      Hey guys,
      I'm thinking of getting some books to read about poker.
      Currently i'm looking at:
      Doyle Brunson - Super System
      David Sklansky - The Theory of Poker
      David Sklansky - No Limit Hold 'Em Theory and Practice
      Bill Chen - The Mathematics of Poker

      Does anyone have any suggestions/recommendations? I currently play SnGs online but I don't necessarily want books tailored to SnGs. I was also thinking about gettin Dan Harrington's books on tournament poker or cash games.

      Those will help you the most don't you think?

      the poker mindset
      Sit & Go Strategy by Collin Moshman
      Dan harrington on holdem 1-3
      kill phil
      kill everyone


      Were recommended alot to me. I'm currently reading Moshman's book and it's pretty good so far.

      I can recommend Harrington's Cash games, Im reading them now they are very good.

      Also a good read but less "educational" is Gus Hasen's Every hand revealed.

      Yeah, it could be.. thats why i'm hesitant about buying it. Doyle is still a nuts good player though so I dunno.

      Super System is worthless for Hold'em. I only keep mine around for referencing all the other varients that it covers. No Limit Hold'em is also seriously out-dated and there are tons of other books you could read instead.

      Like mentioned by Hahaowned you are ignoring e-books which is where most of the good poker advice is written these days.

      Cool, thanks for responses guys.
      I think i'll get:
      SnG Strategy
      The Poker Mindset
      Mathematics of Poker
      and then maybe some Dan Harrington on Hold'Em books.
      Probably Theory of Poker too, just because its cool to have an old school book to reference :P
