Off to preorder.
Off to preorder.
Well if you simply buy them outright, then yeah you'll pay a lot more for them. But Amazon gives 5% off for pre-order. If the Amazon offered price comes down (like it does 99% of the time) then you get the discounted price AND the 5% pre-order discount. And you get free shipping from them. So instead of easily spending $75 or more with shipping charges, you can get them (like I am) for no more than $66.40. And if they cut the price even just 10% off the top, it'll just cost me $59.76. And for Harrington books, that money is well spent.Well I definately am, but does anyone think the prices are a bit high? I guess I'm just spoiled because our library carries a lot of poker books, but $70+ for 2 books seems a bit much.
put it this way zach. if the books improve your winrate by 1bb/100 and you play $50 NL then it would take roughly 15k hands for them to pay for themselves and then you would be arning extra bb in profit every 100 hands you play. So over the long run if they improve your game they will theoretically pay for themselves so its like they are free! well sort of.
OK I'm convinced. Since it looks like I'll be hitting $1k ahead of schedule, I'll just wait until I'm at $1,070 and withdraw the $70 for the HoH cash game books.
Super System was once considered the Bible of Poker. I dare to redefine it as the Old Testament of Poker.
Harrington of Hold'em is the New Testament of Hold'em Tournament Poker, and now Hold'em Cash Game Poker as well.
They are FR books and mine are still on backorder from amazon (why didn't I just pay the extra buck or 2 from 2+2?).
They're actually cheaper at 2+2, 60 (59.something) compared to 70. Not sure of the shipping prices though, and standard shipping from 2+2 says like 6 to 60 days or something ridiculous like that.
With the pre-order discount and free shipping at amazon they were $66.40. I think the 2+2 store with shipping is like $68.95 or something. BTW, at Buy.com they are $23.69 each and they ship free if you order $50 and up. They too show no stock and give no estimate, but when you're ready to order Zach that might be the place to look 1st.
Comments: NOT YET IN STOCK in the UK but NEW COPIES will be available from late March so Pre-order from our London shop now to reserve
