THE ONE PERCENT
This complete video series that takes the epic book "Poker’s 1%" and brings it to life. See the math behind the game and spot every place where your opponents are leaving heaps of chips on the table - and then capitalize by fighting more, folding less, and choosing more intelligent ranges with a true system for success.
Are you betting too rarely right now? Are you folding too often against double barrels? Most players have zero clue - but this course gives you clear rules to ensure your frequencies are right on track. You exploit players who bluff too much and don’t fold enough - now you can protect yourself from making those same mistakes.
How many bluffs should you double barrel the turn with? How many combos should you value bet the river with? Get answers to these questions and more, with clear rules on your value-to-bluff ratios. Not only will you continue a mathematically-correct amount of the time - but you’ll have the right number of bluffs to keep your opponents guessing.
Once your frequencies are dialed in, the rest is down to range refinement. Learn exactly which combos you should bluff with, which hands semi-bluff the best, how to play Ace-high, and how to protect your checking ranges. This just sharpens the blade on your newly minted strategy that your opponents won’t be able to handle.
What Is The One Percent?
These are just some of the things you will learn in this video course...
Is This Course For You?
Are you part of the 99% that could benefit from the 1%?
Everything discussed in this course applies to cash game players of any limit, at any venue, regardless of the number of players dealt in. That means live $1/$2 players, 50NL 6max players, and 200NL HU players. All of the examples are from live cash games ($1/$2 and $2/$5), but the overarching concepts are universal since the no-limit poker math is consistent throughout.
Players looking to move up, and thus going to war with a larger density of strong opponents, will get extra value from this series as protecting your own frequencies becomes a primary concern against strong players.
Truth be told, if I had to learn poker from scratch today, this would be the first course I turn to. A frequency-first approach builds the proper foundation for a correct strategy. Once you have this down, layering in tells & hand reading allows you to optimize and exploit with further precision. But frequencies come first - as you’ll soon find out.
A balanced course to help you balance your strategy...

The One Percent
Video Series Table Of Contents
1. Breaking Apart Your Flawed Strategy
Concepts include common leaks that players have (and that you almost certainly have too!), two simple rules to help you keep your strategy in order, and clear answers to the common objections of this style.
2. The 70% Model
Get guided through the 70% model and its visual element - the pyramid. Concepts include how frequencies create these pyramids, common pyramid issues most players have, jagged vs smooth edges, and tips for exploiting players who have pyramid issues.
3. Branching Your Ranges & Exceptions
Explore situations where the initiative changes hands. By understanding branching, and when pyramids will naturally split, you can more fully prepare your ranges to retain smooth sides for the entirety of the hand. This video also explores some common pyramid exceptions and additions that will help give you a well-rounded understanding of this powerful model.
4. Applying The 70% Model
See how an actual hand gets broken down using the 70% model. This video moves fast, but shows you how to build your ranges with logic and ensure your continuance percentages are high enough.
5. Bluffing & Value Betting Ratios
Learn how value:bluff ratios factor into your betting and raising frequencies. See how the 2:1, 1:1, 1:2 ratios work, what that actually looks like in combo form, and get taken through a longform example to see it all in action.
6. 5 Common Errors
We dissect 5 of the most common frequency errors that you will see in pretty much every session you play. Concepts include folding vs. small raises, river raising ranges, monotone boards, and more. Spot the leaks, exploit the leaks, and patch any of these leaks that you might have!
7. The Good/Bad/Non Event Concept
Check out the good, bad, and non-event framework. By correctly identifying if events are good, bad, or normal you can quickly deduce if your own frequencies should bend up or down. Then take this a step further to attack regs who don't properly adjust their frequencies when the event dictates it.
8. Refining Your Hand Selection
Now that you know how often you should be continuing, learn how to select the right combos that set you up for success.
9. What If You Get Raised?
Sometimes your opponent actually has the guts to raise you - that's fine. See how your ranges adjust and frequencies shake out by folding less and forcing your opponent to show up with a real hand.
10. How Should You Be Raising?
Aggression is beautiful, but aggression with proper ranges is even better. Learn how to grab the initiative by raising with the right hands at the right time.
11. Q&A *BONUS*
After releasing this course, I got a heap of questions from students. So I answered a bunch of them and went into further depth about things like multiway pots, rule breaking, reads, etc.
What Are Other One Percenters Saying?
"This course has been one of the most defining experiences in my 7 years of ongoing poker education. This is a must if you want to be the first red corpuscle on the tip of the strategic spear of poker. James Sweeney will challenge you to question your own game and take you to a new level of cognition."
