If you regularly play with the likes of Teddy KGB or that dude in the blue eyeglasses in Vegas, then this book isn't for you. But if you're just starting out and want to learn, this is a good source of valuable information.
variations. It's only competition is half of AD Livingston's book
"Poker Strategy" and surfing the internet for "home poker". I
recommend this book so you can have it handy while playing.
The author describes dozens of variations and shows exactly how to
deal each of them; most include a sample hand. There is also advice on
hosting home games. Nearly no tactical or stategic advice is given.
This is for people who like to play poker for nickels, dimes, and
quarters with friends and family. If you want to learn how to win
poker at a casino or online, this is not the right book. If you want
to have a blast of fun at the beach house or kitchen table with a deck
of cards, this book is a must.
It is well written and fun to read.
I have to take issue with him in his derisive description of Texas Hold'em. He derides the game as being uninteresting with not enough wild-card, gimmicks, etc. But as far as the type of poker he's talking about, that is, home players in friendly games, hold'em is certianly not a favorite.
