The ROI on this coaching was apparent very early on. When deep in big spots I felt more comfortable having a solid foundation to base my decisions on. Prior to coaching with Grayson, in certain close spots I felt as though I was using a best-guess approach rather than saving the spot and confirming with someone that is better than me if it was in fact the right decision.

In addition to the fact that I could go over spots with Grayson, he also helped fix a major leak in my game which was bet sizing. He taught me to stop over complicating spots, slow down and think about what you are trying to accomplish with each bet. I had previously been auto-cbetting a 33% sizing with every hand that I wanted to bet the flop with. I now have a solid foundation and the understanding of why I want to bet bigger on certain board textures with certain holdings etc.

Grayson has an approach to the game that teaches you to stop playing like a robot that does what every other player in the game is doing today and start trying to play contrarian in spots that allow you to exploit the player pool.

I will be continuing my coaching with Grayson in the near future and cannot recommend him enough. I've purchased training courses with upswing, max-value and bbz and none have come close to improving my game as much as these few months with Grayson have.

Appreciate the kind words, Jake! Looking forward to next session together. I will be adding one new student before December rolls around, so keep the e-mails coming. If you're interested in setting up a complimentary consultation or have any questions at all, you can reach out to me at "gnichols22@gmail.com", please include information about yourself as a player so I can get a better feel how we might work together!

Look forward to hearing from you all,

Grayson

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Hey all,

I have two exciting pieces of news to share with you! First, I have finished creating my 10-week group lesson course. I will be limiting the first group to 5 players starting in January. E-mail me at gnichols22@gmail.com if you'd like to get some information regarding the course or to be placed on the waitlist.

Secondly, I will be giving a lesson to my student, jcrabb, over his Twitch for all to view this Saturday at 5pm EST. Follow both Joe (https://www.twitch.tv/jcrabb) and I on Twitch to get notifications on any of the free content I'll be providing.

I'll also be doing the first Twitch stream of me playing the Ignition 150k on Sunday at 4pm EST which you can check out here- https://www.twitch.tv/the_dean221/schedule

The plan is to make this stream and lesson both weekly events, so check back on my Twitch for updates.

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Appreciate all the interest and e-mails as of late, keep em coming! The last two twitch sessions had great turnouts so I'm going to continue doing them each week.

Come check me out every Sunday at 4:30 EST playing the Ignition $162 major + my weekly PokerStars Home game on my twitch page-

https://www.twitch.tv/the_dean221

If you are considering personal coaching with me or any other coach, I recommend checking out my stream, get a feel for what my process looks like (and feel free to say hey in the chat!). For those whom private coaching is out of their bankroll/budget, you should check it out for the free educational content. I'll also be periodically streaming free lessons with students, so follow my channel and keep an eye out for upcoming content.

Look forward to another successful year on the virtual felt. Be safe and best of luck everyone!

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Student Testimonial:
I've been receiving coaching from Grayson for the past half year, and it has been ****ing awesome. My game strategies and thinking during play is leaps and bounds ahead of what I was doing in all my past play. I used to make 10-15 bad calls a session, now that number is down to 5 or less.
Background about myself, I am a US online player who has picked up poker as a lifelong hobby. I view myself as someone who hopefully can master the game, but I had no direction or guidance on how to do this. Before I met Grayson, I had purchased Raise Your Edge, Upswing, and Runitonce training which all improved my play, but I felt stuck on a plateau on how to improve and implement what I've learned. All the complex strategies are great to learn, but application is another beast. Grayson sat me down and dove deep into hand analysis to structure my play. I literally can hear him in the back of my head now when I am questioning what I should do, it's great. For anyone out there who enjoys the game and is curious what reaching out to a coach will do, I 1000% recommend emailing Grayson. His coaching is individual and he will work with your style to make you confident in every approach at the table. I owe a ton to Grayson, my live and online play are at another level. My goals of becoming a top player and to be able to register the big tournaments are still in tact and having Grayson as a coach only made that more apparent. Big thanks Gray, appreciate all the work and support you've given me.

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Just wanted to give a quick testimonial, Grayson is an awesome coach. I had been trying to figure out what I needed to do to take the next step in my live MTT game, and this was definitely it. I had signed up for RIO, Upswing, etc. before but had never really gotten as much out of it as it was tough for me to apply some of these principles in person.

After working with Grayson, there are so many concepts we discussed that I really feel I can use while playing MTT's. I read an earlier testimonial before I emailed Grayson about how he could hear his voice while playing - this is 100% true. There are many spots I've found myself in that I can her him saying something we had discussed. I feel way more confident in my game after working with him and would absolutely recommend him as a coach.

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Been putting off writing this review, as I don't really know where to begin, but put simply, Grayson has elevated my poker game to another level. I contacted Grayson after the amazing reviews on this site, and went all out on the 25 lesson package. I'm half way through now, and it's been absolutely amazing to have a poker pro go through my hands, and discuss what went wrong, and what could be improved upon the next time. For me, that kind of concentrated 1-2-1 tuition is how you really improve, and has been so much better than watching hours of youtube videos. Also, since I find myself in the same kind of situation at different games, I've gotten to the point where I actually hear Gray's voice in my head telling me what to do!

I mainly used this as a way to win at my home games, and a few months in I'm at a point now that when a new player joins one of our games, I'm the one who's referred to as the shark

On a personal level as well, Gray's an absolute dude, and whatever level you are, I wholeheartedly recommend him to elevate your game to the next level. Looking forward to the next lot of sessions mate!

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

Decided to take my game to another level and hire a coach. I discovered Coach Grayson through 2+2 and decided to give it a try. I've had 10 sessions with him so far, and I think the 1st session takeaways paid for the 10 hours.

He has a very good approach to teaching. Although he understands GTO, he has more of an exploitative approach which is refreshing. He understands population tendencies and understands where and when to use more exploitative lines.

He helped me find some of my leaks and gave me pointers/reminders to tell myself in spots I struggled with, that I still use to this day. Also helped boost my confidence while I was in a downswing.

I would highly recommend him and am looking forward to our next sessions.

Re: The_Dean221 MTT Coaching

I have been learning poker on my own for the past 2 years and was in information overload about how to best improve my game. I decided to try a coach and found Grayson on 2+2. I am almost through my first 10 sessions and will definitely be getting more.

Although I understand the importance of stats and odds and GTO, my brain just doesn't work that way and I have a more psychological and pattern based approach. Grayson understands and works with this and it has been so helpful. He is a great teacher and can break things down in an easy to understand way that I can apply to other similar situations. He is also very encouraging, which is great for a new player who is unsure if I made the right play.

He has helped me think about my game in a new way and I really look forward to continuing to work with him!
