The Mechanics of Poker program from Poker Ambition is out!

In general, there is a lack of understanding how Poker really works and how EV is generated.

Number one pain point of Poker players is not understanding the “why”. Why does a solver play a certain strategy? Why does a population have a certain leak? Why does this play actually work?

Majority of Poker content will tell you what to do, however, they forget to tell you why it works, meaning you will miss understanding the principles, the mechanics behind the game.

Additionally, this will result in you not understanding how to adapt to different circumstances, you won’t learn Poker at a deeper level. It all becomes too much for the mind, impossible to memorize and execute consistently at the tables.

You are not alone! We’ve been there, we know how to help you.

In our program “The Mechanics of Poker” we will explain how Poker really works. Due to this way of teaching, this program is for everyone and for every game type: MTT, Cash Games, SnG’s, Live and Online.

No longer will you be stuck, leaving your EV to chance, rather, you will change the way you approach Poker, change your philosophy and your strategy. We will give you a new way of looking at the game by teaching you the mechanics that lead to highest EV strategies.

It is very important for us to highlight this: by teaching you the “why” and “how” of Poker, no longer will you be held hostage to the same strategy that can only be applied for a certain period of time or to a specific game type or in-game situation. This is knowledge applied anywhere and by everyone.

We will teach you to think about the right things in the right order, priority and structure for you to achieve higher EV.

We are Poker Ambition!

We went through the struggles you are going through, we know how to provide what you want.

Furthermore, we also know what you need to take your game to the next level. This program was created with the leading industry experts:

Rene ‘’TheWakko’’ Kuhlman - Technical Headcoach

Rene Kuhlman is a high stakes poker player turned poker coach. It took him 8 years to get to high stakes poker, which makes it easier for him to relate with struggling students. His combination of playing and coaching experience makes him a great person to make poker coaching content.

In the poker ambition CFP program he has helped his students move up from 50-200NL to 1KNL+ (a small group is still active, shot taking 2k+). In the CFP, he has been able to test and further shape his philosophy. He is now committed to spreading this knowledge with the rest of the world, showing how you can get higher levels of poker success.

Adam Carmichael - Mindset & Performance Coach

Adam Carmichael is a former high stakes poker player who now coaches poker players how to reach their full potential. Over the past 3 years he has dedicated his life to working 1-on-1 with hundreds of poker players from 32 different countries, playing all formats from online MTTs to live high stakes cash games.

His hands-on experience, coupled with his degree in Sports Science and his obsession with behavioural psychology, has lead him to discover unique approaches which will turn you into the ultimate peak performer.

Building a bulletproof mindset, optimising all areas of your performance and creating a GTO lifestyle in alignment with your biggest goals are just a few of the things you can expect from working with him.


Teun Mulder - Tinnoemulder
‘’When I first came in contact with Poker Ambition and TheWakko it was just exactly what my game needed. The structured and professional way they view poker helped me a lot to improve my own game. From playing cash games, I was able to transfer the conceptual poker approach and PA philosophy towards MTTs as well. I am certain that everyone who would be joining the program of Poker Ambition would feel the same way.’’

''I started my poker career playing mainly SNG’s and MTTs. Ever since I started to join forces with TheWakko back in 2017, I started to play more Cash games and my performance increased substantially. With Poker Ambition we started to become very good in putting theory into practice. This resulted in climbing up to the highest stakes of online Cash, where I am daily playing games at $50/100 and also from time to time some high stakes MTTs. I can only highly recommend the program Mechanics of Poker, because it teaches you the right things in the right order, to achieve higher EV.''

To make sure that this content is valuable and will bring you the desired EV, we started with high-end coaching for an exclusive group of pros, we’re now opening our proven philosophy to the public.

Check out how we improved our player’s results! We’ve helped all types of players.

1 – Players in love with data:
As soon as they saw the population overfolding to a cbet they would cbet a 100% of their range. They did not look at solvers as that was “not relevant for my game as my opponents don’t play this way”, then when villain didn’t fold and had to make decisions on later streets where they didn’t know the data, they lacked the theoretical background and did not understand the psychological aspect of poker to make good decisions.

They would then come up with all kinds of arguments that were very biased and would lead to cognitive dissonances. By making them understand how poker works from a theoretical perspective and the “correct” way to play a spot, they started to understand why population leaks occurred. They no longer had to memorize all the data as they now understood why the data would show a over/under fold/bluffed spot.

They also came to see that not all hands would be highest EV in a certain line where population would overfold. They were too focused on trying to do something that is +EV instead of striving to make the highest EV decision.

2 – Players who tried to memorize everything the solver does:
We had players who tried to memorize everything the solver does and were randomizing hands (using an RNG or rolling dice) for the sake of randomizing. It had nothing to do with thinking what you want to achieve with your strategy or with your hand in a particular line or sizing.

Due to their approach, trying to memorize instead of understand and check/bet based on a number they rolled instead of a plan for the hand on the next street, they often found themselves overwhelmed and lost in-game due to the amount of nuances and complexity they would encounter.

By starting to teach them why a solver does what it does and showing returning patterns in various situation, they could start predicting how other situations would play instead of having to memorize all the sims. By understanding what a check vs bet achieves they could estimate situations better and see more spots where the decision was clearly better, reducing their need to randomize.

Poker stopped feeling like a grind and they actually started to see how their new way of making decisions let to better outcomes, giving them a bigger sense of control and the feeling that there is less luck in poker than they thought.

3 – Players who were solver wiz-kids:
They would basically explain us how theory worked, but they failed to ask the question, how can I achieve in practice what a solver achieves in theory? They didn’t understand how poker works in the real world (vs human beings). Too worried about making the GTO decision instead of the highest EV decision and not understanding the concepts behind how EV is generated to then translate that to the situation they were in.

By bringing GTO down to a bunch of main concepts and clear objectives while playing a poker hand, they started to see how practical theory works, they were more able to adjust in situations and less paranoid about playing more exploitative poker.

4 – Players who seemed to understand it all:
However, still didn’t achieve the results that would match with their skill level. They would play great from time to time, do everything needed in order to achieve their goals and later on spew it away, fall back in bad habits that were not bringing them closer to their poker goals.

They would be lazy and did not want to deal with the hustle of opening and closing tables, let alone managing more than 2 poker clients so they just hopped in the 500NL zoom pool whenever they felt like playing, no matter the opposition.

We started to analyze their thought processes in spells of good and bad plays, took a closer look at why they started to sabotage themselves when they started to get closer to their goals and took a closer look if their 500NL zoom grind schedule was indeed in line with the goals they had for their poker career.
