Tournament Poker for Advanced Players (Expanded Edition) based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.
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.
