Evan 'Gripsed' Jarvis

While it is indisputable that everyone can benefit from professional guidance, an equal and opposing truth is that not everyone is ready to be helped. If you’re experiencing the desire to make changes to your life or poker game, then one-on-one coaching with me may be for you. And my coaching programs go beyond your performance at the tables and show you how the way you live affects the way you play. We then take steps to modify your course so you can reach your goals. 

Here’s what I promise you:

I’ll help you identify the best next step to take, and help you find the motivation to follow through on taking that step so that you can open up a new level of experience in your life.

  • I will work WITH you if you will work with me.
  • I will not work FOR you if you don’t intend to do your share.
  • I can only show you the path; I cannot walk it for you.

My greatest reward in coaching comes from seeing the progress that clients make between sessions. It’s what keeps me motivated to continue to do what I do.
