Been a very long time since I visited these TwoPlusTwo streets, so long in fact my screen name makes me cringe, and wow I took a look at some of my old posts and I have to apologize for the garbage poker advice I gave few years ago but hey we all sucked back then.

I'm posting today because I feel compelled to share with the poker community a rather unpleasant interaction I had today with Alvin Lau, who runs the AlvinTeachesPoker Youtube channel and has a course by the name of OverNight Monster, both of which I subscribe to. A little background; there are red flags on Alvin's YT channel about him as a person as he has a few videos where he goes out of his way to bash people including several people who have never said anything about Alvin publicly, he even made a post pretty much laughing off the criticism of one of those videos and doubling down on what he said. Of course I ignore this stuff because I thought his YT content was good and he wasn't saying anything about me so I purchased his course back in October. I had high hopes for the course and was pretty excited about diving into it but honestly it's been pretty meh, and 3+ months later I'm only 70% of the way through it and haven't watched a lesson in over a month because I just haven't been compelled to and have preferred to study other material.

Now on to the incident that drove me to post on TwoPlusTwo for the first time in 5 years. In his closed study group (which is pretty dead) I asked a question regarding HUDs on ACR's Blitz Poker. He responded "don't use a HUD," I asked him "out of curiosity, what do you think are the benefits of not using a HUD." Pretty innocent question, here is a guy I think highly enough of his opinion on poker that I shelled out money for his course and the response I get is "is that a serious question?" That ticked me off pretty bad, and I respond "No, I just love to ask questions I don't want an answer for." His response is "Deuces."

We go back and forth for a few more posts and I tell him how unprofessional he is and after he's responded about 6 times without ever answering why he has a "disdain for HUDs" I let him know I was done with the topic because he clearly didn't have any good reasons since he never provided an answer and that he was totally unhelpful. He was being such a douche for no reason,that another member of the group asked him "why are you trolling this guy." I saw a response from him but I was watching Snowfall (phenomenal show if anybody is looking for something to binge) and when I go to check his response at about 11pm I notice I don't see any of the alerts. I just assumed he deleted the post because he realized how bad he looked but to my surprise not only did he delete the post but he also kicked me out of the group that comes with the membership I paid for all because I dared to not let him be a dick.

Now being out of the group is no big deal, there's like 5 posts a week in there, so I don't really care about that. It's the audacity he showed to be an asshat to a person that has spent money on his product then going on a power trip because that person wouldn't back down from him. I'm posting this hopefully to deter anybody who may have considered buying his course from buying it. The course itself isn't that great and the person that profits off your membership is a **** person.

The guy hasn't changed in a decade. Just look at some of his YT comments in the videos.

I had some interactions with him when I worked at CardRunners. I'm not not one to speak poorly of people, but this guy should be avoided.

dude is a piece of **** human and piece of **** player, probably wouldn't be able to beat European nl200. He wrote see you on Triton two years ago, his biggest succes is explaining cbet range to live 1/2 players
