The Micro Stakes Playbook

My name is Nathan "BlackRain79" Williams. I have played poker professionally for over 10 years now. I am best known for having some of the highest winnings in online poker history at the micro stakes.

I am also the author of two of the most popular poker books ever written on these limits, "Crushing the Microstakes" and "Modern Small Stakes." And I have coached 100's more students to success at these stakes.

But even after all this, something still didn't seem right.

The problem is that I still receive emails and comments on a regular basis from people who are struggling to beat the micros. In some cases they haven't even managed to turn a profit at the very lowest limits yet!

And often when I have a look at some of their hands I can tell right away why this is the case. They are making what I would consider to be the 2nd or even 3rd best decision in many key situations at the lower limits.

So this is why I decided to write The Micro Stakes Playbook.

Because I love it when people send me their results that look like this instead!

You see poker is actually an extremely simple game when you really think about it. You really only have a handful of options in any situation. You can,

  • Bet
  • Raise
  • Call
  • Fold

And the only thing that really separates the pros from everybody else is that they tend to choose the most profitable option on a more consistent basis.

That is, they make the best decision possible, something that I also call "the great play" more consistently than everybody else. And this is exactly what The Micro Stakes Playbook teaches you how to do.

This book is my ultimate "playbook" for the micros. It teaches you exactly what the best strategy is against each player in every situation at the lower stakes.

Because believe me, once you learn the correct strategy to crush these games, then it becomes as simple as sitting down and printing money at the poker tables.


The Micro Stakes Playbook covers:
  • All small stakes games online (NL2 - NL200)
  • 6-max and Full Ring
  • All Zoom style fast fold games
  • Low limit live games ($1/$2 - $10/$20)
  • Low to mid stakes buyin tournaments

But let me warn you right off the bat though that this is NOT a beginner's book.

For instance, The Micro Stakes Playbook will not teach you what hands to play preflop, how much to bet and so on (although most of this is actually covered in the free bonus guides).

If you are brand new to poker, or having trouble beating the very lowest stakes, then I would suggest picking up one of my previous books first, Crushing the Microstakes in particular.

This is where every basic fundamental detail of the game is covered.

The Micro Stakes Playbook is instead a pure strategy book. Each chapter is laser focused on the specific plays that are going to take your game to the next level at these stakes and finally get you winning big and crushing the games.

Some of these strategies are extremely basic such as exploitative blind stealing and 3Betting against the overly tight and simple regulars that you often find at the very lowest limits like NL2 and NL5.

And some of the strategies are highly advanced such as complex multi-street calldowns versus the good, highly aggressive regulars that you will often encounter at higher limits like NL50 and NL100.

There are also over 50 highly detailed hand history examples throughout the book to show you exactly how to implement these strategies against real opponents in real situations at the micros.

The common theme throughout every "play" in this book though is that they are intended for you to take them to the tables immediately and start finally creating big time poker results for yourself.

Because let me tell you, poker is a heck of a lot more fun when you know how to absolutely crush the games! And that is exactly what The Micro Stakes Playbook teaches you to do.

Simple Proven Strategies

The other thing that you will quickly notice about The Micro Stakes Playbook is that unlike most other poker books there is no complicated math, no complex formulas to follow, no "game theory optimal" strategies or other such nonsense.

And the reason why is that you don't actually need to know any of this stuff in order to crush the micros. After all, these are the stakes where you are going to find some of the worst poker players in the world!

What you will find instead are straight forward common sense strategies that actually work against real opponents in real situations at the micros stakes.

And this is because The Micro Stakes Playbook is based off of my 10+ years (and 10+ million hands) of pro level experience in these games with some of the highest winnings ever recorded.

This has given me a unique insight into these games that other poker books simply cannot teach you. I know first hand exactly what works and what doesn't at the micros. I don't need to speculate or discuss "theories."

The Micro Stakes Playbook provides you with the real proven strategies that crush the micro stakes games in 2020.

Nothing more and nothing less.

Real Poker Results Now

Some people spend years and years at the micro stakes spinning their tires and never really getting the results that they want. They will often tell themselves that they are somewhere "around breakeven."

I know that somewhere around breakeven isn't good enough for me. Is it for you?

What I liked the most about The Micro Stakes Playbook was how Nathan made things so clear that no doubt is left to the reader. I think he really hit what the vast majority of people want, make things simple when there's no need for complexity (I believe there's little need for complex math formulas to beat the micros). This book shows exactly what to do and when to do it.
