About the Author
Since 1994, she has dominated poker, quickly establishing herself as one of the world's best players. In her very first tournament at the World Series of Poker, she placed 13th.
In 2004, she won her first WSOP bracelet (in the $2,000-buy-in Omaha Hi/Lo Split). That same year, she knocked out nine poker legends to win the no-limit Texas hold 'em invitation-only WSOP Tournament of Champions.
In 2010, Annie won the prestigious NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship, beating 64 of the world's top players on her way to a $500,000 first prize.
Annie parlayed her skills into an industry-leading career that encompasses tournament play, advising gaming companies, authoring instructional books and videos, and as a proponent of players' rights. A longtime industry advocate, Annie has testified in front of the U.S. House of Representatives' Judiciary Committee on online poker legislation and the U.S. House of Representatives' Financial Services Committee; she continues to be a leading voice for online gaming.
Annie has also become a prominent television personality, and is recognized worldwide for her runner-up finish on Donald Trump's "Celebrity Apprentice." Today, she is League Commissioner of Federated Sports + Gaming. She's also an instructor at the World Series of Poker Academy.
John Vorhaus has written more than two million words on poker, including the Killer Poker book series and the poker novel Under the Gun. He has also penned the "sunshine noir" mystery novels The California Roll and The Albuquerque Turkey, as well as dozens of television and film scripts. He travels the world teaching and training writers--26 countries on four continents at last count.
"As a poker player," says John, "I'm a pretty good writer."

I came away with a much bigger perspective on the game and I am going to be a better player thanks to this book. All on its own, the large portion of the book dedicated solely to playing top pair made me feel like I got my money's worth. The attitudes and logic on hole card selection were also very beneficial to someone at my skill level, which is above beginner but still too short of confidence to go for the $20-$40 blinds table on my income.
There are no secrets on opponents tells (but there are recommendations on that literature) and I wonder if some of the tactics may be a bit dated since the book is nearing 6yrs in print. Even if they are, I feel like several of my fundamentals are stronger and I am much harder to push around than I was a few months ago.
If you're rocking $20-$40 tables, maybe you won't need this as much. On the other hand, if you're playing $20-$40 tables... I can't see how this would be bad to buy for less than one big blind.
