Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply unreal -- a MUST buy for poker players This book how now supplanted Lee Jones’ Winning Low Limit Hold’Em as the first book on hold’em that I recommend to my friends. Despite the title, it’s hardly a beginner’s book – in fact, I think the author’s tone strikes a great balance between not talking down to the reader, and introducing intermediate and advanced strategies that will bridge the gap from novice to experienced player.

Call me an old-timer, but I had never really gotten into online poker, until my son insisted I “get with the times”, and I happily play on 4 or 5 different sites now. Another post here led me to pokercroaker.com which I found had bonus sign-up codes to the various online sites, and reviews of each. I will say that the style of play online is substantially different than what I was used to in live games, but Miller’s book is just as applicable. It’s written clearly and concisely, and in my humble opinion should be a staple in the library of every poker player, no matter the level of experien
