We promised to come back with more interesting news for all our players so during quarantine time we decided to keep an eye on what bitB team of professionals was preparing for poker players from all over the world.
Today we have the honor to present you an amazing project developed by one of bitB’s top MTT coaches, Luigi :
We will let Luigi, one of bitB Stacking partners and also one of the best coaches in the MTT section of bitB Hungary to say a few words about his project and the way it works:
bitB Spins: Hello, Luigi and nice to meet you! Can you please tell us a few words about yourself and your poker background?
Luigi: Hello everyone! I started to play poker in 2005. I was a very persistent mid-stakes grinder, some of you may remember me as ’Luigi da BP’ on Stars or ’profikiller73’ on Party Poker. I always spent a lot of time in the lab, figuring things out, discussing concepts with poker friends, and doing sims in PIO/HRC. I had some big scores live, including a WSOP bracelet in Vegas for the 10k PLH Championship, and I managed to be a steady winner for 13 years in online poker.
bitB Spins: Wow, this is quite an amazing description of you as a poker player. We are really interested to find out why you decided to leave behind your career as a poker player?
Luigi: In the last months, I was a student in bitB Staking. There I had 1-on-1 coachings with world-class players like Elmerixx, Pads, Oxota, Apo or Bencb. I was excited about this opportunity and always prepared very well for those sessions, but at the end of the 60 minutes, I usually felt disappointed. Not because those guys are not brilliant, but because we didn’t really manage to find the right spots to discuss. We spent a lot of time talking about hands where there was not much info to gain. I experienced the same inefficiency from the other side as well, as I was the head coach in the Hungarian section of bitB. I felt the need for a system which enables players to compare their decisions and quickly find the spots where their plays differ.
One day, when I was copy-pasting hands to weak tight, annoyed that it doesn’t support bounty info I asked myself: is this really how we share hand histories in 2018? I started thinking about how this process ideally should look like…What if we could make upload and share the hands super fast, by 1 click?
What if we could make the hands interactive by animating the action buttons?
What if we could quickly upload and link full tournaments or packages of marked hands?
I couldn’t help thinking about the platform I imagined, so I decided to quit my career as a poker player, I moved to Spain and I started managing the project full-time.
bitB Spins: And here we are: can we please start by telling us exactly what CheckDecide project is and how did it start?
Luigi: As I have already said, I used to be a poker player and a poker coach for almost 10 years, and about 2 years ago I realized that finding the spots where the coach and the student disagree is really time-consuming. So my original goal was to design a system which allows players to compare decisions: either the coach reviewing the hands of the student – or the student reviewing the hands of the coach CheckDecide animates the same action buttons as the original player faced when playing the hand and we book the decision of the visitor in each point. Then we create statistics automatically and highlight which are the spots that need to be discussed.
bitB Spins: We are sure that all bitB Spins members will be delighted to use this amazing software for improving their game and we want to thank you for sharing with us a piece of your time.
Stay tuned! bitB Spins team is preparing a hot summer for all its players!
