Exploitation in the real-world is an awful thing. But at the poker table, exploiting players is where your winrate comes from. Finding weaknesses in a player’s strategy, and then implementing lines that take advantage of those weaknesses, is what exploitative poker is all about.
In this video, SplitSuit breaks down the 4 types of exploitation most common in poker. These come directly from “w34z3l’s” PRO video “Exploitation Fundamentals” and break down the big things that you want to be looking for in every session. While fishy players have gaps in their strategy large enough to drive a truck through, even strong players have areas in their game that allow you to find & exercise +EV exploits.
These exploits include bluffing more against players who fold too often, value betting thinner against players who refuse to fold, folding more often to exploit nitty ranges, and defending more often against players who are too aggressive for their own good. See how all of these work together, and even how multiple of these exploits can available even within the same hand.
