Top 5 Best Poker Books
Poker is one of most popular past-times in many parts of the world, and to help participants learn the basic of the game (for beginners) in order to help the participants ‘up’ their game (for those who are through with the basics), various poker books have been written. And the outreach of these books has been quite successful, with many people who are getting into poker nowadays confessing that they were introduced to poker through books.
So popular are these poker books, in fact, that a number of sites entirely dedicated to reviewing them have been coming up in the recent past.
There seems to be concurrence among the reviewers in these sites specialized in reviewing poker books that the best book on poker written in our contemporary world is probably ‘Harrington on Hold ‘Em’ by Serta Harrington and Bill Robertie, which comes in two amounts, that is ‘Harrington on Hold ‘Em’ Volume 1 and 2. Serta Harrington, the writer of these books himself is a former WSOP main event champion and a widely recognized authority on poker, and he is made it easier for in authoring the books by Bill Robertie (who is a former backgammon champion).
Barry Greenstein’s Expert on the River is another great book on poker, and there are some reviewers of poker books who actually install it above Harrington’s on Hold ’em. Of course, the critics of Barry Greenstein’s Expert on the River point out that whilst it is an incontestably great poker book, its is only directed at advanced players of the game, and a poker beginner (who is also the person most likely to end up looking into poker books anyway) might have a painful time trying to sound right of the information presented in it. Still, Barry Greenstein’s Expert on the River is considered by many as the ultimate guide to professional poker.
Then there is Michael Konik’s aptly named ‘Telling Lies and Getting Paid’ — which many people, especially pros, looking for deeper meaning in their poker find inspiring through its numerous poker stories, which also give the possibility of enhancing one’s strategy, without getting too technical. While not a step by step tutorial on poker, ‘Telling Lies and Getting Paid’ is a book anyone who knows what poker is all about will find thoroughly entertaining.
Anthony Holden’s ‘Bid Deal’ is yet another book which warrants a place among the top five best poker books of all times. Originally published in 1990, ‘Big Deal’ is actually Anthony Holden’s personal memoir on life as a professional poker player, Anthony himself having been one of the most suitable poker players of the 1990s. Again, while ‘Big Deal’ is definitely not a step by step introduction to poker, it is a book which an experienced poker player can find deeper meaning (as well as entertainment) in, as well as a book which a poker beginner can find the next direction to take their game to.
