The NoPayPOKER free online poker training lessons series forms the backbone of a great free poker library. We will keep adding to it forever but of course it cannot cover all poker knowledge!
So to add to the free lessons we are now also looking at the best poker books to read that we can find.
The poker books reviewed have been aggressively filtered and only top rated poker books have made the cut.
The structure is always to provide the essential information on the poker book, a synopsis of the content material with a brief summary of reviews we’ve discovered on the pros and cons of the books.
Title – Sit ‘n Go Strategy
* Writer(s) – Colin Moshman
* This version printed – July 2007
* Pages – 281
Brief summary –
We found a lot of good reviews for this book, plus, as there is a relative dearth of good poker education on sNg’s this has to be a must read poker book for all Sit and Go poker players.
Favorable review opinions –
* Very well written and comprehensive manual on how to play low and medium buy in, 1 table tournaments. Sit and Go game strategy split into easy to follow low, medium and high blind play sections.
* Goes over a really tight aggressive model of play, whilst he recognizes, that alternative playing styles may also be effective, when the players are skilled at post flop play
* A thorough examination of table situations, personal player types, stack and blind sizes, payouts, chip values, and just how they effect ideal approach is provided.
* Could be as valuable for the SNG player as Harringtons No Limit Series is to MTT players.
* After reading it I fully understood the concept of equity (including the term generally) a great deal better than before.
* I completed it in two days and immediately put $250 into my PokerStars balance.
* I like how the book is aimed in direction of online SNG play. You’ll find lots of players just doing Sit N Go’s just for fun, and Moshman enters into detail on exploiting such weak players.
Negative aspects –
* Not really for totally new players
Title – How to Win at Online Texas Hold ‘Em: Insider Tips, Strategies, and Advice to Help You Master the Game of Online Poker
* Author(s) – Jack Parker
* This release released – February 2010
* Pages – 78
Designed for novices. Every portion of the book is rich with all the newest poker information on how to rule the internet poker tables. Within, you will discover for example:
- Exactly how to figure out pot odds and outs.
- When you should blind steal.
- When and the way to correctly utilize the squeezing technique.
- The way to modify your pace of play when playing with experienced players.
- The best way to effectively use check boxes/auto plays.
- Ways to keep tabs on your opponents fold & flop percentages.
- How to use the chat box to your benefit.
* I found the info succinct and useful
* particularly took advantage of the chapter on bluffing and the one on playing in online sit-and-go’s.
* I took a real beating in an internet poker site a couple of weeks ago and made up my mind I had better find out a few important things before I returned. So – does it work? I earned over $400 yesterday online.
* for somebody like me who has never read a whole lot and is aiming to start bettering their game by learning, I believe it is a truly handy little book, and personally feel like it has undoubtedly paid for itself based on the amount of cash I’ve earned so far during my first forays into online play.
Negative aspects –
Mainly for newbies or those moving from live to internet for the very first time. Outside this and for those really in to the math side you’ll find it too modest.
That’s post 2 of our best books on poker review, while you do have to buy these books they are ones that are proven to pay for themselves fast.
