Usually when you hear about someone grinding in poker it means they are putting in a lot of hours on the felt. I’ve been grinding a lot in poker, but it’s been in the editing booth working on new courses.
We are launching our No Limit Cash Series, and I’m really excited about it. It’s broken up in a way that I’ve never seen before and it makes a lot of sense.
I made a little behind the scenes video of the editing process:
We’re first doing a course on some basic concepts. It’s interesting to me to see what concepts Rep chose to include in this course. The way he lays it out is very methodical and logical. I wish this course existed when I was learning.
For instance, he really hammers home how important it is to know how many chips you have at all times and how many you want to put into a given pot.
I’m sure you can relate to me on this example. You get pocket Aces or pocket Kings, end up putting your entire stack in after the flop and are super angry when they are cracked. Well, while AA is a monster pre flop, it’s not a monster post flop. So how many bets should I get in with an over pair type of hand? Well, I guess I never really thought about that way. I just got excited that I finally got Aces and shoveled a bunch of money in the pot.
There’s a bunch more concepts that made me think about in my own game from that intro course.
And then last week, we shot the second installment: No Limit Cash Fundamentals.
After this it’s going to branch out into capped games and uncapped games.
Turns out there are very different strategies if you have 80BB vs 250BB. I consistently find myself in awkward spots and never knew why.
The casinos in my area are all capped buy-ins at the lower stakes. So a lot of the time I’m entering a game with 80-100BB and there are players that might have 400 or even 500BB at the same table. Inevitably, I lose a decent sized pot, and now I have 45 or 50BB. What’s the best way to play this sized stack? Or the flip side, I win a few pots, and now I have 180 or 200BB. What’s the best way to play that stack?
Those courses will be coming soon, and I’m excited to start putting those strategies into my game.
So if you are a cash game grinder, help is on the way. These courses are going to be a game changer for your game. I know they are helping mine!
