David Benefield’s Poker Strategy is at the top of every one of the biggest game store indexes. He has a commitment to win and there is nothing he won’t do to make that happen. This author has many hours of poker experience under his belt and I must say his approach is very good. Here are some of my favorite things about his “Gifts For The Poker Game”.
– His Poker Strategy is not one dimensional. In fact, there are many different views on how he thinks about the game.
He recognizes that you have to know the overall game and how to approach the key moments in order to maximize your success. The Three Pillars of Poker Strategy as he refers to them know when to hold, when to fold, and knowing how to create situations where you can strategically attack the board position. David really is committed to getting a win for himself and understands that many more decisions need to be made to accomplish that goal.
There are two main reasons I like this book. It is packed with all kinds of information and it is written by a great poker player who has been successful.
For those who are new to the game of poker you will benefit from this broad view of the game. He walks you through all of the key poker strategies and what he believes they are good for. You also learn about the all important game concepts and theory.
For someone who is at the top of their game, this poker strategy really makes sense. I’m sure that he will not teach you everything you need to know to win. He does have some things to help you, however.
Every chapter in this book is filled with clear explanations and concepts, all of which he demonstrates and explains in his Principles ofPoker Strategy. You will learn the strategies and their application to your situation.
That part about him not just teaching you the basics, but applying them in a way that will best help you win your poker game. You get all of the information and you can see the results right before your eyes. This makes it easy to relate to the concepts as I did many times when I was learning.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about learning the game of poker. I was skeptical at first, thinking I would have to reread each chapter. I found that to be true.
However, the lessons and information in this book have been proven to work and the author keeps moving it to new areas so that you are always ahead of the game. The book is hard hitting, sometimes painful, and sometimes great to read.
If you want to be good at poker then you need to get this book. It’s a must have for any serious poker player. But, if you are just getting started, then this book is a great place to start and you can pick up other poker related books on the subject.
This book has an excellent poker strategy and the author does a great job of explaining and describing the tactics used. He also explains the poker math used to evaluate poker players.
