BBZ vs GingePoker, DTO vs Raise Your Edge. This week was every week the place some large names in teaching didn’t maintain again in opposition to each other.
Not way back we have been arguing about whether or not Phil Hellmuth was a superb participant and this week it was the flip of a number of the highest profile coaches within the recreation to duke it out over the energy of their tutelage.
Poker teaching and staking web site BBZ have been scheduled to provide a course on money video games from GGPoker professional Matthew ‘GingePoker’ Shiels however pulled it shortly after it went reside. Shiel’s intuited that his teaching style simplified poker too much for BBZ, whom he believed needed the sport to seem extra sophisticated than it was.
Oh wow he went there – I suppose the gloves are off 🥊

This led to BBZ founder and partypoker professional Jordan Drummond to say the course received pulled as a result of the content material was ‘weak’. So dangerous, actually, that he was ready to pay a good excessive stakes coach to critique the recommendation to show his assertion.
This led to a really public debate round Shiels’s capability as a participant and coach, in addition to accusations about how he has lied about successful seven-figures in Macau to earn more cash as a coach. Eventually each males agreed not to extend the feud any additional, because it was not trying optimistic for both of them, particularly given BBZ went so far as releasing the course earlier than they totally reviewed it.
DTO vs RYE
That wasn’t the one coach-on-coach incident of the final week. Two of German poker’s most revered stars continued fairly a bitter feud final weekend on Twitter.
DTO founder and 888poker professional Dominik Nitsche has been taking photographs at Raise Your Edge founder Benjamin Rolle for a while now and continued to accomplish that over the weekend. He took intention at Rolle’s pricing and the hand ranges he makes use of.

Looking past the identify calling, the crux of Nitsche’s criticism basically comes down to the GTO vs exploitative debate in poker. Raise Your Edge’s ranges are devised and up to date primarily based on participant inhabitants tendencies, whereas the DTO app assessments gamers utilizing GTO accepted arms.
Rolle fired again saying Nitsche had beforehand endorsed Raise Your Edge till he was crucial in regards to the DTO app on a stream.
3 From that time onward he began going in opposition to us, not due to our advertising and marketing as a result of he received offended over my opinion on Twitch. Why did he in any other case all the time spoke positively about us? You could make up your personal thoughts.

Clearly each males have criticisms about each other’s teaching merchandise, however it’s hyperbolic if both of them strive to counsel the other is giving ‘dangerous’ recommendation. Both Dominik Nitsche and Benjamin Rolle have crushed the largest video games in poker for a while and each of their coaching merchandise get wonderful endorsements from very completed gamers.
Poker gamers arguing about who is best at taking part in, or certainly educating, the sport is as previous as the sport itself. However, maybe we’re seeing extra of a ramp up in ‘coach on coach social media violence’ as a result of we at the moment are within the solver period, the place extra definitive solutions may be given on the validity of recommendation. Poker teaching can be a extra aggressive panorama than it has ever been, so it’s maybe pure enterprise rivalries will see tempers flaring.
