Présentation de l'éditeur
What if everything you thought you knew about poker turned out to be wrong? If you’ve been wondering why you aren’t making a profit at poker, it may be because much of the advice in today’s mainstream poker theory is incorrect. The authors take apart the fifty greatest fallacies in poker, many of which represent the pillars of the game, revealing the fallacies that cost you big money. The underlying fault in each misconception is thoroughly explained, and corrected, with numerous real-life poker hands that demonstrate each concept. Schmidt also takes you with him to the poker table as he plays twenty-five pivotal hands, and then gives you a self-quiz to test your progress in understanding the book’s groundbreaking poker concepts. The authors held each of the fifty pieces of advice to two standards: First, does this advice get in the way of players being profitable; and second, can we prove it? Get ready for a book that will revolutionize your game and, bottom line, make you money!

It doesnt throw in the trash ancient concepts, but prevents the online player not to be "narrow-minded" or "obsessed" with some accepted "poker truths", and justifies every move with a reasonable motive. As poker changes we must change too.The session "Hand analysis " with 25 hands played is fantastic.
It seems we enter inside Dusty mind when he's giving explanations about game lines adopted in different scenarios.The
I liked it very very very much and recommend it like Sklansky, Harrington and Moshman books.
I also recommend it to any losing small stakes player who wants to improve his game.
The book describes how the real WINNING game is played in the last years, mostly at small stakes and medium stakes.
The price is also excellent.
Dusty Schmidt is one of the best and most succesfull cash games players in the world. He wins millions of dollars every year by multitabling
medium stakes and high stakes at Pokerstars. He has a really very strong mind and he is a real winner in life. He managed to overcome serious healt problems, and difficult situations and become a poker legend.
He is not like some authors that wrote books with "winning strategies" but they don't play real poker ... So his advises and his game are really in the top of world class level. He is great and his books also are great.
The book is also very well structured.
The book has only two negative points.
One negative point of the book is that uses Phil Helmuth's name and reputation as a funny trick to increase its sales and "attacks" (with humor) some statements that Phil Helmuth wrote on his very good begginers book "play poker like the pros". These Phil Hemluth statements was advice for totally beginners who want to play LIMIT holdem (in the next chapters Phil Helmuth provides an "indermediate" and a "more advanced" strategy for beginners) and this book is for NO LIMIT Holdem. For example Helmuth wrote "raise to find out where you stand" for some specific cases on LIMIT HOLDEM FLOPS, where this advice is correct, because the raiser has to put only one small bet more for raising than calling. The book presents the advise as it was for NO LIMIT flops, where it is not applicable as you can not raise one small bet.... Helmuth also says that someone who has never played any holdem game in his life and want to enter a LIMIT holdem game to see what it it, could start by playing "only 10 top hands" ignoring position. But in the next chapters explains position to the total novice reader and explains him how he can plays about 15%-17% of the hands, a very good advice for beginners. But Dusty's book presents that Phil Helmuth says in his book to "play only 10 top hands on LIMIT" and "top 13 in NO LIMIT" which is also a lie. Some humor is ok, but it is not nice to lie against Helmuth just as a trick to increase sales. Phil Helmuth playing style is always modern and innovative and has nothing to do with any of these fallacies ... Phil Helmuth has some negative points , like that he is not always playing his A game because it goes on "tilt" , likes to come late on tournaments he could win to lose on coinflips by playing very short stacked, thinks that he always have to win against worst players and goes mad when loses by variance etc, but his poker knowledge is always cutting edge and his book "Play poker like the pros" is great for beginners. It is also sure that Phil Helmuth is the best tourmanent player in the world for the last two decades ... The falacies described on the book have nothing to do with s many times World Poker Champion Phil Helmuth, but come from bad player misunderstandings, and some very "old style" players like "ROCKS" and "TOP PAIR+TOP KICKER=ALL IN" players and other like these.
And one more negative point is that it has same typographical errors in the answers of about 3 or 4 of the totally 60 questions. For example one question says "Warren Buffet says is better to be: a) an initiator, b) an immitator, c) an idiot, d) what does Warren Buffet knows anyway"
and it gives as correct answer the c) (an idiot!). There about 3 more mistakes like this in the answers of the questions and the typographicals errors can cause ...real falacies to the game of a player who doesn't have the experience to see that it is not the correct play that the authors recommend, but it is just a typographical error. They should be more carefull and correct these few errors before publishing the book.
That's why I give to the book only 4 stars.
If it had a hadn't these two negative points, it would be an excellent 5 stars book.
If you find the book lacking then its probably too advanced for you and Im sorry to say that you just dont get it.
Most of the concepts in the book I have already thought of but didnt have enough hands to justify what I already thought or simply did it intuitively. Many concepts that were set in stone I questioned why in the past and got slammed on forums years ago. I felt I was correct in my thinking. Some of the concepts I actually had before Dusty started playing. But I am amateur player and dont play 40 hours a week. So his hours of experience in a shorter time obviously are better than mine.
I have made some serious money in online/live cash games and MTTs. I am a winning player to give all of you a scope of where I am coming from.
It goes beyond the basic foundations and encourages fluid thinking which is something I try to get poker associates to think of.
