    A Must For Intermediate-Level Players

    An excellent addition to most poker players' libraries would be this new release from Lou Krieger and Sheree Bykofsky, an effort that meets the high standards of Krieger's other efforts. 'Secrets' is aimed squarely at the intermediate poker player, and focuses on limit-style ring games, though much of its advice is universal. Broken down into a series of focused topics --- from psychological concepts, to bankroll and image concerns to easy ways to handle the poker math you need --- the book is at is best as a counterpoint to other books, such as those by Sklansky. The difference is in the approach. Sklansky is a poker 'instructor' who gathers the information and deals it out from the top level down, focusing on the concepts themselves, whereas Krieger and Bykofsky stand here as poker 'teachers,' fitting their communications into a form well suited for their target audience. If you struggle conceptually with a Sklansky/Malmuth-type release, then by all means rush to pick up this release. You may find those tricky game concepts magically popping into place.

    good solid information, even for seasoned

    Good information, laid out well. I've been playing for a couple years, and found new information that I can use. Quick, easy ready and is a good book to add your collection.

    Winning Texas Hold'em

    If knowing the correct starting hands to play was all it took to play winning poker, we would all be winning players. This book goes into detail on playing your opponents, in spite of and because of the two cards in your starting hand. The best chapter, in my opinion, is the one titled Minimal Math. It was also the hardest. I had to read it several time. However, at the conclusion I had a good understanding of how the math works, and how I could apply it to each hand I play in effect, having the mechanics to play high percentage poker. A lot of the points in the book were not secrets. They had been mentioned in other poker books I have read. What made this book good study material is that the authors did not merely ¿mention¿ playing tips they gave clear explanations as to why the pros play the way they do. For me, the book is well worth the time involved in reading it. It is not light reading. It is a text book for serious poker study.
