By P. Wong
The long awaited sequel to 'Kill Phil' has finally been published. Where 'Kill Phil' provided an effective long-ball strategy for neophyte tournament poker players to compete against expert players, 'Kill Everyone' takes the 'Killers of Phils' [who by now should have had a lot of playing experience] to another level of play.
This second book by Lee Nelson and his new collaborators [Tysen Streib and Kim Lee] details some very advanced tournament poker concepts and strategies. It is also based on the modern game [also sometimes called the 'new school'] of very strong aggression. Where 'Kill Phil' emphasized a long-ball strategy due to its target audience being beginning tournament players, this book teaches small-ball play in the early stages of a tournament, and provides further analysis of the long-ball tactics introduced in 'Kill Phil'. Thus, you now have both strategies in your arsenal to be utilized as befits the situation.
The book identifies two key phases of tournament play - the early game, where the objective is to accumulate chips, and then the end-game [when the blinds are escalating, and players are generally in the `move-in' stage], where the goal is to win it all. It is this last phase where the book excels. It is also the most useful, as this is the situation that most players find themselves in - short-stacked or average-stacked. It not only provides detailed guidelines and tables for the strategies to be used but the discussion is strongly backed up by sound game-theoretic analysis. A particularly useful discussion is equilibrium play when far from the money, .i.e. you become short stacked early in the tournament, and you can no longer play `cash poker' - how do you play your short stack optimally?

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best tournament books May 27, 2010
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I had trouble understanding how many people are playing in the big MTTs nowadays. I had read the first two Harrington books on tournament play, but I felt like the game had changed a lot since the days those books came out. I was puzzled about the way many players were winning lots of chips with mediocre holdigs. This book helped me to understand better what was going on in the tables. I can't say that I've become a better player, but I hope that when these concepts sink in I can start to gain some success in the tables.

The book has lots of interesting topics like stealing from UTG, calling early raises in position with suited connectors and pushing short stacked with seemingly bad cards. Theories are backed with mathematical equations. In the first reading these things were a little too hard to get a grip, but more studying is required and hopefully these things fall into place too. It's also good idea to read about the tournament play after several years of Harrington's books, because those techniques are so common and everyone knows them so they are losing their power. It doesn't mean they're obsolete but just a little too common and well known that something else might work better at the moment.

To me the last part of the book, which is about short handed cash games, is unnecessary. I don't understand why the authors have added that obviously too short section on complex matter which deserves its own book.

So if you're playing tournaments and want to develop your skills to more advanced levels you need to know these things. After reading the Harrington books this is a good supplement, because this is newer and goes beyound the basics. I recommed this to everyone playing NLHE tournaments. However, in order to better understand these ideas, it would be good to have some kind of basic understanding of tournament play. Maybe not the first book you should read about MTTs.

5.0 out of 5 stars Timely and Relevant to Today's Poker Games December 30, 2007
Kill Everyone is an ambitious undertaking by veteran poker player's Lee Nelson and Tysen Streib, with the assistant of master odds-calculator Kim Lee. The combination of the "feel" of successful experienced players set on top of a solid mathematical foundation make this book a very credible collection of strategies that can be applied to help any poker player find immediate and long-term success playing Texas Hold'em. No one book can make anyone a great poker player, but Kill Everyone will clue newer players into what some of the strong players are doing to earn consistent profits playing poker tournaments. Having said that, this is not a book for complete novices, as much of the analysis will be lost of inexperienced individuals. For those folks, I recommend Lee Nelson, Blair Rodman, and Kim Lee's Kill Phil, as that book outlines a simple strategy to keep you competitive against stronger players while you are learning the intricacies of poker.

Kill Everyone is full of meaningful insights that are relevant to today's poker games. Many of the well regarded poker books lose their value as their ideas become mainstream. The continuation bet that the masses learned to use to their advantage after reading Harrington on Hold'em means something very different than it did just a few years ago. Kill Everyone explains how the all-in bet is viewed differently than it once was, while also addressing specific scenarios that you will encounter in tournaments. Page through the table of contents and you are sure to see several topics that address parts of your game where you could improve.

I rated this book highly for it's relevancy to today's poker scene and for presenting some ideas that I had not previously seen in print.

One of the best poker books on tournament poker. A good alternative if you don't have the time to read "trilogy" poker books like the ones from Harrington or Phil.
