Poker Players Ante Up for Lessons

In a recent article “Poker Players Ante Up for Lessons”, still shows that many people are in the dark when it comes to playing winning poker.

A lot of people are spending hundreds and even thousands of dollars at Poker Boot Camps and up to $800/hr. for a poker coach to give them lessons. Conversely and a more common situation, the end of this article mentions a player who knowingly is losing at poker, still refuses to seek out training or a coach. Ego? Who’s right and who’s wrong?

As we know poker is an inexact science with some many variables, most people never learn how to properly develop a style that works best for them. Being good at anything is usually a result of what information you learn it from or how good your teachers where at teaching.

When it comes learning or improving your game, poker like life, it is learning process that never stops. Remember, it’s not the nature of the game that changes, it’s the players whom you are playing against that change.

Only after spending much money and many bad experiences learning or improving your style, does it become self evident that a good education can be invaluable. But at $800/hr, maybe the players mentioned in the article, should be focusing on becoming teachers rather than players.
