5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps up the high standards set by the first book., 12 Aug. 2005
Harrington follows on from the excellent first book with a book devoted in the main to the middle and later stages of tournaments. With the blinds rising and the stack sizes shrinking critical adjustments to your game need to be considered. Again the pages are laden with example hands that are full of information. Inflection points are discussed in depth, as are short handed play and the often over looked importance of having a solid heads up game. In fact the heads up section is the first book I have read that goes in to any depth on this subject. After reading these two books you'll be able to turn up at your local casino or card club confident that the decisions you make will be more informed and purposeful than before you sat down to read these two books. Only negative is that you are paying double price for what is just a long book, but it's superiority over lot of the others on the market make it a worthwhile investment.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fills in the gaps and then some..., 6 Jun. 2005
For the occasional to regular tournament player with a good grasp of most poker priciples this is invaluable. It brings together all the different aspects of tournament play, postition, stack size, opposition styles, pot odds, and makes you evaulate all of them. Before reading this I was aware of a lot of the plays Harrington describes, but I wasn't 100% sure why I was making them and why they were correct. He deals with a lot of situations where you are lost as to what to do and shows you how much more information there is out there. Havng read this book I now find myself in a lot less difficult situations and when I am in those difficult situations I can better guess the correct play.
In summary don't buy this book, because the more people who read it the less useful it will be to those that have!
