A few weeks ago I mentioned that I had bought a Kindle book called The No BS Guide to Winning Online No Limit Texas Hold’em. It helped my game almost immediately. Prior to reading the book, I had finished in the money in single-table Sit’n’Go tournaments but had never won one. Within a day of reading the book, I won two. I also started placing in the money in large multi-table tournaments.
Well, I just found out that the book’s author has a website – internetpokercoach.com. You can buy the book there and have it delivered immediately in PDF format, or order a printed copy. He also has a blog that he updates frequently, and which is well worth reading if you want to get better in online no-limit hold’em. He occasionally talks about other games – Omaha, Stud, Razz – as well.
He also offers coaching lessons, where he railbirds (watches) the poker room or tournament in which you’re playing and gives advice over the phone. Having a third party observe your play is a great way to become aware of leaks in your game which are costing you money. I may take him up on this in the near future. I played a 10 cent SB/25 cent BB ring game for several hours the other day and ended up only winning $6. That’s better than losing your entire bankroll I suppose (which is what many players do), but I have a feeling I could be doing a lot better than a buck or two an hour at that level.
Anyway, if you play for money online, I highly recommend you read his blog and get his book. My copy has more than paid for itself.
