New Poker Books
Woo-hoo! My order from Overstock.com just arrived today. It consists of the following:
- Seven Card Stud for Advanced Players by Sklansky, Mlamuth, and Zee--seems to be the bible of the game.
- Middle Limit Holdem Poker by Bob Ciaffone and Jim Brier--I've read great reviews, seems to be one of the most recommended books after Sklansky's Advanced Player book.
- Pot Limit & No-Limit Poker--I've been wanting this one for a while.
- The Complete Book of Hold'Em Poker--according to the reviews, it's far from a perfect book, but has good tips for loose games.
The total for the order came in at $60. I paid for it with cash from my poker bankroll--don't want to dip into the poker bankroll on a regular basis, but I figure I'll allow it for infrequent poker-related purchases.
Okay, I guess I'll have a lot to blog about once I actually read these puppies. Weight- and thickness-wise they remind me of textbooks, and having them all arrive at once makes me feel like I'm back in college at the start of a new semester . . . Advanced 7-Card Stud Theory, Applied Hold'Em Methodology, Introduction to Pot Limit, and a seminar on loose games . . .
