Publisher's Summary

How to Study Poker is the first of its kind: a poker book that teaches you how to work out poker strategies for yourself on and off the felt.
It's intended for No Limit Hold'em players, both live and online, who want to improve their poker game and are willing to put in the time necessary to learn the skills that will propel them through poker's ranks.
If you're tired of passively learning poker from videos, reading books and articles, listening to podcasts, and attending webinars, then the 27 Action Steps contained within are just what you've been waiting for. Simply wanting to improve and doing the bare minimum of study just isn't enough. You must set a goal for your poker journey; you need to have a plan to develop the skills that will get you there, and you need to systematically work on building these skills one at a time. This style of purposeful practice is what you've been looking for.
Also contained within are over 25 different study methods:

Many off-the-felt methods of study are covered, like hand history reviews with PokerTracker 4 and Flopzilla, daily studies, journaling, study groups, mind maps, flash cards, and better learning from poker content.
On-the-felt study methods like FOCUS sessions, volume sessions, warm-up and cool-downs, as well as the single most beneficial yet underutilized technique available to you: Poker Game Tape

How to Study Poker gives you the study techniques you need to up your skills to compete in today's games.

This book will improve your profitability!!!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have read many many poker books. I have often gotten a few tips and tricks and usually improved my game slightly by most of the common poker books are limited in their scope, Sky's approach offers a lot more! Sky gives the tools that enable one to continuously improve their poke game (my second favorite poker book is The Mental Game of Poker). This book and Sky's podcasts have allowed me to improve my profitability massively! I have gone from being a losing player to a winning player. I have played 40,000 hands since studying with Sky's technique am winning over 5 BBs per 100 BBs vs the 40,000 hands previous which were -20 BBs. THANK YOU.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Study Poker, Volume 1q?

Continuous improvement. Giving me the skills to improve and innovate my own game. The skills to see my leaks.

Have you listened to any of Sky Matsuhashi’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This book is the perfect companion to the Podcasts.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Learning to analyse my own hands and my frequencies has been invaluable.

Any additional comments?

Awesome book for any poker player who wants to play a better game, make profit and CRUSH.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

YES...... Easy to listen to and easy to understand. The narrator doesn't act like he's in a hurry to read the material and get it over with.

What was one of the most memorable moments of How to Study Poker, Volume 1q?

In Chapter 5,Utilizing The Learning Process Model. The quote from Helen Hayes, "The expert in anything was once a beginner." Makes me feel like its ok to start over again even though I've failed many times.

Which scene was your favorite?

In Chapter 14, Control Tilt With Logic Statements. Another great Quote, "Anger is only one letter short of danger", by Eleanor Roosevelt. Coming to grips with Tilt makes all the difference in the world. For me Tilt was like a bad habit that I just couldn't brake. An addiction too strong to concur. But by injecting the carefully crafted logic statements into my head I've gotten past my negative emotions. Now I play my best regardless of what the cards bring me.

What’s an idea from the book that you will remember?

There is no way of succeeding with out Strong Study Habits. I'm living proof of this fact. I've read many poker books over the years that I never studied. And then I would wondered why I wasn't getting better. No one had taken the time to write a book on how to study poker until Sky Matsuhashi came along.

Any additional comments?

Many poker books will start off by saying if your a beginning poker player this book isn't for you. So when I tried to find a beginner poker book it would take me just so far and then leave me hanging. It would just assume I should know this or that. And then there are the poker courses where the instructor thinks you should already know this or that. And when there teaching they talk so fast you can't understand them and they won't sell you there manuscripts so you can review on your own. And then there are those that get you to buy there book and when you ask them for a video series that goes over their book they try to sell you a $500 online poker course. To me that feels like a bate and switch deal. These and many other reasons are why I completely endorse Sky Matsuhashi and all of his Poker Teaching material. He provides you free of charge a download of all of his Podcast shows. He's not going to rip you off with any bate and switch deals. I feel like I have finally found the Poker Teacher and Author that I've been looking for, for a long time. I'm looking forward to his next book that may come out in July of this year. I feel like Sky is the teacher that gets me and knows how to teach me where I can finally learn.

Every poker player should read this book!

This book has revolutionised the way I learn poker. I have been flipping from one thing to another poker thing all my life. This book puts it in black & white how to properly study and really learn from all the poker information you have. It seems so easy once someone tells you how to really learn.
