About the Author
Starting with Monopoly at age 6, William Jockusch never saw a game he didn t like. Since then, he has become addicted to risk, chess, Dungeons and Dragons, wargames, various computer games, bridge, Magic: The Gathering, and, most recently, poker, while somehow finding time between his games to earn a PhD in math from MIT. These addictions have spawned many friendships and two careers to date. One is his poker career, which in turn spawned this book.
In addition to his passion for poker, William s interest in games also gave him a passion for game design. For seven years, William worked for Wizards of the Coast, where he helped create and improve new cards for Magic: The Gathering, a card game created by fellow mathematician Richard Garfield.
Applying his game design skills to poker, William created Underpoker, a variant deck which can be used for common forms of poker such as Omaha and hold em.
William has two children with his wonderful wife, Maria. He lives in the Seattle area.

i've been playing PLO for over a year now and am a consistent winner at it. i've read all of hwangs books and it's given me a huge edge over most of the live players, not all, but most.
get this book if you're new to PLO. i don't think it'll make you a consistent winner at the game, but it'll help build some basics.
it is well written in terms of making it easy for the readers to read and understand whats going on in a hand.
A number of things really bothered me about Jockusch's book. First, he (correctly) points out that short stackers can have a devastating effect on the game, and even throws in two suggestions at the end of the book (one of which is ridiculous) on how to effectively kill off short stacking. He then proceeds to describe how to play a short stack throughout most of the book, and numerous times he mentions that he's primarily a short stacker. What?!
Secondly, in a game as action driven as PLO, Jockusch has written a book advocating and explaining what could best be described as the nittiest possible way you could imagine to play PLO. This book may help you become profitable at PLO if you aren't already, but it will also make you want to gouge your eyes out.
Third, the layout in the book makes no sense. There are very few hand examples compared to not only Jeff Hwang's books, but 2+2 books in general; not only that, but the vast majority are held to the end of the book and lumped into one chapter, making one have to constantly go back and forth between chapters while reading if one wants to get anything out of the topic at hand.
I could go on, but I think by now you should be heading in the opposite direction from this book. Buy it for the people you regularly play PLO with - *that* will make you more profitable. ;p
