# 3 Mechanics To MASTER Preflop Poker Strategy

Poker Tips Video Source & Information:

In this poker video Jonathan Little will be teaching you 3 mechanics to master your preflop poker strategy!

Preflop poker is not about memorizing exact ranges and trying to replicate it perfectly! It’s about having good fundamentals and good preflop mechanics!

In this poker webinar, you’re going to learn:
o Preflop Raise First-In Mechanics
o 3-Betting Mechanics
o Preflop Tips For Short Stack Play

Remember the later your position the more you should be raising first in (RFI). Most people are too loose in early position and too tight in late position. When you are playing deep stacked poker you especially want to focus on getting to see flops in position.

Jonathan teaches you the difference between linear and polarized ranges and when to use them effectively against certain opponents.

All of the pretty hands (suited connectors etc) are great to stack your opponents when you are deep stacked will go down in value the shorter the effective stack becomes. When playing a shorter stack it is much more important to make top pair and to be willing to stack off with it. Play more hands with high cards in them both with RFIs and 3-bets.

Wow only 8 minutes in and learned a lot! Apparently for rfi from the button I was way too tight vs. most of low stakes opponents.

TBH it felt a little nitty and i thought i was getting wide rgi from the button with 45 suited lol.

Thanks Johnathan.

Been listening to your podcasts on Podbean via my iPhone. Love all the info and the manner of which you share it. I really like it when you answer a question and not 15 seconds later someone asks you the same question. Looking forward to becoming a premium Poker Coaching student soon. I figured that I can't afford not to. Keep up the great work Jonathan.

1, Find a game you can crush
2. Play it a ton
3. Manage your bankroll

In the past I had immediate success with everything I learned from this Chanel. But the past several weeks I have hit a lull. I think it’s more than just poker variance. I think it’s because all of my playing time has consisted of playing online poker with fake money.

I live in NYC so online gambling is still illegal. Having said that, I think the principles you are laying out mainly apply to players with stakes. However small it still matters.

I experience players doing all sorts of things that are completely dumbfounding, and only compound because there is no real money on the line. I know the answer from the chat will be “well no bad” and I agree. But it’s frustrating to not be able to practice what you teach in the real setting. For context I have a newborn, a full time job, and I’m saving money for a bankroll so when I do have a chance to play live cash games and tournaments I will.
