Poker Coaching

Hey guys,
I've decided that I'd like to take poker more seriously. I'm not a good player at the moment, I learn well when taught. I'm looking for a coach in Dublin. Any recommendations? Thanks

a personal coach would be insane to be honest just way too much money.it would be usefull but not unless you are willing to spend at least 50/hr.(thats way the cheapest ive seen)
sign up to runitonce watch a ton of videos then ask questions on a forum or the pro making the video will answer your questions.
or if money is no object then knock yourself out....nico santy...doke? try different ones see who you like.

yeah, look at training sites first.

Dont even know which ones there are anymore, but they're a pretty good way to get into training/coaching

training sites are meh tbh, and a waste of money for the actual content you will get. most just churn out terrible video after terrible video with the odd good video thrown in here and there.

In saying that so many coaches are over charging for what you are receiving also, just because their results are good doesnt mean that translates to them being a good coach. would recommend looking for someone who coaches with a math based/analyzing stats base/pio solver base approach, over someone who advertises "$50 an hour for hh review".

coaches i would suggest would be expensive enough apestyles/sam greenwood/bencb all charging 250+ and the rest per hour though.You get great quality coaching for those prices though, majority(not all) charging $100 and below you wont get the same quality coaching imo.

EDIT: also if you arent doing any work on your game yourself then no matter who is coaching you, you will just be lighting money on fire by paying for these coaches.
