      I attend the gold coaching from time to time.
      You describe your play/decisions very good, I'd say. And I like the "wtf"-scenes when your opponents turn over their cards ;)

      But I miss the good old double coaching format with firsttsunami. Sometimes you disagreed on a play and discussed about it. That's highly educational for the listeners - at least for my part.
      You're trying to explain different possible lines with their advantages and disadvantages - but it's still not the same.

      So maybe you can try to convince Onkel Hotte (or whoever is responsible for that) to send a second coach from time to time. That would be awesome.

      Hi,

      ty for your feedback. :) I liked those coachings too but this is not really in my Hands- but i can tell already that the Coaching will be changed in a generell way in the near future and 2-Coaches-Coachings will definetly be part of the coming Coaching-formats.

      That sounds promising.

      One other thing: You could try to imitate that lovely british accent of Byron Jacobs :D

      powerpoint presentation: considering that a) we don't see the actually presentation, just the same file, and b) that not everybody is following the whole time because of disctactions at home - avoid to say "next slide / nächste folie", instead only mention the number of the slide.

      :-)

      rest was good as always.

      Very nice coaching today.

      Unfortunatly the coach didnt ran very well so we had some discussions about a few hands. But in fact we always have them ^^

      Keep on with it. Maybe a PPC would also be nice.

      Hi there!
      I saw you on some 0.25/50 FL FR tables before and wonder what you're doing there? I'm not familiar with what limits are most profitalbe for someone with your skill or so, but isn't this way too low for you? Hope I'm not out of the line for asking this. GL anyway m8!

      PS The post got moved here, still wondering though. Look forward to your coachings.

      Tonight i played a interesting Hand against a Tag-Villain.

      I think i should have reraised the flop, to bet the turn for a freeSD, because i could be ahead against the raise and to kick the 3rd guy.
      After i just called, i decided, for the same reasons, to raise the turn for a free SD.
      On this river then, I decided to turn my hand into a bluff against 9x, because on this card even the nutFlushdraws and A high freeSDraises improve, so that he will have a hard time calling 9x.
      unfortunatly it looks like he had A9, A4 oder A2.

      This was a Hand i played tonight. Pretty Strange one- On the Turn i´m ahead 100%: His Range should be down to AK, AQ, KK, QQ.
      On the River my Equity should be pretty much Zero %, so I like the c/f :)
