Looking to form a study group or circle of friends for people whoa re serious about bringing their games to the next step and using poker as a serious source of income. I am looking for players that are winner or break even players at worst.

As a caveat, I am not an expert, just a bit better than break even myself currently, but I feel my game is really coming around from all the studying I've done. I'm looking for other people either above this or on a similar level to form a group in NYC.

Let me know if you are interested by PM, I already have a few people interested. Please tell me about your game, what your goals are, what site you play at, your opr ranking and anything else about you that might apply. Thanks,

Looking forward to taking the next step together.

P.S. No money will be involved for this.

Ive been playing for about 7 years. I have a full time job but I'd describe myself as a weekend warrior. I play a private club 1-2 game in the city and make regular trips to the borgata to play 2-5.
PM me we can chat.

As of now, there are constantly new "I want to start a study group!" type threads popping up in Coaching Advice. I feel a more effective way of organizing it so that people are able to find those who might be interested in this sort of thing is to keep it to a single thread. Doing this, like keeping the "I want to be coached!" threads to a single thread, also lessens clutter and makes it so that people are more easily able to find the topics they are interested in.

So from now on, all new study group threads are getting merged here.

Personally, if you want to start a study group, the first thing I would be doing (if you haven't already) is just going to the strategy forums here and start by posting some hands. The HUNL forum is by far the best "study group" I've had. Incidentally, those forums are also where your request for a smaller subgroup of people to discuss things is more likely to find takers. I suspect that posting in an existing low-content/junk thread in those forums that you're interested in forming a group will prove to be more successful regardless.

Still, study group discussion is certainly welcome in this forum as well. Feel free to post what you're interested in. Leave a country/city etc if you're interested in studying live in the Toronto area or a specific game if you're looking for a partner to brush up on Stud8 with. I recommend searching this thread to find people who have posted with similar interests.

Hi all,

I begin this thread because i would like to start a study group for the limits mentioned. Skype/Team viewer will be used for our meetings, and the methodology will cover

*Hand histories discussion. Each member will bring 5 to 10 hh to discuss. No coolers allowed

*Holdem manager database review. On each meeting one member will be picked up and the others will make a database review for different spots, like playing from the blinds, 3 bet pots, etc, this also includes a stat review.

*Theory discussion. A topic will be chosen for every meeting, in order to be discussed between the team members

*Sweating sess. sub groups of two to make a sweat between each other.

I have Tendo from the forum interested already. Anyone interested plz PM or him.

Just add to your Yahoo or MSN buddy lists.

@ privatechoach I am interested in your coaching, do not have PM yet, but hopefully I am first one to respond. Do you have skype so we can get in touch? Do you use different mesenger service?
12-05-2009 , 01:58 PM

Hey, privatecoach I would like to participate in getting coached by you, if you want. I'm a 10nl player, but had played at 25nl for about 50k hands and got up to about $840.00 then tilted and now I am back down again to 10nl games. I think I do have weakness on Hand Reading, and value betting and knowing what lines to take like bet check, and what to do when I get called on cbet's where I do not have TP, like K58 flops, or A49 flops. I think I have played about 100k hands, although I do not have database for about 50k hands or half from previous sites anymore because of system failure. I've been coached by several coaches, but can not afford paying for sessions bc of my Bankroll, as it also contributed to me losing money. My skype is njshak3zula, but feel free to email me at
