Upswing mixed games course

I post this here because I don't know where this goes.

Is anyone interested in splitting costs for the mixed games course from Upswing Poker before the sale ends in 4 days? Contact me if you are, thanks.

Re: Upswing mixed games course

Have not and considering at price; tough to promote for US players. For US players, eight game is essentially non existent and thus most would not care about Razz and Stud. I know this is blasphemy being in that we are in the stud forum though.

But would drop the money in an insta second if it provided great material and thoughts on games like Badeucey and Badacey.

Re: Upswing mixed games course

I've gone through the Razz and Stud-Hi sections so far. I'm a beginner to both games and have found the course very helpful. Jake has a rather understated teaching style, which may or may not be your thing, depending on personal preference. He's clearly very knowledgeable/trustworthy, though.

One annoying thing is that there is a dog barking in the background in several of the videos.

This is the game I would be most interested in, can you briefly talk about what and how much material there is? Like how many videos etc?

You are an advanced player so the fact that you thought it was great says something. I assume it covers a lot of marginal and tougher situations?

Re: Upswing mixed games course

The 2-7 and Omaha hi/low portions were both excellent imo and the best 2 of the 5 games taught. I didn't learn much from the stud courses, but didn't really expect to; however, I thought they were thorough enough to be worth the price. Frankly, I was surprised to learn anything from 2-7 considering I've seen all of Death Donkey's videos previously on DC and SaveMySkin's videos (?on Stox or CR).

Re: Upswing mixed games course

The O8 course has roughly 25 vids that are each about 20-30 min in length. 8 of the videos are from high stakes cash games/a few WCOOP events which I personally found most useful (I generally prefer these types of videos in courses anyway). The other 15-20 videos cover mostly very in depth/advanced analysis of preflop frequencies, blind defense, preflop examples of real hands, multiway flops, when facing a checkraise on turn, when to check back flops, etc. I personally felt like I greatly improved after watching these videos, even as an already very well versed o8 player. Jake is clearly a very intelligent guy and I thought he was a good teacher as well.

As for the stud8 section, I did not feel like I improved as much from watching these videos but at the same time I believe stud8 is also a much simpler game than O8.

I've seen most of the RIO mixed game vids and some of the DC vids as well, and would overall recommend that people looking to improve in the OESTR games would be best off watching these vids.

^^^ by best off watching these vids, I am referring to JLlama vids; not to the discredit of the RIO/DC vids as they are great as well, I just think the JLama vids cover most of the concepts shown in the others but in general, the more the merrier
