Poker may be perceived as "easy money" since it appears to rely solely on two factors: luck and bluffing skills. However, what most people don't know is that success in poker lies less on chance and more on strategy.
First off, in a fair game, players have no control whatsoever on what cards they would be dealt. There is an element of risk. Second, each participant has to make do with what they have. This necessitates the use of complicated tactics and proper management skills. Lastly, this is when the actual game begins: the art of manipulation. It requires meticulous attention to every detail - from the bet size to the table image of the opponent. Basic as they are, veterans utilize these skills to ensure victory. It takes a fair grasp of the game to master all these.

I learned, and was reminded of, some great poker strategy in this short read.
Short and sweet. Good to hear a female narrator on this subject--nice voice.
Easy to listen to in one sitting; or listen to particular sections for motivation going into a game.
I was unimpressed by this basic strategy book. It seemed like the reader didn't know much about the game based upon her saying "a-k, a-q, a-j....." instead of Ace King, Ace Queen, Ace Jack...
I try to pick up at least a few ideas from every book, yet can't state a single thing learned from this one.
