Tournament Poker for Advanced Players. David Sklansky. Tournament poker is very different from standard ring game poker. While they might appear the same from a distance, there are many differences in proper strategy that are often unknown to many experienced cash game players. Some people excel at tournament poker.
This is not luck. These are players who have an advanced understanding of what the proper strategy adjustments are, and when they come into play. It is no coincidence that the same competitors make it to final tables far more than their fair share. This book explains tournament strategies that only a small number of players have mastered. It assumes you already know how to play poker well, but aren't knowledgeable of tournament-specific 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 to rising stakes, all-in strategy, final table play, making deals, the "System," focusing on weaker opponents, unusual plays with aces and kings, moving in against the blind, and much more. This newly-expanded version contains over new pages of updated material dedicated almost entirely to today's most popular form of tournament poker: no-limit hold 'em.
Tournament Theory. Questions and Answers. Getting Started. Other Topics. Hand Quizzes.

The books start by giving players information about which hands to play, and what to do with the hole cards you get. The books then go on to talk about in great detail, as in this book, or in lesser detail as in Hold'em Poker the strategy behind the rest of the game: after the flop, on the turn, on the river, playing heads up, large games, small games, loose games, tight games, and much more.
