Format: Paperback
Normally when I review a poker book (and I've reviewed perhaps a dozen, including Mitchell Cogert's previous one on Razz) I like to take issue with a recommended play or two. The truth is there IS more than one way to skin a cat (a catfish, that is), and opinions can differ. Furthermore it's fun to offer a different strategy. Here, however, I'm going to skip the quibbling and just say straight out that Cogert knows what he's talking about and his advice really is "expert."

What I especially like about this book is how Cogert combines personal experience (he's a very good player who has, among other things, won the Northern California Championship for no-limit hold'em in 2002) with knowledge from books and from watching some of the top pros. His basic point is that to get beyond the bubble in no-limit tournaments you have to be willing to take risks. Nobody ever won a big no limit tournament who didn't gamble, and some of the most spectacular wins (Chris Moneymaker in 2003 and Jamie Gold in 2006) came about after some really wild rick taking! The plain fact is that in any tournament luck is a huge factor. You can increase your luck (or decrease it!) by taking chances. What is taking a chance? It means not playing "scared poker." Yes, it will happen that 65 percent of the time an overcard to your pocket jacks will fall on the flop (as Cogert explains in the appendix on "Most frequently asked poker questions"). And yes, pocket rockets tend in no-limit to win a lot of small pots, but when they get cracked, they drain your chips seriously--although people tend to forget that some of the biggest pots are won when pocket aces improve, or when somebody decides to make a stand with a painted pair.

While Harrington on Hold'em will probably remain the ultimate guide to tounament play for many years to come, the books are chunky tomes which are hard on the hands (IMO) and require a substantial investment of time to digest. This little beauty, on the other hand, can be read easily in an evening and feasibly slipped into a travel bag (or possibly a large pocket) for some pre-tournament mental preparation.

The 101 moves is probably more like 91 since a few of them are repeated to fit into the book's structure of following the action, i.e. pre-flop, post-flop, turn and river, but I guess 101 sounds better and there's still plenty here to chew over.

For those who emphasize the importance of hand examples, each suggested play is backed up by case studies and there's a sprinkling of anectodes too, which add to the book's easy-to-read feel.

As it says on the back "If you take a way just one winning play from this book, it will pay for itself many times over". That may be something of an exageration, however it is fair to say that this book should get you thinking about the different ways you can play a hand and that can only improve your play and your profits.

This does indeed have 101 moves for various situations, but it's use will depend on how experienced you are. A lot of moves, such as the continuation bet, are really basic moves which 99% players know and use. There wasn't really a move in which I didn't know and I didnt learn anything of use from it.

I do play a lot and have read some very advanced books so I do know a lot of things already. If you don't play much, havent read many books it might help you out. But, I would say read Harrington if you aren't experienced, and Kill Everyone and/or Kill Phil if you know more.

This book does have some awful advice, example, one of the moves is "turn up late after the first 2 levels", because, apparently, in the first few levels people play loose and you won't get into trouble if you aren't there. Complete and utter rubbish.

There are so many far far better books that you really shouldn't waste money or time on this!

Probably the only book that I've read that goes some way in describing how good players think! My only negative (not a negative really just a comment) is that the moves need to be applied in the right circumstance. By circumstances I mean table dynamics and the villains profile and from what I remember this topic isn't touched upon nearly enough. You raise from early position with AQ and get a call from a station. You cbet on a 972 rainbow flop and he calls. The turn is a king (great scare card right?) There is little point in representing a scare card on the Turn if he has hit the 7 on the flop - he isn't going anywhere! He probably isn't even aware that this could be a good card for you considering your preflop early position open.....if you get my drift. Other than that I loved the book and when applied properly it works well.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the Best Books on Tournament Poker 27 April 2009
By Kindle Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Not being written by a high profile professional player, I wondered if it would be any good. It really is. And, No, I don't know the author.

This book is full of practical advice you can use right away. It basically tells you the "tricks of the trade" used by the pros extract chips from the rest of us. The "trick" is that the pros know that big hands are rare, so most likely, their opponents do not have a hand they're very confident in. These techniques work on that theory, but they let YOU be the one extracting the chips.

This book is well worth the little bit it costs. If nothing else, it will let you know what other players have been doing to you.

5.0 out of 5 stars A lot of inspiration in a small, easy to read book! 9 July 2009
By Jon - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Let's face it: sometimes you need to add a touch of inspiration to your poker game. 101 Winning Moves: Expert Plays for No Limit Hold em is bound to give you a couple of new ideas you hadn't thought of, unique plays for various situations you might come across. The beauty of poker is that each deal of the cards presents a new opportunity for creativity, and author Mitchell Cogert has provided a lot of material to ponder over here. Anything that gets you out of subconscious, entrenched betting patterns and predictable, straight-forward plays is sure to improve your bottom line at the tables. A highly recommended addition to any poker player's library.
3.0 out of 5 stars Not exactly 101 but ... 1 July 2010
By D'Artagnan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A good book for players below expert level even if they know part of the so-called 101 winning moves.
Some interesting tips behind the lines and a good reminder of important situations.
The book deals with hands and not with strategy ( even if there are some clues when short-stacked ).
It is quite noticeable that the author sometimes recommends folding ( yes that happens ! ) even it is not a winning move

4.0 out of 5 stars Good But Not Great 30 May 2009
By Joe Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Good book with many tips to add to your poker arsenal. Some of the examples are a little too perfect, but they get the point across. It was easy to read, and I feel I improved my game by implementing just a few of the strategies. I wouldn't recommend this to a beginner, because some poker knowledge is needed. Its no super-system or HoH, but definitely better than half the junk that's out there.
