Book Recommendation - The Full Tilt Poker Strategy Guide : Tournament Edition


I hardly ever do book reviews, better yet I never to book reviews before I have finished a book, but this book deserves a recommendation. I guess its mostly because I thought it would just be nothing more than a "shill" book, not sure why I got it in the first place. I've only started through the first few chapters, but I can honestly admit that Andy Bloch writes one of the most resourceful sections I have ever read in a poker strategy book. His section is just sick full of wisdom.
Here are the authors in this book:
  • Andy Bloch
  • Richard Brodie
  • Chris Ferguson
  • Ted Forrest
  • Rafe Furst
  • Phil Gordon
  • David Grey
  • Howard Lederer
  • Mike Matusow
  • Huckleberry Seed
  • Keith Sexton
  • Gavin Smith
  • and edited by Michael Craig

I have just started the Chris Ferguson section, and so far so good. I'd definately recommend picking up this book if you want to improve your tournament game.

Did you get this from the Fulltilt store or is it available somewhere else? I don't have anywhere near enough points to get from their store.

How does this book compare to the Harrington Hold'em books I-III?

HOH will give you a fundamental outlook on how to play tournaments. Andy Bloch's preflop play chapter explains reasonings on what many players do incorrectly preflop. I would definately read HOH first, and then read this for a different style of play. Remember Harrington is fairly tight, while Bloch/Ferguson are very aggressive.
