About this course:

Poker (and No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em in particular) has been gaining a lot of publicity lately through media such as ESPN. In this intermediate (non-beginner's) class, we do assume prior knowledge of the basic rules and then we concentrate on expanding from there. More specifically we work on various strategy topics such as, opening charts, bet sizing, hand reading, odds, popular misconceptions and others. We also dedicate at least an hour each week playing the game and applying the concepts real-time. The course is designed for retaking as long as you have knowledge of the basics (rules, structure, and betting, etc.)

Spring 2019 Schedule
