If you enjoy my content and would like to improve your Daygame, then let's set up some coaching. I am available at short notice for coaching in London and, given enough time in advance, in other cities in the UK (e.g. Manchester, Liverpool, Birmingham, etc.) and in Europe (e.g. Prague, Warsaw, Belgrade, etc.). If you’re … Continue reading 2022 Coaching
It’s the Pride Parade in London this Saturday and I’ll be firmly staying away from Daygame. I asked about this on Twitter and the majority of Londoners agree with my sentiment: The reason I don’t like that day for Daygame is that I think it’s Fool’s Gold, similar to the Notting Hill Carnival and Camden … Continue reading Victory Parades
I recently went to Camden with a wing of mine (the same guy who I went to Clapham with; review link here). In today’s post I’ll let you know whether I recommend it for Daygame. Layout I measured out the route on Google Maps and it’s pretty hefty (disregard the names in the screenshot itself; … Continue reading Camden Daygame Review
I recently came back from Belgrade with Kaiser Daygame and here’s my review of the city. We recorded a podcast on his last day too (link here). Let’s start with the stats. Stats Approaches: 79 Number/Social Media: 23 Dates: 9 Near Misses: 3 Lays: 1 I don’t normally list near misses but on this trip … Continue reading Belgrade Review
Today’s post is a guest lay report by Kevin, a student of mine (previous lay report here). We stay in touch and he sends me quarterly reports of how he’s getting on. If you’re interested in coaching then send me a message here. Otherwise let’s enjoy Kevin’s report! ***** It was 30th March. One day … Continue reading Guest Lay Report: Russian Tango Bang(o)
I got an email from a student called Mr S. He was asking about what to do if a stranger comes into the set and how often it happens to me. Specifically if they are a white knight/cockblocker/virtue signaller/”concerned onlooker.” This is an expanded version of my reply to him (I rattled off an initial … Continue reading Q&A: What Should I Do If A Stranger Comes Into The Set?
It’s been over a month since I left my nine to five (unplugging post, link here). I thought it would be worthwhile recapping what it’s been like. The first thing I had to do was get a routine going. You can’t live in holiday mode forever. That’s something I’ll get onto a bit more later. … Continue reading Unplugging From The Nine to Five-trix: One Month On
Recently I met with a student of mine to catch up in Clapham. As we walked around and chatted I thought about whether it would be good for Daygame. Just to confirm: I’m talking about the high street (i.e. Clapham North Station to Clapham Common Station) and the common itself (for American readers, that’s another … Continue reading Clapham Daygame Review
Today I wanted to write a short post fleshing out a concept I mentioned in a recent Twitter thread on opening: https://twitter.com/thomascrownpua/status/1514170152153075713?s=20&t=wUFZxVBL7oMdTdguiu61mA I thought of this last year while winging with an American Daygamer. This seems to be a particular problem for Americans because their culture is much nicer - on the surface - than … Continue reading Teasing Up and Down (A Particularly American Problem)

What were your "aha" concepts/moments that moved your game from intermediate to advanced? or another way to put it, are there any commonalities you have noticed from coaching people at the intermediate/low intermediate that hold them back? I got that question Rob and there are two parts to my answer. The first is to do … Continue reading Q&A: What Were Your “Aha” Moments That Moved Your Game From Intermediate to Advanced?
