Unfortunately, I am a no limit cash game specialist. The data I use derives from no limit cash games exclusively, and does not translate to either limit or tournaments.

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

Just had a 2 hour session with Matt and it was well worth the $$.

He definitely knows his stuff, but on top of that, gets it across really clearly. Within a few minutes, Matt found what was causing me problems, at the same time indirectly showing me how powerful HEM can be, especially in the hands of someone skilled and experienced like him. We then spent the rest of the session breaking it down, talking in depth about around 10-15 hands, but in great depth, discussing every conceivable line and how the concepts would apply more generally. FWIW I play 6max not FR, but that was not a problem at all.

I highly recommend mpethybrigde

If you post an e-mail address, I can send you an e-mail. Just do something like putting xx in front and behind it so it doesn't show up in a google search.

xxplayer@coldmail.comxx for example.

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

I had a free session with mpethy this past Thursday. I am beyond impressed. After helping me combine my PS and FT stats we didn't need to go any further to find my biggest leak. Apparently 9/6 isn't normal VPIP/PFR After getting over his shock at how much of a nit I am, mpethy told me I don't need a database analysis, I need a sweat session. I fully expected him to refer me to SplitSuit to sign up for a session. Nope. We did the sweat right then and there.

The only question he had was whether I would benefit more from watching him play 10nl or from him watching me play. So we did both. His explanations were clear and he answered all my questions. He also very clearly enjoys poker and teaching. I'm slowly improving, running 10.5/8.5 over the few thousand hands I've played since our session. I can't recommend mpethy enough.

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

I had a session with Matt a week or so ago and didnt learn a thing, didnt help my game at all. I recommend that no one else use his services from now on

obv joking, really nice guy and incredibly helpful analysis I cant believe it was a measly $50.

Dan,
Very interested in a 4 hour leak finder session. The vast majority of my play is at 50 NL at the moment. Shoot me an email at ejcejc@gmail.com, I would really like to schedule a session.

Thanks!
Alex

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

I just completed the first, experimental Comprehensive Database Analysis I have done as a written report.

The process was as follows:

1. The player e-mailed me all the hands he wanted analyzed as a .txt file.

2. I created a database in HEM for the hands and imported them.

3. I ran the analyses outlined in my OP for the comprehensive analysis.

4. With a combination of text and screenshots, I described the filters I ran, I discussed the player's results, I identified leaks, and I provided recommendations on how to plug the leaks. Where I thought it was necessary, I copied hand histories into the report to illustrate the leaks (I didn't want to do this, because each HH adds a page to the length of the report, but I found it necessary to illustrate what I thought was a small leak playing overpairs in this case). The report came in at 11 pages (but about half of this were screenshots and hand histories).

5. I created the report in open office writer, and e-mailed it as an attachment to the player.

The process worked flawlessly. I had no problems creating a database or importing the hands.

From my perspective, the process was less desirable than a live session because:

a. There is no interaction on the most important part of the analysis--plugging leaks. I drafted what I thought was a good, thorough report, but don't know if I have explained things in the best way for the player.

b. It took significantly longer than an average analysis.

c. I hate typing.

From the positive side:

a. I can see how it would be advantageous to have a permanent, organized record of the analysis. Many players record the session and/or take notes, but the advantage of the report is that it is much more organized, will be much easier to review, than either a recording or notes.

b. We didn't have to coordinate schedules.

I normally don't do this, but I asked the player to post his thoughts in this thread. If his response is positive, I will add this method of analysis to my menu of services, although I am 99% sure that I will charge a small premium relating to the facts that it takes longer and requires me to submit to the agony of typing.

Thumbs up Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

I conducted a PT3 analysis with mpethybridge Saturday afternoon that was very satisfying. Since I suck so bad at poker, he was able to zero in on a few major items and then spend the rest of the 4+ hours going into details, hand examples, and patiently repeating himself for me. I recorded the session for review and filled five legal pages with notes so this was a session that will provide many more hours of valuable study.

It is up to us to make the needed improvements in our game, but his analysis not only gives you the direction you need to take, but it also gives you the the confidence you will be successful.

Highly recommended!

Looking at the way my redline is dipping towards the end of this month i think I need to re-read my notes from the session, but I'm very pleased with the results.

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

Hi guys-

I am a 200NL regular, who just finished March with the best month of my poker life. Today was a perfect ending to an already perfect month.

Just got finished a 4+ hour database review with Mpethy.
Can't state enough how well it went.

Matt was very professional, punctual, jovial and clear. He was very easy to talk to. He doesn't talk down to you and is also willing to listen and even learn a bit himself. He is a master at HEM. He was able to narrow down a bunch of leaks I have. He's given me multiple things to work on which will no doubt be positives to my bottom line.

imo, this is by far the best value I've come across in coaching. I'm excited to fix my problems and log on to the tables.

Flame away, but I told him numerous times that his prices are way too cheap for the amount of work he is doing and more importantly, the benefit it will have on us, his students. Don't be suprised when his rates increase.

If anyone is on the fence about whether this will be a good investment or not, don't be. I am certain I will reap the benefits for months and months to come and if any of you have numerous leaks like I do, then it will be well worth it.

If I can be of any help to you all out there with answers to some specific questions, please feel free to pm me.

thank again, Matt!

Jerry

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

I had a database analysis by Mpethybridge last Sunday. Unlike the other database reviews he normally does, he analyzed my database independently and then sent me a written review of the leaks he discovered.


Pros:
  • Able to review report whenever I need to and information is well organized and easy to find
  • We did not have to find a time that we were both available for the analysis and I didn't have to buy a mic for Skype
  • I personally don't think I would have had the attention span to sit through the 4 hour session and take detailed and informative notes for later review
Cons:
  • A live session would have allowed for questions/discussion about how to plug the leaks Methybridge found which could have lead to him discovering more leaks with my thought process and how I analyze hands (hope that makes sense?)
  • In a live session I would have been able to see how he used Holdem Manager to quickly find and analyze my leaks and probably would have been able to pick up some tips for me to use on my own when reviewing hands/sessions

I personally feel that the written report was the better option for me. I have a neatly organized document that details my most serious leaks all the way down to the small leaks that are slowing chipping away at my winrate. Along with Mpethy's advice on the best way to go about fixing these leaks, I definitely feel that I have a very valuable report that is going to help me improve my game immensely.

Overall, I am very happy that I decided to get a database review, I feel that this review will help me improve my game and plug my leaks. I plan to post a before and after graph after I play a decent amount of hands to really show the improvement I've made after my database review.

If anybody has any questions about how the written report went or anything feel free to PM and I'll try to help out.


Thanks again Mpethy!

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

a quick question about that experimental method I have is,, all the thing I hear when it comes to database analysis is "your sample size is too small".

so I worry if you just get the hands he wanted to look at,, that you are doing a quick bandage instead of cutting out the cancer.
perhaps charge more due to the extra time as you have to look at more hands by getting all the hands ,, but that is the question in my mind.

I do like the hand hh you send back to illustrate the leak, that is something I like to see in videos, would it be more if someone asked for a video, would that be easier as you don't have to do that much typing, as i know you made a video for stoxpoker way back so you have some video experience.

Re: mpethybridge--Database Analysis: Finding and Plugging Leaks with HEM and PT3

This really is great value for whats he's offering. I had a session with him where he did the "Comprehensive Database Analysis" and was very impressed.

Since then I have recomended him to many of my current students as the value for what he's offering is amazing.

On a side note, Raise your prices!
