Publisher's Summary

The allure of poker is not something that can be attributed to romanticized movies and TV shows alone. Although, of course, watching Joe Cool, poker-faced mafia types on HBO, pushing their chips toward the center of the poker table with a haughty “all in”, got most of us curious to know more.

Texas Hold'em has become the most popular variation of poker played around the world in people's homes at friendly gathering poker nights, in casinos, online, and on TV. It's everywhere - certainly not just in Texas.

Whether you are aspiring for a seat in a friendly, or competitive, poker game, or you just want to know what all the fuss is about, this book is designed to teach you everything you need to know to get started and to start winning. You'll learn all the basic rules of the game, including definitions for poker lingo and how to recognize a winning hand. Most importantly, though, you will learn when, and how, to bet big; strategies for feeling out the other players; and how to increase your chances of taking the whole pot.

So, when you're ready to get started and have practiced your most believable, serious poker face in the mirror a few times: Game on.

Strictly basic

I have nothing to say other than the title, which says it all. What you really need to know is betting strategy, which seems hard to come by.
