Greatest Poker Books

This whole poker book idea got me all worked up.  I looked through my library and found a few must have poker books for the beginning.  But since I no longer consider myself the beginner, but more of an intermediate (at least !) level, I thought it would be helpful to find some books that explore other aspects of poker player’s life.  And because I still believe that a good old fashioned book, that you can hold in your hand and flip through and shit, is much better then any of those digital versions, I have put up some links.  Just click on the cover image if you want to buy one.  I will also have a running (and hopefully updated) list running on my Poker Page.  Check it out.

Poker book review: Super System

I wanted to take some time and discuss poker’s greatest textbook, the “Bible” of poker books: Doyle Brunson’s “Super System”. This book was not the first poker publication, but it is the most influential.  Doyle Brunson collaborated with some of the best poker players in the world, and produced a seven part book covering the most popular variations of the game.  Doyle himself wrote the section on the No Limit (NL) Hold’em.   “Crazy Mike” Caro, the same guy that authored the “Caro’s Book of Poker Tells” (another must have for a serious poker player) wrote the section on Five Card Draw Poker.  Obviously, he is the best at reading people, so the game with no cards exposed makes him the expert.  The section on Limit Hold’em was written by Bobby “The Owl” Baldwin, a 1978 World Poker Champion and a 2003 inductee into the Poker Hall of Fame. David “Einstein” Sklansky, who is considered to be one of the top poker theorists, put together the section on High-Low Split and High-Low Declare. The section on Lowball was written by Joey Hawthorne.  Nicknamed “Howard Hughes”, he is well known in the top poker games both as a player and as an author and theorist.  Chip Reese, another legend of the poker world wrote the section on Seven Card Stud.   Click on the cover image to buy this great poker book on Amazon.

 

Awesome music: Alt-J – Tessellate

So I put up the YouTube video of Alt-J‘s Breezeblocks a few hours ago, (here is the link if you missed it), and of course I started listening to some of their other stuff.  Their 2012 album “An Awesome Wave” is excellent.  The song “Breezeblocks” that got me hooked originally, and the “Tessellate” sold me completely.  But these are not the only two good tracks on that CD, they have a bunch of very good songs on that album: “Something Good”, “Fitzpleasure”, “Bloodflood” and “Taro” now in my Best of the Best playlist, in addition to the earlier mentioned “Tessellate” (my favorite) and “Breezeblocks”.

(Here is the link to their debut album “An Awesome Wave”)

And here is the official music video for my favorite track: “Tessellate”.

FREE Amazon Music Trial

You heard it right, its free.  And you know how much I love free stuff.  I used to pirate my stuff, but now I find it a lot easier to have a streaming service that has literally anything on a moments notice.  The 21st century really broke through the entertainment industry.  The availability of on demand content, first to your home cable box, and now to any hand held device that is connected to the internet, really eliminated the need to download and store gigabytes of mp3s.  Nowadays, you just click a button, say “OK Google, play me … “, and the music starts.  What more do you want?  Ohh yeah, you want it for free too.  But you can afford internet, what’s another couple of bucks a month.  Anyway, I’m not asking you to reach for your wallet right now.  Try it for a month, see what you think.  If you think it’s worth it, keep it, if not, no harm done.  Click on the link below, and if they ask who referred you, say Konstantin sent me.  They know me well.
