Who Should Read This Book
How often have you bought a book only to discover that it wasn't what you were after? Before you spend your money on this book, you should know if it's right for you. So,
Read this book if:
- You have played some poker, but have never played hold'em and you'd like to give it a try. Maybe it just showed up in your Thursday night home game. Maybe you just moved into a town where they have public cardrooms. Maybe you're getting ready for a trip to Las Vegas and want to spend some time playing poker. If you read this book through once, you'll be able to sit down and hold your own in just about any low-limit hold'em game.
- You've been playing hold'em for a month, or a year, or ten years, and you just can't beat it. You see the chips flying around the table, and once in a while you have to borrow a laundry bag to carry your winnings out, but sometimes you have to borrow the laundry bag to cover the upper half of your body. This book will help you find the problems in your game and correct them.
- You're holding your own in low-limit hold'em games. Occasionally, players will get up and leave when they see you sit down. Nevertheless, you think that you might be missing an extra bet or two every session. This book may give you some ideas on how to find that extra bet.
Don't read this book if:
- You've never played poker. If that's the case, then we strongly urge you to buy Fundamentals of Poker by Mason Malmuth and Lynne Loomis or Poker for Dummies by Richard Harroch and Lou Krieger. Read and start playing. Then come back here and start reading.
- You're routinely crushing the competition in a $30-$60 hold'em game in southern California. You don't need this book. However, we suggest that you frequently review Hold'em Poker for Advanced Players by David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth.
We hope you'll find this book worth reading.
