Ricardo Finishes his Coaching for Profits Contract!

We have one more finisher in the NL 6-max Micro program!

Ricardo from Portugal reached his €5.000 profit target, congratulations!

You can read an interview with him below:


What is the biggest difference from before joining CFP to now?

Everything is different! Before BPC I read 2 outdated books and played with guys that learned how to play the week before in some home games. 😀

So I can´t say I knew much about poker. But now I know!


Which 3 things did you learn?

I learned how to win at the tables, how to think properly and learned about what matters the most and what doesn’t

Coaching for Profits Contract

Who was your favorite coach? The one that had the most influence on your game?

I can make a list for that on how they helped me:

Gordon: The way he managed to structure a lot of spots, into a simple harpoon was perfect. It gives you ways to adjust here and there without deviating from solid winning.
W34s3L: I had many hours of coaching with him and he taught me how to adjust properly to the situations.
A.Jackson: The HUD and the backed up strategies based on field results made my confidence increase.
Alfredo (recent CFP finisher): My study buddy.


What do you think everybody should do in order to succeed?

Easy, study 3-5h, play 8-10h per day, 6 days a week.

Finding a way to win is by far the hardest part and that, BPC already did it for us. It’s time-consuming until you reach the point you’re really winning, so you have to walk the initial path. There is no delegation at Poker. You got to do it yourself!


How do you like the structure, material and the coaching sessions of the program?

Everything is very intuitive and organized, I took advantage of all components (general strategy, coachings, and Alan Jackson’s reviews).


Now that you’re finished, what are your plans for the future poker-wise?

I haven’t reached my goal yet (winning 15-25k+ every month), so in my mind, I’m not a winner yet. 

So my plan is to finish NL200, which is almost done, start NL500 and be a winner at NL1000 before the end of the year. 

After achieving that, I’ll consider the poker freedom advantages (traveling, capitalizing the winnings, etc) and reduce a little the numbers of hours too. 😀 

It’ll be 1 year investing in poker skills and a few years collecting, let’s see out it goes! 🙂


Thank you very much for your time, Ricardo! I know time is short for you with all the grinding and studying! 

Keep crushing at the tables! And I hope you reach NL1000 very soon!

  1. The 1st one (250k hands) was shots at NL100, the 2nd and hardest and fastest (400k hands) was shots at NL200. On both was a bit downswig but also lack of skill at the time (needed to learn more concepts, more play to feel confortable at those unknown levels, etc). Fortunatly the solutions started to apear 🙂 ufff

  2. Good job 😀
    Lot of respect for your discipline in the 4k downswing! This shows your strength!
    Did you start with NL2 or on a higher level? How long does it takes to finish the 5k?

    1. Hi, I started at NL10. It takes around 4 to 5 months of hard work I would say, depends also on how you are prepared for higher levels and the swing you catch.
