The invisible decisions that are costing you dearly

As you very well know by now Preflop Bootcamp launches in just over an hour so I’m going to keep today’s email as brief as your naturally-long-winded coach can.

When someone in my Slack Community asks me about a decision they made in a hand it’s almost never about pre-flop.

Have you ever asked yourself why that is?

Why do you wonder more about river decisions than you do the ones you make pre-flop?

On the river you get direct feedback on the decision you just made and it’s going to cause an emotional response (typically negative if you lost the hand).

What question immediately pops in your mind when you feel a little lost, call a river, and lose?

It probably sounds something like this:

“Could I have played this river in differently? Was there any way to prevent my river mistake?”

It’s Kindergarten color-within-the-lines easy to inflate the importance of the decision that gives you direct feedback while deflating the importance of analyzing the decisions that got you to that point in the first place.

It would have been way easier for me to sell you a product that addresses river decisions.

The problem is you would continue to regularly get to the river with hands you shouldn’t be playing and by taking lines you shouldn’t be taking.

Without learning how you’re supposed to be getting to the river a course like that would be incredibly low impact and live up to my standards of impact.

Today is the day to gain awareness to the mistakes you’re making that you do not know you’re making.

The invisible mistakes that lead you to suffering on rivers when you had no business even making to the river.

I’ll leave you with these testimonials from folks who went through Bootcamp 1.0:

“Pre-boot camp lifetime loser, since boot camp 4BB/100 winner at 25NL … he’s not lying”


“I have not played this much online poker since Black Friday. After that fateful day, I stopped enjoying online poker and playing it because I couldn’t beat the game anymore… Until now.”

-John M.

“It’s difficult to quantify the value. Having clarity on optimal preflop strategy provides clarity on what optimal flop strategy looks like and so on. Basically, the value is massive.”

-Jon Chai

You have a little under 1 hour to hop in before the cart closes and this will be your last reminder.
