Quick Update

Hey guys just a quick update here since I haven't posted in awhile. I continue to work away at the book. I really thought this thing was only going to be a smaller eBook when I first got started, maybe 50-100 pages at most. Boy was I wrong.

It is pretty much for sure going to be a full length book at this point. And I am still adding content and have a big list of stuff that I still want to talk about. It really is amazing how many important concepts and ideas there are even at the lowest stakes of full ring.

But I don't want to miss anything so I am constantly jotting down notes on a certain types of spot that I need to talk about as I play poker each day. Thanks for the suggestions that I have already received and by all means leave more in the comments.

I hope you are all doing well. Thanks for all the comments and support here and elsewhere. It really means a lot to me. Here's a silly hand from the other day to close with.
