Overview

Tournament poker is very different from standard ring game poker. While they might appear the same from a distance, there are many differences in proper strategy that are often unknown to many experienced cash game players. Some people excel at tournament poker. This is not luck. These are players who have an advanced understanding of what the proper strategy adjustments are, and when they come into play. It is no coincidence that the same competitors make it to final tables far more than their fair share. This book explains tournament strategies that only a small number of players have mastered. It assumes you already know how to play poker well, but aren't knowledgeable of tournament-specific concepts and when and where to use them. Some of the ideas discussed include: the effect of going broke, the Gap Concept, how chips change value, adjusting strategy to rising stakes, all-in strategy, final table play, making deals, the "System," focusing on weaker opponents, unusual plays with aces and kings, moving in against the blind, and much more. This newly-expanded version contains over 100 new pages of updated material dedicated almost entirely to today's most popular form of tournament poker: no-limit hold 'em.

Sklansky breaks down the difference between tournament poker and side (cash) games. A working knowledge of your preferred game (and most other forms of poker) is assumed. Most concepts will be too advanced for the beginning player. Sklansky has a lot of useful advice, but as usual his style tends to occasionally cloud the issue -- at one point, he argued both sides of an issue so well, I couldn't figure out what he recommended. There are better poker books out there (see below for some of them) but this book is essential for serious intermediate or advanced players.

With so many poker books out there, one really needs to pick and choose which will be the most beneficial. This book is a very detailed analysis of Tournament poker offering specific examples and strategy throughout the various stages of a tournament.

The more experienced poker player will not agree with most of the poker theories in this book. It is not well written and the advice is not solid. I would never recommend this poker book to anyone.
