Let's face it.
There are plenty of poker books to choose from these
days. In fact, you will find more poker books than any
other kind of book in the "games" section at your local
Barnes and Noble. So now that Daniel Negreanu has come
out with a poker book of his own, it begs the question,
do we really need another one?
Well, if you ask
Avery Cardoza from the US-based gambling book publisher,
Cadoza Books, Negreanu's book is one of the three most
influential books on Texas Hold'em strategy ever
written. Albeit Cardoza may rightfully be biased in
these statements, nobody can deny that Daniel Negreanu
is a fine poker professional - and a talkative one at
Negreanu's book is
called "Power Hold'em Strategy", and is a solid 504
pages long. Negreanu himself said it could have very
well turned into a "1,000 page monster". The book,
however, is packed with poker hand examples dictating
strategy for high-limit cash games, short-handed and
heads-up play, and beginner strategy for neutralizing
professionals like Negreanu himself. Whether you're an
online grinder, a low-limit tournament specialist or an
aspiring pro looking to take your game to the next
level, Negreanu promises this book will "immensely"
improve your game.
Strategy" also shares insight from some of the top pros
on the circuit, including Evelyn Ng, Todd Brunson, Erick
Lindgren and David Williams, who are all apparently a
little rat pack of sorts these days. The creme de la
creme, however, is Negreanu's Small Ball Strategy, which
is essentially a strategy on how to exploit small ball
players at the Hold'em poker table.
The book is now
available for purchase and can be ordered online at many
a book retailer, as well as Cardoza Books website and
Daniel Negreanu's homepage at Full Contact Poker. It
sells for $34.95.
