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.
