Format: Hardcover
This book follows 'Phil Gordon's Little Green Book'. Having digested the details from the first book I felt intrigued to see how the blue book followed on. I am pleased to say it does not disappoint. This blue book takes what you've already learnt from the first and puts you at the table of lots of key hands Phil has played over the years. At every junction of every hand, Phil asks you, "what would you do know?". Providing you take the opportunity to test yourself you see how you decisions differ from his and the result of his decisions. Phil doesn't claim to be making the best decisions and evidences this on several hands. It's a great insight into a professional players thought process and considerations before making your decision
I think I prefered this book to it's 'little green sister' but both are very good. It doesn't matter if you're a beginner or accomplished player, this book will give you an edge.
Since reading these books I have played two cash games over 6-7 hours and made over £600 profit!! I think that speaks volumes for these books!

Phil Gordon's writing treads a fine line between being entertaining and infuriatingly arrogant. It's a typical cliquey poker-pro writing style, which for the more reserved British reader may be a little annoying at times (I found it quite good fun).

But for the more important stuff, the content: it's very good. The only apparent structure to the book is the type of tournament or stage of the tournament we are in - otherwise it's just a long, unstructured series of plays. I didn't find this a problem as I just read it cover-to-cover, but it would mean that finding specific plays would be tricky.

His choice of hands is a little skewed as well. There are a LOT of examples of going in with weak or marginal hands only to flop two pair or better. I would have preferred to see more examples of less helpful flops.

Overall, though, these are detailed thought-processes for each play, explained in detail, and with refreshing honesty when he knows he made a bad play. Recommended.

Gave this as a gift to our eldest son; so can't really comment other than to say that there were no complaints.

It’s great to see how a pro plays his hands and his process to make decisions. He explains the math behind it, his reading of the situation and his learning from the hand. He shows wining and loosing hands and tries to make it simple and humorous at the same time. Should be bought together with the little green and the little gold book. For the hand analysis lovers I also recommend Gus Hansen’s Every Hand Revealed.

Delivered very quickly in mint condition ; I have read it and learnt a lot ; I even think by using what I have learnt my results at poker have improved. Good vendor, great book.
