not a "manual" 11 avril 2004
Par Jakuda - Publié sur Amazon.com
Most of the negative reviews below come from LIMIT players who have probably read Sklansky's books and expect a lot of "if A then do B or C" and a lot of specific advice.
Big bet poker is a bit different in that it would be foolish to give such specific advice. You're going to cost yourself a lot of money (profit or just lose money) if you play cookie cutter poker.
Ciaffone and Reuben's book is good in that it teaches you about how to take into consideration your stack size, your opponent's stack size, and the pot size before acting among other important concepts. That alone is worth the cost of the book.
Regarding the review below: They recommending betting a set on the flop more in potlimit than in no-limit. Checking a set (when you have a pocket pair) in potlimit is going to limit your profits because if everyone checks behind you can only bet/raise the size of the pot on the turn. In nolimit, you can bet whatever you want whenever so checking isn't as costly. Also how does flopping a set when you have a pocket pair automatically imply there is a dangerous flop. In anycase, I ramble. Go to the twoplustwo.com forums to find other positive reviews of this book by MANY bigbet poker players.
Mason Malmuth also HIGHLY recommends this book for you sklansky and malmuth fans.

A great poker book 20 février 2005
Par M. Grapenthien - Publié sur Amazon.com
I bought this book several years ago, before the no-limit craze, when pot-limit and no-limit were played in tournaments and in Europe, and limit dominated American poker. At the time, I wasn't sure what to make of it since I had little experience with big-bet poker, so I asked the opinions of a few players I have a lot of respect for. I knew it was good, but I was a bit surprised at the superlatives in their praise.

I've gone back and read bits and pieces many times since then, and longer chunks a few times. It really is excellent. Even with just a few minutes, you can get something from it - inspiration for a new play, quick insight into a new game, etc. There's a good discussion of the differences between pot-limit and no-limit, which is very useful for those with experience at one trying to adapt to the other.

A few of the other reviews are misguided, which prompted me to add my own. The long review criticizing specific advice takes both the situations and recommendations out of context. As another reviewer pointed out, the recommendation to play big hands strong on the flop is in a discussion of pot-limit, not no-limit, where you can't just check to the river and then move in if the pot is still small.

Another criticism was the idea of reraising all-in with a big draw on the flop. Obviously, this is a bad idea as a regular play, but that's not what they are recommending. As an occasional move against certain opponents, this can be a very powerful move. The other player may have been bluffing, and fold quickly. Or, he may have a good hand, like top pair/top kicker, and lay it down. Even if you get called, you still have around a 35% chance to win. And after you show down a drawing hand after moving all-in, you'll get more calls on your big made hands in the future.

Another supposed "criticism" is that the book doesn't cover hold'em exclusively. The recent hold'em craze is relatively new, driven by the WPT on television. Before a couple years ago, even most pro poker players didn't play much no-limit hold'em. Then and now, people play lots of other games. That this book covers many games shouldn't be a surprise: it lists six games on the cover in big print, under "COVERING". The people who keep making these complaints (several criticize Super System 2 for the same thing) must be new to the poker world in the past year or two.

The section on "strip deck poker" that another reviewer complained about as obsolete takes up barely over one page. It just talks very briefly about the rules and what proper strategy would be, and then adds a quick story about a hand. In that page, Reuben even says, "I am glad to say this game is little-played now. It is excellent for cheating, as two players can easily communicate to each other what their hole card is." I thought it was interesting.

Ciaffone is an American with decades of experience playing, teaching, and writing about poker, with a fairly conservative playing style. Reuben is English, where pot-limit is just about the only form played, with a super-aggressive style. Both have impressive poker resumes, and their contrasting playing styles provide useful perspective.cover odds, percentages, or have

This is not a book for beginners. It doesn't charts of what starting hands to play, and doesn't make blanket statements about what to do. It assumes you already play fairly well and are looking to improve to a higher level. It serves that purpose well, and is even interesting reading, with a few jokes thrown in - unfortunately, very rare for a good poker book.

Great definitive guide for big-bet poker! 3 décembre 2004
Par Real Poker Advice - Publié sur Amazon.com
Pot-Limit & No-Limit Poker is currently the best book on big bet pot-limit and no-limit poker. The big bet involves a lot of human elements (intimidation, trickery, bluffing, etc.) that the more technical limit game does not. It's very easy to master the limit game with expert play, but it's much harder to apply the same techniques and expert formulas to the big-bet game. If no-limit or pot-limit is your game, read this book!

It's a helpful book, but it's old 1 février 2006
Par Cottonmather0 - Publié sur Amazon.com

This book is good, but it's not for beginners. It used to be that it was very hard to find a NL holdem game anywhere, even in Vegas, and thus when the authors wrote this book the target audience was experienced limit players venturing into the NL waters for the first time. This book isn't going to give you a long list of starting hands and a checklist of actions for every conceivable situation. If you want something like that, TJ Cloutier's NL book or even Super/System are better choices. This book is more about learning to change your mindset from rigid and rote limit play to creative and strategic NL play. It may be a little bit outdated in that regard since I now know many people who have never played anything BUT no limit, but unless you have been playing poker for a long time it might be a little bit over your head.

Old School Poker. 27 décembre 2005
Par Bernard Chapin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is the second offering by Stewart Reuben I've read. Previously, I finished How Good is Your Pot Limit which I found surprisingly good. Stewart is an old school pro whose prime was far before the current poker boom. You won't see him on ESPN or the Travel Channel, and many of the examples he cites are from the eighties. However, he is just as insightful as those in the limelight today. As a writer, he is charming and interesting. With Bob Ciaffone, I am less familiar, but his reputation is well known. He certainly does not disappoint here.

This title of the book is slightly misleading. It could most accurately be described as "Selected Topics in Pot-Limit & No Limit Poker." Unlike, Advanced Hold `Em and the 2005 Harrington books, there is not a tight or consistent narrative here. Forty-three mini chapters concerning various issues in No Limit and Pot Limit Poker are offered. Notice that I said, as does the title, poker as opposed to hold `em. The authors, in this edition, added three pages of hold `em specific material to make the work more current, but that still might not be enough for some who have absolutely no interest in razz, stud, or Omaha. That's a shame though as being aware of other forms of poker undoubtedly makes one a better player.

Overall, Pot-Limit & No Limit, despite its bare-bones approach, extensively enlightens readers concerning the intricacies of expert level play. At its best, these discussions are extremely technical and situation specific. It's hard not to profit from surgeon like advice like the 5/10 rule for calling raises. I've heard that one cited by players many times. Although, Stewart's brief psychology chapter was my personal favorite. I consider myself fortunate for never having to have played against him. I also admired the fact that he concedes that much of poker simply cannot be verbally explained to beginners. There is an intuitiveness within the successful rounder which no manual can instill.
