Sit ‘n Go Strategy - Collin Moshman

There are a few books out there now which deal with sit n’ go strategy, although Mossman’s book is by far the best and in fact the only one that I would recommend as worth reading.  Since this is such a strategy intensive tournament format, one of the pitfalls is that if the author doesn’t understand the game well enough, the advice can easily do more harm than good.  This is why reviewers tend to be harsh and even butcher some of the lesser books on this topic.  

This is not the case at all with Moshman’s book, as he is a very accomplished sit n’ go tournament player, and his skills and understanding of the game are evident throughout the work.  As a matter of fact, I’d go as far as to say that this is one of the best poker books ever written period, and surely will provide its readers with some excellent  instruction.

The format is very well organized and takes readers through the sequence of low, mid and high blind play, where strategies differ significantly as the blinds move up.  What really makes this book stand out from the rest is Moshman’s really getting into the nuts and bolts of what it takes to be successful at these tournaments, while explaining all the key concepts in an easy to understand manner.

If you play sit n’ go tournaments at all, regardless of your skill level, this is simply a must read.
