Are You Ready To Advance Your Game?

Workshop Curriculum

ADVANCED PREFLOP PLAY

Preflop mistakes appear small in the moment, however they are most often the cause of losing critical pots. Your Instructors will provide you with the tools to counter aggressive preflop tournament players with precision using GTO based ranges.

You'll learn strategies such as:

  • Defense Strategy
  • Open Shoving
  • Reshoving
  • Calling All-Ins
  • 3-Betting
  • 4-Betting


Winning uncontested pots preflop is a vital tool for successful tournament players. These strategies give you new creative ways to gain chips and put pressure on your opponents. During the Lab Session your Instructors will help you put these concepts into play in real-time.

 

ADVANCED POSTFLOP PLAY

Understanding key factors that influence proper betting lines, sizing, and how often you should be betting postflop is essential to advanced play. Elite Tournament players weigh these factors on a continuum to consistently make better decisions.

You'll learn strategies such as:

  • Backdoor Equity
  • Attacking Capped Ranges
  • Recognizing Flop Heuristics
  • Range vs Range Interaction
  • Range Composition
  • Equity and Nut Advantage
  • Stack to Pot Ratio (SPR) 
  • Relative Hand Strength
  • Bet Sizing Considerations


Add nuance to your postflop decision tree and open up new possibilities for creative lines. Transform from a fit or fold player to a fearsome opponent. During the Lab Session your Instructors will give expert insights for making adjustments during simulated hands.

TOURNAMENT MINDSET AND STRUCTURE

Elite tournament poker players place a premium on maintaining the correct mindset that creates the optimal conditions for peak performance. They approach tournament poker through a process of continuous improvement that allows clear strategic thinking even in the most high pressure situations, focused and clear to note the key inflection points and make specific adjustments for each stage from preflop through heads up play. 

You'll learn concepts such as:

  • Overall Tournament Philosophy
  • Tournament Buy-in Guidelines
  • Approach to Reentry Tournaments
  • Considerations for Each Stage
  • Adjustments for Short Handed Play
  • Key Stack Size Inflection Points
  • Playing to Win vs Min Cash


Explore the strategies that will keep your opponents on edge and put tough players to challenging decisions postflop during the Interactive Lab Session.

BUBBLE PLAY STRATEGY

The difference between limping into the money and arriving at the final table with a stack that can compete for the title is often determined by your skill and strategy on the bubble. In this section you’ll learn how to adjust your hand ranges and put pressure on the right opponents on the bubble to maintain and grow your stack for a deep run.  

You'll learn strategies such as:

  • Bubble Play
  • Independent Chip Model (ICM)
  • Identifying Bubble Situations
  • Monitoring Stacks and Other Tables
  • Maximizing Fold Equity
  • Identifying Players to Target
  • Playing the Bubble Depending on Your Stack Size


Understanding when to deviate from default strategy can make the difference between a min-cash and a final table. This highly interactive session will focus you on the subtle differences that are obvious signals advanced players use to crush tournaments.

FINAL TABLE PLAY

When the majority of the prize pool and the prestige of winning a title is on the line, you need a specific game plan for the unique situations of Final Table Play. In this session we’ll provide a framework for Final Table and Heads Up play including detailed GTO based hand range charts.

You'll learn strategies such as:

  • Analyzing Pay Jumps and Structures
  • Maximizing Fold Equity as Chipleader
  • Adjusting First-In Ranges for ICM
  • Laddering vs Chip Accumulation
  • Essentials of Heads-Up Play
  • Mitigating/Maximizing Skill Edges
  • Open-Limping Strategies
  • Stack Size Adjustments
  • Exploiting Leaks


Practicing these advanced Final Table strategies will give you the confidence and piece of mind to play for the win when it matters the most

Q&A AND WRAP-UP
