Upswing Lab coach and cash game crusher Gary Blackwood is back with a deep dive module on double barreling turns.
While Gary’s previous modules often focus on broad concepts, in this module he treats us to an in depth look at 2 specific boards, giving Upswing Lab members a real understanding of optimal double barreling frequencies, sizes, and combos. If your baseline strategy is lacking after the flop, you won’t want to miss this one.

What’s Inside the New Module
Module Length: 5 hours and 15 minutes
- 8-4-3 with a Flush Draw (Button vs Big Blind)
While it’s rare that you’ll run into this exact flop when playing Button vs Big Blind, looking at specific boards within the solver does much more than give us a copy/paste strategy. Gary helps us really understand why the solver chooses to do different things across a variety of turns, allowing us to apply its strategies across a variety of flops and turns.
- Q-5-4 Rainbow (Button vs Big Blind)
After looking in-depth at a low connected board, Gary switches things up with a dryer texture. We learn the dynamics of high card rainbow boards, as well as the importance of looking at how the low cards connect, and how that impacts our barreling strategy.

- UTG vs Big Blind Overview
Gary then takes a look at how our strategy shifts when ranges tighten in an Under the Gun vs Big Blind dynamic. You’ll notice how the solver tends to choose barreling combos for the same reasons, allowing for broader application.
In his final two videos, Gary flips the module on its head and looks at Big Blind’s turn strategy facing double barrels from the In Position player. In order to understand our own barreling strategy we have to understand the correct defense, and this part of the module really helps to tie everything together. Upon completion, you should have a deeper understanding of solver turn strategies, and be able to immediately implement some broad ideas into your game!
