Heart CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

Hey guys CRAIBaby here!

Many of you might know me from my PGCs 😊
For those who don’t here’s some info about me!


Introduction

I am a 23 year old who quit his finance job around 2 years ago to pursue the poker dream. For this, I moved to Thailand with 10k to my name and an all-in or nothing attitude. It was a hard but very fulfilling journey and I have not just greatly improved in poker, but also learned a lot about life itself. I have been playing 500z for around one year and my approach to poker is extremely theoretical. I love the game for its theoretical complexity and have always seen it as more of a personal intellectual challenge than as a competition between me and others.
I was initially planning to play a lot of volume at 1kNL+ this month, as my girlfriend is currently on a vacation with her family. Coincidentally, something extremely unexpected has happened to me the same day that she left: awakening (Yup that’s a thing and it can happen to you too! ). Naturally, the motivation to play poker has drastically decreased since, as anything lower than 500z does not bring me as much joy, as strategies are extremely simple, and anything higher takes a lot of effort to get volume in, given todays seatscripting climate.
Surprisingly, life after awakening still continues, which means considerations about the future, including finances are still relevant, even if to a much lesser degree.
As I will be playing less poker, I decided to coach more, which is something I have always enjoyed. I currently already have multiple students in a CFP and also coach students with an hourly rate.
I am here to advertise my hourly coaching, but before we move onto that, here are my results this year!


Personal Results & Guarantee

I thought this would be a great opportunity to come clean with my infamous 500NLz graph I posted in my PGC, which shows my results since beginning of 2018 to April:


As many have assumed, the red and bluelines are in fact switched! So gratz to all those who have figured that out :P I posted this for illusory bragging rights as well as the idea that this would give me an additional edge in hope that opponents would be over adjusting vs me. To this day, I still wonder whether or not the loose calls that followed came from that, or whether people were just stations in general :P

Since then I have barely played but the graph looks like this (Stars only, had some good results on Party, but not sure how to retrieve HH and can’t really be bothered with their Support :P):





Before all the volume warriors tune in, I am aware that my volume is very low for a full-time professional (had alot of other stuff going on!) :P While there might be the one or the other belief of me being a sick sunrunner, I personally believe my true winrate at 500NLz would be around 6-10evbb. Either way, I offer a guarantee to any prospective students, that if anyone is not happy with the coaching they are free to immediately reclaim whatever they paid for the session! (With the condition that they say so immediately, of course.)



Coaching Rates

For the rates, I decided that I will go with a dynamic coaching rate, as the material that I will cover will be dependent on the individual skill level of the student. I want to be able to help as many people as possible, while still maintaining a base level of profitability for myself.
For future students, this means that after an initial Skype call, we will mutually agree to a rate that works for both of us. In this call, we will talk about your needs and expectations, and how we will work on them.
Here is an approximation of how the rate will look like depending on your level of poker sophistication.


Package deals can be arranged 😊 (And I usually recommend this!)



Life Coaching & Spiritual Advice

Last but definitely not least, it is also important to me that I give my best life/spiritual advice for anyone that is interested in improving their well-being (I hope you all are)! This will be entirely free, but for longer sessions, I propose the concept of a voluntary donation (Perhaps something around 60 USD/hr) but as I said this amount depends entirely up to you and I am happy to help you for free if you do not have the financial means! This offer also goes for people who are not interested in the poker aspect of my coaching offering.
For any questions, please feel free to post in this thread or pm me on here! We can then move the conversation onto Skype 😊



All the love
CRAIBaby

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

As someone who has spent a lot of time with CRAIBaby, I can attest highly to his poker skills, integrity and also his willingness to provide value beyond what is expected of him. In the last year that we've known each other, I have seen him grow exceptionally both in his poker playing ability and as a teacher.

I have no doubt that he will be able to provide you with coaching that is far beyond your expectations, assisting you not only in poker but also in other aspects of life. If you're currently in search of direction in poker and looking to make rapid progress, I would highly recommend CRAI as your coach of choice.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

I had my first contact with CRAIBaby (below CRAI) back in February this year totally impressed by the graph in his PGC, especially about the sick red line i as many believed to be non showdown winnings especially as CRAI confirmed it after multiple queries whether he didn´t change the colors of the lines now corrected to actually be the showdown winnings.
Back in the day, I was stuck on NL20 for quite some time and was trying to get some type of new impulse to move my level and stakes up. As I saw the graph with probably the sickest red line (debatable non showdown winnings) I have seen my entire life, I decided to get in touch with him- believing maybe CRAI is exactly what I am looking for in my current state of poker to get better.

This turned out to be not the case.
After sending him a private message we moved the conversation over to Skype. At first, we discussed my current knowledge of poker, me letting him clearly know that I had actually done lots of preflop work with another 500z reg, and I am probably slightly loosing on NL50 at that stage.
CRAI told me that I would actually need 10 hours of coaching with him to become an easy Nl100 winning player and another 10 hours to be winning on Nl200.
Skype Chat
He had totally convinced me with these promises that getting coached by him was my next step. As we got close to the deal, CRAI even made bigger promises telling me that now even 5 hours of coaching will be enough to make me a Nl100 winning player (reminder: I was slightly winning at Nl20 back then).
Further Skype Chat
We decided to go for a 1k pre coaching payment which will be equivalent to 5 hours of coaching before my next 2k poker profit will also be paid to him to get another 5 hours of coaching and afterwards sending another 1k of poker profit over to him. Honestly back then with these huge promises made by CRAI i was thinking that this was actually the best thing that could have happened in my life, so I was just happy to start working with him. I should have known better.

I had sent him the 1k and it was time for our first coaching session. CRAI told me that he wanted to start with preflop despite I had clearly pointed out that this was actually is the strongest part of my game as I had worked on preflop with a 500z winner over a huge sample. I was a little uncertain whether doing preflop again would be a good decision but CRAI told me had the GTO preflop staff set up so I unwillingly agreed.
As the coaching session started, I got the feeling that CRAI was pretty bad prepared. We basically talked one hour about RFI ranges jumping back and forth without any clear "red line", staff I had already worked on for quite some time, and I was pretty confident on being my biggest strength. He gave me SB vs BB PIO ranges which I already had as well as the big blind defending ranges against different VPIP and different OR sizes. We didn´t get any further into 4-betting and 5-betting ranges.
To sum it up, this coaching session was a complete shock for me and I didnt take any use out of it.

If i pay money for some type of advice, I am aware that not all part of a coaching hour are completly new to the student however paying 400$ for a person explaining Snowie preflop ranges which I already knew and telling me I should not tell them to anyone else seemed as they are secret to me seemed completely strange.
https://gyazo.com/09a8321a944bc1aefdeea9f9659dbfa5

After this session, an unlucky event happening in my personal life and a conversation with a Nl5k reg who I won´t mention here I talked about the coaching and the promises CRAI gave me, I decided to break up the coaching. I knew he wouldn´t give me my full money back, I was asking for 600$ refund, so he could get his actual 400$ for the session which was also the overall amount he was aiming for per hour.
The promises CRAI made ahead of our coaching were not realistic in my opinion but everyone has to make up his mind if 5 hours of coaching until beating NL100 as a slight Nl20 winner is realistic.
CRAI was not well-prepared ahead of your coaching session, tried to explain and make me learn new things however gave me information I already had which was for free out there on the internet. Based on these experience I would not recommend anyone to start working with CRAI.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

First and foremost I want to state towards other readers of this thread, that what ben is talking about is a completely distorted version of actual happenings. I myself am pretty surprised and shocked about this and wonder where this is coming from, feel free to read on if you are interested in a detailed breakdown.




Hey Benny,


I'm sorry you feel that way and wish you would have told me any of this! I personally recollect the story very differently and wonder where this personal attack is coming from. Either way I do not want to dive deeper into personal differences here (which I didnt know existed, btw) and just stay factual and defend my public coaching listing which you very evidently are trying to shed negative light on...


- If I recall correctly you were absolutely begging me to take you on as a student, promising you would put all your effort into this and begged me to make a special deal with you in order for you to pay for the coaching which I accepted after thinking about it for a long time. Yes I was confident that given how much enthusiasm you were showing, that you would be able to beat 100z after 10 hours of coaching and 200z after another 10 hrs. However I do wish to point out that I did tell you that this would have to include the personal effort that you have promised outside of the coaching sessions.

- I didnt really do much convincing, you were pretty much begging me to accept you as my student so I really dont understand where all of this is coming from...

- I dont really understand what the point of these two skype screenshots are, since we never had more than one session. Why are you not posting any skype screenshots of the other things you mention afterwards?

- You were pretty open to the idea about starting with preflop... That was merely a suggestion from me which you accepted so I dont know why you are making up stories?

- The session: Your preflop game was absolutely terrible, there was so much to fix and we talked about so many things... It surprises me that you felt like this was such a horrible session. Why did you not tell me this then instead of acting like you really enjoyed the coaching? The content of the coaching wrt which ranges I gave you, us not talking about 4b and 5b, thats all just complete lies so Im just sitting here in confusion not really knowing what to write in response to that.

- Now you're talking about Snowie preflop ranges which is also absolutely random. I never used Snowie preflop ranges in my life... Also not sure what this screenshot is supposed to demonstrate. Yes I told you information that I consider extremely valuable. Sorry for that?

- I then refunded you whatever you asked for. Is that also something that I did wrong?



When I made this thread I expected some trolls from 2p2 talking about the volume but this was really unexpected...

So your overall TLDR is that I promised you too much according to you (even though we never had more than one session) and that my coaching sucked according to you, and that I refunded it. I guess I can live with that and I hope potential students are not discouraged by this, given its out of proportion illusory nature.

No hard feelings though and I wish you the best of luck in your future journey, however I would certainly recommend that you do not do these type of shady actions to other people since there are certainly people who would take this extremely personal and react differently.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

Hey, I have known OP for a while now and believe he is a legitimate character, I think his game is very strong and respected. In today’s environment a strong fundamental/theoretical approach, which he excels at, is very important. All in all good value for anyone looking to improve their game.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

Just to clarify:

The reason why I described the above as a personal attack is because its not rational, its not factual, there is obvious malicious intent (why else would you distort reality to make it look worse than it is).

I guess I'll give one example of something he made up: Apparently we did not talk about 4betting or 5betting. We talked atleast 15 minutes about 4betting alone. Ben was using a polarized 4betting strategy OOP which consisted of AA KK and A5s. I corrected this and explained to him in detail why this is not recommended.

Obviously everyone is welcome to criticize anything they don't like about me or my coaching, but guys, this is a business so please stay factual, and if you have any personal problems with me, pm me or write to me on Skype!

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

Just gonna give my two cents, I've been in CRAI's CFP coaching group for a couple months now and my game has improved immensely despite the fact that we have kept things fairly simple to start off with. He definitely knows his **** and I highly recommend his coaching for those who need it and are willing to put the work in.

As for Ben's comments I can't speak for him but I can say that I haven't had the same experience at all. When we did individual sessions CRAI was quick to find my biggest leaks and help me fix them, so I felt the time was spent very effectively.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

Obviously he doesn’t want to give up away too much information in a public forum for free but OP told me various other examples of preflop problems (other than the public example above) which just give the entire post a very suspicious vibe to me. The whole post says stuff like “my preflop ranges were very good” + “I didn’t need to work on them/didn’t want to” yet OP gave me multiple (and one public above) clear examples which showed why this area needed work. I also don’t see what any of the screenshots prove..

I am obviously biased, being a friend of OPs but I would encourage readers to consider both sides of the story before letting that influence them. OP can speak for himself but obviously anyone who tries can give their feedback here, and even get refund if they truly don’t believe there is value as advertised.

Have had multiple sessions with Wey (CRAIBaby). He helped me make the switch from NLHU to 6max. Can definitely recommend, great player and coach and really wants to give value.

I am totally impressed how much I improved my game and mental attitude due to Wey's coaching. Before almost every session seems like a struggle, now I feel more confident with my game. I had few coaches before but he is simply the best.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

I do not know how good Crai is as a coach. But when a coach claims that a student after 5 hours of coaching will crush 100z after he is barely winning at 20z and not having basic knowledge about preflop fundamentals, would make me very suspicious. This kind of promises from coaches are mostly very unrealistic and their goal is it mostly to make fast money.

But maybe Crai has the magic pill, who knows. Just my 2 cents.

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

Hello everyone,

I’ll share some context for my first post ever:

Poker:
I have been a student of Crai’s for 3 months. I am Canadian, and I play on Pokerstars. I have been playing poker for 9 months, starting as a complete beginner. I started coaching while playing at 10/25 NL. I had gone though the RYE elementary cash game prior, but I had just learned about how your position preflop decided the order of play post-flop.

Personal: I am 32, male, and a full-time university athlete-student. My sport is track, but I have participated in many sports throughout my life, Soccer and Football being the dominant ones. I am also an Infantry Afghanistan war veteran. So, I feel I have had a fair amount of training and coaching in my lifetime.

Crai sent me, obviously others too, a skype message yesterday:

“Hey guys, I posted a 2p2 Coaching Thread - Feel free to post a review about how you feel about my poker abilities on and off the tables https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/1...#post54420332”

I felt more than compelled to review him.

Poker
While I am not even close to a level that I would be able to personally rate Crai as a poker player based on skill, I can say two things:

Why I like Crai as a poker professional:
The first thing I noticed about Crai, that gave me confidence to take him on as a coach was his professionalism. He will tell you a story about how he treated poker like a regular professional job, he would dress up, in a suit, or a tie while playing poker online, like you would with any normal job. The second thing that caught my eye was his life outside of poker. He meditated, ate well, tried to keep life balanced. The final thing that intrigued me about him was that he admitted when he was wrong, and although his general demeanor betrays him, he is humble.

Playing against Crai:
After a few weeks of study and practice, I had an opportunity to play against Crai in a play money game with his students. Compared to the pools of players I have played with, I had no Idea what Crai was doing, and when I didn’t have the perceived nuts he stomped all over me. When I did have the perceived nuts, he was quick to realize and shut down his aggression very fast. All in all, he was very frustrating to play against.


Coaching
Coaching style adjectives: Direct, Personal, Empowering, Caring, Motivating, Powerful, Transparent, Patient, Cathartic, Passion driven, Available, Understanding, Flexible, Confident

Crai’s Life Coaching: He put almost as an after thought on his post, but I’d like to address it first. I honestly think that 60 USD/ hour for a poker player is a ridiculously cheap price. If you have stress, ego, tilt mental leaks in poker, or in life there is no question in my mind, that he can assist you with that. His poker coaching has helped me in my life, which I will be forever grateful for. The rate is not even expensive relative to the mainstream industry.

Crai’s Poker Coaching:
I am completely blown away with Crais as a coach. If anybody wants to ask more questions about my experience, feel free to do so

Opportunities for improvement: The biggest opportunity for improvement I have of Crai’s coaching is that his personality is big. I can see how some students could feel overwhelmed. If you have troubles being honest with yourself or others, aren’t in a place where you can handle taking direct productive criticism, or you have troubles speaking up, you may have troubles getting exactly what you need from him. I do not have a solution to this for him, but in his defense, he is patient and caring enough that I feel he would figure out something is missing eventually if you were patient with him.

My experience with Crai as my coach:

I think it would be obvious that anyone could coach a beginner and teach them something, so I won’t waste your time with that experience, but I will give some highlights.

1. After being taught basic strategy, preflop play and etc, and a week of practice and play with it, I had a hand review session. In this session we were to bring our biggest losing hands, which I did, no matter how bad they were. The hands were quite embarrassing, but Crai did not mock me or belittle me, but he did call me out and criticized my reasoning for playing this way. He said something to the extent of if I wanted to be a professional, I could not play this way, he also addressed what seemed to him to be a massive mental leak. While, admittedly, I was on the edge of tears, I absorbed what I could and just listened. After the session was over he messaged me and advised me to move down to 2 NL, to stop me from losing my bankroll while I work on my mental game and strategy. I did just that and focused on my mental game outside of poker, seriously reflecting on the issues he brought up.

2. We had a 30k hand monthly goal in mind, however, I had run into some personal issues within my first month, and they were wreaking mental havoc on me, so he assured me that I should avoid playing poker, to focus on study and sorting out my life first. Then he did something unexpected, he offered me an ear to listen if I needed. Amongst his constant reminders that he cares inside and outside of poker for his student, this was the first time I understood that.

3. He puts in effort, Crai doesn’t just wing it from what he knows, he does extra research, and even makes documents to hand out or presentations. If you are having a specific problem, he puts in the effort to try and get to the bottom of it. I am confident that as I move up his coaching will be specific and relative at every level.

Not only do I think Crai is a fantastic coach for poker, I honestly think he’d make a great coach for anything. If I could convince him to learn about running and convince him to coach me in track I totally would. Please Crai?

Final thoughts: If you have Ageist tendencies, IE not wanting to be coached by someone younger, I implore you to not let that affect your choice in reaching out to Crai as a coach, you really won’t notice it. I honestly could go on longer, but I am student and I just wrote a 2.5-page paper for my coach when I need to be studying, so Ill call it here.

Vote Crai for President! You won’t regret it! 😉

While I cannot speak to that specific situation, I know from recent personal experience that Crai is not motivated by money.

I am also skeptical of someone who would take a person saying you'll have a certain result, in a certain amount of time as a god given guarantee. Life happens, everyone is different, and if my coach said that I'd take it with a grain of salt, but I'd be ecstatic of the coaches belief in me and his confidence. Especially with something that is like poker in which the majority of the onus is on the student with a small portion on the coaching, and a small portion of luck.

My 1 BB worth

Well he didn't say 5 hours and you don't know how good he is so that goes down as one of the most useless posts I've ever seen.

As I have played a bunch with him and discussed hands with Wey I will offer my 2 cents. He's meticulous, determined and he won't mind me saying this when I say he's a complete nerd when it comes to playing as close to correctly as possible! The kid is a perfectionist. He's extremely tough to play and works very hard.
He also has a good sense of humour so I imagine most students would be able to develop a good rapport with him.

Gl to those who work with him, it will be a good investment of time and money.

I hope at least he gets some students who are able to read...

Introduction

I am a 23 year old who quit his finance job around 2 years ago to pursue the poker dream. For this, I moved to Thailand with 10k to my name and an all-in or nothing attitude. It was a hard but very fulfilling journey and I have not just greatly improved in poker, but also learned a lot about life itself. I have been playing 500z for around one year and my approach to poker is extremely theoretical. I love the game for its theoretical complexity and have always seen it as more of a personal intellectual challenge than as a competition between me and others.
I was initially planning to play a lot of volume at 1kNL+ this month, as my girlfriend is currently on a vacation with her family. Coincidentally, something extremely unexpected has happened to me the same day that she left: awakening (Yup that’s a thing and it can happen to you too! ). Naturally, the motivation to play poker has drastically decreased since, as anything lower than 500z does not bring me as much joy, as strategies are extremely simple, and anything higher takes a lot of effort to get volume in, given todays seatscripting climate.
Surprisingly, life after awakening still continues, which means considerations about the future, including finances are still relevant, even if to a much lesser degree.
As I will be playing less poker, I decided to coach more, which is something I have always enjoyed. I currently already have multiple students in a CFP and also coach students with an hourly rate.
I am here to advertise my hourly coaching, but before we move onto that, here are my results this year!


Personal Results & Guarantee

I thought this would be a great opportunity to come clean with my infamous 500NLz graph I posted in my PGC, which shows my results since beginning of 2018 to April:


As many have assumed, the red and bluelines are in fact switched! So gratz to all those who have figured that out :P I posted this for illusory bragging rights as well as the idea that this would give me an additional edge in hope that opponents would be over adjusting vs me. To this day, I still wonder whether or not the loose calls that followed came from that, or whether people were just stations in general :P

Since then I have barely played but the graph looks like this (Stars only, had some good results on Party, but not sure how to retrieve HH and can’t really be bothered with their Support :P):





Before all the volume warriors tune in, I am aware that my volume is very low for a full-time professional (had alot of other stuff going on!) :P While there might be the one or the other belief of me being a sick sunrunner, I personally believe my true winrate at 500NLz would be around 6-10evbb. Either way, I offer a guarantee to any prospective students, that if anyone is not happy with the coaching they are free to immediately reclaim whatever they paid for the session! (With the condition that they say so immediately, of course.)



Coaching Rates

For the rates, I decided that I will go with a dynamic coaching rate, as the material that I will cover will be dependent on the individual skill level of the student. I want to be able to help as many people as possible, while still maintaining a base level of profitability for myself.
For future students, this means that after an initial Skype call, we will mutually agree to a rate that works for both of us. In this call, we will talk about your needs and expectations, and how we will work on them.
Here is an approximation of how the rate will look like depending on your level of poker sophistication.


Package deals can be arranged 😊 (And I usually recommend this!)



Life Coaching & Spiritual Advice

Last but definitely not least, it is also important to me that I give my best life/spiritual advice for anyone that is interested in improving their well-being (I hope you all are)! This will be entirely free, but for longer sessions, I propose the concept of a voluntary donation (Perhaps something around 60 USD/hr) but as I said this amount depends entirely up to you and I am happy to help you for free if you do not have the financial means! This offer also goes for people who are not interested in the poker aspect of my coaching offering.
For any questions, please feel free to post in this thread or pm me on here! We can then move the conversation onto Skype 😊



All the love

Re: CRAIBaby's Coaching Offering! (Dynamic Coaching Rates)

I have a lot of positive things to say about Wey.


Not only does he crush the games he plays, but his ability to break down complex areas in a way that's easy to understand is second to none.

I've had coaching from many different places but I think Weys approach and thought process is what really helped me rise up in the stakes.

He made it clear to me that just getting coaching isn't a magic pill. I had to put in a lot of hard work on my end in order to achieve success.

I highly recommend anyone to give him a shot!
