Your 2020 Poker Resolution Starter Guide

2019 Happy New Year resize.jpg

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 2020?

If you want to start 2020 on the path to improvement, I recommend following this list of Poker Resolutions:

  1. Make sure your Preflop Raises are sized properly to thin the field to just one or two opponents.

  2. Begin using Board Texture to guide 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:

  1. Assign Ranges based on your opponent's seat Position:

    a) study what hands to play preflop when you are the first person to put money into the pot
    b) stay consistent with your raise-sizing
    c) put each player in the hand on a range preflop and then try to narrow it as the action continues

  2. Think about and set Poker Goals by:

    a) reflecting on your past goals and results
    b) setting process and results oriented goals
    c) understanding "why" poker is important to YOU

  3. Practice and Evaluate play to improve faster by:

    a) writing down key details for hands you have trouble with
    b) playing 25 hands a day on the WPT GTO Trainer
    c) setting up a feedback loop using the Hand Input Tool to record and share hands you've played for analysis from LearnWPT Pros

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 build a strong and dynamic game plan for winning No-Limit Texas Hold'em play.

If you want to jump-start your Tournament game, then a LearnWPT Strategy Workshop is for you! Live Training Workshops are the fastest, most comprehensive, and fun way to radically change the way you play poker.

Here's to making winning decisions in 2020!
