FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What types of poker does the Lab cover?
The Lab covers ALL forms of No Limit Hold'em.
This includes strategy for tournaments, 6-max and 9-handed cash games, Zoom games, and live poker.
How often do you release new content?
Every week a new Play & Explain video is added to the course. New learning modules (which are essentially lessons) are released on a monthly basis.
Why should I take this Upswing Lab course?
Whether you're a beginner, an advanced player, or somewhere in between, the Lab has a wealth of information that will help you improve your skills and, most importantly, your bottom line.
We've been adding new content to the Lab on a weekly basis for more than 3 years, and you get access to all of it when you join.
How much content is in the Lab and how long does it take to complete?
The fundamental section of the Lab contains around 12 hours of content, which can easily be consumed in less than a month.
In total, the Lab contains 250+ hours of content, most of which is "optional" depending on the game type you play (e.g. you don't need to watch the Live Poker section if you play online).
Can I try the Lab before buying?
We do not offer a free trial. However, you can try the Lab risk-free with our 30-day money back guarantee. If you aren't satisfied, contact our support team and we'll make it right.
What if I want to cancel? Am I locked into a contract?
As a member, you can cancel anytime. While we hope you stay forever, we hate contracts and would never impose them on our members.
Does the Lab contain valuable content for advanced players?
Short answer: Yes, there are many advanced sections and videos in the Lab.
Long answer: When the Lab was released in 2016, the focus was on helping beginner and intermediate poker players. However, the course has been getting progressively more advanced as new content is added every month.
If you're an advanced player, you will likely find the earliest section of the Lab to be too fundamental, but all you have to do is skip that section to find the super valuable content you're looking for.
Once I become a member, where should I start?
Before you do anything else, you need to join the Upswing members-only community and ask ONE burning poker question. Then, dive into the Lab Core Strategy section and start learning a fundamentally sound strategy that wins.
If you're already an advanced player, skip to the Beyond Core Strategy section to pick up cutting-edge tactics to add to your game.
