A complete hand-by-hand analysis of heads-up championship play against the best players in the world shows how to beat opponents at heads-up poker.
You’ll learn how two of the best heads-up tournament players think through every decision in more than 600 hands as they battle their way to the final round in the prestigious NBC Heads-Up Championship. You’ll see their cards and hear their thoughts through twelve matches as they devise masterful strategies to defeat world-class opponents. Annie Duke and Vanessa Rousso give you a powerful mix of the practice, theory, and strategies for heads-up tournaments—where you must risk chips on every hand you’re dealt—and show you what they did to beat the best players in the world. You’ll see what works and what doesn’t as amazing bluffs and poorly executed tactics are deconstructed. You’ll learn how to design a game plan for each opponent, how to adjust your plan as the match progresses, how to play against pros and amateurs alike, and how to get the best of it against superior opponents. Their detailed analysis of when to change your strategy due to fluctuating chip counts, the flow of the match, and dynamic maneuvers make this book the bible of heads-up play.
