Who am I?
Qing Yang aka QY, Elite Coach at Run It Once. I played 10/20 live for most of my career, and about 4 years ago I started coaching on the side. As of this post Iíve worked with more than 100 students, and my RIO videos are among the most well-received on the site.
What are your rates?
$1000 for 6h
$1600 for 10h
Packages come with worksheets, pio sims, spreadsheets, as well as long term support in the form of a study group.
Who is this coaching aimed at?
Anyone who wants to improve their theoretical knowledge. I have worked with players from 1/2 live to 1knl online, and feedback has been excellent across the board. Check out my testimonials here.
What makes you different from other coaches?
To my knowledge, most coaches go over various common situations (BTN open BB call, SB 3b vs BTN call etc), and talk you through these spots individually. Instead of doing that, I focus on the underlying concepts that tie them together. For example, on AK high boards as the IP 3bettor, we cbet hands like Kx and QQ, despite them not needing much protection. Whereas for BTN open vs BB call, we prefer to play these hands as a check. The underlying concept that ties these two spots together is that marginal hands are more inclined to bet when we have a big range advantage, and identifying this will strengthen your understanding of the game as a whole.
Basically, I have managed to distill thousands of hours of solver work into a handful of key concepts, and understanding these concepts will improve your play in any spot--even the ones we don't cover.
What else do you offer?
Over the course of our sessions, you will also learn how to study with solvers more efficiently. There is a massive amount of useless information in every solve--Iíll show you how to filter out the noise, and focus on whatís important. Iíll also show you how to put theory into practice with GTO trainers, and give you a roadmap to keep improving on your own.
Isnít $200/h a little expensive?
Frankly, $200/h is a steal. There are coaches who charge similar rates for hand reviews--imo focusing on concepts is a much more efficient way of learning, because it automatically addresses many of the hands you are not sure about.
On top of that, youíll also be working with a well-established coach with a ton of positive reviews. Bear in mind my content has improved a lot over the years, and I have not increased my rates by that much.
If you want a better idea of what to expect, you can check out my videos on RIO. I have 10 videos from my time as an Essential coach that youíll be able to access for $25/mo. Whether or not you are planning to sign up, I recommend watching these 10 videos as an extremely cost-efficient way of building good fundamentals.
You can also check out my Youtube channel, although the content there is a bit more basic.
Cheers, and donít hesitate to leave a comment or PM if you have any questions! You can also contact me by filling in a form on my website.
Very interested in the 10 hour package I will dm you.
Update - 4 days later we just had our first session. Ending up booking 6 hours total. I'm already 100% sure it was a good investment to help me transition from full time MTT to cash(Or at least mixing cash games into my schedule)
There was no hand history review, we got right into theory. Qing explained why we need a solid understanding of the theory to be able to exploit.
Were gonna do a session a week as I begin to apply some of these new to me concepts. I will update in the future.
