Most of them. But so what? It doesn't make Super System
a good book for a $10NL player online, or even a $2/$5 player live or $200NL online player because the NLHE section of Super System
assumes you'll be playing for high stakes against predominantly weak-tight players.
Plus with Super System
you're shelling out a lot of money for a lot of content that you're probably never going to use. Seriously, how many five-card draw action goes on these days? If you've got the first book Sklansky's whole section on stud high-low is useless because nobody plays the game without a low qualifier anymore.
I've got nothing but respect for Doyle. Seriously. But Super System
has little if anything to do with any game you, I or anyone else here is likely to play any time soon.
