Reviews - What do customers think about Poker on the Internet, 2nd?
Outdated poor value Oct 6, 2005
This book will do little to help your play but may help you learn how to sign up and play online.A great deal of this book looks like an informational for poker sites and the information is mostly inaccurate due to the time when this book was wrote.I wouldnt recommend this book to anyone and certain parts of the book are very misleading.A miss for me even though I respect the author Andrew Kinsman.
No Big Winner in My Book Aug 8, 2005
I purchased this book because of the very positive reviews. After reading the book I was quite disappointed. The very positive reviews were not accurate. This is not a four or five star book. Its marginally adequate, nothing more. The information is very generic; narrow in scope, with no great insights.
In addition to being informationally weak, I felt the author was subtly pushing several internet poker sites. Parts of the book read more like an infomercial than an unbiased informational book. Upon finishing the book, I was left feeling disappointed. The book did not deliver.
As an alternative selection, I highly recommend "Winning at Internet Poker for Dummies". Although I find the title "for Dummies" offensive, the book is excellent, offering indepth, thorough discussions of the various topics involved with internet poker.
Great book for beginner to low-intermeidate Dec 3, 2004
Great beginners and low-intermediate guide. If this is your first holdem book, or you've put in a few hundred hours online in low limits but are eying the online game, then you can't go wrong. This is a very thorough book and covers all the basic strategies at every stage of the game. Andrew Kinsman takes a very "user friendly" approach to describing the game and fundamental strategies thoroughly. Kinsman also addresses the specific techniques applicable to online play. Highly recommended!
