Well this is interesting. This book cost more than double his first one, and a whopping 534 pages, should be seriously comprehensive!! Publish date is 6/12. After the release, I hope he let's us see the table of contents, intro, and random pages. Some authors do it, some don't. I also hope about 1/3 of the book is dedicated to O8 (both limit & PL), as is his first book. So, if I don't see a table of contents, I'm gonna wait for reviews. I've said it here before, his first book is 322 pgs (a lot of it being quizzes), is really beginning - intermediate, especially when I got a taste of more advanced concepts.
What I'd really be interested to know is where he plays, how often, his ROI, that kinda thing. Also wondered why he never attends the WSOP
. I think he must do strictly cash games, as his book never addresses tournament play. I have disagreed on a few of his plays. He often does not follow up on what happens when a hand doesn't play out as he anticipates.
To the OP, some reviews to get you started....
Amazon.com: Low Limit Omaha High-Low Strategies: Bill Boston: Books (http://www.amazon.com/Low-Limit-Omaha-High-Low-Strategies/dp/1580422551/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1244474187&sr=1-1)
I always pay closer attention to ones that give it a low rating. In this case, that guy may have missed the gist of all those charts. It's not for memorization. You must understand how a hand's odds
change in relation to connector, suitedness, etc. He had some good point too, as did others. Might look into the book, as this is also my game at low-stakes. Let us know what you think after further review.
