Susan was the winner of the recent Freeroll Satellite to the WPT Main Event held following the LearnWPT Live at Venetian Tournament Strategy Workshop in May.

After learning expert strategy from Tony Dunst and Andrew "LuckyChewy" Lichtenberger, Susan put what she learned into use and won her seat into the $4M Gtd WPT Venetian Las Vegas Main Event!

Here’s a recap of that exciting Workshop including Susan’s reaction just after her big win!

Susan has been busy studying using the LearnWPT Membership Features and we know she'll do great. Team LearnWPT will be on site to help cheer her on 👏.

Are You Calling Too Often on The River?

Running deep in a poker tournament with big money on the line requires many tough decisions, especially on the river when the pot is likely the largest. If you aren’t paying attention to how your opponent’s range can change throughout the hand, you’ll likely be in some super tough spots.

Facing tough river decisions is more common in poker tournaments with deep structures and against more skilled players. In many cases, your tournament will come down to how effective your observation skills are and how you use an opponent’s actions to narrow their range.

Watch this Strategy Episode from LearnWPT Instructor and WPT Commentator Tony Dunst as he walks through hands played during a Tournament Series at The Venetian Resort Las Vegas to review some river leaks.

Here are 3 Key Takeaways to help you play better on the river:

  • Avoid leading rivers when you have an opponent's range dominated - checking is likely to induce bluffing
  • Just because you are at the top of your range, it doesn’t mean your opponent has to be bluffing when they raise on the river
  • River raises in multiway pots almost always indicate the nuts - most players do not risk their stack on zero equity bluffs multiway

Can You Fold Pocket Aces Here?

To win poker tournaments you have to make your fair share of big hands and have the skill to get your opponent to put the money in when you have the best of it. However, it's not only about the hands you win... it is often about the times when you choose to throw your two cards into the muck.

Do you have what it takes to fold the best starting hand in poker, deep in the later stages of a high stakes poker tournament?

Sure it sounds crazy to even consider, however if you don’t have the mindset and clarity to recognize even when the best hand in poker is beat and get away with minimal damage to your stack, you won’t be getting heads up for the title often.

So how do you know when to let go of pocket rockets and preserve your stack for a better spot?

Watch and learn as poker legend Andrew “LuckyChewy” Lichtenberger walks you through a key spot late in a $10K buy-in where he had the skill to fold pocket aces on the flop. and breaks down the key factors to his decision.
