No Limit Hold 'em: Theory and Practice

David Slansky knows his stuff and this book is another masterful read on No-Limit Hold 'em. We like the depth of each of the sections along with the example. Great book.

No limit holdem had all but disappeared(except for tournament play) until about three or four years ago and any one playing today understands the explosion in poker is primarily centered around no limit holdem. Many veteran players like myself have tried to adopt and adapt a solid limit approach to no limit and achieved mixed results. Often the mixed results have left us wondering if were are getting better or just experiencing a good run. This book will help you think about and understand the game better than most of the previously published no limit material.

Inside The Poker Mind

Poker is a game of many skills and to become an expert poker player you need to master them all. This includes concepts such as hand selection, position, proper image projection, and reading hands. However, there are many players who have mastered most of these skills yet they still do poorly in the games — at best they are only small winners. And when they step up in limit and challenge the better players, they almost always fail. You see, knowing the concept is one thing, putting it all together is another.

Secrets the Pros Won't Tell You About Winning Hold'em Poker

We've recently made the trip to Foxwoods again but didn't get much table time due to being sucked into Crazy 4 Poker and winning big. So - by the time it was 5:30 in the morning we didn't venture out into the new WPT poker room. Next time we go, we'll have read this new book though. Looks like a perfect book on tells and after 5-6 hours of playing we always feel a little "tell all".

Have you seen all of the poker books at any large bookstore? Five years ago there were three. Now there are nearly 80. Can any new book really add anything to the voluminous poker literature that fills the shelves? The answer is an enthusiastic YES! Secrets The Pros Won't Tell You About Winning Holdem Poker is a welcome addition to the short list of truly excellent poker books available. Novices, intermediate, and advanced players will surely profit from the many nuggets of insight presented by Krieger and Bykofsky.

Harrington on Hold 'em Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments

We're pretty sure we need to brush up on an overall strategy for playing No Limit tournaments. So far many books just haven't gone in that direction until now - Harrington is a top player and knows his stuff and I've also seen him on many final tables so perhaps this is the book for me.

No limit hold'em, obviously, is a complex game. So complex that there has never been a good comprehensive treatment in a book form; I had thought that this was because it involves more "table feel", experience and intuition that can't be easily taught or expressed in a useful format. Harrington and Robertie have done just that. Harrington is the 1995 world champion, and the only player to make the final table in both 2003 and 2004, overcoming the two biggest fields in World Series history (839 and 2,576 players, respectively). Robertie is a top backgammon player and author of several excellent books on that game.

Texas Hold'em Odds

We've found another interesting poker book on calculating odds. Looks pretty good and from the reviews - pretty straightforward.

Odds are part of any gambling strategy and Texas Hold’em Poker is highly predisposed to probability-based decisions. The book presents the mathematics involved in card distributions in Texas Hold’em and provides a precise account of the odds associated with all gaming events. The author is a recognized authority on casino mathematics. He is member of applied mathematics societies and has published numerous articles in leading academic and gaming industry as well as applied mathematics journals. He is also author of "Probability Guide of Gambling" book. No formal background in mathematics is necessary for reading this book, although comfort with some probability and set theory notions is helpful. In most cases, you'll need some college math to follow the formulas here, but this is not a requirement, because the numerical results are collected in tables at the end of each section.

Weighing the Odds in Hold'em Poker

If the reviews of this book are any indication - this is one to pick up. I'm always having issues with estimating my odds.

I just received this book and have been unable to put it down. This book by Yao (a former derivatives trader) is masterful. It includes the best quantitative discussion that I have seen on calculating pot odds and on starting-hand match ups, with an excellent discussion of which hands play well against few hands and which play better against multiple-hands (thereby distinguishing between good calling hands and good raising hands). It includes a thematic discussion of different plays (the check raise, bluffing, semi-bluffing, etc.) as well as a discussion of common situations on the flop and beyond, all with excellent examples. This is not a book for a rank beginner, but should be accessible to anyone who has read the any of the currently-popular limit books (Jones/Miller). Unlike some of the books by 2+2, this book is organized and readable. It is kind of refreshing to read a poker book that has great substance and is also well written (with no apologies needed for the writing)!
