Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Jonathan Little is a highly successful poker professional who has won over $4 million in tournament play. His first book “Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, Volume 1” dealt with the fundamentals of play. In this second book he builds on this base by examining the highly complex issue of how to handle the different stages of a tournament.

 

As well as outlining a technically accurate style of play, Jonathan also discusses a number of other topics that are crucial to success at poker. These include:

 

How to spot tells (and avoid giving them)

Correct etiquette

Practical tips for tournament play

 

Managing life as a professional poker player throws up a number of issues in itself and Jonathan calls upon his many years as a pro to address these. They include:

 

Developing your poker skills

Mental & physical approaches required for successful play.

 

As well as being one of the world’s best players, Jonathan has been a highly respected coach for many years. In the final section of the book he draws on his experience here to answer the most common FAQ’s asked by students and also offers an in-depth analysis of 30 hands from tournament play which outline many of the concepts discussed in the book.

 

In his professional career he has won the WPT twice. In 2010 he cashed 5 times in the WSOP, including a third place finish.

Informative and very clearly written by Mr. Little.

This book isn't like the first book of the series, I liked very much because the 2nd book was quite easy compared to the first one.

I'm a casual player but have no doubt that if you study this book and do as he recommends, you will see very good results.

After reading Vol 1, I was convinced that Jonathan Little had written the perfect book for tournament poker players in the new and coming decade. At the time, I called Vol 1 a Bachelors Degree in poker. So why write Vol 2? Let's be honest, most poker books are a waste of time, and most great books are followed up by mediocre books. For example, Doyle Brunson's Super System should be on every poker player's bookshelf. Super System II? Pretty much a wasted read. Daniel Negreanu put out a book that has only one chapter worth reading. The rest could be burned without care by the average poker player. But most poker players who write (and some who can't spell) can't help themselves and put out book after regurgitating the same information over and over again.

Having said that, this book is different. Vol 2 is a case study in how to be a poker player. If Vol 1 was a Bachelors Degree, the only description available for Vol 2 is Masters Degree.

Moving beyond the math of poker, Vol 2 concentrates on specific personality traits, habits, and mindsets that are required to be a poker player. Knowing what the odds are in a particular hand is important, and Vol 1 covers that perfectly. Vol 2 then goes the next step and teaches why everything else associated with the hand is important. Then it discusses healthy living and why that is important. There's even pages devoted to why you shouldn't be playing poker at any given time. Very few poker writers have ever discussed in such detail why it is just as important to take your wife to dinner as it is to play poker, even if poker is your only way of earning income.

I cannot possibly recommend both Vol 1 and Vol 2 enough.

Jonathan Little has once again shown us a glimpse into the mind of a top tournament poker player, this time going beyond just the nuts and bolts and truly showing insight into what it takes to win at every level.

I just bought and returned this Kindle Ebook. I couldn't read the symbols ♦ ♣ ♠ ♥ as they were very tiny. Increasing Font size did not help. Pretty much makes the examples useless in the e version.

This book isn't like the first book of the series,
I liked very much because the 2nd book was quite easy compared to the first one.
I have summarized both books into a notebook. While the first teachs purely strategy and technical concepts, beeing really hard to absorve, the second book teachs a kind of behaviour of professional poker players that is very easy to assimilating
The book is very good! but sorry for my poor English.

Jonathan's 1st and 3rd book in this series are excellent; however, this book contains everything else he doesn't cover in the first two. There are some good concepts in here, but also some that I wasn't interested in.
