I am offering two group PLO analysis programs aimed at beginners and intermediate players. The courses will begin October 27 or November 3 and each will include 15 2-hour lessons and 3 2-hour office hours sessions.
For the 15 lessons the students will provide hands that may be used in the lessons, and I will provide supplementary content. Each session will end with a homework assignment to be finished by the next week. We will have group chat and forums available through Slack. The Beginner course will be capped at 8 students, and Intermediate at 6.
There will also be a participation and quality of activity competition that will result in one student from each group receiving free copies of all of my books that are currently done, including Advanced PLO Theory and any more books that are done by 6/1/18, plus hours of 1-1 coaching. Some other students will receive prizes as well.
The prices of the courses are $1500 for the Beginner course and $2500 for the Intermediate course. Payment options are Skrill, PayPal, and bank wire. Skrill is preferred, but all three are fine.
Once the courses fill, I will begin taking reservations for a second round starting in 2-3 month. Reservations require 50% upfront payment. I may run two classes of a course now if there is enough immediate demand. I am also taking $300 reservations for a $600 Novice course that will begin in January, and am working on solver-derived content for a $5000-$7500 course to start in mid-2018. I am taking an interest list for the Advanced Course.
A free 7-page 5000-word essay PLO Hand Archetypes that will drive Week 1 is included below. The full syllabi and associated information are also below. The general form of the courses is similar, but a key difference between them is that the Beginner themes for each week are preset, while the Intermediate themes will be voted on by the students based on a long list of options.
