We aren't really sit n go players, but that doesn't mean we don't get it. The popularity of Sit n Go tourneys is huge, and players everywhere are looking for an edge against the competition. And how can you get that edge? Sit n Go Strategy by Collin Moshman, thats how. This book will help layout the strategies, and more importantly the reasoning behind the strategies that you will want to employ in sit n go tournaments.
Here's what a reader on Amazon had this to say about the book:
Sit `N Go Strategy is one of the best poker manuscripts ever published, and a major contribution to poker, as there has been relatively little literature on SNG tournament strategy. It is a well written, fairly comprehensive guide to playing low and medium buy in, one table tournaments. Sit 'n Go Strategy is logically divided into sections on Low Blind Play, Medium Blind Play, and High Blind Play, as well as a chapter, titled Sit `N Go Career Play which covers some additional concepts.
You'd better get your hands on this bad boy, because if you don't your opponents surely will.
