I’m Nick, the founder and CEO of Poker Detox. Over the last 15 years I’ve coached over 1000 poker players, including some of the top players in the world. Most people know me from my work as an Elite Coach at RunItOnce.com from 2013-2015, where I started a new movement toward simplified GTO and data-driven strategies.
I founded Poker Detox in 2016 and released several public training products before going private with our current training model: Coaching For Profits (CFP). Our CFP program allows struggling poker players to train with the most powerful data-driven strategies on the market, and earn money with zero financial risk or confusion. All of our CFP players are are provided with financial backing, which allows them to move to high stakes as efficiently as possible.
CFP has been the most rewarding format of poker training that I’ve experienced, particularly because of how well it aligns for both player and coach. It is the only model of poker training available that provides opportunities to struggling players who lack the financial means to invest in their poker education.
At Detox, I’ve built an environment that gives our players a deep sense of belonging and a wide array of opportunities to contribute back to the development of their team. We are a community of loyal friends who have achieved a high level of performance in a game we love. Poker has allowed us to travel all over the world while creating permanent memories together. I’m proud to call many of the CFP alumni my close friends. I’m going to continue riding this wave for as long as possible, and I welcome anyone with the same dream to come be a part of our team.

Gabe Roy is our Chief of Operations. After joining the team as a player back in 2017 and having a very successful start, he began taking initiative to help the company out in his free time. Detox was much smaller back then, with only about ten players under contract and one part time assistant, who was preparing to step down around the same time that Gabe was stepping up. Gabe slid in and was soon promoted to COO during the next company expansion, at which point he took over all ground level operations for the CFP team. Soon after, our players nicknamed him “The Machine” on account of his sickening work ethic, organization, and consistency. Gabe is the glue that holds the company together and it’s difficult to imagine how Detox could operate without him. At present his position as COO now extends well beyond ground level operations and he has truly become a “Jack of all trades” amidst our expansion.
