Adamlandelius is a €10.000 Coaching for Profits finisher in the NL 6-max Crusher program.
His results on his own after finishing the program was not as great as he wanted, so he decided to join the most strict program in BPC, the CFP Ironman.
After only 1.5 months, his results are already very good!
We had an interview with him to check how is everything in his life:
When did you start playing poker and when you decided to take it more seriously?
I was first introduced to poker in 2014 by a friend. We started to play at Zynga poker to get some knowledge before jumping on the real money action.
I knew from the beginning that I wanted to climb the stakes but with only a couple of hours spent in the “play money” poker tables and some advanced training videos, it didn’t go very well.
I started to take poker more serious once I signed up for CFP micro a little more than one year ago.
Where do you live and how is it to live there and what do you like a lot about it?
I live outside the Swedish city Uppsala on the countryside. It’s a quiet place and there is not much to distract you from playing poker, it has its pros and cons but I prefer it over the cites.
You’re already a Coaching for Profits finisher in the 6-max Crusher program. What made you decide to join the Ironman program?
Once I finished the crusher program I had some success on my own along with some private coaching. However, in this summer I hit my biggest downswing and my bankroll was getting smaller every month.
I needed help and already had thoughts about joining the program before the downswing.
In which stake did you start and which stake you’re playing now?
I started playing NL5 on the CFP 6-max Micro, now I’m playing NL100-200
How did BPC help you to improve your game?
The NoBS book from when I just started CFP was the most important poker strategy content I have ever read. An easy to apply default game plan was the key for me to start succeeding at the tables.
Further deeper learning of the game becomes much more fun once you are winning or at least break even.
How is it like to get coached by Iron? What has he done to help you improve your game?
Getting coached by Iron is great, the hand reading is on point, he spots your leaks very fast and gives you a well-thought solution.
It’s easy to follow his thought process and you get more than just one answer to your questions. I look forward to working more with him during this time.
All in all, how do you like the program so far? Study material, coaching sessions, etc.
I enjoyed going through the study material, like the NoBS which gives you a good default plan. The coaching sessions are also great, a lot of different coaching methods which is nice.
In your opinion, what is the best part of being in the Coaching for Profits Ironman program?
The best part is that we are a pretty small group, and for that reason, you can get a lot of 1 on 1 sessions. I think that’s partly the point of the
I think that’s partly the point of the program if we were 20 guys everyone’s progress would take a lot longer.
There is always room to improve, what you think you need to do to get even better results?
There is a lot of fine tuning I have to do in exploitative play. Getting a feel of how my opponents play, visualizing ranges and making good decisions after looking at their tendencies.
What gives you the motivation to get back to the tables every day?
The challenge to make it to higher stakes is always in the back of my head, that’s what helps to get things done at the tables even when I’m on a downswing
From your progress so far in the program, how much time do you think it’ll take to finish your contract?
Very hard to say, I thought 10 months when I started but if I keep on improving and doesn’t run into another big downswing I think it can be done in 5-6 months.
Any tips for motivation for your fellow grinders?
Don’t give short-term results much credit, instead, try to get motivated by making the best decisions possible.
It is a problem if you are constantly in HM2 looking how your day is going, because you can easily get distracted and the bad days kills your motivation.
If you could give one advice to the other players, what would that be?
If you have mental game problems, fix them as fast as possible. Be honest with yourself, instead of plowing through a day when you feel like shit take some time off and try again next day.
Thank you very much for the interview, Adam! Keep up the good work, I can see a €10.000+ month coming your way very soon!
