Ahhhhh! I Needed Those Brain Cells

If you are serious about learning to play poker, crushing your opponents, and frying up the fish, do NOT read this book:  Teach Yourself How to Win at Poker.

It is written in a way that is easy to understand, with nice illustrations, but it has, in my view very little substance.  It only talks about poker in vague terms.  One of it's pieces of advice was to deal yourself lots of hands and figure out for yourself what starting hands are worth playing.  Pre-Internet poker, this might be reasonable, but with so many sites, you would do just as well playing every starting hand until you figured it out.  Play chips are cheap.

I want my brain cells back, please?

Someone actually wrote a much better review of this book on Amazon.  If you want to read it, click the above link.

Enjoy the Pokery Goodness (you just won't find it in this book!)!
