Why don't you ask some of them... ie. Jon Turner, Jon Van Fleet (aka Apestyles), Tony Dunst, etc. etc. ?? (do you think they're 'hiding special secrets' or something?... or just giving the consumer some 2nd rate info. via their books?)
Yes, watch a video about a WSOP
winner, he said he is not going to play poker long time, therefore he reveals some secret. but he honestly admit there are still something hide behind.
Generally, poker is a Zero-Sum game there is no winning player. There is only weaker player. therefore, if there is an edge against them , why trained these weaker player to be good, esp write a book?
was told a story, nanonoko@poker stars, once offered about 500K USD for his cash table strategy, he refused.
the other thing , top player like Phil Ivey, Stu ungar ever write a book tell you have to be a shark? Doly wrote Super system, and he said later He lost millions of potential dollars later - it is negative EV. revealing winning strategy in a book. OBV
It is like coca cola's secret recipe... unless it is out dated. keep it secret.
