great book Jul 8, 2008
This book unlocked some major flows in my game,
not really for beginners but I think anyone with a fair understanding of starting hands would hugely benefit from the book
hypothetical situations ruin book Feb 7, 2008
I have read Byron Jacobs's articles at cardplayer online and have found them to be interesting. This book, however, is seriously flawed. The reader is constantly distracted by hypothetical situations injected into every hand discussed in the book.
You Will Know if you can play after reading this book Oct 19, 2007
This is a quiz book. A very good quiz book. Its not easy. It will seperate the intermediate from the very good poker player. For the very top level player, you may argue with some of it, but its still helpful. I recommend it.
Excellent book for the ADVANCED player. Apr 7, 2007
Do not believe the negative reviews that have been written about this book. They are written by the very people for whom this type of book is useless, namely rank beginners who are nowhere near ready for an advanced text such as this one.
I'll keep this review short, this is an excellent book for somewhat more experienced players; for a beginning player the book is a waste of time. Some of the problems are extremely difficult and are designed to test the knowledge of players who are already proven winners in limit hold 'em and are looking to advance to higher limit games against higher caliber opponents.
If you are already a good hold 'em player and are looking to find out just HOW good you are, read this book and test yourself. It is very educational and will certainly get you thinking about the game on a higher level. If you are a beginner, don't bother. Without trying to come across as condescending, I would guess that this book will be way over your head.
There is nothing worse than people writing negative reviews about something that is way over their heads and that they are incapable of understanding yet that is exactly what has happened when people say ridiculous things like they use this book for toilet paper. Go out and buy "Getting started in hold 'em" and work on that before you start reviewing advanced books that are way out of your league.
good stuff Mar 4, 2007
not the first book i pick up when i'm looking to study a little poker cause the book takes EFFORT, but i like it. defintely a different approach to learning poker. the fluff factor is low. you have to be on the ball to squeeze value out of the book. nice job.
