With growing anticipation among the BBZ community, we’re thrilled to announce the bundle will be available to purchase for just $99.99 from today (July 8 2021).
“I’m really excited about it coming out and I’m looking forward to seeing how it goes down with people,” Xie tells us on a call earlier this week.
“To be honest, there’s a lot more that goes into creating a bundle than one would think, including myself. Deciding what topics I wanted to cover, what the audience wants to see, then recording it all and finding the perfect structure, it took a long time but I’m glad I got it done.”
Xie’s Cash Game Bundle features detailed sections on:
- Philosophy and Fundamentals
- Preflop Conceptualized
- Understanding Solvers
- Full Spot Breakdowns
- Exclusive Coaching Sessions (ft. Jon “apestyles” Van Fleet, Lex Veldhuis and Parker “tonkaaaa” Talbot)
As you can see, he covers a hell of a lot of ground. The entire bundle consists of 10 hours of high-quality poker coaching.
With so much information included, we wondered if Xie planned it all out on an enormous whiteboard with post-it notes scattered everywhere.
“You could say I did it that way, but it was all digital,” he says. “I planned out everything on the computer and had discussions with friends, editors, and with Jordan. I also talked with [fellow BBZ coach] Bertie “bigstealer” Bayley a lot too as he’s also producing a bundle and we wanted to make sure our separate bundles complement each other and don’t overlap. It was a fun process.
“I think the value of this bundle and other bundles on BBZ Poker is outrageous compared to the price point,” he continues. “Arguably the most important part of my bundle is the fundamentals and philosophy section, which I hope will be incredibly valuable to people.”
Xie admits he spent a lot of time structuring the fundamentals and philosophy section, in particular, to help people who feel overwhelmed at the sheer volume of poker training material available.
“When I first started playing poker, I struggled to find the right information as there’s an ocean of misinformation out there,” he says. “My hope is that this bundle will alleviate that issue for the people who purchase it.
“People think the word fundamentals means something basic, but it’s actually the foundation you need if you’re ever going to arrive at a deep understanding of this game. I hope to present this information in a way that’s easily comprehensible and digestible and leads to many aha moments.”
That’s the fundamentals covered, but what about the philosophy of poker? We ask Xie to summarise his own philosophy for the game.
“That’s a broad question,” he laughs. “It’s all in the bundle. But I will say this: I specifically state that there is a correct way to play this game. That’s a philosophical statement in itself.”
A statement like that could stir up some controversy among players who believe that everyone can play different styles and form their own opinions on the best way to play a hand.
“Yeah, I certainly make myself attackable by saying this so explicitly,” Xie continues. “But I’m so sure that there is a correct way to play this game. I wouldn’t even say that this is a matter of my opinion, there just is one.”
While Xie’s bundle for BBZ is targeted at cash game players, it’s also designed for players of all formats and variants. So whether you’re an aspiring cash player or an experienced MTT or sit & go player looking to boost your bottom line with some cash game grinding, you’ll certainly get a lot of value.
“People make distinctions between MTTs and cash games and PLO and all these things,” Xie says. “I believe that the mechanics are all the same, it’s just there are added nuances to different formats.
“The game of poker has a certain set of rules and parameters that change, and based on these changing parameters, different solutions arise. So I think that’s how I teach the game. If you understand the basic foundation behind the game, you see it for what it actually is and everything that I teach you will be applicable in any kind of situation, including live games.”
