Review

This book typifies the precise insight most players have sought for years. I have recommended Harrington in the past and will continue, however I have found a "new favorite poker book" and gladly will promote its purchase to members at PokerSchoolOnline (the largest online poker school). --Al Spath - Dean, PokerSchoolOnline

I was in the process of reading another poker book when this one arrived in today's mail. A quick glance made it clear that "One Hand at a Time" should be read first.

The book is organized in four sections, one written by each of the three authors and a fourth in which each gives his analysis of a hand that had been played by Matthew Hilger. I think this organization is great in that it lets the reader vicariously enter the mind of each player and experience thinking about hands with the style of that player, then the different playing styles are brought into (sometimes) stark contrast in the final section where each of the three gives his take on a Hilger hand.

It is tempting to compare this book with Gus Hansen's recent book, the "Hand by Hand" books of Neil Myers, Johnny Chan's (with Mark Karowe) account of the playing of various hands, or others of the same type. I have read several books of hand descriptions and have learned from them all.

However, "One Hand at a Time" stands out because of the collaboration, and the organization. Each hand description is organized in sections titled:
..Setup - giving the tourney type, buyin, info on other players, etc.
..Pre-Flop - Describes the preflop action and thinking.
..Flop - Describes the flop action and thinking.
..Turn - Describes the turn action and thinking.
..River - Describes the river action and thinking.
..Outcome - Describes in a single sentence the outcome of the hand.
....Actually this section does not exist -- BUT IT SHOULD!!!!

Immediately following the title of each hand section the pot size is given, making it much easier to follow the action than many books of this type in which you have to keep track of the pot size yourself.

I just finished this book up last week...first thought is what an easy read. The book really moves through and organizes everything well.

Rizen and Pearljammer are a good contrast since Rizen is a looser player while Pearljammer seemingly makes some impossible laydowns. The best part of this book is that it goes through the thought processes that true pros go through during a hand. It really helps you out when you're thinking through a hand in a tournament.

I thoroughly enjoyed the organization of the breakdown on the thought processes. It shows you what they were thinking during the setup, pre-flop, flop, turn, and river individually. It also updates the pot size accordingly, which most books I have read in the past do not.

"One hand at a Time" was a great read, very informative, and actually has improved my tournament play already. I would highly recommend adding it to your collection as soon as possible.

Format: Paperback
This is a good book. I guess it reaches a market of poker players who are not watching online training videos - because this really is just a written text version.

The three authors each explain their thinking pre-flop/ post-flop/ turn/ river, for real hands they played online (194 in total).

Essentially, the book is a demonstration in ABC poker - including continuation betting, the odd bit of stealing, and way less bluffing than most poker players think must be used.

This book would introduce a number of new concepts to less experienced players (like reads, puting your opposition on a range, playing the player, considering stack sizes/tourney stage, table image, etc..)

For me it was re-inforement of good solid poker play.

Each hand is laid-out well with logical explaination of their actions on each street - and also includes the result (which does not always go in favour of the hero).

Note that this book only covers hands up to near the bubble of a MTT. A planned 2nd issue will cover hands played during the money to final table stages of a MTT.

Any online player is familiar with these 3 great players & has probably already ordered this excellent book. It is chock full of the thought processes that are used in almost all situations that might arrive in a poker tournament. You aren't just presented with theories and hand charts, but with the real "nuts and bolts" of how to think through the situations that most often occur and are puzzling to even advanced players. John "PearlJammer" Turner's section is the best part of this book, but you will learn plenty from all the authors.
If you are a brick and mortar player make sure you buy this book.
This is Required Reading & should be a part of any Poker Library.

Great book and one of a handful that go a long way in describing a winning players thought process, however, there is a huge draw back.

Simply, 99% of the hands mentioned are from buy-ins averaging $100. You take this information (which is fantastic) and use it in your $11.00 tourneys or Sunday qaulifiers and it simply can't work. It doesn't work for teh same reason Doyle's "super system" doesn't work for the vast majority of us. Doyles talks about shoving on draws and giving opponents tough decisions for 25k to make the call. You take that advise and shove your $50 in on a draw and your getting called by top pair-period! And that is teh problem here. The opponents that are referenced in this book are, to somewhat degree, thinking players which are able to lay down hands, those at the £11 buy-in don't. I'm hoping the 2nd volume will be more applicable to my buy-in level as when "in the money", generally (but not always) most of the fish are gone and you are left with thinking players that you can play some poker with.
Don't get me wrong, I love this book, it's just it's targeted at a larger buy-in, better player. Any yes I know that donks play at all levels but generally speaking the higher the buy-in the better qaulity of opponent.
