      Hi Guys

      This is the official thread for feedback on the Theory Battle between Lackoogcb and Sirrybob



      Video

      In this series we will be pitting the best coaches PokerStrategy.com has to offer against each other in a battle of theory and poker philosophy to crown our first Theory Battle champion.

      In the first battle our newest Diamond coach Lackoogcb, a 600-1kNL regular and Pokerstrategy.com Black Member takes on one of the most exploitatively minded coaches we have in Uri "sirrybob" Peleg

      You can see examples of both our participants' work in the video section

      Lackoogcb: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/32614
      Sirrybob: http://www.pokerstrategy.com/video/33095

      Who do you think made the best showing out of our two coaches and deserves the title of PokerStrategy.com Theory Champion, why and who would you like to see take part in the Theory Battle in the future?

      Really great series :) , keep them coming :f_cool: .
      For the first match I would consider it a draw and give each one of them a point. I think they both did very well and I would love to see more from both of them.
      To be more specific the way I would rate their performance:
      Sirrybob:Lackoogcb
      Q1 - 1:1
      Q2 - 1:0 (more explanations on who to use it against and how and more open mindedness I guess)
      Q3 - 0:1 (more productive answer that could be easily put into practice and closer to my opinion to some extent I guess)

      The idea for this video is absolutely awesome. I'm very excited about it.

      My main impression is that much would be gained by intercalating both coaches. That'd be easier and clearer, both for the battle and for the theory bits. So, for example: look at postflop for coach 1 and then coach 2. Then turn for coach 1 and then coach 2. So on. Otherwise it takes way too long to come back and forth.

      Smaller things that this could help also is that the video felt a bit too slow at times, it could be more dynamic; and that it's rather long. So if you are not watching the whole thing at once, it'd be best to have the different spots at a time so you could watch each spot rather than having once coach at a time.

      Keep it up!

      Yeah let the dudes get together at least at the end. Didn't mind the pacing, although if the guys had time to prepare and knew all the questions and would just come with clear cut answers it'd be better saving some delay time

      Actually I prefer them not to be prepared for the questions - That way you could actually see the decision making process.

      Awesome series, haven't listened with so much attention for some time.

      I love this series, can't wait to see it grow into a "thing" :f_biggrin:

      They both had solid arguments. I guess I give a slight edge to Sirrybob, mainly on a biased basis (my views for Q3 are similar to his)
