Go straight to SSHE unless you know absolutely nothing about Hold 'Em.

SSHE is great, but it actually says it is not for beginners. While I don't think someone would need to be advanced to handle it, I'm really not sure it would work as a first book on holdem for a true beginner.

For a real newbie, I like Miller's "Getting Started In Holdem" (hope I'm remembering title correctly). I don't remember Jones' book that well but I thought it wasn't bad.

If I was to make my previous post better, it would say what chillrob's said. I should've mentioned GSIH.

Reservations. Hahahahahaha.........

We went to the Hyatt Regency buffet in Scottsdale which we won't be doing again. We noticed - and were wondering why - there were so many fewer diners than last year. I assume it's bec they raised the price from $79 to $89 and that must've done it. I mean it's nice and all but not $89 nice. Plus they bring the bill and there's a line for 'tip', ofc, but I ask if the tip's already included which it was for 18% which, ok, the wait staff has to make a living but, come on, all they do is bring drinks and clear the plates. The waiter said 'it's there in case you want to add more.' lololol........more than $16@ to clear plates, jfc. BUT.....

I hope you've all had a nice Thanksgiving!

My original post was "Howard, where did you take mom for dinner?" but I wanted to give you the benefit of the doubt even though I knew better.

Good TR. Next time I'm in Scottsdale for Thanksgiving I will be sure to pass.

I really, really went off my diet. It'll take a few days just to get rid of what the plate full of cake, pie and w/e those custard filled things are called, nm the pasta, quesadilla, mac & cheese, crab legs, shrimp, mussels, and, oh yeah, a bit of turkey and a slab of prime rib. And mashed potato. nom nom nom!

I hate turkey. I had one slice drenched in gravy, and then loaded up my plate with sides. Had a bunch of appetizers beforehand too.

My Thanksgiving was depressing. Canceled on my mom's side, the one with the good food, because of my very sick, very beloved aunt. Second, gym was closed. Third, I have to work. Poop day all around.
