    This is a waste there are beter books

    If you have played any online poker this book will not eally tell you anything you dont know. I would much rather see somene read the standards (super system, slanskey hold em, etc) A book I do like is the Daniel Negranue 50 book much easier read and beter info.

    Online Poker Player for 2 years

    Killer Poker Online gives you an advantage over players at your table that not have read the book. Combining this book with simple poker knowledge will have you raking in pots constantly. This book does not only tell the up sides to winning but also tells you about the down sides to losing and the possible cheaters on the net. The book first of all prepares you for poker online. Great book every online poker player should have it in their library.

    Listen to his advices before getting involved in online poker

    Very informative and insightful on play online. Useful strategies and avoidance of the pitfalls of the online game. Does not contain any strategies on how to play the games. Also helps you prepare to begin a session online to get your mindset ready. The whole book is useful to build up your bankroll in the online arena.
