OK so I am a gifted amateur looking for training, and there are hundreds of people waiting to take my money. What is a reasonable fee for a coach? How do I tell if they are a good one? What should I be really wary of?
Well it's gambling, so I guess there's always going to be people who want to take my money for nothing! I hope you didn't have too bad an experience.I can say from experience that you should definitely be checking the credentials of whoever you hire to help you, otherwise you may end up with a con artist.
I caught on to the fact that I was being scammed after the first meeting when I realized I knew more than my "coach" did. I really do hope you have good luck.Well it's gambling, so I guess there's always going to be people who want to take my money for nothing! I hope you didn't have too bad an experience.
Seena, I think you're right in saying that there are a lot of resources online these days. Youtube is a great source, but there's also a lot of good ebooks and websites out there.If you are looking to just learn the basics of the games, I don't think there is any need to pay someone because you will find loads of information online for free. But if you want to up your game, that's a different story. If you pick a tutor/teacher, you need to do a thorough check on them before handing them your money. It would be helpful if you can talk to some of the people they taught, in order to give you a better idea.
