The Double Barrel Checklist

Pulling off a successful double barrel with an appropriate frequency is pretty important in today’s online no-limit hold’em games. The days of profitably playing your entire range completely straight-forward and face-up after a continuation bet have been long gone for quite a while. However, because firing the second barrel often involves building a pot without a […]

Memory in Poker

Since the release of our preflop opening ranges, both in Level 1 of CORE and as part of our ongoing GTO expansion in PRO, I’ve noticed a growing trend. In CORE, in particular, I now get frequent questions about whether subscribers should “memorize all of this” before moving on to Level 2. The follow-up question […]

Understanding Your Style – What MMA Teaches Us About Poker

I’ve been watching MMA for over 10 years at this point, and its been fascinating to watch its “meta game” evolve in similar ways to poker. At the beginning, true to its name, it started with each fighter focusing on their individual martial art; living and dying by its individual strengths and weaknesses. This is […]

Dealing With Unexpected and Crazy Plays From Your Opponents

Poker is a technical game based on probabilities. This makes it challenging to learn for a couple reasons. Let me illustrate the idea with an example. One of the biggest roadblocks to poker success is that humans have a spectacularly poor intuition for how probabilities work. This is both an impediment to developing sound strategy, […]

Poker Ranges & Range Reading

The ability to identify and read poker ranges is one of the most important skills a player can have. Poker is a game of incomplete information and we will almost never know exactly which two hole cards our opponent has. But with logical deduction and strong technical knowledge, we can build our opponent’s range and […]

Who Is SplitSuit?

Welcome to SplitSuit.com! My name is James Sweeney (although I go by SplitSuit and *Split* just the same) and I’ve been playing poker since 2004 and coaching poker since 2008. Over that time I’ve primarily played online full ring cash games (up to 200NL) and live cash games ($1/$2-$5/$10), but I’ve also played 6max, MTTs, some SNGs, and even PLO8.

I created this site back in 2008, and while the style has certainly changed many times over, the concept is still the same. To share poker strategy, centralize cash game poker material, and be one of the best poker sites to help players all over the world. While you can find a million sites online for casino reviews, ratings, opinions, games, and bonuses – all you will find here are in-depth strategy videos, guides, and products to help take your game to the next level.

Over the last 12 years, I created more than 500 poker videos, coached over 500 students, and even wrote a best-selling full ring poker book focused on gambling and winning online…so it’s been busy to say the least. With that said, take some time to explore the site, watch a free poker video, and maybe check out one of my courses. If you have any questions feel free to contact me, otherwise good luck and happy grinding!
