NEW: Level Up With Lex. Innovative personalised poker advice to help you learn and improve

December 02, 2021inPoker

How would you like some quick personalised poker advice?
I’m talking about a simple way to level up your poker skills thanks to one of the most famous faces in poker.
That’s what you can do with Level Up With Lex. It’s an innovative new feature on PokerStars. Personalised advice videos presented by PokerStars Ambassador Lex Veldhuis.
The videos offer help on your real money Spin & Go game. The advice will help improve your skills and create more winning moments.
It’s a great new way to improve as a player. You can get almost instant feedback on hands you played only a few minutes before. The advice will tell you how you played, and what you could have done instead. And it’s all tailored to you. Not anyone else.
In short you get immediate tips on how to play hands you folded seconds earlier.

So how does it work?

The personalised advice you receive from Lex focuses on improvement and education.
Here’s an example.
Say you’re dealt A♦4♣ and you play out a hand.
The Level Up with Lex video will go through it. It’ll show how strong your hand was on the flop, for instance. Then, what the correct action was facing a bet after, say, flopping a low pair.
It’ll say whether your action was good, and what you might have considered if it wasn’t. And all with the expert help an animated version of Lex himself.

It’s based on data generated by PokerStars’ proprietary machine learning platform. Put another way, it reads and analyses hand histories to detect any mistakes.

So it’s not based on hypothetical situations that are hard to relate to. It focuses on specific actions you’ve taken at the table, replays them, and tell you where you might have gone wrong.
Lex likes it. And we hope you’ll give it a try and see how it will help improve your own game.
“Learning poker strategy as a beginner can be challenging as there’s so many resources out there. But Level Up With Lex gives clear and simple advice that’s easy to take on board, meaning players get the most out of their time at the tables,” said Lex. “It’s taken a lot of hard work and effort and I’m looking forward to seeing players benefiting from this technology.”
Take a look at a demonstration of what you can expect below.

I hope you agree. But give it a try to see what you think.
