Program strategy

Our goal has been to develop a poker system that is as simple and easy to learn as possible while simultaneously capturing the maximum amount of EV.

Most players believe these are competing goals. They think in order to win at poker, you have to have a complex strategy. We know this to be false, and have the results to prove it.

People make poker much more complicated than it needs to be.

You don’t need a complicated strategy to win. In fact, years of research has shown us that complex strategies are more likely to lose you money for a couple of reasons…

First, complicated strategies are impractical. As soon as you are under some type of performance stress, you’ll forget what you’re supposed to do and revert to your natural tendencies. For most people that means playing in a risk-averse way, and we all know what happens to scared money.

Our course is built using data research from ~200 million hands. This has given us extraordinary insight into dozens of pool imbalances and how to massively exploit these tendencies.

Simply put, our method crushes.

Pierre 2KNL

I joined the team in March 2019, I was playing 25NL and breaking even. This was my rock bottom. I was at university studying things I didn’t like, I had no perspective, and my future was looking dead. I didn’t believe in my ability to make poker my career. I was stuck and therefore depressed. Luckily I found Nick’s YouTube channel. His thoughts and vision were unique and from his discourse emanated a blatant, harsh desire of reaching ultimate truth. I felt like if there was a place in poker where I belonged, it was within this community. So I decided to give poker one more shot .

This quickly became the best decision I ever made. I am now playing 10/20, having made tens of thousands of dollars, and joined the best poker community in the world. I’ve established connections with amazing humans and most of all I gained self-trust by learning how to know and accept myself through my poker journey. I couldn’t have done it without the immense support and all of the tools that Poker Detox has given me.

After years of being stuck in the same paradigm, I finally found the direction I’ve been looking for. Parallel to the invaluable technical content, the mindset is treated with the same care. When you add a team of serious people, with open minds willing to help you, Poker Detox is an absolute gem in the world of poker.

Still unsure?

Check out this audio clip from a player who recently joined our team. If you can relate to him, you’re in the right place.

How much time should I expect to devote to this course?
You should be prepared to dedicate a minimum of 25-30 hours per week to study and play. It’s preferable for students to have sufficient savings or a part time job for life expense stability. I do not recommend trying to balance this course with a demanding full-time job.

No. Only your commitment and dedication.
