Excellent short game book! Jun 24, 2008
Most of the games i play in, are full table games, till the last table, and that's where this book is really helpful. The people who wrote this book, are very knowledgeable, thanks for all your hard work. JK.
A magnificent piece of Literature Jan 7, 2008
As soon as I started reading this book I knew that would be a good one. Terry immediately gets you interested, it's as if he's talking to you face to face like a coach. I feel as though the knowledge I gained from this book was worth 500 hours of playing. Terry discusses every day limit holdem hands and situations that occur regularly, and discusses various moves that you can make for these situations. He explains all this with the utmost common sense leaving you feeling as though your learning something new all the time. Not only that but he explains how you can use tracking tools to give yourself an edge and other things like rakeback and poker psychology. It is great all-round. I believe Terry has put years of experience into this book. It is a piece of work and I have gained more knowledge from this book than any other I have read so far, which include all of Harringtons. If Terry ever writes a book again i'll be first to buy it. I hope I never play anyone who has read this book at the tables.
Excellent limit hold'em (6 or less) book Jan 3, 2008
I found this a valuable addition to my poker library (25+ books). Very good presentation of the material and a good choice (or substitute) prior to tackling "Winning in Tough Hold 'em Games: Short-Handed and High-Stakes Concepts and Theory for Limit Hold 'em".
An easy purchase Dec 28, 2007
There is more to this book than how to play the game well. It also covers key concepts that many books just scratch the surface of.
Things like, Player Modeling, Table Selection, Statistics, Standard Deviation,
If any of those above concepts are alien to you, that alone is reason to click the "add to cart" button.
It also has a section for "super-short" games, where the game only has 2-4 players in it. It is almost impossible to find information on games like this. And yes, the game changes drastically as the players lessen at the table.
It's 362 pages of jam-packed poker goodness that will pay itself off for you(as it has me many times over within the span of 2 months)
The only bad thing about this book...is that it ends.
Justly Celebrated. Oct 13, 2007
I am not a limit guy at all, but knowing the short-handed game in general is a major goal of mine so that is why I picked up this book. A ton of the players I know have been talking about and making posts regarding Winning Short-handed Strategies for the past month. Just about everything they said has been really positive. So, I took a chance on it. As there seem to be delivery problems with this edition (at least here in the states), I got it quickly from one of the z shops instead of ordering it from the central warehouse. I have just finished it and the one thing I have to say is that it lives up to its hype. The authors tell you just about everything you need to know about short-handed limit. The game itself is a product of online play and that is where you will need to log in if you want to perfect your craft. Incidentally, this is the best D&B book I have ever read. They seem to be a company on the rise. This offering is as good as what the masters, Two Plus Two, normally put out.
