Publisher's Summary

Want to make more money playing poker? Only 10% of poker players are profitable, but the solution is easier than you think. One of the most important and overlooked aspects of the game is your range. This pertains to what hands you will and will not play. Of course, everyone will play AA, KK, QQ, and AK, but how far should that range stretch?

Through trial and error, I have tested range theories for years. It didn't take long to find one that led to a very high winning percentage, but the wins weren't big and I wasn't getting a lot of action. This is NOT a negative if you play often and want small yet consistent wins. However, if you want to maximize your profits, then applying the adjustments I have made to this range should greatly increase your odds of long-term success.

In this book, I don't just describe the perfect range. That would be boring. I'm not into boring. Instead, I tested the perfect range in 23 live cash games and three live tournaments. In order to add some flavor, I played in poker rooms in Florida, North Carolina, Atlantic City, West Virginia, and Connecticut. I was undercover in every instance. I also included my on-the-felt and off-the-felt misadventures, which I seem to have a knack for.

Everything written in this book happened. I gave all characters I came across nicknames, but if you play poker in any of the states (or city) mentioned above, then it's possible that you will hear about someone you know, or maybe even yourself. My first poker strategy book, Poker Notes, has received excellent feedback and sells consistently. I'm glad to hear it's making a difference for people. I think The Perfect Range is even more valuable! If you stick to this strategy without veering off course, it should lead to greatly improved results on the felt, especially if combined with the strategies covered in Poker Notes and Poker Blog.

Solid ABC Donkey advice, BUT....

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Not really! The advice was solid, for low-limit games, which is the audience, some of his stories focused on juvenile humor and cussing, while I have no issue with swear words, seemed pointless.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

More about how he determined the range and playing ABC style poker. Stories make me think this guy is flippant, a jerk and not someone I would want to enrich his pockets by buying his products.

Do you think The Perfect Range needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

I think it needed follow-up work as far as how thing range was selected, more on the rationale for this theory, and less on stories about rest stops and various bathroom incidents

Fantastic.

I love this narrator. He's so natural. I have listened to a few of his books and they are great. This book is useful. I don't play often but I want to be a little more confident when I do.

Worth the listen

Listened to this in the car travelling around for work and really enjoyed it.

Whilst it's not a huge strategy book the range described is a great starting point for any would be player.

The stories from the sessions played are entertaining and the way the writer played the hands offers insight into how to apply the range.

Big on strategy, no, so not really for those looking for in depth analysis but as a casual listen it's excellent and I definitely picked up some pointers from it and besides listening to someone drone on and on about EV etc can end up giving you a sore head so the lighter format is a refreshing change.

Throughly enjoyed it.
