re: Poker & The evolution of poker strategies
I think any good information is worth reading. If you don't read it then how do you know what others are trying or doing. Yes the information might be old, or commonly known, but again necessary. I think by not reading some poker literature you are missing out on something. Not that it will give you a "Eureka" feeling, but might give you information to process and develop into your own game.
For example, in basketball a lay-up is very basic and most any athletic child can do it. BUT, if you are playing on a team and can not do a lay-up, then you are missing out on alot more than that in your game. Translate this to poker and you get what I mean, or at least I hope so. My 2 cents.
