    Crushing Turbo MTTs and MTTSNGs by ILS007

    This course is the most in-depth deconstruction of the turbo MTT/MTTSNG formats ever produced, and has just been created by the author to be of highest relevance to the games of today.

    In addition to the 20 videos, you will receive a comprehensive download package detailing Earlygame Defending Ranges, Earlygame Opening Ranges, Equity Charts and Heads-Up Charts that are the next evolution of poker. These elite charts are far superior to the charts that most top pros are currently using and are only available in this course.

    The course covers all game areas in detail, and provides students with a precise methodology for self improvement upon completion. In this way, it is intended to allow students to continuously improve their game, and to take advantage of the private forum for course members, where they can ask Ivan strategy questions.

    There are too many topics covered to mention (and many are listed in the video descriptions below), but key areas covered include: all earlygame opening and defending ranges, constructing mixed ranges in the middlegame and beyond, maximally exploiting the table at all times based on the player profiles and table dynamics, and how to precisely calculate and evaluate chip EV and ICM $EV decisions.

    Ivan goes beyond the conventional recommendations, sharing his decade of experience up to the highest stakes in matters concerning optimal ICM play and adjustments. After watching the series, you will see late game and final table play in a new light!

    ILS007 Poker Bio...

    - Started playing poker professionally aged 18, in 2007.

    - Achieved Supernova Elite on PokerStars twice, the second time doing so the 6th fastest in the world (3.5 months). Came 3rd for $82,000 in a WCOOP event later that same year.

    - Coached a number of students to Supernova Elite, and to the top of the global leaderboards for a number of SNG formats.

    - Then, with PokerStars removing their Supernova Elite program, shifted focus towards MTTs. In 2016 a private team of ten students won $600,000 combined.

    - Students have also featured in live tournaments, making deep runs in EPTs, final tabled a high roller event and also appeared on poker TV shows.

    ILS007's Testimonials...

    Ivan has consistently pushed boundaries from both the theoretical and exploitative side of the game. He was one of the biggest winners in 6max hypers at the highest stakes which requires extremely solid theoretical knowledge and having lived with him I’ve seen first-hand his students destroy multi table tournaments where adaptability and exploitation prevails more. Ivan has always been at or near the top of any field he’s put his mind to. As a former chess player his desire to strategize and solve is unparalleled with anyone I know.

    - Bigstealer: Former Multi-Time Supernova Elite and current Zoom $500 Reg

    Both Ivan and I have dominated the high-stakes turbo/hyper turbo single-table SNGs.
    Ivan started as a student of mine playing up to $500 sng on both stars and FTP, and then afterwards as a coaching partner. Given the results we had together and the strategy that was learned and taught, I can assure you what Ivan coaches is of the very highest quality around. Furthermore, Ivan has excellent tilt control, bankroll management and planning for grinding schedule, all of which are extremely important in maintaining a high hourly rate in poker.
    Ivan is a personable and easy going guy who conducts his coaching in a professional manner. I can recommend this site and Ivan's coaching packages as a great value opportunity not to be missed. He goes out of his way to give you every chance of succeeding.

    - Leoc00, #1 hyper turbo single-table SNG player in the world 2010

    I worked with Ivan for the last 2 years and he turned me from a 6$ sng recreational player to Supernova Elite status playing up to 500$ SNGs.
    What can be said about his coaching skills other than they are absolutely amazing, he touches every aspect of the game (technical, mental, BR management, game selecting) and actually cares about your poker success.
    As long as you are willing to apply his insight to your game, you will see really fast improvements and your winrate will be higher than you ever imagined.
    I just cant recommend Ivan highly enough to be honest, for me he's #1 coach in the world!

    - jtdstreet, Supernova Elite 2011

    Ivan took me from a low stakes recreational player to full time grinder within the space of 6 months, completely transforming my game in the process.
    His coaching methods are simple yet when put into practice are extremely effective. He's a very approachable guy and easy to talk to, which allows him to get his point accross in a way thats easy for you to understand.
    To anyone considering getting coaching look no further, I can't recommend Ivan highly enough. His knowledge and understanding of the game is exceptional.

    - BigTunna99, former #1 18-man SNG player in the world

    Ivan has certainly provided an outstanding strategic influence on my game as a whole. Not only in terms of playing decisions, but in the sense of a grinding mindset too. His insights and experience in the online poker world are invaluable. He always has an answer to any question asked, and is both patient and flexible as a coach.

    - MCC2005

    Ivan has always been a great friend - we met in the World Chess Championship, back in 2004 and stayed in touch since then. It's funny, because I used to give him chess lessons on 2005-06, and when I was having trouble with my SnG game in the end of 2009, I knew I needed to look for help. I knew how dedicated and serious he was about the game, so I thought it could be nice to get some coaching sessions with him. And the result couldn't have been better, I continued on to have great results in Dec/2009 and Jan/2010 (something like $2 per game on a 3,6k game sample) , but eventually I had to put some efforts on my professional chess career and ended up grinding a little less on the following months.
    His help was decisive on getting my confidence back on track, as well as noticing some considerable mistakes I was showing during my sessions. I was able to understand the game better and also adjust my mindset properly for the game.

    - Krikor Sevag Mekhitarian aka Trade06, International Chess Grandmaster

    Ivan is a very good coach and he always take time to anwser your questions.

    Really worth the money.
