Chip Tricks: Look Like a Poker Pro

chip_tricks.jpgYou don't have to play great poker to LOOK like you play great poker. If you'd rather have style than substance in your game, or maybe if you just want to distract the hell out of your opponents at the table, it may be time to learn some chip tricks.

CHIP TRICKS: Look Like a Poker Pro provides readers with detailed instructions and photographs illustrating each and every step for approximately 31 chip tricks. The book is written in a witty, easy-to-read style and is jam-packed with over 200 photographs (see samples below). The book also covers related topics, such as where to practice the trick and how to ensure that one's newly-learned chip tricks don't become "tells" at the poker table.

Chip Tricks: Look Like A Poker Pro

poker_chip_tricks.jpgWhether you're trying to impress people at the table or just looking for ways to kill time and do something with your hands, poker chip tricks are a great skill to pick up.

Chip tricks, such as the well-known chip shuffle, have been around for almost as long as chip games. However, over the past couple of years, a new level of interest in chip tricks has arisen because of the popularity of poker and because viewers see poker pros doing these tricks at poker events on television. Part of this interest comes from the focus on players' hands during these televised poker games. Part of it is because the players look so cool performing these tricks.

Poker for Kindle

poker_kindle.jpgGet your poker learnin' on the go with Phil Gordon and Jonathan Grotenstein's aptly-named "Poker" for your Kindle. I don't have a kindle, but I do have it installed on my phone...hello, long bus rides!

(Poker is) a game of skill, and playing well depends on more than just a good hand or the ability to hide emotion. The first step toward developing a style of play worthy of the greats is learning to think like a poker player. In a game where there are no absolutes, mastering the basics is only the beginning -- being able to pull off the strategy and theatrics is the difference between legendary wins and epic failure.

card_player_magazine.jpgI've been pondering what to get my poker-playing friends for Christmas this year, so I sat back and asked myself - what would I want? I would want a resource that kept me excited about poker, helped me out with strategy, and generally just kept me up on what's going on in the world of poker. The answer? Card Player magazine.

Can't really go wrong with that - it's the gift that keeps on giving, a subscription's dirt cheap, and that subscription card will fit nicely in a stocking.

Poker Madness by Kevin Kozar - Win at Texas Hold 'Em

display_thumbnail.jpg

In our tireless pursuit to figure out how to go pro, or at least later in life make some good dough playing limit hold 'em - this book has it all.

If you are a losing limit Texas hold ‘em player and are tired of losing or if you make money playing limit Texas hold ‘em, but you want to make more money or if you want to play limit Texas hold ‘em for a living, this is the book for you! I was already a winning limit Texas hold ‘em player when I decided to turn professional, but I was not prepared mentally nor was I good enough to make the kind of money I needed to play poker for a living. I learned in a hurry though. Most of what I needed to know to be really successful I learned at the “school of hard knocks”. The lessons at this school are expensive ones. Fortunately, you are not going to have pay for these “hard knock” lessons like I had to, instead for the price of one small pot that you would have won if you had read this book first, you will learn what you need to know in order to become a successful professional limit Texas hold ‘em player.
