Jeff | 959 comments Please add update the following details for this edition, ISBN 1880685434 (ISBN13: 9781880685433):

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

Publication Date: March 14, 2008
Num pages: Amazon says 374 but I have the book in hand and there are 380. Page 374 is part way through the index.

Also, there are two other editions with which this one should be combined. The title on the Kindle edition matches the title on Amazon, but neither of those matches what appears on the cover.

I'm not sure what the Goodreads guidelines say about following Amazon's title or the cover, but based on the actual cover, I think the correct title would be Harrington on Cash Games: How to Win at No-Limit Hold 'em Money Games, Volume II.

I'm not even sure what the other (third) edition is supposed to be. It has no picture and almost no details.

Thank you.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Done: corrected titles and combined the three editions and merged the "stray" edition (the one with no details). Once the merge clears the cache, there will be two editions listed: paperback and Kindle.


Jeff | 959 comments Thanks! I hate to be nitpicky - I know there was a lot to do there - but the publication date still says March 1, 2008 (Amazon says March 14).

There are similar issues with Volume I of that book as well. I'm not sure if I should post this in another thread but the issues are nearly the same...

https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...

ISBN: 1880685426 (ISBN13: 9781880685426)

Again, with the title, the cover says Harrington on Cash Games: How to Win at No-Limit Hold 'em Money Games, Volume I.

Publication date should also be March 14, 2008.
Page count should be 422 (end of the index).

There is also a "stray" edition of Volume I that I assume should be combined, "Harrington on Cash Games Bd. 1". Based on the description it appears to be the same book, but it's also thin on the details.

Thank you.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Thanks, Jeff; fixed the March 8 date. (Mea culpa!)

I fixed the Volume 1 paperback. The other edition is a hardcover, Portuguese version. I found the cover on Amazon and changed the title to match the cover: Cash Games: Poker No-limit Hold 'em, Volume 1

I'm also working on the other titles in this line; it'll take a bit to check each cover of each edition. I'll post again under this thread to summarize so you can review.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Jeff, I've cleaned up the Dan Harrington (poker player) book list, moving books to other profiles when they were obviously not his work:
https://www.goodreads.com/author/list...

Using WorldCat and Amazon (including the Germany and France sites), I was able to locate missing covers and verify titles. I also merged (or requested merging) duplicate and/or stray (empty) editions. I think it looks better now. It will definitely be easier to find specific editions.


Jeff | 959 comments Wow, excellent! Thanks... details all look good for the ones I have (verified the page counts against my copies), and everything else looks good as well.

One thing I noticed - would it make sense to punctuate the titles for the first two Expert Strategy for No-Limit Tournaments books the same as the Money Game books? Meaning replace the period with a comma? The Volume III in that series is like that already.

Dobby (dobby0390) | 3620 comments Yup. Fixed it.

The list is so pretty now that I could weep. ;-)


Jeff | 959 comments It truly is. Thank you!!
