Obviously poker is not just a game of numbers. It is a game of mental acuity, cerebral stamina, and physical endurance. Courses and data can take you a long way on your chase for poker greatness, but how do you get the rest of the way there? In deep dives with bleeding edge gurus and visionary prophets of mental performance and philosophical perspectives, this is where the high hanging fruit is found.

Most poker courses out there offer you theories.

CPG poker courses deliver you the solutions.

Start your chase for poker greatness here with these leading-edge courses:

Data-Driven Poker Courses With Actual Solutions For Preflop Play And All Three Streets

The Mass Data Analysis (MDA) Revolution has arrived.

CPG’s bleeding edge No Limit Texas Holdem cash game poker training curriculum is developed through MDA-driven analysis, drawn from millions of poker hands, to give you a max exploit roadmap to the land of +EV decision making at all stakes for implementation both online and live.

We’ve done the math. We’ve saved the receipts. We’ve commissioned literal mathematicians to identify mass data trends of the global poker player pool, and from that foundation we’ve built simple, data-proven situational actions that directly translate to profit at the poker table.

The benefit of providing these end result solutions to you right from the drop is that you can immediately start implementing these poker strategies into your game today and begin hardwiring this system upgrade right into your brain as you play until it becomes second nature. We feel that learning by doing is the best way to truly absorb poker knowledge and validate the results in realtime on the green felt.

Other poker training platforms are weighted toward a mix of subjective, oftentimes conflicting theory and a “do what these pros do” approach toward teaching. We believe their methods of teaching poker are ineffective delivery systems for retaining knowledge, and they do nothing to gain you actual experience in the process of your learning.

And so we’ve spent considerable resources analyzing how poker players most effectively learn and absorb information, so that our courses and the process of your learning is optimized for full immersion and daily skill-building as you implement these solid solutions into your game.

Preflop Bootcamp

Preflop Bootcamp is your fastest route to bulletproof confidence before the flop, without needing a photographic memory. Don't settle for "good enough" preflop decisions when you have an opportunity to make a massive skillset upgrade that lasts the lifetime of your poker career whether in peacetime or war. Based on optimal solver ranges, your combat training to develop +EV preflop decisions starts here. Word of warning: it's called "bootcamp" for a reason. It's hard, but immensely rewarding.

Fish In A Barrel & Feeding Frenzy

Welcome to the most powerful systems in poker for maximizing profit vs. fish with total precision, without relying on flawed intuition, outdated assumptions, or using any advanced software. Quickly learnable and ready for rapid use, these individual courses cover in-position C-bet strategy vs. fish in single raised pots from the flop to the river, showing exactly how you should structure your bluffs, when to call down or fold in the face of bets and raises, and how strong your hands need to be to get max value!

NUFFLE (Neutralize Flop Leads)

It feels weird when you raise preflop and your opponent leads into you on the flop, right? If they really had a strong hand, wouldn't they wait for you to bet before they pounced? Should you raise their flop lead when you have air? What do you do when you have a hand like bottom pair? How do you maximize your EV when you actually have strong value like an overpair? If you want the perfect solution from today until the end of days, then scoop up NUFFLE and Neutralize Flop Leads!

NUTTLE (Neutralize Turn Leads)

Let's say everything's going according to plan on the flop, and then villain wakes up to seize the betting lead out of position on the turn. Enter NUTTLE: your literal blueprint for calldown protocol facing turn bets, air / draw strategy against turn donk bets, and value raise thresholds with sizing parameters and 5th street follow-up battle plans to take down the pot. Guidance for turn and river textures are pre-baked into the decision tree to make villain's turn leads more neutralized than ever.

NURRLE (Neutralize River Leads) ***FREE POKER COURSE***

Described by our students as "cheat codes from the poker gods," we've all been in this spot: you're betting on the flop and turn, and villain's paying you off the whole way. Then, ***record scratch*** villain leads out on the river? Neutralize that noise with NURRLE's proven-profitable calling threshold and value raising solutions for every river card runout.

CPG

No recurring monthly fees. No unnecessary filler content. No more rushing to get through everything before a pricy subscription lapses.

We sell solutions and you get what you pay for. Those solutions pay for themselves at the poker tables — guaranteed or your money back.

What Else Comes With Enrollment in a CPG Poker Course?

POKER POWER HOUR: Enrollment in Most Courses grants access to a Zoom Call Every 3 Weeks with CPG coaches and fellow students to break down hands relating to the curriculum

Your purchase of Preflop Bootcamp, Fish In A Barrel + Feeding Frenzy, or NUFFLE grants access to a Poker Power Hour Zoom call every 3 weeks, consisting of direct group learning sessions with Brad and his associate trainers, breaking down your student-submitted hands in realtime. Enroll in all courses and have a PPH call every week!

Gain Access to Course-Specific Slack Channels for ongoing discussion of poker hand analysis (yours and fellow students) for evolving implementation

While all are welcome in the public channels of CPG's Greatness Village online poker community, your enrollment in a CPG course grants you access to a dedicated channel that serves as your on-demand support line and open forum for any questions or strategy discussions for that course. Brad and the associate trainers (and fellow students) are always up to talk strategy!

Access To All Future Course Updates Forever

Poker is always evolving, and with this comes changes in global player trends that reveal opportunities for newfound EV, as well as the dissolution of previous sources. As such, our evaluation of the shifting poker meta is ongoing and ceaseless. All of our courses are routinely audited to verify their validity and profitability at scale. Whereas other poker training platforms have nebulous theories and lectures that are flexible and only loosely bound by data, our standards are significantly higher, as our value proposition to our customers consists solely of offering successful solutions that prove profitable to our students. Our definition of success is, by default, directly tied to the success of our students. For this reason, your purchase of any CPG course grants you access to all future updates to that course, forever.

CPG

The next time you’re in a tough spot at the poker table faced with a big decision, you can either be struggling to remember some vague platitude that a top pro (who never plays the same stakes as you) said on a webinar you watched 5 months ago — OR — you can be armed in that moment with a definitive solution backed by hard data that is proven to be a long-term profitable, +EV decision. Choose wisely.

Greatness Village: The Best Poker Community Out There. We've Got Support In Spades.

Poker is a team sport. And we like our chances this year.

We’re all in this poker thing together. And it can be a hard and lonely road in these streets, whether you put in work online or at the tangible tables. Where’s a poker player to turn to talk strategy, break down hands, and dive deeper into CPG course study?

***large iron gate opening noise with sunrays appearing through clouds as cinematic score swells***

Welcome to Greatness Village: a community support network united in a shared pursuit of poker greatness! Free for anyone to join (regardless of buying a CPG course or not), we’re unaware of a more welcoming and helpful group of poker players paying it forward to help new villagers of any skill level develop their strategies, gain advice about hands they’ve played, and get onboarded with CPG course material to refine its implementation. It’s not uncommon to see CPG students form their own friendly breakout study sessions to push each other to “get good” and have a bit of social fun in the process.

Overseen by Brad Wilson himself, where he chimes in pretty much daily on every Slack channel he can, the Village is populated by associate CPG trainers who are experts in all CPG poker courses, online and live crushers who have been exactly where you are at some point in their own poker career, and most importantly, it’s populated by players just like you, sharing the same goals to improve at the game of poker!

Community is the cornerstone of Chasing Poker Greatness. It’s embedded in our DNA and we like to think it’s one of the main reasons for our growth. We’re here to help and we invite you to become a part of the community. Stop by and say hi!

As the old saying goes…

“It takes a village to raise an absolute crusher on the green felt.”

Or something like that.

Overheard at the Last Greatness village Online block party:

"My favourite thing about Greatness Village is the attitude everyone shares towards improvement in poker. Like, we're all friends and willing to be vulnerable with silly questions, but we'll also roast each others' lines."
Doc

"I'd still be alone in my poker journey if I hadn't found the Greatness Village community and I can't ever imagine going back."
Danny H.

"Greatness Village is a place for grown ass men and women to come talk about their feelings. And it's an opportunity to help others and share poker knowledge."

The Most Thought-Provoking Poker Podcast Featuring Top Pros & Inspirational Mindset Experts

Poker is more than just the act of playing it.

Poker is preparation for performance. Poker is management of mindset. Poker is study of the session. It’s an industry and it’s a game. It’s a competition and it’s a job. It’s an obsession and it’s light-hearted.

It all depends on your perspective.

It’s these perspectives and insights into poker philosophy, strategy, trends, landscape, history, future, and everything in between that Brad Wilson dutifully delves into with celebrated legends, visionaries, thinkers, dreamers, the old guard, and the next up on every episode of the Chasing Poker Greatness Podcast.

You can only learn so much from strategy and study. Poker is a game of mental and physical endurance, and a healthy relationship with the game is not easy to balance at all times. At some point in everyone’s poker career, there comes a time when you need reinvigoration, perspective, and reflection to get to the next level, or prevent yourself from falling to the last.

With over 200 podcast episodes and quickly counting, guests include Matt Berkey, Phil Hellmuth, DGAF, Nick Howard, Johnny Vibes, Kristen Bicknell, David Tuchman, Tommy Angelo, Matt Vaughan, Jonathan Little, Maria Konnikova, James Romero, Martin Jacobsen, Eli Elezra, Landon Tice, Greg Raymer, Marle Cordeiro, Norman Chad, PokerBunny, James Sweeney, The Poker Guys, Jungleman, and so many more.

You know the names. Now hear their stories.

The next chapter in your chase for poker greatness begins here with custom-focused private coaching:

Free Poker Training And Next-Level Strategy From Real Players In Real Hand Breakdowns

It costs you zero dollars to start your poker improvement.

We’re pretty sure we’re supposed to be charging for this stuff, but I guess nobody ever accused us of being brilliant businesspeople. We just love poker and helping players improve their poker game and having a few laughs in the process. And so CPG founder Brad Wilson and co-host Jon Chai turn Tuesdays into the most Tactical of days, to break down real-world hands and dissect the inner thought process and logical decision tree associated with playing profitable poker.

Fast approaching 100 episodes, Tactical Tuesday is a free poker training video series of a tutor / student format, in which Brad reviews hands from equal parts aspiring and accomplished crusher Jon — finding leaks and fixing them, exploring alternate paths to +EV, and especially trying to convince him to stop turning pairs into bluffs!

Available as both a podcast episode and published on YouTube, other training platforms put literally the same thing behind a paywall as part of their subscription content. At CPG, we want you to see the value of our courses in action, so we’re showing you the receipts by breaking down hands weekly from a variety of stakes.

It's not a poker cult. We swear.

"I've taken all of the CPG courses and have found each of them improved my game. Most training sites require one to attentively watch videos and quickly take notes on abstract concepts with no meaningful feedback to speak of. CPG courses provide concrete, actionable strategies in a digestible format. You receive a PDF file that you can then pull apart and study however works best for you, like with flash cards or hand history review. Best of all, each course grants you increased access to the Greatness Village community Slack channels and Zoom call groups that share your coursework and are eager to help you check your mistakes. Maybe he doesn't want me to write this and fill up his inbox even more, but Brad and his team are the most accessible coaches you'll find on the Internet. Rather than upselling or nickel and diming you like a lawyer, he and his amazing community of crushers are always just a quick click away and open to answering questions from earnest seekers of poker wisdom."
Doc
Canadian online poker player and enrollee in all CPG courses
"When I joined the CPG community around 2 years ago, I was barely a breakeven 25NL player. My journey began with Preflop Bootcamp and the impact that course had on my game was so profound, I instantly became a believer in the CPG way. Each subsequent course added more tools to my arsenal. These days, I consistently beat 200NL on GG Poker and am not far away from moving to 500NL. CPG is more than courses though; it is a community, where the biggest crushers are happy to help even the lowliest beginner."
Peter B.
Ireland-based online poker player and Preflop Bootcamp survivor
"Before the poker boom of the early Oughts, when fixed-limit poker was what you played, it was said that if you got a single idea from a poker book that won (or saved) a single bet, it would be worth the price you had paid for that book. And of course a good idea would win or save many bets over time, paying for that book over and over again. This is the era of no-limit hold'em, and a single bet can be worth your entire stack. My bread-and-butter game is a live game with a maximum buy-in of $1k. An idea that lets me double up, or saves my stack, can be worth thousands of dollars, not just the $40 or $60 of a bet in a mid-stakes limit hold'em game. Brainpower is a resource that can be temporarily exhausted through making many decisions. The value of the CPG strategies is that they simplify the decisions one makes in common situations against weaker players, saving brainpower for the difficult situations. By themselves, they can win (or save) bets that add up to more than the cost of the products; but by making those decisions in well-understood spots easier, I can be better prepared to make good decisions in the tough spots, and thus battle for longer and win more money. The CPG strategies were developed from mass data analysis of online games, and they certainly help there; but they also work quite successfully in live games, as well. They have paid for my investment in them over and over again."

OK. So it's a little bit of a poker cult.
