Win Your Way Into Big Money Hold'em Tournaments
How to Beat Casino and Online Satellite Poker Tournaments
Brad Daugherty and Tom McEvoy

Win Your Way Into Big Money Hold' Em Tournaments focuses on the
variety of satellite and super-satellite options available to poker
players. These tournaments represent opportunities for people to play their way into big tournaments for a relatively small investment. McEvoy and Daugherty begin their book by
describing the different sorts of satellites that one can enter.
Although this section only occupies about the first 55 pages of the
book, it is an incredible drag. The rest of the book is stage-by-stage
advice for how to play the different types of satellites.
The beginning of the book contains very little poker advice, as the authors instead waste time

The advice for limit satellites is of a similar caliber. There does happen to be some
decent advice for re-buy tournaments, concerning when you should
re-buy and when you should just walk away.
The presentation of this book is hurt by the reality that the authors
don't really have enough to write about to construct a 300-page book
on satellites. The fact that "Moneymaker parlayed $39 into $2.5
million in 2003" is referenced time after time, sometimes for no
Similarly, the authors keep going back to the idea
that in most cases, they think a player should only attempt to win his
way in to a tournament through a single-table satellite two or three
times. This manages to make the book drag while also insulting the
