Is anyone aware of a training site / video(s) etc. that show a large number of sample boards and discuss if those boards are "wet", "dry", "coordinated", etc?

I think I have a reasonable idea of which are which, but some kind of training specifically on this would be helpful.

ie. "scary" boards to be very cautious betting. Very dry boards where a bluff might be a good idea, etc.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Hi there !

I believe you'll find this type of study or training only on poker schools that you must pay or buy a subscription free content can help you but it will be very limited... also if I'm not wrong the right approach to a study session is usually studied by position and situation for example: ''100 hand in a Open Raise pot with one caller from UTG/ UTG+1" or "3bet pots on Btn vs EP (Early Position)'' and there you will see lot of WET and Dry Boards and how to face the according to the Preflop situation...

Hope this helps you good luck!

By definition dry boards are those boards where neither of the players range usually hits the cards that they have.
6s2d2c, 7d3c3s are for example dry boards and rarely someone will have a piece on those.

Wet boards are boards that a lot of players could have a piece of it, pairs, trips, flushes, straights and draws.
Ts9s8d, 9dJdQd are wet boards where theoretically the players range hits them hard.

You can search on Youtube for free training material, but in general you should be betting less (percentage of pot) in dry boards and more in wet boards.

Broadly speaking, understanding flop texture has do do with how each players hands are effected by the flop given their precious action. Middle flops give the preflop caller the opportunity to catch up more often, and high flops favour the original raiser who will have an uncapped element that can include hands like top pairs, over pairs of even straights depending on the flop eg KJT, open raiser has pretty much all the nutted hands. om flops like 8TJ the preflop caller catches up a lot more with two pairs and trips

It's a function of matching the preflop raising range to the board texture. When someone has put in a 3-bet and called a 4-bet, and the flop comes 664 rainbow, AA (theoretically) becomes the nuts because there should be no 66, 44, or 6x calling a 4-bet preflop.

That example explains the range interaction side. The other side is the board texture being "wet", meaning coordinated.. 3 to a straight, 3 to a flush, ex. 789 of hearts is about as "wet" of a flop as there can be, vs. K82 rainbow is about as "dry" as a board can be - no flushes or straights possible.

An important feature to note with Ace high "dry" boards is the possibility of a wheel straight - ex. A35 is a dramatically different board than AK7, although we often don't realize this and play them the same with AJ, AQ, AK
