5.0 out of 5 stars A classic, and for good reason: concepts herein are timeless
This book was written 11 years ago. Think about that for a second, and what it says about how fundamentally revolutionary the concepts Sklansky presents must be, that players still consider this book among the most important ever put into print. You'll still find this book on the bookshelves of every serious poker player, and I, along with most serious amateurs I know,...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good but probably avoid if you are only playing hold 'em
The Theory of Poker is a good book but if you are a relatively new poker player and are primarily playing texas hold 'em then you would be better off buying the Harrington series because while this book covers some important ideas, many of the examples and explanations are given in terms of other forms of poker such as Draw and 7 card Stud. If you are a recreational poker...

5.0 out of 5 stars A serious book for serious players, 24 Feb. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: The Theory of Poker: A Professional Poker Player Teaches You How to Think Like One (Paperback)
Any person who needs to know "when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em" must pick up this book. Mr. Sklansky teaches you what the good players know. Ever wonder if you were wrong in folding that four flush? With the help of Mr. Sklansky you will understand.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for begginers, 25 Mar. 2013

This review is from: The Theory of Poker: A Professional Poker Player Teaches You How to Think Like One (Paperback)
This book contains a lot of good tips and strategies, however, most of it you will know already if you play poker. Suitable for the amateur but anyone playing online forget it, the rules dont apply at all you better to take your own rules and play as you have been. Not sure the razz and other bits are really still current and relevant.

Great book for beginners, I have read more books after this and without reading this one first i wouldn't have a clue what they were on about! Only thing I didn't like was the book is about all poker games, and not just 1! Some people may prefer this! Everything in this book every poker player needs to know!
