Backing/Coaching for Pokerstars' 180's

It's on!

I teamed up with a good friend of mine (Gavin555), and the business is up and going. We're still in the process of setting up a website, but the important thing is we're ready. We got a few students alraedy. Still taking applications.  (Skype: Chavarov , Skype: Gavin_555)


copy/pasted here:

Myself (gavin555) and Chavarov are offering coaching/staking at Pokerstars' 180s. Chavarov will be conducting coaching sessions in spanish and english. I will be doing sessions in english. Players will be staked $1 and above.

Coaching will be strictly 1 on 1 with HH reviews. I will also review hhs for spanish speaking students so the student can get 2 different perspectives. Students will be able to discuss hh's with either coach on skype and organize weekly coaching sessions. There is an 8 hour time difference between myself and Chavarov, so one of us will usually be available for coaching/spot discussions.

All students must agree to be coached and staked, not one or the other, and play at a level we believe they will be most profitable. 

Bah, I was going to paste some graphs and stuff, but I suck at the internets. 

Gotta go analyze some hand histories right about now. 

Have a good day,

Third Blog entry = Coaching and Backing / Supernova / Translating / Fitness / Smoking

Coaching and Backing: 

I've gotten a few coaching requests already, and complied with a couple students. I'm also going to establish a staking business, but I'm still figuring out the terms and conditions. I'm confident I'll be ready in a few weeks. It's just that I'm a little anal retentive, and I want everything to be perfect. I bought the www.chavarov.com domain already. When the business is up and running, we'll have a forum, use dropbox, have group coaching sessions, etc etc.

So, if anyone's interested, hit me up on Skype. I'm usually there grinding. If I don't reply, I'll get back to you when I finish my session. 


Pffffff, being a supernova has never been my goal, but I think it would be a sweeeeeeet end of year bonus. I'm at 23k points right now. The supernova rate should be about 34k. To offset this difference, some mass-tabling microlimit cash is in order. By my calculations, I'd need to play about 100 extra hours of 25NL, so it seems very doable. I know, I know, I said in a past blog that cash games are tedious, but it's all about the money, baby! (or the bonuses, anyways)


Yeah, I'm gonna translate this blog eventually. It will be available at the website. I just haven't gotten around to doing it. 


I'm going to try doing the P90X workout. My back is completely sore right now, from doing 20.... count them, 20 pushups two days ago. That's sooooooooo pitiful. Hopefully it'll motivate me to work on my body and not just on my game. I do train tennis about 3 times per week, but my core strength is so disgusting. Need to do some serious work there. Of course, I won't just jump into the workout. I'll be doing situps, pushups and ab crunches for a few weeks. By the time I can do 100 of each, without feeling like I'm in the seventh circle of hell the next day, I'll start the P90X. 

Alright, have a good time at the tables,
