HOW TO RUN A STUDY GROUP IN CHECKDECIDE?

Having study mates and maximizing the synergy of your group is one of the crucial skills to unlock your true potential as a poker player.

If you don’t have a study group yet, read my previous post on why and how to form one!

Once you found the right guys, CheckDecide offers you a very time efficient solution for your team:

  • create group friendship
  • upload hands/tournaments/cash game sessions with restricted access
  • review hands from each other super quickly, without typing a word
  • focus the discussion on the spots where your plays differed!

Just follow a few simple steps!

STEP1: make sure all the members are friends with each other in CheckDecide’s system.
If it’s a small study group, you can do that manually on your profile page: open the ‘FRIENDS’ tab, and send/accept friend requests!

If your study group is big, just hit me on Discord (I’m Luigi#5756), and I can make group friendship on the backend side for all your guys by 1 click! 😉

STEP2: go to the general settings, modify default upload privacy to ‘FRIENDS’ 

–> whenever you upload hand, it will only be accessible for your friends

STEP3: open the ‘FOLLOWED’ tab on the home page

>> See all the uploads by the team members in one place, latest upload on top!

From this point all you have to do is checking this list and clicking through the fresh uploads.

The green checkmarks and numbers in the REVIEWED column indicate you already completed a hand/hand package.

Having more than ten years of experience as a coach I firmly believe full tournament review is the best way of learning. But it used to be too time consuming to execute regularly. Now, with CheckDecide you can review a full tournament in less than an hour! :partying_face:

Note: the new intermediate filter is designed to filter out all the boring folds, but leaves in all the hands where

  • Hero was blind or
  • Hero put money into the pot or
  • Hero folded any medium strength hand preflop or
  • Hero marked it with the ‘key’ icon

How to check the results?
Open the multibar to check the average match percentages for the whole group.


Or select one user to see his/her deviation!

And display anyone’s review!

>> Focus the discussion on the hands you played differently!
