Swayne's Advanced Degree in Hold'em by Charley Swayne

Texas Hold’em is the most popular poker game across North America and Europe. Hold’em’s popularity surged in the early 2000s due to its exposure on television and on the internet. The no-limit betting form is used on the now widely televised World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour. Because each player only starts with two cards and the remaining cards are shared, Hold’em is highly opportune for strategic and mathematical analysis. Swayne’s Advanced Degree in Hold’em contains the results of years of study and application of the psychological and mathematical aspects of Texas Hold’em. Much of what is presented has never been published before. It is more of a university textbook than the traditional poker book. This is a book for the serious poker player or for one who wants to become world class.

My twenty year old son called me & suggested I buy and read Swayne's Advanced Degree in Hold'em. He had heard great things about the book and read a great review about the book.I'm a 48yr old woman & I've been playing Texas Hold'em for almost five years now and I'm always trying to improve my game; which is an ever ending battle. The book is written in a way so a player can understand and extract valuable information from it's pages. Quite a few books I've read don't really make since and are not written on a poker players level. The book is captivating and once you pick it up and start to read it you don't want to put it down.There are learning graphs and tables in the book which you can put your type of player into and learn an incredible amount of information from. There are questions & answers sections and if you play alot you will do well on this section. To me any book you can learn from is a valuable book and this one teaches as you read it. Charley Swayne did a great thing writing this book and I can't wait for another!
