are very good and very useful tips to become a better poker player but let's not forget one thing - most online poker rooms are rigged. They just want to run a lot and play as many tournaments as possible for their commission but when it comes to giving money, in tournaments some players have a very very very good fortune which i did not have not even once in real money games.

These four seems a bit outdated for my taste to be honest.
Interesting book sir, I will think about buying it on Amazon. There are only 3 pages available for preview ,but after reading them I'm sure that it is a helphul book written by a man who has lots of experience and thoughts about poker.

Congratulations, Mr. Murphy, on getting your book published!
I think the importance of giving a rat's ass about what anyone thinks about yourself should not be underestimated. You need to be self-conscious at the poker tables. You need to constantly mind your opponents' perception of your table image and adjust your playing style accordingly in order to become a long-term winning poker player.

Oh i had to translate that, to see what you are talking about. Had never heard of that saying, and it sounded funny also Wonder what is the story behind that red pants. Will need to do some more digging on this one, to figure it out
If only we could play online poker with italians and see what colour their pants are... we could make use of this proverb Hope that sooner or later all restrictions will be lifted and this wonderful times will come.
