A new poker training site is set to transform amateurs to winning players – courtesy of four-time World Series of Poker (WSOP) gold bracelet winner Dominik Nitsche. He isn’t the only poker pro who is venturing into the training market.
Poker pro Jimmy Fricke wants to bridge poker and eSports through a newly-developed training site that will help players reach top status in some of the most popular games in the world today.
Nitsche’s DTO Poker
Dominik Nitsche is among Germany’s most successful poker players, with more than $18 million in live tournament earnings. In addition to that, the 888Poker ambassador also won nearly $5 million from playing online tournaments. His biggest victories include a World Poker Tour Championship title, a Latin American Poker Tour Main Event trophy and the 4 WSOP bracelets.
Nitsche attributes his enormous success in poker to making the right decisions. The high roller is not a fan of superhuman reads; instead, he believes that in order to attain poker success, one must study and practice the game consistently to keep making more right decisions and avoid making the wrong ones. The idea serves as the foundation of his new training site “DTO Poker”.
The German pro made the announcement during an 888Poker After Dark special in which he appeared alongside fellow 888Poker ambassador Chris Moorman as well as poker pros Ali Imsirovic, Jennifer Tully, Phil Hellmuth and Randall Emmett.
From a personal standpoint, Nitsche believes winning in poker is all about the decisions you make at the table, and you can make better decisions if you study and practice hard before a tournament.
Nitsche joins a long list of poker professionals who started their own training sites or released third-party apps to help players improve their game, such as Doug Polk (Upswing Poker), Max Silver (Snapshove), bencb (Raise Your Edge), and just recently Phil Gilfond (Run It Once).
DTO Poker – Your Personal Poker Trainer is already live, though important details are yet to be added.
Jimmy Fricke’s Higher Level Gaming
Jimmy Fricke is keeping himself busy these days with his own eSports training site which is based on the poker training site model. In Higher Level Gaming (HLG), Fricke aims to unlock the gamers’ potential by providing top-notch content and making the world of eSports more accessible to players and fans all over the globe.
Fricke is an accomplished poker pro. He dropped out of college in 2005 to pursue an online poker career. At the age of 19, he began taking part in live tournaments where he captured his biggest wins, including capturing the Bellagio Cup for nearly $500,000 as well as finishing second place to Gus Hansen in the 2007 Aussie Millions Main Event where he took home close to $800,000. The hand-for-hand details of this bout were even featured in Hansen’s book ‘Every Hand Revealed’.
Jimmy Fricke’s live tournaments earnings currently amount to more than $1.6 million.
We’re not seeing much from the Illinois native in the tournament scene these days, and that’s because he is focusing his attention on HLG which just launched on May 1. Working in a similar fashion to poker training sites, Fricke’s newest brainchild teaches players how to better their game to achieve positive results. The 32-year-old also enjoys playing games as much as he enjoys poker, so he felt he was in a unique position to connect the two worlds.
The rise of mobile gaming has enabled eSports fans to conveniently access their favorite games through their smartphones and tablets. Unlike the past when eSports was only available via PC or console, players can now turn to streaming platforms or showcase their skills by joining professional leagues. An estimated 420 million people all over the world watch or take part in some form of eSports.
HLG does not only offer entertainment value, it can also make you a better player. The site gets high-quality content from some of the best players in the world. HLG launched with nearly 80 hours of content, and more videos are pouring in from the site’s contributors and gaming experts regularly.
HLG covers League of Legends, Fortnite, Apex Legends and Overwatch, plus more to come. It comes with a monthly subscription fee starting at just $9.99, though players also have the option to sign up for a free trial and have a trial run.
