Hey, I picked up a bundle of rocks a few weeks ago and treated myself to Marko Polo's latest video teaching. Has a decent price, but it also really offers something that I have not yet found on the market. Believe it or not: "Alpha-Game" is actually not a pure PU product, but a step-by-step guide to the Alpha, not only in PU. And there for some maybe a Natural, who knows... I myself am not a newbee in the Game, otherwise I wouldn't have come up with the idea to write you such a fat review here, but as we all know nobody is perfect. In any case, the whole thing gave me a maximum boost to go out again more, and was also a pretty perfect summary of all the necessary skills. I listened to a lot of it in the car via phone/system. To sit down at the kitchen table at home was several hours of material too long for me. In addition, Marko presents the whole thing in such an entertaining and exciting way that even a long car ride flies by quickly. However, I can only advise beginners to proceed slowly: Watch all the clips calmly and in bites and follow all the exercises. Then you will really get the most out of it! The magic words here are continuity, constancy and consistency! Unlike other products, the playful approach to PU and the focus on serious interest in the targets up to the relationship that shines through again and again - not the hypocrisy and pathetic pretense often sold as "masculine". Marko's videos actually have the potential to make you a different person - he doesn't want you to play a different person. Of course, no one can expect an immediate total change by watching them - but no one who seriously studies his videos will stick to PU and run after new skills to finally get something going. So a deep change is possible if you want it! First of all, I find it extremely good that so much time is invested in the preparation. Old beliefs are released and Marko quickly makes it clear that everything is just a game, in which there are of course sometimes rounds that you lose, but you get better in the process. In this way, he reduces deep-seated fears and builds you up into adult winners. It's also good that he honestly addresses the important role of looks, unlike the plethora of coaches who tell you that you can get any woman into bed, no matter how you look (this was even the title of an often sold PU book^^). You learn to control your emotions, not only outwardly, but especially towards yourself. A particularly good approach for me here is to consider that a Natural is a "radically honest person". So Marko's idea behind the video is to make you Naturals, not actors. Women see through that pretty quickly. They don't have a problem with your insecurities - but they do have a problem if you don't admit them honestly. I didn't get that much out of the video on body language, which is probably due to my job and the thousands of coaching sessions we've had. And yet there are some very awesome approaches: Funnily enough, I had never thought about how quickly you can raise and lower the value of an actually cool group you're traveling with. Learned here, and is also totally logical and simple :). It's also great that Marko gets the curve between posture and voice leading. He really proves to be someone who can teach not only PUers something, just as many tips are also applicable to many other areas of life. The screening video is a sobering affair. I think you can really tell how unbelievable Marko thinks it is that a video is needed for this, but that's just the way it is. Also, it's probably weird for a lot of beginners, but there's really a bunch of guys who need these tips! Most probably get stuck in front of the console and the pizza box, but a few make the step into real life. And for them, this video is. So they can get in on the action too. In the daygame Marko is noticeably in his element, and frankly it's quite refreshing to see something other than a white wall as a background in the videos, namely the playground "city". You quickly learn how to automate the first steps of the approach, and that with fun. It is also very good how the behavior of the observers of your exercises is reframed, you will simply never feel stupid again. Indirect and Direct Opening are presented in separate videos, but probably mainly because Indirects are superficially easier. Oh yes: he also puts to rest the age-old idea that you shouldn't apologize during the approach. That was always stupid nonsense. Being alpha does not mean being rude ;) And on it goes: Closing is a part of the game, which often leads to strange pauses in the conversation. Marko shows here completely plausibly, which banal mistakes are behind it. Admittedly, after a few handicapped situations, you'll figure out what you did wrong - but with his video, it's just faster. In the theoretical part, Marko makes it clear what messaging actually is: namely, a slowed-down conversation that can also be used to let the target tell you about themselves and feel good about it. He does not reduce writing to a purely economic clarification towards the lay, as propagated by other coaches, but integrates it into flirtation. Both variants may have their justification, Markos is simply the more pleasant. Dating is outlined with its hurdles succinctly and, in my opinion, quite completely. Personally, however, I would have distributed the contents on four videos and put the logistics in front. Many Beginners are often not clear why it did not work with the Lay - why the date went crappy. Because it was planned like shit, of course. The date process should usually be based on the approach and messaging, but many of Marko's tips are already applicable to instant dates in the street café. In principle, you will be shown how to quickly establish and maintain rapport, i.e. how to increase your attractiveness in the emotional/empathic area, and how to sexualize it in a playful way. Marko explains how you can successfully get through your frames, and find out keys with which you can later specifically evoke emotions. If you're looking for detailed canned conversations for the Comfort, you'll be disappointed, and there's a good reason for that: working through some routines may indeed lead to bed, but often enough it denies you access to the real emotion. And that's a crude malfit that is circumvented here without the video losing any of its content. Because no matter how perfect your logistics are, the date is still something that has to develop spontaneously. While beginners have to slavishly work through the first steps of the approach (which also helps good PUAs sometimes), there are no such clear recipes for the date - not in Comfort and definitely not in Escalate or Lay. Marko's video helps you to improvise and not to force some shit on you that doesn't suit you. The last part of the product is dedicated to the topic "relationship" and probably some ask themselves, what for actually. Many do PU mainly to lay a lot - but quite a few just tell it and would just like to have a dear girlfriend who suits them. But there's another reason why this chapter seems pretty important to me... I don't know who's reading this, but one thing is for sure: there's a bunch of guys in the pick up who have deeper problems than their penis not finding an opening. And one of those problems is that they're just scared of a relationship - of losing their freedom, of being abandoned, of having to be jealous all the time, of being fucked up and taken advantage of, etc. pp. So, aside from the fact that it seems to be Marko's philosophy that a successful PUA should strive for a relationship (about which one may be divided), it is extremely important that the hardcore freaks learn that a steady girlfriend is nothing dangerous. This sounds insanely stupid, but believe me: this mindset is more common than you think. And prevents even the most talented PUer from becoming a PUA. The bottom line is that "Alpha Game" is worthwhile. If there were stars to award here, I'd come up with 9.5 out of 10. This product's videos - while not always professionally realized - not only help beginners get over their first hurdles, but also teach them to address their own weaknesses and undergo a transformation. For advanced players who lay regularly, the product helps them to re-evaluate their own game from the beginning in a quick run-through, because the focus is always on their own mindset and all mainstream behaviors (and by that I also mean PU mainstream!) suddenly lose their value. So for both target groups a huge gain in independence and self-confidence! Who is skeptical because he has experienced Marko from partly years old YouTube clips as a boy who wants to show other boys playing that his way of playing is the best, will quickly realize that "Alpha-Game" has a completely different quality, because he meets a man who helps boys to become a man too.
