These articles were originally posted on Jack Wilcox’s Higher Level Poker training website. It hadn’t been updated since Jack died in February 2012, and the design was falling behind, so I decided to edit and move the articles here in August 2020.
The majority of the strategy articles were written by Jack “Hoodlincs” Wilcox, with two articles by Jack “shipit2kg” Garner, and one by Johnathan “thatssosick” Chan.
Jack was a winning NL Hold’em cash game player up to $400NL. He took a technical approach to poker strategy, focusing on the use of ranges and equity to help influence his decisions. He also used a HUD when playing, and a lot of his advice involves analysis of a player’s VPIP/PFR as the starting point for working out how to play a hand.
His advice is solid, and the techniques he used are still relevant today.
Some of the highlights include; Semi-Bluffing By Raising All In, 4Betting Mathematics, and Check-Raising As A Bluff. My personal favorite is The Real Objective Of Poker, in which Jack explains the ultimate goal of playing poker, and showcases his deep understanding of the game.
I hope you get as much benefit from the strategy articles from Higher Level Poker as I did — they wouldn’t be here if I didn’t think they were worth reading.
