05/15/2005: Perfect Situation

here is a sampling of the poker theory/strategy books & DVDs that i own and have read:
~~ Super System by Doyle Brunson
~~ The Theory of Poker by David Sklansky
~~ Hold 'em Poker for Advanced Players by David Sklansky & Mason Malmuth
~~ Tournament Poker for Advanced Players by David Sklansky
~~ Play Poker Like the Pros by Phil Hellmuth, Jr.
~~ 52 Tips for Texas Hold 'em Poker by Barry Schulman
~~ Championship No-Limit & Pot-Limit Hold 'em by T.J. Cloutier & Tom McEvoy
~~ Secrets of No-limit Hold 'em by Howard Lederer
~~ More Secrets of No-limit Hold 'em by Howard Lederer
~~ Winning Guide to On-line Poker by Howard Lederer

quite a list. of all those, Harrington on Hold 'em is quite possibly the best. i realize i am only about 2/3rds the way through, but it is the clearest, more simple yet intelligent explanation of Hold 'em tournament poker that i have laid hands on. of course, i could be partial b/c it seems to really mesh with where i see my game going these days. either way, if you haven't read it: beg, borrow, or steal it tomorrow.

ok, that's it: the end of my week w/o poker. i am assuming that at the least, i am going to play in Hellmuth's charity event here next week. why? well, my mom is a 15 year survivor of breast cancer - so at the very least, the money is going to a great cause. beyond that, i don't really need a reason!

back to my couch....
