I’ve been playing poker online and live for about 6 years. At first, I only played online, as I was intimidated by the thought of playing live against others, particularly men, who might not be very patient with me, a newcomer to the game.
After I moved to Las Vegas, I got the nerve to play live and found out ‘my’ game wasn’t working out as I’d hoped. I met Randi and she worked out a personalized poker course for me; at my speed and focusing solely on my poker shortcomings. After working with Randi over the last year, I am proud to say that just this weekend, I won a seat to the 2011 WSOP Main Event. I took the cash equivalent; I’m not ready for prime time, yet, but with Randi’s help, I should be ready for next year.
Poker isn’t for the faint at heart. Neither is an honest assessment of one’s poker shortcomings. But, if you want to become a winning poker player, then you have to be willing to do what it takes to change ‘your’ game to a winner’s game. I am proof positive that Randi can change your game into a winner’s game. — Jane G.
