This video is a recording of coaching review by Gordon, for a 6-max student.
Gordon is known for his no-bullshit style of coaching, which some people love, while others might find it “offensive”. He doesn’t care for political correctness, likes to use dirty jokes and locker-room talk during his sessions, and laugh about it together with the student after the session. The students know he delivers results for them. One thing is for sure – you will never get bored watching Gordons sessions! 😉
While such videos are very entertaining, they also carry a lot of educational value. The topic of this particular session was how to decide when it’s better to fastplay, and when you should slowplay with strong hands.
