The book is made for players who already have a good foundation in NL Holdem and have not enough hands to justify concepts they believe are correct.

If you find the book lacking then its probably too advanced for you and Im sorry to say that you just dont get it.

Most of the concepts in the book I have already thought of but didnt have enough hands to justify what I already thought or simply did it intuitively. Many concepts that were set in stone I questioned why in the past and got slammed on forums years ago. I felt I was correct in my thinking. Some of the concepts I actually had before Dusty started playing. But I am amateur player and dont play 40 hours a week. So his hours of experience in a shorter time obviously are better than mine.

I have made some serious money in online/live cash games and MTTs. I am a winning player to give all of you a scope of where I am coming from.

It goes beyond the basic foundations and encourages fluid thinking which is something I try to get poker associates to think of.

I highly recommend this book for any microstakes player who want to advance and go up to play small stakes and medium stakes.
I also recommend it to any losing small stakes player who wants to improve his game.

The book describes how the real WINNING game is played in the last years, mostly at small stakes and medium stakes.
The price is also excellent.

Dusty Schmidt is one of the best and most succesfull cash games players in the world. He wins millions of dollars every year by multitabling
medium stakes and high stakes at Pokerstars. He has a really very strong mind and he is a real winner in life. He managed to overcome serious healt problems, and difficult situations and become a poker legend.

He is not like some authors that wrote books with "winning strategies" but they don't play real poker ... So his advises and his game are really in the top of world class level. He is great and his books also are great.

The book is also very well structured.

The book has only two negative points.
One negative point of the book is that uses Phil Helmuth's name and reputation as a funny trick to increase its sales and "attacks" (with humor) some statements that Phil Helmuth wrote on his very good begginers book "play poker like the pros". These Phil Hemluth statements was advice for totally beginners who want to play LIMIT holdem (in the next chapters Phil Helmuth provides an "indermediate" and a "more advanced" strategy for beginners) and this book is for NO LIMIT Holdem. For example Helmuth wrote "raise to find out where you stand" for some specific cases on LIMIT HOLDEM FLOPS, where this advice is correct, because the raiser has to put only one small bet more for raising than calling.

There are some very good points that will play nicely online, but since online is no more, this book helped me in another way. It allows me to see the pure aggressiveness in which live games are not, help me point out "online" players and stack them off. There are some very trivial points, but the biggest help was the 25ish hand examples. This book is good to think about ranges.

This is a well-written, well-structured, efficient and effective book. Whether or not Dusty's style of play fits the tables you play at, this will challenge and stimulate your thinking about a variety of poker situations and poker "wisdoms." It's important not to take any bit of advice at face value, but to examine how it plays out in specific situations. This book presents not only some ways of thinking about poker but examines the details of how various hands played out and the thinking behind the betting decisions in those hands. This is a book I'll be going back to when I'm getting lazy and predictable in my play, to shake things up and get me thinking at a higher level.

Don' t need to elaborate its just the worst book on poker I've ever read. The positive review must have been a shill for the author. I'd feel terrible giving this book to someone for free since I know it would be a waste of time. I ended up bearing through all the pages kept it for a few days then decided it was taking up to much space and I put it where it belongs in the trash bin.
