I will help you develop a strategy that works for you. No made pre flop ranges. Not trying to impose you the way I play the game. Poker is a very complex game and understanding your context is very important to build a profitable and comfortable strategy for you. The initial step of my program is to identify your current level and limitations, including agressiveness, bankroll, objectives and slowly introducing concepts that will change your game (Forever) without making you risk more than you should.
Ps.: I am specialized in Live cash games.

About Bruno

Hello my name is Bruno and I simply LOVE POKER. I am a semi pro player (I play part time) but every time I play I want to crush the tables. It was not always like that and before working hard on my game I was a big loser so I know exactly what does it take to fine tune your game and turn you into

Private Poker Teacher

Poker is such a fun and intellectual game! Beyond knowing how to play, you need to be able to look at someone and based on just a few rounds of card playing with them, you need to be able to assess what kind of player they are.

Ranges, bluffs, riding it out, all these tactics are based on understanding how your opponent is working. Pot value, bet ratio, all these need to be considered when you're playing.

Working with me, we'll go over all the basics and the fundamentals of good playing so that you don't have to worry if you're doing it right, you'll know you have it right. From there we'll learn and discover ways of finding ranges of your cards, calculation the odds of your opponents cards, and discovering knew ways to interpret and understand moves your opponent makes.

Let's get started, see you at the tables.
