When you say 1-2 players are you talking about 200nl online ?

So if I disagree with you, I am trolling.

And if I ask you, a very successful coach, to explain concept of poker as an art form, I am trolling.

What can I actually post in this thread that isn't considered trolling?

Online is different of course. I coach 400 / 600 online 6max, however I know there are quite a few 200nl online players who are well up to snuff, so if they had a critique for me AND they have a nice winning record to stand on---then yes, I would always listen to what they would say at least.

Here I have both microstake players (50nl) as well as low limit NLH players who upon inspection it is obvious they barely win at 1-2 live. If these players diss my coaching, then I pay no attention, correct.

We can use a concrete example, such as how is whether to 3bet pre an art rather than math.

Thank god most players only look at the first couple of pages on this thread and skip the 2+2 gang of haters who just diss for the sake of it. Just like Bert stating Bart Hanson (with his great reputation) is pathetic.

Clearly just typing to be typing and is the shame of public forums.

You ignore replies directed at you, and spin spin just like a politician. And it is very obvious what you are doing.

And i do. So do my real students.

All of you other guys who just fly in from the rafters, i guess it doesnt matter your agenda. You are not a prospective student, and come here to throw in your digs of wisdom?

Every new student so far has roflol at my haters here, and then move right on into coaching. As they should. And strangely enough, just like any "good" business, they are happy with the results after time.

You guys should get together and get your stories straight. Farha already admitted that even he would say I can train 1-2 and 2-5 players to win. Well Jesus, that is what i do. No more, no less.

re: LIVE NO LIMIT HOLDEM CASH GAME COACHING 1/2, 2/5, 5/10 Blind. Online 6max too.

I guess it is once again time to advertise some "real" facts, from a real ANLpoker student.

This student freely admits he was at best break even at 2-5 when he corralled me at the Bellagio to coach him. He had never seen anyone play like me before he said, and so I agreed to take this journey with him. He asked me, I did not solicit him.

After 6 hours per week of session grinding for upwards of 1.5 yrs, I took him from 10nl 6max to 600nl 6max 12 tabling --winning at a rate of ~3.5bb/100 at the 600nl and higher at the lower limits. I trained him at cash live as well and he at the time was killing the 2-5 and the Aria over time and started entering tourneys, winning 200k on stars, 330k twice at the WSOP along with a nice bracelet.


JUSTIN OLIVER

Here is his interview at High Roller radio giving the world his view of what my coaching did for him.

http://highrollerradio.net/interviews_6.html
Click on the interview button just below Justin Oliver's name.


So listen to a person who took hours upon hours of training with me firsthand and what it did for him, or listen to players who dont even understand the winning concepts that I leak on the forums from time to time. You be the judge.




The proof is within the real students reviews. I have multiple emails of students that I can give you should you decide to contact other students to hear their review of my coaching.

Meanwhile I will always have my group of protesters hanging around with their signs of apparent jealousy.









ANOTHER ANLPOKER STUDENT--------POST 10 OF THIS THREAD

Post 10 in this thread from a student of well over 1.5 yrs.

When he met me he was winning around $14 per hour over ~1200 hours.

From that point his aggregate winrate became $57 per hour over~1000 hours and as of today it is in the $60s/hr.

He diligently worked with me in skype session, as well as my email hand analysis program and it is quite obvious that my coaching had much to do with this change in avg. winrate over a decent sample.





--------------------------------------

Hi Bill, glad to see your new coaching thread is up and running. Wanted to stop by and give my thoughts.

Dear 2+2ers,

I feel lucky to have stumbled upon Bill's coaching ad; it's not an understatement to say that meeting him and working with him has been life-changing for me.

I completed and sent in his Intro Quiz around 07/23/2013 and have been taking lessons via Skype since then (usually one 1-hour session per week). As I’m writing this, today's date is 04/02/2014, by the way.
________________________________________

I know people like facts, so let's start there:

I keep accurate records. BEFORE I started coaching with Bill, I had played 1,142 hours of live poker, almost entirely 2/5 NLHE. During that time I made $17,090. And so my winrate was $14.96 per hour during that span.

AFTER I started getting coaching with Bill, I have played 928 hours of live poker, entirely 2/5 NLHE. During that time I have made $53,242. And so my winrate has been over $57 per hour during that span.
________________________________________

A quick step back in time...around July 2013, I got fed up with my level of play. I knew that I had a lot of potential to get better, and I knew that there were all kinds of moves I could be making that I simply wasn't aware of and that I didn't learn in the books I had read. I knew it's not just about "play tight, play good cards, be patient." I knew the importance of aggression, but I didn't know how to temper it and use it appropriately. Then I was extremely fortunate to decide to get coaching and find Bill...

In the approximately 8 months I've been studying with Bill, I have come to see the game of NLHE in a completely different way than before. Bill is showing me how to take control of my game, and not simply wait around for good hands/situations to arise.

I'm not just making more money, but I'm also enjoying the game a lot more. As a very competitive person, I'm not happy just waiting around hoping to get good cards. Instead, I want to put myself into situations where I can frequently outplay my opponents, get better and better at exploiting their weaknesses, etc. Bill is showing me how to do these things.

I still have a ton to learn and I still make mistakes - let’s face it, NLHE is a complex game with lots of variables, with the need to always be adjusting. But the difference now from where I was before meeting Bill is just night and day. I have way less confusion about my decisions at the table. I have much more confidence that when I choose a certain betsize, take an aggressive bluffing line, etc. that, whether I win or lose that particular hand, I know I'm playing mathematically/psychologically/logically correctly. Whether or not I'm in the hand with them at the time, I constantly notice mistakes that other players make...mistakes that I used to make and didn't even know were mistakes.

The biggest change to my game has been that I now play a much wider range of hands (especially in position) and I put a lot more pressure on my opponents, particularly with light 3-betting preflop and/or postflop creativity. I have greatly improved my ability to adjust my play based on things such as flop texture, type of opponent, my image, villain's image, etc. I have also radically changed my bet-sizing in various situations. Instead of before..."well, half-pot bet is standard...so I'll just do what's standard here I guess..." now I understand how choosing different bet sizes can make or save money, while also giving me more information, helping me to better read my opponents' hands.

Example scenario: Let’s imagine you’re at the table, someone has opened to $20 and he gets one caller before you. You’re in the cut-off and look down at AJ. Do you want to be like pretty much every other weak live player, who will say, “These cards are pretty good. I’ll just call and see the flop?” Well, that’s how I would’ve played that hand before meeting Bill. Weakly...passively...just another one of the MANY “trying to hit the flop or I’ll fold” type of players.

Another example: Now, imagine someone has opened to $20 and he gets one caller before you. You’re on the button and look down at...I don’t know...let’s say, K9s. I’ll raise to $80. Does that sound “wacky” to you? Does that sound “risky?” Would you normally have just folded this hand to the $20 raise? Well, a lot of times you’d be wrong to do that! This is just one simple, quick example of how you will come to radically change the whole way you look at the game of hold ‘em poker.

Does this sound exciting to you? To be the guy who’s being aggressive, making your opponents fear you? Learning to bluff with precision? And also getting paid off big when you have a good hand? Well, trust me, it’s very exciting, and very profitable!

Bill is a stellar coach, who has a really nice system and way of explaining concepts/hands/etc. He's also a good guy with a good attitude/sense of humor/etc., who makes it fun to learn. To anyone who decides to get going with a Skype coaching program with Bill, here's my best advice:

1. Put in the work! *Make sure you record the audio, go back through and take notes, review your notes regularly, etc. You might have to make certain mistakes over and over before certain things finally sink in.

2. Don't be scared to try concepts he's teaching you, even though they might make you uncomfortable at first. Sometimes you will try new things and fall flat on your face and lose a big pot. That's okay, 'cause that's part of learning. Once it all starts coming together, you will have several "lightbulb moments" where things just click, and you'll be like, "Ahhhh....NOW I understand how to do this and why this particular concept works!"

3. Don't be too hard on yourself after a losing streak. Conversely, don't get too over-confident after a winning streak. Poker will ALWAYS have variance, and anytime we think we're in control of this, we are simply fooling ourselves.

4. Try to make it your goal to MAKE CORRECT DECISIONS. At every point in the hand, on every street...every time you have to make a decision, really learn to think it through and pick the correct decision. Try to learn to separate yourself from the dollar figures. Beware of thoughts like, "well, he could be bluffing...he probably has me beat, but I guess I’ll call" even though he’s almost never bluffing in that particular situation, etc. Your goal when walking into the casino is to MAKE CORRECT DECISIONS...your goal is not “to win money today." Winning money is just a result, over the long run, of making correct decisions.

I could go on and on about all the stuff I've learned from Bill, but I've rambled enough already. In conclusion, meeting Bill has been amazing and becoming his student has been far and away the most plus EV poker move I've ever taken.


--------------------------





Listen to people who were smart, took on ANLpoker as their coaching tool, and now winning tons as "they" even claim was due my coaching to a very high degree.

It is obvious that others who would dismiss my coaching by whatever replies I have made in teh forums here, basically just havent risen to a level where they are qualified to judge.

4/ Bill cannot teach you to beat 5/10 as the games are considerably more advanced (not sure I agree about the B's 5/10 being advanced unless it changed in the past 12 months since I played in it for 3, but the softness of that specific game is another topic. However, kudos fot beating it at anything over 6BB ).

So you and Bill are agreeing on 3 out of 4 points. Does the fact you don't agree on the 4th, or the fact that you believe games can be crushed for more in terms of BB/h really need to generate walls of attacks in his thread, no matter how well and respecfully written they are (but still incredibly insulting, such as when you suggest that Bill won at poker by setmining all his life)?

What I still don't get is why come to someone's place of business even if virtual and raise up such a storm saying "hey he's overcharging for his services" or "you could do without his services all the free information is out there on poker forums"? Wouldnt a 5 line post basically saying "Bill is too expensive, so read forums, do your homework and get all the info for free" do it? And even that is borderline douchy.

So basically, you believe Bill is too expensive of a coach, or that a coach is not needed to beat 1/2 2/5 for say 8BB/h. Ok fine, message received loud and clear. Can we avoid pages of discussions on a topic that will not be resolved, and saddly get the real trolls to come out from under their smelly bridge? (yes there are some in this thread, whether in the pure inet sense of the word, people looking to get a reaction from Bill, or just referring to keyboard warriors with zero credibility lashing out on a forum).
Sorry for not responding immediately, I am not in Vegas right now and just had my laptop die yesterday.

Your oversimplifying what I'm saying and more importantly the reasons that I and many others feel this way about Bill.

Just ignoring the fact that he stole material (lol at ignoring this, but ok), his poker coaching is not as up to par as it should be for a guy who claims himself to be a crusher. He isn't flat out lying, he is being deceptive and manipulating things to sell himself.

I really do believe he made 7bb or whatever in the Bellagio 5/10 game 7 years ago. The problem is that those results are completely irrelevant in today's poker. I'll say it again, Bill, you will come nowhere near close to that winrate today. Nowhere near. This winrate is not unattainable either. You having that posted in the OP is not a lie, but it incredibly misleading and misrepresents your current skill set. Same thing with leaving out the fact that you stole material, you're not outright lying, you're just being shady as hell.

Bill can teach people to beat 1/2 and 2/5. I have no idea how many time I have to flat out write that out in the open for the world to see. Bill seems to constantly overlook that and say "students!!!" "agenda!!!" "trolls!!!" "rediculous!!111" over and over without refuting the other things I bring up.

The issue that I have (aside from plagiarism) is that just about anyone who is winning in these games can do the same thing he does. Now of course, just because it's easy doesn't mean that he doesn't have a right to sell his services, but when he misrepresents himself, posts irrelevant results and using shady marketing like hiding the fact he stole from another coach, this is a problem.

I want to express that people can get the same thing for much cheaper, or if they want to spend large chunks of money, there are much better outlets than a shady thief who uses terms like " higher level concepts" "betsizing is an art" and ffs "mechanical 3betting" with J4o.

If Bill was a squeaky clean guy that represented himself well and sold himself for what he is, an average at best poker player (who doesn't play at all anymore) that can help people who struggle at the lower levels, I wouldn't post in here.

Even if he only misrepresented his modern ability he certainly wouldn't be the first coach to do that, but I and others feel the need to post in here to call you out on all your BS and lies. I started posting in here after the thievery, despite me being skeptical of you for a long time.

How on earth is it "complete absurdity" to have you disclose that you got caught stealing? It's bad for your business, yes, but that's your own fault. You don't get to steal and then claim you don't have to disclose this to potential consumers because you decided so based on big business behaving just as shady. Twoplustwo is an absolute joke as well for even letting you stay here.

You claim that the stealing was an accident and everything I post just gets ignored by you claiming I have an "agenda" so can you directly answer this?

What an amazing coincidence that after all I have posted this is the one thing you cherrypick out to address after I had to say it to you about four times because you were too thick to realize what I'm saying.

re: LIVE NO LIMIT HOLDEM CASH GAME COACHING 1/2, 2/5, 5/10 Blind. Online 6max too.

Let us stick to listening to players who actually experienced ANLpoker coaching. Not from those that state I cannot coach, yet have no authority whatsoever to make such statements.

Again, these are the reviews worth paying attention to as they have relevance. Bystanders to my coaching have literally no place in which to judge.




This student freely admits he was at best break even at 2-5 when he corralled me at the Bellagio to coach him. He had never seen anyone play like me before he said, and so I agreed to take this journey with him. He asked me, I did not solicit him.

I trained him at cash live as well and he at the time was killing the 2-5 and the Aria over time and started entering tourneys, winning 200k on stars, 330k twice at the WSOP along with a nice bracelet.

Here is his interview at High Roller radio giving the world his view of what my coaching did for him.

He has only won approx. $900k in tourneys and crushing live 5-10 for years now after 1.5 years of extensive 6 hour per week coaching at ANLpoker. Dont take my word for it, listen to the man himself.

Instead, I want to put myself into situations where I can frequently outplay my opponents, get better and better at exploiting their weaknesses, etc. Bill is showing me how to do these things.

I still have a ton to learn and I still make mistakes - let’s face it, NLHE is a complex game with lots of variables, with the need to always be adjusting. But the difference now from where I was before meeting Bill is just night and day. I have way less confusion about my decisions at the table. I have much more confidence that when I choose a certain betsize, take an aggressive bluffing line, etc. that, whether I win or lose that particular hand, I know I'm playing mathematically/psychologically/logically correctly. Whether or not I'm in the hand with them at the time, I constantly notice mistakes that other players make...mistakes that I used to make and didn't even know were mistakes.

The biggest change to my game has been that I now play a much wider range of hands (especially in position) and I put a lot more pressure on my opponents, particularly with light 3-betting preflop and/or postflop creativity. I have greatly improved my ability to adjust my play based on things such as flop texture, type of opponent, my image, villain's image, etc. I have also radically changed my bet-sizing in various situations. Instead of before..."well, half-pot bet is standard...so I'll just do what's standard here I guess..." now I understand how choosing different bet sizes can make or save money, while also giving me more information, helping me to better read my opponents' hands.

Example scenario: Let’s imagine you’re at the table, someone has opened to $20 and he gets one caller before you. You’re in the cut-off and look down at AJ. Do you want to be like pretty much every other weak live player, who will say, “These cards are pretty good. I’ll just call and see the flop?” Well, that’s how I would’ve played that hand before meeting Bill. Weakly...passively...just another one of the MANY “trying to hit the flop or I’ll fold” type of players.

Another example: Now, imagine someone has opened to $20 and he gets one caller before you. You’re on the button and look down at...I don’t know...let’s say, K9s. I’ll raise to $80. Does that sound “wacky” to you? Does that sound “risky?” Would you normally have just folded this hand to the $20 raise? Well, a lot of times you’d be wrong to do that! This is just one simple, quick example of how you will come to radically change the whole way you look at the game of hold ‘em poker.

Does this sound exciting to you? To be the guy who’s being aggressive, making your opponents fear you? Learning to bluff with precision? And also getting paid off big when you have a good hand? Well, trust me, it’s very exciting, and very profitable!

Bill is a stellar coach, who has a really nice system and way of explaining concepts/hands/etc. He's also a good guy with a good attitude/sense of humor/etc., who makes it fun to learn. To anyone who decides to get going with a Skype coaching program with Bill, here's my best advice:

1. Put in the work! *Make sure you record the audio, go back through and take notes, review your notes regularly, etc. You might have to make certain mistakes over and over before certain things finally sink in.

2. Don't be scared to try concepts he's teaching you, even though they might make you uncomfortable at first. Sometimes you will try new things and fall flat on your face and lose a big pot. That's okay, 'cause that's part of learning. Once it all starts coming together, you will have several "lightbulb moments" where things just click, and you'll be like, "Ahhhh....NOW I understand how to do this and why this particular concept works!"

3. Don't be too hard on yourself after a losing streak. Conversely, don't get too over-confident after a winning streak. Poker will ALWAYS have variance, and anytime we think we're in control of this, we are simply fooling ourselves.

4. Try to make it your goal to MAKE CORRECT DECISIONS. At every point in the hand, on every street...every time you have to make a decision, really learn to think it through and pick the correct decision. Try to learn to separate yourself from the dollar figures. Beware of thoughts like, "well, he could be bluffing...he probably has me beat, but I guess I’ll call" even though he’s almost never bluffing in that particular situation, etc. Your goal when walking into the casino is to MAKE CORRECT DECISIONS...your goal is not “to win money today." Winning money is just a result, over the long run, of making correct decisions.

I could go on and on about all the stuff I've learned from Bill, but I've rambled enough already. In conclusion, meeting Bill has been amazing and becoming his student has been far and away the most plus EV poker move I've ever taken.


--------------------------









Listen to people who were smart, took on ANLpoker as their coaching tool, and now winning tons as "they" even claim was due my coaching to a very high degree.

It is obvious that others who would dismiss my coaching by whatever replies I have made in teh forums here, basically just havent risen to a level where they are qualified to judge.

Just post your recent online results (post black friday). Twoplustwo is very good at exposing frauds, by coming here and offering your services you pretty much just walked into the lions den.

Also the only reason you have money to play poker at all is because you spread your mediocre poker knowledge at a rate of $130/hr to the masses. Then use that money to break-even online and win marginally live. lol what a joke

I saw you playing poker on bookmaker.eu a few months ago at 200NL under the famous name of ANL. So what is this nonsense of you coaching 400/600NL?

I have never played on bookmaker. Another player actually has AintNoLimit on other sites. Its not me.

And yes I coach several players who play 400 and 600nl every day multi-tabling 6max.

FINAL NOTICE

As apparently there is a nucleus of players who cannot let the article debacle go, here is my final word on the matter since I have already completely squared it with BalugaWhale.



Regarding the two articles in my essay packet; Yes - I made a mistake. I regret it, I'm sorry for it, and I've made it right with Andrew and we went away with a friendly smile, the both of us. My conscience is clear.

No limit holdem, especially live is absolutely an art form. Of course there is math involved, and so is psychology and a number of other skills, but pulling all of those skills together in the right proportions and applying them at the right time is nothing less than art. If you don't think that way, you aren't doing it right.

Look, I've had hundreds of students over the past 4 years. I've helped every one of them get better at their game, and I offer a no-risk, money back guarantee on every session. Many of my students have posted in this thread and others are available by arrangement to anyone who is serious about using my coaching services. I don't take bad players and make them break-even. I take students who are committed and help them become great in the games that they play. My student's success is my success, and that's all that's really important to me.

All further replies of mine will be to prospects who have legitimate questions regarding my coaching program. No others need addressing unless chosen to.

Baluga already said you were not very good in so many words. lol@ a smile on his face. I like how you got coaching from him like 7 years ago yet act like you guys are peers.

ANL, no one is questioning that your students believe that you're a good coach, and no one is doubting that those are your students.

It's a pretty underhanded move that you are flooding your own thread with positive reviews by copying and pasting previous reviews.

I asked you a legitimate question of what a prospective student would ask:

How is NL poker an art and how is math irrelevant.

I don't understand how an excellent coach that you claim to be can't answer such straight forward and basic question.

Let me try to make it even easier.

You mentioned specifically that bet sizing is more of an art than math, can you please elaborate?

How do you determine when to bet bigger and how is math irrelevant in that spot?
