Hey everyone , excited to be in microgrinder community! My name is jay and I've been playing nlhe on and off for about 5 years. This is however the first community I'll be a part of and I'm stoked! I'm on the East coast of the good ol USA, NewJersey TO BE EXACT! I used to play live , before all my finances unfortunately got wrapped up in a medical family situation but that's life. During that time I was a bad reg lol, sometimes super nitty sometimes super agrotard but never making the appropriate adjustments at the appropriate times. I'm starting from almost scratch again, (40 BI @ 10NL) ...and from 2013 live 2-5 games, to 2017 nl10, I'm really struggling! Seems the games have gotten a bit tougher, but are still beatable and I'm here to work on my game, maybe make a study group w some ppl, sweat sessions, and maybe make some buddies while I'm at it, and eventually buy some courses if the bankroll heads in the right direction!  Alton thanks for creating this for everyone , I'm trying to use it to advance my game and hopefully everyone else is too . Feel free to pm me about whatever. Just joined here so gonna give myself a tour of the site! Later!

Welcome! I have had a student in New Jersey. Going from 2-5NL to 10NL is definitely an adjustment, as well as (like you said), games have gotten tougher.

This forum is kind of slow, so if you do want to try to start a study group, check out the micro stakes forum on 2+2 - there is a thread / sub-forum for starting study groups...I think you'll get some good responses there.

I've seen the players on PokerStars New Jersey through watching one of my students and I have to say, the games shouldn't be that tough to beat. Also, check out GlobalPoker.com - really soft player pool, so a good re-introduction to online poker!

The following users say thank you to Alton - MicroGrinder Poker for this useful post:

Hey Alton thanks for the reply man! So I ended up doing conquer micros course on Udemy (am currently doing I should say) and so far it's perfect. Just enough refresher stuff for me and just enough material for me to sharpen up on i.e. Combocounting handreview analysis etc etc. thanks for everything and especially for ur input on some of these things! Hopefully we can get this forum going strong again? Later man! (Also may be interested in 1v1 coaching in near future, would it be cool to PM you when I'm ready? Not sure if your available for that as u said you have a full daily schedule, but lmk) thanks again!

Unfortunately im from the EU and i'm playing a few limits lower then yourself (nl2 )so im not the ideal candidate for your studygroup but will definitely follow your blog! Will hang in here on this forum because i like the smallness of it and Anton really is a good teacher! 

Hope to hear more from your adventures at the tables! 🙂

Glad you're enjoying the course and its a good refresher.

Doubt this forum will get too busy...most poker forums are really quiet except for the big ones. But it would be nice.

Regarding coaching, I don't offer 1v1 coaching anymore - just not enough time. I always recommend Paul Regan of Regitime Poker School for people that want 1v1 coaching.

Cheers!
