Which Poker Strategy Masterclass Should You Choose?
While both courses provide a good poker foundation, the winner is Daniel Negreanu’s MasterClass because it has more depth and actionable tactics.
But, you really don’t need to choose. For the price of two classes, you can just sign-up for the All-Access pass like I did.
The All-Access pass will also get you full access to all other expert courses where you can learn about magic, photography, fashion, film-making and much, much more.
Alternatives to Masterclass Poker Strategy
Phil and Daniel’s Masterclass courses are great introductions to the game. And if you are like me, you’ll want to consume courses from every top pro to understand different ways to look at the game.
However, if you are a more advanced player that has already mastered the low and mid-stakes, then Run It Once might be another option. Run It Once courses are geared toward players looking for more advanced strategies to improve their win rate.
