What if you knew your opponent’s weaknesses better than they knew their own?



They wouldn’t even know that you were exploiting them.


Get instant answers from the most powerful preflop blueprint ever created.



How do you know what the most profitable plays are preflop? For most players, the best-case scenario is that they bought some range charts, or a preflop solve and studied the ranges.


 
*These are not the most profitable plays*


 How do you know what the most profitable plays are postflop? For some of you, it means running spots on a solver, or maybe even adjusting the ranges for the players and seeing what the solver comes up with.
 
 *These are not the most profitable plays*


You see, there’s two problems with these approaches:
 

1) Real players do not play anything like the solvers;
 
2) Solver outputs are ridiculously complex, and impossible to execute with any kind of accuracy. In the end you play a weak and exploitable version of what you imagine the solver strategies to look like. You also miss out on a ton of straightforward exploit opportunities by sticking dogmatically to what the balanced solver told you to do.

There is a far more profitable, smarter, and straightforward way:


Mass Database Analysis + Solver Study for Preflop Optimization
 
 

You see, in the last couple of years a more advanced database software gave us the ability to study how populations are playing in practice. We could see specifically how regs play against each other, and how different types of fish play. 

We combine both the solver and population data methods together to come up with max EV strategies against all types of opponents. This is the most scientifically rigorous approach possible, and brings guaranteed win-rate when executed correctly. It also ends up being by far the easiest way to play. For some reason people seem to think that optimal play must be the most complicated and elaborate, but as Einstein remarked: “Everything should be made as simple as possible, but not simpler.”


Here's an example of what we analyze in Black Box:
 
 

RFI Frequency by Position - Volatile Fish vs Solver 2.5x

 

We all know that fish love to limp, but what about their raising ranges? By sub-profiling 'Volatile Fish' and 'Passive Fish' we find massive differences in the preflop strategies of different types of fish. Here we see just how incredibly wide Volatile Fish raise, despite also having a wide limping range. Using this data we can re-calibrate our defending strategies to max exploit the player profile we're facing.


SQUASHING UNCERTAINTY AND INDECISION WITH MASS DATA
 

In early 2017, we released a course called Night Vision which used GTO solvers to plot optimal solutions against pool trends. By studying millions of hands, we gained vision over the pool’s imbalances across gigantic samples.

For the first time, we had irrefutable evidence in support of a winning exploitative strategy. By pouring on aggression in zones where human players systematically overfolded, we were able to gain a massive edge over a pool, and they had no idea what hit them.

What we had was a consistent, data-driven system. And not only was it more incentivized than GTO, but it was also simpler and more practical to implement.

Within a year, the Night Vision community grew to over one hundred members, and many of these players achieved massive success. The reason they were able to hack the system is that they were willing to put their trust in something larger than themselves. Some of these players even rose from low stakes to high stakes in that time. 

They were able to defer to the data in unclear zones and capitalize on the pool trends, rather than having to always rely on their judgment on a case-by-case basis.

Not only that, but they were able to thrive in a new learning environment that was collaborative and scientific. They had a common goal to find proven, practical exploits. They didn’t waste their time with complexity and speculation that ultimately leads nowhere.

Now, we’re applying this technology to the other side of the game tree. Rather than studying the pool’s postflop frequencies, we’ve studied the preflop game tree to exploit the pool in zones where they are imbalanced, and where they use different sizings in an exploitable way. We also found the highest EV sizing schemes to use based on hundreds of millions of data point hands of real-world performance. 

For the first time we have created an all-encompassing blueprint for the preflop game tree, having micro-analyzed every line all types of opponents take, and establishing what optimal play looks like with preflop solves for different sizing schemes and rake environments. Everything you need to approach preflop with confidence and advantage over your opponents is here.

Here’s a sneak peek at what’s inside the course… 

WHAT'S IN THE COURSE


Black Box is broken into five video modules, and seven Monker Solver solution modules

 Volatile Fish Preflop Mass Database Analysis: 
 Simple Strategies For Maximizing Win Rate Against Recreational Players
 
Learn exactly how wide Volatile Fish open and defend preflop, and which bet/raise sizings to target. Also learn how to adjust your raising ranges and sizings to maximally exploit this player type.

2


Passive Fish Preflop Mass Database Analysis:
 Simple Strategies For Maximizing Win Rate Against Recreational Players
 
Learn exactly how much tighter Passive Fish open and defend preflop compared to Volatiles, which bet/raise sizings to target, and which to be very careful of. Also learn how to adjust your raising ranges and sizings to maximally exploit this player type.

3


Reg Preflop Mass Database Analysis:

12


The Solves:
Monker Solves for the entire preflop game tree, covering all major open raise sizings, and various 3- and 4-bet sizing schemes, for the major rake structures. 

Gain full clarity of optimal preflop play with the most robust collection of preflop solves ever created. You will discover all the adjustments required as the aggressor and defender in different sizing schemes and rake environments. Bet/raise sizings and rake have a dramatic impact on strategies, so it is very important to know the adjustments to make.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Is the course relevant for the site I play on?

    Yes, it applies to all 100bb 6-Max NLHE poker, and has much application to full ring too. The pack was made using data from multiple major environments including PokerStars, iPoker, Winamax, WPN, and 888poker, including stakes from $50nl to high stakes, covering both Zoom and regular tables.

  • How long is the course in total?

    The course consists of short, intensive video lectures of 10-15 minutes length each. But the main time spent during the course is with the Monker solves and the Mass Database Analysis Data Sheets. Those should be studied on an ongoing basis.

  • How much time should I expect to devote?

    We expect that within 15 hours of studying this course a player can substantially improve their winrate by simply memorizing and applying the key exploits.

  • Do I need any software for this course?

    You will need a spreadsheet opening software (e.g. Microsoft Excel or OpenOffice), and MonkerViewer (free, with instructions for getting started in a few minutes, included in the course). If you already own MonkerSolver or plan to purchase it, then you will be able to load the original solve files in the software.

  • How do I know your coaching is legit?

    Since converting from chess, where I was a world youth championship participant, national captain and coach, I have since had significant success in poker, coaching players from micro stakes all the way to the highest stakes over several years. A number of players I am currently working with recently played in the $25k buy-in PSPC event in the Bahamas, with all but one of them cashing it. I was featured on PokerNews when I became the sixth-fastest player in the world to reach Supernova Elite on PokerStars, and was more recently a guest on the Elliot Roe Mindset Advantage podcast.

  • What if I fall behind?

    You will gain lifetime access to the course, so you can study at your own pace.

  • How is this course different from Night Vision and Ether

    Night Vision and Ether provide blueprints for the postflop part of the game, whereas Black Box provides a blueprint for the preflop part of the game. Combined, you have a complete blueprint.

  • Is there a refund available?

    There is no refund available on this course as it has brought proven success and will provide guaranteed increased win-rate with correct application.
