“The man in black fled across the desert and the gunslinger followed. The desert was the apotheosis of all deserts, huge, standing to the sky for what looked like eternity in all directions. It was white and blinding and waterless and without feature save for the faint, cloudy haze of the mountains which sketched themselves on the horizon and the devil-grass which brought sweet dreams, nightmares, death. An occasional tombstone sign pointed the way, for once the drifted track that cut its way through the thick crust of alkali had been a highway. Coaches and buckas had followed it. The world had moved on since then. The world had emptied.”
― Stephen King, The Gunslinger
It has now been several years since COSNG was first published. It is my belief that although now dated this is still one of the best SNG resources available, combining innovative new teaching styles with a new system of learning. But the world has moved on, and so have I. I can no longer claim to be current with the game and therefore want to make my final gift to the community a product that is so cheap that anyone can afford to learn from it.
I toyed with making the book a donation fee but to keep the videos and website online I came to the decision to ask just enough to hopefully float the website on a year to year basis. If you have always thought the price was too high, I can guarantee you now you will never find a better bang for your buck with a poker book. some day my hope is that the book will become free and open source. Until then, I leave you with this present of $9.99. If you prefer a physical copy it is also $9.99 on Amazon.com or whatever country you choose.
Its been about 9 months since COSNG hit Amazon.com and I am surprised that there are still no reviews up, despite having sold a good amount of copies through amazon.
Unlike some poker authors, I did not feel that it was appropriate to call a bunch of friends (or worse fabricate) a lot of positive reviews. However, I would be most grateful to see a few reviews online. I would never ask for anything other than the most fair and honest review that you can produce.
If you have the time please leave a review on Amazon.com. It would mean a great deal to me as these reviews are what help future customers decide whether or not to invest in the book.
Thanks again for your continued support.
I am happy to announce that the strategy sheets are now online! If you have lost them, or purchased from Amazon, you should be able to download them directly. They are located on their own separate page under the videos tab.
I’ve changed the video registration procedure so that you no longer need to email for a registration code. Simply use the last three words of Chapter 2 (no spaces or punctuation) as the registration code in field three of the registration form.
This is a brand new change so if you received an email with the old code, please disregard those instructions and instead use the last three words of Chapter 2.
More complete instructions are available if you navigate to the “Register” tab.
Its been a long time coming but a print version of the COSNG text is now available on Amazon.com and other Amazon sites. In the next week or two it will also be available at professionalpoker.com.
For some reason it doesn’t yet come up easily on the search function so if you type in the full name “crushing online sit and gos” it will pop up. The price will effectively be the same as here (when you include shipping) but Amazon is wacky and I really can’t control when they change the price.
I am pretty excited about this because lets face it, some people love print books and other people will never buy them now that they have e-readers. Now we have both options available which the I think is very cool.
A few notes about the print version: The print version comes with all the same video and tool access. However the print version does not come with .pdf, or soon to be available .epub and .mobi (kindle) files. Only people who have access to the ebook version will be able to get the full color e-reader compatible files.
I think this provides equal incentive for buying the ebook and the print version. I hope now everyone will have a format that they can love for the future. If for some reason this now rubs you the wrong way (you got the ebook but are upset that the print version was not available when you purchased) email me and its possible we can work something out.
Its been almost 2 years since Crushing Online Sit and Go’s initially went on sale. Thank you to everyone who has been a part of the early adoption community! However, all products have a product cycle, and for COSNG, it is time to drop the price.
The new list price is $49.95.
One of the reasons that the price remained high for so long is I have always been very uncomfortable with the idea of starting to charge less and having people who paid the initial price feel ripped off. I hope that everyone who purchased at $69.00 (or more) feels that there was value in having the book sooner and that it was well worth the extra $20. But to ease my own mind, I am offering a few things depending on when you purchased.
1. Purchasers who bought directly through COSNG.com after January 1, 2014 will have the difference between their price and the new price refunded. This will happen automatically within the next few days.
2. Purchasers who bought prior to January 1, 2014 will be given a credit for a new product I am co-developing with Collin Moshman that should be available in the summer of 2014. I don’t want to spill too many details about this new project but anyone who enjoyed COSNG will IMO be very excited about it.
So hopefully those two solutions will be enough to ease any pain associated with the price drop.
If you have been on the fence about the price of the book and waiting to buy, with the price <50% of the initial list price, this is a great time to buy COSNG and get going on your New Year’s SNG Goals!

Its almost 2014 and I’ve had a few New Years resolutions that I decided to start on early.
The first thing I wanted to do was automate the video signup process. I think I have created a good solution. However, in order to automate video access I have had to remove a lot of garbage accounts from the website. I had to do it pretty fast and there is a possibility that a few real active accounts may have been caught up in the shuffle. If for some reason I deleted your account, please email me and I’ll get you signed back up immediately.
The next thing I wanted to do was to make new versions of the book and strategy sheets available for direct download through the website. Since only registered users will have access now to the website I should be able to make this happen. Check back in the next week or two because the new book version is done and I am working on the strategy sheets now. Since I have captured everyone’s email address now that is registered, I’ll probably be emailing out announcements when new versions are posted. If you don’t like getting these kinds of emails, simply email me back to be removed from the distro list.
There are a few other exciting things coming down the pike but for now those will remain “To Do’s” which I expect will be done in the next couple months.
Happy New Years!
Focus Lessons 1-5 are now active. The purpose of these videos is to distill the COSNG Ebook text into lessons that help focus on the most fundamental concepts of the ebook for quicker assimilation of the key concepts. Watching these videos as you read the book will help to learn the information for each specific phase of the game more efficiently and help to start winning immediately!
These are the exact concepts that I focus on in my beginner package for one on one coaching! If you are struggling with certain phases of the game, you don’t need a coach, you just need these videos!
You should see this video as in the pull-down menu to the “Training Videos” tab if you are already registered for COSNG content.
Well its been almost a year since I first published Crushing Online SNG’s. It’s been quite a success, although the growing pains have been there. It is my hope that you have received not only a quality product and consider the investment you have made, money well spent.
Crushing Online SNG’s is now entering a new phase of existence, and in the coming months I will be unveiling some new and exciting things for you guys and gals, adding more value to the investment you have already made.
The first thing you will be seeing is a bunch more videos that will be free to people who purchased Crushing Online SNG’s! Unfortunately, they will not be in the format of the current videos. The interactive videos simply took too much time and effort to produce to make them an effective use of my time. I would estimate at a minimum they took 50h to produce each video. In the time that it took to produce just one video, I think I can provide you with a lot more information.
So, my plan is to roll out a set of videos I call “Virtual Coaching.” These videos will be a HH review of 9 player SNG’s focusing on the key concepts that I teach in my coaching, exactly like I teach them. Each will walk through the low, mid, bubble, and endgame topics with hand histories focusing on the concepts that I would focus on with a beginning player. If you have been working with the book and are looking for more information about the thought process necessary to implement the concepts with specific hands, in specific spots, this will be a major boost to the book information.
So as the videos are released, I will provide announcements about each video’s release as they are added to the COSNG video library. It is my sincere pleasure to bring more value to the book that is already becoming recognized as one of the premier resources for learning how to profitably play SNG’s in this new tougher poker environment. Consider this a major “Thank You” to all of you early adopters that took a risk on COSNG.
