Play-chips poker strategy

On the weekends, the ultra-low-buyin real money THNL games look much like the ultra-low-buyin play chip (ULBPC) THNL games. The Pizza Hut delivery boys have cashed their paychecks and they’re looking for a good time. You, of course, want to take their chips (either real or fake).

PokerStars player Rob "rsnbrgr" Rosenberger specializes in the play chip 50,000+800 nine-player THNL sit&go events. He gives away millions each year in play chip "gifts" in memory of his late wife.

Any good player can scale a fish — but how do you deal with a whole school of fish? How can you protect aces before the flop when five fish will call a 10xBB raise with any two cards?

This online booklet teaches you how to conquer the ULBPC sit&go events.

You might wonder what compelled me to write this. Believe it or not, I wrote it for myself. You see, I used to habitually lose money in cheap weekend tourneys & cash games. It finally dawned on me that in poker, a “fish” behaves like any one mindless piranha — and likewise, a poker table full of fish behaves like a mindless school of piranha.

In 2007 I took a five-month sabattical from “regular” poker just so I could learn how a school of fish behaves. I did my research in the PokerStars ultra-low-buyin play chip events where you can always find a school of fish.

A typical example where six players go all in before the very first flop.  Pocket 8s made quads with the turn and river.

Writing this online booklet did wonders for my poker strategy. I no longer habitually lose money in cheap weekend tournaments & cash games…
