PokerCoaching Premium: Tournament Learning Path

I’m looking forward to helping you get started with my interactive training site!

How to Improve Your Tournament Skills:

Take a moment to download and get familiar with my preflop charts in the Tools section:

Take note of how your pre-flop ranges should change based on stack depth. In general, as stacks get shorter, high-card hands go up in value and hands that rely on having good implied odds (suited connectors) go down in value.

The following curriculum will help improve your tournament skills and get you acquainted with the site. Please let me know if you have any questions by emailing support@pokercoaching.com.

Let’s start with a couple of in-depth Preflop Classes!
