How many poker books have you read? I haven't read any one but I am a winning player... If you have read some poker books do you think that you are a better player?

I think if you read the right books you get a lot of usefull information, but most of the published are crap, especially the "we make you beginner to a pro"-ones.

It certainly is.

The worst has to be Phil Hellmuths book. As a learning tool its about as much use as a pork pie at a Jewish Wedding

Someone bought me a poker book for xmas. It was for NLHE tourney play, written by Jeff Purdy. Anyway, I could have written the book, but made for an interesting bathroom read...

lol +2 suppah system from me

Suppah system 2 much better- but its a book 2 read (like 1aswell) that covers all games- it doesnt reallly specialise....
John Vorhais killer poker books are worth a look- i liked them

It's not about xperience imho

but a book can always back up your strats / or gives U a differetn idea about hands / rankings and whatever the fook U want to discuss.

Till now i have red three poker books, but i cant say i am a better player because of that. I am a more informed player, conscious of what is consider a good or a bad play acording to my position and to my chip rank at the table. The books i read only explained to game in theory, not the way to play some hands, or examples of what to do in some ocasions, like when you feel you are short stacked, if you should go all in with any hand so that, even if you loose, at least you dont pass the shame of being out of the table because you ran out of chips t the blinds (some friends defend this way of playing like a religion, but i have already made my way to the payed places playing very tight short stacked). I still want t read a book that explains the way of playing AA at TG+1 (of course there is not one ight way, but its nice to see how pros play it in different ways) or at the Button.

I couldnt give two hoots how I win a tournament as long as I win it.

Considering its the Aussie millions and won him a cool $1 million dollars, I'd play every hand the same way if it would get me the same result..

i did not read one book about poker, i have no idea at all if a poker book is very helpfull ... i just believe that playing and keep on playing is the best way to improve your poker game and i also have find out a long time ago that the higher the stakes the more carefull most people or playing ...
