9780060005726: Play Poker Like the Pros

In Play Poker Like the Pros, poker master Phil Hellmuth, Jr., demonstrates exactly how to play and win -- even if you have never picked up a deck of cards -- the modern games of poker, including: Texas Hold'em, Omaha, Seven-Card Stud, and Razz.

Phil Hellmuth, Jr., a seven-time World Champion of Poker, presents his tournament-tested strategies to beat any type of player, including:

  • The Jackal (crazy and unpredictable)
  • The Elephant (plays too many hands)
  • The Mouse (plays very conservatively)
  • The Lion (skilled and tough to beat)

Play Poker Like the Pros begins by laying out the rules and set-up of each game and then moves on to easy-to-follow basic and advanced strategies. Hellmuth teaches exactly which hands to play, when to bluff, when to raise, and when to fold. In addition Hellmuth provides techniques for reading other players and staying cool under pressure. There are also special chapters on how to beat online poker games and an inside look at tournament play.

About the Author:

Phil Hellmuth, Jr. is a ten-time World Series of Poker Champion and all-time leading money winner at the World Series of Poker. In addition to appearances on the Discovery Channel, E!, ESPN, and Fox Sports Net, he has been featured in Sports Illustrated, Time, and Esquire. Phil also contributes to Gambling Times Magazine and writes for many poker websites. He lives with his family in Palo Alto, California.

From AudioFile:

Champion Phil Hellmuth gets listeners into the nitty-gritty of hands played and bets wagered. Helmuth labels players as animals--from mouse (conservative) to jackal (aggressive). The popular Texas Hold 'Em is one of several games discussed. If you've never played poker, the presentation can be overwhelming, with many cards to recall from examples. Further, Helmuth begins each section with the words "Let's talk about ...," which becomes repetitive. A glossary of hands would be more useful. And more discussion is needed on spotting body language for the purpose of reading other players. Nonetheless, if you've played a few home games, deal yourself in and learn from Helmuth, a master of the well-timed wager. M.B. AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine-- Copyright AudioFile, Portland, Maine
