction after generating the chart: I expected more. I expected a higher bb won/100 hands win rate than 2. The final net won amount appeared to be "okay" even though it does not capture rakeback and leaderboard perks which is probably another 2k-4к. After staring at the chart for 5 minutes and calculating my hourly rate, my mind questioned the effort "was it worth it?"

Mindset during the challenge: See, as a big fan of Patrick Leonard, who praised "longevity" to be the essential key of the game, I tried to constantly remind myself that even if I lose an absurd hand to a fish player, I will be back on tomorrow grinding the game while the fish will come in a week and almost certainly lose the money he won against me. This mindset also helped me deprioritize some social and personal activities and stay on track with my poker challenge. I ended up playing 4 hours a day in September to hit the 100k hands. I was impressed by the commitment, especially last month, considering I live with a girlfriend, a border collie (lYKYK) and have a relatively rich social life while working for a big 4. Is it sustainable? We will see. Perhaps I will have to adjust and pivot once in a while.

"Lessons Learned"*
1) holy guacamole, I didn't expect the variance to be so brutal. In the mid-challenge, I went from a 6k winning player to almost 0. These were 30k hands of pain, suffering and "wtf" smile on my face...

2) Poker losses can't be blamed only on variance. I made some stupid mistakes vs fish, such as 3-bettings preflop with the weak hands, calling x/r with mediocre hands post-flop, and not sizing my value bets enough.

3) GTO is required to know and study, but exploitative adjustments must be made.

4) Geofenced poker pools for the serious recreational player are probably one of the best things that could ever happen.

Also, is there a link to the spreadsheet that he shows on the video?

I love this video! Very useful. Where can I find a link for the additional videos on this study?
