WPT GTO Trainer: Small Stakes Cash Play

You've said Game Theory Optimal play is difficult to apply to your small stakes $1-2 and $2-5 games.

We listened and we are now making it easy for you to practice, play, and drill hands using the WPT GTO Trainer.

Introducing the brand-new WPT GTO Trainer Small Stakes cash game scenarios to prepare you to dominate the games you play in!

  • How do you respond to aggressive players in your game?
  • Are you betting large enough to fold opponents out of a hand?
  • Have trouble with opponents who seem to call every preflop raise, no matter what the size?

Now you have a tool to drill the spots that occur most often in low stakes games and dramatically improve your play through practice.

We've also made it easier for you to customize the WPT GTO Trainer to change how you get instant feedback on your play while training!

Click the SHOW STATS % button and switch between specific EV Loss and % Played Percentage Stats for each action to a simplified response that indicates if the action you chose is correct or not recommended.

This feature is perfect for players who are just starting to study Game Theory Optimal Strategy.

WPT GTO Trainer: Get Started

GTO Header - optmzd.png

PLAY - LEARN - IMPROVE
With the WPT GTO Trainer!

There have been many poker “trainers” in the past that allowed you to play poker hands for practice. However, these have been powered by people’s opinions of what is good play and not true Game Theory Optimal (GTO) strategy.

What makes WPT’s GTO Trainer different?

  • The WPT GTO Trainer allows you to play through true Nash equilibrium solutions to various No-Limit Hold'em poker Scenarios (over 4 BILLION solved spots and counting!)
  • Get instant feedback on the precise EV (Expected Value) Loss of every move you make
  • Rapidly plug leaks and learn the GTO strategies that have dominated the highest stakes games in the world

OK, time to get started...


TRAINING ON A MOBILE DEVICE?

To play the WPT GTO Trainer without the need for screen adjustment between hands, simply add LearnWPT.com as a shortcut to your iOS and Android mobile device.

Trainer - Mobile - Seamlessly - Android Chrome.png

Click below for a few simple steps to train optimally using the GTO Trainer from a mobile device:


GET THERE

Using the WPT GTO Trainer is fast and easy! Members can click TRAINER in the top navigation bar or mobile menu.

Navigation Bar - Trainer Highlighted.png


GET STARTED

Members must be logged in to your LearnWPT.com Membership to start Training.

GTO Dashboard - Filter and Game Type-resized.png

1) Select the Specific Spot you want to train from the available list of Scenarios (ex: MP2 Open vs Button Call).

  • Spots will be either a Cash Game or Tournament Scenario (labeled as Cash, MTT, FT-Final Table, or SMALL - Small Stakes)
  • Click the drop down box to select what game type or strategy you would like to train
  • Note: You can select multiple options in the drop down menu to narrow your search

2) When selecting the Spot to train, take note of the Effective Stack size in Big Blinds and Pot Size information to consider when making your decision (see image below for example). These factors will remain constant at the start of each new hand based on the specific Scenario you’ve selected.

Here are some additional tips for choosing which spot to train:

  • Your Position and Action (Hero) is always listed first in the Scenario name
  • Each Scenario will have you training from either In Position or Out of Position (noted in the description of Scenario action)
    • Cash Game Scenarios use a green table
    • Tournament Scenarios use a blue table
    • Final Table Scenarios use a purple table
    • Small Stakes Scenarios use an orange table

GTO - Dashboard Training Pack -  New Logo.png

3) The description of Scenario explains the Preflop action.

  • Example - MP2 Open vs Button Call Scenario:
    • The Hero (you) are the MP2 player and Open to 2.5 BB preflop
    • The Button player (Villain) calls and everyone else folds
    • Action starts with the flop and 7.5 BB in the pot

4) View the Hand Range Charts per Position for this Scenario.

  • The hand range charts for Hero and Villain show respective ranges going to the flop (after their last preflop action)
  • Percentages listed in specific hand combos indicate the frequency with which those specific hands are in the range
  • Lighter or darker shades of each color also visually indicate the frequency for these hands.
    • The LAST preflop aggressor's hand range is shown in red
    • The preflop caller's hand range is shown in green


Hint:
Select the image of the hand range charts per position (ie MP2 or Button) to expand to a larger view


BEGIN YOUR TRAINING

After selecting the Scenario you wish to train, simply click or tap on the START NEW SESSION button to start!

GTO - New Session - New Logo.png


MAKE YOUR DECISIONS

Click START NEW SESSION and you will instantly be faced with a postflop decision based on the Scenario you chose after.

GTO Trainer - Show Stats Button - optmzd.png

1) Customize the WPT GTO Trainer to change how you get instant feedback on your play while training!

  • Click the SHOW STATS % button and switch between specific EV Loss and % Played Percentage Stats for each action (green) to a simplified response that indicates if the action you chose is correct or not recommended (orange).
  • This feature is perfect for players who are just starting to study Game Theory Optimal Strategy

2) You'll immediately be faced with your first decision.

  • Choose Fold, Call, Check, Bet, or Raise by clicking the button
  • Bet sizing options are those commonly recommended by GTO Play
  • Villain’s responses to your decisions are GTO - you’ll often face multiple decisions in a hand

3) After each decision, you'll see the EV Loss and Played % for your action directly on the table.

  • EV (Expected Value) Loss - This shows the number of big blinds you would lose against a GTO player if you took this action
  • Played % - This shows how often a GTO Player would take the same action you took

Remember - EV Loss of 0.00 does not mean the GTO Player would take that action 100% of the time (the difference is due balancing hand ranges through mixed strategies and maximizing EV for your overall range)

Trainer - All Streets - optmzd.gif

4) Your goal is to select the action for each individual hand that is as close to 0.00 EV as possible.

  • EV Loss of 0.00 is the same action a GTO Player would take
  • 0.00 EV Loss means you broke even against a GTO Player

5) The Ideal GTO Action is noted in the top center of the table.

  • A green check-mark next to your action means it is GTO
  • Next is the action a GTO Player would take and how often they would take that specific action
  • Ideal Action and Frequency are displayed so you know the GTO play for each action immediately

GTO Ideal Action and Freq Played - optmzd.png


6) Multiple actions in a given spot are often "correct" according to GTO Play.

  • GTO Play has many mixed strategies, where plays are made a specific percentage of the time
  • You will often see actions with a very low EV Loss (e.g. -0.01) and a reasonable Played % (e.g. 35%)
    • These actions are not "wrong" and are part of a balanced overall GTO strategy.
    • However, if a play results in high EV Loss (color coded in red), you should generally avoid that play unless you have compelling exploitative reasons to make it against a specific opponent

GTO Percentage Played - optmzd.png

  • If the Percentage Played for an action is 1% or less, then that action is rarely taken by a GTO Player and you should generally avoid that play
    • If you do take an action with a Played % of 1% or less, all subsequent decisions will display "N/A" in red, since that entire line should be avoided.


EV Loss Color Coding Hint:
Green = Near GTO Play, Orange = Take Caution, Red = Probable Leak in Your Game


HINTS AND TIPS

GTO Hints and Tips - optmzd.png

  • Toggle the AUTO ADVANCE button to advance to the next hand decision automatically (green - default) or manually (red)
  • Click the FULL SCREEN button for a large view
  • Review these instructions anytime by clicking the HOW TO PLAY button
  • Toggle the SHOW STATS% button switch between specific EV Loss and % Played Percentage Stats for each action (green) to a simplified response that indicates if the action you chose is correct or not recommended (orange)
  • Click the EXIT SESSION button to complete your Training Session and review your stats on the Session Summary Page

Trainer Hand Range charts icon v2 - resized (1).png

  • View the hand ranges during a session by clicking the green ℹ️ information icon button to review the charts during play
  • The hand range charts are labeled by position name

Trainer Hand Range charts - resized (1).png


View the charts when facing a difficult spot and examine the possible hand combinations to help train your decisions closer to 0.0 EV Loss.


SESSION SUMMARY INFORMATION

You’ve put in the work, now you can start to see where your specific leaks are for each Scenario. Your Session Summary will break down your hand compared to GTO Play.

GTO Trainer - Session Summary Dashboard.png

Reading and Interpreting the Data:

KEY STATS:

1) Overall EV Loss in big blinds Per 100 hands played.

  • Goal is to get as close to 0.00 as you can
  • 0.00 EV Loss is impossible for humans to attain in the long run
  • Do your best and focus on strategic spots giving you the most trouble
    • Do not be discouraged by a high EV Loss in the beginning. When new to GTO Trainer, it's very common for players to have an EV Loss of -50.00 BBs/100 or more

2) Number of Hands Played in your Session

  • Sample size is important when considering relevant statistics
  • A minimum of 200 hands is the recommended sample size to start seeing stats for your play
  • Schedule a set number of hands each day to practice a specific Scenario and keep track of your progress

GTO - Aggression Key Stats -  New Logo.png

AGGRESSION:

3) AGGRESSION gives an instant snapshot of the key actions You (shown in Red) are taking across all hands played vs what actions a GTO Player (shown in Blue) would take

  • Don't Worry, if you initially have a huge gap in one direction vs GTO - this is not uncommon


Hint:
Hover over the bar graph to see the number of hands in that session each action was taken by you vs a GTO Player

HAND TYPES:

GTO - Types of Hands - New Logo.png

1) HAND TYPES compare your play to GTO Play divided by the different categories of hands (i.e. pairs, flushes, trips, etc).

  • Your Action is on the top bar and GTO Play is the bottom bar


Hint:
Green (aggressive action) = Bet or Raise, Yellow (passive action) = Check or Call, Red = Fold. A color key to be implemented shortly!

2) How to read your results - in this example from the dashboard image for the PAIR hand category shown above:

  • You chose to either Check or Call 67% of the time and Fold 33% of the time when you had a 1-Pair hand in this given scenario (top line of the bar graph)
  • GTO Strategy is to Bet/Raise 17% of the time, Check/Call 67% of the time, and Fold 17% of the time (bottom line of the bar graph)


3) If the top line results are very different from bottom line results (after a large number of hands played) then you know you are playing those hand types differently than how a GTO Player would play them. These are the spots you want to study first.

Don’t get intimidated by the many stats listed or if there are big differences between your play and GTO Play. Keep training the same Scenario and focus on your biggest leak before you play each Session. Before you know it you’ll be closer to 0.00 EV Loss (and GTO Play!).

HAND BREAKDOWN:

GTO Hand Breakdown 11-12.png

1) HAND BREAKDOWN displays all of the hands you've played in a session listed by hand type, position, board summary, and EV Loss.

  • Click the REPLAYER button next to a specific hand played to show the action unfold and review for study later
  • Have questions about that hand? After replaying the hand click the ASK A PRO button to send your hand the LearnWPT Pros for analysis using the Ask a Pro Feature

GTO Trainer - Replayer Button.png

2) Select a specific hand played to see these details:

  • BOARD - Shows the specific rank and suit for each street dealt (flop, turn, river)
  • ACTION - The action Hero (you) chose on that street (bet/raise, call/check, fold)
  • GTO PLAY % - Percentage of time a GTO Player would take a specific action if faced with the same decision
  • EV LOSS - The number of big blinds your action would lose against a GTO player
    • Evaluate EV Loss in Proportion to Pot size
    • An EV Loss of -1.00 is significant in a 6.5 BB pot. It is far less significant in a 100 BB pot
    • The color coding of EV Loss on the Trainer table takes into account pot size

3) Each street of action is broken down with a color coded bar graph noting the specific actions a GTO player would take if faced with the same decision as HERO, including the percentage of time a GTO player would take those specific actions.

GTO Trainer - Color Coded Bar Graph.png

  • In the above example our decision to bet 2.50 on the flop you will see that a GTO Player:
    • Checks 56% of the time
    • Bets small 15% of the time
    • Bets large 28% of the time
    • Green = Bet or Raise, Yellow = Check or Call, Red = Fold

4) In some instances you will see gradient shading (lightest to darkest moving left to right) representing the bet-sizing that a GTO Player would choose in a given spot.

GTO Trainer Hand Breakdown - Shading 11-12.png

  • In the example above:
    • Bet/Raise small amount (lightest green)
    • Bet/Raise larger amount (darker green)
    • Bet/Raise largest amount (darkest green)

REVIEW PREVIOUS SESSIONS

Review any previous Sessions from the main GTO Trainer Dashboard!

GTO Trainer - Session Review - New Logo.png

2) Click the REVIEW SESSIONS button.

3) Select a Session you played from the list.

  • Overall EV Loss, Session Date, and Total Hands played are listed for each Session within that specific Scenario

Does Studying Really Help Your Game? (Just Ask Tony...)

Tony TOC final table heads-up - optmizd.jpg


Making a commitment to study poker seems silly to some people.

The next time you hear this all too familiar refrain, show them to this tweet from LearnWPT Instructor Tony Dunst...


There’s no denying Tony’s resume as a world-class player. His achievements include a WPT title and WSOP bracelet, and he’s certainly seen just about every approach to success in poker during his 15 years in the game.

Community-collage-optimzd.jpg

The best players in the game today share ideas and collaborate with their peers within a trusted poker community to improve their play and elevate their game.

How can YOU benefit from being part of a Community of YOUR peers and Instructors?

Well… do you have questions about your poker game like these:

  • What exactly does the term “straddle” mean and is it profitable in your live $1-2 game?
  • After I raised preflop from the SB I wasn’t sure if the best play here was to continue or just check. See my attached HIT hand. Thanks for any input and thoughts…
  • After downloading the first-in hand range charts, does anyone have tips for memorizing the ranges. Does anyone bring them to the tables with them as a guide?
  • After watching Episode #316 today I have a couple questions related to the second hand played where Nick had JJ…
  • Traveling to Vegas … best place for cash live poker 1/2 or 1/3?


These are some of the questions Members are asking and getting advice, feedback, and real strategy help with every day using The LearnWPT Community Forums.

We wanted all LearnWPT Members to have the same sort of positive feedback loop and community the top pros in the game join to better their game.

The LearnWPT Community is a safe place for students of the game to join fellow LearnWPT Members (and our Pros!) to create that loop and:

  • Discuss concepts or issues they are encountering on the path to being a better player
  • Receive feedback from peers on how they played a hand
  • Find answers about strategy and concepts they are unsure of
  • Expand their poker feedback loop to develop a continuous process for improvement
  • Talk all things poker related!

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 a 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 and Amount of Ante, Number of Players, then click the NEXT button
  3. Follow the onscreen prompts to record the hand information and street action
  4. Use these shortcuts when entering hole card information for quicker recording:
    • Type the first letter or number of the card value and suit versus clicking each option to select your card
      • Example: type "a" + "c" to select the A♣ or type "2" + "d" to select the 2♦
    • Use the +/- keys to increase/decrease values or click your cursor into the field box and manually type the value

Helpful Hint: Click the EXIT SESSION → button 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

Helpful Hint: Use the Sort By button to select HIT on the Ask a Pro page to review 500+ already answered submitted hands


HIT Helpful Hints:

Our goal is to make HIT an easy to use and personal experience. Be sure to share with us any suggestions.

Did you know you can:

  1. Update the name of a hand by clicking the NL Cash or NL Tourney fields in the top center of the screen
  2. 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
  3. Replay, edit, or delete hands you've saved from your HAND LIBRARY by clicking the thumbnail image or vertical ellipsis
  4. Use these shortcuts while reviewing the replay of a hand for quicker navigation:
    • Pause/Restart Action = Space Bar
    • Show Hole Cards = "H" Key
    • Move Action Forward/Backward = Right/Left Arrow Keys
    • Toggle Stacks Between Big Blinds/Chips = "B" Key
    • Toggle Between Player and Position Names = "A" Key

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!

We know that one of the most challenging aspects of improving your poker game is the feeling of being alone on your journey and not having a team (or better yet a community) to support your poker goals.

That’s why we created the brand-new LearnWPT Community!

Now you can join fellow LearnWPT Members in discussion about all things poker by using the community forums to talk Cash and Tournament concepts, or just about anything poker related in the General Discussion forum.

P.S. The LearnWPT Pros will be popping in regularly to join in a discussion!

Some Pointers and Guidelines:

  • Create or respond to a post: Select the appropriate Forum (currently cash, tournament, or general discussion – more to come!) and click the NEW TOPIC button.

  • Community username: To change your Community username (which is the same as your Ask a Pro username) visit the My Account Page. Click the change username & hometown link under Basic Info and save.

  • Upload an avatar image: To create a profile avatar click either your name in a post or by the VIEW MY POSTS link to visit your Community Profile. Click the EDIT PROFILE button and upload an image!

  • Interested in comments for a specific post? Click the green SUBSCRIBE button when viewing the post. Click Subscriptions on the main page to quickly find and view those saved topics.

We Want Your Feedback!

We’re excited to hear your feedback or if you encounter any bugs so please make sure you share it with us by contacting [email protected] or by clicking the red NEED HELP? button to let us know how we can improve the Forums.
