Excelling at No-Limit Hold’em is a sensation in poker publishing. Renowned poker professional and author Jonathan Little brings together 17 of the greatest no-limit experts in the world to discuss all aspects of the game. These experts include superstars such as Phil Hellmuth, Chris Moneymaker, Mike Sexton and Jared Tendler.
In Part 1 strategies are analysed for topics such as understanding the fundamentals, satellite play, lower-buy in events, analysing tells and moving up in stakes
Part 2 sees a thorough technical breakdown of the game including sections on range analysis, game theory optimal play, short stack strategies, value betting and final table play.
As any serious poker will confirm, the technical side is only half the battle and so Part 3 deals with mental toughness, psychology and understanding tilt.
Excelling at No-Limit Hold‘em provides all the tools that an aspiring player needs to understand no-limit hold‘em. It is a must buy for anyone who is serious about wanting to improve their poker.
This is the best poker book to come out in a long time, and I imagine it will remain the best poker book to come out for many years to come.
As Scott Clements notes in his chapter, ‘Regardless of your comfort zone or your results, if you refuse to push your boundaries, you will not progress and grow as a player.’ By offering such a variety of quality instruction and insight, Excelling at No-Limit Hold’em gives readers several ways to do just that — namely, to push their boundaries and think further about many different facets of hold’em as a means to improve their games.
When someone who is interested in studying poker more asks which poker book they should purchase, the answer is usually a mixture of Super System for the complete basics, and Harrington on Hold’em for further more up-to-date clarifications. However, it is my belief that Excelling at No-Limit Hold’em could become the new go-to book for those wishing to read up on tournament poker.. . Jonathan Little should be commended for bringing such a talented group of individuals together for what is an outstanding poker book.
