Hi I have been playing poker now for about 10 years. I tend to win more than I lose and am a profitable player but I am really looking for ways to open up my game. I do not want to play tight or nitty and would like to develop more skill on being aggressive and developing some very advanced techniques to improve my game. I used to play MTT's when poker stars was legal and watched many videos in the past but now I play live 2/5 and 5/10 nl cash. I have used Deuces cracked, Blue fire poker, card runners, two plus two, etc. Many of these do not offer a substantial amount of live videos for cash games. I feel that my game may be a little stuck and I want to progress at this stage and become a much more profitable player. Does anyone have any recommendations for coaches etc or training programs for advanced players? I know that coaches can be pretty pricey but at this point I need to advance and get past this so that I can see some more benefits of my play. I guess that I am just stuck and do not know where to turn to. I mean I guess I could ask the guys at the casino that I always see making huge profits but as we all know, many do not like to share their strategies and offer advice to others. I have tried to examine their play in the past and notice they may 3 bet a lot etc, put pressure on opponents making better hands fold, squeeze plays, value betting, playing more pots in position, etc. I get all of this but at times I may lack when to correctly use them and apply these things to my game. Any advice on a coach or a program would be greatly appreciated. I really want to spend the next few months developing my game as it seems it has been solid but mediocre without much improvement for a good while. I look forward to your responses.

I honestly think talking with mates and getting involved with a group maybe through skype or something is the best place to start , and you should probably do that before looking at coaching.

As for style of play i came to a conclusion that you cant change how you play . You are either naturally aggressive or conservative and neither style is wrong . If your naturally conservative i think it is going to be very very hard to change your game , poker represents your personality so it's probably going to be very hard to be something your not . Your natural game and nature will always come through at the tables. As long as your not playing weak and passive i don't see an issue , id be happy to skype and chat about poker i only play upto 100nl online though and id say im most comfortable at 25nl and 50nl 6 max.
