Only about a third of online tournament players are profitable. And with higher tournament fees and dealer tipping, the percentage of profitable live tournament players is probably even smaller. Just becoming a break-even tournament player is an accomplishment especially because today's players are tougher than ever. But who plays poker to break even? "Tournament Killer Poker by the Numbers" shows you how to play for blood.

You'll learn:
The importance of blind structure and payout structure
How to map relative chip counts to monetary equity
When to accumulate chips
When to preserve chips

And much more
