Re: BobboFitos book?

The book is good and I have read a few similar books so I am comparing to those. I have also been getting coaching from Bobbo and the two go together nicely and have more than paid for themselves.

There is supposed to be an updated version of the book coming to address the biggest shortcomings which are the editing and presentation which needs some work although the actual content is already very good. The update was due around now but not sure if that is still on schedule, perhaps Rob can comment on this if there is an update coming soon.

Yep if you 4bet that big people will always put you on AK so maybe I should try it with AA/KK sometime.

Why not use the private forum on Leggo if you bought the book?

Re: BobboFitos book?

Some of us bought the book long before leggo ever existed and never got around to getting access ... But I'm guessing we are very few

If you bought the book and never bothered to PM Bobbo for forum access, you are doing yourself a disservice. The forum is free for you and it's good.

true but even $100 70s bucks is of the same order of magnitude as this book at $750. Not sure the amount of content is comparable though as supersystem is a very thick book.

Just did the calculation and $100 in 1970 is now worth $330 today.

I think there is something else to be aware of though. What is the opportunity to profit? In the 1970s you were not necessarily going to print money from supersystem due to the infrequency and inaccessibility of games. Internet poker is definitely a larger opportunity.

I thought Bobbo's Bible was supposed to be done being edited by December 2009?

The figure he's quoting is actually pretty accurate for the year the book was published (1979), and incorrect for 1970.
