LearnWPT Poker Hands of the Month – Continuation Betting!

Knowing how and when to C-Bet, Continuation Raise, Float, and Check-Raise are the keys to getting a hold of chips and protecting your stack.

Understanding and mastering strategies such as Continuation Betting, Floating, Protecting C-Bets, and Check-Raising will give you the opportunities to exert skill edge against your opponents.

Practice your Continuation Betting decision-making skills now by reviewing the following collection of Poker Hand examples on how to effectively use the LearnWPT C-Betting strategy.

1. When You Miss the Flop: Missed the Flop in a Multiway Pot
2. C-Bet and Get Check-Raised: T♠T♥ vs a Check-Raise
3. 3-Bet and Get a Single Caller: 6♠6♣ on the Flop
4. Continuation Raising: K♠K♥ vs a Flop Bet
5. Calling in Position vs C-Betting: A♥K♠ vs a Donk Bet

An effective C-Betting strategy that accounts for board texture, number of opponents, stack sizes, and likely hand ranges is an essential tool that separates amateurs from the Pros.

Understanding these critical concepts and how to apply them will put you in a position to take down uncontested pots through aggression, and provide a balanced approach to your postflop game plan.

Keep on practicing!

Join us in Congratulating Tazo and Shirley!

When we created LearnWPT our goal was to help improve the games of poker players who love the game as much as we do.

We’re blown away by all the emails we get from LearnWPT Members! Not only about the success they’ve been having at the poker tables since joining, but also about what poker means to them and how it’s changed their lives.

Unfortunately we don’t have room to post all of them, but here’s some inspiration we got from LearnWPT Members Tazo and Shirley, from Las Vegas, NV:


“My wife, Shirley, and I have more than 150 years combined. I am in my 71st year as a retired entrepreneur and Shirley is in her 81st year as a retired nurse and long-time Vegas resident.

I have dabbled at poker for a number of  years. A few years ago Shirley asked me to teach her. I told her that poker takes a lot of work, and like the piano, not many take it up late in life… she took my casual comment as “fighting words” and immediately responded to the challenge! You need to know, Shirley helped her first husband host small family poker games in their basement more than forty years ago…she did the food and snacks…she never played…only the guys…some notable names…

I had books, some old DVDs,  poker notes from over the years, but nothing coherent and certainly nothing presented in short digestible lessons. That’s when I tried LearnWPT on a weekly then monthly basis and for the last half year, I have subscribed for a year.

The bottom line, playing and learning how to actually have a winning tournament poker “game” at our age has changed our lives dramatically!

We play at lower levels in Vegas, buy-ins in $80 to $250 ranges, but both cash consistently, in 30-35% range, and played 300+ tournaments last year. Since we both have some medical constraints…only occasionally do we attempt deeper stack tournaments. We have done quite well early last year at Binion’s when they had their $10,000 guaranteed for $160 buy-in. In the past few months, while Shirley has been recovering from a knee replacement, I have played deeper stack tournaments a few times a month at The Mirage, Aria, and The Venetian…but again in the $150 to $250 buy-in range.

We find that our elderly ailments and old age pains completely disappear when we are at a poker table focusing on Nick’s fundamental approach to understanding what is going on and how we can exploit situations. Poker definitely keeps our mental game engaged and focused, not only do we love it, but clearly it is extremely healthy!

We thought that since most of your members are younger, you should know that there is a need for two old new revitalized poker players!

Thanks, Tazo and Shirley.”


Congratulations on your poker success, Tazo and Shirley! 👏

As a students of the game, Tazo and Shirley have the LearnWPT mindset that a little bit of studying away from the table, done consistently over time, will put you on the path to success. And more importantly…they are having fun doing it!

LearnWPT can do the same for you and your poker game!

Your 2018 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 2018?

If you want to start 2018 on the path to improvement, I recommend following this list of Poker Resolutions:

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

2. 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 a more advanced player and you already have those two concepts down, I’d recommend you add these Resolutions:

3. 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

4. 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! LearnWPT Live Training Workshops are the fastest, most comprehensive, and fun way to radically change the way you play poker.

So what are YOUR Poker Resolutions?

Post your answers in the comments below because it helps to write your resolutions down… and you may help another player realize what they need to be focusing on!

Here’s to making winning decisions in 2018!
