Tournament Poker And The Art Of War

160 Pages | ISBN: 081840647X | PDF | 5 MB


David Apostolico, a renowned and successful tournament player and author of Pocket Idiot's Guide to Tournament Poker and Machiavellian Poker Strategy, has written a new poker strategy book, Tournament Poker & the Art of War. This new publication draws theories from the ancient Sun-Tzu masterpiece The Art of War and applies them to today's competitive world of tournament poker.

Initially, the book seems promising. It opens with a clever poker-war comparison, listing Sun-Tzu's "Ten Principles of War," an updated translation of the rules, and how they apply to the strategies used in tournament poker. However, it starts to lose momentum soon after the first chapter because the book is basically comprised of quote upon quote.

Apostolico continuously cites the Chinese master's theories on warfare in an effort to relate them to a multitude of aspects of poker strategy, which after a while makes the comparisons feel forced and hard to swallow.

The book consists of 14 main chapters and covers a variety of topics ranging from "The Ten Principles" to planning, tactics, attacking, and maneuvering. It concludes with a couple of short chapters on beginner tournament poker and Internet tournament poker. A glossary is included at the end of the book.

This book is definitely not recommended for beginners wanting to learn the basics of tournament poker, but if you are a history buff and an accomplished poker player you may discover some useful and valuable insights.
