I'm currently not offering personal coaching, however please look forward to the launch of wtflop.com
("What The Flop"), a subscription based poker training site offering thrice weekly write ups (with visual aid) of mathematical analysis of NLHE using CardrunnersEV software.
For more information on What The Flop, please pm me here or on 2p2.
The analysis in the blog links below are different than the analysis we will be doing at wtflop (for one thing, these are unedited and sloppy), but they give a hint as to the type of analysis we will offer.

There are a few guys around poker who are really, really, good but who for whatever reason never decide to take shots at big stakes and are content to put in their 20k hands a month and crush- D2 is one of those few (and he's not even a bumhunter!). I can attest to this as I've played him at 5/10 hu nl and he's tough as hell. Even better is the fact that he's doing this crushing relying on analytical play which he can teach and which is applicable at any stakes.
I've talked poker with d2 via skype for over a year now and I can definitely say that we see eye to eye when it comes to planning balanced exploitive strategies for hu poker. I've even received some coaching from d2 on stox ev which was time and money ridiculously well spent.

I'd go on record saying that I doubt anyone can find a coach that will help their understanding of the game more than Danny will for less than 3x his cost.. In fact I'd bet a lot of highstakes winners could get a lot of value out of a few hours of lessons. Alright enough shmoozing an old friend..

In our 1st session, Danny explained how to use stoxev to analyze hands and improve my game, he explained things very clearly and i had no problem understanding him even tho English is not my 1st language. I ve learnt a lot after the 1st session and will be looking to book 5+ sessions in the near future

Being able to play poker and being able to coach are obviously two completely different characteristics in a person, and Dan can do both. As a coach he has been excellent, he has an answer for any question I have and not only gives the answer, but he explains it as well. He has also been accommodating to any specific issues that arise, be it if you want to change your plan for your coaching session, or the time or anything like that.
All in all an excellent coach and an absolute steal at the prices he is offering.
