I met Saulo more than a year ago. I was following a blog of him here at RIO and one day I took courage and decided to send him an inbox to ask about his fees to coach me.
I had had previous coaching experiences, which were not satisfactory at all, but I decided to try it one more time.
Saulo answered me quickly but he did not tell me his fees, he simply clarified that he charged more than the avg. According to my calculations, it would be an amount of money that at that time was greater than my entire bankroll, but I did not rule out the possibility immediately and he offered to give me a presentation of his work methodology, so that i could see a "trailer" of what was waiting for me in his coach.
Once that presentation was over it was almost immediate that I said to myself, "I have to work with this person". It was so different from anything I had already seen that it really made an impact on me.
I was so convinced that this could be the breaktrough I have been looking for so long, that I borrowed the money so I could pay Saulo and start immediately.
A few months later Saulo invited me to join the stable, met Zinhao and I can say with total frankness, that I would not be where I am now if I hadn't made the conscious decision of "do something" to finally change my poker career.
This was that famous inbox:

Great writing skills bro! May i could ask you how it your general approach to play this anonymous tables? My guess is that 3bet and 4bet bluff range should be zero. Do you try to balance your bluffing range or you try to play more ABC style? Can you share some general tips?!

Hi Saulo! I will follow your progress.I want to ask you, why you choose to play zone table instead of regular tables? Im asking because on regulars tables you can identify on a few hands the recreationals player, but on zone tables you cant. You only play on Bodog?
