I know it is possible to go through the different RIO coaches pages and check if they offer private coaching. I started doing that, however, it takes a lot of time!!
Im in the market looking for both PLO and MTT coaches.
If anyone would like to offer something I would appreciate it.
Rates should be under 300$/h. I havent had any coaching before so dont scam me yo.
(Coach will have to be able to teach for midstakes level in both categories)
PM or answer in thread both works.

I haven't read the entire OP yet, I just want to hand out some cred for the title of it and for the way you've translated Brocks mindset for reaching goals to poker. . Brrrrrrock Lesnar, the beast incarnate. Too bad he's going to let Reigns go over at WM in 2015. Reigns.... Meh..
Good luck on reaching your goals. Ill cut a heymanesc promo for you when you do.

I believe several of the RIO pros offer coaching. If you click on their names you will see a tab called "Coaching", if you find someone youd like to work with, you may contact them accordingly. :)
*You might wanna check out Felipe, he did a really good series on the stakes you mention, including elements of moving up from level to level. He offers coaching, his rates are listed at his profile page.

Thanks for the thread, Chael. I too, am in the market for the first time. I dont have the opportunity to play as much as Id like these days, so I have decided to put some money on other players.
However, one of the guys I am considering is a close friend of mine. He is pretty aggressive, not only when it comes to poker, but as a person. When he heard about that I was in the market as a stakee, he wanted to be part of it. I find myself having a hard time saying no, but I feel I need some advice on where to go from here.
I havent signed anyone yet: If someone itt has any experience with staking friends, do you recommend it or do you advice against it? Would it be better to choose someone I dont know at all, someone I find online? Whats the best approach when signing someone to a deal like this?
Ive put aside 10k as a startup for this project, I would like some advice on how to best put those 10k in use, what kind of program is a roll like that suited for? MTTs? CG? SNG? How many horses would you recommend I distribute the funds over?
Sorry if this is alot, but its all new to me.
*If I was to choose to find candidates online, would it be best suited for the forums here at RIO or somewhere like 2+2? I never used 2+2 for more than entertainment.

I too, was perplexed that AKQQr was a snapf utg. It might help the future discussions of this thread if you explain why that fold is standard for you, so that people can better understand your thoughts on how we should perceive your choice of opening range, positional etc. If the majority is unaware of why certain parts your range are existant, its kind of hard to construct ranges in other spots.

I really miss some hs hhs where both the top pros and top members contribute in discussion. Its been a long time since ive seen one of the hs pros use the forum as a threadstarter.
Id like to submit a request to Sauce, Phil and Ola. If you feel you have the time, would you grace us with a theoretical discussion of an interesting hs spot? I miss reading zenfishs methodical reasoning, GameTheory and Zacs informative response, and the feeling of participating in the thoughtprocesses at the highest levels.
In addition, I really feel like Ive learned alot from this type of format in the past.
/it doesnt matter if it is PLO or NL.

Really enjoyed the video, Daniel. Ive been playing live the last couple of weeks myself, and this really helps, with guidelines on how to effectively analyze and work on live game. perf for peeps like me who are more used to online these days. Thanks

Meh. i agree his range is "strong" after flatting the flop with 2 behind, but what kind of hands does he halfpot the turn with? How many of those hands improve on the 2 river? If he had close to nut boat ott i think he might bet closer to pot, trying to get stacks in. He might bet the same hand i have at The river, but he might also not bluff 4xxx nonboat, therefore i found the spot interesting. Not at all as clearcut as you portray.

I would agree with you in most scenarios, its not always an open for me from mp. But since I had some recent history with Cutoff (he is very bad) I chose to play it, and once he 3bet I chose to call oop because of the fact that he (in my mind) easily would stack off with like 1 pair and a gutter if I flopped a set. We were also effectively semi deep and I was pretty confident I wouldnt make to many -ev mistakes if I flatted his 3bet. Not to be results oriented, but as I previously stated, it turned out that he had 3bet Qx7s5s4x and then played it like this. Pretty awkward lines, so you might understand why I would want to enter pots with him when I had the opportunity. When he flats my lead on the turn with nothing but a 7 high spade draw and doesnt bluff river when i x to him, that leads me to believe its really hard to lose alot of money to this guy.

Yeah. Logic in that seems fine. I find it hard to suddenly play a player like this when there are so few of them particularly in the zoom 500 pool. Guess its all about readjusting in a short manner of time. Have to work on that.
Sept. 6, 2014 | 12:22 p.m.
Yeah. I agree. Bad sizing ott. Also kind of agree with betting river, however, I believe this particular player would have some pretty unusual hands that he reached the river with that needs to bluff to win. In fact I was right, he showed up with Q high with 7 high spades (no straight draws, Qx7s5x4s) but somehow he still didnt bluff river. That makes me more unsure of what the correct river play is. What do you make of that? Anyway, thanks for the advice, bro.
Sept. 6, 2014 | 11:55 a.m.
Yea. Forgot to mention that in the hand i stacked him earlier i used a strange line with nuts w redraw. X/c flop and led turn. But not much history besides that hand. Yeah vbetting river is prolly best . Thanks

Kind of surprised he didnt put himself in the 11-25 category. Seems like all the listmakers playing in the game in question puts themselves at the top or near the top. Creds for self-realization to my fellow Norwegian.

I agree with you guys that I should have raised bigger on the flop. Still believe x back on the turn is a valid option, as themightyjim says. As I said in the OP I also believe its a close spot, thats the reason I posted the hand in the first place. Dont really know why you analyze preflop Onceitrun, when I clearly stated that I was trying something and that pre is to be excluded when helping me find a suitable line.
