Millions of poker players around the country, indeed, around the world, want to make more money playing poker. However, the majority of these players are not really giving themselves a fair chance to do so. Do you think a pro golfer players on the PGA tour without a swing coach? Baseball players have hitting instructors, pitching coaches, etc. Boxers have trainers. If you want to improve your poker game quickly and dramatically, one of the best things you can do is hire a poker coach.
Think about it. Would you take any other activity and flounder around throwing money at it without getting some one to show you the basics first? Even the best salespeople have no real life sales experience until they start selling, but they know how to sell things. They need someone to show them the way, and most importantly, they need to learn the secret ways of the sales profession before they are going to make money in the long run.
Obviously, a poker coach can help you become a better player. That's an important aspect of any trainer or professional you want to be. But, how can you make money from a poker coach? Probably not. The rake is too high. It's too hard to build a big bankroll, and poker coaches are too pricey (even the best ones are paying for their own coaches).
But, what if you could find a coach that would help you learn the game, build your bankroll, and teach you poker strategies and tactics, for a one-time fee? Would that be worth it? I think so!
There are so many different poker coaches on the net today, you may be overwhelmed, but don't worry, you're not alone. There are thousands of people in the world who want to learn how to play poker and make money at it. Most of them are just looking for legitimate, first-hand information.
When you find the right coach, you are going to be studying a very specific set of techniques and playing only the best-kept secrets in the market. Most of the good coaches are going to be very knowledgeable when it comes to poker, but they may not have taken any advanced course in poker, so you need to teach them everything!
Sure, you can buy a book and a training course online, but will it help you as a player? Of course not. Sure, you can spend hundreds of hours watching TV and reading articles, but what if that's not exactly what you want to do? How would you feel if the coach that you trusted told you he knew a "secret" that would make you a risk taker? Would you feel comfortable losing money?
When you find a coach, you need to stick with them for at least one month. Even if they bill themselves as "Texas Holdem coaches," it's doubtful that they have success rate as high as 1 percent, and that's if the coach is actually good. These coaches aren't giving you free information, they are giving you a different way of looking at the game, and soon that "secret" will be in reverse, you will be teaching the "secret" back to the coach.
You can make a lot of money off of internet poker, but you have to be prepared to do an awful lot of work for what you receive. Just reading an article on how to play, or a video on how to play, won't propel you into your dream land, but it will help you go from a play money player to someone that can potentially win money. Just reading articles, watching videos, and researching your own play is not enough to make you a good player, but if you make yourself a resource, you can make yourself a batch of cash. Just learning and keeping up to date on the latest strategies will help, because keeping up to date on strategies is an actual job, and not just an opinion.
If you struggle with bucking trends, and terminologies associated with betting, then you can always Google for how to say "no" to trends and then using the coach's advice, "no" becomes a skill, not a skill only.
