Our philosophy

Poker Ambition was founded back in 2019 by high stakes professionals TheWakko and Xplode7777. For over two years we provided high-end coaching services to a very exclusive group of professional poker players. Now, we want to make our proven philosophy available to anyone who has the ambition to grow and excel as poker professional.

We provide you not only what you want, but also what you need to excel as poker professional. That is our promise to you. We take care of the following principles:
  • All concepts explained
  • Focus on why
  • Clear learning-path
  • Complete package (with technical, mental game & performance, mindset and soft skills)
  • Proven success

TheWakko

Ever since TheWakko, Xplode7777 and Pokerkluka started working together closely, their careers have skyrocketed. Together, they formed Poker Ambition. After achieving the desired success in their own poker careers, they decided to help other players through the coaching program. During this period of two years, they learned so much more about teaching poker, and what it takes to succeed. This resulted in TheWakko going into ‘TheLab’ and dedicated all his time to figure out what poker success comes down to. He transformed that into a philosophy, which he will be teaching you in the technical part of this program, as he has already done to so many of our  students. Watch his full poker story here!
