Tournament Mastery Workshop Schedule
DAY 1 - SESSION 1:
10:00AM - 11:15AM

ADVANCED FIRST-IN STRATEGY

Specificity is essential to expert decision-making. In this session we will take a deep dive into preflop range construction and detail how to adjust first-in ranges based on each position at the table. 

  • Position
  • Tournament First-In Ranges from every Position
  • Adjusting Ranges based on Tournament Factors

We’ll provide you detailed charts with recommended ranges from all seat positions and provide key factors to consider when making range adjustments based on opponents in real-time.

DAY 1 - SESSION 2:
11:30AM - 1:00PM

RESPONDING TO AGGRESSION

You’ve likely heard the saying “fight fire with fire”, however it’s not always prudent to play back at an aggressive opponent by betting or raising.  In this section we make sure your energy is directed appropriately and give you concrete methodology to quickly decide the best course of action.

  • Big Blind Defense
  • Button Defense
  • 3-Bet Defense
  • Calling All-Ins
  • Response Charts

We’ll also break down the difference between Linear and Polarized 3-Betting and provide you with hand range charts and decision trees that will guide you to a specific course of action to profitably combat your opponent.

DAY 1 - SESSION 3:
1:00PM - 2:00PM

HEAD TO THE BUFFET AT BELLAGIO FOR LUNCH

DAY 1 - SESSION 4:
2:00PM - 3:30PM

PREFLOP SITUATIONAL AWARENESS

Masters of Tournament Poker do not sit around and wait for good cards. They are constantly looking for spots to put pressure on opponents and accumulate chips without showing down a hand.

  • Range Gap and Fold Equity
  • Exploitative Play (moving beyond the charts)
  • Stealing and Restealing 
  • Reshoving and Overbet Reshoving
  • 3-Betting and 4-Betting
  • Open-Shoving
  • Ideal Effective Stack Sizes
  • ICM and Bubble Play

In this session we will go deep into the nuance of move-making in tournaments, and introduce you to exploitative methods that will increase your chip stack and have you consistently run deep with a playable stack. 

DAY 1 - SESSION 5:
3:45PM - 5:00PM

ADVANCED PREFLOP DECISION POINTS

It’s time to test your knowledge and reinforce the new pieces of your game plan. We’ll go through a series of simulation hands specifically designed to focus on the new preflop concepts you learned. 

  • Challenging scenarios with short response times to simulate real game play
  • In-depth feedback from the Pros, each sharing their unique approach
  • Creating a winning practice habit by focusing on decision, not results

During this session you’ll get to use your new perspective to make decisions under pressure. The LearnWPT Pros will provide feedback on your thought process and guide you in recognizing the key factors essential to enhancing your game.

DAY 1 - SESSION 6:
5:15PM - 6:00PM

QUESTIONS... MEET ANSWERS

Now is your chance to clarify the Preflop gameplan you just learned. The key to growth in No-Limit Hold’em is to never stop learning. Start your cycle of constant improvement during this session and ask questions while also listening to the questions from fellow students.  

  • Clarify new concepts you've learned
  • Find exceptions to the "rules"
  • Ensure you've correctly integrated what you've learned
  • Not sure of a new strategy? Your Instructors are here to help

Pay close attention during this session, you never know when the answer to someone else’s strategy question can lead to your “A-Ha moment”!

DAY 2 - SESSION 1:
10:00AM - 11:15AM

ADVANCED FLOP ANALYSIS

To the casual observer (or even some regular players) most hands of No-Limit Texas Hold’Em appear simple to discern. A player raises, gets a few callers, then bets the flop and takes it down. In this session we’ll prove just how incorrect this assumption is and alter your perceptions of what specific flop textures mean in concert with positional ranges and opponent actions.  

  • Range vs Range Interactions
  • Equity and Nut Advantage
  • Range Composition
  • Flop Structures
  • Key Flop Questions
  • Stack to Pot Ratio (SPR) and Relative Hand Strength
  • Range Drilling

During this session your Instructors will teach you to read between the lines and use preflop ranges and opponent tendencies to determine your hard and soft equity on a variety of flops.

DAY 2 - SESSION 2:
11:30AM - 1:00PM

NAVIGATING POSTFLOP PLAY

Postflop play is where the most challenging decisions are made in a No-Limit Hold’em Tournament. Building on solid preflop foundations is essential to an unexploitable strategy, and during this session that’s just what we’ll do. Utilizing your new knowledge of preflop strategies we’ll provide you an expanded tool kit of tactics to account for the wide variety of players you are likely to face in any given tournament.

  • C-Betting Against Tough Players
  • Advanced C-Bet Sizing
  • Bluffing Frequency
  • Exploiting Nut Advantage
  • Attacking Capped Ranges
  • Overbetting
  • Check-Calling and Check-Raising from BB
  • Checking to 3-Bettors
  • Calling and Raising C-Bets in Position
  • Taking Stabs
  • Showdown Considerations

The LearnWPT Pros will provide key factors for adjusting your default strategy based on opponent tendencies and show you how to combat tough opponents, all while remaining  balanced in your approach to postflop play.

DAY 2 - SESSION 3:
1:00PM - 2:00PM

DAY 2 - SESSION 4:
2:00PM - 3:15PM

HEADS-UP PLAY

We’ve tackled preflop and postflop play, now it’s time to dive into the strategies that could mean the difference between being someone who just ran deep, and a Champion!  Heads-up play presents several unique challenges and is often played under severe pressure after a long day (or several days of play).

  • Essentials of Heads-Up Play
  • Mitigating/Maximizing Skill Edges
  • First-In Ranges
  • Open-Limping Strategies
  • Stack Size Adjustments
  • Exploiting Leaks
  • Postflop Strategy

During this session we’ll provide concrete guidelines for approaching heads-up play and give you the tools necessary to make adjustments based on opponent tendencies and skill level.

DAY 2 - SESSION 5:
3:30PM - 4:45PM

ADVANCED POSTFLOP DECISION POINTS

It’s time to test your knowledge and reinforce the new pieces of your game plan. We’ll go through a series of simulation hands specifically designed to focus on the new postflop concepts you learned. You’ll get to use your new perspective to make decisions under pressure.

  • Challenging scenarios with short response times to simulate real game play
  • In-depth feedback from the Pros, each sharing their unique approach
  • Creating a winning practice habit by focusing on decision, not results

There's no better way to practice Tournament decision-making than to do so in real-time, under pressure (you'll have a short time-limit for each decision), with Pro players there to review and improve your thought process after each one.

DAY 2 - SESSION 6:
5:00PM - 6:00PM
