It doesn't need to be live gameplay for this book to help you out on your gameplay. Playing by the book, which tells
you to play TAG, doesn't give any variety into the game making you very easy to read, especially if you're a beginner. Gus Hansen's new style is basicly playing Small-Ball poker. Sure, if you're interested in the basic TAG strategy, go pick up the Harrington books for your TAG needs, but if you want to give yourself a little edge, implementing Small-Ball with your basic TAG, in my experience, will really help out with your MTT play.
