Poker Tournament Formula 2 by Arnold Synder

Snyder adapts the loose aggressive fast tournament strategies of his groundbreaking first book to the big buy-in events where the real money is made. Players learn never-before-revealed concepts and secrets that shows players why cards don't matter as much as the dynamics of a tournament. Readers learn how to alter their strategy for any tournament structure and opponent, why hands must be played differently from cash games, and why players can't figure out what winners are doing just from watching them play. The book also covers optimal satellite strategy, sit'n'go strategy, methods for estimating tournament win rate and edge, plus:

Why many of the most skillful poker players fail in poker tournaments
Why it's often correct to play a hand "wrong" in a tournament
How to develop the optimal strategy for any tournament based on its blind structure
How to consistently build a big stack and use it to terrorize your opponents

This book is a really good companion volume to the original PTF - where that one dealt with fast tourneys, this one deals with slow ones - or 'Pro' ones if you prefer. It's definitely an advanced volume - not a beginners book. While not a nuts and bolts book of tactics, it's a great treatment of attitude, and assumes with the right goals firmly in mind that the reader is capable of implementing the tactics to get it done. I rated this 4 stars because I'm a pretty tough critic. What could make it a 5 star? Honestly, not sure. I think I was expecting more nuts and bolts tactics and such. If I could give it 4.5 stars, I would have. What I really liked, though some others may find too cerebral, was a detailed and very easy to follow debunking of some of the popular thinking that is just accepted as fact - where it came from, why it is wrong, and how to take advantage of it. I read through this thoroughly and applied it in a deep stacked tournament the other day - and had pretty good results for my first time (finishing in the top 15%, shy other money though). During the first third of the tourney I was the big stack at my table - definitely because of reading and applying this book. I had been avoiding those types of tournaments as I felt I was not 'ready' for them. No more. And for the very first time I was able to assess another player in the tourney and know, just know, that he was dead money. All in all very enlightening - I got a lot out of it. You may also.
