Editorial Reviews

Review

Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em...has set the standard for what a poker book should be and is by far the most definitive no-limit hold'em strategy guide to date. --Andrew Brokos, thinkingpoker.net

Small Stakes No-Limit Hold'em is a well-written, high-level discussion of no-limit hold'em that does a masterful job of explaining difficult, complex concepts with clarity and precision. --Martin Harris, pokernews.com

Miller and Co. are established authors with a strong sense of how to communicate both beginner and advanced ideas, and those skills are on display in this book...This book fills a critical gap providing recreational to intermediate players with the tools they need to be competitive in modern online no-limit games. --Chris Grove, parttimepoker.com

Format: Paperback
I bought this back when it was first released as an ebook, so I can only speak to the content in the book. The information isn't anything new or groundbreaking, and if you are subscribing to any of the video training sites then most of this information should be familiar to you. What the book does well is driving those points home with a ton of well thought out examples.

The bulk of the book is part 2 (beating 200NL) and it does a very good job of breaking down the basic skills you need to beat aggressive 6 max games (stealing, value betting, isolating, 3/4/5 betting, ranging, etc.). I personally found the chapters on value betting and handling opposing aggression to be the most useful chapters in the book. The third part of the book (7 easy steps...) is mostly fluff, but its not very long so its not too bad. Part 4 (beyond 200NL) is good as well, particularly the sections on overbetting and underbetting the flop. Overall I would say I was pleased with the purchase, and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Well written (as are all Ed Miller tomes), clear and concise. You wont' get all the info on your 1st or even 5th read, but you will become a much more proficient no-limit poker player if you learn this material.
Written for online 6-Max games, but just as easily adapted to live full-ring games. Mainly you are taught how to be aggressive to keep up with current no-limit trends.
One of the top 5 poker books I have ever read (own 60+).

This book really gets you thinking about the fact that you must either have the best hand at showdown or be ready to be aggressive and steal pots. We all know that aggressive play works, but this book hammers the point home. The book focuses on online 6-max play, but the concepts apply to live full ring no-limit hold 'em games.
A great read!

Buy for online only. Not as useful for live table games. Also it really covers 6 MAX tables so if you are looking for full ring games this book isnt for you.

The book is very well written and is a great way to learn some advanced concepts on NL holdem. Especially the concept of stack to pot ratio is presented in a very extensive but easily understandable manner. Overall, a great read for anybody serious about improving their NL skills.

I highlighted so many parts of this book I think I maxed out the settings on my Kindle. VERY good material. Only drawback would be if you could not convert most of the 6 handed online advice to your particular game. If you can do that and read between the lines, the value of this book may be immeasurable in terms of MORE profit in the future. Buy it.

I've only been playing poker for about four months. Before I read this book, I was consistently losing at the .01/.02 tables. After reading and putting these strategies into practice, I saw a tremendous change in my game. I went from consistently losing at those stakes, to winning each and every night. I started to move up to some higher limits, and at .05.10, I was consistently making about $20 after playing for only 1-2 hours a night. Some up and downs, of course, but consistently trending upward. I built my meager bankroll from $10 to $110 in about three weeks. As you can imagine, this did a lot for my confidence.

Which is where the "be careful," comes in. Thinking I was a bad ass, I decided to try the game that the book was written for: 1/2. I know the authors tell you that you should have a 100bb bankroll for the stakes you're playing, but I was on a roll. I had the tools. After holding my own for about 10 minutes, my entire bankroll disappeared in one hand. So, be careful, and listen to the authors about bankroll management. Now I have to start over from scratch.

Back to the drawing board. As a learning tool, though, I can't say enough about this book. I can't wait for their next one, Vol. II of Professional No Limit Hold'em.

Good luck at the tables!

I have a bunch of poker books, and many are not well written or accessible in terms of easy understanding for the amateur player. This one is well written and completely comprehensible. Much better than most others I have. Definitely would recommend this.
