It’s becoming almost as big as baseball, football, hockey, and other sporting events. Television has increased its popularity. With the Internet, it’s coming into our homes at a lightning fast rate. The rage that’s sweeping the nation – poker! Although the game has been around for years played in family recreation rooms, smoky bars, casinos, and even retirement homes, these days, poker has become the game of choice for hundreds of thousands of people. Family game night used to mean getting out the Monopoly board and battling over Park Place and Broadway. Now, family game night is more likely to be characterized by breaking out the poker chips and battling each other for the best hands. More and more people are talking about their bad beats, their great hands, and their prowess for play. Popular on college campuses, fraternal clubs, and even retirement homes, poker has become our new game of chance, and our new game of choice. What has led to the rise of this game? Most likely, it has been television and the media. On any given evening, the average person can flip on the TV set and find a poker game being aired. The World Series of Poker, Celebrity Poker Showdown, and Ultimate Poker Showdown are rising in the ratings as we tune in to see professionals battle it out and compare our play to theirs. Nearly every home these days has at least one computer. The Internet has become our lifeline, in ways, for information, contact with the outside world, and – yes – our portal to the world of poker beyond our kitchen table. Now ordinary people can log on and play poker with people other than our parents, kids, and friends. Many professional players sponsor online website where they are required to play allowing Average Joe to match his poker skills with the likes of Howard Lederer and Chris Ferguson. Perhaps the biggest rise in poker popularity – specifically online poker – stems from one man’s $40 online buy-in leading to the Cinderella story of the industry. Chris Moneymaker qualified for The World Series of Poker main event through a small buy-in satellite event at Poker Stars. At the Series, he outlasted a field of 839 entrants – the largest in World Series of Poker history at the time. He pitted heads against some of the most well-known poker professionals in the world – and won! Moneymaker’s first-place finish netted him $2.5 million dollars, which wasn’t bad considering it was his first live tournament. Many people looked at Moneymaker’s win as monumental. After all, he was just an average guy. He could be anyone’s next door neighbor or co-worker, and he went up against the pros and won. Chris Moneymaker opened the door for everyday people to dream about being the next professional poker player. In fact, the 2004 World Series featured triple the number of players over the 2003 turnout. At least four players in the WSOP final table won their entry through an online card room. Like Moneymaker, 2004 winner Greg “Fossil man” Raymer also won his entry at the Poker Stars online card room. There are a myriad of tips and tricks for playing the game of poker. Everyone seems to have an opinion on the best way to play the game. True, poker is a game of chance, and many would argue that there really is no secret to winning the game. However, there is a best way to play. As Kenny Rogers sang in “The Gambler”, you’ve got to know when to hold ‘em and know when to fold ‘em. Know when to walk away, and know when to run. There are many variations on the game of poker, but the one most popular today has got to be Texas Hold ‘Em. It’s a relatively simple game, but like all poker, it can change with the deal of every card. In this book, we’ll explore different ways to play the game online to maximize on your buy-in. We’ll touch on tournaments as well. Online poker can be fun and even profitable when you play smart and follow the advice of those in the know. Whether you’re playing for fun or for money, the game can easily become an obsession, so we’ve also given you information about getting help with a gambling problem. We won’t make you a professional – that’s up to you! But we will try to give you some food for thought when the cards are dealt and it’s time to bet. So, let’s talk poker!

This book is an introduction to the poker game, emphasizing on the Texas Hold 'em Poker, the betting structure, poker variants, poker strategy and specific poker tournaments. The popularity of poker (mainly the no-limit Texas hold'em) reached an unprecedented peak in the 2000s. This "poker boom" is attributed to several factors: the invention of online poker, the television broadcast tournaments (with miniature cameras revealing the cards), the presentation of the online poker sites in television commercials, and victory in 2003 of Chris Moneymaker at the World Series of Poker. Not only the public can now follow the actions of the tournaments on television, turning this game in the sporting spectacle, but it can also be played directly from home. The spread of tournaments such as the World Series of Poker and the World Poker Tour created a strong following among television program providers by cable or satellite. Because of the hype, professional players have become celebrities, with many fans around the world participating in tournaments in the hope of being confronted with these celebrities. Poker is played in many variations but there are three large families. They differ firstly by the way of distribution of playing cards. Cards can be shared by all players or private for each player. They can also be closed (visible only by the owner of cards) or open (visible to all). There are also differences in the game base on stakes. The winning hands can be high, low or both (high/low). In some embodiments where poker is played high and low hands, certain conditions are imposed on low hands. For example, a player's hand can not contain card over eight (eight or better), or aces can count only as high card (deuce to seven). Poker is a microcosm of all we admire and disdain about capitalism and democracy. It can be rough-hewn or polished, warm or cold, charitable and caring or hard and impersonal. It is fickle and elusive, but ultimately it is fair, and right, and just. -- Lou Krieger

Much like a pilot need not know the pure physics behind his flight, a skilled poker player need not know the pure mathematics behind winning poker play. Too often have poker books taken a purely theoretical approach to poker instruction. This book is the only poker book available that caters specifically to online sit'n'go (SNG) single'table low'limit Texas Hold'em tournaments. More importantly, it is the only poker book that guides the reader on a progressive path upward through the various limits, with only the information necessary to win with any bankroll or skill level to beat that specific low limit. Presented in a series of steps, the book provides guidelines that help tell the reader when to move up to a higher limit. SNG's have very predictable durations (40'60 minutes) so the reader could effectively set aside blocks of time to play. Unlike other games, the book contends that SNG's have very predictable win/loss rates, can be defeated systematically, and offer an innate system of progression. That is, the various buy'in amounts can be viewed as a climbable ladder that helps gauge success. As with any gambling, winning is not a sure thing. But this book gives you the tools you need to win.

It takes a special book to take a player to the next level, and this is that book. --Amy Calistri, Poker School Online While other highly touted books on hold'em poker offer enough tips to turn a committed beginner into a moderately successful player, none offers the strategies needed to turn an experienced player into a consistent winner--until now. This guide even goes one step further by exposing exactly what the pros don't want you to know. "My only worry is that they have given away too much information." --Matt Lessinger, author of The Book of Bluffs Revealed within these pages are the actual techniques--equally effective for virtually all poker games--that professional gamblers use to win consistently. You'll find out how to quickly recognize and capitalize on betting patterns, how to develop a table image that pays big dividends, advanced bank management techniques, and why the cards you hold are often less important than the way you play them, plus: • Why folding more can lead to winning more • How betting limits dramatically impact the way you should play your hands • Why women have an innate edge • Telltale signs to look for when choosing a casino table • Why it's smarter to be the one who bets and not the sucker who calls "Easy to understand, helpful, and fun to read." --Dave Scharf, author of Winning at Poker Take that next step--armed with the secrets of the pros! A popular columnist for several magazines, including Bluff and Fifth Street, the newspaper The Nevada Sunday, as well as the author of seven top-selling books on poker, Lou Krieger is one of gaming's biggest names. In 2000, he was dubbed "one of the most influential gaming writers of the past hundred years" by Casino Journal--an honor bestowed on only four others worldwide. Sheree Bykofsky has been the winner or first runner-up in hundreds of poker tournaments, both in casinos and online, and won a seat as a participant in the 2004 World Series of Poker. She is also a literary agent and the author of more than twenty books, as well as countless articles on a variety of subjects, which have appeared in major magazines and newspapers.
