David Sklansky No Limit Hold'em Theory and Practice
From the Back Cover
No limit hold'em is exploding in popularity. Before 2000, it could be difficult to
find a game. In 2006, it is played everywhere -- in casino cardrooms, in
backrooms and homes, and on the Internet.
Now anyone can find a game, but few know how to play well. Most players learn
by watching television or by listening to dubious advice from their friends. While
they may have picked up a valuable tidbit here or there, most players have two
options: wise up or go broke.
The world's foremost poker theorist, David Sklansky, and noted poker
authority, Ed Miller, will wise you up quickly. No Limit Hold'em: Theory and
Practice is the definitive work on this complex game. It provides you with a window into
the heads of experts, teaching you in straightforward and enjoyable terms the
how's and why's of winning play.
It covers critical concepts like manipulating the pot size, adjusting correctly to
stack sizes, winning the battle of mistakes, reading hands, and manipulating opponents
into playing badly. It teaches you about implied odds and how to size your
bets and raises effectively. It even covers many principles of short stacked play
that will give you a big edge in no limit
Never before have so
many people played
no limit hold'em, and
never before has there
been so much opportunity
to win big. If you
want your share of the
spoils, read this book!
