Great Book for Intermediate Players Looking to Advance
Phil Gordon's blue and green books present the basics of solid no limit play. In his gold book he moves a big step beyond what is necessary for beating low stakes no limit games. He introduces elements of game theory, range analysis, and strategies for moving from purely exploitative approaches to unexploitable approaches to the game. This is a great read for anyone who has already developed a solid, winning no limit game and would like to be able to start beating competent, observant, aggressive opponents.Was this review helpful?

Great to update your game!
I've been playing for about 7 years, and read the Little Green and Blue Books in years past. I found the Green Book was a great place to start, but the game has changed, and I found the Gold Book to be very helpful. I bought this book (over others) because of the Omaha section; not too sure how helpful I personally found the Omaha section, but I think it would be good as an introduction to the game. Currently on my second reading, a lot to absorb.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

Very good for holdem...
I am a semi-professional poker player (and have been for about 7 years) and I think my holdem game got better from reading this book. The material on PLO was not too helpful to me, but if you are a PLO beginner, then you might like it. (If you already know the basics of PLO and want to get further, then Hwang's books are probably a good investment.)Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
