Description

Dusty Schmidt is known as the definitive “grinder,” with a legendary ability to focus during marathon online-poker sessions while playing as many as 20 hands at a time. But this isn’t the ability to which he attributes his success. Instead, Schmidt says his multi-million dollar achievements are due to his ability to apply old-fashioned business concepts to the game of poker.

Six years into his career, Schmidt’s resume is legendary: Nearly 10 million hands and 15,000 hours played. Mind-blowing win rates spanning massive sample sizes. $5 million won, and never a losing month. With Treat Your Poker Like A Business, Schmidt teaches other online poker players to monetize their abilities as he did. He shows readers how to manage bankroll, rationalize variance, move up in stakes, avoid tilt, create new sources of revenue, and most importantly, become more profitable.

Just as Moneyball did for baseball, Treat Your Poker Like A Business gives players an entirely new way to gain a competitive advantage.
