One Terrific New Book; Two Terrific Upcoming Guests

by Lou on March 29, 2008

Last Thursday, March 27, my guest on Keep Flopping Aces, my Internet radio show that broadcasts every Thursday night at 6 p.m. Pacific Time (9 p.m. EST) on Rounder’s Radio, was Nick Christenson, who along with Russ Fox authored the just-released book Winning Strategies for No-Limit Hold’em.

The book is incredibly well-written, which makes it easily understandable for all readers, including those players who are just beginning to make the transition form fixed-limit to no-limit cash games.

Thei authors overriding themes are that every hand tells a story, and that astute players need to base strategic decisions on stories as they unfold at the poker table. They also discuss playing styles, the immense differences between no-limit games with a capped buy-in and those that are deep-stack games, and playing small-ball poker

The other major theme is bet sizing, a topic they devote 70 pages to, and it’s well worth reading. I have no vested interest in this book, but it is a terrific addition to the poker literature and is a book that all no-limit players ought to read.

Winning Strategies for No-Limit Hold’em is one of the best poker books I’ve come across in a long time, and I highly recommend it. You can go to http://www.roundersradio.com/ and listen to my interview with Nick Christenson.

This week, April 3, my guests will be the First Lady of Poker, Linda Johnson and Jan Fisher (pictured at a press conference in Singapore a few weeks ago). There’s almost nothing the tow of them haven’t done in the poker world, playing, dealing, tournament directing, winning a WSOP bracelet, publishing a magazine, running a poker cruise business, and they’re now involved in bringing poker to Asia.

I’ve know Linda and Jan for nearly 20 years, so this should be a terrific show—with a look down memory land as well as a look into poker crystal ball for what the future holds.

Tune in. You’ll enjoy it.
