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.
IMHO Super Systems is outdated and they are much better poker books out there. I found that the read about his life was more interesting then the actual lesson's he was teaching.Grumbledook said:skalanskys book isn't really just limited to no limit holdem though
if i were you I would get hold of supersystem, it was written years ago and is about to be rereleased in the coming weeks as a second edition, from what I have heard though the no limit section is pretty much intact from the first, so its still good

Harrington on Hold'em vol.1 is fantastic. It's tourny specific and covers just about every situation imaginable. Can't wait for volume 2.Grumbledook said:I have heard good things about Dan Harringtons new no limit book, shall probably check it out after I get back from Amsterdam
Hadn't heard that. He's also got a spot in Super System II.kensteven said:appertly dan negranou has a good nl poker book coming out soon
For 6 bucks you can't go wrong.c4rdsh4rk2004 said:wondering if any of you read or viewed comments about the new hellmuth book Phil Hellmuth's Texas Hold'em i received an e-mail from amazon telling me it was new, it's about 6$
or anyone seen his series of 4 dvds that were advertised on television
get back to me
i read some mixed reviews on the super system II, there's a few new sections like the omaha PL by Jennifer but is it really worth it if you have the first one (even if i ask the question i'll buy the second one)
