I (Bill Hubbard – AintNoLimit / ANL) offer a structured No Limit Holdem coaching program which has endured the test of time and been a success for hundreds of students to date. (See Live Testimonials below)
The “secret” to transforming a break even player into a high level thinking/winning NLH player is a combination of…
Seeing the No Limit Holdem game from a completely different paradigm than the traditional view of the game is what I show students right away. Lower limit No Limit Holdem (1-2 through 2-5) being a game of passive dead money mostly, lends itself to tremendous exploitation and most players cannot adjust to our strategies of picking up this dead money.
• Cutting edge strategy
• Structured plan of study with proper goals in place
• Apprenticeship (A mentor who will walk the journey with you until your goals are met)
I am sure that most realize the above plan is appropriate/vital for any venture whether poker, business or any other endeavor. ANLpoker.com is the only structured NLH (No Limit Holdem) program (from 1-2 through 5-10) available that I am aware of. Players may be exposed to cutting edge strategy and still fail without proper mentor guidance along the way. The apprenticeship factor is vital in my opinion. Why else would there be so few tremendous players in live poker rooms when there is a plethora of books out there for sale?
I believe most players who have not reached their personal poker goals search for that “lightbulb moment” that will allow them to rise above their opponents by several levels. Proper personal poker coaching is the only solution that will produce major results within a reasonable timeframe. Cost effective, ANL coaching on average starts paying for itself within 8-10 weeks of coaching. If any player is not on a structured program designed to rise to the next level in X amount of time, then most likely the player will stay stagnant at the current level for indefinite periods of time. We see this every day with most players sitting at the same limits for years. Complacency is rampant within most players at live poker allowing the astute player a fantastic profitable environment.
LIVE TESTIMONIALS –Many of my students allow new players to contact them via email to verify my claims here. Simply PM me here for several student email addresses if you like.
Student reviews – My replies from students on this thread speak for themselves. I am a very well respected poster on the Live Low Stakes NL forum do my best to give the posters a peak into a higher level No Limit Holdem thought process within this forum.
I find that most live NLH players do not use poker coaching and thus completely understandable how so many online players rise through the ranks quickly while most live players dwell at the same limit for years. Don’t let that be you. Get on the positive/upward track of playing/studying/learning. It is only you that will ultimately benefit.
Check out my latest email from a student giving feedback.
I forgot to tell you that tons of other players give me respect now. Random fish who I dont remember compliment me on my play. Decent breakeven and slightly winning regs will transfer out of my table just to avoid playing with me. Other grinders who have been crushing it at my casino for years come up and talk to me because they respect my game. I'm able to think on a level I could not imagine when I first started with you. Also I make awesome money now to boot :P.
Start now and become the next person to tell me how your opponents fear playing with you and won’t sit to your left. (The person above “Liam” above allows players to contact him by the way, simply PM me for his email)
I am personally committed to helping each student become the very best that they can be. Finding the proper starting point and setting goals to meet your poker aspirations will make the goals a reality instead of a dream. It is difficult not to succeed when you surround yourself with a coach who cares, and has a proven track record.
PRICING: Check out my website for pricing and see all the different ways that a player may choose to learn. I have an introductory quiz that I can assure will be mind-expanding for anyone at these limits.. My Intro quiz is merely $35 (Advanced quiz is $50) and will help players no matter the limit they play up through 5-10. I give a no questions asked MONEY BACK GUARANTEE with the Skype session that comes after the quiz thus there is nothing to lose and everything to gain. (Note: I do give discounts and work with players in many ways in order to help them achieve their goals, without breaking the bank in the process. Most players sessions pay for themselves after approx. 8 sessions on average) if you are playing poker on a weekly basis, you cannot afford “not” to pass up coaching (even if merely my email hand/question program which is extremely cost effective).
At ANL, I taylor your program to you specifically/personally directed to your particular gameflow and structure.
• Beginning with my Introductory or Advanced quiz is best to get a player’s “starting point” defined specifically.
• Taking skype sessions on basics (yet not found in current written material) is vital in order to have the correct tools in which to use when analyzing hand plans. Basics such as Preflop/Postflop/Cbetting and follow thru/3 Betting and follow thru/Handreading/Bluffing with precision/Math-Combinator-Pokerstove-FE calculation/Creative play and Polarization to name a few.
• Being tested with a plethora of hand examples and hand quizzing is what makes it possible for players to derive the optimal lines/thoughts in real time. (Learning how to start and drive a car does not qualify you to get on the freeway at 80 mph. You must get that experience many times in order to truly become an accomplished driver. Same with poker, and I put you through these paces with my program)
• Email hh/question program allows players to discuss hands or topics on a continual basis instead of waiting for a session a week away.
• Quizzes along the way to ensure the material is being absorbed and correctly applied.
• Any type of coaching a player desires which is not in my normal program will be discussed and considered as producing the best results in the shortness timeframe is the goal.
I played 40-80 and 60-120 Limit Holdem for years for most of my income (I have a BS in Pharmacy and about half of my poker life I worked a couple of days a week in Pharmacy to see how the real world was turning). I then went on to play online full ring and 6max NLH rising to 14 tabling 400nl and 600nl 6max online and once the UIGEA went into effect I then decided to venture into the live brick and mortar setting in the event that online poker would dry up altogether.
I spent ~5 months building my live game from ground up, (7 days a week) utilizing the knowledge i had gained from online play and transferring it to the live game. The hand ranges and tendencies of the live players were so different that it seemed many times like two totally separate games.
After the 5 month period of ramping up my live game, I pounded the games at the Bellagio for approx. 2 years making sure that the strategy I created worked in practice. My average at the 2/5 game at the Bellagio for approximately 24 months for 2/5 NLH was ~9 bb/hour and ~7 bb/hour at 5/10. After having been observed by several players as being head and shoulders above the average player, I had several players ask me to teach them. I never had thought of this really, however I accepted and found it to be very rewarding helping others, therefore voila, here I am today. I structure myself to play different amounts of time weekly at online, live private, as well as live brick/mortar NLH at several limits which keeps me abreast of current gameflows. My coaching business has exploded from word of mouth success stories and thus I am intensely reworking some of my material into Powerpoint/Camtasia videos for streaming from website for easy access to material by my students. That is a major undertaking currently underway.
Most players live by recent results which is an inaccurate way to keep score especially at live poker where it takes years to get into the long run. Have me (or anyone you may trust) evaluate your game for a better picture. You might be pleasantly enlightened, and what is there to lose by investigating further?
