anyone to make a small study group?

OK so I'm a 3/6 and 5/10 reg and I'm having a breakeven month (70k hands) which is very annoying. I've been getting coached by mdma for about 3 or 4 months but I've been thinking about other ways to help improve my game as unfortunately my coach can't give me all the hours of the day.

If anyone would be interested in creating a small study group with me for the purpose of recording videos with commentary for discussion within the group then let me know.

Re: anyone to make a small study group?

I'm thinking about the format now, but something along the lines of:

I'll set up a MSNL study group forum for us to communicate
We each record a 2 hour video per week with commentary and upload it
We each analyse one other group members video per week with commentary and upload it

So if we have 6 group members we should effectively have 6 two hour recordings with two people's perspectives, per week to enjoy.

Hmm seems quite alot, watching 10+ hours of poker vids per week (plus cardrunners and whatnot) seems quite a big commitment. Wouldn't 45mins-1hr be more reasonable?

Re: anyone to make a small study group?

well you dont have to watch them all, you would only be concerned with your own video and the persons whose video you would be nominated to analyse. However if you wanted to watch the other video's in the group, them you could do that at your leisure. Perhaps we as a group could give the videos a review in terms of how interesting/educational they are so you could choose which other videos you would want to watch.

Re: anyone to make a small study group?

I'd be interested in something w/ a couple FTP 2/4-5/10 players. Not so much making vids but doing 1 sweat session a week for each person w/ the other 2 people on conference and having some more people to discuss hands w/ thruout the week. I guess PM me if ur interested in this. Anymore than 2 is probably too many I think. No nits either.

Re: anyone to make a small study group?

Well if we can divide everyone per 4max group that would be nice. 30-45mins video is fine. 1hour would just be too long. + some HH and discussion afterwards.

Re: anyone to make a small study group?

I've had MDMA sweat me but I think it kinda sucks compared to recording/analysing video's of your play imo. Its best if you make mistakes in a video that you were not aware were mistakes until someone points it out and explains why. Often if you are being sweated by a better player your mind gets lazy and you just wait for them to tell you what to do.

Anyway it looks like there's going to be a lot of interest in this, I've set up a forum for it and am PMing anyone who posts with an interest here. With the holidays and stuff the plan is to get people registering for it now, and then maybe split into subgroups, with an aim to starting week beginning Monday 7th January

Re: anyone to make a small study group?

Heh. So much for the small group

I'm very interested in this as well. The problem is I'm just starting out in 2/4 so I don't know if I have much to offer when I'm critiquing another player's video. If I can still be in on it please PM me.

Cheers
