    If you read poker books, this one may not appear exceptional or original at first. Another book teaching how to play tight? C'mon. Well, it's definitely more than that. I have found it to be very good training, and it has helped turned me into a profitable player in low-stakes NLH. This book will sharpen anyone's poker skills, but it will help intermediate to advanced players the most. Beginning players may have trouble experiencing the value of the author's insights.
    Basically, Rob Tucker is an advocate for some tight-passive play in cash games to reduce risk and maintain profit. Your goal is to cash in on big hands, and I have found that yes, indeed you can cash in. I find that often loose, aggressive players at the table may give you the most money when they try to bet you off your hand. If you happen to have flopped the nuts, and an aggressive player comes out swinging, time to double up! I find that the author's suggestions on tight-passive play combined with mild betting will drive some of your opponents crazy.
    My thanks to Rob Tucker.
