Product Description

Kill Everyone took the poker world by storm when it was first released in 2007. Its perfect blend of real-time experience, poker math, and computational horsepower created new concepts and advanced strategies never before seen in print for multi-table tournament, sit-n-gos and satellites. In this revised and expanded second edition, Kill Everyone adds even more ammunition to a tournament-poker-player's arsenal. In addition to groundbreaking analysis of fear-and-fold equity and equilibrium, plus the presentation of optimal strategies for the bubble, the end-game, and heads-up play, this second edition adds 50 pages of incisive commentary from the hottest tournament-poker player in the world, Bertrand "Elky" Grospellier, and a new chapter on short-stack cash games to go with the original discussion of playing in short-handed cash games. With a foreword by 2006 World Series of Poker champion Joe Hachem, annotations by Elky, and solid math-based strategies from Lee Nelson, Tysen Streib, Steven Heston and Mark Vos, Kill Everyone packs more poker brainpower between two covers than any book to come before it.

Format: Paperback
I got this book myself and wanted to write a review but then I saw this review on the 2+2 website which explains it much better then I ever could. Thanks Foucoult!

According to their introduction, the authors of Kill Everyone set out "to marry poker math with real-time experiences to provide a sound approach to recurring situations you'll encounter as you accumulate chips and approach the money" in poker tournaments. Although the book does contain a healthy mix of math and tactics, I can't agree that the two are married. In fact, they are rather bifurcated: Lee Nelson writes largely about the latter in two sections of the book, while Tysen Streib focuses on the former in his "Endgame Strategy" section.

The Streib section is fantastic, easily some of the best poker writing I've seen and well worth the cover price in its own right. Nelson's material is more hit-or-miss. He explains a lot of concepts and plays well, though many will be familiar to successful internet players already, and at times his presentation is distracting or downright misleading. On the whole, Kill Everyone is a solid tournament book, and even the "bonus" short-handed cash game section by Mark Vos is pretty strong.

Not only is Streib's contribution excellent, it's also especially valuable because it focuses on late game and final table play, where the stakes are at their highest. Central to Streib's analysis are some concepts he calls CPR (cost-per-round, or the sum of the blinds and antes), CSI (chip status index, which, like Harrington's M, tells you how many more rounds you can survive without winning a pot), and the bubble factor (a measure of the non-linear value of chips based on stack sizes and payout structure).

To echo the previous reviewers, this book is absolute quality. A superb tool for tournament play. The info on shoving and calling ranges is especially good.

Minor quibbles (which don't prevent the 5 star rating).

- the 6 max / shorthanded section looks a bit of an afterthought

- given the title of this book, I'm reluctant to take it on my holidays/ through customs.

Format: Paperback
The 1st edition of this book was fundamental in helping me to develop a relatively unexploitable style of play, the kind of play that infuriates opponents and makes them swear at you in the chat box. As a schoolteacher, I prefer to play a small amount of smart poker (not more than 20 hours a week) rather than play lots of poker. The last thing I need is to tire myself out mass multitabling and straining my brain cells due to a bunch of difficult decisions. I much prefer the route of unexploitability, where I am the long-run statistical winner even if I lose a hand.

I got the 2nd edition because Elky is someone whom I hold a great deal of respect for. When I heard that the 2nd edition would include commentary from Elky, I just had to buy it.

A very interesting addition to the book was on shorthanded, shortstack cash play. Although, the authors have held back with some of the maths, a mathematician with half a brain will be able to use that chapter as a foundation to develop, over the course of a week or so, a reasonably unexploitable and solid shortstack game in a shorthanded context. Before others come here and start berating me for being a proponent of the shortstack philosophy, I think such people need to ask themselves WHY they play poker ? Do they play for fun or do they play for profits? If the latter, they should remain silent. Shortstacking is most certainly within the rules of play, and the chapter in this book is a useful addition to the very scarce literature available on this niche form of poker.

This book is a BUY !!

A great poker book. There was a couple of new strategies and processes I had not heard about before. It give good breakdown of the maths behind them with examples. It is also good to have the comments from Elky. I would recommend this book.

Format: Paperback
So I started playing poker around 1 year ago, I have read many books and lost a lot of money on-line.
After reading the first few chapters I couldn't believe some of the comments and theories as they were completely opposite to the play tight and use this hand chart for position x at the table.
I decided to invest some more money into my account and test the strategies, mainly playing 360 players SitnGo tournaments.
I came first after just the 4th try and now regularly make cashes in the first few slots.

My advice is to buy this book, read it once, then read it again and test some of the strategies and insight from Poker pro "Elky". This book has really changed my perspective on the game and has helped me cash on various tournaments.
I am now testing the strategies on the 10 player SitnGo at micro stakes and ham doing well, my bank role is steadily increasing.

Format: Kindle Edition
This book is a hard read but by no means impossible to digest. You could read 2 or 3 books in the same time though as there is some fairly heavy math to get your head around.
Out of all the poker books I have read ( over 20 books plus online articles and coaching videos) this is the only one that had a detrimental effect on my game.
I would only recommend this book to someone who was new to poker and binked a seat in a wsop high roller or some tournament where the standard is going to be fantastically high. It makes your game un-exploitable which is fine if I was going to sit down with Ivey, Selbst, Trickett and Esfandieri tomorrow. This leads me on to my biggest problem with this book you can not improve if you adopt an unexploitable game. Putting all the emphasis on pre flop action is just a defensive "I will not be exploited and I hope for a neutral expectation". Why would anyone think this is helpful.
Basically there is a trade off between being unexploitable and playing an adaptive game to exploit the tendencies of others. 3 months ago I decided I was going to stop trying to play unexploitably I wasn't going to bother balancing my ranges and I also started to adjust my bet sizing more to exploit others tightness/looseness. The fish don't notice if your range is balanced and they probably don't care. That's the fish. the regs are often to busy multitabling to notice as well. I became a consistent winning player with a decnt roi when I strted playing sng after reading moshmans book and after I decided to forget everything I ever read in this awful book.
