I just signed up yesterday for floattheturn.com - I am a part time player who is a dad and a husband first, then comes poker. That does not mean that I don't want to learn, it just means that my priorities are a bit different then most players. I have been to other coaching sites, subscribed to them and to be honest, have not found much value in them.
This will probably be the last paid coaching site I join and to be honest, I joined it because it was cheap. I have watched a few videos, but must confess, I don't seem to get a lot out of watching other people play. I seem to get more out of videoing my play and going back and reviewing the self made video.
I am a tournament only player. I became tournament only after seeing a psychologist who told me my Adult Attention Deficit Disorder has no business around ring games - LOL - I can expound on that sometime if you like.
I have been playing poker since 2001. Since black Friday, I have mostly played the subscription sites which is like banging my head against the wall. I just don't trust the sites out the for US based players. Not too mention, when I have dabbled with Lock, Black Chip and a few others, it seems that there are no fish on those sites. I do subscribe to ClubWPT and CardPlayer poker sites just to keep in the game a bit. I do play a bit live around my area as we have "social" non-profit clubs that are not allowed to charge a rake or tournament fee so you pay a door fee and can play all day at the club. All tournament monies go into the prize pot. The only issue is that it is like $10.00 per day to play at these clubs and I rarely can play for more then 1 tournament so that makes the juice sky high which I hate.
I used to travel for a living providing school districts with technology training. This allowed me to play quite extensively around the states and the world. My fave place to play, outside of Vegas, is Tunica, MS. Just a nice old town feel to the place. It is also where I had one of my larger scores.
Last year, I made my first pilgrimage to Las Vegas for the WSOP. Was that ever a flop. I am going back this year with a new game plan.
On a personal level, I have a lovely wife and three boys. I am blessed to work from home which allows me time to both play and learn.
On the shameless plug level, I run a small blog over at http://www.pokercrucible.com the stats of the sites say people are hitting it, but I am not so sure - LOL
I look forward to being an active part of the community and if there is anything I can ever do to help with your game or just provide a laugh over the dumb things I have done at the table, please let me know.
