What sets Poker Tips that Pay: Expert Strategy Guide for Winning No Limit Texas Hold em apart from other poker books in the field?

  • Focus on real-life hand examples

    As any student of poker knows, experience is the best educator. General principles can be helpful, but you need to see them in action. The genius of the Harrington on Hold em series was its focus on teaching by example, and Poker Tips that Pay adopts a similar approach. Dozens of real-life poker hands are analyzed in pain-staking detail. The reader is brought into the decision-making process, and pros and cons of various moves are explored. It's truly an interactive learning experience.

  • Realistic hands drawn from low and medium-stakes tournaments

    Most poker players will never shell out $10,000 for a big buy-in tournament. Nor will they be playing high-stakes cash games at the Bellagio. So why do most poker books focus on World Series of Poker hands and extraordinary million-dollar bluffs? Poker Tips that Pay includes several interesting hand examples from the most recent WSOP, but focuses on realistic low and medium-stakes hands. The result is a poker book immediately useful to the average player’s bottom line.

  • Detailed illustrations of position, chip counts, and hand progress

    All the hand examples contained in Poker Tips that Pay are prefaced by illustrations showing position, relative chip counts, and descriptions of current table conditions. The flop, turn and river are also illustrated with actual playing cards. The reader is brought right into the action as each hand plays out.

  • Based on The Art of Worldly Wisdom

    There probably isn't a competitive game in the world without a book relating Sun Tzu's Art of War to it. Many other authors have gleaned wisdom from Machiavelli's The Prince. An often-overlooked, yet perennially best-selling book of wisdom by Balthasar Gracian, The Art of Worldly Wisdom, is perfectly suited for the poker table. These pithy sayings provide a useful introduction to each of the chapter lessons in Poker Tips that Pay.
