Synopsis:

The how-to-win guide for the blue chip of poker games.

Texas Hold'em, the game featured on the popular television programs and dealt at well-known tournaments, has quickly become the one to playand the one to win. 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 version of 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.
