Publisher's Summary

Many poker players can make good decisions at the table with a reasonable frequency. Nevertheless, there are numerous situations where even very experienced players behave in predictable ways. These deeply-ingrained habits lead them to make mistakes. The problem is that these situations won't often arise at the table by chance - you have to make them happen. Exploitative Play in Live Poker is a ground-breaking work that teaches you how to create the circumstances where your opponents will be likely to blunder and how to exploit them when they do. 

To achieve this you will need to put to one side starting-hand charts, balance, and GTO (Game Theory Optimal) play. Instead you will incorporate new concepts that may well place you outside your comfort zone. However, your style will now be forcing the other players at the table outside of their comfort zone and, unlike you, they won't know how to adapt. 

Learn how to:

  • Counter the auto-continuation-bettor
  • Develop a powerful donk-betting strategy
  • Use the overbet, the check-raise, and the three-barrel effectively

As well as being a highly successful player, Alex Fitzgerald runs a poker consultancy that serves more than 1,000 professional poker players in 60 countries. As part of this work, he has very likely trawled through more hand history databases than anyone else. This gives him a unique insight into how players really play, especially when placed under pressure and forced into unfamiliar situations.

Change your game!

Over the last 15+ years I’ve read books by Doyle, Helmuth, Harrington, Gordon, Cairo, Little etc. the list goes on. This book goes beyond hand ranges and tells. If you’re a student of the game and don’t want to get left in the dust as the game evolves, then this is a MUST read/listen. Alex also sends daily emails that keep you and your game in check!

Good Content

For the most part, I enjoyed the book. The author has a unique, data-driven perspective on the game.
My only complaint is his pronunciation of the word button. Instead of the common pronunciation, "but'n", Alex says, "budden." If you heard someone say budden in a casual conversation, you wouldn't give it a second thought. However, this is a poker book, so you hear it a couple of hundred times. It got so that every time he said it my brain would derail for a minute or two and I'd lose focus on the discussion. Aaaagh!
Even so, I still recommend the book. His personal perspective on poker and life at the end of the book are interesting and sound more like a biography than the usual condescending garbage that we get from most poker book authors.

Atypical and Awesome

Alex's book is not your typical poker book: no hand ranges, no charts. Instead it discusses the real stuff that makes poker the fun exciting game it is: exploiting your opponents. The explanations and examples are easy to follow and great to put in action.
I hate to say it, but it's an excellent poker book for a "reg" to read.....but I wish you wouldn't!
In addition, his narration is lively and engaging.
