In no particular order:
According to Doyle (now "Poker Wisdom of a Champion", I think). More about life than poker
Biggest Game in Town - I read the serialisation in a paper as a 12 year old
The Making of a Poker Player - Seriously good. The "Jesus problem" is mind-blowing.
Maths of Poker - If I were left with one book, this would be the one I chose, obv.
Play Poker, Quit Work and Sleep Till Noon - mainly for the brags.
HoH 2 - possibly the best poker book ever, in terms of the impact of inflection point theory
Education of a Poker Player - classic stories by a poker playing code breaker
, which did become Poker Wisdom Of A Champion
, is back to the original title. It seems like most of your favorites are more biographical in nature as opposed to playing instructives so I would suggest The Godfather of Poker
and Checkraising The Devil
. The former is Doyle's autobiography while the latter is Mike Matusow's.
My most recent acquisitions, if anyone cares, have been the two Dusy Schmidt books and Elwood's Reading Poker Tells
. This last book is going to have the honor, probably dubious, of being the first book I do a review on. NOT
because the book is dubious but my writing ability is dubious.
All in all, I would say we have many of the same books which is understandable given the volume we both have. Do not let it consume you or your game.
Like the one ring, I fear it has consumed me and my next acquisitions will be Little's books, the other two volumes of WPTOHAAT, and a couple of Miller's most recent offerings.
