Your 2019 Poker Resolution Starter Guide
It’s that time again to turn the page and look ahead to a brand-new year full of exciting possibilities!
How are you planning on making your poker game better in 2019?
If you want to start 2019 on the path to improvement, I recommend following this list of Poker Resolutions:
- Make sure my Preflop Raises are sized properly to thin the field to just one or two opponents.
- Begin using Board Texture to guide my postflop decisions.
I can’t stress enough how critical it is to apply these two concepts before you start trying to make any other changes to your poker game.
These two ideas are so important that we want all of our Students to have watched them before they even join LearnWPT (which is why we give them to you for free)!
Now, if you're ready to take the next step and you already have those two concepts down, I'd recommend you add these Resolutions:
- Limit my Preflop Calling to situations where I:
a) have a speculative hand
b) will be entering (not creating) a multiway pot
c) can call for less than 5% of the effective stack
- Evaluate my play to improve faster by:
a) creating a journal to keep track of hands
b) writing down key details for hands I have trouble with
c) setting up a feedback loop using the Hand Input Tool to record, save, and share hands you've played for expert analysis from LearnWPT Pros
- Think about and set my Poker Goals by:
a) reflecting on my past goals and results
b) setting process and results oriented goals
c) understanding "why" poker is important to me
If you've already made all of these "starter" resolutions part of your game, then a Membership with LearnWPT will be the easiest and fastest way to start adding more levels of complexity and nuance to your game.
If you want to jump-start your Tournament game, then the LearnWPT 2-Day Strategy Workshop in Los Angeles this February is for you! Live Training Workshops are the fastest, most comprehensive, and fun way to radically change the way you play poker.
