Just wanted to point out couple of things based on few of the inquiries i got:
1. Although I am very ambitious, have poker as a priority in my life(time and importance wise), and looking to work in analytic way(which require theory understanding) - I start at relativity low level and plan to work on the foundations first. While small intensive study group is mainly about having similar minded players(ambitious, goals, willing to work hard, etc), starting with about similar level players is also very important. Having big skill gap between the players can be discouraging/frustrating to both sides. If you are already a long-term winning player at 100plo+ and feel you won't gain anything by working on the foundations, you might be too advanced, and we will catch up in couple of months :-)
2. Paying for a long-term coaching and buying the material we will work on is fundamental part of the group structure I have in mind, therefore it is a requirement.
3. I currently live in Thailand, and so timezone differences with American players might be an issue(other places are not a major issue I guess). Therefore unless you are flexible enough with your time to make it work, it might not be a good match(noon to night at my time is deep into the night to early morning at most places in america).
I hope I didn't get too specific with the requirements :-)
If anyone might be interested, sent me a PM...

This will be discussed later once we will establish the group members. I intentionally didn't discussed names because the first goal is to find similar minded players to form the group(as opposed to looking for players to do group coaching with specific coach).

I'm looking to form an intensive 3 players PLO study group with group coaching.
The nature of such small group require similar minded players(with similar ambition) therefore I will specify exactly what I’m looking for, hoping to find players who are looking for the same thing.
The target audience is low level players (10plo-100plo - short handed) who want to work intensively on their game in order to become the best players they can be in the shortest amount of time, and which have the time and desire to put the day-to-day hard work to make it happen.
The approach to the game we'll take is analytic in nature, which will require daily work not just in learning new theory and playing – but in analyzing HH with tools like Odds Oracle and some basic math. You have to be willing to do such work on daily basis in order to improve in such approach.
We will be using available material from books and videos with similar analytic approach, along with some custom made content.
I'm looking for an ambitious group who will work hard and very intensively, so you have to have the time and willing to dedicate time every day to poker (divided between playing, studying and reviewing/analyzing – alone and as a group).
You should also be willing to put in the financial investment by paying for group coaching (roughly ~$200 per month assuming we will be 3 players), and buying Odds Oracle and specific material we will work on(we won't go crazy here).
I'm looking to form a small group which will stick together long-term, will become the best players they can be and move up as fast as possible.
If anyone might be interested to join such a group and want to talk more to see if we will be a good fit, send me a PM with your Skype...

If any lower level player looking for a serious group, read my 2+2 message about the group i'm looking to form:
(send me a PM here or in 2+2 if you are interested)
We are already 3 dedicated players, and will launch things very soon.
We consider getting another player if it will be the right player(similar minded and dedicated, as discussed above).
If anyone is interested, send me a PM.
