4.0 out of 5 stars Nice decorative touch, February 27, 2007
This review is from: Leaves Pushpins (Jewelry)
These push pins are a nice change from the standard types normally used and are especially handy for mounting art work or photos on cork boards.

5.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining and insightful, February 27, 2007
Phil Gordon's blue book follows up on his green book with more detailed hand analysis for both cash and tournament play. He has an entertaining writing style and allows the reader to enter the mind of a professional poker player as he goes thru the decision making process. Gordon's approach is similar to Harrington in that he selects certain games he has played to illustrate a point. He starts with cash games and then discusses tournament play in three parts, beggining, middle and end play. He incorporates game theory, expected value, implied odds, position and psychology to figure out what to do. A must read.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good practice for serious poker player, February 27, 2007
I found the program easy to install and use with clear interfaces for cash or tournament play. The hand evaluator is helpful as are the bots that are used. The bots follow the theories of Sklansky and other experts or can be random. You can view the cards of the other players to gain better insight into betting patterns and strategies.

4.0 out of 5 stars Clear and precise, February 13, 2007
Phil's little green book is a compact and well thought treatise on a variety of strategies - table position, stack size, opening hands, monster hands, bluffing - for the advanced poker player. His discussion of bluffing and monster hands are especially helpful.

2.0 out of 5 stars Basic intro with little to offer, February 13, 2007
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Compared to Harrington's 3 volume opus there is little to learn from Phil Gordon's discussion of final table strategy. The concepts of chip stack size, starting hands in short table play, and heads up play are only given perfunctory analysis.

by Bill Robertie
Edition: Paperback
Price: $24.20
229 used & new from $0.75

5.0 out of 5 stars A must read, February 12, 2007
Harrington's second book on advanced tournament play for no limit holdem tournament play is a remarkable sequel to his first volume. Besides providing important stratagies for end game tournament play, stack size, positional play, short handed table play, opening hands play for heads up play, Harrington gives the reader a series of problems from real play as examples of his theories. A fantastic read.

39 used & new from $0.01

4.0 out of 5 stars Easy intro, February 12, 2007
This is a marvelous book for kids ages 11 and up to get started with the major Greek myths. The stories are written in a style that is easy to comprehend, but with enough detail to the original myth. Highly recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic music to go, February 12, 2007
You can't beat the siza and the weight, not to mention the storage capacity of the 4MB iPod. Ease of use is also wonderful. Only concern is that controls sometimes stick or freeze.
