Wondering if this holds any interest for the posters here. Daniel Negreanu teaches poker masterclasses on video.

As much as I like Negreanu as a tournament player, he's an even better cash player.
BUT ... as with "all things poker", there's a pretty good chance you'll find everything he proposes to teach you in Sklansky's Theory of Poker.

It's only a personal opinion, but ToP is really the only thing you'll ever need in terms of poker instruction.
I guess understanding Doyle Brunson's original theory(s) from back in the day can't hurt either (the power of small suited connectors et all), but Brunson's style of play is pretty commonplace these days. It's a long way from the days when Brunson was the only guy at the table who knew how to kick major butt.

As for trying to instruct somebody on identifying tells, it's (again) just a personal opinion, but I don't believe such instruction is possible ... I believe that picking up tells is something one acquires only through personal experience and actual play.

I'd defintely watch Negreanu's masterclass videos out of interest, but it's not something I'd pay for.

Thanks. I'd definitely watch Negreanu's masterclass videos also if only because is think he is cool. It has been ages since I read and watched Caro's work on Tells but I think they improved my game.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

I read, and re-read Caro's book Tommy, and for the life of me I couldn't get anything at all out of it that wasn't simply common sense.

I bought the class a little while ago. It’s not bad. Daniel is like Jason England, you could listen to teach for hours on end and never get bored.

Well, Caro's work on Tells is perhaps based on his experience as opposed to logic and I have seen the same tells in play and I get what he is talking about.

The game has evolved well beyond Caro’s . Back then game was about the two cards you have vs what your opponent has. That is not the way the game is played now.

The cash game of choice here is Omaha 4,5 or 6 card dealers choice but the comps are usually Hold'em.

I subscribed to Masterclass initially for the Negreanu poker course (which is very good). I went for the full subscription (vs the single class) and am very glad I did as there are lots of other interesting topics and with the full pass they are all included. For example, I just went through the Penn and Teller course. Is somewhat basic but enjoyed listening to them and there were a few great nuggets (a couple of great lessons where together with Johhny Thompson they workshop with two performers including Piff the Magic Dragon).
