1.0 out of 5 stars A disappointment September 26, 2004
Howard Lederer is certainly one of the top poker players in the world and I have followed his incredible play on TV as have many poker fans. His nickname at the table is "The Professor" so I was certainly expecting to hear some pearls of wisdom from this legend of poker.

To say I was disappointed was an understatement. The entire DVD looks like a home movie filmed on an old camcorder. Clearly The Professor did not want to invest heavily in this project. He began the DVD with the assumption that viewers already knew how to play Hold'em which really seems odd given that only a complete beginner would learn much from this DVD.

The DVD begins with a tedious explanation of how one might play a tournament at home. This explanation included instructions on how to set a kitchen timer so you know when to increase the blinds. He even personally demonstrated how to tape two playing cards together to hide the card at the bottom of the deck. I am not kidding, I got to watch one of the best poker players in the world apply four pieces of sticky tape to two jokers, while explaining his actions. During the rest of the video he kept referring to several information tables that were supposed to be included with the DVD, they were not.

A high profile player like this should have been able to produce a more interesting and informative DVD, but frankly it seems like Howard just wanted to cash in on his name and the current popularity of the game. I just wish he had done this the right way by producing a product worthy of his name.

Weirdly this review vanished so I have reposted it.

2.0 out of 5 stars Elements not secrets of no limit hold'em December 23, 2004
For me personally, this DVD was a disappointment. I purchased it, watched it once and then resold it on E-Bay to get my money back.

The use of the word secrets in the title is clearly a marketing ploy. There are no secrets to be learned here! The DVD contains nothing but the most basic elements of how to play no limit hold'em.

A large section of the DVD is also wasted with a lengthy and, in my opinion, irrelevant tutorial on how to run your own no limit hold'em tournaments at home.

More substantive strategic game information in place of this filler material would have been greatly appreciated.

I can only recommend this DVD for the rank beginner with no or very little knowledge of the game - especially the type of person who has just recently discovered poker as a result of the current poker boom on television and the Internet.

Long-time cash game and tournament poker players will not learn anything in the least bit secretive here!

4.0 out of 5 stars Learn the fundamentals (review from sweetfreerolls.com) November 2, 2004
This DVD is the first volume in the Howard Lederer DVD series. Most people looking at this site are probably familiar with Lederer, one of the best professional poker players in the world and a regular on TV via both the World Poker Tour and the World Series of Poker. His nickname among poker fans is The Professor, so it's fitting that in his series of DVDs he is attempting to teach you the principles that will take you from a beginner to an intermediate or good player.

This video is just under an hour and a half long and primarily covers the fundamental elements of being a tight, aggressive player with a few general tips sprinkled in. The biggest areas of focus for the video are pre-flop strategy, how to set up a home tournament, draws and odds plus a few tells and Lederer throws out some ideas about reading the board and your opponent.

I imagine some people will be happier with the presentation aspects of the video than others. This was a rather low budget affair, and most of the video is just Lederer alone sitting at a poker table talking to the camera. This did not bother me, and in fact I found a few things to like about it.

Unlike the horrible "Poker for Dummies" starring Chris Moneymaker, it was obvious that Lederer is not reading cue cards or working from anything but the most basic of scripts. While at first glance that may seem like a bad thing, in real life application it is not at all. Where Moneymaker sounded phony and looked uncomfortable, Lederer looks really comfortable and is a very articulate and likable guy. (I'm not saying that Moneymaker is a bad guy, but since he doesn't get to be himself in the video it just sucks.) In fact, after watching these DVDs I am a big Lederer fan.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not too bad February 14, 2005
This DVD is helpful for beginning players, but is too tight and predictable to be used by itself. I would also recommend reading a book on Hold 'Em from Sklansky's library or playing hands on a free money poker site before viewing this video. It's for beginners, but not for those with no experience at all. Some things are done very well, but others are pointless fillers. Worth checking out for cheap, but don't put all your chips in on this one.

1.0 out of 5 stars Secrets of how to make a crappy poker video December 29, 2004
By Dave M
Howard Lederer borrowed a 1994 model camera to make this video and shot in his basement with no budget, no lighting, and no script. I'm thinking about making my own poker video, it apparently isn't hard.

Howard Lederer may be a world class poker player, but he is as boring as a dial tone. 90% of what you learn in this video you learn in the intro to Texas Hold 'Em you see in the WSOP intro or the WPT into to the game. I'm incredibly glad I didn't buy this DVD. My friend wasted money on this video. If you're smart, you won't waste your money either.
