As an a professional online poker player of 12 years and counting and as someone that has worked with some of the biggest card rooms in online poker then I feel that I am in the best position to coach players in what is really required to succeed making money in NLHE full ring cash games. This is an environment that many players struggle who often have good records in live games. There are certain pre-requisites that need to be in place to succeed in online poker……an environment that I may add is tougher than live poker with smaller margins.
However a good player with a good system of play and a professional coaching set up alongside them can do very well simply for one very good and powerful reason……this is because the online arena awards the player with the one thing that a professional needs the most and that is vastly increased liquidity. So volume is king in online poker and this brings me onto the key areas that need to be addressed to play poker either professionally or semi-professionally.
1. Play online cash games and only online cash games
2. Replace single tabling with multiple tabling strategies
3. Use a systematic method so multi-tabling is easier
4. Link up with an experienced online professional who coaches
5. Make sure that you stick with this coach 24/7 and that they offer 24/7 support
6. If possible then be staked as part of the coaching set up to eliminate all financial pressure
This is why late last year I designed my Sniper system as part of Project Poker Pro in conjunction with Poker Pro Europe and Online Poker Pro magazines which I write for. The Sniper is a series of lessons that highlight how I play in and beat no limit Texas hold’em cash games in full ring between the NL25 and NL100 levels. With a good system and enough volume at these levels and with a professional coaching and staking set up behind the student then a player can do very well.
The reason why I am moving into a joint playing/coaching/staking set up is simply to add balance to my working week and the thrill of working with students again. Anybody can sign up for the Sniper course and also if they so choose Project Poker Pro which will allow players to work with me 24/7 and be coached and staked by me up to a total of $2000 on a percentage split basis.
Anybody can come to me for the Sniper course but Project Poker Pro is for dedicated poker players only as I only have so much space in my working week and so I do not want to waste that time working with players that are not truly dedicated. The players that perform the best will then be highlighted in Poker Pro Europe magazine and have their name in lights!!
Anybody that wishes to avail themselves of the Sniper system and/or to come on board with Project Poker Pro is free to e-mail me at [email protected]@yahoo.co.uk in the first instance for more details.
