Poker Coaching Like most players who are still developing their skills, we have all reached a certain point or will in the future where we stop progressing. You can beat the game, but in the same token you are at a standstill and can't advance further. When this happens we have two paths we can take. Either you continue to play where you are and never show any signs of growth, or you can look for methods that have been proven to help a player meet their goals both live and online. One of these tools is Poker Coaching which is becoming increasingly popular both in online poker and in live games. It is as equally important and resourceful as your books in theory and strategy and can provide you with a whole new perspective to the game of poker.
The poker coach is the behind the scenes player who watches you play your game. They work through hand histories to better understand you and your habits. They then provide instructions and tutoring based on their own experiences and knowledge to help you progress to a goal that has been outlined before the sessions begin.

Online Poker Coaches
What makes this so beneficial is what our poker coaches can bring to the table. They will spot the leaks in your game that you didn't know about. Instead of posting your questions on a forum the coach will work with you to figure out why you keep getting sucked out on the river by a two outer or why your 3-bet was busted on the turn to an inside draw. Yes you can get quality feedback from a forum, but those members can't give you enough accurate information based on a single post alone. Ultimately these answers will be educated guesses rather than solutions.
A coach on the other hand will be better informed to assess these situations through meticulous data analysis, and watching you play. They will work alongside you to gather enough information to be able to provide you with new ideas to reduce your losses, challenge you in different areas and ultimately accelerate your learning process to achieve your goals.
Something players should realise is success does not happen overnight. Poker is such a complex game that it takes time to fully understand and adapt to new areas. When starting your tutoring sessions you need to discuss with your coach what your goals are and work on a plan to target these through multiple steps.
At Felt Poker we have several available coaches both with great backgrounds in cash games and tournament play live and online. Johnny, Mike, Randy and Glen are regular posters in the forum offering their expertise and knowledge to members covering Cash Game Coaching and Sit and Go Coaching. Both players are available to teach you how to adapt, adjust and advance into new areas that you are having difficulties with and will work with you to find your leaks. We are that confident in our services that we offer the first session free of charge for serious players who want to become winning players.
We also have a great collection of Free Poker Video Lessons that show you how to play and win. These videos cover: NL and Limit Cash Games, Sit and Go Tournaments, Multi-Table Tournaments, and Satellite tournaments.
