This text is the first to tackle the complex issues presented when playing short-handed and high-stakes limit hold 'em. But even if you happen to only play in softer games, many of the key concepts presented will still help you against the other good players in your game.
Winning in Tough Hold 'em Games includes an examination of pre-flop play, covering issues at a depth of sophistication which have never appeared in print before including discussions of blind stealing, re-stealing, isolating a loose player, big blind and small blind defense, and blind versus blind play. Also covered are thorough sections on playing heads-up post flop and semi-bluffing. In addition, over 50 hands, taken from high stakes online games which were played by "Stoxtrader," are presented along with appropriate discussion of the strategy involved.

Don't spend your money or time on this POS. I'd give it 0 stars if I was allowed. The book is in dire need of an editor and the bulk of the content is charts with not nearly enough analysis to put the charts in context. Beginning to intermediate players will get smoked if they follow this advice. Save money on the book with the added bonus of saving money at the poker table.Was this review helpful?
