A friend of mine is an excellent High/Low player. He told me, "High/Low split is less forgiving to marginal play than either straight high or Razz." That is true and that what this book is about. Rock solid play backed up by hard statistics. On page 10 and 11 are two statistical tables that changed me from a marginal player to a solid winner. This table will tell you what your percentages are to complete an eight low, a seven low, or a six low if you start with three low cards and get paired on fourth street. This table will tell you your chances of making a low if you get double paired on fifth street. This table is great information that is worth many times the modest cost of this book.

(From the Introduction) This book is about basic poker. I believe that until we have a foundation in the rudiments of the game, we should try very little fancy stuff. We should know exactly what to do with each and every starting hand when we get the fourth card, the fifth card, etc. I don't mean approximately, I mean exactly. When we know how to play the basic hands, then we can add variations to our play. When our play reaches the point that we become predictable, then vary our play by 15 to 20% Plan to eventually play a particular hand a certain way 80 to 85% of the time. First, learn the basic, slid way to play, then add the flavor, the variations. Every rule has a lot of exceptions at the poker table. I am saying learn the best way first. Then mix in the deviations to confuse the opposition. Trust me, you will have them shaking their heads in confusion.
