Summary

The best way for small stakes poker players to earn life-changing amounts of money is to win a satellite into a bigger tournament. Yet there is surprisingly little poker theory written about how to win satellite tournaments, until now. In Poker Satellite Strategy professional poker player Dara O’Kearney gives you a framework for how to approach every stage of a satellite tournament, from the early levels right up to the bubble. This audiobook takes the stress and uncertainty out of satellites.

You will learn:

  • Adjustments you need to make from regular poker tournament strategy
  • What hands to shove, call, and fold on the bubble
  • When to tighten up and when to keep accumulating chips
  • Easy poker math to do at the tables
  • The correct poker GTO ranges (and how to adjust to to different player types and situations)
  • When it’s correct to fold pocket aces preflop

Dara O’Kearney is a professional poker player from Ireland with a long standing reputation as the best satellite specialist in the game. He has won over $1 million in satellite tournaments alone and twice won the PokerStars UKIPT satellite leaderboard. He is sponsored by Unibet Poker and is the co-host of The Chip Race Podcast.

This audiobook uses the most up-to-date poker ICM calculators, however it has been written in a way to make the poker math you need to do at the tables very simple. Every section starts from a poker GTO framework but then explains how you should deviate when the players or table dynamics change. 

It covers every aspect of satellite play, from the important bubble stage, but even explaining the poker game theory behind late registering, post flop play, poker mindset issues unique to satellites and how to adjust in live poker tournaments. It has everything a texas hold'em player needs to qualify for big poker tournaments like the World Poker Tour, EPT or World Series of Poker.

Great Advice

This book is superb, Im a recreational player and have played satelite much with a similar approach to MTTs without much success, listening to a run through once and entering a 1 dollar satellite at level one you could feel the edge you had approaching it with this strategy, I would simply watch other player duel and fall off whilst I just picked up the odd blind where my stack was depleting, I was folding monsters and it made sense for me to do so, I sailed to a 15 dollar ticket and the final table of an 88 dollar ticket and bust out through my own undoing with my final all in, and it was my own fault because the book told me to leave a chip on the felt as my survival shoe string, many thanks guys

great strategy but lol

ok so the information is VERY good. the strategy is great. however they didn't take the time to even edit this audio. they literally published an in edited audio. there are many takes of passes, throat clears things like that. it's just unprofessional so it will make it hard for someone to take this seriously.
