9781416903673: Phil Gordon's Little Green Book: Lessons and Teachings in No Limit Texas Hold'em

Phil Gordon plays poker with the best players in the world. He has won-and lost-in tournaments and cash games around the globe, all the while studying the game and learning from every hand dealt. As the resident expert and cohost of "Celebrity Poker Showdown", Phil has quickly become one of the most sought-after teachers of No Limit Texas Hold'em. It's a tough game. But anyone can become a winning player with the right amount of courage, patience, aggression, observation and perhaps most important, dedication to becoming a better player.After fifteen years or keeping notes on the things he's learned, the greats he's played with, and the celebrities he's taught, Phil Gordon has poured every single thin he knows about No Limit Texas Hold'em into this little green book. Taking a page from Harvey Penick's bestselling book of golf wisdom, Phil plays the role of both teacher and student, offering up insightful tips on how to think about poker and how to develop a singular style of play. Through philosophy, psychology, strategy, math and the knowledge gleaned from playing poker with everyone from T.J. Cloutier and Phil Ivey to Hank Azaria and Ben Affleck, Phil breaks down the game into enlightening instructional tidbits and illustrative anecdotes that inspire the kind of persistence and motivation necessary to improve your game.A book to rank with Doyle Brunson's Super System and David Sklansky's The Theory of Poker; Phil Gordon's Little Green Book deserves a spot on the shelf of every serious student of the game.

Review:

"In our minds, this book is an instant classic and a must-have for any serious student of the game. Everyone who reads it will come away a better player."
-- Howard Lederer and Annie Duke

"Phil Gordon is one of poker's premier players and has few peers as a teacher of No Limit Hold'em. I would hate to have to compete with anyone who accesses the information in these pages."
-- Erik Seidel

"Poker: The Real Deal was the best introductory book ever, and this is the perfect 'graduation' book. It provides the key to leaving solid amateur play behind and embracing the first inklings of playing like a true pro. I now feel endowed with that intangible element of strength known as unbridled confidence."
-- James Woods

"Phil Gordon and his Little Green Book made the difference between me losing money and winning money. It made me a winning player."
-- Hank Azaria

"If I cared about poker at all, this would be the book I'd buy."
-- David Foley
