Greetings.

Not Phil Hellmuth's book for cash games...lol. For SNG's his startegy advice is decent though from what i remember.

I bought his and Doyle's (now dated Super/System II) but the fundamentals are still there to a large extent.

I haven't bought any newer books - but be careful, there's plenty that aren't worth the paper they're written on

I try to read online poker articles more and more and try some of the strategy in cash games to try them out. But variance usually hits me hard and my bankroll gets quickly depleted. Sad

I had same experience, be careful use the strategy. We must remember they (writer ) play at high stake. Didn't work for me at low stake ( or buy in ). Good work at medium buy in MTT. Discuss with friend more useful for low buy in. I am sure different play at low stake.Conservative style is better for me to play low stake.

I think David Sklansky's "The Theory of Poker" is essential reading. It was considered advanced when it came out, but now it is seen as a more basic read. There is also lots of good information online, and don't underestimate how much good information is available from your fellow mobsters when you post hands, or ask questions on poker theory.

Welcome occultum, it's always nice to find more portuguese around, this is a great site. In our country, we dont have many offer in terms of poker books written in our language. In big stores, you can find something, but they tend to be centered in rules, not focusing on strategy. I once read one from Doyle Brunson which i consider very rich in terms of planning strategy, playing with the position and stuff, but i cant remember the name now. GL

My favorite book was HU No Limit Hold´em from Collin Moshman. OK this book was only in english and you can see that my english is not good, but i understand the most of them.

Thanks everyone for the answers and hey portuguese player =))
I think i'll go along with some of the suggestions and try to find Doyle's book and read it.
A friend of mine who is a pretty ok player told me not to read too much because i could become a very predictable player.
While i find this advice helpful in a way i think reading is a must aswell for selfconfidence like .. not being super rigid when playing because of what you read but be confident that you can read poker and know what theorically is the best decision possible.
So ye my goal is to learn as much as i can and then create my own style etc.

Btw books in english are ok for me i understand it well its a must in the world we live.

Macubaas if you could tell me more about those instructional vids would be nice aswell.

Don't know if you've spent any time reading "Poker Startegies" here in the BRM site, but I found it to be easy to read material which doesn't get to far out there with all the poker guru or should say opionated techniques / methods.

Also, search through the forum itself and you'll find some great threads which come from BRM's own Mobsters. There's an excellent thread on SnG's and several other posts related to the poker games that we all generally see and play. Good Luck with your search, but a lot of the books I've read are for the higher stake players or very experienced players that one is out to impress. Just my opinion so........

Shanky and harrington books in my opinion are the best so far avaliable. But u can find many books and strategies online so i think its better for you to buy another kind of books like Lord of Rings or Paulo Coelho!!!!
