In the context of teaching readers the basics of Texas Hold’em, this revised edition covers "No Limit" strategies and tournaments, and the basics for winning bigger cash pots. Although the dynamics for this versionof the game are similar to its low-limit cousin, "No Limit" strategy is quite different. This revised book covers no-limit in much greater detail, as it relates to cash games, online games, and tournaments.
