Hey there,

Welcome to the Forum!

The first book I got hold off was by the great Lou Kreiger who recently passed away. It was called 52 Great Poker Tips and I still bring it with me on journeys and refer to it again and again, great book!

I haven't read many poker books, I learned most of what I know about poker via watching instructional videos, forum hand analysis and through Live Training here at PokerSchoolOnline.

If there is one book that I'd recommend it would be one that I read from front to back several times 'Ace on The River' By Team PokerStars Pro Barry Greenstein.


If you would like to watch instructional poker videos from our archive >>click here<<

I'd suggest that you check out the Live Training, there is an interactive chat box to where you can ask questions to the trainer as well the participants while watching real time poker, it makes for a fun educational time while meeting poker friends >>click here<< for the schedule.


Should you have any questions at all feel free to post a thread in the >>support section<< or private message a >>moderator<<.


Kind regards,
CannonLee

I've read, again and again, The Poker Mindset and it's really helped my game. I do suffer from tilt and this book brings me back to earth when I find myself tilting.

Harrington's books are great, although they are a little bit dated. (Games are much more aggressive these days).

The most useful for me have been:
David Sklanksy's 'The Theory of Poker'
Pawel Nazarewicz's 'Building a Bankroll, full ring edition'
Nathan Williams' e-book 'Crushing the Microstakes'.

I'm in the middle of reading that series right now (3 book series). It's pretty good.

The first book I read was also "52 Great Poker Tips", great to dip into now and then and not to involved.

I've read a couple in between but the one that has helped me understand poker the most is "Harrington On Hold'em", it probably is a bit dated for todays kind of play but its a great foundation for building on, I highly recommend it.

Anyone read "The Raisers Edge"? Think I might check that out next.

Don't forget Collin Moshman if you play STTs! His book Sit'n Go Strategy had a big impact on my game! Harrington taught me how to be tight and Moshman taught me how to be aggressive.

Cheers Roland,

Will definitely be buying Moshmans book when I've finished Harrington, the reviews online are nothing but awesome!

I'm reading Pawel Nazarewicz's 'Building a Bankroll, full ring edition', and this has helped me more than any other book so far. I have also read David Sklanky's 'The Theory of Poker', though I found this a bit hard to grasp in places. Don't get me wrong, I think it's a great book, but I guess not every reader will be suited to the same material. Lastly, I've also read Phil Gordon's 'Little Green Book', and this was the first title I studied. Another decent work. I'll bet that I'd glean more from it if I were to read it again.
