Notes :

Stoxpoker has one of the most well rounded repertoires of poker training videos of any training site. They have the best limit section out of all the sites as well as some great content in their Stoxpoker university videos and power point presentations (Classroom series). Stoxpoker is truly innovating how training sites provide content to its members and PTG expects huge things to continue for Stox.

Ratings :

Cash Games

NLHE – 6 Max Pro : Leatherass, Ed Miller, Stoxtrader Notes :

Stoxpoker is very solid when it comes to NLHE. They have great content for players looking to move up from the small stakes games to mid stakes.

NLHE – Full Ring Pro : Leatherass, Stoxtrader Notes :

This is a neglected area of many of the training sites and Stoxpoker is no exception

NLHE – Headsup Pro : Stoxtrader Notes :

The HU section will suffice for now. It isn’t at the top of the class but Stoxpoker has produced a few solid NL HU videos that will help students learn the game.

LHE – 6 Max Pro : Freedom25 Notes :

The Limit videos are the best in the industry. If you play limit poker you need to join stoxpoker for Bryce “freedom25″ Paradis. He is the best limit player in the world and his videos bring the highest level thinking and mathematics of any site.

Ratings :

Multi Table Tournaments (MTT)

Pro : Action Jeff, Adanthar, MKind16, RandAllin, JSchnett, Tranquil Chaos Notes :

One of the leading tournament players in the world anchor the mtt section and Matt delivers quality videos that appeal to all levels of players. The mtt section has videos of all levels from low stakes to high stakes, and even includes some university content. Key concepts include; Aggression, Bet Sizing, Calculating Odds, Check-raising, Equity, Extracting Value, Hand Ranges, Metagame, Note Taking, Playing AK, Using Information.

Ratings :

Sit-N-Go’s (SNG)

Pro : Collin “sngman101″ Moshman, Matt Matros Notes :

Collin Moshman is a SNG pro who will step up your SNG game with his high quality videos. Colin goes into in depth analysis on difficult concepts that will bring your game leaps and bounds above your competition. Collin is also switching up his videos between LAG and TAG styles to show you how both styles effect your hand to hand decisions, this enables players of all styles to relate to his videos. Key concepts include; low and high blind play, end game, heads up hand ranges, bet sizing, stealing, stealing, re-stealing, and position.

Ratings :

Other Games (Stud, Omaha, Razz, etc.)

Notes :

Robert “Mr Omaha” Williamson III allows Stoxpoker’s Omaha section to take the lead under the “other games” category in the poker training site war. His analysis of hand ranges, pre flop play, pot control makes for very informative videos. Stox has not neglected this area and it shows by the quantity of videos. This is a definite plus as NLHE becomes tougher to beat and players are looking at other games to get their edge.

Weaknesses

The site’s servers have seemed slow over the week that it took to write this review. The website was down a few days but I am sure that they were just performing upgrades to their servers. It’s hard to say too much bad about Stoxpoker as they have a very well rounded site compared to other training sites.

Strengths

Stoxpoker is probably the most well rounded site with top pro’s from every major game that a student would want to learn. PTG feels that they are innovating the way we as consumers receive training content by using the Stox Univerisity and Classroom approach to learning. Those two features combined are really worth the price of admission. They teach the basics in a easy to learn format and really build a solid base to move up limits. The most obvious strength is Stoxpokers’ limit hold’em section. They are by far the superior site when it comes to limit poker so if you play limit you better join Stoxpoker before your competition does! The other major strength is that they are producing more videos on a weekly basis then any other site so your value per video produced is very high compared to other training sites.

Expected Value: Is Stox Poker worth it?

This is one of the most impressive, well rounded training sites out there and will be worth your investment no matter what you play. That really is the beauty of Stox, they made themselves appeal to all players and didn’t really neglect any major category. If you join Stoxpoker you will probably end up learning and crushing a new game because the instruction is so good. Stoxpoker could add a new income stream by playing a new game and PTG thinks that is +EV.
