CRUSH Cash Games With These TOP TIPS! | A Little BRÈINFÚEL with Jonathan Little 9-12-2022



Despite being a two-time World Poker Tour champion who mostly plays poker tournaments, I have played many cash games in my time and have learned a lot of valuable lessons that have helped my game. Whether you compete at the micro stakes or are a high stakes crusher, cash games offer poker players a great way to increase their bankroll whether playing poker online or in a poker room.

Today, we study up on cash game strategy and take part in some of my very own interactive quizzes. To beat cash games at any stakes, you must be well studied for when your opponents put you in tough spots. Getting tilted and playing like a maniac will get you nowhere at the poker table, apply the poker tips I share with you today and get ready to crush cash games.

By the end of today’s stream, I want YOU to take this quiz and let me know in the comments how you do: https://pokercoaching.com/cashquiz

As a professional poker player, I need to be able to consistently focus throughout the day. I used to drink a lot of coffee to help with focus, but it would inevitably lead to a crash. Then, I discovered BRÈINFÚEL.⁣

It combines everything you need including natural caffeine, MTC oil, vitamin C, vitamin E and collagen to give long lasting energy in a healthy way that allows you to focus your best all day long.⁣

WPH #424: Patrik Antonius SOUL READS With $825,000 On The Line!!!



Patrik Antonius is no stranger to battling for huge amounts of money at the poker tables. He is mostly known for his exploits in the world of high stakes cash games but here he finds himself 3 handed in a $25,000 Triton Poker tournament with $825,000 for 1st!

In this hand from the Triton Poker Series in Cyprus, Patrik Antonius finds himself in a tricky spot on the river as his aggressive opponent Fahredin Mustafov puts him to the test with just ten high!

On the river Patrik Antonius shows us all why he has stood the test of time and is still battling in the biggest poker games in the world. Using all of his time banks he really thinks the spot through and stares down his opponent before making his decision.

With just bottom pair on this board and facing aggression on every single street, could you find the call for your tournament life in a $25,000 Triton poker tournament?!

Thank you to Triton Poker for allowing me to use their video footage, check out this hand and many more over on their YouTube channel: https://youtube.com/tritonpoker

WPH #423: Tom DWAN Is BACK [CRAZY High Stakes Poker BLUFF!]

Tom Dwan has recently been gracing our screens again as he is battling it out in more high stakes cash games!

In this hand there is a $10,000 bounty from each player if you can win the poker hand with 72o. Well if you give Tom Dwan 72o you just know he is going to run a huge poker bluff to try and win a massive pot.

On the other side of this poker hand is what makes this whole hand absolutely incredible. Rui Cao has just 87o and only has eight high! Who will win this massive $650,000 high stakes poker pot.

He says he was going to call Tom Dwan had Tom shoved the river, do you think this is true? Had he made a sick live read that Tom Dwan was just trying to win the $10,000 bounty? Let me know in the comments below!

WPH #422: YOUNG Poker Player OWNED In Texas?!



Rosey from NextGenPoker finds himself in a battle against a very aggressive opponent who has (so far) been running over everyone at the poker table.

When playing around 150bb effective in a cash game you do not often want to be 4 betting in position with non premium hands as it allows your opponent to shove on you.

I see many of my students making big blunders on monotone flops (all of the same suit) so if this is you then be sure to watch this video to help improve your poker win rate!

Always be aware of your opponents and adjust your poker strategy depending on their tendencies. If you have an opponent that is extremely loose and aggressive then be sure to let them bluff into you!

WPH #421: Poker Professional FLIPS A COIN For $213,900?!



It’s hard to hit trips when playing heads-up, it’s even harder to fold your hand when you do! In this weekly poker hand, Shannon Shorr shows us all why he is widely considered to be one of the best poker players in the world.

I discuss the merits in checking back with weak top pairs on wet boards against aggressive opponents in order to extract value on later streets. I also teach you why you should be looking to take the betting lead when the flop is checked through with your value hands.

When deciding to use an overbet size you are polarizing your range of poker hands to either complete air or a nutted hand. This means that your opponent’s should not be raising these bet sizes very often as a bluff!

Shorr has amassed over an incredible $10,000,000 in live tournament winnings and currently is ranked 7th on the Global Poker Index rankings. His opponent Ren Lin has burst onto the scene in the last couple of years having racked up over $2,000,000 in cashes in less than 24 months!

WPH #420: ACES vs KINGS For $456,700!!!



When pocket aces are up against pocket kings you know a huge pot is going to brew, especially when you are playing over 275 big blinds deep!

This huge cash game poker hand took place on the Hustler Casino Live stream where the players were playing extremely high stakes cash game poker with the blinds at $100/$200/$400/$800!

Make sure you are 3-betting with your strongest hands especially when playing deep stacked poker, do not get tricky and trappy before the flop.

It is hard when you run into such a cooler to not become too results oriented in poker. Try to analyze the decisions you make rather than the outcome of individual poker hands.

WPH #419: A Huge MISTAKE Cost Him $90,000! [High Stakes Poker]

Garrett Adelstein a regular on the Hustler Casino Live show finds himself in a huge pot against businessman Michael. Michael makes a huge mistake that might just cost him $90,000!

Garrett Adelstein is the largest winner on the Hustler Casino Live stream having amassed over an incredible $1,000,000 in profit since the start of the high stakes poker stream. His loose and aggressive playing style means that he finds himself getting paid in big spots when he has big hands!

Because of his image other players have been known to lose their minds against him and completely overvalue the strength of their hand and pile stacks of money into the middle!

Remember to take your time when you have a big decision at the poker table. Be courteous of the other poker players but when the decision is for a $180,000 pot you are more than welcome to take more than 2 seconds to decide!

WPH #418: How To WIN $115,000 With Pocket ACES

Matt Berkey wakes up with pocket aces in this high stakes poker cash game on the Hustler Casino Live stream. How much value can he get in a multiway pot?

Berkey only has 56% equity on the flop so he needs to thin the field as quickly as possible but a sticky recreational player has top pair and decides to raise. This turns out to be a huge pot on this poker live stream!

The flop is a good one for Berkey’s pocket aces as there are no strong draws available so he should definitely be continuing to build a pot by betting.

I discuss the poker strategy that you should be considering to disguise the strength of your hand on the flop to encourage your opponent’s to stack off lighter on future betting rounds.

It is important to always be considering your opponent’s range and find the spots to continue value betting against the more loose & passive poker players.

How To CHIP UP In POKER Tournaments | A Little BRÈINFÚEL with Jonathan Little 7-25-2022



The ability to acquire more poker chips is the only thing that keeps you alive in a poker tournament. Eventually, you are going to need to pull more chips into your chip stack if you hope to make the final table. Being able to run deep in poker tournaments starts with studying the best poker tournament strategies. Even if you go card dead, if you are properly prepared you can take on any live or online poker tournament.

Texas Hold’em can be a brutal game sometimes, especially when you are card dead and can’t seem to make any strong hands. When playing large field tournaments like the WSOP, you must be comfortable making moves that successfully add to your stack, as you will need them to play to the end.

As a professional poker player, I need to be able to consistently focus throughout the day. I used to drink a lot of coffee to help with focus, but it would inevitably lead to a crash. Then, I discovered BRÈINFÚEL.⁣

It combines everything you need including natural caffeine, MTC oil, vitamin C, vitamin E and collagen to give long lasting energy in a healthy way that allows you to focus your best all day long.⁣
