re: Poker & Right book for beating amateurs at home game?
Very good. THANKS! I am officially going with the Ed Miller's book on low stakes Hold em and Phil Gordons Little Green Book.
The whole "Home Game" thing is actually very interesting now. With the amount of knowledge that can be gained from TV coverage as opposed to 10 years ago and the number of free poker sites
online, it is like they all have a "little" bit of knowledge.
It really seems like there would be a "predictable" style of play associated with a person who's knowledge of poker is strictly from watching WSOP
, WPT, or HSP on TV. Then throw in the factors of:
-Loose play from low stakes and lack of patience
-lack of concentration from the distractions of playing with friends or the TV on or whatever
-the addition of the alcohol
-the one or two players with NO expierience
-the ultra loose player who is not worried about losing their $40 buy in
Seems like there would be a real predictability to this game (and for the author of this book, a huge market, lol)
