How To MASTER Shortstack Play

17 ratings

In most tournaments we play, we will not have the big stack at the table.

In most tournaments we play, at some point, we WILL have a shortstack.

There are hundreds of ways you can misplay a shortstack, as I’ve learned through trial and error.

If you can’t play a shortstack then you won’t win poker tournaments.

Live players take too long to act. It artificially makes the blind levels shorter. Your stack will get smaller because of this.

Online the structures can be fast as well. This forces us into uncomfortable situations.

If we consistently find creative ways to detonate our tournament then we will not win nearly as much as we should.

But how can we learn to play the shortstack well? Should we just enter hundreds of tournaments and keep making mistakes for thousands of dollars?

No, this is where Mike Wasserman and I come in.

Mike is my friend who has made $1,000,000+ in PROFIT from poker tournaments.

Mike and I recently just did a 15+ hour series about how to play the short stack.

Do you want to know how well he plays a short stack?

Look at these stats from the GG Million Mike won:

Buy in: $50

Entries: 19,014

Finish: 1st

Prize: $86,243.80

You want to know what is the most incredible thing about the nearly $90,000 Mike made in one night?

He did it ALL with the shortstack.

He puts on an absolute clinic in this series. I couldn’t believe all the edges he found that even successful pros miss.

That’s why we decided to call this series:

How To MASTER Shortstack Play!

We recorded the entire series together. I keep the education fun and fast-paced, using my normal testing format.

Mike then takes each hand and shows you how you can improve your own short stack game rapidly to get results like he gets!

We are normally going to sell this package for $597, but for a limited time, you can get this entire short stack master class for $297. 

These lessons are applicable to ANY online or live tournament because ALL poker tournaments feature rapidly escalating blinds!

Do you want to keep crashing and burning with a short stack just before the bubble or right after cashing? Or do you want to WIN?

How many times have you busted a tournament and had NO IDEA how or why you busted? How many more tournaments could you win if you CONSISTENTLY avoided those situations?
