The Definitive System for Crushing NL Heads-up in 2012 



AppleBerry is one of those coaches who has the rare combination of crushing the games and being able to convey complex thoughts using simple words.

He manages to maintain an unheard of winrate of 10bb/100+ playing heads-up no-limit. He has won over $50,000+ playing on PokerStars, 888, and Full Tilt Poker. 

Not only that, he has coached over 120+ students with many great success stories.

Here's a graph from one of his students, Longhaul Truckr, who ended up winning $10,000/month at small-stakes heads-up NL.

Here is what his other students have to say about him:


Poker player Neorask: “One of the best investments i've ever put into poker.”

2p2er learnfriend: “I tried to play HU(100bb) a few times by myself, and lost on a 200$/hour rate.. total losing is about 1600$. I even bought a HU video series, but it didn't help my game. Finally, I decide to take a lesson with Max. On our fisrt sweat session, I win 64$, it means that it is a free lesson... and after that session I make 500$ by playing NL50 HU with a winrate 15bb/100 only playing vs reg. It's amazing. Now I have confidence in myself being a HU reg oneday.”

Poker dryver279: “I have had one lesson with Max so far, the early strategy and game selection techniques that he provided me helped me win 3 1/2 buy ins in the hour he worked with me. I have already bought 10 more hours with him and can not wait to learn more.” 

In this critically acclaimed video series, AppleBerry holds nothing back and reveals all the secrets and information that enable him to achieve one of the highest winrates in 100NL.

I have been playing poker for a long time, but recently made a transition from 6 max to heads up. I feel in a time where so much information is available on NLHE strategy, it is difficult for a micro and small stakes player to sift through all the confusing info out there. This video series is very good at showing players old and new what is needed to beat the HU games at these stakes, without confusing them with unnecessary info or superfluous plays which often end up losing us money. It outlines a system that can easily be adopted to immediately beat the game if adhered to. But that is not to say that Appleberry is spoonfeeding a step by step guide, he begins with a basis for beating the average players and then goes on to help players think about what adjustments need to be made for specific players. Some of the videos are fairly short but I preferred this than to being overloaded with information and then none of it going in. You do get quite a few videos in this series and there is a heap of information in them. Well worth the price!

I have also had some lessons from Appleberry - he is a great coach and I would highly recommend him to anyone serious about improving their heads up game. He's really flexible and focuses on improving your thought process so you grow and are better equipped to tackle any new situations you are confronted with on your own.

In short: Great video series, great teacher, great price!
