David Sklansky's Holdem for Advanced Players

Share This Post!
Holdem for Advanced players by David Sklansky is one of the most important books about the game.

Written by Jesse McLean


I'm running out of good things to say about David Sklansky (and his right hand man Mason Malmuth). These guys are almost without peer as gambling (especially poker) theorists. Not surprisngly, Holdem for Advanced Players is one of the definitive books on Holdem.

Part One is basically a crash course in how to play in relatively tough (by low limit standards) games. It's more than just a guide to starting hands (although that's probably worth the price of admissions by itself).

Part Two introduces a lot of important concepts like semi-bluffing and also covers some common situations (like how to play the river when it's heads-up).

Online Poker Tournaments -------- Poker games all have regulations and rules and limits that are particular to the type of game that you are playing. If you aren't familiar with these rules and regulations it will make your run for the money much more difficult. One of the most effective things you can do prior to starting is the regulations and strategy tips that you can get at well-known online gambling sites. Then you should try it out at the free tables until you are confident in your ability to play well. Online Poker Tournaments are no exception to this.
