      hi

      will anyone recommend me good no limit holdem and pot limit omaha high books other than ss2?

      no limit section in ss2 basically can be summed up in one word, "push", and i found it doesnt work like that the hard way

      so any good books?

      for me HoH has learnt me lots about mtt and s&g, but also about cashgames. There is some general info in there about what flops are dangerous, how to play at the start, how to play the endgame (HoH2), which might be usefull in sss. The only thing youll have to think about, is that Harrington operates with a lot of time pressure, so thats a big difference. It can still be useful for cash though, it is very thorough on topics like:

      when to bluff
      how to suck someone in
      etc.

      you need to accumulate chips quite fast, because you can be blinded out, which is impossible in a cashgame. Thereby, if you only play premium hands, youll be shortstacked at some point, because other players are much more aggressive, so while you have made 10chips an hour, other players might win 100chips an hour, and those people normally win tournaments.

      A very good book on NL Hold'em that I liked a lot is "No Limit Hold'em: Theory and Practice" by David Sklansky. It's not cashgame nor tournament oriented.
