3-Bet Defense With The 3x Champ

LearnWPT Instructor Brian Altman

3x World Poker Tour Champion and WPT Player of the Year Brian Altman has spent over a decade refining his skills and training for championship moments. His attacking style and ability to make quick decisions under pressure are key factors to closing out tournaments.

At the core of Brian’s exceptional decision making is his ability to observe opponent tendencies and adjust his play to exploit them and maximize value. Staying present in the moment and identifying these slight deviations in your opponent’s playing style are essential to conquering high stakes tournaments.

Watch this LearnWPT Strategy Episode as Brian breaks down a 3-bet pot with Ace Queen suited from the $3,500 WPT Lucky Hearts Poker Open where opponent info plays a big part.

Brian’s Tips for Defending 3-Bet Pots:

Opponent Tendencies: Is this 3-betting range likely to be wide or narrow? How skilled are they postflop?
Stack Depth: At medium stack depths (around 50-60BBs) it is sometimes better to trap than 4-bet shove
Staying Balanced: Flat with some premium hands (suited combos are often best to defend by calling) in order to balance vs bluffs

Play Ace King Like a Legend

The thrill of looking down at your hole cards to see Ace King is often quickly followed by anxiety.

What raise size should you use preflop? Should you continuation bet if there is no Ace or King on the flop? How much should you bet?

Some players get so frustrated they may resort to only push/fold with AK, even with huge stacks. We’ve all got our horror stories with Ace King, however if you are focusing on the right factors your decisions with Big Slick can be much simpler.

Tune in to this Strategy Episode from LearnWPT Instructor and poker phenom Andrew “LuckyChewy” Lichtenberger for a strategic breakdown of how to approach different flops with Ace King offsuit after you are the preflop raiser.

The next time you're faced with a tough flop decision, use the info from this Episode and you’ll have much less stress with AK.
