Publisher's Summary

FossilMan's Winning Tournament Strategies is the ultimate guide to practical tournament play. Greg “FossilMan” Raymer, winner of the WSOP Main Event in 2004, explains everything you need to know to become a successful tournament player. Raymer is not only a big winner at the tables, he also has a unique ability to explain difficult concepts in clear and simple language.

Raymer simplfies the learning process by breaking down the complex subject of tournament strategy into the key areas. Chapters on strategy include: the Independent Chip Model (ICM), game theory, poker maths and pot odds, correct bet-sizing, playing the big stack, and playing the short stack.

However, Raymer does not focus merely on the correct technical aspects of standard NL tournament play. He also discusses many other important tournament formats that often confuse players.

These include:

  • How strategy changes in satellite and rebuy tournaments
  • How to play heads-up events and other uncommon formats

And the one everyone wants to know about:

  • How to play the Main Event

Raymer is AWESOME, whoever produced this is NOT

Raymer is easily one of the top 5 poker players of his generation. I'm sure the hard copy of this book is stellar. And there is a lot of great content here. BUT, there are stretches 2-3 chapters long during which the narrator is clearly referring to illustrations from the pages of the book. Images of example hands, table positions and a LOT of math figures. Without those illustrations, it's impossible to follow along without getting utterly confused. Whoever produced this for audible did NOT think it through. Maybe make a link to those images available?
