A lot of poker books promise instant success, screaming âCrush the online gamesâ or âHow I won a million dollars playing pokerâ. They suggest that poker is actually rather easy and that anyone with five minutes to spare can quickly gain expertise in the game. But you know that these claims simply arenât true.
To achieve mastery of poker is not easy â it requires a great deal of deep thinking. Expert Heads Up No Limit Hold âem is a unique and remarkable book, providing a clear framework with which to analyse the game. The author Will Tipton, a PhD candidate at Cornell University, demonstrates how decision trees can be used to model complex poker decisions. Starting with simple preflop-only situations, he moves on to consider deeper concepts such as balance, the analysis of ranges, and the theory behind optimal bet sizing.
