BEST HOW-TO PLAY HOLD'EM EVER! I've read a few books about "winning" poker from players who've won and I found this to be the best, most comprehensive book for the beginner. It really holds your hand and walks you through the basics, so that by the end you should be a regular winner at your local "home game" table.

Sklansky and Malmuth's books are good too, especially with all the visuals and hands that they take you through step-by-step, but they don't quite explain the fundamentals in layman's

Winning at the crazy loose tables you find at the lowest limits of hold'em involves playing a different game than winning at higher levels or no limit, and this book walks the reader through the strategies that are most effective for low limits. In the end, the best tactic to combat this level of competition is very straight forward tight-aggressive poker. Patience and discipline are the keys to long term success. In this sense, the book does not reveal anything Earth shattering. There are a few ...more

It's limit hold 'em, a very different game than no limit, which is the only reason that I didn't rate it higher. I needed to get that in upfront.

That being said, it's a great primer for anyone who wants to learn that game, and if you have good handle on the no limit game, reading this book will help your play there.

Like most good books for beginners, he reminds the reader that it's better to play fewer hands and win big, than play many hands with smaller pots. Hand reading is a tough art, and f

I happen to think there are more tactics and math in Limit Hold'em than there is in No Limit Hold 'em. I, like everyone else who watches poker on television, started playing the No Limit game but I have moved to low stakes limit poker because I believe there's more opportunity to win money over the long run. This is the perfect instruction manual for that game. It steps through every part of the hand - Preflop, flop, turn, river, and shows how to tighten up your game, plug leaks and show a stead ...more
This is the best book for low-limit hold 'em. Most of this book resembles a typical introductory book. It covers pre-flop play, post-flop play, pot-odds and all the other basic concepts of poker. But it's philosophy about low-limit games in particular is where it excels. It emphasizes that bluffing won't work. Winning low-limit hold em is not about playing fancy, it is about playing good solid fundamental poker.

Only read this one if you're playing the 2/4 or 4/8 Hold'em tables at Flamingo on the Vegas strip. Obviously a book on Low-Limit isn't going to win the big bucks, but you'd be surprised what a little persistence, -- 8 hours of it -- can turn least a free buffet.

A good book for those who are interested in playing low limit hold em games. While the book won't make you a huge winner the strategies involved will keep you losses to a minimum and should, over time, allow you to post a small profit.

a classic of poker strategy lit, and deservedly so--probably still applicable in today's games. Reviewed for Card Player.
