  • Tournament advice

    Even though I'm a cash game player, I realized that it can't (obviously) hurt to take some time to study and analyze tournament theory and play. I do have "Winning Poker Tournaments One Hand At A Time vol. 1", although this book analyzes individual hands, so I still need some more material, like fundamental theory, strategy and concepts that could take me one step closer to being a consistent MTT winner. Any suggestions are welcome!

    The Tournament Rules is a small book by Chris "Fox" Wallace and Adam Stemple they show you simple rules to remember when playing tournament poker , mostly what to do relative to your stack size in a tournament. I think its only available on amazon as a kindle book, its a good starting point.

    The most recent tournament book I have is the Raiser's Edge which Elky takes part in, I have not finished reading yet but its the most up to date I have seen.

    Also Dan Harrington's tournament books are good .(Harrington on Holdem)

      Hi Fesk! The 2nd volume of the one you have is a very good book. It would be the first one that I'd recommend. Also, make sure that you take a look at the video library. There are plenty of MTT videos and session reviews from all the trainers and pros. They will be a great help too. Good luck at the tables.umbup: John (JWK24)

        Oops, missed that you had responded! I'll look into them and combine them with Kill Everyone that I'm reading at the moment. I only work for one 48 hour shift every other week and all I do there is to lay in a comfy bed, so I read Kill Everyone (and your suggestions) at home, and One Hand At A Time at "work", so it's the perfect combination of theory and practical hand analysis, and I hope it will pay off. Thanks for your help. umbup: ....
