The WSOP is right around the corner, so in this blog post, I am going to share with you the most frequent mistake I saw amateur players commit on a regular basis during the last WSOP. Most of these players don’t even realize they are committing this egregious error. This mistake is difficult to notice, especially for players in the small or middle stakes, because the vast majority of the player pool exhibits this flaw. Once the amateurs become aware of it, they will instantly be able to improve their strategies, allowing them to play in a much more profitable manner. Read More
The most common question I am asked is “When should I continuation bet and for how much should I continuation bet?” Well, in this 15-minute video, I answer that question. Let me know what you think!

My training site PokerCoaching.com started off as an experiment to see if I could find a better way to teach my students how to develop the fundamental skills required to succeed at poker. While watching training videos of world-class players play in real time is great, I thought the lack of interactivity was a problem. I decided to develop interactive quizzes so my students could compare their skills to mine in real time, getting immediate feedback on spots where I disagree with their strategies. After putting in just a bit of time working on their games, my students started seeing improvements, and eventually, significant, life-changing wins. Read More
If you want to become great at anything, you should find people who are better than you and learn everything you can from them. It is not uncommon for an amateur student to come to me thinking they play great, and after one private coaching session, realize they have a lot to learn. Most of these players diligently apply the concepts I teach them and see an immediate improvement to their win rate. If you only talk poker with people who play the same games that you play, expect to stay stuck at that level forever. This is one of the main reasons why many small stakes players never progress beyond the small stakes games. Read More
I recently had the pleasure of playing and commentating at Stones Gambling Hall in Sacramento, California (thanks to Justin Kuraitis). It was a ton of fun. If you have never been, you are missing out. There are links to my four days of play/commentary below the video blog.
My team and I have been working hard to make the FloatTheTurn Push/Fold app the best Push/Fold app on the market. In addition to being the most accurate, it is also completely free. We recently added calling ranges as well as a fun quiz feature. Check out the videos below and let me know what you think!
I recently had the pleasure of traveling to the Borgata in Atlantic City for their $3,500 buy-in World Poker Tour event. The following two hands illustrate a dynamic that I constantly strive to set up to give me the best possible chance of getting paid off when I happen to make a premium hand.
With blinds at 200/400-50, everyone folded to me on the button and I raised to 1,000 out of my 40,000 stack with Qs-9s. A tight, aggressive kid in the small blind 3-bet to 2,600 and I called. Read More
A while back in preparation for my book Strategies for Beating Small Stakes Poker Cash Games, I spent some time playing live $1/$2 no-limit hold’em. I learned so much from the games that I hosted an in-depth 4-hour long webinar explaining my findings. Near the end of the webinar, I discussed many mindset flaws that most of my opponents demonstrated. If could teach my opponents one thing, it would be to stop caring about losing money due in common, routine situations.
Early in one of my sessions, I was dealt As-Ks from middle position. I raised to $7 and a tight, passive 50-year-old guy went all-in from the small blind for $60. I made the easy call. My opponent showed 10-10. The flop came A-8-6-4-10, giving the pot to my opponent. Read More
