is a poker training site that gives you a front
row seat as you watch and learn while an online
Pro plays. Sometimes the pros make profitable
decisions and sometimes they don’t, but
you get to hear the rationale behind their moves
which will give you the tools to become a better
player. Each video is between 20 minutes and an
hour and the subjects run across all types of
poker, from cash games to Multi-Table Tourney’s
to Single Table Sit-N-Goes.
The site includes
an impressive stable of pros from which to learn.
Sure the oldest one is about 22 years old and
looking at their bio pics on the site, you may
think to yourself, What can these young kids teach
ME about poker? Don’t let their ages fool
you, these guys have amassed a ton of poker knowledge
in their careers. Rumor has it that one of them
ran a $35 deposit up to over $50K and now has
a $2million bankroll. The pros include:
“Green Plastic” Caby - One of
the internet’s most successful cash game
“Muddywater” Wiggins – Short-handed
and headsup specialist.
“ActionJeff” Garza – Multi-table
and Sit-N-Go specialist.
“Stinger885” Hastings –
Multi-table Tourneys and Sit-N-Goes.
have some guest coaches who stop by once in a
while (well-known player jsup is the main contributor).
The site uses
screen capture software that shows you the table(s)
just as they see them,
site is an excellent instructional tool if you
would like to work your way up from the lower
limits or have hitten a wall in your poker learning.
The videos are straightforward and the lessons
are an invaluable look in to the types of things
you need to consider while playing Texas Hold’em.
If you have a question about a video you’ve
watched there is an excellent member forum where
you can talk to the pros.
The site has
a few minor weaknesses which can easily be fixed.
For example, there are virtually no non-hold’em
videos so if you like other games the choices
are pretty sparse. Also, there is no indication
of how long a video is until you start watching
it, so if you’re trying to check a short
one out on your lunch hour you don’t really
know how to pick which one to watch. Finally,
some of the videos have a pro playing more than
one type of table, for instance they might be
playing a single table Sit-N-Go at the same time
as a cash game, this could lead to a little bit
of confusion on the viewer’s part since
the strategies of both games are so different.
are more than compensated for by the excellent
information, I've personally become a better player
just by learning to slow down my decisions and
delve deeper into my opponents motivations for
making certain plays. The site releases at least
3 new video lessons a week and is reasonably priced.
A first level membership is only $6.99/Month and
provides a 25% discount on videos which cost around
$5-$10/video, access to the forums, pro blogs
and instructinal articles. The full membership
is $19.99/Month after a $49.99 membership fee
and includes 1st level privledges and unlimited
access to videos.
a try if you’re looking to take your game
to the next level.
