Harrington on Cash Games: How to Win at No-Limit Hold'em Money Games, Vol. 2

81. Harrington on Cash Games: How to Win at No-Limit Hold’em Money Games, Vol. 2

by Dan Harrington, Bill Robertie

Harrington on Cash Games Volume II covers turn and river play as well as playing loose and aggressive, dealing with others who play that way, bankroll management, and other topics. Harrington explains complicated poker theories well, but when it comes to putting it into practice, his advice is hit-or-miss. His advice for playing the turn are solid enough, but he badly misunderstands river play and his advice for defeating loose-aggressive players, and weak games is a little lacking. Small-stakes players and those new to cash games will get a lot from this book, especially if they know what to ignore. More experienced players will find many of the advanced topics misguided and unhelpful.

Killer Poker By the Numbers: Mathematical Edge for Winning Play

82. Killer Poker By the Numbers: Mathematical Edge for Winning Play

by Tony Guerrera

Poker is an extremely situational game. Every situation is unique and deserves thorough consideration. Regardless of the particular circumstance you find yourself in, there is an underlying framework through which all good poker decisions are made. Playing winning poker is all about the following process:

  1. Putting your opponents on hand distributions
  2. Evaluating your hand
Figuring out how your opponents will respond to every possible action you can make
  4. Deducing the line of play yielding the highest EV (expectation value) based on #1-#3. Putting your opponents on hands and figuring out how your opponents will respond to your actions are all about reading betting patterns, picking up physical tells, and recognizing psychological cues from your opponents.

While many books out there give their readers the basic tools to go into battle, Killer Poker goes into rigorous detail about mathematical concepts that other so-called advanced poker books gloss over. It gives readers the tools to do the analysis themselves, thus taking their game to the next level.
