Adapt your poker strategy for tournaments--and reap the rewards!
When novices won the World Series of Poker in 2003 and 2004, the word was out: you didn't have to be a pro to take the big prizes from even the toughest poker tournaments. Casinos across the world are pulling out slots and putting in tables, and thousands of new tournaments have sprung up almost overnight on the Internet. It seems that just about everyone is looking to play in tournaments these days. But almost no one knows how to play them well.
Victor H. Royer, world-renowned gambling columnist, author, and the man casinos turn to for advice, can get your tournament game where it needs to be, whether you're an average player in a card room or a novice in front of your computer. The dynamics of a poker tournament are radically different than those of a standard poker game, and Royer shows how the smart players learn to adapt their strategies to beat all those players out there who are still using static, older methods. Learn how to:
- Bring your game up to tournament levels
- Avoid common pitfalls of poker tournaments
- Compete at poker tournament speeds
- Spot the best events
- Find the best online tournaments and satellites
- Play all forms of tournament poker
Most importantly, Royer gives real-world tournament examples¯not just math lessons or theories¯that he presents in the conversational and easy-to-learn manner that has made his other eleven books in the Powerful Profits series such huge successes. So if you're ready to step up to the tournament level, Powerful Profits from Tournament Poker is ready to take you there and to show you how to win!
