Overview

For today's poker players, Texas hold 'em is the game. Every day, tens of thousands of small stakes hold 'em games are played all over the world in homes, card rooms, and on the Internet. These games can be very profitable -- if you play well. But most people don't play well and end up leaving their money on the table.

Small Stakes Hold 'em: Winning Big with Expert Play explains everything you need to be a big winner. Unlike many other books about small stakes games, it teaches the aggressive and attacking style used by all professional players. However, it does not simply tell you to play aggressively; it shows you exactly how to make expert decisions through numerous clear and detailed examples.
Small Stakes Hold 'em teaches you to think like a professional player. Topics include implied odds, pot equity, speculative hands, position, the importance of being suited, hand categories, counting outs, evaluating the flop, large pots versus small pots, protecting your hand, betting for value on the river, and playing overcards. In addition, after you learn the winning concepts, test your skills with over fifty hand quizzes that present you with common and critical hold 'em decisions. Choose your action, then compare it to the authors' play and reasoning.

This text presents cutting-edge ideas in straightforward language. It is the most thorough and accurate discussion of small stakes hold 'em available. Your opponents will read this book; make sure you do, too!

    Very Useful Book

    This Book is Excelent,everything that is written in it will most definitely sharpen up your game.One Thing that I gotta admit Is the misleading information that the authors are providing when saying the games online are super loose and that there is like 6-7 people on the flop on average.That Is not the case and the information in this book is based on the fact that majority of your opponents are loose players.They repeat this throughout the whole book.So after you read this book you might have to adjust your play just a bit because 80% of people playing on line are NOT loose,Flops on line are mainly 3-handed or heads up .Other then that this really is an amazing book that covers Many fields needed to know to play well.

    Simply the best limit hold'em book for beginners

    Read and understand the concepts in this book and you'll be able to beat up to at least $15/$30 in any casino I've ever been to. Many of the concepts here will also give you a good foundation for branching out your play into other games. However if you want prefer playing no-limit that's not a good enough reason to buy this book.

    Great for low and medium hold 'em

    This book is a great primer for Texas Hold 'em. The title is a bit of a misnomer. This strategies and analyses offered in this book are right on point for just about any level that the non-professional will play. I highly recommend.

    THIS BOOK WILL PAY FOR ITSELF 1000 FOLD

    I almost want to write a bad review for this book so no one will buy it, because this book is that good. I started playing poker about 6 months ago at the casinos and did not do too well. After reading this book I take home extra money 8 out of 10 times. I used to think that low-limit poker depended on luck, but after reading this book I found out that you just have to adjust your play. A definite must for any beginner who actually wants to win money.

    Without a doubt the first poker book you should pick up

    This book, I believe, is the first one anybody should pick up, if they¿re looking to improve their skills at the poker table. It explains concepts far more clearly and concisely than does Sklansky and Malmuth¿s Hold¿em for Advanced Players, which I ¿ like most readers, I think ¿had a fairly hard time getting through the first time I picked it up. There is nothing that stands out as a noticeable shortcoming, although I think that readers may initially have a little trouble getting comfortable with the more aggressive style of play the book recommends. That being said, aggressive play is essential to improving your poker skills. The sections on post-flop play are outstanding; in fact that¿s probably the most important piece of advice I internalized from this book: there are so many books and websites out there that devote tons of time to laying out preflop charts and guidelines, when post-flop play is exponentially more complex and important. I think readers still may not be equipped to handle the tougher games against super-aggressive opponents, but this book will go a long way toward helping you clean up against your buddies at your next poker night, or in the internet poker rooms ¿ I was initially hesitant about doing the online thing, but you can find some free money sign-up bonus codes floating around the internet that will make it worthwhile¿pokercroaker.com updates their codes frequently. Bottom line is that this is where I recommend all of my friends begin their reading; by far the best and most concisely written book I¿ve read on the topic.
