    Great Advice with a few caveats

    This book is still the Bible for poker. With updates on new games, Super System 2 is your one stop shopping guide for all of poker. Since most players play no limit hold 'em, I will make a few observations. Doyle's chapter remains the definitive work on the subject. However, his advice is no longer the secret code it used to be and readers should be advised that they must constantly adjust to their opponents. Still, this chapter offers invaluable advise to understanding the power of no limit. Finally, tournaments are a completely different animal and are not covered in this book.

    'Nothing Super to this System'

    What a disappointment. You'll learn more from watching Celebrity Poker Showdown than you will from Doyle Brunson segment on Texas No Limit Hold'em. His concept might have worked 20 years ago, not in today's day and age of poker players. He tell's you he always plays double aces, hard and fast. Then then states later on to always slow play double aces???? If you want a real book on how to play Texas No limit Hold'em get 'Harrington on Hold'em'.

    Helped Me Online!

    this is a great book, and since i cant get home games started all the time, it really helped me improve my online game. I play at partypoker.com, and used the bonus code MONEYPARTY to sign up and got a 75$ bonus automatically. BRUNSON RULES!

    Doyle's record speaks for itself

    Written by one of the true goliath¿s in poker history, I eagerly bought this book, excited by the fact that Doyle had enlisted the aid of a dozen other top poker authorities to each tackle a separate chapter, each discussing different poker games. The book, in my opinion, could have used a good editor, as it reads in an extraordinarily disjointed manner ¿ I suppose that¿s inevitable when every chapter is written by a different author, but developing a consistent voice is one of the tasks of a good proof-reader or editor. That being said, I found the different writing styles somewhat refreshing, especially since the book covers so many different games, resulting in the stylistic differences not being nearly as noticeable as they otherwise would have been. I particularly liked the sections on limit hold¿em and omaha, which are typically my two games of choice. I was somewhat disappointed with the NL hold¿em section ¿ I know that¿s Doyle¿s bread and butter, but I was at least hoping that he would have updated some of his material since Super System I ¿ alas, I found many of the chapters had been lifted verbatim from that text, which incidentally isn¿t regarded all that highly by many of today¿s poker authors. Surely he has learned some new tips and tricks in the last 20 years that he could pass on to the reader, hasn¿t he?? One thing I could have done without are the endless (and shameless) plugs Doyle makes for his own online website. I know we¿ve all probably done some self-serving promotions in our time, but I thought Doyle¿s talk as though his website was the king of all online poker sites was sorely, sorely misguided ¿ anyone who plays online will tell you that Doyle¿s site is no more than a bit player that nips at the heels of the larger sites such as Party, Empire, Stars, Ultimate Bet, and the like. Presenting it as the be all and end all of online poker I thought was quite misleading, although readers are naturally advised to draw their own conclusions. Regardless of what site you choose as your online home, you can find sign-up bonus codes floating around the internet that will make your sign-up far more worthwhile. Some reviewer here pointed out that pokercroaker.com kept theirs updated fairly frequently. Regardless, I have no reservations in recommending this book to anyone looking to improve their game, if for no other reason than Doyle is one of the living legends, and it gives fascinating insight into his poker game. That being said, I much preferred the chapters written by other authors, especially Harman and Negraneau.

    Updated revision better than the original

    I read the original Super System last year, or at least the parts about Texas Hold 'Em. This version updates some of the material from the original, and has several new chapters that will be more appealing to today's players. The section on limit Hold 'Em poker is much improved, and the tips from Mike Caro are worth the money alone. But the real meat of this book is Doyle Brunson's No Limit Hold 'Em section, which has been revised and updated to be more relevant to the aggressive style of today's players. Brunson's advice is very advanced, and this section is not for beginners (if you ignore my warning, prepare to get busted a lot before you pick up on the subtleties of the game). Many of the poor production values of the original have been fixed, for example the poor typesetting and editing, making for a much easier read. This is a must have for any serious player.

    Very good

    Very very good book. Not only does it focus on today's hottest game, No Limit Texas Hold'em, but on many other games, in very good detail, to make you an excellent well-rounded player. This is definitly a MUST HAVE book, this and the original Super System. Also a good section on internet poker, and after reading the section Mike Caro wrote, I feel as if i can't be beat.

    Still the Best

    This much anticipated update lives up to its billing. Some great new sections covering some new areas by top notch pros. The no limit section while not radically different from the original Super System is updated and is still the best writing on the subject. Super System 2 is a great overall book that covers a ton of subjects. My only complaint would be that it does not have a real detailed look at tournament play.
