What’s Inside the New Module
Module Length: 2 hours and 2 Minutes
- Playing In-Position Versus the Big Blind
Tim gets the module started by looking at how the solver likes to c-bet when facing a Big Blind defender in a single raised pot. To understand how to exploit our opponents we first need to look at the theoretical approach and understand why the solver likes to do what it does.
- Big Blind Facing C-bet
After looking at how we should attack the Big Blind with c-bets, we now flip the script and study how the Big Blind likes to respond to aggression from the in position player.

- Turn Barreling
Over the next couple of videos in the module, Tim looks at a variety of turn cards and details how certain cards affect our strategy. How do we play when a fourth flush card hits? What about an offsuit ace? Having a notion of how you will adjust your play on future streets is a critical component of a strong poker strategy.
- Bet-Check Lines
To barrel or not to barrel? Tim runs through a variety of situations where checking back the turn makes a lot of sense, giving viewers an understanding of not only when to bet, but when to stop betting. Understand why the solver likes to barrel, as well as the reasons it likes to check back and see the river.
- Playing 3-Bet Pots
Over the next few videos in the module, Tim adjusts ranges to reflect a 3-bet pot and shows just how different play becomes on monotone flops. Learn who has the nut and range advantage on these boards, and how the solver likes to attack when ranges narrow. You may be surprised how different our strategy becomes!
- Potential Exploits
Now that we’ve learned the theory behind monotone boards, it’s time to look at exploits! Learn what common mistakes your opponents are making on these boards, and how you can exploit them to win the max. Tim always does a great job of showing viewers how to take the theoretical knowledge from solvers and use it to exploit opponents in-game, and this video is no exception.
