Many poker players can make good decisions at the table with a reasonable frequency. Nevertheless, there are numerous situations where even very experienced players behave in predictable ways. These deeply-ingrained habits lead them to make mistakes. The problem is that these situations won’t often arise at the table by chance – you have to make them happen. Exploitative Play in Live Poker is a ground-breaking work that teaches you how to create the circumstances where your opponents will be likely to blunder and how to exploit them when they do.

To achieve this you will need to put to one side starting hand charts, balance and GTO (Game Theory Optimal) play. Instead you will incorporate new concepts that may well place you outside your comfort zone. However, your style will now be forcing the other players at the table outside of their comfort zone and, unlike you, they won’t know how to adapt.

Learn how to:

* Counter the auto-continuation-bettor
* Develop a powerful donk-betting strategy
* Use the overbet, the check-raise and the three-barrel effectively
* As well as being a highly successful player, Alex Fitzgerald runs a poker consultancy that serves more than 1,000 professional poker players in 60 countries. As part of this work, he has very likely trawled through more hand history databases than anyone else. This gives him a unique insight into how players really play, especially when placed under pressure and forced into unfamiliar situations.

Practical,no BS advice Another excellent book from Alexander Fitzgerald. If you are looking for some complex stuff to dazzle other grandstanders on the 2+2 forums, then look elsewhere. But if you are looking for usable takeaways that work in today’s games this is for you. The authors strength is to see the big picture in various situations and reduce that to a simplified approach which can be present in your mind in game.That is a rare and valuable gift which makes all his work rewarding for the poker…

Buy me if you want to win money playing poker. I’d been a member of a training site focusing on GTO poker for 2 years,but I’ve got to say this book tells you a lot more in 238 pages about how to win money playing poker.Unless you’re playing against poker wizards,being able to use a simple,almost systematic set of “rules”, these plays will result in villians at the table being genuinely scared to play pots with you.

Very practical! A brilliant handbook for learning Alex’s fundamentals. Very clearly presented and will likely at least pay for itself so doesn’t really cost anything…:)
