Stages of the Tournament
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.
