PLAY OPTIMAL POKER 2: RANGE CONSTRUCTION

Hi Everyone:

I know there's interest in Andrew Brokos' latest book and have only read a small amount of it so far. But what I have read is very good.

However, he does state "This book will not help you get dealt Aces or flop sets any more often than you already do." which I found disappointing.

Best wishes,
Mason

Where can one find a link to your review of part 1? Thanks in advance.

Also, why no reviews of sites? There are a lot of them out there. Surely they’d allow a credible reviewer like yourself access to give feedback if they believe in their products.

First, I don't have the time and second, this is something where my interest isn't there. Part of the reason I read and review so many books is that I learn from them, and what is there to learn from reviewing poker sites?

Best wishes,
Mason

I was referring to training sites.

Hi Rodion:

That's not going to happen. To do this right I would have to watch a large number of videos and that's some for which I don't have the time.

Best wishes,
Mason

Isn't the Kindle version available?
I'm getting a strange error on Amazon

Sorry about that. Amazon asked me to fix some typos, and I'm waiting for them to confirm that they're fixed.

I don't think I'm allowed to post the link here, but the e-book is still available from my personal site, which is called the Nitcast Store.

Posting the link should be fine.

Appreciate that, Mason.

This will include PDF, Kindle, and EPUB formats. You just have to transfer to your Kindle via USB rather than Amazon doing it automatically via Wi-Fi.

Thank you Andrew,

Just wondering why there is a big price discrepancy between POP 1 and POP 2. Is POP 2 a bigger volume book?

Hi Foucault:

So far, I think this is a better book than Voluke I even though I thought Volume I was outstanding. But I have a question.

ON page 110 where Ivan has checked o the flop you write: "The average amount of money that goes into the pot by the river should be roughly the same whether Ivan bets or checks." Won't this sometimes cause the pot to be overbet since there are now only two rounds of betting and not three?

Best wishes,
Mason

You must be looking at the e-book prices. I lowered the price on the POP 1 e-book to give more people a chance to read it, after it had been out for a while. FWIW I don't plan to do the same with POP 2. It's a somewhat longer book and contains more advanced information.

Thanks Mason, that means a lot coming from you. And yes - in the paragraph before that one, I do mention that Opal has a small overbetting range on most turns.
