Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Hey guys,

Just thought it was time I wrote something about the person who brought my poker game to another level.

I wrote the following email to Grayson on August 13th 2017:

"Hello,

I saw your thread on 2+2 and If you still take on students, i would be interested to have a couple of hours of coaching to start with...

I am from Belgium and I am a recreational mtt player who has been playing for more than 10 years on and off.

Although I managed to cash a little (biggest: 15k), 2011 was my most 'cashable' year, i do believe I am still a fish. I clearly master some concepts and i manage to often get deep in mtt's, I am a bit of a gambler and I attribute my moderate 'success' (i am still a losing player though) to good runs.

I mainly enjoy MTTs but I have played many SNGs as well.

I never really been involved in forums or poker communities but I am close to some professionals /very good players who have given me advise in the past. I have also read the classics - super system, harrington, Gus hanssen etc.

My goal is not to become a professional and is not to have bankroll lessons. I don't use software and i refuse to do so as it takes away my pleasure for the game.

I am looking for someone to analyse my hands and my play in later stages of tournaments and reduce my leaks for the game.

My screen name: Phanteidos1

I play exclusively on Pokerstars.

Please let me know if you'd be interested in trying me out

Am flexible with hours also. I mainly play on Sunday but now i have more time lately so been playing more.

Thank you,"


Grayson answered directly and since then I have taken lessons with him and 2018 has been my best online poker year so far.
(Check Phanteidos1 on PocketFives)

Grayson understood me directly and knew exactly how to approach the leaks in my game. He managed to fine tune my game instead of changing it completely.
I had never tried learning poker this way and I must say it is the best choice I made in my poker career.
Firstly, Grayson is for me a poker genius, he will question every move you make but he will also question himself all the time and learn from his students because he loves to learn and exchange and his humility allows him to be open minded to any poker decision.

I cannot compare Grayson to other coaches (cause he is the only coach I ever had) but for me, his methods are simple yet super useful...
Grayson was the missing ingredient for me to get better.

I would recommend this amazing person to anyone willing to discuss and learn poker hands with a veteran poker genius who is also an amazing person

Cheers,

Phanteidos1

Thanks for the kind words, Mike! What an awesome year it's been for you, and congrats on the $10k score in the KO tourney last week!

Will be adding 1 long-term new student this month, as well as 1 short-term student, so keep the inquiries coming by posting here in thread, DMing me, or e-mailing me at gnichols22@gmail.com.

Grayson


Also, I'm also feeling a bit excited about the New Year, so wanted to throw out a little bonus to those who are ready to crush this year as much as I am:

"anyone who purchases a 5 hour lesson pack from me before February 1st, will also get an entire hour lesson free! "

Can't wait to see what 2019 has in store for us!

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

2019 is already off to an awesome start for my students. Our group has already seen a 3rd place in the Sunday Warm-up for ~$16,000 and a 3rd place in the $530 KO Bounty Builder for over $30,000!

Not only are we seeing some hard work being rewarded on the virtual felt, but one of my students made it to Day 2 of the PCA PSPC $25,000 buy-in tournament in the Bahamas!

Excited to see what else the year has in store for us all. E-mail me at gnichols22@gmail.com if you are interested in setting up a free consultation to see if you'd be a good fit for my team. I'll be adding 1 new student before the month ends.

Look forward to hearing from you all,

Grayson

Hey everyone!

Updating you all on some of the new opportunities at Dean Poker. My team and I have gone back to the drawing board to deliver a more enhanced poker coaching experience for my students. We have developed an all-encompassing system to help you elevate your skill level, quicker & easier. Instead of engaging in only HH reviews, we have created a process that provides a personalized curriculum around your poker goals & unique learning style. HH analysis remains a key part of the process, however, we will also incorporate customized content & other advanced tools to expedite your poker growth. There is no other process out there that can teach you not what to think, but how to think, faster.

If you are interested in learning more about Dean Poker & how we can upgrade your poker game, contact us to set up a complementary consultation over Skype. Serious inquiries only please.

Thank you!


Grayson Nichols

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Hey guys,

For anyone who is on the fence about taking coaching from Grayson, I'd like to leave a review. I recently decided to start playing poker full time after finishing post secondary and knew I was going to need some form of coaching to guide me along this path.

Previously, I had played poker casually; switching between cash and MTTs. I played micro tourneys, but couldn't crack the higher buy in tourneys. I felt scared playing against aggressive regs and really needed good cards to have deep runs.

I'm about to have my 10th session with Grayson, and I'm thrilled having him as a coach. Within the first five minutes of my first hand history I already learned of one mistake I was making that occurred frequently. As we went through more hand histories I continued plugging leaks and adding tools to my repertoire. Furthermore, I learned how to think about situations, stack sizes, and opponent's perceptions. Nowadays, I'm playing the game differently before I even make an action. I've moved up stakes after a few 4 digit scores and plan to continue doing so as I'm knocking on the door of some larger scores.

Last of all, after my coaching sessions I'm more confident at the tables and am expecting deep runs every time I enter into a tournament. I still have a lot of work and studying to put into poker, but I'm excited to see where it takes me as I work alongside Grayson.

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Hi Everyone,

I started taking poker lessons from Grayson in January. I am a recreational poker player thats been playing for 5+ years so I knew the basics and have one over $25k before coming to Grayson but I kept finding myself having to top up my account as I would kill my Bankroll. I took the 25 session package as it was best money for value. I am on my 12th session now (one per week) and I am approaching 10k in winnings! And my investment has paid off already.

Some things to understand:

I took him as a coach hoping to understand the math behind poker and more GTO things and all of it to me was supposed to be formulas and numbers and deep thinking stuff. Grayson is not that type of coach. If that's what you are after he can give that to you because he knows it but his approach is not to bog you down with information that you will use only when you study away from the table. He shows you your leaks breaks down your decision-making processes and makes you question everything that is going on at the table before you start committing chips to the hand and after and helps you understand how to be in the best position possible to make money.

It works!

PS: you will hear it from him if you keep making the same mistakes especially if you can't explain what you were thinking in one situation or another

But that is exactly what you need from a coach who is interested in you succeeding.

Trust and listen you will see how much better you get!

Good luck to all.

Mac, I'm very impressed with how far you've come in such a short time, keep up the good work and we'll get you to the HSMTTs one day!

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Dear community,

My name is Jacobo Martin and play under alias "Mr. Dupino" in PS, I am 28 years old poker player.

Since I decided to make it as pro in November last year, I consider to get a coach straight away to develop and improve my game. Doing some investigation I came up with Grayson on this forum and decided to give it a try.

After 4 months now working with him I can feel gratify to confirm that my game has evolved greatly.

If you are the kind of person that is willing to learn, get questioned, develop nice fundamentals to excel on the poker tables Grayson is the person you are looking for. You will develop a strong table awareness, solid fundamentals and will get asked the right questions so you can improve on a faster way.

Grayson is also familiariez with population tendencies on the online scene at this moment and will help you develop a solid explotative game.

Jacobo,

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Hello Everyone:
My name is Glyn Griffis and I am a recreational player. I have been taking lessons from Grayson for 2.5 years. Over this time, we have advanced from fundamentals to concentrating on the leaks in my game. I have a lucrative and fun profession that limits my playing time and requires Grayson and I to often go over prior turf due to my sporadic play. Our long relationship has also allowed Grayson to understand my poker attributes and educate me on how best to exploit them.

I want to thank Grayson for his patience, mentorship and continued confidence in my abilities. I had an opportunity to play four events at HardRock Tampa last month which led to my best result so far. I placed 8th in the $360 buyin Deepstack Challenge with 889 entries, and I played in the Poker Classic Series placing 21st in the $360 buyin with 1,128 entries and TID with no chop the $570 buyin with 287 entries for winnings of over $42,000 for the month.

Grayson thanks again for investing your time and knowledge. It is greatly appreciated.
