52 Tips for Texas Hold ‘em Poker

If you have watched any “World Poker Tour” (WPT) broadcast, you have heard Hold’Em described as a game that takes a minute to learn and a lifetime to master. That is really true, and a large part of the appeal of the game is that you can sit down and learn how to play almost immediately. This book provides someone who has played little or no limit Hold’Em with a sound basic strategy that will add to both his enjoyment of the game and his bottom line. You must walk before you can run, and this book teaches those first steps.
