Great middle limit book!

If your game is 9-18, 20-40, 30-60, or even 40-80, the strategies and perspective in this book will help your game. Mason claims that Ciaffone is a little too weak-tight, and I also agree based on my own middle and high-limit play. Having said that, the process by which this book takes the reader through thinking about each hand and each situation is invaluable!! Whether you are an experienced or average holdem player, reading through this book will allow you to critically examine how you analyze your own game. You may not agree with all of Bob's moves, but the key is by going through the process you'll be able to identify where you disagree -- from this point you can improve your game!

Solid Plays, Good Reasoning.

I recommend this book only after the reader gets a moderate amount of time on the table. The reason for this is that the book teaches by example and it would probably be difficult for a reader who hasn't played before to get the most out of it since he won't be able to relate to the situations given. However, this is what makes this book so strong. Oftentimes, you read a poker book full of concepts, but few examples, and you're left wondering how those concepts would be applied to the situation at hand. The hands given in this book are excellent and very representative of common situations on the poker table. Each example is given with the popular opinion, his opinion (which I usually agree with), and if applicable, a reason why he believes his way is the correct way. Great book to get you thinking and to fill the practical gaps that other poker books have left their readers with. Best in its class!

I wish I could pan this book

The problem is, giving this book a rave review may get people I play with to read it and then I won't make as much money. Still, I must do what I must do.This is a great book on holdem, and deserves to come from a guy who calls himself 'the coach.'Each chapter covers a particular issue (pre-flop play from early position, turn play, etc.), with a brief but useful introduction and then adds numerous extremely useful examples, with correct play pointed out and explained for each example. Useful to read straight through or just go to problem parts of your game (value betting on the river, for example).My only warning is that this book is probably not for beginning players. It has no easy charts on what to play and when and assumes some basic holdem knowledge. That said, for any player beyound the beginner stage this is an excellent book. You won't be sorry (but I might).

I wish you couldn't find this book here

Of the dozen or so poker books I've bought in the last two years, this one has gotten by far the most repeated use. The writing is clear and logical, and the quiz/explanation format is perfect when I'm wondering whether I played a hand correctly. In the last four months I have gone from someone who was terrified of hold'em to a consistently winning player, thanks in large part to repeated study of this book. I think most people will find it much more useful than Sklansky and Malmuth, simply because the practical examples are such an ideal teaching tool.
