Scott M.

1 Poker lesson

He takes a holistic approach, not just going over the basics like hand ranges, EV and odds, but also bankroll management, mental strategies on how to improve and avoid tilt, and how to prepare for a poker session to maintain maximum focus throughout the session. He will also take time for hand analysis of hands you played and had questions about, or interesting hands he played that highlight certain lessons. I've been very happy with Italo as my poker coach and would highly recommend him.
Walter G.

1 Poker lesson

In our lesson he helped me fix some small errors in my playing style, that were effecting my game, which I didn’t even notice were happening before. Ben is also very punctual, and has excellent communication skills. The lesson plan was a positive experience and would I definitely recommend him to other players who want to get better at the game of Poker or even players who just need to brush up on their skills in general.
