question about gus hansen concept in your view of course.
gus talks about in preparation for day 2 that he thinks it is a mistake to constantly raise 3 x when the blinds are 4/3 to one ratio as you should raise more to steal.
do you agree with that or not ?.
on amazon it says you have 2 wpt wins and cashed in wsop 5 times in 2010.
and you say your book main focus is mtt which should be assumed as it is secrets of tournaments not secrets of sit and goes which was written by phil shaw.
so the site you do videos for was formerly a sit and go site and looking at your name, the videos you are doing are mtts (for those who just assume you are an sit and go instructor), and you also have a site for playing 180 sit and goes.
1. for people looking to hone their mtts game do you recommend doing 45, 90, 180, and for those of us still on ftp demand sit and goes tournies ? if so which of these reflect mtts properly like 180 for sure but not 90 person sit and goes is what i amg getting at!
2. it seems reading your amazon that your main strength seems to be in live tournies and so with a fast structure like a standard regular mtt on full tilt, 1500 start chips as oppposed to the slow blind structure of live tournies does your book translate well to online poker play?
i am not asking for ptr stuff just that have you been able to place high on wcoop and ftos consistently ?
3. what other books besides kill everyone, and the harington series would you correct , gus hansen every hand revealed has been named in this series, yet what concepts do you find wrong in it ? as you probaly don't want to derail your own thread,perhaps you can go into the search and find a good gus hansen revealed thread and post your further thoughts on it.
so back to the orginal question here,, i am assuming you mean t.j. cloutier tournament poker series as well ?
oh yes what about full tilt poker tournament guide ?
if you read it,, what did you think of the leverage chapter?
4. book comparison question
assuming you read winning poker tournaments 1 and 2,, is there any advice you think is wrong in it ? as your goal in your book is to correct misinformation out there and this is quite a popular series.
5.book comparions question
did you read poker tournment formula 2 ? if so how would you relate that chip ulitlity concept to online tournies ?
5. there is already 1 and 2 set in stone ,, will there be a workbook to go with it for part 3 , like dimat has for jeff hwang omaha series,, and harington had his tourney series as part 3 ?
and here is the links to reviews on a quick search of your book
quick question about this is
does this concept of illusion of fold equity work at the micro mtts like the daily dollar at the ftp ?
if i am understanding your implied pot odds quote here correctly..
top pair top kicker gives you reversed implied pot odds on the flop unless you get two pair on the turn/river or trips so you should be pot controlling in general ?
my question about pot control is ..
how do you know when you are pot controlling vs slow playing and get yourself in trouble by outdraws ?
so that is it,,
i do look forward to any responses you give and the book, (it isnt' yet in chapters or amazon canada so i havent' ordered it yet ).
