I doubt Phil Gordon is net profitable over the last 5 years at the high stakes..

Perhaps the pros play with a lot higher bankrolls due to the variance but the 20 buy ins is a fairly common example especially when changing between limits.

As of 2010, Gordon's total live tournament winnings exceed $2,300,000. His 18 WSOP cashes account for $707,537 of his live tournament winnings.
I'm guessing he probably earns more money off his TV, Full tilt, and publishing activities.
In fact, that must be it, he's not making money so he sells books instead, much like a vendor!

When you post IB statements you might also want to post the page the that shows Deposits and Withdrawals.

There is also a page with P/L summary for every instrument traded over the statement period, which shows P/L exactly.

Posting the pages that show net changes in asset value might not be the same as posting your P/L.

Re: Why do they do it?

My personal belief is that there are a lot more scammers out there that are system sellers and signal sellers than coaches.
I think that due the personal nature of a coach it is a lot less open to scamming.

Some people also just love to teach. I bet everyone here remembers the teacher from school who was very enthusiastic about his subject and really enjoyed passing on his knowledge.

Here is an example of a very successful trader, coaching. His prices are down the page. Anyone fancy this guy as a coach?

I certainly would.

No I think there are definitely guys out there to seek out and destroy but I would think most of them would fall under the Holy Grail system/indicator/signal sellers not the coaches of the world.

(Edit) : Some complete idiot who could not convince anyone of his point of view, used a multi nick to reinforce his own ideas. Barjon removed his posts, so I deleted his quotes.
