Hi Just a quick intro. I'm Darren from the UK currently playing 2/5 on William Hill speed poker. Been playing as a break even rec player for a few years. Currently trying to plug some leaks. Recent courses have allowed me to think about the game in a much more detailed way and though its early days I think I'm starting to see some good results.
They are a good mix of regs and recreational players, with a lot of bad play particularly at the weekend. The other good thing is you can use a HUD on those tables which is useful. Generally play seems pretty tight and a lot of fit and fold going on. I've just taken a couple of your courses on Udemy and Crush/Conquer Microstakes and they have really helped. Its a case now of getting to a point where I can think a bit quicker and apply everything in real time. Like the new website.
I haven't played much on ipoker speed tables because for some reason, the €10nl and €50nl games never go.
Also, when I have played there, often times, you find the tables don't balance well and the overall experience isn't as good as playing on 888 or stars.
It used to be an ok network if you were a high volume player on a good RB deal but now, I think there are a handful of much better options than that network.
Thanks for the reply Regi
Still no players on 10 and 50 and I wouldn't want to take a jump from 5 to 20 when I get good. I do have some money on an 888 account and have played the SNAP games. I switched mainly because I couldn't use a HUD, and wanted to get a feel for the stats of other players. I also assumed that since William Hill was associated more with sportsbetting that there would be a few punters trying out poker and not really knowing what they were doing. My logic could well have been wrong here. I will give 888 or stars another go.
You should check out my $30nl course on playing without a HUD whilst the discount is in place.
I understand players being reluctant to let go of their HUD's but it's a level playing field as nobody else is using a HUD too.
$10nl Snap will definitely be softer than €5nl on ipoker in terms of the strength of the player pool and as William Hill is just part of a large network, your logic is slightly out. It's very likely William Hill provide more of the weaker players to the pool but the William Hill skin will be no less difficult than the skins that aren't the poker arm of a sports betting company.
Went through the 30NL course yesterday. Really useful stuff, and content that I haven't seen elsewhere. Really liked the population reads, database review, and note taking sections. Gave me an idea of how to get an edge without a HUD. Wish I hadn't deleted my hand history from when I was playing 888 about a month ago. I see what you mean about 888 its rare to find limper's on William Hill. I had a couple of questions but I will post in the course forum.
