T.J. Murphy WSOP Bracelet Winner: 📸 Rachel Kay Winter

Week 2 of the WSOP brought our 1st WSOP Bracelet of the Series!

Long-time LearnWPT Student Timothy "T.J." Murphy took home his first WSOP Bracelet outlasting a huge field of 4,732 runners and banked an impressive $368,977 for the win.

T.J. roared into the Final Table as the chip leader and showed zero fear while using his huge stack to eliminate 6 of the 8 remaining players on his way to victory. Entering heads up play with a big chip advantage, it only took a few hands for T.J. to finish it out.

T.J. puts in the work everyday on LearnWPT.com and we are so happy to see it paying off! He’s submitted hundreds of hands to our Ask A Pro forum for analysis and trains constantly on the WPT GTO Trainer. Most people don't get to see all of the work and study a Student puts in behind the scenes, they just see the result. T.J. worked hard for this and his dominating performance showed it 👏.

🏆 LearnWPT Student T.J. Murphy WON the WSOP Deepstack No-Limit Hold'em Tournament!

Congratulations T.J. on Winning Your 1st WSOP Bracelet 🥂

Team LearnWPT Sees Success at The WPT World Championship

The LearnWPT Family had a very exciting (and profitable) week at the WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas!

WPT-World-Championship-Wynn-Las-Vegas-2023

The second ever WPT® World Championship Festival at Wynn Las Vegas saw record breaking prize pools, exciting off the felt activities, and set the standard for all future poker festivals. Almost every poker event crushed the guaranteed prize pools and we saw multiple players walk away with over $1,000,000 for their efforts.

The LearnWPT Team capped off the festival with huge results seeing Member Bob Buckenmeyer making the WPT Prime Championship Final Table and Instructor Andrew Lichtenberger final tabling the flagship $40M GTD WPT World Championship.

JOIN US IN CELEBRATING...

WPT-Prime-Final-Table-Bob-Buckenmayer

Long-time LearnWPT Member Bob Buckenmayer navigated the record-breaking field of over 10,500 entrants in the $1,100 buy-in WPT Prime Championship at Wynn Las Vegas to eventually bow out in 5th place for a massive 6-figure score of $380,000.

WPT-Prime-Wynn-Championship-Bob-Buckenmayer-5th-Place

We could not be more proud of how Bob battled on the felt and we're excited to see what he accomplishes next. As a student of LearnWPT since our start, Bob has demonstrated great skill and dedication to playing his best poker and we're extremely proud of his success.

This isn't the first time Bob has made a deep run in a massive field poker tournament and we know it won’t be the last time we see him at a final table battling with a WPT Championship on the line.

Help us in congratulating Bob!

WPT-World-Championship-Final-Table-2023

It’s been quite the amazing 2023 for Andrew "LuckyChewy" Lichtenberger and his performance in last night's exciting $40 Million GTD WPT World Championship at Wynn Las Vegas Final Table was a great way to finish out the year. Chewy’s masterful performance vs a stacked Final Table netted him a whopping $2,798,700 for finishing in 3rd place out of a massive field of 3,805 entries.

We are grateful to have LuckyChewy in the LearnWPT Family and are so happy for his success.

WSOP Week 6 Achievements

Week 6 of the WSOP began with the record-shattering Main Event!

The record for the largest WSOP Main Event field in its 54-year history was broken with a total of 10,043 entries. The event generated a total prize pool of $93,399,900, smashing the previous record of $82,512,162 set in 2006 that had a total of 8,773 entrants.

LearnWPT Instructor and WPT Commentator Tony Dunst battled and played like the Champion he is but fell just short in his quest to secure his 3rd WSOP Bracelet after getting knocked out when his straight was beat by a straight flush sending Tony out in 66th place on Day 6.

As always Tony went out with class and style. We are extremely proud to have Tony as part of Team LearnWPT and can't wait to cheer on his next remarkable performance on the felt.

LearnWPT Student Bryant Getting Results...

LearnWPT Platinum Member and Live Workshop Student Bryant Morrison has been putting in the work and seeing big results at the poker tables!

Bryant recently conquered a field of 322 players to win his first WSOP Circuit Ring in the Seniors Event at the Choctaw Durant stop.

The $250 buy-in tournament generated a $64,400 prize-pool and as victor, Bryant was awarded $13,948 and a coveted World Series of Poker gold Ring.

We asked Bryant about his recent win, how LearnWPT has helped his game, and more…

Bryant Morrision - WSOP Ring win - optmizd.jpg

LearnWPT: Do you play many live tournaments? Why did you pick this specific event to play?

Bryant: I only play live tournaments but I practice at LearnWPT.com using the GTO trainer more and more now. I do not play cash games to speak of unless I am waiting for a tournament to start.

I chose the Choctaw event because it fit my schedule during the Christmas break. I play WSOP in the summer, again on break, and this circuit event was close enough to drive to.

LearnWPT: You’ve attended two LearnWPT Live Workshops. How would you say these live events have helped your game?

Bryant: Both workshops added to my understanding of the game on a theoretical level. I constantly refer to handouts even now as I develop a playing strategy for different situations. Being able to ask questions and listen to other player's questions greatly increased my knowledge of the game. The best time for learning at the second workshop was the laboratory work where we all played our hands openly with the instructors advising and critiquing our play. That one day is worth all the money in [my] opinion.

Bellagio - Chewy - Bryant.jpg


The greatest take away from both workshops was the fact that they made me reconsider what my game was doing. Then, after working at home to unscramble my brain, my game would improve to a better understanding of certain aspects of the game that I was repeatedly seeing at the tables.

LearnWPT: How often do you use LearnWPT.com to improve your game? What specific features do you like about the online training site?

Bryant: About 6 weeks before I go to a tournament setting I begin to use LearnWPT.com extensively, every day if possible. I am not a professional so I have to plan when I can play and that includes when I can practice as well. Right now I only play at 2 times a year: WSOP summer and any circuit events during Christmas break. I might add Spring Break this year to that schedule since there are now more WSOP circuit events planned.

I have created my own constantly updated index of all the episodes so that I can drill into any specific element of poker. Using this index I can review cbetting, 3rd bullets, stack to pot ratios, speculative calling, exceptions to these rules, and many other situations that might confuse me at the table. Having these episodes available 24/7 at my beck and call has proved tremendously useful to keeping my play sharp. If I had to learn this at the tables through actual play I would never be where I am now.

Bryant quote blue 2.png


This most useful element of the website has been the addition of the GTO trainer. I did not enjoy it at first, constantly being graded down with losing points for errors, until I understood the tool’s usefulness. I am not supposed to win; I am supposed to develop a pattern of play that minimizes my losses in each different scenario.

Then, later at the tables, when I recognize the same situation, I will know the proper move based on stack size, position, stack to pot ratio, and the other factors taught at the workshops. Then it is up to me to decide whether it is the proper moment to DEVIATE from perfect play to maximize my exploitation of the situation. It is at that moment in the tournament that the training pays off: you realize your opponent is just not that good after all. Viola! The chips slide your way. Next hand please!

The GTO trainer never makes a mistake so you know you are learning the proper action EVERY TIME. Build knowledge off of that and table play becomes much more readable.

LearnWPT: Can you name a few specific skills or techniques from the LearnWPT game plan that helped you win this WSOP ring? Can you talk about how or why they helped?

Bryant: One of the basic skills reinforced at LearnWPT.com and the workshops is thinking of stack size as BBs and adjusting your play accordingly. Knowing where you are in the tournament helps make decisions so much easier. If it is time to shove all in with A2o (my winning hand) then make the play.

In my specific winning hand my opponent had 8 bbs left... I knew he had to be pushing ALL IN with wide open ranges so when I had the A and was only risking a few more bbs to end the tourney my second card was less relevant to me. A in the window and the ring was mine.

Listen to what Bryant had to say back in 2018 during his first LearnWPT Live Workshop...

I would never have thought like that before LearnWPT. My cards would have been the most important item in my equation. Instead, looking at the stack sizes, position, time, stack to pot ratio, reads, and the reward my call with a weak A was practically automatic. Move the clock back and his stack is larger proportionately so the call would be less likely but with only those few bbs left it was an opportunity I could not pass up. I doubt I would ever have thought about poker like this without training at LearnWPT.com.

LearnWPT: $13,948 for a $250 buy-in is an impressive return on investment. Do you have any plans for future tournaments? Where will we see you next?

Bryant: Future tournaments will be WSOP summer events that fit my schedule. The money is not the motivation; the competition is. $1000 buy-in at WSOP returns hundreds of thousands and the higher events, with higher skill levels, return more. The math is the same for ROI but the “life changing” amounts are not going to appear for me. I am already settled into the retirement life style, just not completely yet.

Look for me at WSOP in the summer events but hopefully you won’t recognize me and future I am just an old timer, the OMC type, who is just playing his cards as he gets them. ABC with a little luck, that’s what I want you to see when you see me. Meanwhile, back at LearnWPT.com I will have put in multiple hour days on the trainer, updated my index, reviewed and drilled certain elements, attended another workshop (probably, based on schedule), and hopefully added a few more tools to my war chest.

LearnWPT: Do you have any advice for players trying to learn and improve their No-Limit Hold’em game?

Bryant: The key to improving is to actually use the tools you have. Playing is one way but it is slow, expensive, and time consuming. The GTO trainer is on all the time and is free with unlimited use when you buy into the monthly program. You can even but in, practice, play, resign and come back later when you plan on playing your next tournament with no penalty. Thus, you can plan your own time instead of having the tournament schedules run your life. Your wife and family will appreciate your presence in the “off” seasons.

Bryant blue qt 1.png


While I also suggest a workshop they are expensive and will “break your game” until you recollect your thoughts and adjust to what the new information gives you. Well worth the time and money but be prepared to have at least a week off after the workshop to work the material into your game before you play. Now I may be slow and perhaps you can adjust faster than this poor old man but you do need some time to change your game.

LearnWPT: Aside from poker, what else do you do for fun?

Bryant: Ahhh… the back-story, personal part of this interview. As a window into my life let me summarize by saying that in my long life I have not been idle. I have practiced law, taught history (still doing this one), piloted my own aircrafts with a multi-engine instrument commercial license, instructed accelerated freefall skydiving with over 1,000 jumps, scuba dived to a depth of 350 feet on a salvage attempt, sailed the Caribbean as a bareboat charter captain, raced downhill slalom (very briefly), written 6 books (4 published), traded commodities, played golf down to a 12 handicap, raised 2 children to be better than me, kept a wife 12 years younger than me happy for the past 30 years, and besides just playing poker I now find pleasure in studying and practicing the game. And I’m not done yet!

Congratulations


As an educator, Bryant understands the importance of study, the effort needed to improve your game, and mental fortitude to be successful in poker and life.

Bryant is a true student of the game and we couldn’t be more proud of his accomplishment. We can't wait to see what is in store next for Bryant.

LearnWPT Members Team Roberts Roll Up Big Finishes!

LearnWPT Students Scott and Lisa Roberts have been on a tear at the poker tables in recent months adding on to their impressive combined $125,000 in tournament winnings.

The World Poker Tour recently interviewed and featured Team Roberts in an article highlighting their phenomenal summer.

Students - Scott and Lisa.jpg

By Sean Chaffin

The couple that plays together, stays together. At least that’s the case for Scott and Lisa Roberts. This poker-playing pair have been married 37 years and is affectionately known as Team Roberts. The recreational players from Atlanta, Georgia, have been on a tear at the poker tables in recent months – and credit much of their success to strategies and techniques they’ve learned attending several LearnWPT events.

The Roberts have apparently been good students. Scott, 62, works as a real estate investor and has more than $89,000 in live tournament winnings. Lisa, 63, is a retired personal trainer and has $35,000 in tournament winnings.

For Scott and Lisa, working with LearnWPT has definitely transferred to the tables. They now hope to keep that mojo going.

Poker Power Couple

It was an especially nice September for Team Roberts at the WSOP Circuit stop at Seminole Coconut Creek in Florida where Scott won a $400 event for $6,994. Lisa notched a runner-up finish in a $250 seniors event for $5,284 and took sixth in a $600 turbo for $2,100.

Scott Lisa - FB (4) adjusted.jpg

“It was very frustrating coming in second,” she says laughing. “But I was very happy.”

At the turbo final table, Lisa was also joined by Scott and he took runner-up for $8,096. He followed up the runner-up finish with yet another second-place finish in a $250 DeepStack event for $4,486.

In total, Scott finished with four cashes for $20,182 and was named the player of the series. His background as a LearnWPT student certainly helped, he says, and everything seemed to come together.

“It was one of those times where I was using moves to make moves and running well too,” he says. “When those two go together you can be unstoppable. It was just a really good trip.”

The couple, who have two grown children and a grandchild on the way, have family in the area and spent some time with them during the trip. Scott didn’t even realize he was in contention to be casino champion.

“We didn’t play a lot of the events just because we were seeing family,” he says. “We skipped several events, but if I had known I was in contention I definitely would have played a few more.”

Scott began playing poker in 2005 with some friends and online. He cashed in smaller tournaments and then won a $235 event in Las Vegas in 2017 for $20,108 followed by another big win a year later for $11,348.

Lisa wasn’t into the game like her husband however, and it took her a while to appreciate poker.

“I’d sit behind him when I was done playing Blackjack after losing money,” she says. “The TV was always on the poker channel [the WPT included], and I wasn’t really watching him play, but I started knowing all the players because of all the little vignettes they ran about them. Scott would come over while he was playing online and say, ‘Look I have such and such hand. What do you think the nuts would be right now?’”

Lisa would answer and often would be correct. She didn’t have much interest in the game but seemed to be picking it up. To her, the game just looked boring with the people looking “all serious and unfriendly.”

One night at a casino, Lisa planned to play Blackjack but her husband convinced her to take a seat at the tables. That first night she played Limit Hold’em holding a card with the ranking of hands.

“I won four hands in a row at one point,” she says. “I couldn’t even stack them fast enough because I didn’t know how to handle chips. I was so excited.”

She left the tables with some winnings, and some confidence. Her poker life took off from there – and that hand ranking card hasn’t been needed since.

Hitting the Books and Crushing the Tables

The Roberts figured out early that working on their game with some outside help would be a good idea. Team Roberts has attended several LearnWPT events, spending many hours with instructors Nick Binger and Andrew Lichtenberger.

Bellagio - May Class photo.jpg

“I took a couple classes and realized how much I didn’t know,” Scott says. “Then we took one together with Nick and it just kind of opened our eyes up. It was just incredible how different the pros play from how we were playing.”

“After the first day, I was thinking, ‘This guy’s nuts. This is not going to work. Why did we take this class?’”

However, they stuck it out for the second day of training. The concepts Binger was presenting began making more sense. They headed to the Venetian that night and used some strategies they’d been taught at the tables. One thing Binger told the couple to practice in a tournament or two was raising on the button every time action folded to them, no matter what cards they had. If one of the blinds three-bet, he told them to four-bet. This overly aggressive strategy would take them out of their comfort zone of passive play.

“I told him I was going to need a few drinks before I played the tournament,” he says.

The coaching worked and Lisa made the final table that night and they won $10,000 playing tournaments that week.

Scott Lisa - FB (2) adjusted.jpg


“I was very unaggressive,” Lisa says of her play before attending LearnWPT events. “I didn’t know what to do with anything. I’d limp, call, and maybe I’d raise. For me, I learned when to be aggressive and when to feel okay with being aggressive in the right situation regardless of your cards sometimes. I didn’t have any of that in my arsenal – I had no arsenal.”

For Scott, opening hand ranges was an idea he had never much considered. He may have put a player on a certain hand but had trouble adjusting his game to those kinds of scenarios.

The new concepts made his game more complex. Team Roberts also learned more about playing in position to maximize profits. They’ve gone on to take more advanced classes with each session building on others. The lab days are a particular favorite of theirs, where a group plays at a table and break down hands played with instructors.

“It ties everything together from what you learned the two days before in the class,” Scott says.

Would they recommend LearnWPT to other players?

“If they’re people we play against, definitely not,” Scott says laughing.

Scott Lisa - FB (3).jpg

Lisa adds: “I think it is the best poker money that we’ve ever spent. I know we were hesitant the first time, but it made major changes for us as far as winning. It’s an incredible class. You don’t really know what you don’t know until you take it.”

As recreational players, they try to find events that fit in Scott’s schedule running his real estate business. He plans to retire within the next five years and then the Roberts will play even more including some WPT tournaments. In the meantime, they plan on keeping their recent success going, and continue working on their game with LearnWPT sessions.

As Lisa notes: “There’s always more to learn.”

LearnWPT Member Sue Winning WSOP Gold!

Thousands of poker players descended on the Rio in Las Vegas for 6 weeks of action during the 50th World Series of Poker looking to win a prestigious WSOP Bracelet (and some cash too).

LearnWPT Member Susan Faber was one of those players there to win her first WSOP bracelet.

And guess what? SHE DID!

Sue emerged as the victor in the $500 buy-in Salute to Warriors No-Limit Hold’em event* defeating the field of 1,723 entries and earning $121,161 in the process.

Sue, a 71-year-old tax accountant and recreational poker player, was only woman to win an “open” No-Limit Hold'em event this series.

We recently asked Sue about her WSOP experience, her love of the game, and more…


Sue Faber - WSOP Bracelet cropped - optmzd.jpg

LearnWPT: What do you enjoy most about playing poker? How did you get started playing No-Limit Texas Hold’em?

Sue: I started playing poker when my son got me involved in playing on line poker about 10 years ago. I realized I was far behind the other players on the net and started looking for classes I could take to get better. I found that WPT was teaching classes in Las Vegas and traveled there to participate. I took the beginners class and the advance class.

The thing I enjoy the most about playing poker is of course winning but also the social aspect. I have met so many nice people both dealers and people playing the game and have made many good friends.

LearnWPT: Is poker a hobby or do you have more lofty goals for your poker career?

Sue: Poker is a hobby. I would love to play more in live events and plan to do that in 2020.

LearnWPT: Do you play many live tournaments? Why did you pick this specific WSOP event to Play?

Sue: I only play live events now. I picked this event because it was a salute to warriors and I have so much respect and thanks to give to the men and women that serve. My husband also served in the Army.

*According to a report from the WSOP, the funds raised will support the roughly 100,000 U.S. troops and their families. A portion of each buy-in went to the USO. The event raised $43,075 for the charity, which will be used to fund USO projects throughout Southern Nevada.

LearnWPT: How did it make you feel to be playing on the big stage under the lights and on live stream? Were you nervous? How did it feel to have your family and friends there to watch?

Sue: It was definitely an experience of a lifetime it seemed unreal. I was not nervous because I was so concentrated on the game.

I loved having family and friends there to watch and it was an experience of a lifetime for my husband also he was so proud of me.

LearnWPT: How often do you use LearnWPT.com to improve you game? What specific Member Features do you like about the online training site?

Sue: I use LearnWPT weekly to review past episodes or the new ones that are sent to me.

I love the on-line training site because I can go back and review any aspect of the game I want to at any time. The episodes are so timely and involve so many things that I can add to my game.

LearnWPT: Can you name 3 specific skills or techniques from the LearnWPT.com game plan that helped you win this WSOP bracelet? Can you talk about how or why they helped?

Sue: Learning and memorizing the opening hand ranges helps me to know what cards to play in the position I am in and narrowing what cards my opponents have in their positions.

Knowing when a flop is dry or coordinated and continuation betting after the flop. Short Stack play really helped at the final table.

The mental game with Jared Tendler helped me come back from large losses.

LearnWPT: $121,000 for a $500 investment is a pretty amazing payday. Any big plans for the money?

Sue: $10,000 of it will be saved for the main event next year. I would like to go on a cruise and do some remodeling to my home.

LearnWPT: Aside from poker, what else do you do for fun?

Sue: I love to spend time with my two grandchildren.

LearnWPT: Anything else you’d like to add about your experience?

Sue: I am so glad I joined LearnWPT.com which gave me the skills and confidence to win the bracelet at the WSOP this year.


Sue dominated the Final Table and we couldn’t be more proud of her and her accomplishment! You can read more about Sue’s road to victory on the WSOP Updates page or watch the replay on CBS All access.
