- Lots of videos

- Learn the mindset of a top online pro
- New videos added weekly
- Monthly Freeroll on Paradise Poker for members
- Intro section for beginners to poker
- Bonus 5 card draw strategy section
- Message board for communicating with NSXT2
- Monthly membership fee, although it's quite small.
- Only 1 professional to watch videos of, would be better if they have multiple online pro's so you could see different style of players and how they think and how they play.
- On the first 2 tournaments I watched that were rebuy tournaments he never recorded the rebuy period so I wasn't able to see how he played the rebuy period.
- The layout of all the videos in the members area could be better organized.

I was a bit skeptical at first when signing up for a membership, but all those doubts we're quickly blown away once I saw the first video. It is truly amazing to be able to actually watch a top online player play a tournament, see how he plays certain hands, what he's thinking. The audio is excellent as well, not only do you get to see his hole cards and how he plays but he talks the whole time to tell you exactly what he's thinking. Never before have you been able to tap into the mind and pick the brain of a top professional. The site not only has excellent videos, they also have written documents on poker strategies, tips and hints. For a little more then the price of a poker book you can get access to over 70+ hours of poker tips and strategies to make you a better player. It doesn't matter what skill level you are at either, whether you're a seasoned pro or beginner you will gain something from becoming a member at this site.

I been a RPT member for about 3-4 months, and have watched nearly every video. They are very educational and he teaches you basically everything to be a smart and agressive player, and also to get good reads on your opponents. The membership is now $150 sign up I believe and $40 a month. Good thing I got it when it was only $50. STILL WORTH THE NEW PRICE FOR SURE!!
