So I saw on Amazon that Harrington is releasing two new books (Volumes 1 and 2) on how to play in cash games. This, following his three "book" set on tournament play.

Volume I : 400 pages. Cost: $34.95
Volume II : 374 pages. Cost: $34.95

So it seems Harrington has a brilliant formula for extracting dollars from poker players. Maybe I'll do the same and follow this formula:

- Write a 400 page book about poker. Put LOTS of hand screenshots in it. Add in lots of workbook questions. That should pump it up to about 700 pages.

- Split the book into two books.

- Double the reasonable cost of each individual book.

- Take in $70 from people when they should only be paying about $24.99, and make them think it's a bargain and have people on internet forums defend it by saying "but it's an investment in good play and you'll make it back if you put the practice to good use."

See you March 14, 2008 at Amazon!!!!

The only millionaire will be Harrington. Why play poker against the world's donkey throngs now when you can write books, make videos, endorse poker sites, sell poker gear, get paid for appearing at events, etc ?? ... :D

Excellent! I loved his tournament series and will buy these as well. The "poker millionaire" thing is a bit of a stretch, but if the cash game books are anywhere near as good as Harrington's tournament books, they'll be worth the cover price.

but wait, there's more. If you call now...

You'll learn how to lose weight by taking these pills with 8oz of water 4 times a day. Plus, we'll include this cheap plastic widget which we had made by some children in a foreign country.

BUT HURRY! This offer is only good for the next 10 minutes, even though we run this commercial 100 times a day on 30 channels!!!

legal disclaimer: price of everything above is only $10.99, you only pay a S&H fee of $109.99, and there is a $10.95 monthly user fee which will be billed to your card for THE REST OF YOUR LIFE because there is NO WAY to have it stopped... no matter how many times you call our office which doesn't really exist.

I've bought and read the Harrington tournament books. They have helped me to go far and cash in live tournaments. I have already pre-ordered the cash came books and look forward to reading them and putting them to good use.
I read an interview with Phil Ivey in which he said he spent 12 hours a day for several years to " get good at poker" . If spending 70 bucks helps to lessen that time and helps save some $$$ while learning the ins and outs of cash game play, its money well spent.
I'd rather give it to Harrington than some deadbeat on the other side of the table..

But WAIT, there's MORE. Send us your credit card order NOW and we'll DOUBLE your order, FREE, except for the small S&H fee which will be doubled.

Sure, some books and offers will give you added info to add to your arsenal of strategies. But I often wonder 'WHY'? The Real Estate Foreclosure specialists tell you (at paid seminars) how to make MILLIONS in Real Estate. OK, some of them made millions - a while back. Now they are making millions TALKING about it. If it were that easy, why aren't they still making multi-million dollar Real Estate deals? All of which are 'so easy to do'...HMmmm ... :confused:

I know. They are just mere philanthropists sharing multi-million dollar strategies with MILLIONS of other players in the same arena. ... :eek:
