About The Book

Expanded and Updated 2nd Edition to the International Bestseller…

Book Cover - Click to EnlargeWhether you’re an expert or a first-time player, this concise, comprehensive guide, is packed with tips and information you need to know. For beginners, you’ll learn the rules of Texas Hold’em, basic strategy, and how to play in a cardroom. More advanced players will benefit from statistical charts, vignettes from actual poker games, and detailed information on how the social and psychological aspects of the game determine strategy.

Readers also learn the unique view that an expert chess player brings to analyzing poker, as author Sam Braids compares and contrasts the two games. Look inside for some of the charts and information—in highly usable formats—you can put to use right now.

Also includes: An analysis of online poker, how to use your computer to play Internet poker, and explanations of the strategic adjustments necessary to succeed online.

“An excellent book for the losing player looking to win or for the novice looking to learn the game for the first time, Braids excels in explaining the sometimes-confusing concepts necessary for profitable Texas Hold’em play, by breaking down the subject into meaningful bite-sized pieces. He then includes many actual hand situations to illustrate the clear points he is making. This is a masterful book, and an excellent addition to the poker literature.”

 --Ashley Adams, Host of the radio show House of Cards
