Normally, 986th place is not the greatest finish in an MTT, but when you're talking about the biggest live tournament of the year, it's quite a feat. Red Chip Poker PRO member Keith Christopher drops by this week to discuss his deep run in the 2017 WSOP Colossus. What did he study and how did he apply it to outlast 17,000 other players and cash in this mammoth field? He shares his insight on another episode exploring the deep tournament runs of our most dedicated members.
Poker's more fun when the pot's split between the high hand and the low hand, and perhaps more profitable too! Greg Vail, the newest addition to our Red Chip Poker coach roster, drops by this week to share his enthusiasm for Omaha 8-or-Better and Big O, two of the most popular split pot games being spread these days. Hear Vail break down the basics of how these games work, the common leaks you need to plug and exploit, and the strategies you need to adjust your hold 'em knowledge to compete in a split pot environment.
When we first sit down at the table, how do we gather as much information about how our opponents are playing as quickly as possible? This is a question you'll ask in every session you play, and every time a new player sits down. In this episode, James 'SplitSuit' Sweeney dives deep into how to read opponents and their actions for answers. He discusses how to profile players, from their appearance and demeanor all the way to their betting frequencies and sizing.
We couldn't be more excited to bring you this week's episode, because Doug Hull is here to discuss his upcoming new book, More Poker Plays You Can Use. The sequel to Hull's acclaimed debut as a solo poker strategy author is a literal wealth of information that low-stakes live cash players will use to dominate games for years to come. The book is based on Hull's years of experience grinding $1/$2 games and analyzing the mathematics of poker strategy, even developing his own software release (Flop Falcon) to help players build flop intuition. Don't miss this exciting preview with one of poker's most respected strategists and authors.
