The general problem with poker books that teach exploitive strategy is that they are easily dated. The once ground-breaking tactics outlined in Doyle Brunson's. Editorial Reviews. About the Author. Andrew "BalugaWhale" Seidman is a professional poker I am not a huge fan of poker books, so when a fellow reg suggested this book to me, it took me a couple months to actually plunk down the money. I thought I may have found that book with Andrew Seidman's Easy Game 3rd Edition, but alas, I stumbled upon yet another great poker book.
Air Ratios Shorthanded and Positional Protection Live Money Practically Optimal Since its first release and subsequent update , a lot has changed in the game. What I had thought was a comprehensive guide to all elements of poker now seems full of gaping holes. Students, both through private coaching and public forums, continually brought up questions both obvious and valid that are simply not covered in the first editions of the book.
Practically Optimal The Diminishing Medium Value Category I will admit that my game is stuck in the past and outdated a hard truth to admit and accept. Like so many people, I miss the days in when I could sit down at a table, completely dominate it, and cash out several hundred dollars ahead. Unfortunately, the game has changed and become much tougher.
Players like Seidman have figured out the science of the game, and while poker will never be a game of complete information like chess, it is about as close to being solved as it can be.
With Easy Game 3rd Edition, I feel much more comfortable understanding equity, game dynamics, and several advanced theories. Not only did I discover a lot of new material in this book, but reading it revealed that I have a lot left to learn.
Poker is constantly evolving, and even though Seidman will bring you up to speed, he is quick to point out that you need to continue to learn and adapt to keep pace with an ever-changing game. Of course I say that as a first-time reader of Seidman. Even though I did not read the first two editions of the book, it seems to me that there is enough new material to warrant buying the third edition. That is not the case here because Seidman has shown care in crafting an updated and worthwhile book.
The one major disadvantage Seidman faces with his book is name recognition, specifically a lack thereof. I should note that Seidman is well-known in the poker community, playing online under the screen name "BalugaWhale" he plays on Pokerstars under "Bwhale28".
He also has a very loyal following in the poker forums. Zen and the Art of Poker by Larry W. Phillips Many poker players have proven over time how mental conditioning keep them in the zone when they are playing. A lot of the basic principles of Zen is applicable to poker.
