Format: Paperback
Good book for players new to the game – which there are a lot of at the minute, but of very limited use to players like myself who have some experience of the game. Too much detail given about how to sign-up for an account, how to make a deposit, etc. – this sort of stuff is fairly straight forward even to newbies – the sites themselves provide extensive instructions for anyone who is experiencing difficulties.
The sample hands given on the CD which accompanies the book are OK – but again, they are very simple and straightforward and won’t really teach much to anyone who already has a good grasp of the basics of the game. Instruction relating to strategies for the games covered comprises a very small part of the overall book.
In summary, buy Internet Texas Holdem by Matthew Hilger if you are anything but an absolute beginner. If you are totally fresh to the game then this book will give you something.

Not much here... 2 Aug. 2004
By Catman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Signing up and playing for free at any online site will teach you 90% of what's in this book. I've played a little over two weeks online, and found nothing in this book that wasn't already obvious. The practice hands are a useful idea, but while I waited for this book to arrive, I've played hundreds and hundreds of hands and started reading books on poker.

I skimmed and understood everything in this book except the practice hands in a couple hours. It contains nothing that you would ever refer to once you know how to play.

If you want to learn poker and play online, buy a book about POKER, not online play. You can figure out the online play without much time or effort.

Save your money 11 Oct. 2004
By Tim Jacobsen - Published on
Format: Paperback
I've purchased 5 poker books in the past few months and this is by far the poorest. It's Texas Holdem section doesnt go beyond pre-flop play - literally! No advice on what to do after flop, on turn, at river. It comes with a free CD which, from what I gathered, promotes an online poker site. My guess is that they are marketing the site. No real content in book.

Great for Beginners, but thats all 23 July 2003
By "bismarckia" - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was slightly disappointed with this book. I have been playing online for a month or so and have learned 96% of the information in this book myself. If you are a new poker fan (a la Travel Channel Wednesday nights) looking to play online, then this is a good read. If you are familiar with the internet and have a basic understanding of poker this book will not help you much. I would suggest taking the money and just playing some games online.

What is this game called poker? 24 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback
I was greatly disappointed by this book, although I'm not an experienced player myself. If you've never played poker, and aren't quite sure what the internet is, this book might be a suitable start. However, for most people reading it is just a waste of time. The author spends as much time at telling you what's best of a flush and a straight, as what hands you should play; the lack of important information is the most striking feature of the book.

disappointment 1 July 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I read this book after playing online poker for 2 weeks, and was disappointed. The best way to learn is get on and play with money you don't mind losing. This book would be for somebody that is uncomfortable doing even that. And if you're uncomfortable testing the waters with a small amount of real money, maybe you shouldn't be playing poker. Bottom line is you can learn more in an evening of real online action than you can from this book. A footnote, the index is completely off, if you're looking for specific data, it sends you to the wrong pages. Weird. Read some of the classics by Sklansky instead.
