Poker Detox / Nick Howard

Hi All,

I am new to this forum and looking to purchase poker coaching products.

I have been looking into Poker Detox as I have watched a few of Nick Howards videos on youtube and his philosophy/approach resonates with me. I have some questions though:

Are the Poker Detox products any good?

Is Nick Howard a winning player? I would think that if you sell elite training products you should at least be a winning player yourself. I quickly sharkscoped his screen name and on pokerstars he is down about $60k.
I can't find any reviews or claims to the effectiveness of his coaching/products except from Nick himself.

I guess my third question is - do you have to be a winning player to coach?

I would love to hear from someone who has used his products to become a moreprofitable player. Thanks.

Re: Poker Detox / Nick Howard

I've seen some of his stuff.

Here would be my synopsis...

a lot of what he says is true, but he uses too many words to convey something simple
all of his products are overpriced (in my opinion)
afaik he is not playing poker anymore seriously as he's doing other stuff -- but that's more a question for him

with regards to the third question it's tougher to answer, but for poker I think it's very important a coach understand the game very well and be able to win if he is coaching the student on how to play the game. Things like how to study/what to study/mental game stuff you don't necessarily need to be a winner to teach/coach someone those things.

i think he's the most overrated/overpriced coach ever. based on friends opinion, his PIO stuff is very good regardless, but you can work on it for yourself.

Re: Poker Detox / Nick Howard

As someone who has spent a year in a stable and had several coaches (never Nick), I would highly recommend his products as I think he offers things others severely lack. Not saying they are worth the four figures he charges (the value in it is different for everybody), but I would definitely be using as much of the free content as possible to start with if I were you, and you can always check out his CFP program.
