Today we have the honour to close our “Meet our coaches” series with our €1,000,000 star! We are more than proud to bring to your attention one of our top coaches and players and the lucky winner of the 1 million Jackpot: Fetedlabiere!
More than this, our coach continues to be a real crusher at the €100’s and €250 Spin & GO stakes. Almost €210,000 EV made on 33,283 games is an amazing achievement which recommends Fetedlabiere as a hardworking and talented poker player and coach:
Fetedlabiere:Hey, I’m Stefan, also known as Fetedlabiere. I’m playing poker professionally for a few years and I started my career by playing 6max, but I quickly switched to HU Cash. At that time I was already creating videos and offering coaching sessions for a big poker school. All in all, I have to say that I was playing up to NL1k, when in 2016 my poker-related friends told me how profitable Spin & Go’s are. Soon after this moment, I understood what a big opportunity this is and I started playing this poker format more frequently. I started slowly with the €10 Spin & Go’s and I committed myself fully to this type of poker game in June. At the end of 2017, I was already playing €100’s and I started to feel comfortable at this limit.
In 2017 I started my career as a Spin & Go coach and I had multiple projects on which I focused a lot on helping small groups of students to improve very quickly. Right now I’m mostly playing €250’s and only adding some €100’s if there is no traffic at the highest Spin & Go stakes.
We are developing a Gameplan vs regs that will have a similar edge as the most complex strategies and therefore I am working hard for making this strategy to be easier to apply during the game. I will provide content for our students in an easier to digest format which will still contain tons of information. Furthermore, there are a lot of small things many other poker schools neglect and they are not creating the right environment for students to use their full potential, and this is where I see one of our biggest strengths.
Saydana: Let’s talk a little bit about money motivation. I know that not so long ago you hit the Jackpot and won it. Did this thing change something in you as a poker player?
Saydana: What is the winning of a Jackpot for a poker player as far as it concerns you?
During the first few days I certainly had the feeling that I was super lucky, but as always in life, this feeling decreases over time and at some point, it kinda feels normal.
1) Learning how to play shallow. This mostly comes down to learning charts and understanding some of the changes when shallow, but this was a big factor for me at the beginning because I never played with less than 50 BB.2) Learning how to beat recreational players. In my former poker school we had some great learning material that covered this topic. Here at bitB Spins we perfected what we learned back then and created our own video series for our students so they can easily overcome this obstacle.3) Struggling when moving up to 50’s. While moving up to this stake I had the feeling that I need to be extra careful on this new limit and change how I play, when in fact the most important thing was to keep playing the same game that got me to 50’s. At that point I was lucky and had a great Mentor who I could constantly talk with and who helped me understand how I had to change my approach and not over-adjust to the new stake. And I still have a lot of obstacles that I have to face every day.
