I am pretty sure I have said before that a book I was reviewing at the time changed my life, but this time it didn’t just change my life, it completely 100% altered my entire poker existence… I don’t know about you, but I am never going to be satisfied with where my poker game is.

I am telling you: Alex Fitzgerald is the best of the best. — Shannon Mack, CardPlayerLifestyle.com
