Poker Detox’s MTT Coaching For Profits

The most in-depth, scientifically robust coaching program ever designed for MTT players, utilizing data from millions of hands and hundreds of thousands of tournaments

Course summary

Our approach is both radical and revolutionary.

We have engineered our own custom game models, which give us tremendous edges over conventional solvers. These strategies are impossible to replicate by copy and pasting hand histories and following the outputs. We have the most comprehensive archive of GTO solutions, yet we go far, far beyond to show you opportunities to maximize your win-rate more than anyone thought possible. You will become an expert in optimal theory and practice, in the most efficient and straightforward way possible. We have player profiled our strategies. You will learn how to maximally exploit tight recreational players, the most aggressive recs, and the most challenging regs you will eventually face when you progress to the elite high stakes fields.

Mindset strategy

What separates us from the rest is our attention to mindset.

The players who ultimately make it to the very top separate themselves from the rest with their strong mindset and mental resilience. MTTs are tough. You play long sessions, grinding out tournament after tournament with extreme variance, ‘bad beats’ along the way, each and every day. Without being mentally prepared for the path in front of you, invariably you will veer off it. It’s important to realize that this is the very element that gives you the greatest opportunity to crush. Opportunity always lies in areas of life that are the most difficult. With a strong mindset you dominate your competition, including the other regs who fall short in this area. You also achieve far greater volume, and generally feel much better about life. We care greatly about every member of our team and have arranged all the support systems necessary to breed success. Not only that, we organize regular team getaways all over the world so that we can relish life together while offering the highest value coaching opportunities. Succeeding with Detox is not just in poker, it’s a lifestyle choice.
