For those who don’t know me, I am Jonathan Little. In addition to being a best-selling poker author, I have accumulated over $6,200,000 in live tournament winnings over the last 10 years as a professional poker player. When I first started playing poker as an 18-year-old kid, I was horrible.

I only wanted to put my hard-earned money in the pot when I knew I had the best hand. I eventually learned this strategy is a sure way to go broke. If you are an amateur player, you almost certainly have glaring holes in your poker strategy, just as I did when I first started.

This course is designed to give the average poker player a step up in mastering the fundamentals of Texas Hold'em in an easy-to-follow course.

Start down the road to becoming a more polished player with these 5 steps.

Profit by Becoming More Aggressive

Deciding How Much to Bet in NLH

Putting Your Opponent on a Range

The vast majority of amateur players put their opponents on a specific hand then play based on their assumption. Instead, you should put your opponent on a range of hands then narrow that range as the hand progresses. This article explains how.

Chapter 4

Eliminating Tilt

Frequently poker players become unhappy and adjust their play when they are doing poorly at the poker table. If you learn to eliminate tilt from your game, you will play your best for a longer period of time compared to your opponents, allowing you to win more money from poker.
