Phil’s crash course purposefully did not cover all the bases. It couldn’t. We didn’t have the time.
Instead, his program (and this post) will show how a gambling idiot (me) can magnify strengths and cover weaknesses to an absurd degree…at least for a few hours in order to win real cash.
Let’s be clear: I am not a good poker player, and perhaps you aren’t either. But that doesn’t mean you can’t win.
If you understand a few principles and follow them religiously, Lady Luck (and strategic aggression) might smile upon you. Especially if you learn how to leverage “short-stack strategy” or “heads-up play,” both of which I’ll explain.
This post has three parts:
– My video explanation – This is the actual video I sent to TV post-production. I sent similar videos for all 13 episodes (parkour, the dating game, building a business, etc.) right after we finished each week. This is nuts and bolts of how Phil helped me pull off miracles.
– My real notes from my notebook – These are PDFs of the notes I explain in the aforementioned video. For a novice or intermediate, they are only really useful once you’ve watched the video.
– Phil’s one-page cheatsheet – ‘Nuff said.
– The full TV episode (preview and links)
Let’s get started on the how-to…
