Review LogoPokerXFactor is a community-based poker training website developed and run by professional poker players.

PokerXFactor (PXF) was founded by Cliff "JohnnyBax" Josephy and Eric "Sheets" Haber to give poker players of all pursuits – from the casual poker player to the player with a serious passion for the game – a place to learn, share ideas, and develop winning poker strategies.

PokerXFactor Training Videos

The PokerXFactor website offers a wide assortment of learning tools, including a complete training center with a massive database of instructional videos, created by a variety of professional poker players. There are hundreds of training videos, each of which uses the PokerXFactor hand replayer and provides audio commentary from one of the PokerXFactor professionals. This allows you to actually get inside the head of a poker pro, because you hear him/her explain why he/she made every move they did during the session.

Plus, by using the PokerXFactor replayer instead of .mov files, the videos load up and play instantly. Players will learn and improve extremely quickly at PokerXFactor, because the majority of their time will be spent watching tutorials instead of sitting and waiting for videos to load up.

  • PokerXFactor Bankroll Manager - This is a tool that helps players effectively manage their bankroll, so they can resist the temptation of moving up to quickly, and reduce the risk of going broke.
