There is a lot of money to be made at small-stakes no-limit hold'em because...surprise, surprise...most of the players aren't very good.
However, few players understand exactly how to exploit these games. Competent players who generally play larger stakes will, of course, beat them. But they won't beat them for nearly as much as they ought to. Why? Because they don't understand how to adjust correctly.
Playing a solid, competent, decently aggressive style is a strategy that will be profitable. That said, you should not be content with just beating these games - you should be absolutely crushing them. The trick to doing this is to disregard a lot of “correct” poker and get way out of line at the right times. The methods required are far from obvious or intuitive but in Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em Jonathan Little explains them in great detail.
Jonathan constructs a basic strategy to crush small-stakes games and also identifies the adjustments that need to be made when facing more competent opposition.
You need this book if....
This audiobook is explained very diligently, containing factual information. It gets very complex at times with mathematical equations, but overall is a great and enjoyable to listen to.
This book is excellent for beginners who want to understand what they’re doing wrong, how they can approach poker in a winning way and how to understand their opponents better. However, it is simply not great as an audio book. While there is a way to access the numerous charts referenced in this book, if you’re going to download and follow along with them, you’re basically having to read with your eyes anyway. It’s extremely difficult to internalize charts without physically seeing those charts. So you HAVE to download them and follow along. Since that is the case, I wish I had just bought the book instead and will probably do so because I think it is an excellent study. Trying to get a lot from this while driving in a car is really falling short.
