The first coaching session with me is a very busy one. We will go for 1 hour, and it’s basically me trying to get a better picture of you as a poker player. We will review your PokerTracker/HEM, both in terms of stats and how you use your HUD, your general play-style, and talk a little bit about yourself so I understand your goals in poker. This is the only session where I 100% would like to ghost you for a small session. I like to watch you play for about 20-40 minutes, just so I can see some real-time thought process. This alone will generally give me a good idea on types of learning sessions that need to happen in the future.
As with any type of learning, there will be homework. Don’t worry, it’s not hard! I like to begin all sessions with a 3 hand review and general review of the last coaching session. So really, your only homework is to play poker and remember a few hands (see, not that bad, right?). This is a general overview of how I do the standard first session (obviously it can be re-worked if you feel something else would work better for you). If you have any questions, or wish to set-up a coaching session, please feel free to email me at SplitSuit@gmail.com.
