The how-to-win guide for the blue chip of poker games.

Texas Hold'em, the game featured on the popular television programs and dealt at well-known tournaments, has quickly become the one to play—and the one to win. In the context of teaching readers the basics of Texas Hold'em, this revised edition covers “No Limit” strategies and tournaments, and the basics for winning bigger cash pots. Although the dynamics for this version of the game are similar to its low-limit cousin, “No Limit” strategy is quite different.

    Great Hold 'Em starters guide

    I picked this NOOKbook up not to long ago when I started getting into texas hold 'em while out here on deployment. Its an easy ready and simplifies a lot of the concepts of playing poker the right way. It has handy charts that explain Outs and Odds, and gives you tips on your best course of action with given hole cards, position at the table, and playing style of your opponents. Overall a great read with out to much big talk to confuse novice players. I would recommend it to any player because of the useful tables and charts included in it.
