Overview

Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volume 3: The Complete Workout by Jonathan Little

Jonathan Little is on a mission to teach the world how to play tournament poker. His first two books, Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker Volumes 1 and 2, outlined how the modern professional plays the game and changed the face of the poker landscape. Now Jonathan has produced a third volume, allowing players to test their understanding of the nuances of tournament play. The question and answer format allows the reader to examine each individual hand, consider the relevant factors and formulate their thinking about the best line to take. In this way the reader can compare their thought processes with those of a top flight professional who has amassed more than $5 million in career earnings. Jonathan teaches how to: · Hone in on the relevant factors in any given situation?· Find the most accurate bet-sizings to maximise player expectation?· Learn how to profit on the bubble and at the final table? Jonathan Little is undoubtedly one of the world's best poker players and also a highly respected coach. In 2010 he cashed 5 times in the WSOP, including a 3rd place finish.
