Mid-Stakes Mastery

11 ratings

We just added 15+ hours of content bring the total to almost 40 hours! Bryan Paris recent won the GG Millions for over $60,000 after buying in for $50. For the first time we are releasing a full review of how he made his way through more than 21,000 people for this win. That's right 21,000 people! Not to mention, Mike has won the very same tournament. If that isn't a shining example of Mid-Stakes Mastery, I don't know what is.

If that wasn't enough we also added an audio review of Mike recent 240k win at the Commerce Casino in LA AND a full review of one of Bryan's PKO victories on the GGpoker Network.

How does one man make $1,950,000+ from mid-stakes tournaments?

Yes. $1.95 Million. That’s a major league sports salary. And Bryan Paris made that kind of money from the same tournaments you’re playing.

Would you like to make that kind of money from $50 and $100 tournaments?

Bryan’s average stake is $92. That means he’s not blowing up the high stakes games every time he plays. He makes his money the old-fashioned way. He does it through hard work.

He plays the exact same games you play. Are you getting those kinds of results?

Are you happy with the results you’re getting in tournament poker?

Are you winning tournament after tournament? Or are you constantly busting right after you make the money?

Do you have the big stack when the money bubble bursts? Or are you struggling along?

When you do make a final table are you closing the deal? Are you the one with all the chips when everything is said and done?

Are you losing critical flips?

Why do you need to win those critical flips?

There are ways to build your stack before those coinflip hands happen. There is a way to stay alive even when hands go against you.

Do you want to know how to build your stack without a showdown?

Do you want to know the secrets the pros know that the general public doesn’t know about?

You watch high stakes poker on TV. You listen to high stakes poker players talk. Do you ever notice what they’re saying never helps you with your game?

Many of those high stakes players are preparing for games with the same 10 or 20 guys every day. Their strategies are much different from what you need. When they try to teach you about poker they have the best of intentions. The problem is they haven’t played mid-stakes in a long time. They have no idea what you’re dealing with.

Have you ever watched some of these training videos? It’s just a perfect hygienic world every time. Everyone folds to them on the button. How often does that actually happen for you? Then they raise and the other players always respect their raises. They double barrel and their opponent respectfully folds a pair.

Could you ever see that happening in your games? No one respects your threebets, much less your double barrels. The people you’re playing against just raise rivers for the hell of it all the time. There’s always someone raising before it gets folded to you in late position.

There are ways to deal with these button clicking monkeys. No one has ever taught you the methods.

It is not difficult to become a great player at mid-stakes. Many people love the convoluted explanations high stakes players give for their plays because it excuses them from responsibility. If it’s absurdly hard to become a great poker player, then no one can do it. You can simply claim all successful players are lucky.

But then how do you explain Bryan Paris? 142,000 tournaments in the same games you play? $1,950,000+ in profit?

That isn’t a single tournament win. That is consistency. That is excellence. That is execution. Every day this man woke up and poured his soul into his craft. That’s why he was rewarded.

Becoming a great poker player at mid-stakes is not difficult. It’s just time consuming. That is completely different.

Bryan Paris and Mike Wasserman have put in the time. They have $3,000,000+ in profit between them across hundreds of thousands of tournaments.

That isn’t luck. That isn’t some jackass who won a tournament once telling you what to do with your life. That is skill. That is excellence and execution, day in and day out.

And now for the first time ever these two are going to take you inside their spacious offices and teach you their craft. You will learn how two legitimate professionals have supported their families for decades.

It is rare for two professionals this solid to say anything about poker. It’s hard to get working professionals to expose their secrets.

Many of the poker products you see on the market are created by poker professionals after they’ve left the tables. They are looking to diversify their portfolio as they try their hand at another venture.

That is not the case with Mike Wasserman and Bryan Paris. These two take care of their families with their poker. Both of these guys are lifers. If you make a major final table in 30 years, there is a great chance you will be dealing with one of these guys.

Would you want to learn from these two guys if it were affordable?

Are you interested in what it takes to be an actual working professional who stays consistent?

Do you want to learn from two guys who have made millions of dollars from the same games you play?

Or do you want to keep learning from people who never play in your games?

If you were to get 30+ hours of training from Mike Wasserman and Bryan Paris together it would cost nearly $7,000. But for right now you can get their complete 17-hour video package for just $697.

How many times have you entered a $500 tournament live, busted it, and not even thought about it a week later?

For just that price you can get coaching from two of the most consistent guys in the business.

If you watch a half-hour lesson every day, it will be OVER A MONTH before you finish all the content.

And then you’ll have to review it. There is so much to take in here. These guys are explaining their COMPLETE playbook for mid-stakes tournaments. This is the exact recipe they used to make millions at mid-stakes!

“Why would they give away their exact playbook for $697 if they can make millions with it?”

That’s your question, right?

I’m glad you asked.

They are willing to give away their trade manuals because ALMOST NO ONE will apply what they say.

All you have to do to start winning at mid-stakes is apply their methods, but it takes a commitment. You have to watch one of these videos for fifteen minutes before you play. You give them those fifteen minutes and they will give you a new play to apply. Then, while you’re playing, you have to actually pay attention and try to implement the new play. Then, the next time you play you have to watch the same video again to find another play you can apply. You need to repeat this process until you have every weapon in their arsenal.

Again, this process is not difficult. It just takes time. There’s a difference.  

Most people won’t put in the time. They treat poker like entertainment. They’ll watch the training video once and then not apply it.

Most people want to PLAY poker. They don’t want to work at it.

It’s like golf. Most people want to just go play 18 holes. Very few people will play a round and say to themselves, “okay, I’m working on this specific aspect of my putting today.”

The difference between those two golfers isn’t much, but over years and years it will separate them by galaxies.

Are you the one guy out of a 100 reading this right now who will take the million-dollar playbooks and actually apply them?

You can only answer that question through action.

Show us you’re serious about your game.

Do you want to keep barely cashing with 20 or 30 big blinds? Do you want to keep losing critical flips deep in tournaments? Do you want to keep watching other people win the tournaments you just busted out of?

Or do you want to start applying the exact methods that led to Bryan Paris and Mike Wasserman making millions of dollars?

Imagine yourself in six months time. Imagine you committed to watching one of these videos every day. Imagine you wrote down just a couple bullet points every time you watched a video. Imagine you applied the methods you saw on film. Imagine all these plays and weapons started becoming part of your game.

Every one of your friends is wondering what happened to your game. You’re playing so much different now. More importantly, you’re making more final tables. And when you make these final tables you actually have chips. You can start torturing the guys who used to force you into flips you could never win. They have to win five flips in a row now to actually have a shot at busting you. That’s how much you were accumulating before the final table.

All you have to do to make this future a reality is apply yourself. You can start doing that today.

Look at everything you will learn from this package in the time stamps below.

If you don’t know the answer to a certain question posed in these time stamps, ask yourself this:

Are you comfortable continuing to play poker seriously without knowing the answer to that question?

One leak could cost you $500 over the next year!

If you plug 10 or 20 leaks this package will pay for itself within weeks! Everything after that will be free money!

Look at everything Mike Wasserman and Bryan Paris teach you here. They cover practically everything:
