    Fresh, useful

    Other video poker books focus on pie-in-the-sky games. That's great if you're playing in the few Nevada casinos that have those games, but useless for those of us who play anywhere else in the country. This is the first book I've seen that tells how to get the most out of a game when the casino lowers the pay table. If you're playing Double Bonus poker and flushes pay 6-1, you need a different strategy than if they pay 7-1 or 5-1. This book quizzes you on the strategies, then provides explanations of how to change strategies and why. The quizzes are fun, and the author makes it interesting with a lot of first-hand stories about playing video poker. This is simply the best video poker book around.

    Where's All The Answers?

    I went into this book expecting to have all the answers. Instead, all the book gave me was the same things about positive expectation machines played over a long term period that should make me a winner - the exact same things writers have been feeding us who've lost for years. The author absolutely did not convince me that he or anyone else can win using the strategy proposed. I've lost for years playing that way, and now I've lost again.

    Great learning tool

    I've heard and read so often that with the right strategy you can actually come out ahead if you play video poker, but until now, have not been able to get a handle on a strategy. This book helped me tremendously. Not only did I learn to play better video poker, I actually had fun reading the book and learning. The quiz format made it painless. I've read other video poker books, but I always found it a bit grueling working my way through all the charts and calculations. John Grochowski makes it easy. He uses anecdotes to illustrate certain points and they serve as great memory triggers. The book has already helped me improve my play at some of the casinos near my home. I can't wait for my next trip to Vegas. I recommend the video Poker Answer Book to anyone who wants a better understanding of the game and how to play it. Fine learning tool.
