No-Limit Texas Hold'em
by Tom McEvoy
Written by Haunted Poker for exclusive
This poker strategy guide is written by tournament
veteran and WSOP Main Event Champion Tom McEvoy. This particular book
focuses on no-limit tournaments and takes you from
starting hand standards to gameplay strategy. This is a
great pickup for a beginner getting into tournaments but
advanced players will also find strategic value in
Useful sections include advice on how to play specific
hands from each position during tournament play. If you
find yourself in a tournament rut, this can be a handy
reference point to get your game back on track. Sections
include ways to play big pocket pairs, baby pocket
pairs, and Ace-x.
While the strategy in this book mostly focuses on
tournament play, fixed-limit players might find it to be
a good introduction to the no-limit format in general
for use in ring games as well since an entire section is
devoted to the differences between limit and no-limit
Hold'em. McEvoy gives useful information on how much you
should bet and when - which is what most players new to
no-limit have trouble with.
Overall, this book is probably best suited for players
who want to learn how to play no-limit tournaments
properly. If you've only played at limit tables before,
I highly recommend this as your start to the format.
Advanced players might not find too much in-depth
strategy that they don't already incorporate into their
game, but beginner's and new tournament players should
especially pay attention to the opening section on how
to play specific starting hands.
