The author of the poker classics Big Deal and Bigger Deal, on how to play Texas hold'em—and win

 

Holden is an experienced poker player who does not pretend to be as expert as the world's top pros; but he can write better than them—and he knows most well enough to milk them for personalized advice, tips, and subtle strategies. This guide offers thorough analyses of the difference between home and casino play, between cash and tournament play, and between internet poker and the real thing against real human beings. Amid definitive charts and tables of odds, probabilities, and other statistics; sample hands; advice on etiquette, and other niceties; there are sections on bluff, tells, and the nuances of "position" and "outs," as well as a brief history of the game and anecdotes about its great players. This entertaining, anecdote-packed, and invaluable companion to the narrative poker classics Big Deal and Bigger Deal may be the first really readable manual in the history of poker.
