Overview

Why do you lose at poker?

Before you answer that question, think about this. There is no magic key that unlocks the door to poker. You might be able to pinpoint a leak or two in your game, but you may be surprised to find that there are many more lurking under the surface.

This book shows you the sixteen most common errors in poker, and how to avoid them. You will learn the keys to finding the leaks in your game and plugging them for good.

Stepping away from the table and watching others play incorrectly is the best path to understanding your own mistakes. You'll learn why these errors are so bad, and why they cost you money over and over. Recognizing these errors in your own game can be painful, but the rewards of revealing them are well worth it.

If you're ready to admit that you'd like to lose less and win more, then you need this book!

Foreword - Greg Raymer
Of all the guys in poker you've never heard of, Russ and Scott are two of the smartest. They are long-time winning poker players, and have done a great job of putting that knowledge into this book to help you become a better player. I believe this book will help make anybody who is willing to work at his game into a winning player.

Meet the Author

Russell Fox began playing poker while in college at Berkeley but did not begin to take the game seriously until 1999. Then, while living in Seattle with free time, he began to play in the local cardrooms and tournaments. Almost immediately he became a winning player, and he has not had a losing year to date. He has had numerous final table appearances, including winning the 2001 BARGE no-limit hold'em championship. You can usually find Russ playing no-limit hold'em in one of the Southern California cardrooms.

Away from the tables, Russ is an Enrolled Agent (a Federally licensed tax preparer) and the principal of his own consulting and tax practice, Clayton Financial and Tax. He also has written articles for two poker websites, www.pokerschoolonline. com and www.thepokerforum.com.

Russ's other interests including bicycling and tournament bridge.

Scott T. Harker has also been playing poker since college. Poker became an outlet for his competitive juices. He began playing poker seriously to supplement his income while living in Las Vegas. Today Scott plays mainly online poker, in low-to-middle-limit and no-limit hold'em cash games. Scott has been a successful winning cash game player since 1999.

Scott has his own consulting practice, specializing in technical and business documentation. He is also an editor for ConJelCo, and a published poet.

Currently living in Youngstown, Ohio, Scott's other interests revolve around his family: his wife Brittania and his son Blaine.
