Publisher's Summary

There is a lot of money to be made at small-stakes no-limit hold'em because...surprise, surprise...most of the players aren't very good.

However, few players understand exactly how to exploit these games. Competent players who generally play larger stakes will, of course, beat them. But they won't beat them for nearly as much as they ought to. Why? Because they don't understand how to adjust correctly.

Playing a solid, competent, decently aggressive style is a strategy that will be profitable. That said, you should not be content with just beating these games - you should be absolutely crushing them. The trick to doing this is to disregard a lot of “correct” poker and get way out of line at the right times. The methods required are far from obvious or intuitive but in Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em Jonathan Little explains them in great detail.

Jonathan constructs a basic strategy to crush small-stakes games and also identifies the adjustments that need to be made when facing more competent opposition.

You need this book if....

  • You frequently play small-stakes no-limit hold'em
  • You usually play larger stakes but (especially live) often have to make do with smaller stakes games
  • You play tournaments (such as WSOP events) that feature numerous recreational players

Good Audio Book, Probably Better as Physical Book

I highly recommend this book because it has some really great, solid advice about playing poker. That being said, I would also order the physical copy (or e-book) of the book because listening to hand ranges and charts described is tough to follow. There is the option to go online and download the charts referenced but, since most people are listening to this audiobook while multi-tasking, it is not ideal to also have to review charts online. I think from a learning perspective, read the book and study the charts, then use this audiobook to polish up the concepts on the go.

Good study guide but not for the car

This is one of the most interesting books on ranges I have seen. The operative here is seen. Jonathan’s well narrated other books have kept me company on the commute. This one however defeated that forum as you must be able to see the charts for this to be effective. Good content but I switched to Kindle version from Audiable

Fantastic!!!

I love these audiobooks especially Poker books by Johnathan Little ;)
There is one draw back when verbalizing hand ranges and that is jumping from suited to off suited hands in the range back and forth (it’s difficult for the brain to process). Previous books would cover pairs, then all of the suited hands, then the off suit hands, which is easier for the brain to process imagining a hand range chart. Trying to imagine it while jumping back and forth is difficult. Other than that these books are absolutely, incredibly, AMAZING and AWESOME!!! Fantastic work I enjoy them and am learning a lot.

This audiobook is very informative.

This audiobook is explained very diligently, containing factual information. It gets very complex at times with mathematical equations, but overall is a great and enjoyable to listen to.

Great Book; Not a Great Audio Book

This book is excellent for beginners who want to understand what they’re doing wrong, how they can approach poker in a winning way and how to understand their opponents better. However, it is simply not great as an audio book. While there is a way to access the numerous charts referenced in this book, if you’re going to download and follow along with them, you’re basically having to read with your eyes anyway. It’s extremely difficult to internalize charts without physically seeing those charts. So you HAVE to download them and follow along. Since that is the case, I wish I had just bought the book instead and will probably do so because I think it is an excellent study. Trying to get a lot from this while driving in a car is really falling short.
