"For years I've run my big final table hands by Dara. Now you can read about how he uses his imagination backed up by sound mathematical principles to exploit and how you can too." - Padraig O'Neil - EPT Prague Champion

Game Theory Optimal (GTO) poker has taken over the modern game, but it is not the most profitable way to play when your opponent has leaks in their game. You will always make the most money against exploitable players by counter-exploiting them.

Beyond GTO: Poker Exploits Simplified is the first book to use solver technology to show how to truly exploit weaknesses in your opponents. There is no guesswork or anecdotal evidence, this book shows you how a perfect GTO player would make the most from a flawed human opponent. It provides actionable heuristics for you to crush soft games, including:

  • How to exploit nits, calling stations, and maniacs
  • Why balance is important, even at low stakes
  • What old school players got wrong about exploitative poker
  • How to get into the mind of a professional player playing against weak opponents
  • Specific preflop and postflop leaks, as well as flop, turn and river mistakes
  • How to avoid making the biggest errors yourself

Dara O'Kearney is a professional poker player, sponsored Unibet Pro and the co-host of The Chip Race Podcast. He is highly regarded as one of the best tournament grinders and poker coaches in the world, with a particular focus on modern solver technology.
