      Online material is good but I'd really like to get a physical book to read and improve my game with. Are there any books out there that you would recommend?
      I would prefer it be up to date to include some new metas rather than something like doyle brunsons 20 year old books :f_biggrin:
      I'd also rather it be available locally at something like chapters rather than having to order it online.

      Thanks in advance, hopefully I can get one picked out :s_drink:

      Ace on The River - Barry Greenstein

      It doesn't include much direct poker advice but on the psychology of playing and just as a general read, it is my favourite poker book by a long way.

      I’m not in to poker books, but based that you’re posting hands in our SNG and tournament hand discussion boards I recommend the book Sit 'n Go Strategy of Collin Moshman. For more information you can always check our poker books section.

      Cheers,

      I can advise to read "Polished poker" by John Anhalt. It was a first book I've read and it helped me a lot. Try to read it - I think it can be useful for you. It's free to load but has a paid workbook. That workbook includes different tasks and qusetions so it's a good practice to better understand the material.

      SPAM ALERT above me :f_o:

      On topic: if you want to read a book focusing more on the mental part, try The Mental Game of Poker Vol. 1 and 2 :f_thumbsup:

      Ace on The River - Barry Greenstein <--- Is your best choice, however, I've personally read books but I've found that Youtube videos have helped me improve my game far better than any book has. -----> Pokerstars The Big Game & Aussie Millions - The Cash Game <-- Are both very educational because you see how players play in real time, with lots of money on the line.

      I've heard a lot of people recommend The Mental Game of Poker so I think I will probably pick that up :f_thumbsup:

      I'll definitely think about Collin's SnG strategy book as well since that's the format I'm focused on the most at the moment.

      Barry Greenstein's book also sounds like an awesome read entertainment wise, so many books to choose from!

      Thanks for all of your recommendations :f_biggrin:
