pretty obv the answer is to join CR since if he can financially only get one or the other theres enough leaks in his game that CR would be massively beneficial, and teh extra cost of a coach doesnt outweigh what he learns cos his fundamentals wont be strong enough.

So basically get a CR membership and get good, then get a coach to get better?

CR is great, and has helped my game a ton. I've also had some really good coaches. Both services can be very very very useful, but like someone said earlier, if you can afford to get coached you should be able to afford a CR membership too.

Plus, the services aren't really interchangeable. Admittedly some of the CR videos kind of suck, but the best ones are truly excellent - CTS and aba alone are worth the membership fee. Unless your coach is a high stakes sicko as well you won't be getting the same kind of super high level commentary.

So yeah, get CR if you can't afford both, and otherwise just get both.

Cardrunners has helped me tremendously in the 2months I've had it. I think it has already paid for itself for the next year. I haven't had a coach, but would imagine that would be alot more beneficial and expensive.

I like to watch the videos and think what I would do, and then hear the pros reasoning behind their play.

Getting a decent coach is probably THE best single thing you can do for your game IMO.

CR/Stox offer brilliant value for money though and ideally I would recommend coach + CR/Stox if you can afford it.
