[embedded content]

Ready to test your exploitative poker skills?

Upswing Poker’s newest course, titled Precision Poker, comes from the mind of chess champion turned high stakes poker pro Alex Vuilleumier.

An International Master in chess and a WSOP bracelet winner in poker, Alex brings a fresh approach to studying poker that focuses on building your own game from the bottom-up.

The course drops at Upswing Poker this upcoming Monday (February 19th).

Important note: If you get Precision Poker by next Friday (February 23rd), you’ll also get Alex’s Exploit & Conquer course (a $299 value) as a free bonus.

The Exploit & Conquer course features 62 different exploit drills, which come in quiz form and feature the exploits that Alex uses in his how game. 

Here’s a sneak peek at three of the quiz questions from the bonus course.

Alex recommends that you watch the video above, and pause after each question to give thorough thought to your answer. The hit play again for the answer reveal. But you can also take the quiz in a written format below.

Alex’s Answer (3:20 to 4:12 in the video)

You 3-bet more and call more against this opponent’s open-raises.

If your opponent is playing something close to a normal strategy vs the 3-bet, they’ll have to fold quite often to your increased 3-betting. In this case, a polarized 3-betting range makes sense.

If your opponent is open-raising too much and, additionally, calling 3-bets too much, a merged 3-betting range makes more sense.

This player may also c-bet too often on the flop, against which you can frequently attack him with raises.

Question #2 – Your opponent c-bets on the flop too often when they’re in position. How could you exploit this tendency?

Alex’s Answer (4:28 to 5:58 in the video)

If someone is over c-betting in position, (and everybody on Earth is over c-betting in position), how should you react? First of all you have to check-raise more.

The other option is to float wider on the flop… they will have to check back on the turn a lot, because they don’t have anything. They know that you called the c-bet, so their strategy didn’t work. So now they check back the turn and you can make them fold on the river a lot.

Question #3 – Your opponent check-raises the flop and then checks the turn with strong hands too infrequently. How could you exploit this?

In other words, after check-raising the flop, they don’t trap with their strong hands frequently enough.

Think for a moment about your answer and then scroll down when you’re ready for the answer.

Alex’s Answer (6:21 to 7:13 in the video)

You should stab more frequently when this opponent checks the turn. Conversely, you should fold more when this opponent continues barreling on the turn, and be more careful on the river when you do call a turn barrel.

As Alex says:

You can float more on the flop because you’ll have great visibility afterward. That’s actually the reason you can open-raise more (preflop) because you will know what’s happening later.

Poker is a game of incomplete information. If we know how our opponent will play; when he has something he will bet, when he doesn’t have it we can stab and win the pot, that is very easy.
