This system worked well back in the 1970s, and probably the 1980s and 1990s, but once Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker and so many people flooded the poker market, it led to a great deal of passion for the game, and those who were most passionate educated themselves as much as possible -- including Super System.
This altered the game, and the aggressive style Doyle used to implement won't be as effective because there are now many counter-strategies. If you have watched Doyle play over the past decade, you can see that even he doesn't apply the Super System he created, simply because the game has changed.
All that said, it's a highly recommended read for any poker player because it will create a strong fundamental base of knowledge. The first section about Doyle and his road to poker can also be inspirational. Just be sure you're ready to fully commit to the game. Otherwise, it will be an expensive hobby.
You do have more than just NLH in here, so if you are not familiar with some other game, this is a very good jumping off point. I just wouldnt pick this up as my ONLY book, not anymore. If you want improvement, this will still help, but, if you are already banging heads against players in higher buy-in tourneys, its value is more of bits n pieces you can still add to your repotoire , and pull out when the play looks right. I have about a dozen NLH books, last was written only 2 yrs ago, and author said IT might be out of date by about NOW... i would hold ON to this book ( and will ) , as things go in cycles, and 10 yrs DOWN the road, this might be just what you want to re-read.
I have to say, despite all the flash and flair exuded by today's hip players, if there was only one pro I could meet, it would definitely have to be Doyle Brunson. I admire his story and also treasure the advice he issues on tactics and strategy.
I'm sorry that Doyle had to change his style due to the publication of Super System, but I am very grateful that he wrote the book. Studying his suggestions have helped me become a more aggressive and stronger player. I was a rock for too long. I think that you'll continuously be saying to yourself as you peruse it, "Yes, yes, that'll work." It really will.
Overall, even if you're not interested in draw, stud, lowball, or high-low split, Doyle's autobiographical essay, and his general poker strategy are must reads. This volume retailed for 100 bucks twenty-six years ago, and, for less than 20 dollars a copy, it's a steal.
I'ts like an encyclopedia of poker strategy. Enjoy!
