The day is coming. It’s only six more days until preordering begins for my new book Playing The Player: Moving Beyond ABC Poker To Dominate Your Opponents.
Beginning on May 8th and up until the e-book release on May 22nd, you can preorder the book. It’s $49.99 for the e-book version [supports PDF, MOBI (Kindle), and EPUB (Apple and other e-readers)], $49.99 plus shipping and tax for the paperback, and $69.99 plus shipping and tax for the e-book and the paperback both.
If you order during the preorder period, you earn yourself a couple of bonuses that are together actually worth more than the price of the book!
- A $60 OFF coupon for 4 hours of coaching. My rate for coaching is 4 hours for $400 as an introductory package, then $200/hour after that. When you preorder the new book, however, you get a coupon for 4 hours of coaching for $340—$60 off the normal price. This offer goes for new students and for those who have already had an intro package, so it’s a great deal for everyone.
- A $20 OFF coupon for one of my two other books. You get $20 off either Small Stakes No-Limit Hold’em or How To Read Hands At No-Limit Hold’em. You can apply the coupon to the e-book version, the paperback version, or both. If you’ve missed one of these books, this gives you a great deal on it. If you’ve already read them both, you can use your discount to get a paperback to give as a gift! All paperbacks ordered off my website come personally signed by me. (If you’re giving a gift, please send me an email telling me whom to personalize the book to.)
That’s $80 in coupons for preordering a book that costs just $49.99! It’s a great deal, but remember, you have to preorder your copy between May 8th and May 22nd to get the coupons.
Table of Contents
To whet your appetite for all the new stuff in this book, here’s the table of contents.
The book teaches you how to identify predictable, exploitable traits in your opponents. Then it shows you how to build a counter-strategy to take full advantage of these traits.
The bulk of the book focuses on how to beat those TAG and LAG regulars in your games. The guys who play a decent game and aren’t just giving their money away. Chances are that, for now at least, you simply try to avoid these players. You then fight with these guys for the chance to play pots with the bad players in the game.
But you can do so much better than that. All the regulars in your games will have predictable traits and tendencies, and as soon as you identify these, you can really make them pay.
The ability to do this is what separates an ok winner from the absolute biggest winner in the game. When you learn to take money off not just the spots in the game but also off all the regulars, you will see your winrate skyrocket. If you want to move up and keep challenging yourself in bigger games, this is exactly what you need to learn to do.
In the book there’s a good mix between teaching you specific tricks that you can go out and use in your games tomorrow and teaching you how come up with new tricks and counterstrategies on your own.
I’m feel confident in saying that this book is really going to blow some people’s minds.
