The System

word type: noun

  1. The System is a rough tournament strategy outlined by David Sklansky in his book Tournament Poker for Advanced Players. It is designed for a total novice player and prescribes a formula for pushing allin with a range of suited high cards, connectors and pocket pairs.


In his book, Sklansky states that he devised the formula for an unnamed casino mogul who wanted to buy his daughter an entry into the WSOP as a gift. Rumor is that the casino boss was Bob Stupak.
