Introducing the “30 Minutes to Victory” Challenge!

If you’re like most poker players, two things are very likely to be true about you:

  1. You would like to improve your results at the poker table, be it in cash games or tournaments (or both).
  2. You rarely (if ever) put in dedicated time away from the table to improving the way you play.

Notice we said “most”, not “all” poker players. So what about everyone else?

If you’re like most winning professional players and winning students of poker, two things are very likely to be true about you:

  1. You would like to improve your results at the poker table, be it in cash games or tournaments (or both).
  2. You regularly (if only for brief periods of time) put in dedicated time away from the table to improving the way you play.

So what can we learn from this?  All poker players want better results, even the ones who are already winning. But the difference that makes ALL the difference in poker is time spent away from the table to improve your play.

But we’re all busy people, right? In fact, the most common reason poker players give for NOT spending ANY time working on their game is that they just don’t have the time to study! [Note: these players still find the time to play poker, lose, and complain about the results… just not to study the game.]

The key factor that separates most poker players from winning pros or students of the game… small amounts of effort, once or twice a week.¬†With that in mind… LearnWPT would like to challenge you, and all poker players with the following question:

If you had only 30 minutes per week to work on your poker game (away from the table), how would you spend that time to get the best results?

Can you answer that question?

We hope so… because we’re going to give 2 Full Months of membership to LearnWPT to whoever receives the most votes for their answer!

That’s right… YOU pick the winner!

The winner will receive 2 months of:

  • On-demand access to over 150+ in-depth¬†Strategy Episodes
  • Poker questions answered with¬†Ask a Pro
  • Access to the LearnWPT Archive of¬†Poker Hand scenarios to test¬†decision-making skills
