PLO MTT & Short Stack Foundations

This is the step by step course that will teach you how to play PLO MTTs and short stack cash games profitably.

...even if you've never played a hand of PLO in your life.

...even if you've played PLO for a while but can't seem to turn a profit.

...and even if you're winning at small stakes PLO but always struggle at higher stakes.

Everything will be broken down for you street by street, in easy to study chapters full of presentations explaining different PLO theories and concepts. Then I show you how to apply those skills using real hand examples.

Highlights include...

Pre-flop cheat sheet:

Pre-flop is where it all starts, and also where it all ends for a lot of players because of big mistakes that are made that they can't recover from. With this downloadable sheet, you'll instantly know:

-Exactly what hands to open from each position

-What to 3-bet against different openers

-Good hands to cold-call with

-Which hands to defend in the blinds

Presentations broken down street by street:

After coaching plenty of NL players in PLO, I've realized that most of them learn and improve the most the concepts and theories are presented in a street by street format. All the concepts and theories are broken down in different modules for each street, starting with pre-flop.

Detailed hand examples:

Explaining a concept in-depth isn't enough. To go with the theory side of the presentations, you'll get detailed breakdowns of different hands to help you truly understand the theory, so you know exactly when to use it and what to do.

Full MTT video review:

I go over every single hand played from a $320 MTT on Pokerstars so you can see how to apply everything that you'll learn in the course. My stack size changes throughout the 382 hands so you'll see how to adjust your play style at different effective stack sizes, which is crucial to playing both MTTs and cash games.


"Sean Kapul's Results can be found HERE"

“Having played poker professionally for over ten years and really been slacking for the last couple I decided 2016 was a year where I either needed to start taking things seriously again or try something new. I got in touch with Sean for coaching and it's turned out to be a great decision - he instantly re-ignited my enthusiasm and love for the game and got me thinking about poker again.

We are coming to the end of the ten session block package and throughout he has been nothing but professional, courteous and available whenever I have a question. On top of that he's really easy going and a breeze to get along with.

He's considerably improved my winrate by pointing out some leaks, discussing theory and how to exploit certain player types but more importantly he's got me excited to play poker again and have the confidence to battle in today's tough games.” -Gregor, mid-stakes PLO pro

    "As someone who has experienced Sean's coaching first hand, I cannot recommend him highly enough. He is great at both finding leaks and helping to plug them fast, and I've personally experienced a marked improvement in my game since receiving coaching from him.
    He really has a knack for teaching complex concepts in a way that is easy to understand, and honestly, anyone purchasing a 10 class pack is getting an absolute steal. Sean is also really easy to get along with, which is a big bonus!" - Jamie, mid-stakes PLO pro

    "Although I've been playing PLO professionally for 5 years, the last months weren't good for me, as I was struggling to breakeven at PLO100. After a disastrous January (about 90 buyins down), I decided to get Sean's coaching.
    Since the first class, he helped me fix a lot of leaks in my game. He is really good at explaining his line of thought and is always available to comment on hands by email or Skype.
    I moved down to PLO50 and reduced my number of tables in order to field test the changes in my game and regain my confidence and results couldn't have been better. I played 56k hands and finished with 5.88bb/100 (6.51 EV bb/100) winrate.
    I am really looking forward to the remaining classes, as I feel it will help improve my game more and more." - Ivan, PLO pro

    “I have been working with Sean for a few weeks now. He has a really good understanding of PLO and does well to communicate it to his student. His initial database review is extremely valuable on its own. Once he discovered my leaks, each class has been designed to improve those areas/game. He has a strong understanding of HEM2 and PPT, which has helped me study more efficiently outside of his coaching. He is also available if you want advice on hands you have played recently. I highly recommend him if you want to take your PLO to a new level.” -Kevin, mid-stakes PLO pro
