Cash Game Blind Spots

A 4 Day Video Workshop Designed to Help You Make More Money by Identifying Problems You Never Knew Existed

LEARN MORE
 
WHAT IS A BLIND SPOT?
It’s an unconscious behavior sabotaging your game.
It’s forcing you into the same mistakes over and over -- without you realizing you’ve done anything wrong.
Some blind spots can even be major leaks. Losses you blame on skill or variance may have been your opponent taking advantage of them. Until you eliminate them, they’ll continue to cripple your game and eat at your bank roll.
It’s okay, every player has them. And there’s good news: simply identifying yours can be all it takes to make it disappear for good.
VIDEO 1. THE BLIND SPOTS RUINING YOUR GAME
Find out what blind spots are and how they show up in your game.

YOU WILL LEARN

1. Why uncovering one blind spot can lead to dramatic increase in performance and profits.
2. 3 blind spots causing hundreds of thousands of dollars in losses around the world every year.
3. The missing info causing you to make bad bets and then blame “luck."
4. The “big picture” blindspot that ensures you’ll always lose (even if you’re playing technically sound poker).
5. The hidden value of blindspots -- how you can use them to chip away at your opponents’ stacks.
VIDEO 2. THE Ax BLINDSPOT
The way you ask about a single handle reveals a lot about why you’re not winning often as you’d like. In this video, I take a reader’s question and systematically break down the blind spots that cost him money. Watch to see how you can identify and eliminate blind spots in your own game.

YOU WILL LEARN

1. How a "simple" question can reveal deep problems with your game.
2. Do you have the ability to play poker and be consistently profitable?
3. The 4 vital concepts that contribute to whether a hand will make money or lose it.
4. Why most poker advice is completely ruining your game.
5. How having multiple blindspots is destroying your bankroll.
VIDEO 3. THE SMALL PAIR BLIND SPOT
We get tons of questions from people about hands where they were playing with a small pair. Some people won but are not sure if they extracted maximum value. Other people lost and are wondering how they could’ve avoided it. Out of all the hands people misplay in poker, small and mid pairs are by far the most commonly botched.

YOU WILL LEARN

1. One of the biggest red flags when a player submits a hand for me to analyze.
2. A crucial concept to consider when you say you’re “getting good odds” to play.
3. You could be missing important pieces of information at the poker table.
4. What really justifies a call based on “implied odds”?
5. The easy first step to figuring out if your plays are actually profitable or not.
VIDEO 4. THE CONTROL BLIND SPOT
Ever get really frustrated by that player who just keeps calling no matter what? One of the most common poker complaints is people feeling frustrated because they have a good hand but someone with a marginal hand catches up and wins by the river. The problem with this mentality is that it shifts responsibility from them onto another player. The secret is: you are in control of your own actions.

YOU WILL LEARN

1. The surprising reason players get frustrated at the poker table.
2. The secret to a huge number of variables that impact your poker success.
3. A strategy problem preflop that can have serious consequences post flop.
4. The biggest mistake “good” poker players make at the poker table.
5. Are you blaming other people for something that’s your own fault?
