Editorial Reviews

Review

"I seldom recommend a poker book. However, the books Andy Nelson have written deserve special note. His books contain solid poker information for the low-limit planer. Andy consistently encourages fundamental play. I strongly recommend that serious poker players read these books by Andy Nelson." -- Mike Caro, The Mad Genius of Poker

From the Back Cover

Andy does not fit the stereotype image of the western gambler with stogie and cowboy hat. Andy is a free-lance writer, teacher, philosopher, master and student of the game. He is a straight-thinking mater-of-fact writer. He is constantly illustrating theory with actual hands that you are likely to play. His writing is logical, humorous, easy to follow and down to earth.

This book is not any better than the beginner book, and actually it is worse. Again there are too few examples, and the ones that are present don't seem to convey the point very well. Andy Nelson may be a good hold'em player, but I don't think he can teach well through a book. Again, I would recommend the book by Ken Warren which is much more thorough and cheaper (1 book instead of Andy's three).

Hi there, I consider myself a strong intermediate "Hold Em" player. I finished last year with a very very nice profit. Almost all of that profit I attribute to the books I have read by Andy Nelson. His Book One got me started where he explained the basics of "Texas Hold 'Em, Then I bought his Intermediate book and discovered more secrets and ideas that work at the table. I got his Advanced book in October and this book has enabled me to average more than double what my hourly rate was. I was having trouble with my emotional control until his Advanced book really made sense to me and I was able to change. Poker is an emotional game and it is easy to lose control. Since that book came to my home and I read it, my hourly rate has increaed. I have recently read a few chapter of another book by Mr Nelson that were great. That book is 101 WAYS TO WIN!!!

Format: Paperback
The best thing about this book is that it shouldn't take anyone w/a basic understanding of Hold 'Em more then 1 hour to read this tome in it's entirety (72 pages, incl. glossary, large type and lots of 'clip-art' quality illustrations). On the downside, the information and strategy presented in this book are simplistic and somewhat out of date when the original 1987 publication date is taken into consideration. I would recommend this book more for the seasoned player who may enjoy this breezy little read for it's nostalgia value, but for those still learning the game there are much better, more contemporary alternatives out there.

This is another excellent book by Andy Nelson. His style is accessible to any poker player. In this book in chapter one he emphasizes the importance of position in hold'em. That particular chapter is a must read when one needs to review the basics of the game. Whenever I slip off my game (which is often given that I've only been playing seriously for a year) I go back and review this along with some other chapters from Nelson's books on hold'em. This book is crucial for anyone who wants to move beyond the beginner's level of the game.

Format: Paperback
Hey, I am a 16 year old junior in high school and have been playing cards for the last few months w/my friends on low limit games. I am interested in getting into bigger games but not before I have enough knowledge of the game. This book dramatically helped with my decision making skills at the poker table, and it has made it easier for me to decide when to fold and when to hang tough. I recommend this book for a player like me, one who's looking for improvement.Buy this book if you wanna increase ur winnings!
