Synopsis

A lot of poker books promise instant success, screaming Crush the online games or How I won a million dollars playing poker. They suggest that poker is actually rather easy and that anyone with five minutes to spare can quickly gain expertise in the game. But you know that these claims simply arent true.

To achieve mastery of poker is not easy it requires a great deal of deep thinking. Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold em is a unique and remarkable book, providing a clear framework with which to analyse the game. The author Will Tipton, a PhD candidate at Cornell University, demonstrates how decision trees can be used to model complex poker decisions. Starting with simple preflop-only situations, he moves on to consider deeper concepts such as balance, the analysis of ranges, and the theory behind optimal bet sizing.

Its a very exciting game in its own right, but its also critical for the final stages of tournament or sitngo play. If you find yourself playing for first prize, you will be playing heads up for a great deal of money. Perfecting your play will give you the edge to maximise your expectation whether you are competing for the big money or grinding out your profit in heads up cash games or SNGs.

Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold em will give you that edge by:

  • helping you identify and maximally exploit opponents tendencies
  • giving you a clear explanation of the practical application of theoretical ideas
  • developing your intuition about game theory so that you can apply its lessons directly at the tables
