Book Announcement: Hold 'em Poker for Advanced Players -- 2023 Edition Book Announcement: Hold 'em Poker for Advanced Players -- 2023 Edition

Hi Everyone:

Our book Hold 'em Poker for Advanced Players -- 21st Century Edition, which is on limit hold 'em, has been rewritten and expanded. The new version will be titled Hold 'em Poker for Advanced Players -- 2023 Edition. Even though the writing of the book is finished, it'll still be two to three months before the 2023 Edition is available, and when that happens, I'll post a link to the Amazon page.

However, I'm posting this now because Amazon is still selling the 21st Century Edition and if you're interested in purchasing this book, we feel that it's probably best to wait until the 2023 Edition is available.
