Every good player has to know how to play preflop poker well.  Playing profitable poker preflop means that you are taking good opportunities, getting out of -EV spots, and all the while setting yourself up for success postflop.  Most beginner players struggle with poker simply because they play preflop with a lack of discipline.  They are ignorant to the power of position, they don’t think ahead before making a play, they don’t consider effective stacks…or worse…they make ALL of those mistakes!  In this video I review these powerful concepts (along with others) to help you improve your preflop strategy.
