Poker Books Online

Apr 4, 2008
Poker books online are everywhere designed to help you make money online. Do they really help you make money? To answer this question, yes they really do but not all of them. You have to find the right ones that will really help you and make you profitable. When playing yexas holdem online, I highly suggest you only play sit n go's. If you do not know what a sit n go is, it is a small mini tournament usually consisting of around 9 players. The top 3 players left standing make it into the money and get paid.

The breakdown of getting paid is as follows:

1st place = 50% of the total overall prize pool

2nd place = 30% of the total overall prize pool

3rd place = 20% of the total overall prize pool

As you can see when you play sit and go's you need to gun after first place every time. You can't sit back and rely on making 3rd place over and over again. It just isn't profitable or worth your time. The best poker tip I could ever tell you is to gun after first place every time. But how? When you are gunning after first place you must do the following. I am going to explain this to you at a high level but you will get the idea and understand it. When you start a sit n go, the blinds will be extremely low. On average, the first 20 hands of the poker game will be folded. If you sit back and watch, you will see at least 2 players knocked out right away maybe 3 just from playing way to aggressive at the beginning or going all in because they just don't care. Once you get down to around 5-6 players you need to start playing more aggressive. Playing aggressive is the best thing you can do at this point. You need to start stealing blinds and padding your chip stack to take down first place. When there is 4 players left, you definitely, I mean definitely, need to play aggressive. This is where most players go wrong. They will play way to loose, fold all their good hands, and just sit there until there is just 3 players left. It isn't smart because they usually just hold on for 3rd when they could have gotten first and they just wasted their time. They could have played more aggressive and built up enough chips to take down first place. An astounding poker stat is that 1 first place victory equals 3 3rd place finishes. You will absolutely waste your time by sitting there and being scared to play your good hands. You need to play your hands when there is 3 players left but that doesn't mean you have to play them dumb. There is a difference between smart aggressive play and dumb aggressive play. When you are playing aggressive and get caught by a re-raise, fold the hand and tell the person good hand. The moral of this poker article, don't be afraid to lose! Scared money won't make money.
