Description de l'ouvrage

1 août 2006
This is the first book to provide winning strategies for the small buy-in ($100 or less) no-limit hold'em tournaments that have exploded in poker rooms all over the country-and on the Internet. The strategies for small buy-in no-limit hold'em tournaments are similar to the big-money games, but the important factors-hand value, position, aggression and others, and speed of play-cause a radical change of strategy. Snyder recounts his own experience with these methods at a win rate of almost 300% and gives readers specific strategies for winning the big money available in prizes at the hundreds of small buy-in no-limit hold'em tournaments taking place weekly around the country and on the Internet.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent 13 décembre 2008
Ce livre fut une révélation pour moi. C'est un des premiers livres qui a eu un impact direct sur mes résultats au poker. Certes j'étais débutant quand j'ai lu ce livre. Mais il m'a fait réellement réaliser la réelle importance de la position et du rapport de force avec les blind.
Je le recommande vivement.
Attention la version 2 du livre que je n'ai pas encore lue mais qui a l'air prometteur traite d'un sujet tout autre.
La version 1 détaille des stratégies pour des tournois à faible buy in, alors que la 2 traite des tournois a tres fort buy in comme les WSOP, EPT et compagnie

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Generally excellent 6 novembre 2006
Par P. Binion - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book has been discussed at length at the 2+2 forums. Sklansky and Malmuth have pointed out a couple of flaws in the book (about which Snyder debates), but S&M generally concede that the methods advocated in the book work well.

This book examines the "speed" of various tournament structures, and advocates a method for playing for "fast" tournaments.

I found the analysis of tournament structures to be insightful. While I knew that slower blind levels and more starting chips favored skill (while less time/chips favored luck), I had never seen an attempt to quantify the differences between structures. Snyder does a good job with it.

For fast tournament structures, Snyder proposes a method of play based on the interrelationship between your card strength (or lack thereof), your positional strength (or lack thereof), and your chip strength (or lack thereof). His rock-paper-scissors metaphor is quite original.

Recently, I decided to play an online tournament using Snyder's principles. To my delight, I finished 3rd out of 1000 players. To me, poker books either cost you money or make you money. This is one of the few that will make you money.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 This Book Deserves to be Recognized as a Classic! 13 janvier 2007
Par Jon - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
For the life of me, I don't know why this poker book hasn't gotten much more attention than it has. In my opinion, the inaptly-named "Poker Tournament Formula" is as original and insightful as anything ever written by Sklansky, Harrington, or Brunson, and superior to 90% of what's on the market today. I know that it's not authored by one of the world-famous names in poker. I doubt we'll be seeing this fellow at a WPT final table any time soon. But pound for pound, this book packs a full heavyweight punch; there are at least a half-dozen brilliant original ideas here, and even when Snyder says what's already been said elsewhere, he says it better.

Honestly, for less than $15, I can't imagine what else you could want from a book. This is much more than some robotic "Poker Tournament Formula" (along the lines of the horrible "Kill Phil" system). The detailed discussion of tournament structure alone (complete with a reference website) is more than worth the price of admission. Snyder outlines in detail how to play intelligent, aggressive poker in the world of small buy-in events; quite frankly, if you don't play along the lines he recommends in these tournaments, then you simply are *not* going to win consistently.

Some have ridiculed the book for its comparison of poker to the game of "rock, paper, scissors", where chips are the rock, cards are the paper, and position is akin to the scissors. But in my opinion, this is the single greatest idea you could get out of this book: you don't necessarily need the cards to win a poker hand; you can win based on sheer chip arsenal or by outmaneuvering your opponents after the flop. It's true that these moves won't hardly work at all in a ring game against decent players (since there you *should* be playing cards and not chips or position nearly as much), but in fast tournaments this strategy is essential. This book will literally change the way you think about poker tournaments. In fact, I suspect it will actually change the way most of us view the game of poker itself.

I'd also recommend Poker Tips that Pay: Expert Strategy Guide for Winning No Limit Texas Hold em as a good compliment for "Poker Tournament Formula", with a lot more specific hand examples to study.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Accurate and helpful advice for small, fast tournaments 1 avril 2007
Par E. Lawrence - Publié sur Amazon.com
I happened to bring the book on a cruise recently.

While relaxing by the pool I would read a few pages every day.

Later in the week I decided to join---for the first time ever---a small [$60 buy-in], fast [blinds went up every fifteen minutes] tourney.

The night before the tournament I heard from a friend [who had also joined the tournament] about the 're-buy' and 'add-on'.

Without this book I would have had no idea how those would factor into the tournament and my play.

I found out there would be three tables.

Thanks to this book I was able to review how the number of players would influence my play.

Thanks to this book I was able to use the above information to determine the 'patience factor' and tried to play accordingly.

Thanks to this book I was able to profile some players. There were at least two 'cagey-codgers', two 'canasta ladies', a few 'ball-cap players', and even two 'wimps who were gone within a half-hour after blowing their initial $60 and another $60 on the re-buy.

Thanks to the position play described in this book I used some strong bets at the right time to win some hands. I was also able to pull off a few bluffs that I would not otherwise have tried. A cagey codger even complimented me on my ability to steal the blinds.

Don't pay attention to the reviewers who whine how this book has Math in it. If I can do some division, you certainly can. I'm not a Math genius.

Unlike a previous reviewer who won his tourney, I only came in 7th, but I was happy---this was my first tournament!

In short, this book is worth purchasing. The author has an easy to understand writing style, explains his ideas clearly, and above all---has a plan.

Remember, it's as simple as rock, paper, scissors.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Advice 2 juin 2007

Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
What Snyder points out is that ourneys vary in speed. Not only that but the different stages of tournaments vary in speed. There is a very large range of tournaments between the ones where normal cash-game skill will prevail and the extremely fast tournaments where luck really can't be overcome. Snyder recognizes this and gives methods to use the hidden factor, tournament strategy, which dominates the tournaments too fast for pure poker skill to dominate but slow enough not to be entirely determined by luck.

In fact, he gives methods to determine the speed of a particular tournament, the chance that the type of tournament will be profitable for you and the bankroll requirements to be playing in that tournament. In other words, he helps with one of the most important decisions, whether or not to play in a particular tournament.

His recognition that the "all-in moment" should be avoided and that the majority of ones chips should _and can_ be added without putting your cards face up and seeing who wins is an important virtue of the book. His understanding of position is excellent and his explation of how to use it is inspiring.

He isn't afraid of taking on the poker gurus. He points out that the gap concept, so beloved of Sklansky et al, is valid but it does not govern situations where you have position and the bet or raise is not pot-committing or all-in.

Even in the slowest tournaments I play (the weekend tournaments at Foxwoods where you start with 10K in chips) Snyder's ideas help throughout the tournament, but especially when the blinds and antes have started to make the tournament play faster.

In the Tuesday night rebuy tournament at the bar down the street, which I basically play because I can walk there and walk home, I find his thinking completely valid. Last month, I played one of these almost completely by his pure position strategy, from the time the rebuy period ended until the final table. That is, I raised from the last three seats, without referencing my cards, if it was folded to me. Called after limpers or one normal raise on the button, again without looking, although I never let the other players know that. The only exception I made was to look at my cards in the "always fold" positions or if there had been a big raise previously, so that I wouldn't miss any good hands in those situation.

I got to the final table with a chip lead and won it. This isn't the first time I have won that tournament but it might have been the most fun.

His emphasis on winning chips without showing your hand is important. Farmers have chips so that the bandits can steal them. His point that players almost always lose the most chips on hands where they really like their cards and can't let go of them is true.

We have not seen him on television and that is going to make many readers doubt his advice but he isn't talking about winning a 10K main event. He is talking about making money in poker tournaments and he knews what he is talking about.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Nowhere to be found such content!!! 2 janvier 2010
Par Ath K. Nikolopoulos - Publié sur Amazon.com

Now this is a book you cannot miss!!!

1) I wonder why people say its so good and give it only 4 stars... This book is so focused, so well constructed and it has such valuable info that it deserves nothing more than 5 genuine stars.

2) It's a very honest book. If you want the best out there for fast tournaments, both live and online, this is the book for you. Forget about Harrington (great for Big, slow tournaments like WSOP), forget about all others talking great about cash games. This one is for all of us playing in the internet in fast tournaments, and the ones that try out their chances in their local Casino fast tournaments.

3) Having played lots of online tournaments, I found myself making most of the mistakes mentioned in this book. And somehow I felt that i had to make some changes like the ones proposed in this book, but I never really knew what changes exactly and most of all WHY!!! Here you will find all the details on what to do and why it works.

4) Though that rock/paper/scissors metaphor does not work for me, it describes some great info about the way your chips/cards/position interact during a tournament. And it tells you why you can't rely on your cards only, and you have to learn how to play your position and your chip stack.

5) How about some hints? Here you will learn how to determine if a tournament is fast and how fast it actually is... And then you will learn how to adjust your game according to the tournament speed. You will learn how the initial stacks, rebuy or addon options affect your play etc. Damn, there is stuff here you can't imagine how important they are, and they are here for you to grab.

I can't say enough about how much I have learned about tournament play from this book. And since I don't participate in big slow tournaments, Harrington actually had not worked for me so far, I always seemed to be left short stacked, because of the tight and cautious way I had to play. This book liberated me and made me much more effective in my play.

thanks mr. Snyder

Well done
