Exclusive Access: C-Betting Against Tough Opponents

[UPDATE: This LearnWPT Strategy Episode is no longer available for free to non-members]

We hope you enjoyed this special access to a full Strategy Episode from LearnWPT! Strategy Episodes like this are included as part of a Membership to LearnWPT.com.


Thousands of poker players from every corner of the world are ready to descend on Las Vegas to test their skills and chase the fame (and cash) that comes with winning a high profile event.

Like many of these poker players, you’re happily counting down the days to the summer tournament season and preparing for glory. You’ve got your backpack, headphones, comfortable sweatshirt, and a few buy-ins to go along with all your dreams of success on the felt.

Your dream of being a champion begins…

EP294-optimizd.gif


You sit down in your 1st event and you are dealt A♥K♥ in late position(yes!).

You raise and get one caller. The flop is a dry T♦6♠2♣ and you fire out a continuation bet.

Your opponent wastes little time and puts in a continuation raise. You fold.

A few hands later, it’s the same story…. raise first-in with a premium hand, c-bet, get floated. Turn card is no help, you have to check fold.

Sound more like a nightmare? It doesn’t have to be.

That’s why we’re giving you this exclusive access to a full LearnWPT Strategy Episode where LearnWPT Lead Instructor, Nick Binger outlines the adjustments you need to make when C-betting against Tough Opponents.

This is your opportunity to plug a leak in your game and to chase away those fears that may keep you up at night.

You’ll be back to sweet dreams of becoming a champion in no time!

Good luck and good playing!

HOW CAN LEARNWPT HELP YOUR GAME?

Logo-Stacked black on white cropped.jpg

When we created LearnWPT.com our goal was to provide a place that empowers players to ask questions, help get them focused, and provide a solid game-plan to bring to the table every time they sit down.

Some of the ways we accomplish this is by:

  • Teaching and presenting examples of proven, winning concepts through our Strategy Episodes (short 10-15 minute instructional videos)
  • Providing a place where Members can send questions to receive answers and guidance with the Ask a Pro feature and LearnWPT Community Forums
  • Giving Members the ability to record, save, and send real hands they’ve played to receive expert analysis of their play using the Hand Input Tool

Not a Member? Click below to join (just $5 your first month) and start improving your game today.

Are You Using The Hand Input Tool?

If yes, THANK YOU and congratulations on taking another step in improving your game!

If no, let's change that today!

So, what exactly is HIT?

The Hand Input Tool (HIT), is the newest LearnWPT feature that allows Members to capture, replay, and share real hands they've played and receive analysis and feedback from friends, other members, and LearnWPT Pros.

See below for info, hints, and the benefits of this powerful feature:

Getting Started:

Hit - Getting Started-reszd.png


Login and access HIT from the top navigation bar or via the mobile menu. For more instructions watch the "Show Me How it Works" video on the HIT Dashboard or review Episode 226: Hand Input Tool (HIT).

Recording your hand:

  1. To begin, click the red ENTER A HAND NOW BUTTON.
  2. Select Cash or Tournament and enter the Blinds Amount, Type of Ante, Number of Players, then click the NEXT button.
  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to record the hand information and street action.

  • Helpful Hint: Click the STOP icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen to stop the hand at a specific point for analysis before getting to showdown

Receiving Feedback:

Hit - Ask a Pro-reszd.png


Members can submit their recorded HIT hands to Nick Binger and the LearnWPT Pros for analysis of their play and get answers to questions about a specific move or strategy using the Ask a Pro Feature.

Sending your hand in for feedback:

  1. Once finished recording your hand, the action will replay and a pop-up will appear noting options for your hand.
  2. Click the ASK A PRO button to submit your hand for analysis.
  3. Enter a title, your question or comment, and click the SEND YOUR QUESTION button.
  4. That's it! The LearnWPT Pros will provide feedback shortly.


HIT Helpful Hints:

HIT - Notes-reszd.png


Personalize your saved hands and notes! Our goal is to make HIT an easy to use and personal experience. We'll send helpful hints each month so be sure to share with us any suggestions.

Did you know you can:

  1. Replay, edit, or delete hands you've saved from your HAND LIBRARY by clicking the thumbnail image and vertical ellipsis.
  2. Update the name of a hand by clicking the NL Cash or NL Tourney fields in the top left corner of the screen.
  3. Take notes for each session by clicking the notepad with pencil icon in the top right corner of the screen. Enter personal notes (they will remain private) about the session and click SAVE NOTES.
  4. Change the name/nickname of a player and their chip stack by clicking their position tile. Update the PLAYER NAME and CHIP STACK fields then click the NEXT button.

Giving Feedback:

HIT - Feedback 1.jpg


At LearnWPT we are always looking for ways to improve your poker education experience. We created HIT to give Members a tool that will help take their game to the next level and we need your input.

Tell us what you think:

  1. Do you have any suggestions to make HIT better? Many of the improvements we implement come from Member suggestions!
  2. Please take a few minutes to tell us what you think by sending us an email or filling out this survey: Member Feedback
  3. If you encounter any bugs or have questions about how to use the Hand Input Tool let please us know.

  • Helpful Hint: Click the blue Feedback & Bug Reports button in the right hand corner of a HIT recording if you experience issues

The habit of recording hands you've played followed by analysis (and feedback) creates a positive feedback loop for improvement which allows you to find (and fix) leaks faster, while learning to make better decisions at the table.

We are exited to provide this invaluable tool for our Members to help create that loop and to provide them with guidance and helpful feedback.

Thanks for being a part of LearnWPT!

LearnWPT Exclusive Access: Improve Your Worst Decisions with Jared Tendler

ep266-optimzd.jpg

[UPDATE: This LearnWPT Strategy Episode is no longer available for free to non-members]

We hope you enjoyed this special access to a full Strategy Episode from LearnWPT!

Strategy Episodes like this are included as part of a Membership to LearnWPT.com. Monthly and Yearly Members of LearnWPT receive new Episodes monthly!


What do elite athletes like Dwayne Johnson, Lebron James, and Tom Brady have in common?

They relish the work.

They find success through process, not procrastination. They create an environment for constant improvement, and surround themselves with the resources and tools necessary to achieve goals.

This allows them to focus on the task at hand and actually have fun doing the "work"

If you find the idea of "doing the work" overwhelming, it's likely because you don't have a plan for improvement, or you don't even now what specific part of your game needs to be improved.

Now, we aren't suggesting you wake up at 4:00 AM and hit the gym everyday (unless you want to!), but you need to create a dependable cycle for continuous improvement.

That's where we can help!

Get started right now by watching the Strategy Episode from LearnWPT Mental Game Coach Jared Tendler about Improving Your Worst Decisions and discover a repeatable process for confronting and correcting your mistakes away from the table (just like the pros do!) so you don't make them when it really counts.

FYI... this exclusive access was available to non-members of LearnWPT for a limited time, through April 1st.

We've made the plan, so it's time for you to Do the Work!

We'll see you online!

Creating a Winning Habit

We know, you want it all now….

The calendar has just turned over and it’s gonna be your year, no matter what it takes. You’re committed to making the changes that will transform your game and your life.

  • Effortless decision-making
  • A dynamic game-plan that accounts for all the situations you’ll face at the table
  • A calm and unshakable mental game
  • And maybe even to shed a few pounds from the holidays :-) 🍗

But we both know that in order to make a real change it takes small pieces of consistent effort over time.

We see it each January... everyone rushes to join the local gym in attempt to affect change immediately. You can barely find a parking space, let alone an open treadmill or weight machine.

Fast forward to March 1st.... you can pick any machine and park a Winnebago with ease! Everyone who made the big commitment to exercise and make a change is gone (and they are most likely still paying for that gym membership!).

So how can YOU avoid the January rush and the March drop-off in your game? Simple, commit to a cycle of constant improvement.

It’s a fact that new habits take time to form, a little over 2 months on average (p.s. 2 months of LearnWPT will cost you only $34!).

Not sure how to do that for your poker game? Here are some suggestions to get started today:


First-In-Hand-Ranges-EP-MP-LP-2-300x169.png


Choose one section of your game that you want to improve
such as preflop play, and commit to memorizing hand ranges by position. Pick a hand range to try and memorize for 15 min a day then move on to the next range.


EP75-optimized-300x169.jpg

Commit to work on your Mental Game. Write down exactly what you are feeling and thinking when you make a strategic mistake. Review your notes before each session to inject logic and avoid the risk of future blow-ups.


download-1-300x168.png


Schedule time on your calendar
to study by watching Strategy Episodes on LearnWPT.com. Block out 15 mins twice a week with no distractions and watch an episode to reinforce a strategy or to start learning a new concept.


EP226-v3-resized-300x169.png


Record 1 hand from each session you play
. Pick the hands that make you uncomfortable and write down the critical details. Use a tool like HIT to capture the hand and share with your peers, coach, or the LearnWPT Pros.


Winning players train consistently to change bad habits and sharpen decision-making.

Let LearnWPT help you build the same consistency, one day at a time!

That’s what we’re here for.

When you upgrade to a Monthly or Yearly Member you'll gain access to our on-demand library of 350+ No Limit Hold'em strategy videos!

Do you know what it means to call profitably?

​​Do you know when a situation becomes profitable based on Pot Odds?

Understanding Pot Odds and basic poker math is key to determining your hand’s equity and is essential to making profitable decisions.

That's why we are giving exclusive access to a full LearnWPT Strategy Episode where LearnWPT Lead Instructor, Nick Binger helps take the anxiety out of poker math and simplifies calculating Pot Odds for practical use at the table!

Practicing these calculations away from the table will elevate your No Limit Hold'em play and allow for better decision-making in real time at the table.

This video is part of our Concept Strategy Episode series where we present key poker concepts that are the fundamentals of the game. These Episodes represent key content we think ALL members should have as part of their game.

Let’s talk about poker goals…

Smart Goals-optmzd.jpg

But these won't be just ANY poker goals. Today we are talking about S.M.A.R.T. goals.

What are S.M.A.R.T. goals?

S.M.A.R.T. goals are:

Specific: Instead of saying, "I'm going to start winning at poker", one could say, "I'm going to plug leaks in my cash game spending 30 minutes a week watching LearnWPT Strategy Episodes and reviewing notes I take to make sure I am applying what I learn at the table."

Measurable: Progress must be trackable. Setting concrete milestones for assessing your progress allows you to adjust based on your results. Not sure how you are doing? Ask our LearnWPT Pros along the way for their advice using the Ask a Pro or Hand Input Tool feature.

Attainable: Maybe you want to become a WPT Champion, but you haven't yet won a WPT event. Better to start with something like: "Grow my poker bankroll to $_____ where I can comfortably play in a WPT Tournament" or "Attend a LearnWPT Live Workshop for interactive professional training".

Relevant: This means that the goal fits into your real life situation, skills, and desires. An irrelevant poker goal to set would be to play poker only on days that start with the letter "T". 😉

Time-Bound: This means your goal has a "when" associated with it. That could mean, "I'll play every Saturday for the next 4 weeks", or it could mean, "I'll join LearnWPT and review a strategy video every other day for 30 days". As long as you account for time, your on your way to setting a SMART goal!

So right now... try articulating your SMART poker goal. Say it out loud to yourself, write it down, and keep it somewhere visible!

One post-it note with a SMART goal in it in the right place can work WONDERS for your motivation!!

Much success,
LearnWPT
