Upswing Poker’s industry-leading training site just added another cutting-edge poker course. Cash game players can rejoice, as the latest addition to the Upswing Poker curriculum focuses exclusively on cash gameplay
This newly-released standalone course, however, differs from anything else currently available in the realm of poker education. “Elite Cash Game Exploits with Uri Peleg” teaches cash game strategy that’s heavy on exploitative play.
Peleg, Upswing’s newest coach and the instructor for the 25-hour course, uses an exploitative playing style to crush some of the toughest online poker games in the world.
Many successful poker players, especially at the stakes Peleg regularly plays, use a game-theory optimal (GTO) strategy, which attempts to emulate mathematically unexploitable solutions outputted by poker solvers. Solvers function as sophisticated computer software that can calculate exact, theoretically perfect solutions for many poker situations.
The advent of solvers revolutionized modern poker strategy, with many of the world’s top players aiming to duplicate a solver’s GTO outputs as much as possible. Peleg’s recipe for poker success diverts significantly from GTO strategy, however.
“I talk about a GTO player like a singer, who’s on stage and he’s trying to sing a perfect song,” Peleg says. “And the exploitative player is sitting in the audience with a sack of tomatoes. Every time a GTO player hits a wrong note, he throws a tomato.”
“What I’m trying to teach people in the course is that you can focus on playing perfect, but GTO is naturally a defensive strategy. You’re trying to balance ranges and disguise what you’re doing, because otherwise, your opponent would be able to exploit you.
“These days all of the materials are focused on (GTO strategy),” Peleg says. “And a lot of it becomes very redundant, because nobody is trying to exploit anyone else, and no one really knows how.”
Elite Cash Game Exploits features 25 hours of instruction, focused on what Peleg contends is the lost but highly profitable art of exploitative play.
