Trikkur 2 – 200NL at Full Tilt Poker

by trikkur

After the initial good responses to my first video, I decided that I wanted to continue making poker training videos. Recording my sessions was helping to improve my own poker game by forcing myself to do live commentary on my thought processes and then reviewing them later. I also realized it was also helping other micro and small stakes players, which allowed me to advertise my coaching services that I was starting to offer. I finally wanted a website to host my training videos and offer my coaching and so the original PokerTrikz was born. This website has went through a few different versions since then, but the main focus of helping low stakes players has always stayed the same.
