Lightbulb d7sarmy.com CFP - learn with d7o1d1s0, FourSixFour and ishter11

Hi there 2p2,

My name is Donald, better known as d7o1d1s0. I've been playing poker professionally for the last 5-6 years, mainly on stars but I've also played some volume on 888, party and FTP (before it closed). Unfortunately my HM2 database corrupted, so instead of HM2 graphs I'm going to share a couple of screenshots a friend shared with me from Russian PTR:




I'm proud to say that in each of the last 4 years I've managed to make in excess of $100k playing poker. If you'd like to know more about me and my journey through the stakes, the best place to find is in my PGC threads, here and here.

For the last few months I've been putting a lot of my focus into creating the best possible coaching for profit program. To that end, I've recruited two of my good poker friends who also happen to be world class players. I asked them for a bio and some graphs, here's what they said about themselves:

Darrell aka FourSixFour

I have been playing poker professionally for around two and a half years, with a main focus on 6max cash games as well as some HU. In 2014 I went from 100nl to putting in some hands at 1knl and have remained a mid/high stakes grinder since then. I have never owned a script, and start almost every game I play at regular tables. While this decision is likely to cost me short term winnings I believe this decision gives me much more longevity in poker, starting tables with the best regulars at each stake is a great way to improve and I enjoy the competitive aspect of the game. I think this approach can bring great value to my coaching, being able to hold your own against other regulars is something which will greatly benefit your winrate.

Graph of current db (~last 14 months, 90% of which are hands from Pokerstars at 400nl-2knl):



Cameron aka ishter11

I started playing poker recreationally in 2013 during college, playing the odd STT amongst friends. I soon found online and hopped straight into 25z, where I was a modest winner just clicking about. After I graduated, I decided to take poker more seriously, ultimately hoping to make some reasonable money at this game. I now play full-time, mostly online MSNL but I also travel for some high-value live stops.

last two years:

================================================== =======================

Why would anyone want to join your CFP?

When I first deposited online in roughly 2009, poker forums were full of people proclaiming that poker is dead. In 2017, these chorus' are louder than ever, yet time and time again new players manage to climb the ranks and make hundreds of thousands of dollars per year, while maintaining complete autonomy over their lives. It is true that poker is more difficult than it has ever been, and the knowledge barrier for new players is now very large, but it's also important not to lose sight of how lucky we are to make money at a fun, ultra-complex video game.
My goal with this CFP is to create the absolute best route to mid-highstakes 6max NL. I aim to provide everything an ambitious poker player needs, including world class technical instruction, assistance with software resources and mental game support, delivered through skype, and through my website, where players can privately discuss hands and watch videos.
I'm looking for players who play at least 50k hands per month, at least breaking even 25 or 50nl. Most importantly, I'm looking for players with the attitude required to make it to the top.
If you'd like to apply, message me on here or email d7sarmy@gmail.com with the following information:

- Name
- Age
- Your results from the last 6 months (with screenname(s) visible)
- Your living and financial situation - specifically what would happen if you didn't win at poker for 3-6 months?
- A brief synopsis of your poker career to date
- Have you ever been coached before?
- What is your typical study routine?
- Why do you think CFP is the best solution for you?
- Contact information

================================================== =======================

FAQs

- How long does the deal last?
Minimum of 12 months. This is the one element i really can't be flexible on. In order for coaching you to be worth my time, I need to have your action for a considerable number of hands, but I don't want to create a situation where you're only incentive is to grind hands - quality is as or more important than quantity. Therefore I ask students to commit to 12 months of at least 50k hands/month.

- What is the % profit split?
The standard deal I offer is as follows: we split everything (including rakeback) 50/50 on a monthly basis, but you can earn bonus % depending on volume/winrate:
-for every 10k hands you play in excess of 50k, you get a bonus 2% (maximum 8% bonus)
-for every 1evbb you win at in excess of 4, you get a bonus 2% (maximum 8% bonus)
In exceptional circumstances I can show some flexibility in these numbers to reflect students already showing outstanding winrate and/or volume.

- How many sessions will I get?
This is a very strange question I've been asked a lot. The best thing about CFP is that the priorities of coach and student are perfectly aligned - both parties want to student to be the most profitable player they can be as soon as possible. If a student needs a session, the last thing I'd want to do is wait for them to play X hands.
Instead, the typical situation will work like this - in your first month, we will work together very closely - looking at your database, how you use information and identifying the areas where we can quickly increase your profitbility. These first few months will be by far the most intense for you as the student as we break down and rebuild how you play poker. The reason for this should be obvious - on day 1 my incentive to coach you is enormous as I have your action for the next 364 days. On day 360 however, my incentive to coach you is much lower, plus the amount I can teach you is much lower. For this reason, your sessions will be heavily concentrated on those first few months, beyond that you will receive sessions less frequently, mainly if some particular element of your game needs worked on or if you're having an extended downswing.

- What kind of stuff is on your website?
I've been adding content to the video library since early November. The videos so far include numerous session reviews (of my play and of student's play), HH analysis, a 3-part series on using PIOsolver time-efficiently, mental game concepts and database analysis. The aim of the video library is to ensure all students have plenty of material to work on between sessions with coaches.

- I play on XXX site, am i elligible?
Currently, I'd rather only take on students playing on stars. There are two reasons for this - firstly, with stars i have the ability to request account audits and download your hand histories directly from their servers - these are two reasonable safeguards against the kind of shenanigans that sometimes go down making deals with people on poker forums. The second is that, despite the fact that stars is probably the most difficult site, our long-term goal isn't to have you bumhunting a bunch of euro sites for short term $ at the expense of your long term progression.

- I'm currently a coach/make videos for a site/have some CFP students of my own, am I elligible?
No. Poker is a game of information - the reason I'm willing to coach my students is that I have a share of their action. If you're coaching people in turn, the information diseminates further and further into situations I have no financial interest in, which is not acceptable. While I will take any reasonable action to help you become a better player, it is important to remember that this is a business agreement first and foremost - if you aren't putting in the level of work I expect, if you're sharing information or in some other way negatively effecting things, you will be cut.

- Do you coach for hourly?
No. I don't believe in coaching for hourly at all tbh - it creates a strange situation where coaches want to extract as many paid hours as possible in advance, and drip-feed information as slowly as possible. I've paid many coaches throughout my poker career, I'd say only one of them delivered value (I paid him $30/hour to teach me how to beat 50nl full ring). I've also been part of 3 CFP programs as a student, and in all 3 cases I got the better end of the deal (despite making my coaches a lot of money). It's quite a rare thing for someone to move up through the stakes completely without help, I think the best way to do it is through a CFP program, hence I am very unlikely to accept offers from people trying to pay for access to the site or pay for X sessions.

- Is there a maximum size your group will reach?
At the start of this year I set a goal to grow the program to include 20 students. However I've had a large amount of interest just through word of mouth, so I'm now aware that maintaining an excellent experience for the student will be the main challenge, even while accepting only the best applicants. While I won't make any concrete guarantees about the size of the group, what I can say is that the structure I'm using rewards coaches with equity in the enterprise (so they also have direct financial motivation to ensure your success) and, crucially, always leaves room to add more coaches should the need arise. I'm in the fortunate position of knowing a lot of world class players who would make great coaches, so there's every chance the coaching roster expands further as we take on more students.

Re: d7sarmy.com CFP - learn with d7o1d1s0, FourSixFour and ishter11

Just stopping in to vouch for all three of these guys. I've spoken to them all regularly about poker at various points in my playing career, and they've each helped me a ton. These guys are all crushing the games now, in 2016, and anyone who takes this opportunity and puts the time in will be getting an extremely good deal. If you take a scroll through this coaching forum, I can count 4 coaching for profit opportunities, two of which are absolute jokes and borderline scams, and none of which compare to the calibre of the team involved in this. TLDR; These three guys are extremely good at poker and trustworthy, and represent by far the best CFP opportunity on the market.

Does the cut remains the same for the entire deal? or will it gradually decreases over time depending on student results?

Just thought I would mention that i know all 3 of these guys, and would attest that you would be hard pressed to find better coaches in the current poker climate.

d7 in particular is putting a lot of hours into this, and is extremely passionate that it becomes successful.

All 3 could charge hourly amounts to coach which would be vastly higher than this current CFP deal, so I think it's a great deal for those who want to climb into MSNL.

The cut remains the same for the entire deal, yes.

=====================================

I've been having a high number of applications, and for that reason I will no longer be taking on guys playing 25nl. Realistically to get onto the program at this stage you will need to be playing and doing ok at 50nl minimum.

I want to vouch for d7o1d1s0. As I remember - One of the coolest and hard working person I’ve met in life. Huge nit though…, but in a good way, by that I mean – not a spaz, professional attitude.

If I would have more time on my hands, I would like to try and get in to this deal with d7o1d1s0 and his partners. I recommend for others this deal, as d7o1d1s0 racked in tons of experience over the years, received coaching himself from high-profile players/coaches. He can certainly improve anybody’s game.

Early days still but this project is coming along nicely and we still have room for more students. Everything is up and running and the environment we've collectively created should be one that is (hopefully) conducive to learning and success!

Feel free to message any of us if you have any questions or would like more info

Re: d7sarmy.com CFP - learn with d7o1d1s0, FourSixFour and ishter11

I've been having a lot of enquiries from potential candidates about how my current students are getting on. Here's an update from the first student I started working with, who's moved from playing mainly 100nl to shotting 500nl in 4 months:

My overall EV bb is 5.84, but I'm confident it's higher than that with my current rate of improvement.

Here's the breakdown by limits:



If anyone has any questions about my time with D7, please feel free to PM me, I highly recommend it to anyone that wants to improve really fast.

i thought i would chime in

i am very happy with quality of program and feel like my game has improved a lot from a technical perspective. In poker however there is a lot of mental game issues that many players have including myself. I mean making decisions because one is too emotionally attached to results etc. My results have been average in terms of $ won, however over the past 2 month they have improved a great deal when ive worked on mental game combined with the technical improvements.

So now after starting program at 50z i play 200z, i guess im going ok

gl with your endeavours

ps. you can see progress in my pgc

Re: d7sarmy.com CFP - learn with d7o1d1s0, FourSixFour and ishter11

Thanks very much for the kind words Max! (FWIW I didn't ask Max to post ITT, hadn't actually seen the question)

I think our CFP offering continues to get stronger every day. On top of the now quite extensive video library (52 videos on the site, probably an average of 40mins or so per vid), we've started distributing a decent chunk the coaching sessions we have with students so that everyone can benefit.

As for the progress of our students, we currently have 10 winning students out of 11, I'm fairly happy with everyone's progress (obviously everyone has room for improvement). I don't keep records of what games people were playing before they started, but I think basically everyone is playing higher than when they started.

I've learned a lot since I launched this project - the prevalence of misapplying theory concepts, the importance of mental game, as well as some technical stuff about how 50-200nl plays. The main factor in the success of any one student is still their attitude and work ethic, but I feel very confident that working with our group will greatly accelerate the progress of any smallstakes player with a willingness to learn.
