    No novice poker player or aspiring professional can afford to be without

    Tournament poker, especially that form called 'No-Limit Texas Hold 'Em' has become something of a national phenomena over the past few years. Now tournaments are played in every major American city, are all over the television airwaves, and easily available online. David Apostolico has won poker tournaments in Las Vegas, Atlantic City, online gaming websites, .and writes a monthly poker column for 'TopPair Magazine'. In The Pocket Idiot's Guide To Tournament Poker, Apostolico draws upon his more than twenty-five years of experience to introduce the reader to the rules of poker, layout basic tactics and strategies, find a suitable tournament, and become a better poker player -- especially in a tournament setting. One of the principle advantages of The Pocket Idiot's Guide To Tournament Poker over the many 'how to' books on poker that are now available, is that this one is quite literally 'pocket sized' and can be slipped into the shirt or coat pocket and taken along to the the tournament table for reference. Offering a wealth of advice, counsel, warnings, suggestions, strategies and tactics on every aspect and sequence of tournament play, no novice poker player or aspiring professional can afford to be without their own well read copy of The Pocket Idiot's Guide To Tournament Poker.
