Poker is a game of skill, knowledge and luck. Martin Jacobson found this out the hard way. He has made an ordinary life ordinary for his family after being fired from his job in a paper factory. In this eye-opening book, he recounts the bizarre story of how he became one of the most sought after poker players in the world.
Poker is about making and winning decisions as well as understanding when to fold and raise when. Jacobson is no different from the hundreds of other poker professionals who have captivated the public’s attention.
Poker is a game of skill, but not any kind of skill. Poker players must make a decision quickly and without hesitation. They must follow through with their game plan or play will be doomed. If you are on the lookout for a quick way to become the best in the world at poker, you have come to the right place.
A positive approach towards both the short term and long term strategies as well as a rapid mental rate will put you on top. This book is packed with insider secrets and tips that have made Martin Jacobson the best in the world.
If you are a beginner to poker or a seasoned player looking for some advanced tips, I recommend you start your journey with The Poker Game. It covers everything you ever wanted to know about poker in an easy to understand manner. My favorite part of the book is the sections on how to actually play the game and the strategy behind it.
These are facts that you will need to know in order to understand the rules of the game. Jacobson gives some very interesting details on what he calls “Blitz Checkers.”
Most people donot know that there are various rules that apply to each variation of the game. As such, you need to know the rule of checkers before you understand the rules of Omaha. This book will help you understand everything about poker before playing the game.
I thoroughly enjoyed this short term strategy of Jacobson. It takes the reader through the learning curve of a new poker player.
Now, all of the other details are more complicated than what Martin Jacobson brings up. He gives you all the information you need, but does not elaborate on specifics until chapter fourteen, because he wants you to be a poker pro before you start reading.
The information Jacobson gives you is useful, but if you do not know the rules of the game or if you do not know the lingo, this book will be of limited use to you. However, if you know the rules of the game or if you are a seasoned player, then you will find this book extremely helpful.
Some of the real time strategies he presents will get you into trouble sooner than later. You will see in this book how he develops his game plan. His references are really good for reference purposes as well.
The book does not end at the end of the book. As, well as the twelve chapters covering the various areas of poker, this book also includes many pages that will give you a big picture view of the game and a short term view of strategy.
