Having won his third World Series of Poker bracelet and $3,686,865 by taking down the One Drop High Roller earlier this month, Doug Polk has further cemented himself as one of the best poker players in the world, and only increased the level of demand for his Upswing Poker coaching products.

Last September, the prolific YouTuber took down a $5,200 buy-in No-Limit Hold’em High Roller event on partypoker whilst thousands watched on; but as we all know, Polk is better known for his years grinding heads-up No Limit Hold’em cash games.

He’s returned to these roots by releasing an Advanced Heads-Up Mastery Course on UpSwingPoker.com, his training site set up in collaboration with fellow high stakes pro Ryan Fee. Let’s take a look at what the course involves.

Content breakdown

The course itself consists of 28 hours of material, plus an additional six hours of analysis derived from the ‘brains versus AI’ challenge which took place earlier this year. Of course, to make that amount of content a little less intimidating, the course is split into ten different sections:

  • An overall introduction to the course
  • Preflop introduction
  • Preflop three-bet and four-bet pots
  • Postflop introduction
  • Small blind single raised pots
  • Big blind single raised pots
  • Big blind three-bet pots
  • Small blind three-bet pots
  • Four-bet pots
  • Play and explain

Each section has multiple sub-sections, and as a whole the course contains more than 80 individual videos.

Nosebleed superstars

The final section, Play and explain, is a series of 11 videos featuring Polk playing heads-up against Ben ‘Sauce123’ Sulsky, so it will undoubtedly feature some in-depth, high level thinking from the nosebleeds.

But Polk is keen to point out that only this end part of the course is structured this way. In his own words:

“It is NOT a bunch of play and explains. In fact, there are only a couple play and explain videos (from a $100/$200 HUNL match I played against Sauce last year). Instead, it is more of a walk through of all of the different branches of the game tree, with an emphasis on breaking down your combinations across all actions that are important to your strategy.”

Despite this, the course does also promise some hand history reviews from Polk’s battles against the likes of Isildur, Wilhasha, and Jungleman.

Polk’s promises

Like all training courses, customers need to know what they’re likely to take away from it after the fact. So what should a poker player expect to happen to their game having studied through the course?

According to Polk, the Advanced Heads-Up Mastery Course will give you a “leg-up” on other players, and will make you “a MUCH, MUCH better poker player”. This will be achieved by imparting more balanced HUNL ranges, that should give the customer “the confidence to sit down at ANY heads-up or six-max table and take on anyone.”
