Cash Game Poker Coach ListingsThis forum consists of threads by poker coaches who have paid for the privilege of beginning a thread with their details. All users are welcome to participate in these threads.
After I've decided to quit full-time poker and dedicate myself to online businesses, many friends/people i know have asked me if i could write a book. While i always loved coaching, i thought it was a stupid idea to give my opponents the info they needed to improve.
Now i am free to teach everything i know. And judging from the feedback and results my students get - can help you as well.
SUCCESS in 2013 and Why will other poker coaches hate me:
Usually i'd start saying how i can help you, but you've probably read other threads as well, so let me point out what makes me stand out from the average coach:
* My students have the best results
* I have already helped 4 students to move from being a penny-game-home-game donkey to become a highstakes winning player - in less than a year (and i'm doing it again right at this moment!!!)
* No other coach has achieved anything even close to this. They are nice and friendly guys, but they either don't care or don't work as hard as i do
* Pokerstrategy.com (the biggest poker school in the world) has verfied my results & graphs and keeps asking me to produce videos for their community.
* Despite not being a "mainstream coach" , check out the only name which is two times in the "video of the month list" (Raskolnikov is my handle on PS). This is despite the fact that i created only a total of 5 videos in that time span.
* And, here is the living proof that somebody who has never played a hand of HU in his life, who had few dollars to his name, will CRUSH 2013. Here you can follow my protege updating and telling you in an honest fashion what it takes to win:
Ok, my friend, you see, big words, but i back them up. No other coach is doing this, and i let YOU figure out why. It's not that hard if you know what you're doing and if you are putting in some hard work.
Why choose me?
* Most coaches only talk or don't really understand what you want and need. And if they are good players, then few, if any of their students post graphs. I'll let you decide why.
* My courses and coaching are based on facts, grahps and numbers to back up what i promise. And they are a lot of FUN! (Again, look and read what other players like yourself have to say)
* You will have the opportunity to work with somebody who not only cares about your success, but also provides by far the best results for his students. You can work with somebody who is a great player AND knows how to coach

Generally speaking i do recommend you to get one of my quality courses first. They typically contain 30-40 videos and don't cost much more than one hour of coaching with me. So most of the time, it's best to get the course and then afterwards deepen the knowledge!

=> 100% Satisfaction guaranteed. If you don愒 love the 1-1 coaching, let me know after the session and you don愒 have to pay me.
I offer this option to You, because i am very confident that you will profit from taking coaching. And if not, then you simply don't pay.
3 promises to You:
I guarantee that in every coaching session we have, you will learn something worth at least $500. If you don愒 think so, you don愒 pay

=> I惴 known to teach and explain "complicated material" in an easy to understand way.
Unlike other successful poker players and video producers I will not hold back any info/secret of success from you.
How does a session look like ?
I扉e developed a system for the first hour, that will plug your biggest leaks right away.
(You can of course also tell me if you are interested about a specific topic)
I扉e made all of my money in poker by figuring out my opponents leaks in just a few minutes (thats the very nature of Head Up NL). If i didn愒 have this ability, my opponents would have eaten me alive.
I扉e transfered this skill to practical coaching. This means that we will be able to identify & get rid off the weak spots in your game quickly. In our sessions I put a high emphasis on practical exercises.
UPDATE: Don愒 take my word for it. The references in this thread give you a good picture of what you can expect.

He will identify your weaknesses and tell you exactly how to fix them. His no-nonsense style is very effective and he is a pleasure to work with.
MY first impression of this thread wast that it was "too good to be true", but because of his 100% guarantee (don't pay if you're not satisfied), I thought he was worth a try - and I am VERY pleased that I did.

Achievements as a poker coach:
Turning a Nl100 breakeven player into a winning Nl1k player in less than 6 month
Coaching a buddy who was a low stakes tourney losing player and turn him into a NL 2k winning player - in less than a year
Tought a student methods to get rid of his monkey tilt. Before he tilted away almost his complete bankroll and could not play more than 2 hours daily. After our sessions, he was able to put in more than 10 hours daily when necessary. Today tilting to him is "something that others do"
Helping many 2p2ers plug big leaks and make them a better poker player
Both family and friends say that my biggest strenght/talent is coaching, motivating & helping people.
Expertise as a player:
Head Up Cash is my bread and butter. About half of my students are 6max players though. There are minor differences between 6max and Heads Up, but the methods, systems and strategies i teach will enable you to beat any game of your choice.
Here愀 a graph of just one of my (many) Accounts:
You might think i*bluff*a lot.*Thats not the case at all!
And this is how you can confuse any opponent**. I惻l teach you how to play super aggressive but at the same time without ever having to bluff like an overaggro donkey !*
I am also one of the few players on the planet, who has a positive winrate BOTH on the Button AND the BigBlind in Heads Up Poker while playing against strong competition.

I can confirm winnings of Gordon, and fully vouch he is 100% legit.
My name is Magne..I play under magne_18 on PS and magne87 on evp.. Guess some regs have seen me around...
I have known Gordon for quite a while now...We first met when I was living in Malta. Gordon moved there at the same time...We both played 1/2 and 2/4 HU at that time... I have spent tons of hours discussing poker with Gordon, and I can truly say he has been the most helpful person in my pokerlife.. We both slowly build our way up to 10/20 and even 25/50 HU.
We have lived together in several places after that (Buenos Aires, Thailand, Vegas++)
Gordon is imo a really good teacher when it comes to poker...He is smart, organized and good at explaining his toughs.. Hard to go wrong if you want to try him out as a coach..
If anyone has any questions, send me a PM...

I haven't had much time to play, these hands are my last 3 months, but still I think I could mantain somewhat same winrate. (these hands are 95% NL50 and 5% Nl100.
I think HU Mastermind course is great package for beating almost all kind of villains, atleast in NL50.

After reading through all the positive reviews here and seeing the support of some well known 2p2 posters I decided to get a session with Gordon. He very quickly assessed me as a player and gave me some very good general knowledge in our first session about tilt and spew. We covered a good deal of spots/hands through which Gordon noticed I was lacking some key fundamentals. He recommended his headsup course to me and after seeing how effective and efficient his coaching is I snap bought the course.
I went through the entire thing in a matter of a week. Literally stopping after each video/topic and going onto 50nl hu and drilling the concepts into my head. It was cool because each time I did it, it was like adding more tools to my game. Anyone that says the course is very basic has CLEARLY not gone through the entire thing. Gordon goes into great detail explaining concepts and better than that he gives countless practical examples so you actually see what its like to utilize the information. The cool thing too is after anything he tells u he always says "why that" and then gives you reasoning. Its funny cause sometimes Ill be playing now and literally hear Gordon in my head saying "why that"
Ive been having ridiculous success since completing the course and would wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone wanting to learn headsup. Its so well put together I think even a newbie could succeed from watching it alone.
Graph 1 (Pre Gordon) 100nl: Playing only fish, extremely bad losing regulars, or playing regs to start 6max/fr tables
Graph 2 (Post Gordon): Sitting everyone in the 100nl hu lobby and staying vs anyone who will play me (afaik 0 fish and 0 losing players in this sample)
Huge thanks to Gordon and will def be getting more coaching with him. I hope to post again with graphs of 1/2 and 2/4 soon =D

Now my next goal is to reach 100K. I might get some more coaching from Gordon to reach that goal safe and fast .
Anyways, what I want to say is that Gordon is an amazing coach. He helped me, and Im sure he will help you to!

During the session, after doing some HH reviews, he quickly pointed out my leaks. But that's not the most important things. He explained to me concepts of poker in a very easy to understand and practical approach. Many of us who watch too many coaching videos would end up mind-fvcking ourselves and over-complicate things. However, Gordon was able to break down poker to me and made me realize that SSNL should be very simple and straightforward.
My result improved dramatically. I used to struggle breaking even, waited for the biggest bums to play against, but now I just sit in and 2 table against other regulars comfortably, knowing that I have the knowledge to crush them (not all of them actually, but every single one I have played against so far).
Gordon didn't ask me to write him a testimonial, and I know it sucks because more people would learn from him thus making the game harder, but I really think he deserves all the praises ITT.

1st graf are hands i played after i bought "Double Your 6max Winrate" and a couple of private coaching lessons.
2d graf are all hands i played at nl100 6max. You can see a huge difference on 2d graf between first 48k hands and the rest, that was the moment i decided to improve my game with Gordon's help. I rly appreciate how Gordon approaches the coaching. He teaches what is the right way to think about poker, what is wrong in your thinking process, how to improve it, etc.
More over, recently i decided to improve my HU game and bought "Heads Up Mastermind" video course. I haven't played a lot(haven't even watched it till the end yet) but even now, i see huuuuge difference in my game after learning some new stuff.
So i definitely recommend Gordon's courses or private lessons to everyone who have troubles with beating any cash game.
Good luck guys!

And i'm a big fan of Gordon so i'm not sure of my objectivity.
The ratio price/content of the course is very very good.
Some obvious topic are missing like the 3bet strategy and a street by street guide(like in the hu course)
But the real advantage of the style of coaching of Gordon is that he focus on thinking process and exploiting like a crazy the opponents with some very simple "tools".
Also sometimes he makes some philosophical disgression in the videos on the way people think and other stuff i have find it was very interesting and accurate.
here a graph where you can see the improvement of my redline and winrate(low sample i'm not a big grinder) since i have buy the courses.
... what I REALLY like is the fact that Gordon goes in detail about practical, crushing stuff, and really cuts the link between all the ****ty thought processes you acquire when you keep reading 2+2 and other forums where everyone is free to post and where you misapply concepts or just take a lot of stuff as the holy grail while it's really not THAT important at small stakes (not saying 2+2 isn't a goldmine, I just think that a lot of things like "balancing @200NL" especially against fish, or the word "standard" are just making you lose focus on the essential stuff, and just limitate your thought processes because u're like "wow this isn't standard, it has to be bad")...

I think most players would benefit a lot from his coaching.

What I really LOVE about him is that he's entirely rational, and he's basing all his reasonings behind FACTS. This is very important especially for me, because I was making assumptions, while he told me to use FACTS.
Also, that might sound stupid but he's not saying BS half of the time like some coachs do. I had one coach who I felt had a very low poker level, but the way Gordon talks, you can see that he already went through the level you'll want to reach.
So I'll take more lessons from him, 250$ is not crazy for SS/MS players who would like to crush their games.
------Again: This offer is limited. Rate may go up any time, so make sure you lock yourself up a deal --------------
re: #1 Ranked Online Poker Courses /// www.BestPokerCoaching.com /// NEW $100k Coaching System
First I was skeptical because his advice didn't sound like what you would regard as “standard”.
Gordon is VERY systematic despite what he teaches you is rather unorthodox, he is a good and funny guy that overuse the word BS lol. He changed my perspective on aggression, weirdly, he told me to be tight, but probably not in the way you might think. My aggression is rather high nowadays and I am probably the most aggressive person on any random table I am playing at.
Gordon was very persistent in the sense that he was always reminded me important stuff so I could reach my goals, doing homework, which was fun and interesting homework by the way, unlike high school homework. He obviously cares about his students and that you do well, maybe sometimes he over pushes you but I believe this to be good.
The BEST part of his coaching I believe is that he will point out leaks of yours and your opponents and then he will proceed to give you very simple ways to exploit those leaks, I hate to recommend him just because it feels like it will make the games thoughter...
