Hold’em Poker for Advanced Players – Review

It is now a new century, and the authors have again moved the state of the art forward by adding over pages of new material, including extensive sections on “loose games,” and “short-handed games.

Some of the other ideas discussed include play on the first two cards, semi-bluffing, the free card, inducing bluffs, staying with a draw, playing when a pair flops, playing trash hands, desperation bets, playing in wild games, reading hands, and psychology.

When ta hold ’em! Know when to fold ’em Don’t let my 3 star rating fool you, this is a very good book. Hold’em Poker will assist the player’s game to advance beyond the rudiments with numerous tips and examples that include diagrams showing the hands being You got to know when to hold ’em.

Hold’em Poker will assist the pojer game to advance beyond the rudiments with numerous tips and examples that include diagrams showing the hands being discussed. The problem is that it’s a tad on the dry side.

Sklansky did not prove himself to be a riveting writer as far as this example shows. Perhaps Hold’em Poker is meant to read like a textbook, a very useful textbook I might reiterate. That’s fine, but I’d be surprised to ever find a textbook I felt passionate enough dzvid to give a 5 star rating. View all 4 comments.


Aug 26, Ryan Greer rated it liked it. I’ve had this book following me around for months, just begging to be finished. I have a couple complaints: Nevertheless I’m glad I finally finished it. I wouldn’t say it’s an essential read for anyone who wants to get better at poker, many of its strategies are fairly common, if poorly understood by those who use them.

It is nice to learn some of the stats, and to consider some of the psychology that makes studying your opponent, slowplays, semi-bluffs, and squeeze plays so much fun. Poker is a great game because the idiot and the genius can both play together and some days you might not be able to tell which is which Jun 14, Sanford Chee rated it liked it.

On par with Ed Miller’s book. Read both in conjunction to get a firmer grasp of the concepts. This book is better in terms of explaining the concepts and less confusing in terms of explaining limit bets. Jul 08, Eric M rated it really liked it. An interesting style of writing. The book is very informative but the writing style can be cumbersome at times, the authors do elude to that in the opening chapter and warn that the book is based on content and not out to win a pulitzer.

Some of the topics seem extremely detailed and others seem like they were included but not fully developed at the time. A good mid-range book as far as methods of play goes. Mar 22, Richard rated it it was amazing. The first book I ever read on poker.

Can’t argue with that ROI, so for that it gets 5 stars It’s been quite some time since picking this one up though, and some of the material may be a little outdated, although I recall liking it slightly better still than Lee Jones limit hold’em which was a similar text.

Jan 30, Mike Hill rated it really liked it. The tight aggressive style of play will always win at limit hold em May 22, Jay rated it it was ok. I really preferred Dan Harrington’s books. If you are into No Limit Hold ‘Em tournaments. People debate whether Harrington is a good teacher as he is not the most winning player of late, but solid for instruction and example hands are great.

Sklansky is obviously a genius of poker but makes the reader work too hard to get the goods. Apr 21, Michael Chaddock rated it really liked it. Good information which I’ve ended up using, but the book is difficult to read and can be a bit of a slog. I wouldn’t recommend it to casual players. As a casual player myself, I don’t know if the time spent reading it was worth the investment.


Ultimately I should have taken the title more seriously or been a little less arrogant about my perceived skill. Jan 29, Robert Owens rated it liked it Shelves: So I thought I was going to become a card player. Yup, so were a lot of other guys.

Hold’em Poker for Advanced Players by David Sklansky – Review

It didn’t quite work out that way. This is a good book. Sklansky is an expert. I learned a lot, just not enough to commit my own cash. There is probably no other form of poker as difficult. Yet, the game appears deceptively simple. I will return to this book and may be re-evaluate it later.

Nov 01, Robin Spano added it. I read this after Harrington’s series, when I was ready for some more advanced i. Dec 22, Brian rated it liked it Shelves: Sklansky is a very, very, very smart hold ’em instructor; that said, his other hold ’em book is more useful than this one. Sep 07, PlatKat rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Picking it up after a long hiatus.

Borrowed the copy I started reading and had to return it. Informative, but inconsistent writing. May 27, Kingsley rated it liked it. Not bad, I’d stick to Doyle’s book. If you’ve read all the other poker books, give this one a shot. Dec 18, Daniel Young rated it really liked it. Another excellent guide to limit hold ’em poker theory. This one is more specific to live games against competent players.

Aug 02, Cyberpope rated it liked it. A dry difficult read, unlike Sklansky’s “Theory of Poker” The information is good, but it’s a slow dragging time gleaning it. May 20, Shaun rated it liked it. Dry and at times very boring.

Only covers limit poker. Feb 16, Duke Dee rated it liked it. It is however extremely informative. Oct 18, John rated it it was ok. No doubt it was a great book in it’s day. My rating reflects that times have changed and there are a lot of better books now.

Mar 09, Scott Hoverman rated it liked it. Look at the cover. Cards AND a big gun. What more could you ask for? Dec 20, Gregory added it.

Building on the basic theory.
