If you’ve ever wanted to learn poker strategy from Phil Ivey – and who hasn’t – you now have that opportunity with his recently released MasterClass.

Ivey becomes the second superstar to teach his secrets in a MasterClass course. Daniel Negreanu was the first to do so. You’ve likely seen his ad on YouTube videos non-stop the past six months.

Get Inside the Brain of Phil Ivey

Ivey’s course is available in 11 separate lessons. You can purchase his individual class for $90 or get an All-Access pass to 55-plus instructors, including Negreanu, for $180 per year. The latter is, without question, the best value.

By purchasing the All-Access package, you will also learn how to play chess from Gary Kasparov, shoot a jump shot from NBA champion Steph Curry, learn to cook from celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, and much more.

David Roger, co-founder and CEO of MasterClass, told Yahoo News that Ivey’s course “provides a view into his strategy that he’s never shared before.”

Ivey, who at age 38 became the youngest player to win 10 WSOP bracelets, is arguably the best poker player in history. But he rarely talks poker strategy. He’s always preferred keeping his secrets to himself so as to not help his opponents figure out what he’s doing at the poker table. So, this is a rare opportunity for players to get inside the mind of someone of his caliber.

What the Course Entails

Ivey’s course includes 11 strategy lessons. You also get a class workbook and can study on your own schedule. All the coursework is done from the comfort of your own home. You can access the course at any time of day.

The first lesson is on Phil’s journey to poker greatness. He also explains why he’s finally opening up about his poker game.

In the following nine lessons, Ivey teaches poker strategy. That includes pre-flop and post-flop play, bluffing tactics, mental game, and reading tells.

The final lesson is perhaps the most valuable, especially to inexperienced players. Phil discusses the pitfalls of early success and how he’s grown over the past 25 years playing the game.

Phil Ivey is as qualified to teach such a course as anyone. He’s a 10-time WSOP bracelet winner and has more than $26 million in career tournament cashes. And that doesn’t even include the millions he’s won playing the highest stakes cash games in the world.

I will wait the releases because, in my opinion, he can just be lending his name. I can imagine players like negreanu, Ivey and any high level poker pro stoping their activities to prepare their classes. Beyond I can’t believe they feel tempted to reveal their magic secrets. But I have faith even.

Frnandoh it was done in an interview style, so masterclass asks strong questions and the pros (ivey, negreanu) respond. They’re actually really good at the interviewing and collect some great insight from the pros. They shared a lot more than I expected they would, the age of honesty is finally here 🙂
