Learn the secret blind defence systems that I have taught to top PLO pros to help them make hundreds of thousands of dollars

Move beyond the hand chart and start playing the right hands at the right time to get the right results...

Even if you're not a 'math guy'
Even if you have not bought poker courses before
Even if you're still new to PLO and transitioning from Hold'em
And especially if you're looking for proven strategies that you can use immediately at the tables

Omaha is a game of courage. What does this mean? It doesn't take much courage to wait for sets in multi-way pots. That takes patience, not courage.

It doesn't take much courage to 4-bet Aces pre-flop. That takes a strong stomach, not courage.

And it doesn't take much courage to pot the river with the nuts. That requires functioning fingers at most, not courage.

But it takes real courage to fight back from a position of weakness. And sooner or later smart poker players recognise that to really compete at the tables they have to stop being bullied in the blinds. That takes courage.

Here are some of the things that you might have noticed...

You might have noticed that the toughest regs in your games seem to 3-bet against the button a lot. But when you try it you can't seem to find the right hands to choose.

Or perhaps you never seem to get action post-flop when you build a pot with Aces pre-flop... except when the d*mn nit flops a set.

And come to think of it, it really does seem strange that some coaches teach 3-bet ranges from 'the blinds' but make no distinction between Small and Big Blind 3-bet ranges. Because that's not the strategy that you see played at your tables.

So you have figured out that you need to adapt your 3-bet ranges to different opponents, but working out how to build those ranges is a problem...

You have the courage to search for a solution but you soon find out that it's all too easy to get caught up in the latest trends.

Trends change, principles don't

If you're playing a lot of poker in 2018 you know that there are two very strange trends in mainstream poker coaching.

You know that a lot of great poker players tell great stories about how they play the hands that they do... But their stories work for them and not for you.

And you know that a lot of PLO players are trying to memorize the same machine-generated solutions... But memorization without understanding is what you hated most about high school .

In a way, this all makes perfect sense: If your brain is saturated with media culture then you are conditioned to follow trends. Yet if you examine the game more deeply than the average player, you want to see the signal, not the noise.

Would you trust a lab that wasn't run by a scientist?

I want to make one thing very clear: If you are already completely convinced by the current solver solutions, and if you been able to use them to crush at the tables day-in, day-out this course is not for you.

In the 21st century data is cheap and easy to generate, but
interpeting that data, classifying it according to conceptual models, and making those models usable for real people... that's what's hard.

And that's exactly what I do.

Hi, I'm Phil Rocquemore
Founder and chief scientist of the Cardquant poker research centre

Phil Rocquemore

My work focuses on the analysis of complex strategic problems using causal models in conjunction with inferential techniques and computational methods.

I hold a degree in Physics from the University of Oxford and I won a prestigious Thouron Scholarship for my Master's degree at the University of Pennsylvania.

If you're still reading then you know that poker training material is only valuable if the players who study it BEAT THE GAMES.

I have been consulting for professional poker players for over 5 years. In that time I have developed my coaching methods to help clients from around the world move up in stakes and win hundreds of thousands of dollars.

I have taken ambitious low stakes players to high stakes, and helped high stakes crushers switch from NLHE to PLO.

I've taken top 6max high stakes players going through a downswing and helped them to beat the games again when the competition is tougher than ever.

"My win-rate jumped up to almost 10 EV BB/100"

"When I first came across Cardquant, I was barely breaking even, having spent more than a year transitioning from NLHE to PLO, without properly understanding where I was mistaking. I had been working with another coach, but I could not manage to improve the way I wanted.

Then I started to work with Phil, first buying pre-flop principles and then working with him as a private coach, which I have been doing for a year now. My winrate jumped up to almost 10 EV BB/100, and my understanding of the game was brought to the next level. He wisely mixes GTO solutions with Exploitative plays and he has always been able to give a solid, math-based answer to the many “why?” I’ve had during this period. It is not cheap, but it is worth every single pound."

Have you ever found PLO training material that had this big an impact on YOUR game?


I teach my students how to recognise common opponent weaknesses and specify exactly how to adjust their pre-flop ranges to exploit them in the thick of battle.

These top players trust heuristics over data because we are living in an age of INFORMATION OVERLOAD.

Mainstream poker training sites bombard you with 'new' content day after day but it's left up to you to search through the pile to find exactly what you need. And the site owners like it that way: one of them advertises over 4,000 hours of content!

Do you have time to dig through 4,000 hours of content to find the strategies that you need to succeed?


I didn't think so.

If you're anything like my high-stakes private clients then you know that your time is the most valuable thing that you have. You don't want to waste it watching real-time, unrefined musings on poker strategy.

You might have noticed that, with most of this 'new' content,
the video is new but the story is the same.

The difference between my work and videos on subscription sites is that my work is tightly focused, rigorously researched and concise.

I have developed this video training course, using my unique dynamic approach, to give you the strongest possible pre-flop strategies to protect your blinds.


Introducing...

Stop static strategies in their tracks with the definitive guide to building 3-bet ranges from the blinds

Here's just a sample of what you'll learn in this course:

  • How the structure of the game gives rise to starkly different Game Trees depending on whether we are in the Small Blind or the Big Blind.
  • The differences in range construction between the Big and Small Blinds which arise as a consequence of the difference in structure.
  • Why the "Pot-Odds" model for a Small Blind call is a dead-end and how top players ensure their success by approaching calling differently

Hear what other students have said about my proven material on PLO strategy

"I became a solid winner"

"I have worked with about 3-4 different coaches before Phil and I can tell that I havent had such analytical and precise coach before him, who would be willing to put that much effort into the coaching sessions and explain theory so well and so fluent.I can highly recommend Phil as a coach, because he teaches some things that I had never heard before.

About my career and improvement: When I started playing plo in 2010 on plo10, I was pretty passive irrc, didnt even know what 3bet was and didnt use any tracking software at all. I turned my biggest weakness (passiveness) into the opposite and maintining a healthy red line I think. Before Phil coached me, I had massive swings, even 70-80 BI-s/month and my game was not stable because of leaks in my game and my mental state(I was tilting a lot), but since I became a solid winner and much stronger mentally now I can retain a solid EV line.So Phil brings stability in your game if you work hard off the tables."

- David 'Danfiu' Mezei, High Stakes Professional, Hungary

"Phil will show you a different way to see PLO"

"It's the best pre-flop content on the market. Phil will show you a different way to see PLO. He will change your intuition and you will realize that almost all the field make some serious pre-flop mistakes. I think the [Pre-flop Principles] course is the best in the world."

- Yuri 'theNERDguy' Dzivielevski, World Class MTTer who transitioned to PLO, Brazil

"The ranges have given me much more confidence"

"It is a very comprehensive and well presented course that allows you to grasp quite effectively the reasoning behind range building. Phil gives a very solid foundation on not only 'how' but 'why' you have to build preflop ranges in certain ways.

The preflop ranges presented on this course have given me much more confidence not only on which ranges to choose from preflop, but also to build a much more robust postflop play as a natural result."

- Diego Nakama, Mid-stakes PLO cash player, Brazil

Frequently Asked Questions


1. Is this course suitable for players new to PLO?
This course is PERFECT for players new to PLO... provided you have some poker experience under your belt already. If you are the kind of poker player who wants to skip the data dump and get straight to the core concepts you will love this course.
2. I an an expert on X-solver, Y-solver, Z-solver. Is this course for me?
That depends. If you're already crushing the games with your own analysis from solvers you don't need another course right now. However my students have found that this course complements their work with solvers, helping them to understand WHY certain results occur and then recognize those patterns in other situations. As a consequence this course will save you hundreds of hours of solver research that you could otherwise be putting in at the tables.
3. Why can't I just wait for somebody else to copy your range library?
Mindlessly memorizing ranges is NOT the point of the course. The best way for your in-play ranges to even get close to theoretical ranges is to understand how they were derived. In order for you to use the ranges effectively you need to be able to identify and understand the context in which you are using them. You don't have to settle for second-hand information with most of the value lost in translation.
4. Do I have to own Pre-flop Principles to study this course?
No! If you already have Pre-flop Principles then you will be very well prepared for the material in this course. But if you are new to my training courses then you will find that Dynamic Blind Defence flows smoothly as a standalone unit.
5. Is this course live? What if I live in hotels, casinos and airports? How long do I have access?
This is NOT a live presentation. It's an online video course you can take at your own pace. After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like so the strategies, ranges and quizzes in this course will always be available to you, whenever you need them.
