      Hi, I'm from Moldova, started playing poker almost 2 years ago.

      Cash games I play
      PLO25, sh

      Played a lot PLO10, now I have bankroll for PLO25 (I played only a few thousands hands on this new limit).


      My preflop game is not bad, maybe a little too tight.
      I have concerns about postflop play, sometimes I give too much credit -> folding a lot (negative slope of the red line), sometimes I'm stubborn and do not believe my opponents, so I raise/reraise and even bluff in inappropriate spots -> (slope of the blue line goes to minus infinity).

      So I need to understand better certain general situations.

      Hi,

      I'm from Hungary and been playing poker (more or less) seriously since last year November.
      I'm currently playing Fixed Limit SH on:
      - 0.25/0.50 (~150k hands @ 1.4 bb/100) and
      - 0.5/1 (29k hands @ -1.2 bb/100)
      trying to stay on the latter for about the fifth try now.

      Playing a 27/21 style on Stars and WPT around 3-4 hours a day 3-5 tabling, averaging a monthly 25-30k hands.

      A couple of days ago I discovered that I'm loosing in HU pots (-0.5 bb/100) which is mind-boggling considering thats close to half the pots I play. Even if I consider the blinds, this can't be good.

      Other than that I want to be more competent postflop especially against regs, or just generally improve whatever area I suck in - which would make up a long long list. :f_grin:

      Hey Tarhonya, glad to see FL players interested. I'm looking forward to learning more about this.

      Hi,

      The coaching I would like to apply is:
      Omaha


      A few weeks ago I started my transition from NL SH to PLO (used to play mainly NL50 and NL100). A the very moment I'm not playing a lot as I'm putting more time in studying the game itself and focusing on developing/building solid foundations.

      If you need any additional information please do not hesitate to contact me.


      Thank you for the opportunity and Good Luck to Everyone!

      Hi,

      I've been thinking of trying PLO for some time now and would love a chance of someone experienced to indroduce me to the game and give me some pointers how to crush. :)

      Thank you for considering.

      Hi There,

      This looks like a fantastic opportunity. I would be very interested in some personal coaching.

      I have been playing online poker for about three years (minimal home game experience before that) and I have been focusing on short handed fixed-limit for about a year-and-a-half.

      I practice pretty solid bankroll management and I have worked my way up to .50/$1 stakes but I continually fail in a major way at that level. The last time I took a shot at .50/$1, in June, it shook me up a bit so I took most of the summer off and have been easing myself back into the game at lower stakes to build my confidence again. I have been practicing table selection and playing at good games up to .12/.25 while I "get my groove back".


      Thanks for your consideration.

      Hi,

      I've just switched over from nl20 to plo recently. So I'm a complete fish playing plo2/5 atm. I have a good winrate but over a tiny sample, so not much to read into although I hope to be playing plo10 soon.

      I've spent the last few days watching vids (waiting for gold status so I can watch some more of lechrumski's series) and reading articles. And I feel like I'm slowly getting to grips with basic preflop play.

      Obviously I'm sure I have some bad habits from nlhe so it'd be sweet if I could get some help pointing out where I'm going wrong in that respect and have some guidance with regards to plo theory and concepts as I want to learn the game, not learn easy tricks on how to ship the monies.

      Thanks for this opportunity and for consideration!

      I play 50PLO and am probably playing way too loose, but I'm still winning a lot in the last couple of weeks.. I'd like a coaching to plug some preflop leaks, and maybe some postflop leaks as well.

      I play plo 25 and I want ("need" is a better word xD ) a coaching. I am from the spanish community but I can speak fluid english and understand almost everything. My game has a solid pflop base (I suppose) but have a lot of problems postflop. My main game is nlhe100-200 but I can´t win on plo25 even :f_biggrin:

      I have just started this PLO endeavor and would love the opportunity to receive further insight from a coaching session rather than just my take on videos and reading material. I have many questions which I am just itching to have answered.

      Merry Xmas and thank you for this offer

      I currently play PLO at .05/.10, and I have read all Poker Strategy Articles on PLO ( not watched the video yet ). However, I'm still unable to beat the game. So, I'd like a coaching to help improve my game and move to higher stakes.

      Thanks for your consideration.

      Hi,
      I started to play poker when I'm turned 18, but then that was just fun, I didn't care much about the game.
      When Madorjan, Toma and Styx made a fix limit beginner course in the hungarian community, I started to play this kind of poker, on the micros 5/T, T/TT cents (aprx one and a half year ago)
      In the last one year I played mostly FLHE SH, and HUHU, FL HU SNG's, and some other variant's (like razz, stud, 5 cd).
      I had big plans for this year (reach supernova), but then my university dutys didn't made that possible.
      Now I'm playing 0,5/1 - 1/2 dollar FL SH and creating games so playing ultra shorthanded spots.

      I'm attending to the Fix limit coaching (obviously), it looks a very good opportunity to make my game better, not only the strategic approaches, but the other skills (game selecting, tilt control, time management, and my english) too.

      Wow... Can't believe i'm only now seeing this thread

      If it's not too late, i'd like to ask for a christmas gift as well :)

      I'm currently playing between plo25 (which i'm easily beating), and plo50, where i'm currently loosing, so i'm in a limbo of sorts :( .

      Been playing plo for a few months now, going up and down; i've crushed plo25, started to play plo50; got my behind kicked, went back to plo25, crushed with 16bb/100 over 50k hands, went to plo50 and was doing ok; but i had to make a massive cashout, so i'm back at plo25.

      Any help would be greatly appreciated, since i really want to start winning at plo50+.

      Thanks and marry christmas
