Most Helpful Customer Reviews
When I started playing poker, I decided to educate myself by reading about recommended strategies. To my dismay, I found that most of the information available was for limit hold 'em, and not the no-limit hold 'em that has become so popular through televised events. Doyle Brunson's Super System was about the only helpful book I was able to find, and even then Doyle's advice was somewhat aged (this has been rectified somewhat by the publication of Super System 2, which is far more relevant to today's players). Then I found this book, full of advice on no-limit and pot-limit (a very close cousin of no-limit) hold 'em. The book is still focused more on tournaments than cash games, but the advice is solid nonetheless. A lot of the material at the end (Cloutier's stories, it seems) feels tacked on, but the first 200 pages are full of great no-limit and pot-limit advice. Although Super System 2 might edge this book out just in sheer quantity alone, this book is a must-read for serious students of the game.
