Wouldn’t it be nice to get access to a super high roller’s strategy to use in poker tournaments you play?
Nick Petrangelo has teamed up with Upswing to bring you Winning Poker Tournaments, an in-depth training course that is available right here, right now!
Nick is widely regarded as one of the best live and online tournament players in the world, and his stats back that up:
- $15,970,425 in live cashes
- $6,891,560 in online cashes with about $1,400,000 profit — under the names caecilius (PokerStars) and canofcorn22 (Full Tilt)
- He’s won a second WSOP and cashed for $5,700,000 in the past 5 months
Nothing is held back by Nick in this course, and I’m excited to show you exactly what is inside. But first, let’s watch a couple sneak peek clips so you can get a preview of Nick’s easy to understand teaching style.
Note: Nick also worked hard to create ICM Unmasked. This bonus course covers how to adjust your play when you’re playing for a prize pool and not just chips (like on the bubble or near a pay jump).
ICM Unmasked costs $299. Members of Winning Poker Tournaments get $200 off and pay just $99.
I’ve previewed the contents of ICM Unmasked in this article as well.

What’s inside Winning Poker Tournaments with Nick Petrangelo?
The course’s 27 hours of video content is divided into four sections. Let’s take a look at each of them.
Introduction (4 videos)
Nick introduces himself and gives you a quick rundown of the course. Then he teaches you how to learn from and think about poker solvers so you are prepared for the later sections, which are heavily focused on solver findings.
- Course Intro (9:32)
- Intro to Solvers (19:08)
- Intro to Pio (28:25)
- Intro to Pio Pt 2 (17:50)
(Don’t worry, you don’t have to learn how to use a solver yourself to learn from Nick’s course — though it can’t hurt.)

Nick shares his personal Preflop Mastersheet with 250+ charts and runs through a few of them to show you how to use it.

Winning Poker Tournaments costs $999 for lifetime access. Nick’s ICM Unmasked course costs $299, but you get $200 off if you become a Winning Poker Tournaments member first.
Q. Is there a members-only group?
Yes. All members get access to Nick’s private Facebook group, where you can ask questions and discuss the course content with fellow tournament players.
Q. Is the course appropriate for new players?
Players at most skill levels will benefit greatly from watching Winning Poker Tournaments. That said, if you’re just getting started playing poker, you’re better off going with the Upswing Lab until you understand the basics.

Yes! Master Class members can get $300 off the new course by emailing me (Mike Brady) at [email protected].
Q. What is the difference between this course and Tournament Master Class?
Since this course is taught by a different player, the overarching strategy is different in most ways — the strategy in Winning Poker Tournaments being more cutting-edge and solver-based. Some of the differences are big (such as the preflop ranges) and others are subtle (such as the c-betting size on certain ace-high boards).
