Hiring a poker coach is an investment and it’s important to make the most out of your time together. Here are some tips for your upcoming session.

1. Discuss with the poker coach beforehand.
The more the coach knows about your specific situation, the better they will be able to tailor the session to your needs. Having a discussion beforehand will allow the poker coach to fully prepare the session plan and materials ahead of time, meaning no time will be wasted during the class.

2. Ask questions during the session or in follow-up messages.
The more you interact during the session, the more insight the poker coach will get into your thought process. Tweaking this thought process can often be the most valuable takeaway from the session, so don’t be afraid to ask questions. If you think of something after the session, feel free to get in touch for clarification.

3. Send a full sample of hands.
Looking over hands you’ve marked yourself can be useful, but you don’t know what you don’t know, and so major leaks can easily be overlooked if the poker coach doesn’t get a full picture of your game. Again, this can be discussed with the poker coach ahead of time to make sure we are looking at the most impactful areas.

4. Commit to a regular study routine.
A poker coaching session is not a magic pill, and while we can have big breakthroughs, we should be aiming for consistent improvement. If you are only studying during a downswing, or are generally inconsistent, you are leaving money on the table. In fact, if you’re in an upswing, it may be time to double down on your study, both to avoid a complacent mindset, and also because leaks are more easily masked if you are running well. Ask your poker coach about building a killer study routine together.

5. Get a Database Review
The Database Review sessions are probably the most eye-opening. The poker coach can see a bird’s-eye view of your entire game and therefore spot the most important areas to work on. With this, we can build a highly efficient roadmap for self-study and future sessions together.
