About the Author


Neil Timothy was doing so well at Sit ‘n’ Go tournaments, where he has taken down over $100,000 in small stakes tournaments over the past three years, that he quit college to become a full-time Sit ‘n’ Go player.

Customer Reviews

Neil Timothy's book teaches basic play for those of us starting our online sit and go careers.
Amazon Customer
The book gave a good understanding of the aggression needed around the bubble and some good concepts you need to know around this stage of the tournament.

I think every chapter in this book is soo cliche filled that it has to have come out of some other Cardoza book before.

Is this book even new? I think every chapter in this book is soo cliche filled that it has to have come out of some other Cardoza book before.

This book is the standard play tight early, stay alive, than steal like crazy with position and trap hands to hopefully double up to get into the money SNG strategy... etc etc.. Does this strategy sound familiar? Oh yeah you have read about it in every online forum post, every generic other book there is. Even his bankroll guidelines are off the mark.

I have a huge problem with a lot of the recent SNG books. The authors are touted as having these huge results yet there is no contact info for the author or any online nickname information either so that you as a reader can even see the author is genuinely the real deal and indeed has the results he claims to have.

My main problem with this title is this though how is anybody writing a SNG book without a mention of ICM (Independant Chip Modeling)? This basicly is the be all end all of SNG strategy! Putting a book together on Sit N Go poker and not mentioning ICM and ICM Strategy is absolutely attrocious! It has been talked about on forums and discussed in depth for years yet a publisher and author have the nerve to leave such vital information out?

Avery Cardoza I hope you have the decency to offer a refund... you should absolutely be ashamed to have your name associated with such lazily, fluff filled reading.

Let me begin with a tip for the publisher. The next time you print a poker book let a poker player read it first!

I usually don't comment books unless something really annoys me. I've read about 40 poker books and this is the worst one! Neil might have a talent for playing SnG's but not for writing. In fact after reading this book, it's hard to believe he can make a living on it (as he claims to do). He doesn't even use the words bet, raise and reraise correctly. For instance, on p 55 he writes "Instead of raising, ..., you can go for a check-raise". Of course he means "Instead of betting" but stuff like that happens all through the book and you often have to reread the sentence to understand what he means. Some other comments:

Bluffing: In the section about playing AK and AQ on the flop on p36 he says "In general, the more players that there are in the pot, the more inclined you should be to bluff." Of course opposite is true since the more people there are in the pot the greater the likelihood that someone has hit the flop hard.

Math: On p85: "Remember that even if your opponent have three to one chip lead over you, you are still only two double ups from being even." Let's say your opponent has 30 chips and you 10 (3 to 1) and you get all in and win. Then you have 20 and your opponent 20 and you are even after one double up not two!

Betting patterns: On p105 he refers to Mike Caro's famous advice about that when someone acts strong they are usually weak and when they act weak they are usually strong. Caro is talking about physical tells while Neil is writing about betting patterns. He does not mention that. Also on page 144, he states that one of the worst mistakes is to bet minimum on the flop since it shows weakness.

On the plus side, this book is a very quick and easy read, and probably improved my game fairly immediately.

On the minus side, that's about all it's good for. It has no depth nor detail.

I recommend breezing through this book quickly if you're a beginner (preferably through your library), then pick up Collin Moshman's book: Sit 'n Go Strategy.

I have read numerous books, but this is one of the few that specializes in the short stack tourneys you likely face
in the bigger tournaments, like WSOP events. has useful suggestions, strategies, tips, etc.
Easy to follow, good for beginner to people who think they are a pro, but arent yet. ;-)

Would recommend to anyone not having much familiarity with the short stack turbo tourney structures.

even thought it says it's about "sit and go" tournaments- it has alot more going for it. trick plays and etc. that can be used in regular games. gives very good advice on head to head play - and short table play. you might not even have to get books on "head to head" and "short table play" anfter reading it.
