A player that contacted me and asked for coaching (most of the time I say "not coaching atm" - sometimes though I take someone on for a bit) asked me about my winrate. I sent him my 2010 & 2011 results + graphs (close to million hands) and he wrote me back:
"when I asked about your win rate, I wasn't questioning your abilities."
I wrote back:
"You SHOULD question my abilities. You SHOULD question my winrate. You SHOULD question my coaching. Too many people in the poker industry aren't questioned and don't want to be questioned and that is a problem.
After these two sessions you have a sense of what I can offer and how I work. I would also encourage you (and all my students for that matter) to not settle for me as a coach just yet. If this is your first opportunity working with someone, you own it to yourself and me to look around the marketplace and see if there is someone better for you. I need to be clear - I am not saying that I don't want to work with you, but I do think that you should have a clear picture about what other coaches are doing and only then can you decide if I am the right one for you."
Only informed consumers can truly make good choices. I am all for transparency & choices in any industry.
