We like our Phil's ready to play and ready to be beat. This book will be a dangerous weapon in the poker world. A detailed strategy for future tournament-poker champions and for those of us who love to see Phil lose and lose big.
From Amazon Review:
The subtle beauty is that this approach can allow inexperienced or moderately experienced players to negate some of the skill edge veteran and expert players hold. This book is a detailed and expanded version of "The System" described in David Sklansky's "Tournament Poker for Advanced Players", which Sklansky designed to allow a complete novice to be competetive in a big buy in tournament.
Before "Kill Phil" was published many of the young, aggressive players were already using this type of approach with good success against the veteran tournament pros. It is an interesting strategy which if you don't know and understand will leave you behind against the rest of the players who do know it. I will go out on the proverbial limb here and predict that this book will become an instant classic and "must own" book in any players no limit tournament library. It is that good.

From Amazon Reviewer: Poker Academy V2 is a must buy! I have been playing poker all my life, but only recently have I focused on Texas Hold Em. Each time I play, I increase my skills, but I don't play often enough against quality opponents. When I came across Poker Academy V2, I was skeptical about how much it would help me learn the game. Well, let me tell you, I am significantly better than I was before. Not only are the computer opponents better than any other poker game out there, but the program allows you to see every statistic possible about your cards, the pot odds, and how you bet overall. For example, I learned that I was very passive pre-flop but very aggressive post-flop.
I also learned what happens when I call to see a flop with the various different card combos and how many outcomes are possible. The programmers, who have set up an extremely complex algorithm to run the game, give you access to all the components that make up that code so you can get a better idea of all the odds and percentages of everything that happens in a round of poker. When you watch on TV and you see people call "time," they are calculating in their head the pot odds, which includes how much they have invested in the pot compared to the total number of cards that will help them win or lose. Poker Academy V2 does this as well, so you can begin to pick up patterns with certain hands, which translates into better and smarter betting on a real table.

Even we try to shake it up around here a bit - how about some Vegas Vampires for your poker table?
From the USA Today bestselling author, a vampire-meets-girl story set in the city that never sleeps-except during daylight. He's a bloodsucking freak of nature. But, unlike other politicians, Ethan Carrick is actually a nice guy. Not to mention a very hot, wealthy, casino-owning vampire. It's an election year for vampires, which means he'll first have to escape his opponent's hit men. Then he'll have to find a suitable First Lady, preferably here in Vegas. Brittany Baldizzi fits the bill. She's smart, pretty- and sweeter than a glass of diabetic O-Negative. But her protective sister Alexis steps in with a message for Ethan: Bite me. It's then that he realizes it's the sexy, no-nonsense Alexis who raises his stake. And as much as she denies it, Alexis wouldn't mind a romp in the coffin with him. But can a mere mortal, even one who risks her life for him, make a centuries-old, womanizing vampire feel something entirely new?

We love the inlay and think the price at $149.95 for something a bit different is not bad either.
Along Highway 95 about half-way between Las Vegas and Reno, Nevada is a town called "Goldfield". The last great gold rush of the 20th century took place in Goldfield between 1905 and 1910. People came to Goldfield with high hopes and the will to win land, silver, gold or money. Goldfield was the largest city in Nevada at that time with a population of over 30,000. It boasted of several gambling saloons including the aforementioned Northern, with a bar so long it took 80 tenders to serve its customers. It was also the home of many brothels and the now "haunted" Goldfield Hotel. These "Goldfield Casino" poker chips capture the flavor of the Old West but with a more modern look. The Full Color Inlaid Graphics and 11 different denominations will accommodate any poker game at any stakes. Welcome your friends to the Goldfield Casino!
