Mastering Small Stakes Cash Games is a book where the key word is “mastering”. The author, Evan Jarvis, is a professional poker player and highly respected poker coach. He takes a slightly different approach to that used by most poker coaches. The absolute fundamental, as always, is to help players master cash game play but Jarvis takes a holistic approach, recognising that being able to master people and master yourself are equally important in order to achieve poker success. In order to succeed in cash play it is essential to have a rock solid pre-flop and post-flop game-plan. However, there are other factors to successful play (e.g. game selection, seat selection, buy-in level etc.) that are often neglected. These can be equally important and are all addressed. Do you want to… Make a good side income from your hobby? Feel confident and in control when you play? Be satisfied with your performance at the end of every session, regardless of the outcome? Mastering Small Stakes Cash Games will help you achieve these aims and much more besides.   


It is well known that tournaments are almost always the most profitable form of poker for skilled players. The considerable prize money on offer usually means that many of the participants (especially in the small stakes events) are amateurs with limited poker skills and experience who are hoping to get lucky. This scenario has the potential to be a very profitable one for players with a good understanding of tournament strategy. Playing good solid poker will undoubtedly be profitable but may also leave a lot of money on the table. In order to maximize Expected Value in all situations (the key to becoming a really successful tournament player) it is crucial to understand the mistakes the weaker players are making and exploit them ruthlessly. In Mastering Small Stakes No-Limit Tournaments Lexy Gavin-Mather, a professional player and well known coach, outlines a solid basic strategy for tournament play at the small stakes and also identifies how and when to adjust profitably. If you play a lot of small stakes tournaments this book will prove invaluable in fine tuning your game and turning you from a tournament winner into a tournament crusher.    


Welcome to the wonderful world of Pot Limit Omaha! With four hole cards instead of two, PLO is a far more nuanced game than No-Limit Hold’em and one that emphatically rewards greater skill.

Fernando “JNandez” Habegger is a successful high stakes professional player and leading PLO coach with his own training site at He has trained hundreds of players to become successful at PLO. In Mastering Small Stakes Pot-Limit Omaha, preflop play is broken down by identifying nine different hand categories and analysing how hands within each of them are handled preflop. Postflop analysis is based around the powerful technique of the Four Pillars of Postflop Play. The combination of these two creates a powerful gameplan that constitutes a fast track route to domination at the lower stakes. Further topics include adjusting to live play, PLO tournaments, building the right improvement habits, dealing with variance, and managing your PLO bankroll.
