Game improvement/coaching question
Feel free to lock if this is an inappropriate question...I read the FAQ and think I should be ok. It's going to be wordy, thanks to those who finish. [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]

I used to play on Party pretty regularly pre UIGEA, but it was mainly Stud. Since then, I haven't played nearly as much online.

Live, I am a consistent NL winner, almost all at the $1-$2 no limit level. I'm a numbers freak, and keep detailed stats, so I know that my live winrate is between $25-$30 per hour in a local game, slightly higher than that at the casino where players are obviously weaker.

However, online, I barely tread water when it comes to NL full ring, even as low as 50NL. I obviously am aware that the games are tougher comparable to live, even several levels lower, but I feel that anyone of above average intelligence that is willing to put the time in should have no trouble running at 5ptbb/100 at least that is my preliminary goal.

Before learning of this forum, and the Stoxpoker site, I signed up for Cardrunners. Thus far, it hasn't done me much good, but I think that has much more to do with the lack of video selection for full ring at those low limits than the quality of the site. Again, I believe Cardrunners is an excellent resource for many players, it just hasn't seemed to match up for me thus far.

Anyway, I am now interested in playing more, and would like to improve my game. I know that comparable to what many folks are playing (and obviously winning), shooting for 5ptbb/100 at 100NL is small potatoes. But, it's what I'd be happy with for now. My question is, what's the quickest way to get there? Let's assume that money is not an issue. Private coaching? Website membership? Books? I welcome any and all suggestions, be it in the forums, or via PM. I tend to be a perfectionist, and now that I'm interested in ramping up my play, I'd like to do it right.

Thanks to everyone who finished this, and I appreciate everyone's input.

Why don't you watch the 6 max vids on c/r and start playing it online. Full ring is dead.

Write down what you think your leaks are. Then think about how to improve upon each of them. Have you read all available materials? You have 76 posts on 2p2 in two years. You're not exhausting all available resources.

If you want to improve, you need to work hard. A coach can help you but won't do the work for you.
