The 2004 World Series of Poker awarded more than $30 million in prize money, the biggest prize of any sporting event, with the first place winner receiving $5 million! That, for a mere investment of $10,000. This is the first-ever instructional book devoted entirely to showing players how to win no-limit hold'em tournaments as nationally televised on ESPN and the Travel Channel and watched by millions each week. Readers learn the basic concepts of tournament strategy, plus: how to win big by playing small buy-in events, how to graduate and adjust to medium and big buy-in tournaments, how to adjust for short fields, huge fields, different time periods (slow and fast-action events), how to win online no-limit tournaments, how to manage a tournament bankroll, all the basic and advanced betting and positional strategies, and tips on table demeanor for televised tournaments. The authors also show actual hands played by finalists at the WSOP and the WPT championship tables with card pictures, analysis and useful lessons from the play.
