      Hi!

      I have question what books would you recommended for FL Holdem?

      Allready got The Theory of Poker and Holdem for Advanced Players from Sklansky.

      I would probably go for these books form PokerStars FPP store:
      • Winning in Tough Hold Em Games by Nick "Stoxtrader" Grudzien and Geoff "Zobags" Herzog
      • Advanced Limit Hold'em Strategy by Barry Tanenbaum

      Any other suggestions?

      Hi TTT241,

      the book of stoxtrader is pretty good.

      I don't know the other one and I don't read many books anyway as I'm fine with our context and the handsiscussions. :)

      Small Stakes Holdem by Malmuth, Sklansky and Miller is very a very nice compliment to ps.com. They advocate basically the same style.

      I've been reading a bit of it too, and it almost looks as if a lot of it is stolen from the pokerstrategy articles :D .

      Sorry TTT, no recommendations.

      Nah their book was published earlier than our context and our strategy is basing a bit on their book.

      Or do you say that we copied it? As said some basic stuff is basing on SSH but saying that we copied everything is a lie. (A very rough one!)

      Hehe. Yes I know it was published earlier and was being sarcastic. But I was not trying to say you copied everything. There are just a few things that are very similar and I have absolutely no problem with that as it is good information. And indeed it was the basic stuff.

      The Ps.com preflop strategy is much much better but postflop concepts are very similar.

      Yeah just to be clear I really wasn't that serious about it. But now I feel kinda bad because I feel like I screwed up TTT's post by changing the subject. Sorry TTT, not my intention.

      (So bumping this thread and hope it gets attention for TTT)

      I would recommend "Elements of Poker" by Tommy Angelo. It's less of a strategy book and more of an attitude book, and he touches on some important points like tilt control. That may not sound so exciting, but the book is a worthwile and easy read and is also recommeded by the coaches over at DC.

      The book of Stoxtrader is for Short Handed tables, so if you don't play SH is better take other books. If you play SH (or want to)... is a must reading!

      Well... i don't know what you play, maybe tou want to play 3-6 or 5-10 FR (few, but have this tables in PokerStars), or to play live.

      If you are a SH player... the book of Stoxtrader is much more important than the others. ;)

      That's a beginners book

      not very good imho

      also

      if you haven't read the book by Miller, Sklansky and Malmuth, you should.

      and

      a lot of good SH FL articles are available in teh web ;)
