From the Author
My book is a good introduction to Texas Hold'em poker.
First - I'm real tickled to see that amazon.com is carrying my book.
In case you're confused, this book is about a version of poker called "Texas Hold'em", which is the most popular version of the game as played in casinos and cardrooms west of the Mississippi (for some reason, the heathen on the east coast are not fully converted from 7-card stud).
I wrote this book after realizing that there was no good beginning text for people that were playing in wild, low-limit hold'em games mostly peopled by folks that just wanted to gamble.
I learned much of what I know from reading authors Mason Malmuth and David Sklansky, and then trying (unsuccessfully) to apply their tactics to lower limit games. After analyzing the differences, I wrote "Winning Low-Limit Hold'em" to bridge the gap.
I need also to acknowledge the support of the participants of the rec.gambling.poker newsgroup on Usenet, and encourage you to read it. It's one of the most information-filled flame-free fora on Usenet.
