Last month we introduced our new program for the micro level poker players. If you play 0.25$ or 1$ Spin & Go's and you wish to join the Smart Spin community, this article is definitely for you. We sat with CuAt69UsdSng and here you have a bigger picture of the Smart Spin's "Aspirant" program.
Before that, take a peek into this image. CuAt69SngUsd is a legend. He used to play high stakes MTT and coach the MTT players winning hundreds of thousands of dollars while playing poker for a living. He reached the top and then, decided to try Spins. Needless to say that he crushed it and had a fast climb. Now, he is our coach and member of the 100$ group. His determinism is high as he won $100,000 for the 1st place in a SuperNova freeroll while playing on iPhone, during his girlfriend's prom. We have a picture for that! And last but not least, his experience in coaching groups and individuals made him create the Hobby Groups, a community project meant to bring players together.
We are proud to have him as our partner too. It wasn't an easy road, but it is a rich experience, no doubt. Reaching the top is a strong motivating thought and you can start stepping on this road with us now.
adaeg: Hello and thank you for this interview. You are CuAt69UsdSng. Your nickname is already popular in the Smart Spin’s community. Still, let’s introduce you to the new members. Please share with us your first steps in the poker world and of course, your experience so far, as a member of the Smart Spin family.
CuAt69UsdSng: I have been playing poker since 2007. I started with playing money and freerolls. And then, because I liked the game, I started attending
adaeg: Sounds like you were very determined to become the great poker player that you are today. You are a very good example for the low stakes players who are now able to join the Smart Spin community through the Aspirant program, right?
CuAt69UsdSng: Yes, indeed they can. They will find here a lot of support. We offer
adaeg: The first steps at the poker tables are not easy. What are the first things that a poker player should have in mind in his starting career?
CuAt69UsdSng: That would be the variance of poker. Even if you played the hand well, you can lose. Rate your play – not your luck. Improve the things you can control - pushing yourself to play more, spending time on learning materials and so on. Mindset is the most important as these first downswings may be quite demotivating for many people.
adaeg: Yeah. We all need motivation and a strong mind. They both have a strong effect on the learning process. Actually, they are built while overcoming our own downswings, both in life and in poker. Knowing all this, how can a poker player keep himself motivated, especially at the beginning?
CuAt69UsdSng: Well, I strongly suggest setting action goals - like playing
adaeg: Which are the common mistakes that should be avoided as much as possible?
CuAt69UsdSng: When it comes to technical aspects, one thing comes to my mind and that is playing too many tables. There's a myth or some kind of archetype that poker player should play at least 6 or 50 tables. At the very beginning it's more important to improve your skills and play deliberately. Now when rake back won’t be too big, there is no point in chasing rabbits. Increasing the number of tables is clearly a mistake. And from the strategic point of view: Don't play fit or fold. You and your opponent both hit the board about 30% of the time. Play your opponent, not your hand!
adaeg: Wow. That’s some real piece of advice for any player. Applying all this it’s already a great boost for the new grinders.
CuAt69UsdSng: I’m sure it is. And I would like to add something, especially for those who will grab this chance with the Aspirant program. You should all be patient. Investing money and time in poker works like compound percentage. If you work hard now, you will get a nice payday in a few months!
adaeg: Thank you, CuAt69UsdSng for sharing all this information.
