We have our first finisher in the MTT Coaching for Profits program!
Imre finished his 5k contract this week and, as usual, we asked a few questions to check how was his BPC experience.
Here is the interview:
What is the biggest difference from before joining CFP to now?
My approach to learning the game is much more systematical now.
Before BPC I was watching videos on random subjects, now I’m really trying to learn an aspect of the game in depth before moving to the next subject.
Which are the 3 most important things that you learned?
1) Work hard
2) Do not waste your time and concentrate on the most important things
3) Keep it simple. It is better to master a simple game plan than being mediocre with a complicated approach to the game.
How did you like the structure and material of the program?
MTT program material is very well organized and kept as simple as possible.
As the program is very new, it may be even a bit too simplified for advanced players, but I guess with time it will go much more in depth.
How was it like to get coached by Ben and Julian?
Ben is really good at explaining complicated things in a simple way and he always gives you a clear answer. With him, you will also get a free mental toughness training with each group coaching. He really gives you hard time, when you fuck up the things you should already know. You REALLY don’t want to attend Ben’s coaching unprepared, just never do that.
Julian is much softer with you but he does not tolerate when the student is wasting time on things he could have figure out himself. All in all, I really appreciate the time and effort both coaches put into making me a better player and I am grateful that I had a chance to learn from these world-class players and teachers! Thanks, guys!
What do you think everybody should do in order to succeed?
Work hard, but don’t rush. Do not try to learn everything at the same time, you will get overwhelmed. Be patient!
Now that you’re finished, what are your plans for the future poker-wise?
I really have to start putting in more hours playing.
One of my problems is, that I like the learning process much more than hardcore grinding but in the end, you will reach the rewards only when you are able to put your knowledge into work.
So yeah, I’ll try to switch my mindset from the student into a player now!
Thank you very much for your time, Imre! And congratulations finishing the program! Keep crushing at the tables!
