How to Win at Omaha High-Low Poker by Mike Cappelletti
|Inside the Poker Mind: Essays on Holdem and General Poker Concepts by John Feeney |
Poker is a game of many skills and to become an expert poker player you need to master them all. This includes concepts such as hand selection, position, proper image projection, and reading hands. However, there are many players who have mastered most of these skills yet they still do poorly in the games — at best they are only small winners. And when they step up in limit and challenge the better players, they almost always fail. You see, knowing the concept is one thing, putting it all together is another. As the text will show, winning poker is a process that requires a lot of thinking as well as a thorough and systematic approach to the game, and that is what this book is about. Topics include “Playing Too Many Hands,” “Self-Weighting Cold Calls,” “Short-Handed Play: Don’t Miss Out,” “The Strategic Moment in Hold ’em,” “Countering a Good Reader,” “A Poker Player in Therapy,” and “Thoughts on the Effects of the Poker Literature.” Those of you who are serious about your game should find much of this material to be extremely valuable. David Sklansky was the strategy consultant for this poker book.
|Internet Poker: How to Play and Beat Online Poker Games by Lou Krieger and Kathleen K. Watterson|
Playing Internet poker in real time against real opponents might just represent poker’s brave new world. Whether for play-money or real money, it’s an environment consisting of virtual tables, player icons representing you and your opponents, and specialized computer algorithms that randomly shuffle the “cards.” It’s a world where you can find a game day or night. Though it may be the wee hours of the morning in California, it’s prime time in Europe, and someone, somewhere, is looking to play a little poker. But it’s poker with a difference. The game is the same, to be sure, but technology does kick in — sometimes in strange and unexpected ways. A reference as well as a tutorial, the book includes a CD with free poker software, and a special bonus chapter with 125 interactive hands to help you prepare to play the Internet games for fun or for profit. Doyle Brunson says “This book is a gem.” Linda Johnson says, “…this book is just what you need to play poker confidently at any Internet poker room“.
