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.

I have played a lot of on-line Texas Hold-Em. My biggest take was a 12k win. I understand the game from the basics to the more advanced techniques. I have worked for on-line sites, played many live tournaments, table play etc...
THIS IS TEXAS HOLD 'EM ONLY.
This class is directed more at the beginner and the "intermediate" player who feels stuck, unable to move to the upper echelon. This class is a stout review of the solid basics required to win more than you lose. That is, to come out ahead in the long run, instead of walking away at the wrong time, or simply playing bad hands or getting pulled into expensive pots on a draw. If you understand any of this description, this class is for you. If not, I would look elsewhere. This is not a class for advanced players. I am an advanced player and such a pairing would be an attempt at lateral instruction and that dynamic rarely works in my experience.

About Randy

I have always been an actor first, it is the craft and discipline in which I hold my advanced degrees; it is my first and eternal love. There really isn't much more one could add to such a claim. Simultaneously I have believed a teacher is born, not bred; and I was born to be in theatre, and now, w

Randy is a first rate coach. He is knowledgeable, experienced, and with an easy going natural style. Was very adaptable to my level of experience and was patient - no question was too dumb. I highly recommend him without any reservation. I have already booked my next session.

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
