Train → Play → Think Like a Pro!

Picture yourself as one of 6 remaining players at the Final Table of The End Boss Main Event. How do you protect your 30 Big Blind stack against Darren Elias who is the chip leader with two short stacks in play?

As you train remember to:

  • Play in a way to avoid busting out to the chip leader
  • You will check and call more often than bet or raise
  • You still need some bluffs in your range to prevent the chip leader from exploiting you
  • Almost never lead out from the Big Blind after calling preflop
  • Don’t be afraid to fold marginal hands against big bets that could set up an all-in situation on a future street
  • When facing an aggressive chip leader, you should often trap by check-calling with your big made hands


At The End Boss Final Table Darren Elias minraises from the Button as the chip leader with a 70BB stack and you call from the Big Blind with 30BBs.

Do your best to choose the ideal action at every point. Your goal is to keep "EV Loss" in the green and close to 0.

In Season XIII, Darren Elias won the fourth-largest WPT field in history to date at that time, beating a field of 1,226 entries to win $843,744 in first-place prize money with a prize pool of $3,924,426. Elias defeated Kane Kalas on the final hand of play, etching his name on the Mike Sexton Champion’s Cup for the first time. 🏆 Check out his winner’s interview below and witness the moment The End Boss was officially announced to the poker world. 👇

In a pivotal hand from this tough final table, Elias and Kalas both chased a flush draw. On the river, the two got it all-in on a 2♥️ K♥️ 5♣️ 8♥️10♣️ board, Kalas held 10♥️ 4♥️ but Elias played the hand masterfully and secured a big double up with Q♥️ 6♥️ and pave the way for victory. The massive cooler action at the final table in Season XIII is featured in the video below. 👇
