How to Win at Hold 'Em
Ask any poker player and they will tell you that the key to winning at the poker tables, is information. Information about yourself, information about your opponents, and information about the game. We here at the Casino Snob have just the thing to give you all the information you need to hit the poker tables of your favorite casinos.
Winning Low Limit Hold'em -- A fantasitc book for those who are new to Hold'em. It can give you the basics, and teach you how to be PATIENT! And when you're new to the poker rooms, learning patience is the key to success. If you're a bit more advanced, look elsewhere, but if you're new, THIS is your book.
Caro's Book of Poker Tells -- This book is good for any and all poker games. We have not come across a book that so plainly lays out the most common tells that you are likely to see. Now admittedly, Caro says that they dont always work, but from our experience, they are pretty darn likely to. In our first attempt at low limit hold'em we were able to spot over 25 tells in about 4 hours! And we were able to use about half of them to cash in on big pots. Thank You Mike Caro!
Super System -- What more can we say about "the bible" It is truly the centerpeice of any poker book collection. Now, we love this book. It has everying you need on basic strategies, and techniques. Be warned however, that Texas Hold'em is only one chapter in this book. On the bright side however, you will learn all you need to know about all kinds of poker.
Hold 'Em Poker -- Another excellent beginner to moderate player handbook. Sklansky does a nice job of laying out things like implied odds, pot odds, slowplaying..etc. And we thought it was a light read. It *is* however, slanted for a beginner to moderate player, so if your advanced, you're beyond this book, and if you've never played, it may be a tad difficult.
So there it is, four poker books that we are VERY proud to have in our library, and reccommend to all of you who are itching to test the waters of caisno Hold 'Em. Remember, the more you konw, the better prepared you will be. You can even take some notes with you! Do your research, follow the advice, and the next time you sit at a table, you wont be the fish. Well.. at least not the biggest fish :)
