Well after that god awful month of August, I decided, enough was enough.
I need some coaching!
Now, unfortunately, I don't easily absorb information by reading, reading and reading. I need someone to 'explain it and show me' sort of approach. So, I know Chuck was getting some A1 coaching from one of the Stox pro's, so I thought I'll give a shot.
I looked at the coaching thread on 2+2 and have gone for a new coach, who has come highly recommended by mods and customers, and more importantly, is quite cheap. So I'm gonna do him a video of me 4-tabling 6max 100nl and we'll see how it goes.
Well the new update for Stars brought down all the pokertrackers, so I didn't fancy playing a shit load of 6max without a HUD, so I thought I'd give the multi tabling video a shot again. I'd previously been having trouble compressing it, but my new coach gave me a few tips, and although the rendering of the video takes an eternity (even though I have a fairly new, decent spec laptop) it seems to work ok.
So then I made a 15-20 minute video of me 20 tabling 100nl full ring. It's not really to show you how to play that many tables, it's more to show some of the guys on CC who just play 2-3 tables at a time. Just to see how manic it looks/gets. Funnily enough, I'm really quite used to it now, so it's definately within most peoples capabilities I think. Anyways, I don't think my play was great even if I did run ok. I think most of my winnings for that day though came about 5-10mins before I started the video though, Doh!
So tomorrow I'll be doing my 1hr video for my coaching session. I may also post it on CC, but I'm a bit shy so we'll see. GL all.
I started playing poker in summer of 2006. I made several unsuccessful deposits on Ladbrokes, PartyPoker, Pokerstars and just about every other poker site going. Then I discovered Cardschat and 2+2 poker forums and started to actually learn poker theory.
In Spring 2007, I made a $200 deposit on Pokerstars with my new found knowledge, I thought I had a chance at this game. I played the $10 sng's and quickly increased my balance upto $1500.
After realising my future belonged with cash games, which took quite some time to make the transition, I began playing them seriously at the start of 2008.
Hence this blog, 'Champagne Supernova'. 2008 was always going to be a Supernova year, and it was a great year. Lets hope 2009, will be an amazing one!
