    bad, bad, bad

    The book is nothing more than an introduction to poker and seems to be written by someone still on that level. Even as beginner's guide, this book pales in comparison to several others.

    Misleading title

    The word 'Beat' should not be used, as this is a very basic book designed for those who know nothing about internet poker, poker in general, and who just discovered 21st century technology. Two examples of their advice is: Lurk before you sit down in an online game and use preaction checkboxes so you can go get a sandwich...

    Poker - Going Online Made Easy

    Internet Poker tells you Everything You Always Wanted To Know About (online) Poker And Were Afraid To Ask - and then some. The authors, Lou Krieger and Kathleen Keller Watterson have put together a step-by-step Poker Bible that guides the novice who can barely tell a Flush from a Straight as well as the poker professional who thinks he already has all the answers (and then finds he doesn't) into the poker cyber world. When all the basics have been covered, Internet Poker goes into the specifics of online poker. First-timers may be timid about taking the step from the brick and mortar casino to the cyber version. We don't know what to expect, how to get started, how to find the right sites, the right games, understand the jargon, observe the online ethics, how to handle the money aspect and much, much more that is online-specific. Internet Poker addresses every question, every concern an online poker novice might have that might stop him from even trying in the first place. This book, extremely well researched, written in a highly accessible way - the authors don't talk at you, they talk to you! - should dispel any notions of doubt or bashfulness. After reading through the chapters we come away with the notion that the cyber world isn't going to eat us alive, isn't going to crash and burn when we make mistakes. It can be a very entertaining and, if you play your cards right (sorry, couldn't resist that) lucrative and convenient way to play poker. It's a new world for many of us, but this book guides us through potential pratfalls and removes the fear factor that accompanies the unknown. Online poker is on the rise. It is not a fad. It's here to stay. So, we might as well get on with it and become part of the phenomenon. After all, who won the $ 2.5 million at the 2003 World Series of Poker in Las Vegas? Chris Moneymaker was an Internet player! The accompanying CD - all part of the same price-tag - is a must-have for anybody serious about online poker. While the sample hands in the book are very helpful, the CD with the Wilson Software demos is priceless. You can download it in the privacy of your own home and follow the instructions. It gives you a first look at the real thing. Let Krieger and Watterson take you by the virtual hand and help you take the jump to online poker. They make it easy!
