Get to Know Your Coach

Hi, I'm Jon Van Fleet also known as “apestyles” in online poker. I’m 41 years old and live in Portland, Oregon. 
I am here to improve other people's lives by empowering them and helping them become the best poker players they can be.

As a poker player, I have endured trials and tribulations but remained on top for nearly 20 years. Since streaming, the apestyles brand has really taken off. My purpose is to continue to be a dominant force in high-stakes poker and be seen as one of the best MTT players in the world. While dominating high-stakes poker does take a shark, in real life, the apestyles brand is about love and inclusivity. I have a degree in Psychology and have studied counseling/learning more than most poker teachers.




In online poker, I’ve accomplished more than I ever set out to do:

  • WPT Global pro in November, 2023

  • ACR pro in early 2021

  • Partner and coach with BBZ Poker since 2020. 

  • Crushes the highest stakes tournaments online, including the $25,000 buy-ins, since 2006.

  • Co-written three books, “Including Winning Poker Tournaments One Hand at a Time”.

  • Coached thousands of students. 

  • Over $22 million in cashes.

  • Won numerous titles, including: ​

    • 2017 partypoker MILLIONS winner for $1,027,000. 

    • WSOP ring in 2019 in the Super High Roller in Montreal.

    • WCOOP, 888 Super High Roller, and FTOPs.
