Hold em Poker For Advanced Players By Sklansky and Malmuth

$ 7.99 $ 10

Texas hold 'em is hard. There is probably no other form of poker as difficult. Yet, the game appears deceptively simple. Many players, even after much experience at the poker tables, still play as though any two cards can win. Of course, those who play in this fashion quickly lose their money. The book you are holding, written by David Sklansky and Mason Malmuth, has had far-reaching effects on the poker world. Simply put, since the original edition of this book, hold 'em has become, on average, a much tougher game to beat. If you have aspirations of being a serious player you will have to study the strategies and techniques in this text or you will be left behind. If you are new to the game, but are willing to put in the requisite time and effort, you soon will be more proficient at this form of poker than many of today's professional players. However, don't expect to become an expert overnight.

In Hold 'em Poker For Advanced Players, the authors provide not only numerous sophisticated concepts, but lots of examples as well. Many of these advanced strategies never appeared correctly in print until the first edition was originally released in 1988. With the twenty-first century edition, they have done it again. Much ofthe material that follows will be brand new to even successful pr~fessional players. Put another way, I stated in 1988 that "Numerous concepts contained in this book are wellunderstood only by a very small group of players - extremely successful players, I might add." Again, this statement is true today.
