Hello.It's been strange these days - US players banned from PS and FTP, later on FTP got banned..For some time now I'm watching some good NLHE players moving to PLO, so to make it brief - poker is changing.And I think it's a good time to consider some change in my poker life aswell.
What I'm thinking about is investment - investment in my poker play.I don't rely on poker about money, but the truth is that I have been in this game for too long and maybe I should give myslef a chance and try and take a bit more professional look to my game.
So what I'm thinking about is starting playing HU in PS.What I need is information so I could be able to decide if it's worthy for me to make that investment or not.
I am not a multitabler.I enjoy playing 1 table 2 at most.Also I'm willing to start from 100NL, but considering my lack of experience maybe I would accept to play 50NL.Also I think that if i make this step I will definetly make it with some sort of long term coaching.
So for now I would ask you to help me to do my math - I want to make some calculations how much money should I need to make this happen, because this will be the main factor to decide weather I'll do it or not.
To sum it up - I want to start playing HU at PS at 100NL(maybe 50NL), I want to do it by playing 1 or at most 2 table and I want to make a long term coaching deal.Could you help me with the approximate sum that I'll need to begin with - how many Buy-ins for the limit given + how much do you think I'm gonna spend for a reasonable coaching for a reasonable period of time?

30 bi + for 50nl

50 bi + for 100nl

depends on edge and tilt control though. you could maybe start with 1k at 50nl since its only 1 or 2 tables, but question is, what is your loss tolerance? the games can move fast and you can drop a buy in or two pretty quickly, just like making a couple buy ins or so

you also have to decide how deep you are willing to play

Some greatt heads up lp players are F4zi and longple, and both have thought about coaching. Obviously, other unreal heads up players around. Ask them.

I do but my program is completely focused on HUsngs, don't know if I could be a good cash coach

Browsing through your hand histories makes me wonder that you might not be aware these games are possibly play money. Have you ever tried to cash out? - Kapol

If you're getting bored try dabbling in PLO. It's a good game for action junkies and since you're new, playing 1 table shouldnt get boring right away. Plus the player pool is still awful, so with some basic abc strategy, you should do ok at the micro limits.
