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.
i have been reading online today about starting hands and its better to fold and would have won than it is to call and lose. i have nearly doubled a bankroll today only $9 but its better than i have been doing. i going to stop for the day now I was winning last night then lost. I am happy with today
i still haven't got a book but i am reading online more and poker school Strategies on hear. it might just be a coincident but i think i am playing better . i dont want to spend cash on a book so i will have a look in the local library. i been playing fixed limit now i like it more than no limit

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.
