In this MasterClass, you're going to be seated directly across from me on the felt. And we're going to cover a bunch of stuff that I've never shared before-- specifically, in the domain of reading people, picking up tells, hiding tells, as well as a whole host discussion about tournament strategy, continuation betting, how to figure out when you should bet multiway pot dynamics. We're going to cover three betting, the whole gamut. And we're going to have footage, real-life footage from hands that have happened on television and break down who did what correctly and what mistakes might have been made. So as we go through this course, I want you to be cognizant of the fact that eventually these concepts will seep in and you'll have a better understanding. Anytime you take on something new, it can be challenging. And there's essentially four stages to this learning, and the first stage is I'm no good at this. And I don't really know what I'm doing. The second stage would be, OK, so I know I'm not good at this, but I don't really know how to get better at it. The third stage is-- all right, so I know what I got to work on, but it's really, really hard. And when you get to stage four, stage fouring it is essentially like driving a car where you no longer have to think about it. So, for example, with pot odds, when I first started playing poker, I would actually have to manually think through counting the pot odds in every situation until the point I got so comfortable with it, that now, I just know it. And I have a rough eyeball, I can look at the pot, and I go can get about three to one. So it's become like breathing for me. And essentially that's where I want to get you with a lot of the concepts we're going to share. We want to get you to stage fouring it so that it's like breathing for you as well. I'm Daniel Negreanu, and this is my MasterClass.

4.7
Students give MasterClass an average rating of 4.7 out of 5 stars.

Perfect class for someone familar with the game but no real experience playing against good players or regulars. I think I have a good foundation to build upon after taking this class.

מאד עזר לי מבחינה מנטלית טיך לניתכונן למשחק הייתי שמח אם הוא היה מדבר על עבודה בבית מחוץ למשחק מה ללמוד ואיך

Mr. Negreanu is an excellent presenter. It's been a pleasure seeing how his incredible mind works.

Too many lessons to list, but here are the highlights: 1) There are no absolutes in poker. There is no "never" and there is no "always". There is only, "it depends". 2) Conduct yourself with integrity at all times; both professionally and personally. 3) Be "process" driven, not "results" driven. If you truly give 100% of your effort to the process the results will follow.

This is my third time through the lessons... So far I came in second in a tournament and made $450 for second place. Small local weekly event. So this course paid for all my courses.

not for beginners assume knowledge a beginner does not possess.no definition of terms

Yoshee M.

I really like that he breaks down the four stages of playing poker and that we will be learning each stage respectfully.

Franco

In the lesson PDF up your game section, it suggest getting a database software. I went with HM3, but it seems like a lot to learn and go through. Anyone have any recommendations on how they us their poker database software? Also it says to check out twitch. I've never used twitch before. Anyone have recommendations on who or what to watch on twitch? Or how to best use twitch to study poker?

Sorry, but rubbish - if something says 'teaches' I expect to learn how to do that thing. This isn't about learning how to play poker, which I expected it to be, but instead listening to a prentencious American rattle on about things I haven't even got to yet.

So I am on a MAC, all my systems are MACs, what is a good software for MAC to analyze game play like the one mention in the PDF.

Louis G.

Are all the PDFs lesson by lesson, or is there one master PDF for the whole course that I can download? Thx
