Re: WARNING!!! Turning pro is HARD ****ING WORK!! And you will see this ITT...

Coaching For Profits @ BPC
Day 29

So.... 4 hours into my 24 hour rest (from poker/internet) period I notice Gordon has sent me Skype message. This has to be serious...

Sorry Chris but your coach has quit!!!!

Wtf!!!? Cannot believe it to be honest. I am very angry about it and boiling up just thinking about it so I am gonna reserve my feelings for a while in case I say something regrettable. I also have some other thoughts I might share later but I don't wanna sound like sour grapes just yet so will give it another 24 hours for me to calm down!

Anyway, lots of thoughts ran through my mind and could not sleep too well after seeing this news. Will cut the long story short - I asked Gordon if there is a chance of me switching to HU and maybe getting coached by one of his successful recent students (Ilidak, Rovar or JurassicDaniel).

I am willing to do (almost) anything to get to where I need to be as quickly as possible. And I know the HU side is not so maxed out as the 6max side.

Luckily Gordon has agreed to this so I am currently organising with him what is needed to change over (assign me coach etc).

Long term followers will know that I did play HUsng's a few years ago (it is in 2+2 and BPC blogs) and that is actually how I found BPC in the first place (bought course). I really loved them but in those days I only played at 0430hrs and as I moved up I could not find any action at the tables. That was actually how I ended up at 6max just because there were more tables. Now, however, I do not play those times anymore so this will not be an issue!

I will need to get back into HU though so I think the plan will be to play NL4 for a couple of weeks and then hit the NL50 tables. I will inject some more money into my bank roll so I can cover those tables. Anyway, this will get sorted once my new coach is assigned.

So, overall this is a very positive thing that has happened. I don't want to bad-mouth Fooz (yet) but I will now be coached by someone in exactly the BPC way which was what I always desired.

I am playing 6max until I get further instruction.


Last night had cool session. Was not sure about my mental state with knowledge I will be leaving 6max (only for 9 months while I make millions ). Started tables up and hit the brick wall...

Anyway, stayed really focussed as wanted to get hours in and not hit stop loss if possible and managed to turn it round. Was very happy with my play and stuck to mainly lines from No BS 6max book (like I was before when crushing )
