Exploits (2): Thin Value Betting

Thin value betting is an exploit that takes advantage of the overly wide calling ranges of your opponents.

In this lesson, you will learn how to identify this mistake in your opponents' play, and with which hands to extend your value range in order to exploit it.

  • Evaluating showdowns
