Editorial Reviews

Review

Simply put, Moorman's Book of Poker is in the top tier of poker strategy books I've read in the past decade. It truly exemplifies the thought processes one must cultivate in order to advance to the highest levels of the game. (Chad Holloway PokerNews)

… a must buy for anyone who is remotely interested in understanding how a world class professional thinks about the game. (Doyle Brunson, Godfather of Poker)

You will view the game differently after reading this, but most importantly, you will find a newfound respect for the game. With Christmas just around the corner, treat yourself to a copy. It’s class. (Lee Davy, poker columnist CalvinAyre.com)

..quite frankly, if you're a tournament poker player of any level, this will be the best poker investment you can make. Go buy this book, you can thank me later. (Steve Ruddock, poker columnist PokerUpdate)

From the Back Cover

Chris Moorman is the most successful online poker tournament player in history.

  • Leads the industry with more than $11 million in online cashes
  • Excels on the tournament circuit with over $4 million in live cashes
  • Placed in the top three in online tournaments 651 times to date

Many strong poker players have written books explaining their thought processes. However, players at the low- to mid-stakes who want to advance to the highest levels find the leap a daunting one. Chris, through years of hard work, has achieved this advance and now wants to help you do the same.

Moorman’s Book of Poker has a unique approach. Chris analyzes 80 tournament hand histories played by co-author Byron Jacobs – a typical mid-stakes player. The adoption of a coaching format allows Chris to explain in clear detail exactly what is needed to progress to the next level of expertise.

Format: Paperback
This is absolutely not a book for beginners. The type of analysis you will find inside is probably not useful to somebody playing at the micro stakes. However, if you play at a level of buyin where a decent percentage of the field are "thinking players," this book could serve as an invaluable resource.

So many poker books out there speak in vague generalities. They address concepts that you read and think "yeah, that makes sense," yet have very little actual practical application at the table. The format of Moorman's book was very interesting--completely different from your typical poker book. Moorman speaks in specifics...in terms of actual hands that were played by his co-author. The level of thinking displayed during every is astonishing and gives fantastic insight into one of the best MTT players alive.

You will get very little out of this book if you try and read it like a novel. This isn't just something you can read though each page, rarely pausing to consider what was just said. I probably spent 30+ minutes on every ~4 page hand looking at the action and thinking about what I would do in a given spot before reading what Chris had to say about the situation. IMO, this is the only way to read this book while getting something out of it.

This is certainly not the best book I've ever read on the subject of poker and it isn't the only book you'll ever need to read but it is an excellent resource that will compliment other reading (the Harrington on Hold'em series comes to mind).

When you're reading, try not to get too caught up in the individual hands but think about the thought process Chris is applying as he breaks down a hand. This isn't a "do X, Y, and Z and you will be successful" kind of book, it's more of a "look at the way I'm thinking about the game, learn to think about the game by modelling my thought-process and you can be successful" kind of book.

Good tournament book. Book is written from an interesting point of view. One dude plays the hand and Chris gives his thoughts on it.
Downside is it's mainly internet tournament (MTTs or SNGs). Still a good read.

This book is a ten. Great insight into how the elite players in the game think through a hand. I dont think I've ever been as happy with a book purchase as I am with this one- especially a poker book. I hope to see a second book from Chris in the future.

It was okay, nothing earth shattering. I was drawn to it by the way the table was laid out.
I have 20 books on Hold-em and this would rank in the mid range....No criticism, but not much new info.

one of the best online and live pro today. He really shows how the elite poker players are analyzing hands today. I've read all the classic poker books (Harrington on Hold Em, Supersystem, etc), but this is one of the few books that address the challenges of playing online and against the level of skilled players today. Really insightful hand analysis. Great if you're playing poker online or live NOW

I had great expectations because I generally like the style of analysing a hand twice (firstly by the co-author and secondly by chris) But it is not very insightful. Of course, Moorman has a nice way of analysing spots but most of the time he is just correcting the co-authors analysis. In result, he is sometimes lacking depth. This book could have been great when either the co-author was a better player or when Chris himself selected the hands from his own HH's. Furthermore, with all these years of experience under his belt, I would have at least expected some chapters about the modern development of onlinepoker-dynamics, some calculations, insights on live-poker, game selection, satellites and most of all: HH's selected by Chris himself. This book is 100% hands that the co author played.
When I buy a book with the name Moorman on it, I am NOT looking for advice on why minraises deep in mtt's are advantageous to 2,5x's.

In conclusion: When you are looking to move up from micro stakes, this book should help you to get some new insights on playing mtt's. When you are an experienced grinder, you may feel like this book could have been reduced to 70 pages and be done with it. I don't think Chris invested the time he should have to create a solid book.

these are NOT Moorman's hand, and if you ever watched his interviews, he isn't quite open to making training videos to make you anywhere as good as him. So... he is brilliant poker mind, but don't expect to be anywhere near his caliber reading a book of some supernova freeroll hands. He'd appreciate the donation though.

Not really completely written by Moorman, and you're only getting half of his insights and half from some ghostwriter. I would have rather the ghostwriter also be an established pro to get a higher level of discussion on hands.
