The U.S. poker coaching firms CardRunners and StoxPoker have combined training library resources to provide what spokesmen describe as the most comprehensive poker training references on the Internet.
Each company boasts a roster of highly experienced instructors, and will continue to operate seperately and focus on specific market areas, sharing the enhanced library resource.
"We're delighted to add breadth and depth to our poker training resources while delivering a decisive competitive advantage to more than 14 000 members," said Taylor Caby, co-founder of CardRunners, explaining that the company concentrates on using a diverse range of instructional videos to improve the advanced player's game, backed by coaching by poker experts such as Brian Townsend, Cole South, Brian Hastings and Caby himself.
Matt Matros, Robert Williamson III, Ed Miller and an additional eleven coaches soon to be announced at StoxPoker focus on the small- and mid-stakes player, using classroom-style training at StoxPoker University, with interactive quizzes, and personal coaching videos, with narration of key hands, decisions and concepts.
"Stoxpoker coaches and customers now have more resources behind them than ever before," said Nick Grudzien for the company. "Our merger with CardRunners will deliver more value to our customers and allow our coaches to spend even more time on what they do best – produce well communicated training content for small and Mid-stakes players in almost all games."
