PNLHE vol 1 and SSNLH are amazing. SSNLH is very applicable to the live environment. Some of the best post flop and profiling advice I have read in a book.

Re: Recommended Reading List

for mental game

the poker mindset --- this book will prob save you so much $$ its just a must for any player who takes the game seriously live or online 5/5

your worst poker enemy-- also a great read about the mental side 4/5

elements of poker-- to be honest this book did not really enlighten me as much as mindset or worst poker enemy. but stilll an ok book 3/5

Re: Recommended Reading List

i ddint like poker mindset too much, but mayeb ill give it another chance. I wish tommy angelos book wasnt formatted that way, but i heard hes coming out with another book, hopefully it isnt just a bunch of lil anecdotes.

the book that i felt helped me out a lot recently was easy game, PM me for details . but the book i read the most without a doubt was sklanskys NL theory and practice.

Re: Recommended Reading List

Anyone read "The Mental Game of Poker" by Jared Tendler?

I'm considering buying it, any comments on it appreciated.

It's ~$50 on Amazon.com, has 12 5-star reviews but the reviewers histories show they only reviewed that 1 book only-so was wondering if they were just friends of his putting up good reviews

Yes, but you can get a free trial at DC. When it comes to live cash postflop analysis theres Bart Hanson and everybody else. His podcast is going to be like $7 month, but well worth it imo.

Just commenting on the reviews, none of them are personal friends. Some (I won't mention who) are clients, a few others (JadeLane for example) I gave a free copy, and there are several others who I have no idea who they are. I'm sure that at a minimum they are all people who are enthusiastic about my work. The one thing I've always asked is for fair reviews based on their honest opinions. That's ultimately in my best interest, because they'll defend their position if questioned. Also, if you google the book, there are several reviews in the media as well that share the sentiment of the Amazon ones.

Happy to answer any questions via PM or in my commercial marketplace thread - I don't want to derail the thread.

I went back and listened to the Limon episode of Deuce Plays. Thanks for recommending it.

I've been a fan of Bart's podcasts for a long time but that one came out when I took a hiatus for a while.

Re: Recommended Reading List

Anyone read "Play Poker, Quit Work and Sleep till Noon!" and would like to have a discussion with it?

I have tried reading it several times, but find myself losing focus trying to separate his points relating to poker in general and others relating to the draw game, which is the main focus of the book.

Re: Recommended Reading List

Just finished "Small Stakes NLHE" by Ed Miller. Very good. It's targeted toward online 6-max play but can be applied to all low stakes NLHE. I would recommend this to all serious low stakes players.

Re: Recommended Reading List

Pretty much agree with AINTNOLIMIT
The Poker E-books teach you more how to think about poker and the thought process behind poker decisions.
Easy Game Vol 1 & 2 are excellent.

For Online players transitioning to Live I highly suggest reading
Jared Tendler's The Mental Game of Poker
It will help you deal with the ups and downs you'll experience in Live play for bigger stakes and a slower pace than online. It also provides good advice on how not to be mentally strong in life outside of poker

Which one specific?

They're all informational, but unless you're always on the look out for usage of these tells, they often fade from the memory.

Re: Recommended Reading List

I read all the posts, but tbh,none of the books mentioned, actually deal with live poker (excluding maybe a chapter here and there).

This would actually seem a gap in the market. the only book I know of that specifically talks about live play is "Mastering low stakes NLHE poker cash games", by Nathan Schwiethale, but this book is for beginners and some of the content I found questionable.

Books will help w the theoretical stuff, but the content in this forum is invaluable.

The one book that does is out of print and rather expensive.

I mostly play in home games now, but I don't see the difference between online and live poker. The aggression is toned down a bit (that correlates with bet sizing?), but it's all the same game just a different medium. I read a lot of poker books that were written with online play in mind, but the information there can be used in the general game of poker, not just through the medium of online.

During the week I try to *grunch* five threads a day, I agree with your view on the valuable information found here, but please elaborate on how the two venues, online poker and live poker, need different materials.

Because human beings tend to fall into patterns. If you are used to full ring online, full ring live will seem like a totally different game. (Used to winning at it rather). Tendencies are completely different unless playing 10-25cent, and thus the game flows much differently.

This is due mainly to the fact that online you are playing players ranging from 16years to 26yrs mostly, and live you are playing Joe (used car guy), Sally (School teacher), Bob (banker), and 2 other dealers on break. (all ranging from 25yrs to 70yrs. Apples and oranges.

There is a well of information here on 2p2 on beating micros online.
Another great link: https://forumserver.twoplustwo.com/sh...82&postcount=4

There is a huge similarity between crushing micros and low stakes live cash, almost identical robotic play.
But as you move up stakes live & online they become wider and wider apart, completely different animals in fact.

Do a search of live vs online, it has been covered many times over.
