Format: Paperback
This book contains information that is for the most part correct, however it geared strictly for beginners. If you are at all familiar with casino poker then this book is probably too basic to be of much value. Concepts and advanced stratagies needed to beat 10-20 games and up are not covered in enough detail or depth to help you against todays well educated player. Good for someone who plays in a friendly home game once a week for fun. If you really want to become an expert you will need to find books specific to the type of poker your playing. Try books by mason malmuth and or david sklansky.

Along with most of the other reviews on here, I agree that this is a great beginners book. It doesn't get too much into detail about higher limit games, but beginners don't need to worry about that yet. It does a great job of explaining different types of major poker games. It also tells you a key aspect of the game that I think it equally as important as knowing the game, and that's self control and money management. The glossary in the back is also useful. The only down side to this book is it doesn't get into great detail on betting structure. When I first read this book, I noticed the most popular low limit game fo Texas Hold 'Em (1-4-8-8), is not really talk about. Overall, if you are new to the game of Poker, and want to learn the essentials, GET THIS BOOK!

I play this game we call poker several nights a week and usually do pertty well at it, I might add, I read about the game, lots, sometimes for just the amusing stories, but mostly for help. There's many books buy all sorts of authors, but one of my favarites is by Andy Nelson called "A Winners Guide".It's unique in the fact that he blends personal observations with large doses of strategy that I can refer to without becoming bored with all the math and dryness of others I've read. It's a book I can really use and enjoy, a rare combination for sure.

I read this book entirely through the day I got it, and then a second time a few days later. I then tried out Mr. Nelson's suggestions and strategies at a local card room. My play improved 1000%. I was seeing things I'd never noticed before. I caught myself several times thinking about staying when I should be folding. One trip to the poker room saved me the cost of this book five-fold! Thank you, Mr. Nelson!

I've read several introductory books on poker in my attempt to improve my game, and this is the one I would recommend to all beginners. It is clearly written and enjoyable to read. Two things this book had that most don't are a discussion of the "home game" and a list of other poker resources. I've ordered Nelson's 1st book on hold 'em and am looking forward to reading it.
