  • DemonRax


    I'm in. Yes, I'm sick and tired of playing NL25 and taking shots at NL50 with no result. But I have dedication, I have motivation, I've never gave up facing a challange, and I'm sure I will make it to the top eventually with or without help from others.

    But I'm a strong believer in what you've said: nothing is there that can't be done. All excuses and lies about games being too tough, poker sites being rigged, player himself being unluckies, etc - it's all just laziness and dreaming instead of hard work and hours of study.

    Good luck with your idea!
  • awesomeo


    For some time I feel I might have come to a point where my own inteligence and intuition doesn't give me too much of an edge over opposition. I managed to progress to SH NL100 on my own, failed shooting NL200 so far and feel that i'm out of ideas what I should do to get better.

    It is not that I'm losing or anything but I lack this feeling of satisfaction for truly understanding and crushing the games. I lack the feeling of progress and I need new source of inspiration and knowledge for how to aproach my development as a player.

    With that being said I just discovered the video and now I'm really excited about this series.

  • Nejc351


    im in, becouse i think that with my amount of bad luck(and bad knowlage and lazyness :) ) it's impossible to beat high limits in the long run :D
  • jaromma


    I'm in, it's my last hope. I'm tired and I had almost give up :(
  • technology66


    I'm tired of playing poker for nothing without a purpose and without any significant gains
  • wedkarzadi


    I'm all in becouse i want to be better then other regs, not only better then fish.
  • sandercvo


    I want to join, because I want to make big money with poker. I`am going to move up to 50 Nl 6 max. Iam pretty sure I can beat that, but my goal is to beat at least 400NL someday.
  • w34z3l


    Just don't post any junk on the forums because Gordon will find it!
  • taschendamenfalter


    i really like your vids,
    but you should change business - become a prayer and found some religious movement, where you suck out your followers finacially - you'll be a billionaire soon.
    5% for me for the advice please :)
  • IngridN


    Good luck everyone! What a video!!!
  • Kramnand


    I am in also ! I like yours videos very much and I really want to improve my game understanding :)
  • Raskolnikov



    Yes, YOU can. I can (only) help you. Start with the blog, track your progress and never give up.
  • Raskolnikov


    #4: Yessss, thats what i wanna hear man. Walk the extra mile, and ask questions when in doubt.

    There is no such thing as to many questions
  • Raskolnikov


    #5: Find your edge and make sure to find situations where you can use it best (type of game, site to play on etc).

    Also look at the leaks and look where they have the smallest expore.
  • Raskolnikov


    #6, #7: Go for it!

    #8: Yes Pet,its a life long game against our ourselves becoming complacent
  • Raskolnikov


    #9: You got the right name for it, accelerate the success!
  • Raskolnikov


    #10: Haha, with poker players its always hard to know where the "level" is. I hope i'm right in assuming YES this time-

    #11: If it's a "fu all, i'm gonna make it", then its the right attitude. Otherwise, watch out that you don't pitty yourself
  • Raskolnikov


    #12: There we go. Thank you for motivating others who might think the same of themselves
  • Raskolnikov


    #13: That's good that you're feeling sick of it. use the energy to change!

    #14: Wow,1 Mio hands tells me that no matter what you do wrong/right, you man, got work ethic.

    That's gonna bring you far. Now my tip for you is to play a bit more "conscious" or "awake".
  • Raskolnikov


    #15: You define your purpose. Maybe you didn't feel enough pain?
    Put yourself into a situation where you really have to fight. I don't know your personal situation, but in case you don't earn 100% of your income yourself, that's the first thing you should do.

    #16: Go for it

    #17: It's written, now walk the talk! Keep me updated
  • Raskolnikov


    #18: WINNAR !!!

    Already hired 5 full time anti-logic forum cops

    #19: Its more fun if you actually believe in what you're doing.

    On a serious note (because i hear this quite some times), many people who did this sorta thing (Madoff etc) said that they had their happiest time in jail.

    But thx for the compliment!
  • Raskolnikov


    #20 Thx colleague

    #21 Thx, and btw, Carlsen is better than both
  • luckyme44


    I'm in! I currently have been taking online poker more seriously than ever and have shown that I can climb the stakes.. However I do believe that my game needs some fine tuning to achieve an acceptable winrate at say 200nl+.

    Seems like a wonderful series.
  • vandixxx

  • Behar90


    Im in because this I see this like one of the biggest competition to me. Im the guy who never wants to surrender, and the only thing is that is bad is that im tilting to much.

    My english isnt the greatest but I understand the most of it.
  • Behar90


    *challenge ofcourse, not competition haha.
  • Musher1993


    I'm in because i'm sick of skipping between types of poker staying around break even in them all, its time to focus on one style, become better and stop not following up with commitments.
  • jules97


    I'm in. I like Rasks videos and coaching style. Worked from NL2 to NL25 and not seen much improvement the last couple of months. My goal is to be >5bb winrate at >= NL200 within 6 months from now.

    I've always had an uncanny confidence (that usually exceeds my ability haha) but it's taken me a long time to realize that talent, confidence and ability is secondary to hard work, dedication and persistence. I'll be upping that part.
  • Scoob101


    Im in because I want to show that all the others who postet comments are LOOSERS AND I AM A CHAMPION!
  • xmiammiamx


    I'm in because "I want to believe", like Fox Mulder. I'm an apathetic person and I don't like that. It is too depressing.

    I can accomplish things because I'm smart and I believe I am very honest about myself and my flaws. I got a PhD in science one year ago. But believe it or not, I somehow got there by inertia. I can "follow a path" pretty easily. Studying Science ? Yeah why not it's cool, better than something else. Doing that piece of homework ? OK, sure, I don't mind. I have to learn all that book by tomorrow ? Oh well... ok.

    But I feel bored and tired of my lack of initiative. This is not getting me happy in my daily life. I feel that what I do is meaningless because I don't attach a meaning to it. I have worked hard without respect for the value of hard work. I need to chalenge myself. It goes beyond poker.
  • jachis


    I'm in, cause I'm sick of not being able to establish myself at NL100+
  • Gavron23

    Good luck for all
  • murzius


    and i want to say i like to play omaha ;)
  • 50StepsAhead


    Let's do this. I know I can play NL200+ and become a good player.I've always improved fast when I was really dedicated. All that has kept me away from my goal is my lack of perserverance and discipline. I hope you will do a bit on these two qualities. Thanks Gordon

  • MisterSnS


    I will join. My life currently lacks the money I need to lead the lifestyle I always wanted. Therefore I need the right poker skills to crush the lower limits.
  • Alan883

  • stevedtrm


    I'm sorry. There are things you can not do. And we are dependent. This video is just unsubstantiated pep talk. It is flawed, no matter how much the speaker beleives it.

    Beleiving you "can" even when you can't or, even when you might not be able to (sometimes the thing you CANT do is tell in advance with perfect certainty if something works) is just a recipe for being a bug spaltted on the windscreen of life.

    Nothing I have said in the comment above legitimised trying less than your best.
  • GSG777


    I'm in. I want to make a lot of $$$ from poker, because i love this game so much.

    Thanks for video!
  • stevedtrm


    The pep talk at the beginning may be horribly horribly flawed, but some of the statistical principles around the middle of this vid shows the speaker has some intellectual depth.
  • stevedtrm


    By the way- as an alternative to his "dont think like a victim" philosophy, I suggest a "we are all potential victims" strategy.

    Because its true.

    Truth is what matters. Not if you can imagine screaming them before you charge up a hill with a rifle in your hand.

    Truth matters because all of your conclusions subsequently rely on your earlier conclusions.
  • daveri7


    Im in because i wont to become beter
  • Jitroceler


    I´am in. I need money on christmas presents.
  • Hommsen


    I'm in! I just restarted to poker @ NL10 and i'm shotting NL25 right now. My winrate on 10 is awesome but i get crushed on 25 because i have several leaks that didn't matter that much on NL10. A big problem is that im not motivated to spend hours to do theorycrafting cause i'm more the "learning by doing" type of guy. And you can mirror that on my real life. I have the same poblem when it comes to studying/learning. I want to change that and i'm really motivated to become MOTIVTATED. ;)
  • gyurma1985


    Im in! I love poker and it is in an important place in my life, I want to improve my game. Thank you!

  • delahoz76


    Hi, I'm in. Why ?, because I am tired of doing a lot of stuff and not doing what I wanted to do, I started playing poker like a month ago and I been expiriencing the fears that society moves into our minds so I am now dedicated to poker because I like it a lot, because I love poker and I am going to be at the top, I just need your help. Thanks.

    There is no why. 6 months ago learned basic rules of this game, never ever played cards before.
    Now, six months later, I spent more time on poker than on anything else. I will play this game for rest of my life.

    After harving with my poker for 7 years, I think it is high time now to become thereal winner. I dunno if i have the time to do it....had a heart attack a month ago and I am rehabilitating just now, for 8 to 10 weeks. They operated me with three baloons right into my heart.
  • PICIDAE999

  • vyczn15


    I want to grow from fish that can bite into the shark that can rip regs apart, so count me in!
  • Sailer85


    Nice talk about being able to do something, and i agree with you to a point. People with a handicap (say missing limbs, or that are paralysed cannot walk, they CAN'T its not that they dont want to...
    I agree that healthy, intellegent people can achieve what they set out for, however there are really people that cannot do certain things. It would be wise to reflect on that aswell..
  • Bambochaa


    I'm in!
  • JohnyC1337

  • sirilidion


    btw does it have to be in NLHE cash or can we do the challange with other games?
  • B0st0n


    I am in. Just because I want to be a better poker player.
  • kingpowl


    dont get me wrong, its always nice to fight and to stand up again and again.. and a lot of people are too satisfied with their life and dont do as much as they could or should do. also its nice to have specific goals and work for them.

    BUT: i really dislike your image of humanity.

    - it is not wrong to listen to other people.
    even if they cannot help you with your present specific goals its always good to be open minded for new/different views. you dont have to believe everything, but walking trough life with your attitude is just ignorant

    - speaking of ignorance: you are completly ignoring the fact, that there is a lot of variance in all aspects of life, especially poker.
    when you mentioned your 100k breakeven stretch as a big deal you probably dont even know what variance can do.

    - you are also ignoring that there are alot of things u cannot chance.
    we cannot change the setting we were born in, we are ruled by the time, our physical state etc.

    - therefore your black and white view on the world - losers, who blame others for their fault and winners, who just do what they want - is extremly result orientated and ignoring alot of the facts.

    if a random homeless person in brazil could hear how a rich kid from europe talks about losers and winners... its just as if you add insult to injury
  • SPeedFANat1c


    comment because of video beginnning: I want just to see what is this video :)
  • SPeedFANat1c


    about I CANT'T and I DON'T WANT THING:
    I can agree - there is no such thing as I cant' but the one condition must be met at least: - amount of work put to achieve somethin. Maybe I can beat NL5000 but not with such amount of work which I am putting now on poker. So still I can say I CAN'T beat NL5000 with the current amount of work to improve. I study poker 10-20 hrs per month. Or do you want to say stil that I can beat NL5K with the current amount of work? :P this would be very productive, and I would like it :)
  • Raskolnikov


    Oh wow, commenting will be lots of work! But thx, i love doing this kind of extra!!!

    #33: Thx

    34: Be more specific with your goal, that will help

    35: More specific, which limit, at which time, and HOW ?

    36: welcome

    37: YOU define winning, not I

    38: I'm counting on you

    39: I don't wanna go into a historical battle, since i don't know. All i know is that many successful people "supposedly" have dead people in their basement.
    I don't agree with this POV in general, whether or not what you say is right in this case
  • Raskolnikov


    #40: Yesss, make them cry and go home to mom ;)

    41: how much?

    42: WINNARR, you made my day

    43: You are, gl with ur challenge

    44: good goal, thx for joining

    45: I 100% agree with you. Poker has been my best school of life. Sorry parents, but poker has taught me many many things i didn't learn at home

    46: Change your attiude. YOU have to help yourself. I can assist you. But don't look at me like i'm a good samaritan. Not the right attitude. But you good work ethic, thats awesome

    47: Start!

    48: The key is doing this EVERYDAY until you puke and don't wanna fcking play another hand in your life. then you know you have worked hard and deserve all the money that will flow to you

    49: To you as well, Carslen rocks ;)
  • Raskolnikov


    50: more precise !

    51: awesome, again, try to be specific

    52: welcome

    53: Respect, sir!

    54: Language doesn't matter as long as u keep up the attitude

    56: yep FOCUS

    57: Exactly! The sooner u learn, the better

    58: yesssss

    59: I think its the trap of many intellectuals like yourself. In a way the trap of many coach-type of people as well (like myself)
  • Raskolnikov


    60: Change it

    61: do your best, thesky is the limit

    62: gl to u as well

    64: Doing doing doing and less talking, thinking is the key here!

    65: good

    66: thx ;), you will

    67: make a specific goal. then work on it

    68: focus on one game at the time

    69; thx!
  • Raskolnikov


    70: go for it

    71: my promise stands. update every day and you got 100000% of my help

    72: good first step, now make a positive phrase out of it

    73: why not !!!

    74: perfekt

    75: love that one. I think many feel this way, but few have the balls to do something

    76: Try again, but be solid wiht BRM

    77: thats a good goal. You're being dealt a hand in life, do the best out of it

    78: Yes, hope its a good start

    79: We all have different reasons. Go for it
  • Raskolnikov


    80: Yes, you got the chance.

    81: do it

    82: everything? i hope so!

    83: please do so!

    84: lots of poker & life stuff here

    85: The problem is that "you have to try the impossible in order to achieve the doable".

    I thought i would not state the obvious that a 1,60m guy will probably not be the worlds best bodybuilder... so what?

    Life is like poker. You get dealt a hand (your genes, circumstances) and make the best out of it.

    86: You're welcome

    87: Oh well, we can be friends overall ;))). Seriously, no problem with people challenging me, i can see where you're coming from.

    88: Here we agree 100%. And keep in mind, in a 30min vid i can't lay out a philosophy with all pros and cons.
    Being complete and covering each scenario possible never is the intention of a video like this

    89: solid
  • Raskolnikov


    90: Hurrrry

    91: Same here. Learning by doing is a good idea,as long as you have a little good info to go with

    92: great, yw

    93: nooooo tourney no, well if you like it, go for it

    94: Thank you for your great comment

    95: good

    96: first one is good, second one just run better ;)

    97: discipline is a big thing (coming from a German )

    98: Prove it, i know you can

    99: solid logic ;)
  • Raskolnikov


    100: please continue to do

    101: gogog

    102: sounds like a plan

    103: make a detailed plan

    104: thx!

    105: i wish it were for another reason, but a "bad" reason is better than no reason

    106: great

    107: you're new, you got energy, go for it

    108: Lerne Englisch ffs!!!

    109: Nice
  • Raskolnikov


    110: good attitude

    111: welcome

    112: ok?

    113: you can

    114: do it

    115: 7 years, hard attack, man, that will be a sick story with you in rail heaven ;)

    116: make it many times

    117: search for motivation internally if possible. I'm happy to provide the rest

    118: yessssss

    119: good goal
  • Raskolnikov


    120: then start now

    121: when?

    122: so isses

    123: dann mal los

    124: get the right vids/coaches and start

    125: damn what are u waiting for

    126: its a dream, live it

    127: nice analogy ;)

    128: Well, of course! Like the one guy before, this is stating the obvious.

    I don't think it's wise to reflect on it though. Like i said before, you get dealt a hand in life (genes, circumstances, variance) so its not your job to say, OMG this guy got T-high only or "this guy has AA",

    no, ANY hand can win. they win in a different way though

    129: welcome
  • ludovici


    I want to join because i want to develop my game to a higher level.
  • Raskolnikov


    130: Repeat this and you'llbe in rail even very quickly

    131: i can only help with NL cash, but i'm sure every coach here would love to help if you got a question about your specific game

    132: good

    133: Thx for a critical comment.I love those. Gives both of us the chance to sharpen our views or adjust them.

    Ignorance: I shared your view and did a lot of things out of pitty. Then i realized that this is hidden arrogance. Its the worst form of it. Basically you're listening to others, although you don't value their opinion. Its better to tell them straight away or even better, not bother to listen the first time. You're hurting nobody, there are 6 billion people on the planet. Those others don't need you.
    Implying they do is arrogant at best imo.

    Variance: My breakeven stretch was not due to variance.

    And yes, read some earlier comments, there is a lot of variance, but practically it doesn't matter. think poker, if you get sucked out on, what are you gonna do?

    => Play the next hand as best as possible. That's all that is in your power.

    - Black & White: BLaming others has never helped anybody. What does it help? Watch the youtub video with all the "losers" like Michael Jordan, Lionel Messi... why can't this be you, me, and anybody else?

    - Homeless kids: Look, i play with the favela kids football on the beach and i treat them like i treat you or anybody else. I don't treat them with pitty, cuz many types of pitty are a hidden form of arrogance

    I don't take off my expensive watch or good looking clothes when going in those areas. I don't try to be like them, cuz i love how i am. I also let them be who they are and treat them like normal people who make their choices in life.

    Anyways, nothing personal, and i hope to receive more critical comments in the future.
  • Raskolnikov



    If you're not willing to invest 24hours a day, you're not doing the "maximum".

    So yeah, extreme case, but eating has a higher priority and in your case other parts of life.

    That's what i mean by "want". You might "wish" to play high, but you have other priorities as well, which is fine.

    #146: You're at the right place to do so
  • EmanuelC16


    People tell others 'You can't!' because they think that would decrease the chances of the other's success, therefore their inability of succeeding seems normal, or closer to it.

    I like your ideas about poker and life in general. Next year I'm trying my most serious grind. Care to catch up with my blog and then following? ;)

  • allbusiness


    Great pooposition, Gordon, more coaches should be as comitted as you are, thumbs up!

    I would love to get involved and learn from your perspective.

    I've been bouncing up and down from 25nl to 100nl. I have been winning in all those levels, but loosing too. I definetely have mental leaks.

    I fully commit to study, talk, post and whatever else it takes to make me a winning player. And as a proof of my commitement, once I become a winning player at some descent stake, I will start the process over, and teach what I have learned to someone else.

    Maybe you could form some kind of a group, so more of us would have this incredible chance.

    Like always, a very good video, and keep up the good work, as we surely need more guys like you.

    Thanks a lot!

  • Simschi


    I want to join because Poker is more than a game for me it became a part of my life.
    From the first 1 and a half Years only playing Play money till about 3 Years later i allways wanted to get better i dont cared that u can earn money with it, i just wanted to play poker, and raise the limits.
    Well then came the point where i cashed out the first time, and i enjoyed that, at first.
    Well i stopped learning, stopped enyojing Poker.
    Since i cashed out i didnt enyoj Poker anymore in the last 3 Years i Play in Autopilotmode, i get more and more worse, and i sit at the tables more often having no clue why i do something or should i do this or that anyway.
    Pls hlp me getting back the fun of POKER, i dont wanna have fun playing only when i win, i wanna get back loving poker for playing and learning Poker, not for winning Money.

    I've got to say i think it's bullshit.

    Wont stop me from trying, ever beccause mb i'm one of those who can :p
  • dobermann123


    ok nvm just watched the video again and it is kinda ur point.
  • cpa885


    I have played poker now for 2 years and I have tried many different games such HU, 6max, fullring, sng and mtts and nothing really worked out and I gave up.

    BUT now, right now I will change things and I will become one of the best poker players in the world and I will prove everybody that I can do it.

    I will do everything possible to improve and fullfil my goal.

    To show that I am not bullshiting, I have already signed up at the local gym.

    New life, here I come.
  • JimmyRare


    Anyone? Really??? Bullshit!

    Well, first off I am lazy. I don't like to put in hands. I just want the profits of course.

    Second, I'm really scared of losing! So... I better not play.

    Third, I am so stubborn I will argue that my play is always correct. My opponent was just not smart enough!

    You should choose me, but I don't want to be known as the one who proved them right...
  • ZackBigPack


    I started a HU Blog now. It would be awsome if you could find the time to sometimes read it and post something to the hands.

  • Matziano


    hey gordon.hey guys

    the reason why i´ll join is i really want to get a professionell poker player!

    I make it in 2013 and i will do everything to get me there.
    Probably i will take a coach to learn faster and more efficient.

    I truly believe that everyone should have a lifetime goal wich is worth to live/die for.

    I´m very excited and respect everybody who goes his own choosen way.

    merry christmas @ all

  • Raskolnikov


    #150: I can't follow every single blog, but after 60 days i will see the really committed ones and follow

    151: Great

    152: Awesome, there is a strategy. Just go into a place where many poker players are (find out the hotspots), then just be a nice guy, join the dinners, organize them and you will get free poker advice all day long

    153: thats a good attiude

    154: uhhh, why not. Not knowing your circumstances, but you sound motivated so go for it.

    155: who isn't!!!

    156: another one, yes, go for it

    157: i hopez u vil achiv ;)

    158: Then i am willing to work with u

    159: No more tilt. You should bet "Tilt Free Today"
  • Raskolnikov


    160: damn sick, you should curse and finally end this bullshit behaviour!

    161: Thx man, i love what i read. Comments like these keep me going and motivated myself to put in a lot of time

    162: Yes you can!

    163: Prove it to yourself

    164: freedom is very important, i agree. good goal

    165: Yes man, WAKE UP. Others you end up "sleeping" the best years of your life

    166: Do something crazy, extraordinary man. Do something ridiculous. I'm serious. Do something absolutely CRAZY (outside of poker). Then use poker to finance this crazyness....

    167: poker is the school of life

    168: the universe is the limit ;)

    169: gogogo
  • Raskolnikov


    170: It's not. We all have different circumstances. For somebody poor in Rio, getting to your current standard of living is a HUGE win.

    For somebody not sooooo talented, making 5k is a huuuuuge win and should be celebrated like for somebody else making a million.

    When i say define winning, i mean look what in YOUR situation winning means. I can't say winning means to beat xy limit.

    Hope that makes things clear.
  • Raskolnikov


    171: ok ;), all good

    172: Great man, ACTION >>>>>>>> Words. I'm glad you walked your talk

    For 1.5half years I'm trying to give meaning to my life, so far I just can't do it, living from poker for 3years, never moved above NL25. I'm sure I could play NL100, but mentally I'm just too fucked up. Would love to talk with you once.. so I'm in.
  • KambiuM


    I am not going to join because ultimately I am the only one who can make myself successful. I love to be part of something and appreciate the support, but no one is going to do it for me. Poker has turned my life upside down and then back down again, and I will not bury it while it is still live within myself. I am not here to become rich or crush highstakes, but to prove the doubting part in me wrong and embrace what I am capable of achieving and building. Everything else is just an appreciate byproduct. Got a New Years Resolution about Poker? Great, but I am one week ahead, I started yesterday ;)

    Hi Gordon,

    I want to join because I want to prove myself that with 2 hours of play every day I can make per month twice the amount I'm making as a doctor.

  • dotergoir


    I think that it was bad bet at river with 55. 2 pairs opp would bet be himself, if we check. Only KQ wont, and sometimes we will get extra value by beting 55. But thats all. No other hands that we can get value by betting. And by bet we dont let opp to make bleff. U said that we need to bet, cause we can bet more and get more value from 2 pairs. But also we will lost more, if he had straight. Also if we check, mby he will bet smaller with straight, 2/3 for example. Also by checking we will also get more information. We would see how opp plays with all of his hands.
  • rounder1


    I take a part, because I want to improve my skill, move up to good, serious stakes and, in general, I find poker much more interesting, than just hobby and the way to gain money. Poker has its reflections into different parts of life and understanding of its concepts may help in a lot of activities.

    And right now I really need to know what i need to do, to learn to make my game move forward. I know that I can beat my limit and I did it, but last couple of months I play break even and a little in minus and this sucks me. May be it's lack of learning, may be a bit of psychology. So, I need some tips and I'm ready to work hard.
  • bloked


    i want to be better, cause i need it to live, i want to play poker at it's best

    I'm in. You can either crush the game or lose, there is no middle ground longterm.
  • Sattelite1


    I would be interested your coaching and a training plan in order to get rid of this problem in my head finding the fold button. Its somehow paranoia or a knot in my brain knowing better but doing the opposite. Its somehow very true for my play what you are saying and presenting but ´ll see if i can trnasfer it in my head. Hard enough and any help would be very welcome

  • SpiderZorro


    Hi Gordon,
    i want to congraduilate you for your nice and important video
    wish you the best for the year 2013!
    (first comment in 2013)

    I´m 50 years old and therefore an old man for poker-players and just try to crush NL10 (SH), which is really hard for me.
    As an physician (doctor) with much experience i can tell you:

    Lots of people with depressions and other chronical illnesses feel theirselves as victims (of life) and that is definitly a looser strategy!

    You can´t change anything in your live as long as you don´t realize that YOU have to change!

    I try right now to believe in my own poker-skills and give my best to get a better winning-player, although i dont have much time to spend in poker. I like to play poker very much bur its hard quitting to gamble around!

    THANKS for your good ideas, i will get better with this mindset!
  • Robbracing

    Definitely joining, cause life just gave me so many lessons recently, which were unfortunately the unpleasant ones, both in personal life, and also in poker, SO in these 2013 I want to become a better, more interesting, and a self-confident person, and probably the most of all - I want to take poker very seriously, for the first and the last time. I want to become a better poker player, as well as I want some drastic changes, as You just mentioned in the beginning of this video. So, YES, I am definitely IN, and let's see what else do You have prepared for us in this vid.

    I need to stretch my horizons, and I don't know how to play poker, so if you can make ME -- a total beginner -- into a winning player (along with the beginner's course, so you don't have to teach me the hands etc.,) then you really do have something great going here. I'm an old dog ready to learn new tricks.

    Maybe you happened to have some interesting reading material to share on that topic?
  • SpiderZorro


    Gordon (answer also to #234)

    Look about this topic at

    Jens Corrsen is a very interesting german sort of mental-couch, i had 1 day studies with him, he is top!

    Especially the 4 audio-CDs are really interesting, i`m hearing this CDs on longer car trips.

    Gordon would be surprised how many ideas of Corrsen´s concept he already tells us in his videos!

    Also ernsthaft, wer sich für das Thema "Selbst-Entwicklung" interessiert, dem kann ich (als Arzt mit viel Lebenserfahrung) nur die Audio-CDs oder das Buch empfehlen!

    Sorry for beeing off-topic!

  • Bus1983


    Since i was a child i trained hours to become a professional tennis player, i played a lot of tournaments around the world (ITF - junior world torneys), i felt that i had a lot of energy that gave me the power to work realy hard ... BUT i failed, i didnt reach my goal: to become one of the best ... WHY? Cause i didnt BELEAVED in myself, i thought that i CAN NOT do it, i wasnt beleaving that i could make/made it...Years gone and i thought a lot of myself,what if i would "thought different", maybe i would travel arround the planet and play the majors, but its over ... cause i was unably to handle my emotions ... i was to young to handle my mental problems ...

    Years later i came with NLHE in contact, by a friend from the university and i felt, that there is a possibility to give myself a second chance, to show myself that i can do it, TO BRING THE BEST OUT OF MYSELF!!!

    Right know i am on a point, where i think a lot about my life, my goals, are there right or not.

    I have two more exams and then i will get my university degree. After my tennis career i thought: "be a normal guy, do what others do, study, get a job, and it will be good",i think it was the wrong decision, cause life is to short to hear to others, to do what other wants from you!!!

    Maybe this shit should happen to me, that i start to understand what i really want, and start to beleave in myself, beleave is the fundament of knowlegde, what every sucsessfull person need

    I feel like a tiger in a cage ... LET ME OUT!!!

    I tired of nl50, which i crush, but i always ALWAYS need to cashout all my profit to go somewhere fancy or do something that I think is very nessecary for me though trully its not. I want ot be a succesfull poker player and not the low stakes dumbass grinder.

    I<d give it a shot because I never been able to really touch the success I really deserved , Maybe I didnt put enough effort in it, But you know what , I might give you a shot Its more about the title that I give you credit for , I usualy would not trust people to change things around , but hey maybe your right maybe your wrong we will see ... Never heard about you , but you seem to have extreme self confidance in yourself , so that could make the diference.

    Currently unemployed an there arent jobs in my country so poker is one of the ways to avoid leaving my country otherwise I must leave my daughter..

    My goals are to be regular NL25 because I believe that is a level that may give stability for 2014. Next year my goals are completly different but never knows..

    So, I play for the fyn and for the need.

    I know that I can with hard word and hard study but I'm very realist, I can dream bt alwayswith my feet on the ground.

  • fortunewheel


    Hello i'd like to join because i failed many of my past goals in life. I have had a turbulent past and i want to achieve something that i can be proud of. My life has recently stabilised and i have had alot of positive experiences lately and i even achieved some goals.

    In regards to poker i never had the motivation to seriously grind , i do have experience and i might have watched hundreds if not thousands of hours of pokervideos ( no exaggeration i'm addicted to them :) ). I'd love to prove the world wrong and show people that poker can have a positive impact on someone's life and can be a lifechanger. Thanks for your time. I hope you consider me to be part of your program.

  • BenskyBucks


    thx for your video series. i am in to improve
  • 00471


    That sounded interesting. I'm obviously in. I started learning poker seriously about 9 months ago. Before that there was just a month-long fun at FTP just before Black Friday. I'm gradualy making progress but I feel that I can do definitely better and climb the limits quicker. Poker has already changed my life a lot for the better but I want more. At the moment I'm after my first aggressive unsuccessful shot at NL50. My aim is to become a professional and in my country you can earn a decent living even when making a decent profit at NL50 but I have a strong desire for more.

    As for now, I have seen only one of your films a few weeks ago and it made a huge impact on me - the "no BS" video here at PS. I really value your advice after seeing that, since I believe we have similar views on many things.

    And now let's see what you have in store for me, Gordon.

  • PowerSnoopy


    I would like to join, because my game needs serious improvements. I’m stuck at NL 50 despite lots of reading. It’s the application during the game which causes problems to me. I like your style with a more global approach to the game. Perhaps this will allow me to fix the leaks.

  • kbwinsagain


    Seems strange to commit to something before any real substance is provided. I'll bite, though, and commit because I'm a sucker for "you can do anything" sales pitches. Actually, I WAS a sucker and am now a lot more skeptical so my commitment is conditional commitment. I was once spiritual but am now an atheist as my critical and reasoning mind finally threw out the concept of "belief without proof" which 99% of religious and self-development movements rely upon. So, I'm in until I'm out. Over to you now (for some substance,, that is).

    I´m in. I want to work on my poker business every day step by step to move from micro stakes to midstakes in 3 years. I cannot spend 8 hours a day with poker but I want to do a small step every single day.

    Because I'm tired. I'm tired of beeing average. I don't wanna be average. I want to have bracelet. I want to be professional poker player. I want to be very good ambassador for this game. But firstable, I have to have results. I want to play poker

    I just came across this video. I want to join because I want to improve on my HU game. I play HU cash at 25nl and 50nl, and will be looking to take shots at 100nl soon. I have found HU cash to be my favourite form of poker. I initially started play full ring, then moved to 6m. At no point during that period did I consider HU because I thought it would be too advanced for me. Then I watched the Durrrr Million Dollar Challenge and decided to try out and play a few hands on HU. I came to discover that the action and strategy involved in HU is more suited to me than FR or 6m, and I have never looked back. At this stage, I have been playing and studying the game and consider myself a decent player, but I want to reach that next level skill-wise and crush the stakes. The endgame would be to realise my full potential as a HU player (I realise that I am unlikely to reach durrrr, jungleman or isildur level, but if I can reach a level where I can comfortably beat mid stakes and even play at high stakes, I will be happy!

    I'm in! I am break even player on nl10-50. Coming to NL50 just to go broke and start over again. I have the motivation but not the right tools to really improve.

    I doubt someone really can help me to beat nl100+ but if someone can it is probably you.

    Because, I'm going to learn completly new game to me: Omaha. I start at PLO2, and I want to work hard. I want to start again, but now start correctly. With my new approach this should be my way to become better person. Not only poker, but also my life outside the computer.

    I'm in! I'm winning reg at nl25 sh regular/zoom tables but i somehow lost my passion for game and becoming better player after a few failed shots at nl50.

    I want to stop wasting time on non-productive things and focus on poker. I want to become successful nl200 reg by end of 2014.

    It's time to really commit myself. I know i can reach any goal i set if i focus all my efforts on important things. This time I'm gonna be serious.
