      General information about my coaching

      • Name of coaching: SNG Silver
      • Poker Room: PartyPoker
      • Status: Silver
      • Time: Thursday, 17:00-18:30 GMT


      To provide you with a diversified coaching experience I am offering a wide range of different coaching formats as described below.

      1) Live coachings: They contain the basic idea of coaching - you observe my play by joinme. Of course I will also share my thoughts with you and discuss the plays made or other optional plays, theory etc

      2) Private coaching with public viewing: This time it is not me who is playing, but one of our PokerStrategist with me giving him give session advice. Together with my advice and your questions not only the player but everyone in the coaching will receive an extra input for the next session!

      3) Review coaching: Here I'd like to discuss a hand history played by one of you and analyse your plays. Because we have some more time we can discuss those hand histories deeper than in live SnGs.
      If you are interested in beeing reviewed, feel free to send me a hand history to the-nose@web.de. I'll try to use it when the next review is scheduled.

      Regards

      TheNose

      A question for anyone who feels like answering:

      In the strategy guides for SnG's the term "no set no bet" was used to describe playing action when set mining ie no set then you fold. During this session however, I remember a pocket pair being played with overcards on the flop (sorry I cant give a specific hand but this is as much detail as my memory will give me).

      Given this, is it a more profitable play to fire a semi-bluff at a flop pot? Or does this kind of play rely on reads?

      hmm... i am sorry, that i cant remember the spot anymore, but on some boards you even have value when you are just holding a small pocket pair...

      let's say it was a JJ4 board and you have 22 for example then it makes sense to take a stab at the pot and bet on the flop (up to a 3way pot) to take it down, cause its quite likely that your opponents will fold ...
      with read you can play them as an overpair sometimes too ...

      hope i could help you ;)

      The coaching yesterday was interesting as usual (it is impressive the capacity of the coach to keep calm always without any minimum sign of tilt :D I love that :) wish I can be like that) even if I prefer in all honesty the FR (maybe for a sense of selfishness as I play exclusively that).

      Unfortunaltely, I had to leave the coaching early due personal other stuff and nothing to do with any issue related to the coaching.
      Thank you Coach and see you at the next occasion :heart:

      really +++EV coaching. This session review mode is really interesting since allows us to discuss a lot about each hand. I hope you can do this pretty often! :) Better than live, for sure.

      Nice one!

      Many hand discussions, good questions...
      Great format. I believe I can learn more here than in a regular coaching. Better way to learn how to think the game than a standard "live action" format.
