Inhaltsangabe

Ace King is a massively profitable hand. In fact, AK is in the top-5 percent of winning hands and accounts for a good chunk of your win rate. But despite that fact, many players are confused about how to approach this hand. Should you 3bet it preflop, or just call it? Should you play the suited and offsuit versions the same, or differently? Should you c-bet with air, or check instead? And how many streets of value is top pair really worth?  

Most players struggle with AK due to small leaks in their strategy. So Optimizing Ace King (OAK) doesn't look to give you a bunch of memorized plays and tactics. Instead, OAK shows you how AK fits within your strategy and ranges. This prepares you for playing AK, among other hands, in a variety of spots and under a variety of conditions.  

James "SplitSuit" Sweeney and Adam "W34Z3L" Jones co-wrote this book to take an in-depth look at poker strategy through the lens of a single hand. Concepts include 3betting, 4betting, cbetting, barreling, GTO vs. exploitative play, and deducing lines from GTO solver output.   

You will play AK 99.9 percent of the time you are dealt it, and since it makes up such a large chunk of your win rate, doesn't it make sense to strengthen your approach with it? Each chapter builds upon the last, walking you through preflop play, flop play (when you hit, miss, and flop draws), and turn + river play. Plus there is an entire chapter full of examples and a chapter dedicated strictly to tournaments.   

If your win rate with AK could use a boost, invest a few chips and see the ROI in no time at all!  

(The foreword is written by legendary poker author Ed Miller.)

Insightful and theoretically sound

First and foremost, it's hard to pack poker related content into this medium. It requires revisting the content after listening. It requires also time and discipline, but it will pay off. I was just looking forward to get a audio book like this. This book has many break points marked with "stop and ponder the following question" - so there is a lot of room for your own improvement.

James Sweeney is one of the most comprehsensive poker coaches. This book will give you a feeling how strong AK will actually be. It teaches you strategy. Before reading it, I often bluffed my shirt off with Ace King because off blocker effects. You don't need to do this in most cases. The book teaches you whats your AK worth. But it doesn't stop there. It shows you how to study. For me it's like a methodology exemplarily applied to AK. You can replicate this on your own for other hands e.g. 87 or suited connectors in general.

There is one drawback though. You have to be willing to study poker, not only playing. This time "off the felt" will help you to get a better understanding of the game - and of course - there is a potential that the study helps you win. But you can't expect instandly be able to play AK perfectly after reading this work. You need to do the research on your own.

Also James was so kind to offer me the digital version too - after buying this audio book - so just ask him and he will help you out.

To conclude, I highly recommend this book for the mediocre to regular poker player. Even pros would enjoy the presented content.
Starters in the game should also take much out of the book, but they would be willing to learn many of the required basics.
If you just knowing the basic rules of the game and want to become better the book is not for you.
