WHO ARE the bitb Academy?

We are delighted to have joined forces with the team at PokerStrategy.com to bring you the bitB Academy. In our previous three years staking players we have turned down thousands of players, hundreds of which had the potential to be a huge success in poker, however, we only had the resources available to manage players for mid-high stakes MTTs. By entering into a partnership with a team of people who we know will maintain the extremely high standards we have set in bitB Global, we’re able to help more players at low-mid stakes realise their potential and become the best versions of themselves they can be.

Patrick, Sam, and Tomi will be involved in the day to day running of the Academy along with the PokerStrategy.com team. Every player in the Academy will be aiming to move up through the stakes in the team, and progress through our tier system so they can join bitB Global’s Main Stable. Any player we take on will have the chance to one day be the very best player in the whole of the bitB operation.

How bitB changed my game

When I first joined bitB I was a slightly winning mid stakes grinder. What the guys have done for me has been unbelievable. The guys have supported me so much, put a lot of time and confidence in me and have been the main reason for my improvement in this time. I could not recommend bitB any higher for someone who is looking to put in the work to jump to the next level.

The coaching is second to none, the community is amazing and very supportive and there is no reason why you would not want to join the team.

I joined bitB because it was a special opportunity to be there from the start when something great was getting launched. I really love to meet other PokerPlayers from different countries and it allowed me to meet people I probably wouldn’t meet otherwise. I didn’t expect there to be so many people, I like that there is also the option to learn in smaller groups.

The guys are killing the coaching all over the place, they are always on point and open to discussions. I have never been in such an environment and if you want to get your game to another level you definitely need to try and join bitB.

bitB have offered me a wide array of opportunities in my three years of being within this stable, I started out in the team playing $30 abi and have grown with the team to now play $100+ abi. But most of all I value their support and mentorship throughout. If it wasn’t for the amount of time and help they’ve offered I don’t believe I would still be playing poker professionally, something I can put no price on.

When I read about bitB two years ago, it was a dream to be part of it. Environment and coachings are just invaluable, working with hungry people who has come all the way as you made me very confident, I started out in tier 8 in bitB, I’m now in tier 2 in the team and I’ll keep working hard to make it the very top.
