Synopsis

Break Deep Into The Top Third

Only about a third of online tournament players are profitable. And with higher tournament fees and dealer tipping, the percentage of profitable live tournament players is probably even smaller. Just becoming a break-even tournament player is an accomplishment–especially because today's players are tougher than ever. But who plays poker to break even? Tournament Killer Poker by the Numbers shows you how to play for blood.

Tony Guerrera gives you a strong theoretical understanding of tournament dynamics and the ability to read and adapt to your opponents. Don't let the math scare you. From abstract theory to in-depth studies of specific situations drawn from no-limit hold'em tournaments of all kinds--single table, multi-table, shorthanded, heads-up, rebuy, and shootouts--Tournament Killer Poker by the Numbers gives you the knowledge you need to play no-limit hold'em tournaments profitably. You'll learn:

The importance of blind structure and payout structure

How to map relative chip counts to monetary equity

When to accumulate chips

When to preserve chips

How various player archetypes think and play

And much more!

Learn the tools and the skills you need to take your results to the next level. Break deep into the top third--and bring home the money!
