Much like a pilot need not know the pure physics behind his flight, a skilled poker player need not know the pure mathematics behind winning poker play. Too often have poker books taken a purely theoretical approach to poker instruction.
This book is the only poker book available that caters specifically to online sit–n–go (SNG) single–table low–limit Texas Hold’em tournaments. More importantly, it is the only poker book that guides the reader on a progressive path upward through the various limits, with only the information necessary to win with any bankroll or skill level to beat that specific low limit. Presented in a series of steps, the book provides guidelines that help tell the reader when to move up to a higher limit.
SNG’s have very predictable durations (40–60 minutes) so the reader could effectively set aside blocks of time to play. Unlike other games, the book contends that SNG’s have very predictable win/loss rates, can be defeated systematically, and offer an innate system of progression. That is, the various buy–in amounts can be viewed as a climbable ladder that helps gauge success.
As with any gambling, winning is not a sure thing. But this book gives you the tools you need to win.
Ryan Wiseman began playing online poker while a university student in 2003. Within a year, having studied many poker books with his poker–playing friends, he had become successful. Eventually they settled on one type of game — the no–limit Texas Hold’em sit–n–go (single table) tournament. The game’s predictable durations (40–60 minutes) fit well into their daily routines. More importantly, SNG could be defeated systematically. By the middle of 2005, Ryan had won more than $100,000. He currently lives in Toronto.
