Tournament poker is a tough game to play but the rewards for success can be huge. Even regular online tournaments offer substantial prizes running to hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Jonathan Little, a highly successful poker professional who has won over $4 million in tournament play in just four years, explains exactly how to succeed in this highly competitive field.
Playing technically sound poker is crucial but this is far from the only skill necessary.
Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volume 1 dealt with the fundamentals of play. Volume 2 builds on this base and examines the highly complex issue of how to handle the different stages of a tournament. At times the best strategy is to play loose, create problems for your opponent and thus keep accumulating chips. At other times an ultra-tight strategy will be the most profitable. Understanding when to "change gears" is a highly developed skill that requires a great deal of study and experience. Jonathan Little has that experience.
Managing life as a professional poker player throws up a number of issues in itself and Jonathan calls upon his many years as a pro to address these.

I have recently taken up poker professionally after playing socially for years.
This book teaches you thing that I can only say will cost you a lot of money to learn any other way. Some vital pointers and strategies that are effective if used in the right spots.
Also my first audio book so 10/10 all round for me.
"This is a check-raise of a book"
I was not only able to find solutions to the holes in my game, but I found two more that won't be leaking. Thumbs up coach!
"if you really want to try and play pro then .."
maybe this volume is for you. otherwise a lot of "life" lessons and one time at band camp kind of information. interesting listen but really only two or three chapters relevant to my aspirations.
"all around great book with subjects & good exampl"

Jonathan is a great author and the things he teaches are 100% accurate. The best part is that he always backs up his teachings with real life data to prove it. My game has increased exponentially since I started following Jonathan's advice.
