9780486246260: Win at Poker

Poker is a game of percentages, and in the long run every player gets his fair share of good cards — but some players win more consistently than others, and in this fascinating book card expert Jeff Rubens tells you why.
Win at Poker assumes no previous poker knowledge. It starts out with fundamentals — the rank of hands, the mechanics of betting — and moves step-by-step to topics of greater complexity: how to play draw and stud poker; variations on these games and why they were created; how to play seven-card stud, high-low, spit in the ocean, anaconda, etc.; and most important of all, how to adapt yourself to any poker situation.
Dozens of sample hands and brief quizzes simulate actual poker practice and sharpen your ability to formulate winning betting strategies. A full discussion of money management (i.e. betting) techniques enables you to distinguish favorable bets from unfavorable ones. In the long run, you can't do worse than break even at poker if you follow the guidelines set out for you here.
Other exciting features of this book include: insights into poker ethics and etiquette; sidelights on poker history and traditions; a special Appendix outlining "The Modern Laws of Poker," and an immensely useful Glossary and Index. This handy feature contains all the poker terms, both slang and technical, you need to know — ante, bicycle, case card, sandbag, showdown, and many more.
This book does more than teach you how to play poker — it teaches you how to play winning poker. If you're a novice seeking a clear practical guide to the fundamentals, you'll find Win atPoker invaluable. If you're an experienced player looking for expert advice on how to increase your winning percentage, you'll gain new insights and improve your play.
