If you are answering any q's (see last post):
any poker a-ha moments?
any plo a-ha moments?
how do you think about a pool eg 100PLO zoom on stars? (i am aware that the pool isn't constant for the exact same players every day.)
does it enter your mind where your skill compares to -the rest of the pool -an individual player you are in a hand with, or possibly do you make the assumption you are likely a better player than opponent(s)?

Thanks for the reply Andreas
I had an idea for a series of vids I would like to have used if I ever got to the applicable level to be a RIO coach:
take a microstakes player who wants to -move up stakes -be a pro -be a winner. Watch them play/talk to them about how they think about the game/assess their mindset then draw up a 6 month plan on how they can improve inc -live play goals -training drills. Then 6 months later do the same again with obviously they're at a higher level than before.
So it'd be a long term relationship with a student/subscriber or multiple 1's
Q: to what level do you think you could take the said player? (On that topic, could you as a teacher/coach make them a better player than you are?)
Q2: does it depend on the player/student? (What's the spectrum of outcomes?)

Welcome to RIO!
Am a fan of the interviews you had previously done on YouTube.
Q: as a learning/teaching tool do you think this type of content is better than a standard live play vid with commentary over the top?
What formats of vids are coming up?

I have some q's:
i) are you familiar with Tai Lopez?
ii) what do you think is optimal: a fastidious routine that you never break or a rougher routine but you get the odd extreme experience that provides radical insight? (You can only have 1!)
iii) do you feel you have a tendency to fall into negative thought patterns? do you feel you have control over this (now)?

Just popping in to say have been bingeing on your youtube channel over the last couple of weeks. Really enjoyed, really got a lot out of them.
I don't think I'm going to commit a lot more time to poker study in relation to playing/having a career but still find your thoughts (I like the q&a vids most) v useful as can transfer the general ideas to my main pursuit: film writing.
Keep releasing please. I intend to follow for as long as you keep producing content!

I am considering joining. 2 q's please:
i) is the app working fine for essential sub? (Where I can download some vids and watch on move)
ii) I use an ipod touch, I think it should be fine to use app. Any confirmation/relevant info?

Thank you for the reply. I will address some points:
It's a common joke/half-truth on forums that Jungle is autistic. Whether it's true or not, I dont know. I couldn't have put in a nice photo if I'd have just said [generic poker player].
It's something he is aware of.
If autism doesn't involve necessarily having exceptional maths skills that's my bad. The 3x guys I mentioned above (Cates, Tammet and Barnett) which I came across all have math gifts and autism has been mentioned (whether valid or not).
Your 3rd point I will definitely elaborate on (though hope somebody else contributes 1st embellishing on my original argument in relation to that).
Last few points will also consider before replying though from my gut 'endurance, resilience and persistence' in a single session is much less important than in a physical sport though 'improving your skillsets by training and repeating' is essential in poker, as in any competitive activity or most daily activities if you have a desire to be competent at the task.
