    Want to think about the game differently ?
    Want to understand why you're missing in some spots ?
    Want to have your understand of this game torn apart and put back together correctly ?

    Hire Fausto as your coach. Great guy excellent understanding or the game, it's second nature to him to spots weaknesses and tell you what you need to fix them.

    Practical, directed coaching. Worth the money. I heartily endorse.

    I have procrastinated making a referral post for Fausto, because I don't want anyone else to have access to this stuff. I'm not just being cheeky either.

    Fausto is the real deal, he has been getting coaching himself for quite a while from some top level players/thinkers (Soto, SFY, etc.) He deeply understands a relevant strategy that is a combination of balanced and exploitative, with the deviations occurring within the strategy, often set-up by the strategy.

    I was just telling him how every time I listen to the recorded lessons we have done, I get something new out of it, that I couldn't see or hear at the time.

    I know I'm firmly on the path I want to be on and I owe a lot of credit to Fausto and his professional ability to teach some advanced stuff in a comprehensible way. I know what I am trying to do, why and what to specifically work on off the table to improve.

    His rates should easily be $500+ per hour. You are getting an absolute steal at his current price point.

    My game has become super swingy since I started implementing the strategy, as I am still in the learning process and I have a long way to go, but here are a few chip porn pics of some of my bigger wins since I started working with Fausto-

    I booked 5 sessions from Fausto and can truly say he has helped my game tremendously. Not only is he knowledgeable on cash game play, he breaks it down with a curriculum that is concise and holistic in theory making you think about the game like you never have before.

    Add to that the fact that he’s a great listener and teacher. He has a gift for explaining concepts in an understandable way with an attitude of no judgement and the idea that no question is a stupid question. And the most important thing that I love so much about Fausto is that he cares. He really wants to see his students grow and get better. If you’re looking to elevate your game and think outside the box I would highly recommend Fausto. I know I’m not done with him, I definitely plan to continue studying with him in the future.

    Highly recommend Fausto. Fausto’s coaching helped me see the game differently. Five of his students just got back from the academy including myself.
  • TxChipperTxChipper Red Chipper Posts: 22 ✭✭
    Finishing up with Fausto. He does an excellent job of explaining concepts. He makes sure you understand the concept before he moves on. (I admit I thought I understood a concept until I went back and listened to the recording - I'm getting there). He will make you think about your game.

    If you have questions about how you are playing - contact Fausto he will help look at your game differently. I will be continue to study with Fausto.

    Just finished my core course with Fausto. Have been looking to transition from just tournament play for the past year but have not been able to pull the trigger. Cash is a totally different game and my tournament strategies were just so -ev in cash, I just did not have the confidence to be able to be a winning cash player. Tom Fazio recommended Fausto highly so, I signed up with Fausto hoping to just get a few tools to use so I wouldn't be a big loser, as I had in the past when I attempted to play cash. Fausto was great he not only gave me the tools but, also the heavy equipment and blueprints to design an build my game on a proven solid foundation. I paid for 40% of his course in 3 hours this AM playing (.25/.50). Looking forward to building on his foundations and being part of the Wolf Pack. If your serious about improving and understanding this wonderful game at a different level Fausto is a great place to start.

    Been working with Fausto and even as an experienced player found it very helpful and insightful. Improved my advanced plays and study techniques. Also gave me a more focused and different way to think at the table
  • rexusrexus Red Chipper Posts: 14 ✭✭
    I've known Fausto for years through Red Chip. I signed up for his coaching package to help me prepare for the S4Y cash game academy. Fausto's instruction is spot on. He is knowledgeable, patient, and he totally understands all the issues that I encounter in live cash games. He has exposed me to a different way to look at the game.
    I totally recommend Fausto's coaching, it will be money very well spent.

    @rexus Would really like to hear your feedback about the S4Y academy when you complete it. Hope you post a review.
  • tfaziotfazio Red Chipper Posts: 819 ✭✭✭
    @Travis glad you joined us. I've been spouting about it for long enough. For those of you looking for direction, Fausto offers a unique window into a different way of seeing the game. Take the red pill Theo.

    Fausto presents an entirely different strategic perspective, which is nothing like what you'll learn from your poker buddies or in any books. It is a strategy that I guarantee 99.9% of your opponents are not aware of. You can find crazy success with his method, but it will take work on your part and lots of it....be prepared to put in time and thought and energy into your game away from the tables. Fausto is where he's at today because of his love of the game, his competitive spirit, and his tireless work ethic.

    Fausto is every bit as good a coach (if not better) as these fine folks have said he is.

    Personally, I already experienced a lot of success in the poker world. Fausto's teachings blow my mind. I wouldn't mind having him as my lifelong poker coach. He's that good.

    This guy is the real deal. If you're serious about getting to the next level, look no further. Just do yourself a favor, don't tell anyone else about him :)

    Well… there are a ton of things I would like to say about my coaching sessions with Fausto. I actually wrote a somewhat lengthy review and canned it. I decided it kinda read like an 80’s trailer for a bullied-kid movie starring me and essentially rolling Fausto into a medley of Yoda, Mr. Miyagi, and Ricky Linderman (kudos if you don’t have to google the last one).

    I’ll just say this… when you begin to implement this style of play, you are going to stand out. You’re going to cause reactions. Some will avoid you, some will target you, but nobody… NOBODY… will ever kick sand in your face again!

    It ain’t easy. It requires courage. It takes a lot of repetition. But when this stuff starts to sink in, it’s truly eye opening. There’s no magic pill (ahhhh… Morpheus... missed that one), you have to do the work. I’ve listened to those recorded sessions so many times that I’m beginning to think about poker in Fausto’s voice. Weird, right?

    Drop him a line and see where it goes.

    I have been playing poker for about 10 years. I've read many books. I've watched almost all of the Red Chip videos. I've scoured the internet for information and tutorials. So I have a good idea of the type of information out there. I was a recreational player that was pretty happy with my game before I hired Fausto.

    After a few months I am satisfied that it has helped quite a bit. I wasn’t introduced to anything new but I did begin to understand some things that I thought I already had a grasp of. He also helped me to understand the significance of some things I barely paid attention to.

    The plan of study was clearly laid out from the beginning. He was always on time. He took his time with explanations. He was conscious when I failed to understand the information and would often find other ways to explain it. His information was well organized

    When I started with Fausto I was down 1000BB in 3 months(I play once a week on average). After a few months of working with him I was up 1500BB. I attribute this swing to one key concept I was able to better understand. This is significant for me. I am looking forward to him helping me to truly understand some other concepts that I might be misapplying.

    Fausto’s course will not only show you how to play on a higher level or two more importantly he will show you how to think on a higher level.
    I have been a member of various poker coaching websites over the years and I read tons of books on the topic but nothing compares with sessions I have had with Fausto,the quality and amount of information he shared with me is pure gold.Priceless.
    I found him to be very accommodating,he worked around my busy schedule,he is very patient,comprehensive,no question is silly and nothing gets overlooked.
    The improvements won’t happen over night,his approach demands lots of work of table but it will make you a force to recon with.
    PS. Get him while you can and please keep it to your self 😊

    I’ll start this review off by saying to anyone who is considering or on the fence about hiring Fausto as a coach: You don’t know what you don’t know.

    There are things that you can find online that will improve your game, no doubt. There are other things that would be hard to find online. They are the bigger picture concepts. Then there are other things, smaller technical details that may require off table study to fully grasp and/or repetition while playing that will make you a good player. He tells you how to think about these things for yourself.

    These are some of the many things Fausto has taught me. I’ve had coaches in the past, subscribed to plenty of training sites, and bought many books. Things Fausto covered weren’t in any of them.

    I’m the type of person who wants to know why. I don’t just want the answer, I need the why. I believe Fausto has the same mindset. There were times I needed clarification on things we’ve covered and he would explain it differently and make me understand. He’s patient and non robotic. I appreciate that.

    Lastly, his approach has changed the way I play. Before I was playing an ABC and nitty. Trying to “hit”. While at the table I get, “Glad I’m on your left”, “You’re the raiser at the table”, and in general a lot of stares. I am slowly becoming the player I’ve feared.

    Fausto is an awesome coach! I recently finished my 4th coaching session and my game has improved greatly. I’ve learned more in the four sessions than I did with two years of watching videos, books, and articles. His coaching package is worth every penny. I’m glad i pulled the trigger and got coaching by Fausto!

    Okay I’m going to start like this. I was a TAG/NIT/YoungOMC. Now I knew this wasn’t the best strategy to beat poker. But I really didn’t know how to loosen it up or why. A friend of mine told me to get coaching from Fausto. After a while of struggling trying to loosen my game I decided to give him a shot. Wow I’m I happy I did!! I think about the game in a totally different way now. Fausto was patience and really took the time to explain all of the topics. I still have work to do but I know exactly what I need to focus on. Well worth the price of admission. Thx Fausto!!!

    Just finished my second session with Fausto. I went with the package so Im not finished yet. So far, its simply excellent.
    Ive been playing for 14 years and was an online 50nl grinder before Black Friday.
    Since then Ive tried to adjust to live play and keep up with all the info there is and sharpen my game. With all the randomized lessons and information I havent put together a solid comprehensive game plan.

    Fausto has already cleared up a lot of this and helped me formulate a comprehensive strategy. After the first session I went to the cardroom and just noticed how confident and comfortable I was throughout the entire session. It wasnt a crusher session, just an average one, but how I thought about the game was different enough to change my demeanor.

    He really is a great coach and if you're looking to clear, defined aggro style that works, it is definitely worth the investment.

    I’m a new player to poker and lost more than I care to admit in a short period of time which motivated me to not only make the money back but also learn to play like a pro. After going through several books and online resources I came across Fausto Valdez’s content. I’ve had my first 4 (out of 5) sessions with him and I have to say, I realized a multiple on my investment in the 1st session alone! He really has the ability to help you zoom out and see the big picture in a very clear and concise way. After zooming out, he zooms back in and also helps you connect the details that really refine one’s game. He’s very patient and truly tailors the session to your needs. He also applies the Socratic method by exploring your thinking out loud before walking you through the answer. This is great because he helps points out where your intuition, logic and assumptions were right or wrong.

    I’ve played exclusively online in my short poker career. Went into the casino for the 1st time and made some amateur mistakes by not calling out my bets or having some chips behind the line. Although I was an amateur to live play, I still possessed the skills Fausto taught me. By the end of my session the players were upset after I took their money! Exact words were: “I hate pros who pretend like they’re new to the game, this is ridiculous!”.

    I plan on finding ways to continue to work with Fausto in my new found journey to becoming a “real” pro ! 😊

    I’ve been playing poker for a few years and decided I wanted to take my game to the next level. I was introduced to Fausto thru the red chip poker podcast and various other podcasts. I reached out to him and just recently finished my fifth session. He has helped me improve my game immensely and immediately. I see the game from a completely different view. His coaching not only made me more confident but comfortable. Invest in yourself and start working with Fausto ASAP! I guarantee you won’t regret it.
  • CASEY MCASEY M Red Chipper Posts: 168 ✭✭
    I posted earlier in this thread after my first few sessions with Fausto. All of our sessions are finished now and all I can say is that my understanding of poker has immensely improved as well as my ability to execute at the tables.
    Also, my poker goals have become more clear and the strategy Fausto teaches is helping me reach them much much faster.
    Ill be working with him again for sure.
  • el_deeel_dee Red Chipper Posts: 1
    Just finished my fourth session with Fausto. I cannot speak highly enough about Fausto's teaching, and what it has done for my game.

    I was very impressed with the thoroughness and organization that went into each of our sessions. Every time I listen back to a recording of one of them, I pick up something new.

    Fausto helped me to see the game from a new perspective and I now find myself much more confident at the table. It's also a lot more fun to play the strategy that Fausto lays out for you than it is to play the more "TAGgy" style that I had been playing. Aside from being fun, his somewhat loose/aggressive strategy keeps your opponents guessing and forces them into making costly mistakes. This has been great for my bottom line so far.

    To top it all off, Fausto also happens to be a naturally great teacher. He's an excellent listener, and he definitely meets his students where they're at in their poker journey. He's also a really kind, down-to-earth, funny and accommodating guy. Do yourself a favor and sign up for some lessons!

    If you want a deeper understanding and a strategy for poker i recommend Fausto 1000%.

    I'd felt I had reached my maximum ability on my own and knew if I wanted to take my game and knowledge to the next level i needed help. After one session of coaching with Fausto I realized just how much I didn't know. Even if some of my thinking process was correct I had no true reason of why it worked, why it stopped working, or wasn't working. He was able to give me celerity, which is a rare thing in a game with so many variables and is very complex.

    I've had coaches before that would only go over hand histories and send me on my way. Fausto breaks down concepts and theories so that you are able to understand multiple situations and spots. Not just this one spot, at this certain time, against this certain player. He has given me a cleaner clearer thought process that helps me breakdown and asses situations easier.

    I have completed 4 sessions and looking forward to my final session and future coaching with Fausto.

    I cannot recommend working with Fausto enough!

    Working with Fausto has transformed my strategy and execution on and off the table for the better beyond what words can describe.

    He provides you with information to help you craft a specific strategy rather than providing a generic copy/paste blueprint for specific scenarios. He empowers you with the knowledge and tools to think critically from pre-flop to showdown so that you feel confident navigating the infinite number of situations you’ll face on the table.

    Above all, Fausto is a caring, patient, and an excellent educator. He’s happy to re-explain, provide examples, and to walk you through his own thought process to illustrate a concept. If you’re serious about taking your poker game to the next level, then I highly recommend you reach out to Fausto ASAP.
