These individuals have worked side by side over the years, helping each other reach the highest stakes in online poker. They have experienced the benefits of working together in a team. Our coaches have a true passion for the game itself, whether that is technically, mentally or performance related. They love the learning depths that poker has to offer. Instead of grinding away, they decided to continue learning by teaching poker to others.
