Texas Holdem Lessons

We have lots of players come to Texas Holdem Questions who have watched Phil Ivey pull of a huge bluff or Daniel Negreanu hand read perfectly. They go to their local casino and try it and see it’s not the same and wonder why they are losing.

The hands you watch on Youtube and on iPad are carefully selected, you haven’t seen the several hours of background leading up to a perfect bluff.

Texas Holdem Questions develop and improve thinking players to create their own style and poker games rather than imitate famous professionals because we care about making players win, not just look great.

We cater bespoke coaching programs for players at all levels and abilities and concentrate on the key areas that need help.

Our coaches do offer a basic poker course which will help you play the different streets of Texas Holdem and concentrate on their differing importance. There is no substitute for gaining experience and playing and we have coaches ready to dedicate their efforts to help you personally start making money.

Sign up for 2 hours of Texas Holdem Lessons and see what difference we can make to your game and profitability.

WSOP 2019

We are approaching the start of the most popular poker festival. The 50th edition of WSOP Main Event begins on May 29th, running until July 16th, whereby the winner will be crowned! Read on to discover more about the World Series of Poker, as well as discovering how you can be a part of competitive tournaments with the right poker coaching and training. Who knows; maybe you could be on the WSOP winner’s list in the future.

An introduction to the World Series of Poker

So, let’s start by having a brief look at the World Series of Poker (WSOP). Of course, any poker player has heard about this amazing event! But, do you know when it started? It dates back to 1970. Benny Binion started the WSOP with a single tournament event, whereby he invited seven of the world’s best poker players to the Horseshoe Casino. Benny Binion was an American gambling icon, as well as being a career criminal. He also played a huge role in revitalising the Vegas hotel and casino scene. Over time, this event has grown and grown, with the vast majority of the major poker variants featured. In recent years, though, over half of the events are variants of Texas hold’em.

The 50th Series of WSOP

This year’s event is the 50th edition of this amazing tournament. It starts this week and it will end mid-July. The event takes place in Las Vegas, Nevada, at the famous Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino. The tournament involves 89 bracelet events. There are a number of additional tournaments and prizes to celebrate the fact that it is the 50th anniversary of the WSOP. This includes the addition of the Big 50, which is a No Limit Hold’em event with a $500 buy-in, offering $1 million for the winner, which is part of a guaranteed £5 million prize pool. There will also be a No Limit Hold’em event with a $500 buy-in. So, what other events are on the card? As mentioned, there are 89 poker events. The first event is the $500 Casino Employees No Limit Hold’em, and the final event is a $5,000 No Limit Hold’em. In between, there are lots of great poker events, suited to all styles, including a $3,000 Pot Limit Omaha Six-Handed poker event and a number of different Bounty events.

Win more tournaments with expert poker coaching

When it comes to any type of poker tournament, poker coaching and training is of huge importance. You cannot go into these events without doing any research or preparation. There are going to be players there with tons of experience and you need to make sure that you are prepared. We offer tournament (MTT) coaching to ensure that this is the case. This includes hand history reviews, so you can look at how particular hands have been played in the past with our coaches and get expert guidance and insights. You can use this knowledge to give yourself a competitive edge. If you would like more information about the poker coaching we provide and how it can give you an advantage, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

5 Ways to Improve at Poker and Make Money

  1. Pay Attention
    This concept is so simple but lost on so many poker players. So many people are playing on auto pilot, letting HUDs drive their decision making or simply just playing their own cards. There is no substitute for actually concentrating on the table action and using that to your advantage.
  2. Read
    There is so much material out there to help you become a better player. Like any subject, reading and learning more about the subject will improve your technical ability and give you insights you didn’t have before. One of our previous blog entries had some recommendations, see here.
  3. History Review
    This can’t be stressed enough. If you want to fully appreciate your leaks and maximise your strengths, you need to set aside time to review how you have played and get an objective opinion on how you played and what could have been done differently. This needs to be continual process, particularly as the game changes. In order to keep ahead of the game, you need to review and assess continuously.   Texas Holdem Questions offer hand history review sessions for as little as 1 hour.
  4. Pick your games wisely
    Play at appropriate days and times. Tired? Don’t play then! Why are you playing a SNG when you’re a cash game player? If you want to improve your game and build your bank roll, you need to be selective about the games you play and when you play. Treat poker as your business, not just a gamble.
  5. Be Patient
    This is one of the most important skills to become a great player. You need to exercise patience, whether it’s moving limits, playing tournaments and waiting for that big pay or just card dead in your session at casino. I truly believe sometimes patience is what separates losing and winning players. A professional will continue to be patient even after a bad beat, whereas a losing player will chase the following hands.
    We hope you found this post interesting. If you are interested in poker coaching, want some Texas Holdem lessons, feel free to get in touch or even just book 1 hour to see what you think. We’re here to help you improve your game and your bankroll.

    Thanks

Middle & Late Tournament Strategy

Tournament players can struggle with the middle and late stages of tournaments. These key areas separate the most profitable from the average. We identify several key areas to focus on and improve. These include psychological, theoretical, mathematic and strategic. We will coach you in these areas to help you make better decisions and more money in the long run.

  • Psychological – Are you nervous, scared, too aggressive? Are you thinking about the money, always think everyone is stealing and you’re re-raising too much?
  • Stealing blinds and survival strategy
  • Table image and reacting to it
  • Pot odds for calling all ins
  • How to combat the modern loose aggressive players
  • Adjusting post flop betting sizes
  • Adjusting pre flop opening raises
  • Finding optimum moments to steal blinds and antes
  • Bubble strategy
  • Which stacks to pick on?
  • Identify which players to target and play pots with
  • Moving all in at the right time

You can now sign up for as little as 1 hour of coaching to get a feel for how we work with you, to help you become the best player you can be.

How many hours coaching?

Players often wonder how much time do they need coaching for. Usually, the more time you spend doing something, the better you become, however, it’s important to balance the amount of hours you’re being coached. You need to absorb the information and be able to reflect on it and implement. If you are receiving an information overload then how can you fully understand what you are being taught?

We find 2 hours a week is an optimum amount of coaching as this allows players to keep attention and focus on the coaching at hand and have a week to implement any changes.

Please get in touch if you’re interested in signing up to ongoing coaching. We offer competitive rates, particularly for players signing up to monthly retainers.
