Overview

Ace on the River is no ordinary poker book. This is the first truly "advanced" guide aimed at improving your game. Written in an easy-to-read, bare bones conversational style and designed to help anyone interested in increasing their understanding of the game, this book is ideal for those new to the game or winning professionals. The fundamental philosophies presented go beyond the green felt and can be applied in all competitive ventures.
While most poker books focus on basic rules and strategies, Ace on the River’s advanced perspective addresses elements that effect both game play and the player. Focusing on a variety of subjects such as the psychology of poker, money management, family issues, and sex, this book gives the reader a rare chance to look beyond the cards to see the poker world through someone who lives it. The unique you-make-the-call-play by play section will challenge the reader again and again.
Ace on the River is a review and guide to the world of high-stakes poker as seen by one of the most well-known and well-respected players of all time. From the beginning of 2003 until the middle of 2004, Barry Greenstein won seven poker tournaments and came in second five times, including winning a World Poker Tour event and a World Series of Poker bracelet. Known as the Robin Hood of Poker, Barry has donated nearly three million dollars of his tournament winnings to charity.

    Excellent-Order from Publisher, B&N.com DOESNOT have!!!!

    We waited for months before contacting the publisher and being informed that B&N hasn't restocked in over a year but still takes people's money for the item without ever shipping it! Almost 5 months later, it has been read and enjoyed! It is not your everyday poker strategy book, but has valuable insights and relative concepts that will make you look inside yourself.

    This book fills in the gaps

    This boook is awesome. It is the book that connects all of the math, technical, strategy, and rule books to the biographies and autobiographies of the pro players. I got this book free with bonus dollars. I have just about all the books on poker. But I would gladly pay the price of this book as for a gift for someone. The quality of the paper it is printed on and the photography are beautiful. But the information in this book just absolutely makes so much sense. You will be relieved from all the other poker books that are mainly just odds and strategies and the others that are just stories of players' lives. This book covers aspects of life as a gambler, the ups and downs. Yeah it says a little about sex but just that it a great stress reliever (like we neededed to be told that). If you are looking for a book that will be a break from all the others you have read this is it. It may or not help your technical skills but it will give you a better and more confident attitude which will in turn improve your game. Especially if you have been in a slump or just burned out from playing so much and not being able to seem to ever get ahead. I know I have said a lot, but not many poker books have impressed me like this one.

    good, interesting and different

    Interesting approach, it has everything regarding strategy and it is easy to read. Maybe more on the math behind the game would have been useful. Complete it with a good book on poker odds and you will have the basic tools for a professional play.

    Interesting and Different

    A very different book from one of the world's greatest poker players. Not big on strategic advice but there is some useful insights into a lot of different aspects of poker. A good book for a diversion from the same old strategy books.

    A great supplement

    This is a great book for a person who has a good fundamental base in poker and wants to get better. I expected to get another strategy guide of how to play certain hands in certain situations, but this book turned out to be much better. The author goes into subjects that I wouldn't expect to find in a strategy book, chaos and sex for example. Read it after you read The Theory of Poker.
