Free Poker Training Every Week From Two Online Crushers Who Don't Always Agree. It's Tactical Tuesday.

Tuesdays are the most tactical of days at Chasing Poker Greatness. Each week, Coach Brad Wilson and co-host Jon Chai break down hands that they’ve played online recently, in a coach / student format, diving deep into strategy and alternate path exploration, to see where mistakes were made, opportunity was lost, accidents became happy, etc.

Other poker training platforms lock this type of content behind a paywall; we probably should be also. We’ve never been accused of being great businesspeople, but our mismanagement is your +EV gain every Tuesday, as we will continue to deliver next level insight into higher stakes online cash game strategy, published both on the CPG YouTube channel and the CPG Podcast feed.

With Almost 100 Episodes and Adding 1 More Every Week, Tactical Tuesday is Your Free Poker Training Home Base for In-Depth Strategy

Tactical Tuesday Recent Poker Training Episodes:

Free poker training modules for all player levels.
