Gunn fires thanks to Badbeat training

Gunn fires thanks to Badbeat training

Training is one of the quickest routes to tournament success and one player who can attest to that is Paul Gunn. The sponsored player had a Sunday to remember, finishing second in the €100k guaranteed event at Royal Vegas Poker for a score of over €16k, and he attributed his success to Badbeat's revolutionary MyGame training system.

“I’ve learned to be pretty aggressive on the bubbles as people tighten up trying to cash more and floating in a lot of pots then bluffing. It worked a treat. Since I’ve been back with these last two months I can’t give my mentor Jon Huckle any higher praise. He’s given me the confidence to believe in my game.” said Gunn.

It could have been even better for Gunn who suffered a pretty bad beat during heads up play, his pocket jacks overturned by his opponent's bluff with 8c10c. “I was gutted but at the same time chuffed with the result and knowing that I played the hand right.” said Gunn.'s MyGame system is available to anyone who wants to improve their game and best of all it's free. Players who register at one of's partner sites will gain access to tutorials, the unique hands analysis tool, Report Cards, and Social gaming features. Players can also learn on the move thanks to a new iPhone app.

“This is a great example of what a good player can do with the correct tournament selection,” said Paul’s mentor Jon Huckle. “With some coaching he’s learned to control his daily spend on MTT’s and use his profit to buy into the larger weekly events rather than killing his bankroll. He’s managed to cash consistently and build his profit. It was only a matter of time until he hit big!”

“Paul has responded very well to our training and mentoring,” said founder John Conroy. “We’re so pleased with his development so far that we’re rewarding him with a seat at the £300 Deepstack live event at DTD Nottingham next weekend!”
