If you constantly chop in tournaments, you are lighting money on fire! This is because when you chop, you fail to get experience in short-handed, high-pressure situations. And on top of that, it’s unlikely that you’re getting an advantageous deal.

If you only win pots when you have the best hand, you will not win significant money in poker. The idea of playing tight and straightforward only works if your opponents are really bad. To become a consistent winner, you must steal pots that don’t belong to you while developing an aggressive image that will actually get you paid off when you have the nuts.
In this video, I will show you when and how to exploit common opponents through aggression. If you apply these concepts, you will see an immediate increase to your win-rate!Read moRE

In this video, I explain all your options so you know how to stay in action without opening yourself up to losing all your funds.

If you have played much poker at all, you have certainly heard the term “pot committed”, which essentially means that you have put so much money into the pot that you can no longer fold a hand that is almost certainly in bad shape against your opponent’s range. However, most players apply this incorrectly, often justifying calling off the rest of their chips while drawing nearly dead. Read More
I am frequently amazed at how slowly some poker players play. Assuming you are a winning poker player, you make some amount of equity per hand you are dealt. Let’s assume you make $1 per hand. If you usually know what you will do within a reasonable amount of time, you will make around $30 per hour at the standard live poker table that plays 30 hands per hour. If instead, you take your time on every street and slightly increase your win rate to $1.20 per hand but now play only 20 hands per hour, you will cut your win rate to $24 per hour despite making (hopefully) better decisions.

This hand came up in a $1,000 World Series of Poker event I last year where I raised to 400 out of my 11,000 effective stack at 100-200-25 from middle position with 9s8s and an older, fairly straightforward guy called in the small blind. The flop came 9h-8d-5d, giving me top two pair. He checked, I bet 700 and he called. The turn was the Kd, making the flush possible. He checked, I bet 1,700, he raised to 3,400 and I called. The river was the 2c. He bet 2,100 and I called.
