Blind Stealing Guide – A New Perspective
Stealing the blinds is an extremely profitable technique for online poker. If you haven’t mastered blind stealing, you are leaving plenty of easy money on the table.
I explain blind stealing in our blind stealing guide, and offer you some strategies I’ve developed by investigating an database of 2 million poker hands from a range of player types.
