Several Reviews Of Today’s More Popular Poker Books

Finding a good poker acim these days is not quite as easy as it
seems. There are more and more poker books popping up everyday. Especially books
on no limit holdem. I am going to be reviewing several books on poker. Here are
the covers I will briefly discuss: Harrington on Holdem Vol I, II and III, Mike
Caro’s book of poker tells, and Sklansky ‘s Holdem Poker For Advanced Players.

I am reviewing these books on poker theory and tells because
they have been most helpful to me in becoming a profitable poker player.
Educating yourself on no limit holdem is not to difficult to do with all the
books out there. Just visit Amazon and type in no limit holdem and you will get
lots of selections. I recommend Amazon for this because they have a big
selection, you can buy the books used for a fair price and their are reviews of
the books right below the book. These reviews are written by people that have
purchased and read the book. I have found some of them helpful and found them to
be truthful because not all of them are good. So if you are looking for a book
on holdem I think Amazon is a good source.

Review of Dan Harrington ‘s Volume I-III: Dan Harrington
has been a successful No Limit Tournament player for a long time now. He has 3
books out that are actually best used as a set. Volume I talks about the
beginning stages of a poker tournament and hand selection. Its a great book for
beginners that want to learn the basic idea behind playing in tournaments.
Harrington goes over lots of different things in this book that every beginner
should know. The big one is hand selection and odds. He talks about how to play
tight aggressive which is his playing style. The next Book Volume II assumes
that you have read Volume I so it goes right in and builds on the principals
from the first book. Volume II talks about the end game, meaning towards the
middle or close to the money stage of the tournament where blinds are high and
people tend to get real tight. If you combine the knowledge of these two books
and have a little talent for the game of poker you will soon be successful in
playing no limit poker tournaments. I know after I read these two books I made
significant changes to my game and went from being a hit and miss tournament
player to consistently making the final table or at least close too. No matter
what you do you can not always win in my opinion however if you follow the Poker
strategies Harrington lays out in these two books you can get pretty close
consistently. Volume III is actually a test of your knowledge. What you will
find in all of Harrington’s books which I really like is that he will explain a
theory and then give several scenarios where it can apply. This way not only do
you get an explanation of the tactic but also a couple of examples of where the
tactic fits in to your game. Well Vol. III is basically the test it is full of
scenarios for you to navigate through and after wards the book scores you. Now
depending on your score you can go back and review certain parts of the other
two books to improve that aspect of your game. This is almost like having a pro
go over your game and then show you the flaws you need to improve upon.
