Hi All,

I know there are requests for book recommendations all the time, but I'd like to know your top 5 suggestions for me to read in 2021 AND why.

I'd also be interested to know which books you wouldn't recommend.

I highly recommend "The biggest bluff"; really interesting story of a journalist turned poker pro in a year.

I would definitly recommend "Modern Poker Theory: Building an unbeatable strategy based on GTO principles" from Michael Acevedo.

This is a book which clearly explains GTO principles and concepts as well as strategies based on these latter (I am currently busy reading it).

Very insightfull.

Otherwise a good beginner guide :

" Crushing low stakes poker: the essential guide to dominating low stakes sit'n gos, volume 1: strategy" from Mike Turner.

Very easy to read. Covers a great amount of basics every Sit'n go player should master and will still provide interesting insights even if you are an intermediate poker player.

I recommend "Think and grow rich". It has nothing to do with poker but it can help you. In an interview with Fedor Holz he said that this book helped him a lot
