    serious no limit hold 'em' reference

    great book filled with extreme theory and practical play suggestions. to be used as an ongoing 'reference' resource; in practice, poker boils down to the making of intelligent decisions at the right moment hopefully coupled with luck of the cards yet to come!

    Erratic Effort from Noted Theoretician

    Finally, David Sklansky turns his attention to the uber-popular No Limit Hold Em game (as seen on TV). Sklansky is best noted for his seminal poker books The Theory of Poker and Hold Em Poker for Advanced Players, still highly regarded by most serious poker players. Expectations were high for a No-Limit Hold Em book by Sklansky, but unfortunately those expectations were not met. The book is fragmented and not well-organized, par for the course for Sklansky, who is often distracted by various minutiae. Most of the information imparted has been better covered elsewhere in poker literature. Sklansky's writing style is enigmatic at times, which leads to plenty of frustration and waning interest in the contents as the book lurches along its erratic course. I found the bet-sizing chapters to be somewhat helpful along with the Sklansky-Chubukov numbers (mathematical figures which can help to determine the value of an all-in bet), but nothing in the book was worth the steep price of admission. OK for intermediate players but there are more worthwhile efforts available.

    Great Addition to No Limit Play

    One of the most in depth books ever written on no limit Hold 'em. The book delivers on what it promises in the title. That is, you understand theory and practicality to get a firm grasp on no limit Hold 'em. My only complaint would be that the book does not dig deeply into the differences between cash game and tournament play.

    Good for introductory play

    This book is geared towards those that are really reaching for a solid no-limit game. It is for beginners and amateurs, with most discussion focusing on important no-limit concepts that help to build a well-rounded game. If you are starting out or struggling it is a perfect read, if you are seasoned and have personal insight and experience with the game I would tend to avoid it, as you will likely agree with some material, see exploitable holes in other sections, and wind up with an overall question mark about how this book can help one who has already devoted significant time and thought to the game. Stick to Brunson's material.
