Re: Harringtons cash books -pre order.

are the books going to be on the 2plus2 bonus program as soon as they get released?
If I remember correctly Professional No Limit Holdem by ed miller et al. was too.

Re: Harringtons cash books -pre order.

Probably dumbest question in the thread, but what is the (planned) release date?

March 4th or sooner.
2+2 is under great heat to get these books out.
Should be the stone cold nuts in NL cash play.

Re: Harringtons cash books -pre order.

I hope there is good info on small stakes games and short-handed games in the book. Just glad there is a book on no-limit cash games, much less from Harrington.

The scheduled date is March 4th but that can slip and slide. It probably wont be earlier.

Some of us who've been reading 2+2 books since before the NLHE explosion will remember when their bindings were horrible and pages would fall out after a single reading. Thank god for progress!

I remember Mason posting here many years ago apologizing for this and he offered to replace bad volumes with ones made with the better binding, and he honored this for me and many others and won a customer for life out of me.

That said, I'd happily pay a premium for hardcover but apparently I'm still dreaming...

My question too Mason and Poker Mike will you be offering these volumes as one book at a preorder set price?
When does pre-order begin?

Oh baby ....let the dance begin.
Just wait until some used copies pop up on Amazon. They will be priced lower. The longer you can wait, the lower the prices will get. (probably 6 months will cut the price in half)

if there were a hardcover collection of all 2+2 books, i would shell out some serious dollars.

Geez your pretty desparate for cash if you need to wait six months for the used books.
I dont think I want to sacrifice 6 mo. of +ev or there about.

I got lucky with amazon.ca. Trust me I would order from Poker Mike if I didnt have a canadian source.

I don't think anyone's going to give Dan Harrington **** for his hat once he's brandishing revolvers.

Re: Harringtons cash books -pre order.

Anyone who has read volumes one through three of Harrington on holdem knows that this man is no joke and honestly these 2 new cash games books are worth every penny probably in my mind.

Ok, I really like Dan. He has worked for years with dorky hat and such to conceal his "Dirty Harry" heart. Let's not spoil it for him. Remember, deception is part of the game.
