11:45AM - 1:00PM

LINEAR VS POLARIZED 3-BETTING

Knowing how and when to 3-Bet is one of the best ways to get ahold of chips in a cash game. Here we’ll show you how to use Linear and Polarized 3-Betting Ranges to gain advantages on your opponents.

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

NON-SPECULATIVE PREFLOP CALLING

It can be hard enough to learn how to call profitably with Speculative Hands using the 5% rule, but there are other situations in which calling can become a viable play. Learn when you can “violate” these rules using specific tactics:

  • Calling with Non-Speculative hands as part of Polarized 3-Betting strategy
  • Pot Odds and Realizing Equity
  • Continuing Postflop with 1-Pair as the Preflop Caller
  • The Necessity of Floating

One of the most common leaks amateurs struggle with is calling too frequently, without a real plan to win the hand. This session will teach you to incorporate more calling into your game, balanced with aggression, to become a more fearsome opponent.

DAY 1 - SESSION 5:
3:45PM - 5:15PM

ADVANCED PREFLOP DECISION POINTS

You can be sure you’ve learned something when you can do it under pressure. We’ll present you with a series of Simulation Hands, challenging you to apply your knowledge of Polarized and a Linear Ranges to realistic situations you will face at the poker table. You’ll then get Pro Insights into these same situations and see what (if anything) you missed.

  • You’ll be put to the test with difficult decisions you’ll face at the table
  • Diagnose issues in your preflop game and get corrections in real-time
  • Get feedback and valuable insights into the Pros decision-making process
  • Discover the critical factors to making these difficult decisions in dynamic situations

You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of how to apply the LearnWPT game plan in real-world poker situations. There's no better way to practice decision-making than to do so in real-time under the guidance of the LearnWPT Pros.

ADVANCED POSTFLOP PLAY
