Well I am writing it.
I have technically been working it for nearly a year now. I have just recently decided to get serious about it though. This book is far different in scope and much more difficult to write though. I actually wrote CTM in about 2 months albeit I was working on it nearly every day for sometimes as much as 10-12 hours. This includes the editing time as well which I did all myself.
CTM is a book for beginners and people struggling at the lowest stakes though. While many strategies within it apply at all levels of the game it is most directly applicable to NL2, NL5, NL10 and the lowest limit live games. The games where the straight forward, unbalanced and highly exploitative style of play discussed in CTM still yields big winrates.
By NL25 things change quite a bit though. Fish are more scarce and the regs are much, much better than at the lower stakes. These are the first limits where you need to start figuring out how to balance your range, assess your opponent's range on the fly, 4bet light, bluff raise, triple barrel, float effectively and so much more. There is simply so much more that goes into "crushing" these stakes that writing a book about it is a lot harder.
I am up for the challenge though and it does feel good to be writing again. My goal is to create the best book ever written on these stakes. It will be massive and comprehensive. I have no timetable for it's release but I am definitely hoping and expecting to make it available before the end of this year. My plan for the next month or two is just to work on it everyday. I will keep you all up to date.
For those curious, there is no title at this point. I prefer to figure that out after it is written anyways. It will very likely NOT be called Crushing the Microstakes 2 though. If anyone has any suggestions feel free to let me know in the comments!
And lastly, I have recently created a newsletter to accompany this blog. I plan to send out tips, info, articles and maybe some videos on a weekly basis on anything and everything micro stakes. I think this will help me stay connected with my regular readers and add a little bit more value that cannot be found here on the blog. I will also be able to keep people updated on the progress of the book. You can sign up for the newsletter in the form below.
