Lee Jones' Winning Low-Limit Hold'em
About Lee Jones
"Don't read this book! If everyone followed the instructions in this book I'd have to find a new line of work. P.S. If you see a long haired homeless guy sleeping on a park bench, please give him a dollar."
-- Chris Ferguson, Champion, 2000 World Series of Poker
In spite of being a consistent winner at low-limit Hold’em, Lee Jones still has to work for a living, so he is a Computer Aided Design programmer in Silicon Valley. He is delighted that he can now play cardroom poker smoke-free. He always enjoys local home games where there's no rake and you don't toke the dealers.
He got into poker about fourteen years ago, having studied blackjack a lot and discovering that you had to drive a long way from San Jose to play blackjack with pretty bad rules against a multi-billion dollar corporation that was determined to beat you. Poker is a much easier way to make money at cards.
Lee is a NAUI-certified scuba instructor, and spends as much time as possible teaching scuba in the Monterey area and diving all over the world. It turns out that in scuba diving, like poker, the idea is to find as many fish as possible.
His other interests include writing, ultimate Frisbee, trout fishing, and performing music.
He and his wife, Lisa, live in San Jose with Lisa’s sons David and John. All four of them scuba dive, perform music, and play poker, so his life is pretty darn good.
Introduction to Lee Jones' Winning Low-Limit Hold'em
Since its first publication in 1994, Winning Low-Limit Hold'em, by Lee Jones, has become a major reference on playing Texas Hold'em at the lower limits. However, poker has changed over the several years and Lee has continued to study the game. The result is this revised and expanded second edition.
If you would like to learn to play Hold’em, this book is solid. It won’t teach you a lot of advanced poker theory, but it will give you a solid foundation with which you can be a winner at low-limit Hold’em.
This book is very elementary, perhaps a good starting point for the beginners. I much prefer Sklansky's
Advanced Hold'em and Miller's Small-Stakes Hold'em for really developing your limit game.
If you would like to get
introduced to the game of limit Texas hold'em, you can start here, but you'll eventually graduate to one
or both of the aforementioned books.
