The minimum contract length will be twelve months. In order for the deal to be fair for both parties, we need to have your action for a considerable number of hands, but we don’t want to create a situation whereby you’re incentivized to grind hands without any regard for quality. Therefore we insist all students commit to twelve months, playing at least 50k hands/month.
The standard deal we offer is as follows; We split everything (including rakeback) 50/50 on a monthly basis, for the first $10k of winnings, and 60/40 in the students favour thereafter. We also offer monthly promotions where students that show the biggest commitment towards improving their game can earn bonuses.
This deal is already market leading – but in exceptional circumstances we can show some flexibility in these numbers to reflect students already showing outstanding winrate and/or volume.
You are guaranteed to receive at least one individual session per month, plus we aim to have at least two group coaching sessions per week.
However, the best thing about CFP is that the priorities of the coach and student are perfectly aligned – both parties want the student to be the most profitable player they can be as soon as possible. If a student needs a session, the last thing we’d want to do is wait for them to play a certain number of hands beforehand.
Furthermore, the coaches regularly stream their playing and study sessions, and answer questions arising from them.
We’ve been adding content to the video library since November 2016. The videos include numerous session reviews (of coaches’ play and of students’ play), HH analysis, a series on using PIOsolver efficiently, Mental Game concepts, and database analysis, and overarching videos addressing how to develop a gameplan in a wide range of situations. The aim of the video library is to ensure all students have plenty of material to work on between coaching sessions.
If you are completely unknown to the poker community, you will need to be playing on PokerStars to be accepted into the program. The reason for this is that currently, Pokerstars is the only site we can request account audits and download the hands you’ve played directly from their servers. This safeguards us from people faking, or being dishonest, about their results. If you are unwilling to play a sample on Stars, you will need a very strong reference to make it onto the program. However, exceptions can and have been made for exceptional candidates.
No, we don’t offer coaching on an hourly basis, the only way to receive coaching from bitB Cash coaches is to join the team. Coaching for hourly creates a strange situation where the incentives of the player and the coach are very different – the coach wants to book a lot of hours while the student just wants the most useful information as quickly as possible. This is why many coaches offer discounts for buying many sessions upfront. It’s quite a rare thing for someone to move up through the stakes completely without help, we think the best way to do it is through a CFP program, hence we won’t accept offers for hourly paid coaching.
