Tadas “My Poker Coaching” Peckaitis
Many players do not reach success in poker for one obvious reason – they don’t have a system to know how to improve. Consuming random content, watching your favorite pros play or reading how-to books will not help you much; you need to have your own strategy.
This is why I launched my complete poker training program where I show you what you need to do to be successful, and most importantly how to do it. To get more information you can register for a FREE webinar following the same link to make sure you will get most out of it.
The full program is divided into three parts and nine simple steps that will help you to build a solid strategy and prepare for your games. Therefore, today I want to quickly recap those three parts.
This is the first step, which many players miss. Obviously, learning advanced strategies is crucial, but you have to make a few things right even before sitting down at the poker table.
For example, it’s important to choose the best game format for you. Some players start playing MTTs (Multiple Table Tournaments) right away, and I was one of them. But after a while, those 12-hour sessions started to get tiring. Personally, I feel much better when I can control when I want to play and how long my session should be. For those reasons, cash games are way better fit for me. You need to determine the best fit for you!
The same thought process goes for choosing the right poker room and poker tools. It is better to make good decisions in the beginning, and you will save a lot of time and money in the process.
Another area that might not look essential but is actually crucial is your mental strategy. Just as before, it is better to make this right at the beginning so as not to have regrets later on.
Spending a few minutes to prepare for your games, review what you are trying to learn and warming up the brain can do wonders. You will be able to start making better decisions from the start of the session and keep your concentration longer, which matters a lot. On top of that, learn to identify your emotions so you know when to quit playing at the right time as well as to prevent yourself from tilting.
In addition, you need to get into Game Theory Optimal (GTO) implementation. GTO is a very wide topic, but the most important takeaway is that you need to learn GTO so you can use it as your starting point. However, as soon as you notice imbalances and mistakes in your opponent’s play, you should switch to exploitative strategy because that is where all the money is.
The last part is self-explanatory. When you have covered the previous steps, you are ready to do some heavy lifting and jump into advanced strategies yourself.
If you are playing online, you have the luxury of using your own stats to identify your mistakes and make a plan on how to fix them. However, most players should start by learning fundamental strategies like c-betting, bluffing spots, big blind play, bet sizing and so on.
