Kill Phil was a breakthrough book and everyone with an interest in tournament no-limit hold 'em ought to read it.

Read this book before everyone else does and poker tournaments get a lot tougher. --Andy Bloch, professional poker player

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.

This book is a great insight into the modern poker game. The author (Lee Nelson) and his team have put together a truly remarkable work that even seasoned players can benefit from. The commentary from Betrand Grospellier isn't simply a bunch of "I agree" he actually does disagree with Nelson on some points and always provides details on why he either agrees or disagrees.

This book will show you how and more importantly WHEN to up your aggression, widen your hand range, or even lighten up. More geared towards tournament players, even cash gamers can benefit from the knowledge.

While the book shows you loose-aggressive play, even players uncomfortable with this style should still read this book to gain insight into how OTHERS are playing.

There is also a section towards the end on conditioning and fitness (who woulda thought you needed to be fit to sit on your butt all day) for long tourneys (some events last for 4-5 days playing 8-10 hours a day). Diet and exercise are important for long term mental function and the author lays out a basic guideline to get you started.

All in all, definitely worth it to read, you'll make your money back on it.

I am a winning Razz player and play on Full Tilt(john21703). But this is my goto NL bible. It helped me win over $800 in cash and prizes in the local S-N-B poker league in the last two months alone (2 local wins, 2nd in regionals, 8th in nationals). I wish I understood every concept in the book, but this isn't a one read type of buy. So get your highlighter and be prepared to win some real money. If I could only recommend one book besides Ace on the River, it would be this one. I think about this book more at the tables than any other one. If you don't know the concepts in this book, be assured someone else at your table does.

Format: Paperback
There must be a lot of shills writing the reviews because I found this book full of general concepts with no practical applications, aka hot air. I've read many poker books (Harrington, Tri Nguyen, Sklansky, Brunson, Duke, Hellmuth, etc.), and this is by far the worst. Many of the concepts are adopted from well-known ideas, and such concepts are generalized and impractical. The authors provide excessive analysis using analog mathemetical studies and graphs, I mean a lot of graphs, and spend little time on actual play. It's almost like they just want to impress you with calculations and graphs of their concepts. It's not because I don't get the math, in fact, I understand it quite proficiently. But it's like trying to teach you chaos theory and then asking you to apply it to the real world. What's amazing is that at times their concepts are not even supported by math, but they still tell you to forge ahead. For example, they'll end up with a negative EV value and then say go ahead and do it anyway since your CSI (borrowed from Harrington's M value) is so low and you have to push regardless. Really?! Well, what's the point of the doing the math that's actually telling you not to do it. Also, the book has a way of explaining things in the most complicated manner, even for the simplest ideas. For example, they spend exhaustive time and ffort creating a "bubble factor" notion and even provide indices to show when to push, call, fold, etc. In short, all "bubble factor" means is if the tournament closing in on the bubble (e.g., near the money), you play either to make it or to win the tournament, and generally the big stack should push the medium stack, the medium stack should push the small stack, the small stack should jam the big or medium stack and try to double up and stay alive for the bubble.Read more ›
