    Ask the great poker players how they'd play a hand and the answer is always "it depends." That answer can be infuriating. But guess what? It really does depend. The key to becoming a great poker player is in knowing what it depends on. At last there's a book that gives you that answer. Poker is a game of so many variables; table position, flop texture, the number of players in a hand, the personalities of your opponents, and so much more.

    What made the experience of listening to Decide to Play Great Poker the most enjoyable?

    I had read this book before, reading bits and pieces here and there. I thought I was applying it in my play, but I was doing it totally incorrectly and - more importantly - inconsistently. However, I knew enough to recognize that there was something there that was missing from my game that I hadn't learned from the many other poker books I've read.

    So - in order to try to really learn it, I downloaded the audiobook version and started listening every day during my commute. I am now into my third listen, and I'm still learning and getting better. My tournament results have sky-rocketed, helped no doubt by a healthy dose of winning races in key spots. This audiobook has paid for itself about 400-500X by my estimate.

    However - and WAY more importantly - I am 1000% more comfortable at the table and positive of the moves I make. This confidence is contagious and helps me to project a much more scary table image and get way more respect. No longer am I picked on as the weak-tight fish just hoping to make it into the money. I recently won my first tourney in the local card room, and one of the players in the final 3 told me "I had a feeling early on that it would be me and you in it to the end."

    This book had not only made me a better poker player, but it's made me a happier poker player. Now that is a good poker book.


    What other book might you compare Decide to Play Great Poker to and why?

    The only other book that I have found is key for a very beginning player is Dan Harrington's series.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The advice on pre-flop raising and not playing suited connectors gave me the most immediate improvement.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No - but I do hear Annie's voice in my head when I'm at the table some times. I guess that's kinda weird.
