Considering you are trying to improve your tournament skills in poker then the only book i can recommend you is the Super System Blink

The book has been wrote by Doyle Brunson btw. I also suggest you to watch some instructional vids Smile

super sytem is a touch dated to say the least (suoer sytem II was published in the 90's i think).

better off with any sklansky books (tournament poker) and harringtons books are good - for a quick an accessible book try Phil Gordons's Little Green Book

Harrington is easy to understand and makes reference to other books too which is quite cool.. Video tutorials are good too. Log onto Pokerstars and sign up to the poker school....theres usually loads going obn there and you can get bonuses for passing the tests on there.

David Schlanskys "Theory of Poker" is recommended by many pro's and was a starting point for some of the biggest stars out there. It goes into game theory and is a good starting point. Cool

For MTT I've read Kill:Everyone and Raiser Edge (the sequel)

I'd recommend them both as good reads.

I prefer the HU book from Harrington. There are good strategys for all situations in HU games. It is only in english, but i think everybody can understand it.

There is a lot of good poker books out there written by most of the pro's , but if you want to learn, then a good way is to join poker school online at pokerstars , it has video's you can watch, then afterwards you do a test, this way you can learn from hands on instead of just reading about it.
