Check out how to get yourself a study partner!

We released the official rulebook for Smart Tinder!

Why should you work with other poker players?

You could have asked yourself this question many times, and we can see why. You see every other player as a threat and as an enemy, especially if you often meet this particular person at the tables. You want to do everything by yourself and reach the higher stakes without anyone's help or with as little of it as possible. Or maybe you are just naturally shy and don't know how it will end up.

But even the Smart Spin's community proves that getting the knowledge from others is an excellent way to improve.

Lately, we are doing more to prove to you that having a study partner is a must in today's poker world:

There was a captivating article about it in the mid-August

Then, we announced our Smart Tinder initiative

Next, we showed you how Fetedlabiere and Darkornot became two top Smart Spinners in 2017

Finally, we went back in time to remind you about the cooperation of bakudranski and killuifuplay

As a professional poker player, you should be doing everything in your power to gain an advantage at the tables. Smart Spin gives you one more tool for that to happen:


How to participate in Smart Tinder?

There are still a few days to apply for the first edition of our program and getting paired up with another poker player within your group stakes.

The sooner you will do it, the faster you will feel the difference in your game. That means the higher EV, lower swings, more significant payment every month and an additional mindset help from your study partner (it helps more than you think!).

To apply for the first edition, you only need to do this one simple step:


Go to your spreadsheet,
enter the August tab,
and fill out the application table in the top-centre of your screen.


That's it! You will be added to our program and will find out the nickname of your study partner at the beginning of September. Contact him and start working together right away!

But remember that you will have a whole month to know each other and find out how your cooperation goes. Don't miss the chance to know more about your study partner.

Then, at the end of the month, it can go two ways:

  • You are satisfied with your cooperation, and you go along with it. You don't have to reapply for Smart Tinder next month.
  • You are not satisfied, and you would like to work with someone else. Remember two things about this!
    • Do not be picky. It can be tough to find a person who will fit you, and you need to be 100% sure that this is not the right person. It means that your study partner did not put as many hours into poker as he described in his application (and we will pair you up mostly on that premise) or mostly, he was unwilling to cooperate. It's a broad term, though! It doesn't mean that your study partner is different and thus, not suitable for you. Remember about Darkornot and Fetedlabiere who were two different players and they complete each other perfectly!
    • You need to contact your study partner. It's not easy, but you can't just apply for the next edition behind his back. Thank him for the month you two have been working together and tell him that you would like to find someone new. We believe that, for the most majority of you, this could work without saying anything at all, but we don't want to create some strange situations in which one part of the duo was thinking it was doing good and the other part was looking for someone new.

How should you work together?

Having a study partner is not enough. You need to know what you are doing and why you are doing it.

CuAt69UsdSng taught us a lot about working with other poker players and in his newest video, he returns to this concept to give you an additional knowledge.
