In February I started writing a book. Not sure where I got the motivation to start this project. I suppose I just have so many things to say and to put them all down in posts one at a time didn't seem like the best way to get the information out. My working title for the book is "The Poker Player's Guide to Maximizing Life EV". Not sure if I'll stick with this, but it's the best idea I've had since I've been working on it. The book is going to be about 100 pages and it will cover all aspects of the life of a poker player.
The chapters in the book are:
1. Physical Health
3. Money Management
4. Mental Health
After going back and re-watching some of my last strategy video releases on Run It Once, they were difficult to watch as the information was so outdated. I didn't want to write a book that would become outdated in a few years, so there are no specific strategies regarding how to play hands in the book. Poker concepts I do talk about are things like:
When to play
Where to play
What stakes to play and 'moving up'
Having a healthy amount of respect for your opponents
Studying top players
Understanding variance -- writing this part was actually very interesting as I compiled as many hand histories as I could, totaling over 1 million, and I analyzed them against a variance calculator to see how I ran compared to how I should have run. There were some very interesting findings regarding how long you can expect downswings and breakeven stretches to occur based on winrate.
I don't expect this book to make me any significant amount of money. I wrote it because I just had so much to say. I went through a lot of struggles from my teenage years through my late twenties. Finding the solutions to those problems has given me a lot of knowledge that I feel when imparted on a lot of other people, will significantly improve their lives. I wrote extensively about why so many people are feeling depressed today. One tip I write about in the book is how to never catch another cold again. There are other tricks I explain like how to use credit cards to take free trips, and how to optimize this process.
The book is nearly finished and I've just hired an editor, so it's about to enter the editing and formatting stage. I don't know when the book will be out, but it's definitely coming in the next few months, and will be available on this website, as well as on Amazon and some other places.
