Victor Ramdin’s book, Poker, Brainstormed, is a fun read. It’s very well written and covers a lot of topics. I’m a big fan of poker and read a lot of books on the subject. I did not have any problem getting through this book.
I also really enjoyed the different sections of this book. Each chapter begins with a self-introduction, which describes the book in detail. The chapters cover a number of important topics, such as poker etiquette. Ramdin also explains his poker philosophy. In his book, he makes it very clear that playing poker doesn’t always have to be winning.
It can just be a learning experience. I particularly liked how he describes playing poker with kids.
I thought the chapter about poker card counting was very interesting. In the book, Ramdin claims that no matter how good you are at counting cards, you can improve your game in the long run. He also mentions that if you’re an amateur player, you should start doing card counting at the age of ten, but if you’re a pro, you can get better by adding an extra ten card pile each time you play.
The book also includes a chapter about the theories of other famous pros. Some of them include Roger Clemens, Phil Ivey, and Mark Wahlberg. I was impressed by the amount of material covered in the book. I did not think that Victor Ramdin was an expert in any area.
The book is good for the beginner or the advanced player. There are sections of instruction and practical advice for both types of players. But, there are some problems.
While some of the advice given is good, other advice seems to be contradictory. For example, some people say that if you bet too high on a bluff, you are asking for a bad hand. But, Ramdin also says that people who play too deep in tournaments usually fold, so how can you really make too much of a bluff?
The book does give some practical advice, such as not raising a call when it is a three pair. I think the bad part of this is that it sounds so easy. However, if you are deep into the tournament and have a good hand, it is good advice.
The book also includes some practical advice on money management. The money management part of the book focuses on how much you should bet. It does not go into the limits. Some advice says to raise from an early position when you’re behind and to call when you’re ahead.
The only downside to the book is that there is not much good advice on flop betting. This is a bit surprising, because a lot of people say that they like this part of the game. Victor Ramdin does not seem to like it either. In any case, it’s not as important as most people think.
The book is not only great for beginners and experts in poker. It’s also a good book for those who are playing for fun. The advice is good, and the poker styles, strategies, and thoughts in the book make for a very interesting read.
Overall, I really enjoyed the book. I highly recommend it.
