Collin nice to see you posting in the thread.
The current SNG climate is a tough one Collin. When your book came out you could be a very profitable player playing SNG's.
Unless you travel to the WSOP and become a satty specialist I question any US based player being able to play sng's as more than a hobby. Unless you are a non-us based player I question the investment in this book.
Zero says he is done talking pricing, but the problem is it's very difficult for US-based players to play SNG's profitably since Black Friday.
He is charging a significant amount of money for the book. I can appreciate the time and effort that went into the project including recording the videos. I think the combination of the price, with a relatively unknown author makes me question the investment in the book.
I mentioned Blackrain before. His book is gotten excellent reviews here. Here's the thing, at 20 bucks a US-based player can take a flyer on the book and earn the money back quickly. But, if you're US-based to make a large enough online deposit to make the investment in this book worthwhile playing sng's it is definitely is a risk that you will never see your money again.
As you well know, many of us are owed significant money from Fulltilt. I will not just deposit on merge; for example, knowing that I will probably never see the money again. Add the friction of the cost of this book for example you're making a large investment into something that is like subscribing to a game like Farmville and buying the special vegetable. I bet you could crush play money sng's using this system. Great but that brings the hundred dollar list price and $69 introductory special into question here.
Collin your book and video's on Stox were some of the best SNG information I had exposer to. It fascinates me the criticism your book takes from time to time on this board. Only Sheets sng stuff on PXF was as good. I am curious your reaction to this post in 2012 not the 2008 poker world.
