Thank you for attending this great event! We hope you enjoyed the LearnWPT poker strategy instruction with Nick Binger at the WPA Warm Up at Commerce.
Here are a few points from this session to remember whenever you are at the tables…
- First-In Strategy:
- Raise or fold, do NOT call
- Your goal is to restrict the number of opponents seeing the flop to 1 or 2 on average
- Find your “standard” raise size for each level.A raise size resulting in 3+ callers is NOT working
- Making Moves:
- Making moves is necessary to becoming a winning player
- Work best against fewer opponents. Rarely bluff in multiway pots
- You must become comfortable with situational poker
- Thinking in Big Blinds:
- Allows you to think about stacks in a consistent way
- Provides a guideline for when to make moves
- Divide Stack by the amount of the Big Blind to get Number of BBs in stack (ex: Blinds 50/100 you have 3400 – 34 Big Bind stack)
- Moves for Different Stack Sizes:
- If it folds around to you with less than 10 BBs in stack, either fold or move all-in. Do not limp or call!
- Reshoving is powerful with 10-20 BB stacks. Ideal stack size for reshoving is around 6x the initial raise amount
- With 30-50 BBs reraising exerts pressure on the raiser and allows you to win uncontested pots. As a default, make it 3x their raise size
- Overcoming your fears:
- Aggression wins in Poker
- Practice making moves! Fear prevents us from accumulating lots of chips and becoming a chip leader
- Enjoy playing the game and you will have a better chance of success
