Video Variety

NL Holdem 469 videos
Limit Holdem 0 Videos
Tournaments 37 Videos
Sit-N-Go 0 Videos
Presentation 10 Videos
Omaha 30 Videos
Other 4 Videos
Release Schedule: No Set Schedule but 5 videos are released each week and stay pretty consistent.
Notes :

LeggoPoker is very heavily geared towards NL Holdem 6 max videos though is looking to increase output in just about every area. The upside is that they have secure enough good pros that they are able to produce 5 new videos a week which will help them catch the big sites. We feel they are missing a large part of the market by not offering more variety to their members.

Cash Games

NLHE – 6 Max Pro : Aejones, Mynameizgreg, Bobbofitos, and more … Notes :

This is where LeggoPoker adds value with their site. The pros that teach here beat the mid-stakes games and can teach up and comers their stategies to move up.

 
NLHE – Full Ring Pro : Various Notes :

There are now several full ring cash game videos, releasing approximately 2 per month now.

 
LHE – Full Ring Pro : Notes :

The Limit videos are a no where to be found on LeggoPoker.

Ratings :

  

Multi Table Tournaments (MTT)

Pro : Clayton, LuckyChewy, Seabeast Notes :

LeggoPoker has a few well established MTT specialists at their disposal but they are lacking quantity. LuckyChewy’s videos feature him multi-tabling a few MTT’s and it follows a progression through 3 parts till he ultimately wins one of the tournaments. Its a great way to follow the progression throughout different stages of a tournament. With his great 2009 WSOP, hopefully we can expect more MTT videos from Lucky Chewy in the near future. An alternative if you are havy into MTT’s could be PokerVT or Tournament Poker Edge.

Sit-N-Go’s (SNG)

Pro : NA Notes :

No Sitngos at Leggo Poker at this moment

Ratings :

  

Other Games (Stud, Omaha, Razz, etc.)

Notes :

LeggoPoker has decided to focus on the more popular game of NLHE 6-max and uses their resources towards producing those. There is now 30+ PL Omaha videos as Leggo has looked into growing this section of their training program. Limits include a mix of mid to high PLO tables and several HU videos.

Weaknesses

The biggest weakness LeggoPoker has at this point is lack of a video library. They are up and comers but it does take a variety of videos to make the consumers happy at the end of the day. Their focus is mostly on only 6 max NLHE is leaving out a huge segment of the market in our opinion. PTG also feels that the level of professionalism that some players exhibit is seriously lacking. We are all adults but we ca so without the swearing and other nonsensical comments that do not add anything to the videos. We feel like this distracted from the whole LeggoPoker experience and should be addressed.

  

Strengths

PTG was really happy with the level of analysis jam packed into most training videos. We felt that the use of the pause button and overlaying the analysis after the session was over really allowed the coaches to hammer home the points they needed to get across. Other video sites often get cut off by another hand from their analysis of a past hand. LeggoPoker is very innovative and we felt strongly that they have more analysis in each video because of this.

  

Expected Value: Is Leggo Poker worth it?

LeggoPoker is definitely worth it if your a 6-max NLHE player, or simply a cash game player but that’s about it at this point. The improvements that they have made with the site and video quality is refreshing, and the attempt in producing more PLO and MTT videos is welcomed. I think they have very in depth analysis on every video and the talk you through their exact thought process every hand. There is a ton of value there in thought process alone. We don’t think LeggoPoker is worth it yet for any other game from Limit to MTTs and SNGs as they just don’t try to go after this market. Leggo Poker members are also eligible for $25 off of the purchase of Hold’em Manager, making it only $55!
