  1. Hi,
    I am aspring poker player, I’ve recently made a transition from live to online and things have not worked out as I thought.
    Not only I have to learn to install many different softwares to understsnd ranges in more detail and track my opponents stats, the pace just seem a bit too fast.

    I would like to arrange some training sessions with you online if you are available and see if that will help improve my game.

    • Online poker is much more difficult than live!

      Hi Hassan, yes I still do coaching for a handful of players from when I produced content for PartyPokerTV. I run a social media marketing business now but I still play a great deal of poker (all online at the moment!).

      There are many hand ranges that you would need on how to handle each position but this article can give you an idea:


      As for coaching the next time you play online please record your screen and send me the footage (around 20-30 minutes would be good to start with)

      Once you’ve recorded the video you can send me the clip for free on this site:


      Send the link to joeycraigpoker@hotmail.com

      Then I can take a look we can do a video call and I can go over the footage with you. We can also discuss the different types of software you might find useful too and go over some free-trials for you to test them out.
