2.  Harrington on Hold 'em: Expert Strategy for No Limit Tournaments: The Endgame by Dan Harrington

£25.03   Used & New from: £2.05
4.5 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (22 customer reviews)

The Theory of Poker: A Professional Poker Player Teaches You How to Think Like One
3.  The Theory of Poker: A Professional Poker Player Teaches You How to Think Like One by David Sklansky

  "Stage 2 is based on 5 books, to be read in any order.  Theory of Poker is all about theory rather than giving you an off-the-peg strategy.  Learn why the strategies in other books work."
£23.96   Used & New from: £8.23
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (35 customer reviews)

4.  Harrington on Hold 'em: Workbook v. 3: Expert Strategies for No Limit Tournaments by Dan Harrington

4.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (10 customer reviews) | 1 customer discussion

The Psychology of Poker

3.7 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Poker Tournament Formula

3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (19 customer reviews)

Caro's Book of Tells, the Body Language and Psychology of Poker
7.  Caro's Book of Tells, the Body Language and Psychology of Poker by Mike Caro

£14.63   Used & New from: £6.05
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (16 customer reviews)

3.6 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

Every Hand Revealed
12.  Every Hand Revealed by Gus Hansen

The Book of Bluffs: How to Bluff and Win at Poker
13.  The Book of Bluffs: How to Bluff and Win at Poker by Matt Lessinger

£10.16   Used & New from: £0.01
4.1 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (7 customer reviews)

The Mathematics of Poker
14.  The Mathematics of Poker by Bill Chen
The list author says:
  "A very optional extra.  No fun if you've not got a maths degree but the page with tables for optimal heads up jam and fold strategies is useful if you find yourself h2h with a better player."
£19.04   Used & New from: £11.73
3.4 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (29 customer reviews)

Doyle Brunson's Super System II
15.  Doyle Brunson's Super System II by Doyle Brunson
The list author says:
  "Finally, on to stuff outside the course of reading. The no limit holdem in Super System is supposed to be definitive, but I'm not buying a book that thick if I'm only interested in one chapter!"
Used & New from: £4.93

Phil Gordon's Little Green Book: Lessons and Teachings in No Limit Texas Hold'em
16.  Phil Gordon's Little Green Book: Lessons and Teachings in No Limit Texas Hold'em by Phil Gordon
The list author says:
  "This is a great read and has lots of useful stuff, but nothing that's not covered by the course of reading.  Only worth a go if you want an alternative version of many of Harrington's lessons."

No Limit Hold 'em: Theory and Practice
18.  No Limit Hold 'em: Theory and Practice by David Sklansky
The list author says:
  "This book is disjointed and very heavy going.  What good ideas it has tend to be covered elsewhere in the Diploma (mainly in Theory of Poker) or only applicable to cash games."
Used & New from: £7.26
4.2 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (5 customer reviews)

Hold'Em Poker for Advanced Players (Advance Player)
19.  Hold'Em Poker for Advanced Players (Advance Player) by David Sklansky
The list author says:

4.0 out of 5 stars  See all reviews (4 customer reviews)
