I wonder if there's a chapter entitled "How to buy in for the exact amount the fish is sitting with (to the cent) so that you ruin poker forever" or "How to hit and run"?
I'm the last person to be a hater for the sake of being a hater, but I mean... cmon. It's like a guy who makes most his money from bumhunting calling another guy who plays tournament players and writes a book about waiting for 99+, AQ+ to play a hand bad. Really? Cmon.
you should read his pitch for the book before posting this . There is other items to look at . The problem I have is that most of the 50 misconceptions are items that have been covered and I dont believe most players with some experience take any given scenario as a "play one way" approach.
he has positioned himself as someone who has been successful based on treating his playing as a business, with attention to detail , and bonuses , game selection etc. and now says that what we have learned is wrong. Im sure from all 50 items there is some good advice
but I feel hes looking for a niche to slip into from a marketing standpoint,
and Im not talking about the title.
My impression of him is that he is a rare breed of grinder, who has great discipline and able to 12 table etc.
Writing in his premise about how many hands he has seen compared to a live player doesn't impress me as most are throw -aways to begin with.A year of playing, is a year of playing, and there are things gained and lost by playing live or online. If playing millions of hands was truly the answer then Dusty would be playing with Ivey and Dwann on a regular basis, and correct me if Im wrong be he's not a winner on the big boy circuit. What Dusty has to realize is that he is successful because of his business model and going out and trying live tourneys(ie world series) because your a good grinder online playing 12 tables
is wishful thinking, which makes me question this guy as a knowledge source quite a bit.Ill have to see some stellar reviews to pick this one up. sorry dusty,
If this was a continuation of his first book with a more in depth look into some of the subjects he touched on in that book, Id probably give it a read, but this........ nah.
