I am very excited about this venture and it should be extremely useful for players at every level. We hope to make it a very interactive experience. The ultimate goal is to turn Ryan into a serious poker player who can make a lot of money playing the game. I believe we can do it

Leading online poker portal, Online Poker Insider, is proud to announce the launch of the "The Poker Experiment." The Experiment will unfold in real-time on the Online Poker Insider website, and is aimed at turning a fish into a shark. A complete novice poker player has been taken under the wing of a professional poker player, and is gradually being trained on all the necessary poker skills to ultimately win tournaments at the highest level.
The Poker Experiment uses a Blog format, with every playing session being documented in detail by the student. The pro comments on every session, provides advice and posts expert guides that address specific issues in the student's play. The best thing about this approach is that it allows other novice poker players to follow the process and in doing so, learn to play better poker systematically. Other novices are also invited to challenge the student, with prizes up for grabs if they beat him.
The Experiment uses a tracking and scoring system as a basis to evaluate the student's progress, and to uncover flaws in his game.
"This is a truly unique opportunity for a complete novice to become a serious poker player. It also presents a great opportunity for site visitors to follow the process and learn about playing poker in bite size chunks as part of a well structured process" said Marc, resident poker pro at Poker Insider. "I have been looking to do this for years now, and when I saw the student play for the first time, I recognized the opportunity. He has the basic skills and understanding, and has a very natural feel for the game".
The student, Ryan, said "This is an awesome opportunity. Learning to play proper poker is daunting. But Marc has devised a very good process that already seems to be working. I have more than doubled my bankroll in three months, and that is ultimately what this is all about".
Marc and Ryan conceived the idea after Ryan had played live poker for the first time at the Bellagio in Las Vegas, and Marc had won a NL Hold'em tournament.
"I am very excited about this venture and it should be extremely useful for players at every level. We hope to make it a very interactive experience. The ultimate goal is to turn Ryan into a serious poker player who can make a lot of money playing the game. I believe we can do it" said Marc.
