About the Book

Stop Losing is a beginner’s guide to playing winning poker. Some of the concepts are remarkably easy to understand and implement, while others will require more finesse. In this ebooklet, you'll learn to:

  • Play with players weaker than you
  • Understand relative strength
  • Put your opponent on a range
  • Learn the odds

And much, much more.

This is still a work in progress. All of the 10 steps are written, with some polish yet to be applied.
