Advanced Cash Game Workshop Schedule
DAY 1 - SESSION 1:
10:00AM - 11:15AM

ESSENTIALS OF THE SYSTEM

In this section we'll make sure we have the Essentials down before diving into the Advanced Material. We’ll make sure you know our structured methodology for determining when to call, raise, or fold when your opponent bets.

  • How to View Position in NL Hold’em
  • Raising First Into the Pot
  • First-In Hand Ranges
  • Speculative Calling Criteria
  • Preflop Calling Decision Tree
  • Linear 3-Betting Strategy
  • Thinking in Hand Ranges
  • Linear Preflop Decision Tree

We’ll use the Essentials to interpret opponent actions based on their position and likely hand range to determine a profitable course of action.

DAY 1 - SESSION 2:
11:30AM - 1:00PM

NON-SPECULATIVE PREFLOP CALLING

It can be hard enough to learn how to call profitably with Speculative Hands using the 5% rule, but there are other situations in which calling can become a viable play. Learn when you can “violate” these rules using specific tactics:

  • Calling with Non-Speculative Hands
  • Raw Equity and Pot Odds
  • Realizing Equity
  • Button Defense
  • Big Blind Defense
  • 3-Bet Defense
  • Relative Hand Strength

One of the most common leaks amateurs struggle with is calling too frequently, without a real plan to win the hand. This session will teach you to incorporate more calling into your game, balanced with aggression, to become a more fearsome opponent.

DAY 1 - SESSION 3:
2:00PM - 3:30PM

LINEAR, POLARIZED, AND MIXED 3-BETTING

Knowing how and when to 3-Bet is one of the best ways to get ahold of chips in a cash game. Here we’ll show you how to use Linear and Polarized 3-Betting Ranges to gain advantages on your opponents.

  • Constructing Polarized Preflop 3-Betting Ranges
  • Polarized Preflop Decision Tree
  • Mixed Strategies
  • Randomizing Your Play
  • Adjusting to Real World Opponents - Picking Strategies

Your toughest opponents will often give you the most trouble Preflop. Here you’ll learn to become the player who gives everyone else trouble.

DAY 1 - SESSION 4:
3:45PM - 5:15PM

ADVANCED PREFLOP DECISION POINTS

It’s time to test your knowledge and reinforce the new pieces of your game plan. We’ll go through a series of simulation hands specifically designed to focus on the new preflop concepts you learned. 

  • Challenging scenarios with short response times to simulate real game play
  • Diagnose issues in your preflop game and get corrections in real-time
  • In-depth feedback from the Pros, each sharing their unique approach
  • Creating a winning practice habit by focusing on decision, not results

During this session you’ll get to use your new perspective to make decisions under pressure. The LearnWPT Pros will provide feedback on your thought process and guide you in recognizing the key factors essential to enhancing your game.

DAY 1 - SESSION 5:
5:30PM - 6:00PM

QUESTIONS... MEET ANSWERS

Now is your chance to clarify the Preflop gameplan you just learned. The key to growth in No-Limit Hold’em is to never stop learning. Start your cycle of constant improvement during this session and ask questions while also listening to the questions from fellow students.  

  • Clarify new concepts you've learned
  • Find exceptions to the "rules"
  • Ensure you've correctly integrated what you've learned
  • Not sure of a new strategy? Your Instructors are here to help

Pay close attention during this session, you never know when the answer to someone else’s strategy question can lead to your “A-Ha moment”!

DAY 2 - SESSION 1:
10:00AM - 1:00PM

ADVANCED POSTFLOP PLAY

Postflop is where the amateurs lose the most money and make the most mistakes. That means it’s where the best players can make the most profit. Here you’ll learn advanced tactics to outplay your opponents postflop and boost your bottom line.

  • The Essential Factors
  • Equity Advantage
  • Nut Advantage
  • Perceived Ranges
  • Continuation Betting Against Tough Players

DAY 2 - SESSION 2:
2:00PM - 3:15PM

GAME THEORY OPTIMAL (GTO) PLAY

Game Theory has had an undeniable impact on poker strategy. Now it’s time for you to apply some of the most cutting-edge concepts in strategic thinking in order to face down your toughest opponents at the table.

  • Nash Equilibrium Solutions
  • Using Solvers
  • Mixed Strategies against “Perfect Opponents”
  • Adjusting to Real World Opponents
  • The Future of No-Limit Hold’em

We’ll make sure you leave Commerce with a game plan as well as the training tools you need to achieve as much growth as possible.

DAY 2 - SESSION 3:
3:30PM - 5:00PM

ADVANCED POSTFLOP DECISION POINTS

You can be sure you’ve learned something when you can do it under pressure. It's time again to test what you've learned with a series of Simulation Hands, challenging you to apply your knowledge of postflop play to realistic situations you will face at the poker table. You’ll then get Pro Insights into these same situations and see what (if anything) you missed.

  • Diagnose issues in your postflop game and get corrections in real-time
  • Discover the critical factors to making these difficult decisions in dynamic situations
  • In-depth feedback from the Pros, each sharing their unique approach
  • Creating a winning practice habit by focusing on decision, not results

You’ll leave this session with a better understanding of how to apply the LearnWPT game plan in real-world poker situations. There's no better way to practice decision-making than to do so in real-time, under pressure, with Pro players there to review and improve your thought process after each one.

DAY 2 - SESSION 4:
5:15PM - 6:00PM
