Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Dan's interest in video poker began in 1988 shortly after he moved to Las Vegas. His first endeavor was to survey the casinos and publish a directory of favorable video poker opportunities. Not satisfied with the strategies then available, he put his computer experience to use, analyzed the games, and published his results in the predecessor to this book, Video Poker Precision Play. The book evolved and expanded, going through many revisions as new games began to appear and questions about how to play them arose. Now out of print, the tenth edition was the last version before this book.

Dan retired to Farmington, New Mexico, in 2004, but he and his wife still go to Las Vegas about three times a year to visit with old friends and play video poker. His primary interest is continuing development of his analysis and training software while sharing his knowledge and information with others through his various publications.

If your into the math this book is for you. It gets into how to tell when the progressives are turning a machine or hand positive even temporarily such as when a 4 of Kind can turn the machine positive until it hits. It shows the proper holds and ect. for the most common games. It might be a bit much for a beginner but it will definitely give you a good education. Overall it is a must have in your video poker library.

8 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Wayne Eister on November 18, 2011
My review of this book is extremely favorable. I have read all the top books on video poker during my career as a VP professional and this one stands out. Dan's Precision Play(tm) rules distill the game strategy for the most popular games down to a few text-based rules, completely obviating the need to memorize a list of strategy elements in a specific order. I love the fact that these rules can be used independently of strategy cards or as a reinforcement to other strategy systems and as a learning tool.

One thing that really impressed me was Dan's inclusion of the mathematical basis for VP strategy. Even though one can safely gloss
over the math (it is not necessary to understand the math to be an advantage player), I would not personally believe anything that was told me if it did not include the how and the why. Other books on video poker are lacking, in my opinion, the one indispensable category without which all strategies are useless - "Faith."

Another section which is missing from most gambling books is the discussion of tactics, which is just as important as an accurate strategy is. This a very useful book for beginners and veterans alike.

Better written and user friendly than some other guides that I have read. Worth reading if you like video poker.
