I Would Like Coaching Because ...

By: bigbosbiz @ 14:43 (EDT) / 309 / Comment ( 0 )

 Hi, my name is Nhan from Viet Nam, a small country in South East Asia. I'm 21 and in my last year in the college. I've known about poker for quite long time but I just started playing it for 6 months. At first, i just played poker for fun on some social network such as Facebook, Zynga,... Since it's just playmoney and the villains are not good, I played very loose aggressively and won a lots. I think I can do it again in real money poker just by sticking to that "strategy" However, I was wrong.



 This april 2013, I made my first deposit at pokerstars. After playing for several days, I was shock since it's totally different from playmoney poker, the players are more smart and carefully with their money. I realized that you need to play poker in the right way if you want to win, not just by playing it aggressively and depend on luck.


 Thus, I bought some book and start learning. I read those books again and again. My motto is "if you want to be a pro, play it like a pro", so I tried to play exactly what is said in the book, like a parrot. Beside, since i acknowledge about PokerSchoolOnline, i login everyday to join the free coaching session even though it's normally start too late here (around 2 a.m to 4 a.m). Those coaching session was very helpful. I even set PSO as my homepage.


 Now, I can multitabling 2x table NL2 at the same time. However, it seems like I can't make a profit. The latest session that I played 20 tables at NL2 for 3 hours, I only made around 3$. Sometimes it was even negative.


 And one day, I read the “boku87” challenge, turn 100$ into 10,000$ in 2 weeks. It sounds really interesting to me so I started finding more information to see how he can pass that challenge. That's also when I found out about the André Coimbra challenge and his blog. After watching strategy guides that André post in his youtube channel, I decided to change from cash game to 50c 90s sng, hoping something will be better. Those guides improve my playing style. But I can’t understand it's whether I’m running bad or my poor play that I hardly get ITM. The best result of mine is 2nd for 7$ (i was very very excited because it's the first time i can run deep like that).


 Until now, from the first 20$ deposit and 20$ bonus (include 20$ that I won from stake share in 100 Billion celebration), I've made it to 53$. The worst time of my bankroll is 12$. To conclude, after 4 months, my net won is -7$. Some of my friends said that: "It's good since at least you still made some profit". But to me it's not enough, that's not what I expected from the beginning.


 So i think my problem now is i really need a coach, that can point out my mistake. Suprisingly, PSO made a promotion to win a coaching session with André Coimbra, exactly what I'm looking for. It's like a light at the end of the tunnel. It's not that I expect to become a pro right after this session, but the feeling of winning a tour is really great, so I hope that feeling can come more to me. It'd really mean a lot to me if I can have a coaching session with you, André.


 Finally, Many thanks to PSO for bringing this chance to all the beginner like me. I hope there will be more promotion like this in the future.
