They say that when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. For me that teacher has been Jonathan Little. Prior to engaging his services, I was having only modest success playing tournaments. First, I read his books Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Vol. 1, 2 &3. Next I subscribed to his site, FloatTheTurn.com and watched all of his videos. But the real clincher was hiring him as my personal poker coach. Since I have been under his tutelage, my game has grown by leaps and bounds. In the past 3 months, I have cashed for well over $100,000 in live tournaments. Jonathan is a master teacher who will clearly define your leaks. He will give you specific advice on how to improve. Most importantly, he teaches you how to think about the game. Working with him has without doubt been one of the best decisions I have ever made!
I would like to thank you for spending so much time with me last week during the webinar. You gave me a lot to think about and a lot to study. I have written up my notes and will be reviewing them. I’ve found that there are people who are great poker players but who are unable to write a coherent sentence. I’ve also come across really well-written books written by very poor poker players who give bad advice. It’s very difficult to find someone with both skills – poker and knowledge sharing. I think the poker community is lucky to have someone so willing to share what he knows about poker, and someone who is able to do it so effectively.
As the saying goes, “don’t bring a knife to a gun fight”! Until I met Jonathan Little I was doing just that. I didn’t have the proper tools to defend myself or to take advantage of key opportunities in the battleground of tournament poker.
Luckily for me, I met Jonathan Little just over a year ago. My poker life changed immediately! I won the very next tournament that I entered after meeting Jonathan and reading Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker Volume 1.
Through Jonathan’s books Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker Volumes 1 & 2, his poker website FloatTheTurn.com, his group and individual coaching, and his involvement in the app Instapoker, Jonathan has given me the tools necessary to succeed.
Jonathan Little is one of the top poker pros in the world yet he makes a point to give his students his full attention. By teaching others in an easy to read and understand format, his books have become, in my opinion, the new “poker bible”. They are a must read for any aspiring poker player.
Another great saying is, “hitch your wagon to a rising star”. Well, let me assure you that if you hitch your poker wagon to Jonathan Little, get ready to blast-off toward a fun, rewarding and successful poker career!
Thanks to you Jonathan. It has been a very rewarding year in poker and I look forward to continuing to work with you on my game. You are one of the good guys!
After carefully watching all the videos on FloatTheTurn.com over and over, and analyzing all the situations, I started making a lot of deep runs in poker tournaments.
I put in a lot of time grinding 18 man tournaments and spending all my profits in MTTs. Eventually, I made my first final table. It was in a $2Rebuy Turbo tournament on FullTiltPoker. When I got to the final table the first thing I did was to look at the stacks around. I said to myself “Hold on, I know this game! Everybody is so short in chips. This is just like an 18man Turbo final table.” It was true. As long as I didn’t do anything stupid, only bad luck could take that win from me. That day I didn’t get unlucky. I booked my first big win for more than $5,000. After that day, I had a good bankroll and eventually went on to win more tournaments.
The first thing I wanted to do was to be sure that my game was solid before moving to the next level. I set aside some money for coaching and I contacted Jonathan Little for 3 hours of private coaching. I wanted to do coaching with Jonathan because his training videos are the best. The way he explains complex poker dynamics in a given situation makes me so hungry for poker knowledge and eager to test out my new skills.
Fast-forward a few years, I have had many more sizable scores in tournaments, some over $50,000, and I now have students of my own. Even though I have excellent results, I still get coaching from Jonathan on a regular basis.
I knew that if I followed very simple bankroll management, tilt, and life rules, I would never go broke. As long as I am able to focus and think about each hand, I will make money in the long run playing poker. Besides all the strategic knowledge that I got from Jonathan, these rules were crucial. He taught me how to live a healthy life around poker, what to do when I am exhausted from playing a tournament for 10hours and still have to go for another 2 hours, how to handle big swings, and most important thing of all, how to teach myself to think and play great poker.
Recently, I was able to quit my job for good and start playing poker full-time. I owe all this to Jonathan, a great teacher and friend.
I just wanted to thank you again and let you know that I’m applying everything you taught in your webinars. I am already experiencing great results. I am making a lot of deep runs and even finished 2nd in a large event yesterday. I have already made more than 10 times what I have paid for your valuable webinars. Participating in your webinars has been the most +EV decision I have ever made.
I recently won a $320 NL WCOOP #54(Poker Stars) for $66,000. You are one of the people who helped me with video materials, books, personal coaching, support, and so on. Thank you very much for that. I still have a lot to learn so I look forward to additional coaching sessions.
I would like to thank you for the opportunity to learn from your knowledge, Your videos have been a great help to me.
I was recently in the middle of a very bad downswing, which led to huge amounts of tilt. As soon as I took a break and started watching your videos, I regained my senses and started playing well again. My game improved drastically and I feel that new great poker plays are just around the corner. Thanks to you, I have a new wind in my wings and feel great.
Thank you for your work.
I had a great time as always listening to Jonathan’s webinars. I only asked one question, but it was answered very well. Actually, the things I had thought about asking were all being answered as I the webinar progressed. It was the most amazing and satisfying thing that could have happened. It was a truly educational experience. Jonathan has a natural talent for teaching. I have learned so much in the one month I have been a part of Float The Turn that it changed my whole outlook on poker.
Jonathan clearly explained difficult concepts me, just by having a casual conversation during the webinar, which I have heard before but never understood. With Jonathan, everything fell into place for the very first time. The game is more fun now that I have come out of my “comfort zone”. Thank you so much Jonathan and everyone at Float The Turn who make it all possible.
