Book Description

Tournament Poker For Advanced Players Expanded Edition by David Sklansky

Tournament poker is different from standard ring game poker. From a distance, it may look like a typical poker game, but there are many factors that can lead to proper strategy that is very different than what most players, (including good poker players), are familiar with.

Yet some people excel at tournament poker. This is not luck. These are players who have a good understanding of what the proper strategy adjustments are, and when they come into play. It is not a coincidence that the same players make it to the final table far more than their fair share.

This text is the first book ever written that explains tournament strategies which only a small number of players have mastered. It assumes you already know how to play poker well, but aren’t knowledgeable of tournament 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 because the stakes rise, all-in strategy, the last table, making deals, The "System," and much more.

Book Review

This new edition has about 100 new/updated pages and is a must have even if you own the previous edition.
This book has gotten a few bad reviews which is really unfair. The people who have been disappointed with the book, have had wrong expectations. The book is for advanced cash game Poker players who have LITTLE OR NO tournament experience. Have you played a lot of tournaments allready then the right books for you is Dan Harrington’s 3 volume set on Tournament Poker.

For players who are fairly new to tournament Poker David’s book is a really good choice. It has excellent, easy-to-understand explanations of key tournament concepts. His description of why the value of a chip changes during a tournament is clear and concise, and what he calls the "gap concept" is something that every serious tournament player should understand.
