Hello everyone!

I have a academic approach to poker and I am quite serious about educating myself in it. I tried to for a local studygroup unsuccesfully.

I would love to hear some experiences people have had regarding studygroups. Especially from the people who have organized (or tried..) them.

What kind of an approach did you intend the group to take? talk about specific hands? Generic poker discussion? academic analysis and discussion?

What channels did you use to find out participants? how did they work out?

What tools were used to communicate? Meeting in person? internet cam chat? (what program? internet text chat? forums? how did they work out?

How did you ensure that the group stays together? experiences on that?

what was the size of your group? how did it work out?

Any other pointers or issues that come to mind?
