^^^^^ yepp adamc, he also does some mental game coaching for some guys on team 651 as well. he deals with getting people to put in more hours while getting healthier off the tables and making sure they have a strong schedule and routine, basically like a life coach for poker players. And most poker players desperately need this as we can be all over the place sometimes

Spiritedreal and Grindation are at war now. I wonder how such war begins? Cuz they grind peacefully at 500s for some time and then they are fighting? One starts to think that the other one is not worth 500s? Who do you think is going to win?
Did ChuckNorrisQ ever tried to climb higher stakes? In my opinion he is too good for 200s
the bots vs top regs are likely both gonna lose to rake but the bots are able to grind longer hours i would imagine, and also the bots will lose less then the regs on average so it would be difficult for a human reg to keep up with some bot that can play infinite hours. Im a nit with bankroll and i think you should have plenty of buyins to offset the emotional swings and make sure you never go bust or lose a huge portion of your liferoll. so when i moved up in stakes i had a 600 buyin rule. if you stick with that then you will be fine as long as you are good enough to be shooting as well. Im not sure how the war with spirite and grindation began but these kind of things tend to happen sometimes, no idea whos gonna win haha. chucknorris did play some 500s for a while a couple of years ago but not sure he was fully shooting,

i would say in the past it use to be a lot more exploitation, but these days people are just trying to get as close to gto as they can during reg wars. if you try to exploit a gto strategy you usually get burned.

Let me get this straight. Someone who got banned on stars for basically cheating, is now life coaching? Is that correct or did I misunderstand something?

unfortunately i'm not able to give you an opinion here on who has more value with what they offer because i haven't worked with them in a deep way. I do know that adam is more focused on schedule/routine/health side of things as elliot i think is more focused on tilt issues and priming players

this is correct yes, he does have some strong credentials. He was one of the biggest grinders of his time and always had his schedule optimized and was able to implement health and balance into his life. this is mainly what hes trying to do with guys. he is NOT coaching poker. he only coaches about lifestyle habits

this is for sure possible yes, there are some rich fish type of players that actually are able to beat regs at lower stakes but its not really possible for them to beat the regs at 500s+ without putting in an immense amount of studying and work with pio. If they did study with these tools then they wouldn't be fish anymore haha

yes for sure, also depends probably what stakes your playing. if your playing low stakes like 100s or below then there might be less bots, i dont know exactly tbh. i only know what others tell me about the other sites. i only play on pokerstars myself.

hi boss, this depends on a few things. for example how many games per month are you able to play? what is your ev roi? what is your ambition for moving up in stakes? how much time do you dedicate to studying on your own?. all of these things matter. If you want a general answer for microstakes i would have to think 50/50. We dont stake micro players on team 651, we are strictly accepting only 60s+ players so that i can personally give guys more of my attention. And thanks i really enjoy doing this

How much work does it require to get to the top in hypers? How much do you estimate the top regs spend on studying daily, or did spend in getting there?

Re: THE WELL: JACKSTACK99

After black friday did you consider switching to soft that accepts players from USA like WPN? If yes why did you decide to move abroad and would you come back to USA if PS would accept players from USA?
How talented player have you been? Winning player from very beginning? Did you study game from beginning or just played? When you started to study and how?
Are you optimistic about poker's online future? Do you think we will have legal online poker in USA and inflow of asian players soon?
If all stakes over 100s were deleted for heads up would you still play or retire?

A lot of work!!!!!! the top regs study consistently but that doesn't mean its everyday. Depends on the player anywhere between 2-5 hours a month to maintain gto knowledge, but all the top regs in the game today have went through a stage in their lives where they absolutely obsess over studying and grinding poker and in those years they spend 70-80 hours a week studying and grinding. When you immerse yourself in this way over a very long period of time your game improves drastically and after that you just need to maintain it with staying sharp with refreshing your mind just a few hours a week

no worries, i would say against recreationals about 4-6k games will tell you where your at as far as your winrate in the games and your true ev roi vs fish. Moving up in stakes is dependent on bankroll management but also on persistence, consistence, and adaptability. Also emotional strength and resilience. Its a combination of all of these factors, that's not to say that you need every single one of these things before moving up, these are all muscles you build in the process of moving up

80 games is no sample at all so i dont recommend doing that anytime soon, why do you have only 80 games? that's basically one day or less of grinding

i did consider that, i played on cake network for a month but it was soo slow and i hated the software, i also went to atlantic city for a couple of weeks to grind live cash games but couldn't stand those either, i just love online poker and the convenience of it. Deciding to move abroad was basically that i didnt like any of my other options. if online poker came back to US then ya sure i would move back, but it would have to be a site like pokerstars with a lot of traffic.

i was naturally talented luckily when i first started playing poker i was winning without doing much study, my bankroll management was terrible at first i would play stakes way too high for what i should have at that time, so i always built a roll at low stakes then busted at high stakes. Until i finally got in order with that and set super strict bankroll guidelines on myself. At first i just played i didn't study because i didn't even know how haha, i was a winning recreational basically. I started studying with pt4 and absolutely got obsessed with it, the filters and going through everything. There is soooo much you can do with pt4 its incredible, you just have to play around with it. At that time there was no pio or anything like that.

I am optimistic about the future of poker yes, when i say future i mean near future like the next 5 years or soo, after that i am not sure what will happen with these random bots coming around, if pstars can stay ahead of the bots somehow and get the best bot detection tools then online poker will stick around. Its the only thing imo that can kill online poker, so i would assume pstars will spend lots of money trying to get the bot situation handled, and soo far they have been doing a pretty good job at it. I do think online poker will come back to the US, but i am not sure as to when and i'm not counting on it. To your last question, i def would not retire. But i may move to a different field of work mostly and then grind poker on the side. I am a 1k reg and i haven't played 100 dollar games in atleast a couple of years so i would not want to grind 100's full time. But i love this game so if there was no other option like i mentioned i would play maybe like 5-10 hours a week. great questions btw!!
