Well, I took notes and watched the videos 2-3 times. That's how I got to absorb them.

I agree. I bought the videos and found it quite hard to follow.

Would buying the book help supplement the videos?

Re: Please do not tell anyone this..

Just found the link for more info, it has a $750 price tag so you have to be serious. That said I've heard nothing but amazing things about it from everyone who has read it. Its still far out of my price range though.

The original price of Supersystem, in inflation-adjusted dollars, was $297.98.

Less than half the price of this book, and written by Doyle Brunson. I'm not sure the comparison stands.

Edit: Not that I'm arguing that the book is not worth the money, everyone who paid for it seems to feel it was worth their money. Simply stating that I do not make enough money playing poker (in fact I haven't made any) to justify a purchase for myself. :P

The videos are a bit much all at once, but very insightful and definitely worth watching over again.

Re: Please do not tell anyone this..

His viewpoints on 4 betting seem a bit outdated.

Example: 100 bb's 1-2NL:

you make it 6, opponent 3 bets it 24, he uses 4 betting to 75 and explains
you really cant fold to a shove with most hands......Most people now 4 bet
to 50, and dont price themselves in.

Re: BobboFitos book?

Bobbo charges $350/hr for coaching.
http://www.leggopoker.com/coaches/BobboFitos/

but aejones charges $1,500/hour.
http://www.leggopoker.com/coaches/aejones/
I wonder if he'd agree to $1,400/hour if you offered it to him?

Get those DVDs and you can save the money on the book. The difference is too marginal to spend that much money on it.

Almost all of these ebooks are for people playing NL400+. The target audience can afford the investment and is not as likely to go seeking bootlegs.

The book is the nuts. I'm an SSNL player and it is great. I've read most of the other ebooks and bobbo's is more mathematical and optimal-focused than the others.

It is definitely worth $750. This 'bible' gives a thorough rundown of poker from A-Z and will have you beating at least 100NL just from reading it.

Anyone who read it will agree.
