WPT GTO Trainer: Get Started

GTO header image v3.png

PLAY - LEARN - IMPROVE
With the WPT GTO Trainer!

There have been many poker “trainers” in the past that allowed you to play poker hands for practice. However, these have been powered by people’s opinions of what is good play and not true Game Theory Optimal (GTO) strategy.

What makes WPT’s GTO Trainer different?

  • The WPT GTO Trainer allows you to play through true Nash equilibrium solutions to various No-Limit Hold'em poker Scenarios (over 1 BILLION individual decisions have already been generated and solved - and counting!)
  • Get instant feedback on the precise EV (Expected Value) Loss of every move you make
  • Rapidly see the mistakes you make compared to GTO Play and the magnitude of those mistakes

OK, TIME TO GET STARTED...

GET THERE

Using the WPT GTO Trainer is fast and easy! Members can click TRAINER in the top navigation bar or mobile menu or by visiting LearnWPT.com/GTO.

GTO Trainer - Dashboard 1 v2 - optmizd.png

1) Select the Specific Spot you want to practice from the available list of Scenarios (ex: MP2 Open vs Button Call).

  • Spots will be either a Cash Game or Tournament Scenario (noted on screen under TRAINING PACKS)
  • Each Scenario will have you training from either In Position or Out of Position (noted in the description of Scenario action)

2) When selecting the Spot to train, take note of the Effective Stack size in big blinds (47.5 BBs) and Pot Size (7.5 BBs) information to consider when making your decision. These factors will remain constant at the start of each new hand based on the specific Scenario you’ve selected.

Here are some additional tips for reading the list of available Scenarios and choosing which spot to train:

  • Your Position and Action (Hero) is always listed first in the Scenario name
  • Cash Game Scenarios use a green table
  • Tournament Scenarios use a blue table

3) The description of Scenario explains the Preflop action.

  • MP2 Open vs Button Call Scenario Example:
    • The Hero (you) are the MP2 player and Open to 2.5 BB preflop
    • The Button player (Villain) calls and everyone else folds
    • Action starts with the flop and 7.5 BB in the pot

4) View the Hand Range Charts per Position for this Scenario.

  • The hand range charts for Hero and Villain show respective ranges going to the flop (after their last preflop action)
  • Percentages listed in specific hand combos indicate the frequency with which those specific hands are in the range
  • Lighter or darker shades of each color also visually indicate the frequency for these hands.
    • The LAST preflop aggressor's hand range is shown in red
    • The preflop caller's hand range is shown in green


Hint:
Select the image of the hand range charts per position (ie MP2 or Button) to expand to a larger view


BEGIN YOUR TRAINING

After selecting the Scenario you wish to train, simply click or tap on the START NEW SESSION button to start Training!

GTO Trainer - Dashboard 2 - optmzd.png


MAKE YOUR DECISIONS

When starting a Session you will instantly be faced with a postflop decision based on the Scenario you chose. In this example we choose the following scenario: Tournament - MP2 Open vs Button Call, 47.5 BB Effective Stack, with 7.5 BBs in the pot.

GTO Replayer action v2 - optmzd.gif

1) You'll immediately be faced with your first decision.

  • Decide on the best action and select the corresponding Fold, Call, Check, Bet, or Raise button
  • Bet sizing options are based on lines recommended by GTO Play
  • Villain’s responses to your decisions are GTO - You’ll often face multiple decisions in a hand

2) After each decision, you'll see the EV Loss and Played % for your action directly on the table.

  • EV (Expected Value) Loss - This shows the number of big blinds you would lose against a GTO player if you took this action
  • Played % - This shows how often a GTO Player would take the same action you took
  • Remember - EV Loss of 0.00 does not mean the GTO Player would take that action 100% of the time (the difference is often attributed to balancing hand ranges and maximizing EV for your overall range)

3) Your goal is to select the action for each individual hand that is as close to 0.00 EV as possible.

  • EV Loss of 0.00 is the same action a GTO Player would take
  • 0.00 EV Loss means you broke even against a GTO Player

GTO Trainer Ideal Action - AutoPlay - optmzd.png


4) The Ideal GTO Action is noted in the top left corner of the screen under the Session Title.

  • A green check-mark next to your action means it is GTO
  • Included is a description of the action a GTO Player would take and how often they would take that specific action
  • When you don't get a green check-mark the Ideal Action and Frequency are displayed so you know the GTO play for each action immediately

NOTE: Multiple actions in a given spot are often "correct" according to GTO Play.

  • GTO Play has many mixed strategies, where plays are made a specific percentage of the time
  • You will often see actions with a very low EV Loss (e.g. -0.01) and a reasonable Played % (e.g. 35%)
    • These actions are not "wrong" and are part of a balanced overall GTO strategy. However, if a play results in high EV Loss (color coded in red), you should avoid that play
  • If the Percentage Played for an action is 1% or less, then that action is rarely taken by a GTO Player and you should avoid that play.
    • If you do take an action that has a Played % of 1% or less, all subsequent decisions will display "N/A" in red, since that entire line should be avoided.

Hint: Toggle the Auto Play button to advance to the next hand decision automatically (green - default) or manually (red).


REVIEW YOUR RESULTS

Click the End Button to complete your Training Session and review your stats on the Session Summary Page.

GTO Trainer End Session Button - optmzd.png


SESSION SUMMARY INFORMATION

You’ve put in the work, now you can start to see where your specific leaks are for each Scenario. Your Session Summary will break down your hand compared to GTO Play.

GTO Trainer - Session Summary - optmzd.png

Reading and Interpreting the Data:

KEY STATS:

1) Overall EV Loss in big blinds Per 100 hands played.

  • Goal is to get as close to 0.00 as you can
  • 0.00 EV Loss is impossible for humans to attain in the long run
  • Do your best and try to get as close as possible
    • Do not be discouraged by a high EV Loss in the beginning. When new to GTO Trainer, it's very common for players to have an EV Loss of -50.00 BBs/100 or more

2) Number of Hands Played in your Session

  • Sample size is important when considering relevant statistics
  • A minimum of 200 hands is the recommended sample size to start seeing stats for your play
  • Schedule a set number of hands each day to practice a specific Scenario and keep track of your progress

GTO Trainer - Key Stats Aggression - optmzd.png

AGGRESSION:

3) This section gives an instant snapshot of the key actions You (shown in Red) are taking across all hands played vs what actions a GTO Player (shown in Blue) would take

  • Don't Worry, if you initially have a huge gap in one direction vs GTO - this is not uncommon


Hint:
Hover over the bar graph to see the number of hands in that session each action was taken by you vs a GTO Player

HAND TYPES:

GTO Trainer - Hand Types - optmzd.png

1) This section compares your play to GTO Play divided by the different categories of hands (i.e. pairs, flushes, trips, etc).

  • Your Action is on the top bar and GTO Play is the bottom bar


Hint:
Green (aggressive action) = Bet or Raise, Yellow (passive action) = Check or Call, Red = Fold. A color key to be implemented shortly!

2) How to read your results - in this example for the PAIR hand category:

  • You chose to either Check or Call 67% of the time and Fold 33% of the time when you had a 1-Pair hand in this given scenario (top line of the bar graph)
  • GTO Strategy is to Bet/Raise 17% of the time, Check/Call 67% of the time, and Fold 17% of the time (bottom line of the bar graph)


3) If the top line results are very different from bottom line results (after a large number of hands played) then you know you are playing those hand types differently than how a GTO Player would play them. These are the spots you want to study first.

Don’t get intimidated by the many stats listed or if there are big differences between your play and GTO Play. Keep training the same Scenario and focus on your biggest leak before you play each Session. Before you know it you’ll be closer to 0.00 EV Loss (and GTO Play!)

HAND BREAKDOWN:

GTO Trainer Hand Breakdown v2 - optmzd.png

1) See all of the hands you've played in a session listed by hand type, position, board summary, and EV Loss.

Hint: Click the REPLAYER button next to a specific hand played to show the action unfold and review for study later.

GTO Trainer - Replayer Button.png

2) Select a specific hand played to see these details:

  • BOARD - Shows the specific rank and suit for each street dealt (flop, turn, river)
  • ACTION - The action Hero (you) chose on that street (bet/raise, call/check, fold)
  • GTO PLAY % - Percentage of time a GTO Player would take a specific action if faced with the same decision
  • EV LOSS - The number of big blinds your action would lose against a GTO player
    • Evaluate EV Loss in Proportion to Pot size
    • An EV Loss of -1.00 is significant in a 6.5 BB pot. It is far less significant in a 100 BB pot
    • The color coding of EV Loss on the Trainer table takes into account pot size


3) Each street of action is broken down with a color coded bar graph noting the specific actions a GTO player would take if faced with the same decision as HERO, including the percentage of time a GTO player would take those specific actions.

GTO Trainer - Color Coded Bar Graph.png

  • In the above example our decision to bet 2.50 on the flop you will see that a GTO Player:
    • Checks 56% of the time
    • Bets small 15% of the time
    • Bets large 28% of the time
    • Green = Bet or Raise, Yellow = Check or Call, Red = Fold

4) In some instances you will see gradient shading (lightest to darkest moving left to right) representing the bet-sizing that a GTO Player would choose in a given spot.

GTO Trainer Hand Breakdown - Shading

  • In the example above:
    • Bet/Raise small amount (lightest green)
    • Bet/Raise larger amount (darker green)
    • Bet/Raise largest amount (darkest green)

REVIEW PREVIOUS SESSIONS

Review any previous Sessions from the main GTO Trainer Dashboard!

GTO Trainer -Review Sessions - optmzd.png

1) Select the Spot you would like to review from the list of available Scenarios.

  • The total number of hands played as well as your total EV Loss overall for the specific Scenario is listed for quick reference


2) Click the REVIEW SESSIONS button.

GTO Trainer - Review Session Select.png


3) Select one of the Sessions you played.

  • Overall EV Loss, Session Date, and Total Hands played are listed for each Session within that specific Scenario
  • For best results and rapid improvement start by studying your largest EV Loss Spots


4) Click the Blue REVIEW SESSIONS button to get the specific statistics for the individual Session within a Scenario You want to review. A session review window will open.

LearnWPT Member Sue Winning WSOP Gold!

Rio WSOP cropped.jpg

Thousands of poker players descended on the Rio in Las Vegas for 6 weeks of action during the 50th World Series of Poker looking to win a prestigious WSOP Bracelet (and some cash too).

LearnWPT Member Susan Faber was one of those players there to win her first WSOP bracelet.

And guess what? SHE DID!

Sue emerged as the victor in the $500 buy-in Salute to Warriors No-Limit Hold’em event* defeating the field of 1,723 entries and earning $121,161 in the process.

Sue, a 71-year-old tax accountant and recreational poker player, was only woman to win an “open” No-Limit Hold'em event this series.

We recently asked Sue about her WSOP experience, her love of the game, and more…


Sue Faber - WSOP Bracelet cropped - optmzd.jpg

LearnWPT: What do you enjoy most about playing poker? How did you get started playing No-Limit Texas Hold’em?

Sue: I started playing poker when my son got me involved in playing on line poker about 10 years ago. I realized I was far behind the other players on the net and started looking for classes I could take to get better. I found that WPT was teaching classes in Las Vegas and traveled there to participate. I took the beginners class and the advance class.

The thing I enjoy the most about playing poker is of course winning but also the social aspect. I have met so many nice people both dealers and people playing the game and have made many good friends.

LearnWPT: Is poker a hobby or do you have more lofty goals for your poker career?

Sue: Poker is a hobby. I would love to play more in live events and plan to do that in 2020.

LearnWPT: Do you play many live tournaments? Why did you pick this specific WSOP event to Play?

Sue: I only play live events now. I picked this event because it was a salute to warriors and I have so much respect and thanks to give to the men and women that serve. My husband also served in the Army.

*According to a report from the WSOP, the funds raised will support the roughly 100,000 U.S. troops and their families. A portion of each buy-in went to the USO. The event raised $43,075 for the charity, which will be used to fund USO projects throughout Southern Nevada.

LearnWPT: How did it make you feel to be playing on the big stage under the lights and on live stream? Were you nervous? How did it feel to have your family and friends there to watch?

Sue: It was definitely an experience of a lifetime it seemed unreal. I was not nervous because I was so concentrated on the game.

I loved having family and friends there to watch and it was an experience of a lifetime for my husband also he was so proud of me.

Sue Faber Pull Quote.png

LearnWPT: How often do you use LearnWPT.com to improve you game? What specific Member Features do you like about the online training site?

Sue: I use LearnWPT weekly to review past episodes or the new ones that are sent to me.

I love the on-line training site because I can go back and review any aspect of the game I want to at any time. The episodes are so timely and involve so many things that I can add to my game.

LearnWPT: Can you name 3 specific skills or techniques from the LearnWPT.com game plan that helped you win this WSOP bracelet? Can you talk about how or why they helped?

Sue: Learning and memorizing the opening hand ranges helps me to know what cards to play in the position I am in and narrowing what cards my opponents have in their positions.

Knowing when a flop is dry or coordinated and continuation betting after the flop. Short Stack play really helped at the final table.

The mental game with Jared Tendler helped me come back from large losses.

LearnWPT: $121,000 for a $500 investment is a pretty amazing payday. Any big plans for the money?

Sue: $10,000 of it will be saved for the main event next year. I would like to go on a cruise and do some remodeling to my home.

LearnWPT: Aside from poker, what else do you do for fun?

Sue: I love to spend time with my two grandchildren.

LearnWPT: Anything else you’d like to add about your experience?

Sue: I am so glad I joined LearnWPT.com which gave me the skills and confidence to win the bracelet at the WSOP this year.


Sue dominated the Final Table and we couldn’t be more proud of her and her accomplishment! You can read more about Sue’s road to victory on the WSOP Updates page or watch the replay on CBS All access.

LearnWPT: Best of River Decisions

Ahhhhh the River…

It’s only one card however it can drastically change the outcome of a hand, not to mention there’s usually a pretty sizable pot at stake.

The world’s best players know how powerful the River can be. They are masters at analyzing key factors, including preflop hand ranges, stack sizes, and how an opponent’s actions through the hand can help figure out what kind of story they are trying to tell us.

They have an arsenal of moves designed to maximize value and cause doubt in an opponent when there are no more outs to come.

Do YOU have trouble making raises, calling big bets, or folding big hands on the River?

Put your decision-making skills to the test against our Pros using the scenarios below and be ready to make the best decision possible the next time you are on the River:

Deliberate application of key concepts at the table and consistent practice of your decision-making skills is essential for success in No-Limit Hold’em.

Remember… Amateurs play, Pros practice!

That’s why we ask that you read these scenarios and keep practicing… even if you don’t always agree with our analysis.

Word of the Day: Community

com·mu·ni·ty noun /kəˈmyo͞onədē/

1. a group of people living in the same place or having a particular characteristic in common.
2. a feeling of fellowship with others, as a result of sharing common attitudes, interests, and goals.

Community-collage-optimzd.jpg

The best players in the game today share ideas and collaborate with their peers within a trusted poker community to improve their play and elevate their game.

How can YOU benefit from being part of a Community of YOUR peers and Instructors?

Well… do you have questions about your poker game like these:

  • What exactly does the term “straddle” mean and is it profitable in your live $1-2 game?
  • After I raised preflop from the SB I wasn’t sure if the best play here was to continue or just check. See my attached HIT hand. Thanks for any input and thoughts…
  • After downloading the first-in hand range charts, does anyone have tips for memorizing the ranges. Does anyone bring them to the tables with them as a guide?
  • After watching Episode #316 today I have a couple questions related to the second hand played where Nick had JJ…
  • Traveling to Vegas … best place for cash live poker 1/2 or 1/3?


These are some of the questions Members are asking and getting advice, feedback, and real strategy help with every day using The LearnWPT Community Forums.

We wanted all LearnWPT Members to have the same sort of positive feedback loop and community the top pros in the game join to better their game.

The LearnWPT Community is a safe place for students of the game to join fellow LearnWPT Members (and our Pros!) to create that loop and:

  • Discuss concepts or issues they are encountering on the path to being a better player
  • Receive feedback from peers on how they played a hand
  • Find answers about strategy and concepts they are unsure of
  • Expand their poker feedback loop to develop a continuous process for improvement
  • Talk all things poker related!

LearnWPT Pros Winning Big!

Instructors Tony Chewy - optmzd.png

Yesterday LearnWPT had not one but TWO Instructors battling it out under the bright PokerGO lights.

Take a look at how LuckyChewy and Tony fared….


LuckyChewy competed for his second WSOP bracelet and an impressive $1.4 million first prize at the World Series of Poker 50K buy-in High Roller.

Chewy started out third in chips against this tough final table line up:

Final Table Line Up:
Seat 1: LuckyChewy – 5,615,000 (47 big blinds)
Seat 2: Nick Petrangelo – 4,100,000 (34 big blinds)
Seat 3: Ben Heath – 7,630,000 (64 big blinds)
Seat 4: Chance Kornuth – 5,000,000 (42 big blinds)
Seat 5: Sam Soverel – 7,540,000 (63 big blinds)
Seat 6: Dmitry Yurasov – 3,660,000 (31 big blinds)

After many creative and interesting plays, Chewy and Ben Heath got heads-up for the bracelet.

Chewy Final Table - optmzd.png

The final hand began with a Button raise from Chewy and Heath three-betting his A♣J♠. Chewy four-bet shoved for 56 big blinds with A♦K♥ and Heath called.

Heath flopped a pair on the J♥5♦3♣ flop to take the lead in the hand. The T♥ turn made things a bit iffy for him, but a blank T♦ on the river guaranteed Heath the bracelet and Chewy walked away with a whopping $917,232 payday and a great start to the summer tournament season!

Tony Dunst competed to add WPT TOC victor to his resume along with a $440K first prize during the Baccarat Crystal WPT Tournament of Champions Final Table at the HyperX eSports Arena.

Tony started 3rd in chips against this group of WPT Champions:

Final Table Line Up:
Seat 1: Simon Lam – 359,000 (45 big blinds)
Seat 2: Nick Schulman – 239,000 (30 big blinds)
Seat 3: Ole Schemion – 1,871,000 (234 big blinds)
Seat 4: Griffin Paul – 308,000 (39 big blinds)
Seat 5: Ryan Tosoc – 549,000 (69 big blinds)
Seat 6: Tony Dunst – 475,000 (59 big blinds)

After a grueling final table, Tony and Ole Schemion were heads-up for the Champions Cup.

Tony TOC final table heads-up - optmizd.jpg

The final hand began with Schemion raising to 60,000 from the Button, Tony 3-betting to 250K, and Schemion calling. Tony checked the T♠J♥K♥ flop and Schemion bets 200,000 and gets called. Tony check-raised all-in on the 4♣ turn, Schemion snap-called.

Tony put himself at at risk with his K♣5♦ hand and was unfortunately drawing dead against Schemion’s flopped straight and flush draw with Q♠9♠. The meaningless T♦ lands on the river and Tony is eliminated in second-place with a $250,265 payday.
