re: Poker & Poker books..
I just finished reading the Full Tilt Poker
Stategy Guide Tournament Edition/
Games discussed are:
no limit hold-em
pot limit hold-em
pot limit omaha
omaha eight or better
7 card stud
stud eight or better
authors are some of the most notable pros in the game today
I really enjoyed the overall flow of this book & the concepts discussed involving stating hands, position, statistical charts rating against random hands, short stack play, big stack play etc. I own about 10 poker books
including some of the one's mentioned. There are positive aspects you can learn from all of the books mentioned. I am of the opinion this one of the better one's available for concepts & insights of tournament poker as it has helped my game immensely in a very short amount of time.
The Harrington series are next on my list of books to own. I have seen & heard a lot of positive things about them on this forum & would assume they would make a great addition to any poker book collection.
