Este es un libro imprescindible para cualquier persona que quiera saber verdaderamente como es el mundo del poker. Más allá de estrategias, probabilidades, estadísticas, odds, bad beats, entre otras muchas cosas que tiene que dominar un jugador de poker, está la psicología de los jugadores, este libro trata este tema de una manera espectacular. Lo recomiendo.

Excellent book focusing on the precursors of success rather than the technical aspects of poker play. A lot of the ideas cross over into other areas of life and give good guidance for those who wish to excel in any area.

A good book but very repetitive. Read the first chapter and you can move on.

Play for long-term, focus on making the right decision.

3.5 stars. Nothing wrong with the information given, but this was maybe a bit repetitive and dull read.
