Re: 2018 NC/LC THREAD - are we ever going to get a title?

I'm going to have the opportunity to play some LHE for a couple of days. I haven't played in years. I used to play 20-40+ regularly. If I was going to read one book to help me get back in the right frame of mind, what would you all recommend.

I've never read that one, so I'll definitely read it. Seems like overkill for donking it up in 20-40 live, though.

Any other suggestions?

To beat live 20-40 hold'em, Small-Stakes Hold'em by Miller, Sklansky, & Malmuth should do the trick.

To get into the right frame of mind for the game, try this:

ETA: If you learn best by videos, try this: https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0059798/

anyway, M.@s0.n claimed that we were in for a poker boom so I am sure its coming just around the corner.

I probably should have worded my request differently, but thanks for the suggestions nonetheless.

I'll read the Newall book and probably will flip through the Stoxtrader book (WITHG) on the plane ride. I assume that the advice in that one is still pretty relevant.

Really? I don't know that I thought it was great, but I thought it had a few good ideas (which is really all I expect from a poker book). I can imagine people not thinking highly of it, but dawg**** is a lot worse an assessment than I would have inspected

Now I feel like I need to read it to figure out why it's so bad. But maybe when I actually get back to playing on a regular basis.

I offered up a far better book. One which i think will provide you much better thought processes than the dumpy stox book. don't waste your time

I thought that Stox book was excellent at the time. Has it lost it's relevance like HFAP? I haven't read it in years.

Yeah, I'm definitely going to follow your rec. Received it a couple of days ago, but haven't cracked it open yet.

This makes more sense to me. Out of curiosity, did you think it was terrible when it came out or is it just that the game has passed it by.

Doing too much learning without solvers is a poor use of time.
