I need some ideas for some poker books to possibly check out that may help with my game further. I would really like to work on my game in 2016 and at least come out ahead.


Thanks

If you look up any of the big name poker players , and you'll find a book that they wrote.
Since each players technique is different, i'm not to sure how much help a book would be.
like , what works for one player, might not work for another player.

I think your best bet is just practice, on smaller money tables.
When you start to feel comfortable, then move up a little.

But then again, you never know , a book might just help.
This is just my opinion.


Merry Christmas to All. Thumbs Up

I'm just finding with the growing poker population all the low stakes seem to be a donk fest....I need to study more on the mathematics and odds better behind this. I am personally not doing too too bad but I wouldn't mind jumping stakes a bit as I can afford it and i have played higher stakes and its not as bad for the donks!

There are many free ways to gain some knowledge. The best is to find some torrents of eBooks or videos.
Also you can always check out the free books that google uploaded, they have a lot, but I don't know if they have some books about poker.

But there are also some great tips from Daniel on youtube. He has enough videos about online poker "techniques".

have fun reading! Thumbs Up

I found Gus Hansen's book instructive. Probably should read it a few times.

I dont need to learn how to play poker, i just need to learn not to throw a laptop out the window with the ever rising poker population and where they think they can shove every hand!

I have read 'phil gordon's little green book' and the classic 'doyle brunson super system'.

Both good books. You can pick some things out, that suit you the most.

Good luck with the search. Thumbs Up

I have read quite a few books and I always seem to find a few things interesting in all of them but I think most players disregard a lot of points because we all play poker differently.I found a book by Jared Tendler called The mental game of poker very interesting and Chris Moorman's book was good.
Also Harrington on Hold em and Doyle Brunson's super system are old but well worth reading.

Well i do agree with StheP, u have to watch people play poker, good thing this days is that, thats a very easy thing to do, thx to twich and youtube, coz poker evolves a lot it doesnt stay constant, there are a lot of approaches to HOLDEM and u need to have more ways or different strategy for same situations, books i find outdated, they are written at one point where one certain strategy worked pretty well, till some1 found a counter strategy to beat that one, so u see u have to collect as many different strategies as u can, and like all the great players say "U HAVE TO BE A CAMELEON ON THE TABLE" adapt to the situation, u cant be all the time agro, patient or loose, u have to adapt to the players and the structure of the game u playin Big Smile

Here is an idea. If yo want to read a book, read one that has nothing to do with poker.
It will be pretty much a waste of reading there Smile
All you need to know can be found online and you can do this at the same time while you grind Smile

i have heard Phil Gordon's little green/red books are good but the poker online is a new breed nowadays so maybe wouldn't apply to todays game...even Joe Navarro's books are useless if your only playing online....so online vids may be the way....snippy tie a pillow round the laptop and add a bungee to it...at least it will only cost a window......

What's kind of tourney you play ? rebuy and add on ? yes, a lot play like that, collecting capital ( coin ) with gambling, but they play normal or tight after add on break.

Try play at freezout tourney, they play different.

Anyway, read some book is useful to know type of our and opp play, at least we know who play better or worse.

yea, probably watching some videos from past games with pros in, in tournaments like WSOP,
it will be the best thing you can do, while you grind at the same time.
But remember to do some adjustments to it, cause levels are different between them and yours Smile

I will tell you one book that you should probably avoid and that is called "let there be range",not sure how great the book is as it has mixed reviews but the stumbling block is the price.....this is just a book and it costs $1500,not $15.00 but $1500!!!! surely no one would pay that???

Hmm i would not recommend poker books for me in my opinion they get you some knowledge but if you takes time to get that knowledge then it can becomes redundant and you would have paid for it and all, prefer to watch videos as there are always new videos everyday and so on , and it keeps updating so good luck mate have fun at the tables hope you do well and make a lot of money mate cheers peace out again have fun!!

I agree with KLASH, that Moormans book (of this year) is a good book to use. I also like some of the early offerings from hellmuth and Harrington. I also agree that you can get a whole load of good learning from the poker sites. Have you tried poker school online?
