Lee Jones "Winning Low Limit Holdem" 3rd edition has a chapter devoted to SNGs.

[/ QUOTE ]

Is it any good? The book generally and the SNG chapter specifically?

Should bear in mind that the structure makes a great deal of difference. I play mostly 6 handed SnGs paying 2:1 with a good structure, so the mean stack on the bubble is normally 20 or 40 times the BB. (And I usually have more. [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]) I don't think a simple ultra-tight push/fold strategy will work well in this case.

The book would of course have to cater for low, mid and higher buy-ins because of the different strategies involved. Maybe you could get input from the best players at those levels? Lorinda, Raptor and Curtains (in that order), and Gigabet at the ultra-high level, come to mind.

Perhaps you could use a co-writer and an agent? I'll be happy to provide both. Ok, negotiating with Sklansky may not be much fun. And having to submit more manuscripts to publishers is even worse. I managed to kick the writing habit. Won't go back. I won't. I won't. I withdraw both offers.

b) i guess i should get in better contact with unarmed and actually consider writing a book with him, or possibly just flesh out the notes i already have.

Seems like a good idea. You would have a good chance of getting it published by 2+2.

BTW, I believe it is essential you maintain a stern tone and take a tough love approach to teaching these noobs, just as in your posts. [img]/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

I don't know. Kind of scary to think the "secrets" would be in the public domain (yes, I know this website falls into that category) and widely available in bookstores.

......

Write the book cit, I'll buy it, but I fear the long term outcome.

In addition to SSHE there are tons of books that cover low stakes hold-em strategy available at all bookstores.
You'll have to make a stronger argument that the general population is applying strategy effectively enough to negatively impact the average 3-6 game. The only thing keeping me from playing at the local Seattle cardrooms is the fact that it's more of a hassle and my hourly rate would be a lot less than 4-tabling the 22s on party.

so uh... the "only" thing keeping you from playing game A is that it's worse for you in every way you care about than game B that you also have access to?

interesting.

The book would be successful even if it only addressed low and mid level buy-ins.

I'm definitely writing a book at some point.

Look for it 3 years after the poker boom ends and nobody cares [img]/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img]
