Read the Reviews:
The explanations of the basics are easy to understand. The book also walks you through all aspects of the game right down to the arrow chart which shows the most powerful hands to begin playing with.
Bill's experience, sincerity and just his overall winning demeanor can be felt and viewed in his writing. He really wants to help the everyday player improve and raise the level of their game. Bill would like to see everyone who reads this book start on their own journey to be a successful Texas Hold'em poker player.
If everyone who reads this book used it as their first step and then continued to read study and practice Texas Hold'em they would all have the tools to become successful players.
A completely different book about poker was written by Bill Burton, a gaming columnist for About.com and several national gaming publications. Get the Edge at Low-Limit Texas Hold’em (Bonus, January 2003) is the most basic and simplistic book on Texas hold’em to date. Burton points out that the majority of people play poker as a form of relaxation and enjoyment. Thus, if you’re a high-limit player looking to get to the next level, this book isn’t for you. But if you’re tired of being asked by your nonpoker-playing friends about how to learn hold’em, this is the book you hand to them and say, “Stop nagging me.”
The basic tools for success at hold’em are presented in a way that is very easy to understand. Burton covers tournament play and money management, as well as the most common mistakes made by the novice or unskilled player. Along the way, he relates his own journey from the kitchen to the cardroom to the winner’s circle. Howard Schwartz of the Gambler’s Book Shop said, “Burton put together the kind of book that should be of interest to those who are about to embark on a trip into the world of low-limit poker.”
From Howard Schwartz Gamblers Book Shop
Burton put together the kind of book that should be of interest to those who are about to embark on a trip into the world of low-limit poker. As a novice who authors a website about gambling, he needed to study poker in order to write about it. But he did more than study; he immersed himself in it until he became a winning player. Still fresh from his education, he wrote this book for others who want to follow a similar path. Burton stresses the importance analyzing your own game, including the basics of proper play, the concept of position, when to check, check-raise, or fold and how to size up your opponents and their styles. He covers tournament play and money management as well as the most common mistakes made by the novice or unskilled player. Along the way, he relates his own journey from the kitchen to the cardroom to the winner's circle.284 pages, paperbound, indexed, January 2003.
Great Book to Teach You The Wining Essentials, March 29, 2003
This is another great book in the Frank Scoblete Get the Edge series and, as a poker player, I am happy to see that Frank's line is now incorporating this game. Bill Burton, the casino guide for About.com, has done a great job of boiling down the essentials of Texas Hold em to a series of rules and betting strategies that I find right on the money. Even as a long time player, I learned a lot from Mr. Burton. This book is an excellent book for beginners and somewhat more experienced players. Burton is easy to read and the book should be one of the two or three must books for starting players to master. Good job all around!
