Poker Detox Elite

Course summary

Our program is a tailored, streamlined path to beating high stakes and nosebleed 6-max no-limit holdem cash games.

You’ll gain access to simplified game theory optimal protocols developed specifically for Detox Elite using proprietary solver data aggregation software, advanced database reviews for leakfinding, a complete exploitative map of the game tree discovered with mass database analysis, and 1-on-1 attention from our Elite coaches.

Program strategy

Our goal is to give you every resource you need to beat the toughest games online, without overloading you with needless complexity.

Rather than coach from the ground up, our program begins with advanced database reviews to find out exactly where your biggest leaks are. We’ll tell you where you’re missing opportunities to exploit your pool, and where you’re incorrectly deviating from GTO, so that you know exactly what to study.

As a member of Detox Elite, you’ll gain access to a network of like-minded poker players who are focused on high performance. We’ll also help you uncover mindset leaks and limiting beliefs with 1-on-1 mindset coaching.

1-on-1 Coaching Philosophy

We believe that most private coaching sessions waste the student’s time by meeting up to review mixed strategy spots and checking them against PIO Solver. Our approach focuses on guiding the student to transform their game quickly with top notch strategy documents, while individual coaching cements those upgrades in place through constant reinforcement over an extended period of time.

That’s why Matt Marinelli’s approach to coaching includes daily support in Discord for everyday questions that come from hand histories, and also monthly database reviews to ensure you’re staying on the right path. Success for our students will come from this attention to detail in the micro guided by big picture habits uncovered in each session with Matt.

Each student will receive one database review with Matt per month for twelve months alongside daily Discord support.

The Network

Building a trusted, high power network is one of the most difficult things for a poker player to do. The goal of ‘The Network’ is to offer financial & community benefits to our high performing graduate players beyond their tenure.

Is our program right for you?

  • If you LOVE poker and you are serious about applying yourself to the game using a scientific method
  • You’re currently doing well in poker, but you have ambitions to crush even higher stakes
  • If you crave the support and positive influence of an elite community
  • You understand that to be truly successful in poker, your approach needs to be fundamentally different from the average poker player

Yes it is

  • If you’re in this for short-term monetary results and you already spend most of your time thinking about moving onto other ventures after poker
  • If beating low/mid stakes is “good enough” for you
  • If you are not interested realizing your full potential as a poker player
  • You prefer to study the same way the rest of the poker community is studying, because it’s more comfortable

sorry, we’re not for you
